Prolific UK pedophile faces life in jail


LONDON: A British serial pedophile who preyed on impoverished children in a Kuala Lumpur slum and bragged about the abuse online faces life in jail on Friday when he is expected to be sentenced. Richard Huckle, 30, who has pleaded guilty to 71 counts of child sex offences, including rape, targeted children while posing as a volunteer working with Christian communities in the Malaysian capital. Huckle posted pictures of the abuse of boys and girls on website True Love Zone (TLZ), with the youngest victim believed to have been around six months old. “He’s one of the most committed, manipulative, conniving pedophiles I have come across,” said Matthew Long of Britain’s National Crime Agency (NCA). Huckle was snared by an Australian investigation on the dark web—a hard-to-access part of the internet often used for illegal activity.
