A shamed police inspector jailed for "warped" child sex offences and a crime scene investigator exposed as a paedophile have been allowed to keep their comfortable public sector pensions. Despite being sacked in disgrace, both former South Wales Police inspector Geraint Lloyd Evans and ex-North Wales Police staff member Ian Wyn Williams are entitled to claim the cash.
The chief executive of a leading victim support charity last night blasted the move as "an outrage" and said the vast majority of police officers would be "appalled" by the revelations. The men are among four police staff in Wales convicted of child sex abuse since 2007.
They are able to claim the money because their crimes are not deemed to have been "gravely injurious to the interests of the state or to be liable to lead to a serious loss of confidence in the public service".
It was unclear whether the other two staff were allowed to keep their pensions after their convictions as Gwent Police and Dyfed-Powys Police refused to reveal the details in response to a Freedom of Information request.
