Abuse in Care: Man shares story of abuse at institution

From Morning Report, 8:44 am on 29 September 2020

A man who was wrongly identified as mentally disabled when just six years old, was then sent to a state institution where he was physically and sexually abused until the end of his teens.

It took until he was 74-years old before the man, referred to in court as Mr M, received compensation and an apology.

Reporter Andrew McRae has been at the Royal Commission hearings on Abuse in Care in Auckland.
