Steve Messham is committed to co-operating with the new inquiry into sexual abuse in care homes around North Wales in the 1970s and 1980s, according to his lawyer Mike Gray.
This evening it remains Steven Messham’s intention to co-operate fully with Keith Bristow’s team conducting the inquiry announced by the home secretary . Mr Messham has spent many years living with the memory of abhorrent abuse perpetrated by individuals whom were never brought to justice.
Mr Messham contends that there were flaws in the original child abuse inquiry presided over by Sir Ronald Waterhouse and it is hoped that this new investigation will establish why this was the case and what lessons can be learned.
A judge who spent three years investigating child abuse in North Wales 'was surprised to be told his inquiry had not heard key evidence.'
The Children's Commissioner for Wales, Keith Towler, said he's handling 66 separate cases following North Wales abuse scandal.
A former resident of Bryn Estyn care home says he wrongly identified the Conservative peer as one of the men who carried out sexual abuse.
