A former Northern Territory Director of Public Prosecutions worker has been questioned about his part in the dropping of charges against a man suspected of sexually abusing children in Darwin.

Don Henderson has been accused of abusing Stolen Generations children at the Retta Dixon Home up to 1980 during Royal Commission hearings into child sexual abuse.

Charges were dropped against Mr Henderson in 2002.

Former DPP worker Michael Carey, who's now the NT's Acting-Chief Magistrate, was questioned on a memo he gave recommending charges be dropped.
