Operation Pallial, the National Crime Agency-led investigation into recent allegations of historical abuse in the care system in North Wales, is now investigating allegations from more than 200 people.
The number of people coming forward to support the independent investigation, led by Keith Bristow, Director General of the National Crime Agency, has increased by nearly a 100 since the operation’s Public Report on Progress in April.
Since the investigation began a year ago, (November 15, 2012), a total of 235 people have contacted the Operation Pallial team, of whom 204 have indicated that they are willing and able to support the investigation. The investigation continues to make good progress, with over 97% of complainants already having been video interviewed by specially trained officers.
Pallial has made a total of 14 arrests to date and one person has been charged with more than thirty serious sexual offences. The 13 other individuals arrested have all been bailed while enquiries continue.
Operation Pallial has been given the names or part names of around 100 alleged offenders, who are all subject to further investigation at this time, including 24 who are believed to have died. Even in these cases, information about them will be investigated by Pallial in consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service in order that victims can be updated.

Pity Pallial isn’t so supportive of those having already given interviews.
No counselling til after court, in a year or 3.
They trying to beat the suicide record of 10? (12 deaths last time around, maximum 10 suicides and 2 murders.)
keep up the good work pallial witnesses and police team.
14 cases of merit so far is a start ,plenty of work to do especially when you know of truth but need to establish proof.
