Man suspected of 1970s child sex offences arrested in Malta
A man was arrested in Malta recently under a European Arrest Warrant in relation to almost 40 allegations of child abuse spanning nearly 40 years.
Acting on behalf of the National Crime Agency (NCA), Maltese Police Force officers arrested Bryan Davies, aged 70, from Wrexham, at an address in Gozo – an island in the Maltese archipelago.
He appeared at court in Valletta and consented to extradition to the UK.
Officers from the NCA's Operational Pallial, which is the agency's investigation into non-recent abuse in children's homes in North Wales in the 1970s and 1980s, sought his arrest as part of the ongoing investigation.
The warrant lists 38 offences, including 29 contact offences alleged to have occurred between 1976 and 1978. The nine remaining offences relate to alleged indecent images of children and causing or inciting sexual activity with a child between 2007 and 2013.
