Many thanks to Norma Moore on Twitter for helping me plug the gap in the Op Pallial arrests.
Officers from the National Crime Agency (NCA) today (Tuesday November 26) arrested a man from Cardiff, South Wales, on suspicion of child cruelty, gross indecency and assault.
The arrest forms part of Operation Pallial, an investigation into recent allegations of historical sexual abuse in the care system in North Wales, which is led by NCA Director General Keith Bristow.
A 65 year old man was arrested on suspicion of child cruelty, gross indecency and assault. The offences are alleged to have taken place against three boys, between 1970 and 1981, when they were aged between 10 and 12 years old.
The man has been taken to a local police station where he will be interviewed by NCA officers from Operation Pallial.
Today’s arrest is the sixteenth conducted by members of Operation Pallial. To date, one person has been charged with a large number of serious sexual offences.
