Man denies raping young girls in Wales over 60 years ago (Guardian)
An elderly man extradited from Australia to face charges he raped young girls in Wales more than 60 years ago has told a court that the claims against him are "all lies".
Reginald Davies, 78, is accused of 15 offences of rape and sexual assault over a 24-year period dating from 1949, in what is believed to be one of the oldest historic criminal cases in English legal history.
He denies attacking four women when they were children, while living at a series of addresses near Caerphilly in south Wales. The oldest of his alleged child victims is now 71.
Standing in the dock with the aid of a walking stick and wearing a hearing aid, Davies told Kingston crown court that the charges were "all false allegations". "'Nothing happened nothing at all," he said. "There's no truth whatsoever in it."
The trial continues.
