Decades of Horror - Haute de la Garenne

According to a news report by The Press Association, high-tech radar equipment was brought in to search the grounds and foundation of Haut de la Garenne.

In addition, it appears that new suspects have been identified within the last twenty-four hours.

A specialist military team brought in to help search for bodies at a former Jersey care home where a child's skull was found will finish their work.
The team used hi-tech radar equipment to search the foundations and grounds of Haut de la Garenne, the former home at the centre of a major child abuse investigation.
The inquiry, which is already one of the biggest in British history with more than 160 people claiming they were abused in the last 40 years, has grown further with more suspects being accused in the last 24 hours.
Police are expected to reveal how many suspects they have.
In the last week officers said more than 40 people are accused of a catalogue of sex crimes and now it is understood more people have been named by victims.
The results of the work carried out by the military team are also expected.
As donchais and I watch this story unfold in the international press, we are horrified and speechless with each new revelation. We are also asking for anyone who can give us some insight into the laws governing Jersey, and what will happen if/when individuals are arrested. How much information can we expect to be shared with the rest of the free world?
