    • Scotland’s National Sex Crimes Unit (NSCU), established earlier this year, has begun legal proceedings against a number of suspects.

      “This was one of our most harrowing and disturbing cases, but it clearly demonstrated the value of, and real need for, the unit,” said Derek Ogg QC, who heads the NSCU.

      “Until the police investigation revealed these results, we were unaware of the full extent of child exploitation going on in our own backyard.”

      The NSCU was established in March, and is the only unit of its type in Europe, with a team of eight prosecutors involved from the first complaint of a sex crime all the way through to its prosecution.
