The independent review chaired by Mrs Justice Macur DBE, which will consider the scope of the Waterhouse inquiry and whether any specific allegations of child abuse falling within the terms of the reference were not investigated by the Inquiry, has now commenced.
The Macur Review is one of two new enquiries relating to North Wales. Keith Bristow, Director General of the National Crime Agency, has been asked by the Chief Constable of North Wales to examine specific, recent allegations made in relation to historic abuse. The investigation, called Operation Pallial, will assess recently received information and the historic police investigation and provide a public report with recommendations to the force and Home Secretary by April 2013.
