North Wales Police contacted by 105 alleged abuse victims

An investigation into historic cases of child abuse in North Wales care homes has received information from 105 alleged victims since beginning work in November.**

**Operation Pallial has heard from victims in 22 police force areas across the UK and Ireland.

Operation Pallial is investigating new allegations of historic child

abuse, some from victims previously known about and some from

victims who have come forward for the first time.

All victims of abuse have a right to expect all allegations of abuse, no

matter how much time has passed, to be investigated professionally and

appropriately. We will do so.

Equally importantly, if offenders are still alive they must be identified,

investigated and brought to justice, with those who still have access to

children being prioritised.

– Detective Superintendent Ian Mulcahey, Senior Investigating Officer for Operational Pallial
