Seven men who say they were sexually abused while pupils at a former Cardiff school in the 1960s and 1970s have received about £350,000 in payouts since 2011, BBC Wales has learnt... In total, the council has paid £197,500 in damages and £146,500 to cover the claimants' legal costs.

"Everything costs money of course, and given that most schools in the UK are associated with the State at some level then not only will it be us who pay for the criminal convictions to be made and the legal aid to enable a civil suit to follow, but it will also be us who pays the damages……. And the legal costs."

Rabbit Away

You can only wonder WHY our cost cutting legal system does not introduce these measures asap. Obviously, political ambition comes before Justice.
