PETALING JAYA: The parents of British paedophile Richard Huckle (pix) begged police to take their son away after he confessed to his mother that he had raped children as young as three, reported the Daily Mail 

Prosecutor Brian O'Neill QC said that before being charged, Huckle was bailed under strict conditions to his parent’s home.

“His father had been at the airport to meet him and investigators had conducted a search of the family address while he was in custody,” the prosecutor was reported as saying at the second day of Huckle’s sentencing hearing on Thursday.  

“His mother questioned him about the allegations and he admitted to her that he had sexual activity with children aged three to 13.  

“His mother was extremely upset and extremely angry. She and his father called the police and asked them to take their son away, making it clear they didn't want him under their roof,” added O’Neill.  

Graphic details of dozens of sexual offences by Huckle emerged for the first time Wednesday as his sentencing hearing started in London.

Huckle faced a total of 91 charges including against 23 children in Kuala Lumpur, where he set himself up as an English teacher. He admitted to 71 of the charges.  

AFP reported that investigators found over 20,000 indecent images on Huckle’s computer. 

He also kept a ledger of his attacks and wrote a manual called “Paedophiles And Poverty: Child Lover Guide”.
