Operation Pallial: 19th Arrest



Officers from the National Crime Agency today arrested a 71-year-old man from the Ellesmere Port area of Cheshire, on suspicion of sexual assaults against two boys.

The arrest forms part of Operation Pallial, an investigation led by NCA Director General Keith Bristow into recent allegations of historical sexual abuse in the care system in North Wales.

The offences are alleged to have taken place against two boys, between 1977 and 1985, when they were aged between 13 and 15 years old.

The man has been taken to a local police station where he will be interviewed by NCA officers from Operation Pallial.

    between my rather shabby dutch and google translate (which isnt much better) it seems that there are similar concerning issues abroad.

    Excellent news. I look forward to hearing about charges.

    Gojam, we’ve seen 2 big stories recently in Exaro and the Sunday Express. Any views on these?
