Authorities failed south Wales paedophile abuse victims
A report into how a paedophile was able to abuse four children over a period of many years has found failings by the authorities.
Staff showed a "lack of urgency" and did not follow procedures, even though the children tried to report the abuse.
The review follows the man's conviction for abusing the children in 2009.
The Neath Port Talbot Safeguarding Children Board has apologised to the children involved.
When in 2007 allegations of multiple rapes of four children were made it took over a year for the abuser to be arrested by South Wales Police. He is now serving a life sentence.
The children suffered serious sexual abuse and were let down by all of the agencies who should have protected them” Tony Clements of Neath Port Talbot Safeguarding Children Board.
The report makes over 60 recommendations to improve training, communication and procedures. Neath Port Talbot, Caerphilly and Pembrokeshire councils, as well as South Wales Police, were all involved in the case.
The independent review looked at the three councils.
'Sincere public apology'
Tony Clements, chairman of the board, said: "On behalf of everyone involved, I want to say how very sorry we are.
"Today, we make a sincere public apology to each of these children. The children suffered serious sexual abuse and were let down by all of the agencies who should have protected them.
"The safeguarding children boards involved in this review fully accept all of the recommendations and are committed to protecting the most vulnerable children in our society.
All of the agencies are working hard to make sure we are meeting the highest standards expected of us."
These children tried to speak out on a number of occasions but they weren't listened to and their calls for help were not heard”
Keith Towler, the children's commissioner for Wales said ,
"The children were let down "because the agencies failed to get the basics right"
"The report details how the lack of knowledge and understanding of roles and lack of communication between the 46 agencies who were involved at various times had led to four vulnerable children being left to suffer in silence.
"These children tried to speak out on a number of occasions but they weren't listened to and their calls for help were not heard. We cannot allow this to happen again."
Mr Towler is a member of the National Safeguarding Forum, and he said it was looking urgently at implementing changes.
Deputy Minister for Social Services Gwenda Thomas was "very saddened and distressed to read about the abuse and neglect that these children had to endure over many years and of its impact on their lives".
She has met the councils and police forces involved and said she "stressed to them the importance of them working together to address the concerns raised swiftly".
"Whilst, sadly, we have to accept that we will never eradicate all abuse, this is a door that will never be finally closed and I remain determined to take whatever action I can to ensure that children living in Wales can grow up in families and communities which will not tolerate abuse of children in any form," said Mrs Thomas.
Hywel Francis and Brian Gibbons, the MP and AM respectively for Aberavon, said they welcomed the acknowledgement by Neath Port Talbot social services of failures, and a willingness to "subject its own performance to diligent scrutiny".
"This is an important first step in making sure the important lessons of this case are learned."
Imelda Richardson Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales (CSSIW) said ". "If there's one overriding message to take from this case, it is that society has a moral as well as a legal duty to look out for young children to listen to them.” She also says that the victims were "let down by the professional services who have a duty to protect children."
The CSSIW is taking various steps, including an inspection of safeguarding children boards.

Please listen to the video and note the words of Gwenda Thomas AM who is up to her neck in the cover up that resulted in the "Illegal Kidnapping" of Lindas daughter at gunpoint from her hospital bed in America. She says
"There are evil people who live within our society who are prepared to do all manner of things to children to abuse them in the most awful way."
Damn right you are Gwenda.
You are one of them as well as the others who's names are highlighted above.
You all know what you are covering up.
You are all " Evil to the Core."

There is a little bit more than just the above video.
Brian Gerrish first mentions Lindas case after about 7 minutes into the link below.
and then for about the first 4 minutes of the following link.
There are thousands of equally tragic cases out there but NONE who have all the evidence to prove what has happened apart from this one.
The two local politicians Hywel Francis MP and Dr Brian Gibbons AM are both aware of this case and both are " deliberately aiding in covering up this case."They know that Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council Social Services acted illegally when they "kidnapped" Linda's 11 year old daughter at gunpoint from her hospital bed in America using a false and illegal passport.
Both have seen the evidence. Both have a "duty of care" to represent their constituent Linda Lewis.
Both run a mile when asked about this case, neither should be allowed to hold "Public Office."
Both should be in jail.
Dr Hywel Francis removed documentation from Linda Lewis and placed it into his office safe in front of witnesses obviously thinking that Linda Lewis had no other copies. WHAT A FOOL !
Dr Brian Gibbons was shown an X-Ray by Linda Lewis where he CORRECTLY diagnosed that Linda's daughter had "Zollinger Ellisons." This proves that Linda's daughter was indeed seriously ill despite Dr Dewi Evans and others stating that her " pain was imaginary ! "
Even more damning is that during the General Election Campaign Linda approached Dr Gibbons and said " Brian, You know that If I had given my daughter the 80mgs of Oral Morphine then my daughter would have been dead in the morning."
In front of witnesses he answered " Yes."
What type of men are these two to let this happen to an innocent mother and her family but most importantly to Linda's daughter who is now 24 years and still under the care of Social Services paid operatives.?
Quite simply "Scum."
Should anyone wish to contact the above guilty parties their email addresses are
firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
But some words of warning they will not give you a straight answer.
They will hide behind the following.
"There is an injunction on this case I cannot comment." Or "I cannot comment as there is an injunction in place to protect the childs identity."
1 - No injunction can be taken out to cover up criminal actions as per our evidence. This is an illegal injunction issued by a bent judge to protect the guilty and prevent them from facing justice.
2 - What child ? Linda's daughter is now 24, an adult and this is no longer an issue for the family courts.
The only people that they wish to protect is themselves for their terrible part in covering up this tragic and evil case !
Remember we have all the evidence.

The true and harrowing story of a 12 year old child "illegally removed " or "Kidnapped " at gunpoint from her hospital bed in America by agents from Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council Social Services using a false passport to cover up for medical negligence in South Wales in 1998.
Today Miss Lewis daughter is aged 24.
As a living,walking,talking witness to the extreme cruelty that she has suffered she is still being controlled by Social Services and the medical profession who do not want her reunited with her loving and caring family.
The evidence which has been carefully documented by the Lewis family has now been distributed on disc worlwide and is ready to be released when the time is right.
Corrupt Lawyers,Judges,Politicians,Doctors,Social Workers have all lied and conspired to block this case from entering a " Criminal Court " where the over whelming evidence held by us would expose them all for what they have done.
A lifelong injunction has been placed on this case to prevent the evidence from coming out and you the public seeing it.
A completely innocent Mother Linda Lewis has been threatened with immediate arrest and jail if any of her evidence is ever made public.
Despite this with Miss Lewis authority we will be releasing the evidence in due course.
