Temporary Chief Superintendent Steve Cockwell, the Senior Investigating Officer said: “I am pleased with this verdict today, and hope that it will provide some sense of justice to the victims after all these years. This was a protracted investigation that forms part of a larger operation still in progress and involved a number of agencies. A dedicated investigation team was set-up to ensure a thorough investigation was conducted and that the victims were supported throughout the process.
