Six months on and the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) has refused yet again to provide details about its investigation into historical child sexual abuse in Fermanagh.
After allegations of abuse first emerged in The Impartial Reporter a special taskforce was set up by the PSNI to review every single case in the county. 
It’s understood specialist officers are now interviewing alleged victims every week and are still receiving new information, even after all these months.
Despite being asked questions on sexual abuse claims by this newspaper, the PSNI will not reveal:
• How many alleged victims in Fermanagh have been interviewed by detectives  
• How many alleged abusers in Fermanagh have been questioned by detectives  
• How many alleged abusers in Fermanagh have been arrested by detectives  
• How confident it is that links to alleged abuse in Fermanagh are being established
• How close it is to passing information on Fermanagh sexual abuse claims to the Public Prosecution Service 
Instead in a statement yesterday (Wednesday) a PSNI spokeswoman said: “Investigations into historical child sexual abuse in County Fermanagh are actively ongoing and therefore police are limited in the information they can provide at this time”.
“Working with and supporting victims to provide their evidence is central to this work and specialist Public Protection Branch detectives are working at gathering and reviewing evidence,” she said.
The spokeswoman confirmed that the PSNI receive and investigate reports of historical child sexual abuse, both recent and historical, in Fermanagh and right across Northern Ireland “on a daily basis” and said officers “remain absolutely dedicated to gathering all relevant information and evidence in relation to all reports made to us in the Fermanagh area and signposting victims to one of the many dedicated support services as the wellbeing of victims is first and foremost our priority”.
“We would encourage anyone who has been a victim to please come forward and speak to us or one of partner organisations trained to support victims. Every report of historical child sexual abuse is taken seriously. 
“You do not need to come into a police station to make a report. 
“You can report  directly to us via 101 or through a dedicated email address at and detectives will arrange to meet you at a time and place that best suits you,” she said.
