Richard Huckle, 30, a photographer from Ashford, Kent, admitted an “unprecedented and exceptional” 71 offences against children aged between six months and 12 years from 2006 to 2014.

He had faced 91 charges, with 23 children from mainly poor Christian communities in Malaysia’s capital, Kuala Lumpur, identified, though investigators believe he abused up to 200 young victims after persuading their families he was a respectable Christian philanthropist.

Dubbed as 'Britain's worst paedophile', Huckle first went to Malaysia in 2005 on a gap year teaching placement

He reportedly went to Cambodia the following year and began to take indecent images of children who were aged around three at the time while he stayed with a local family.

After his gap teaching placement, Huckle began to visit Malaysia regularly before he eventually moved to Malaysia permanently in 2010 when he enroled at the Kuala Lumpur Metropolitan University to study IT and later work as a freelance photographer.

He would use religion, and his photography and English qualification to gain access to the impoverish local Christian community before raping and abusing these Malaysian children.

The Telegraph reported that investigators found more than 20,000 indecent materials on his computer, including pictures and videos that he took of himself abusing girls and boys.

Here are some of the most shocking findings that were uncovered for the first time after Judge Peter Rook QC lifted the reporting restrictions:

1. Huckle wrote a manual explaining how to get away with abusing children in Asia

The police found that Huckle had put together a 60-page manual titled 'Paedophiles and Poverty: Child Love Guide', which was encrypted on his laptop.

It was a series of detailed notes in which he instructed readers on how to select deprived victims and elaborated on ways to avoid detections.

He planned to publish this online and he wanted to create a "Paedo Wiki guide", The Guardian reported.

2. He collected donations to fund his abuse

Huckle posted thousands of images onto child porn websites and used paedophile crowdfunding website, PedoFunding, to finance the abuse and allow other online paedophiles to watch in exchange for Bitcoins.

3. Huckle created for himself a system called "PedoPoints" to measure the scale of his abuse

The police found a "Pedopoints" ledger on Huckle's computer.

It was a way he documented the abuse he inflicted, by using this online scorecard that he devised to award himself points for each act of abuse against a child.

It is said that Huckle awarded himself a score of 1,305 in just over a year, where he gave himself different points based on the "15 different levels of depravity on children".

4. He bragged about his "achievements" online

In his blogs, Huckle bragged about abusing the same girl repeatedly between the ages of five to 12-years-old, saying: “It's quite amazing to have stuck with the same child lover for so many years, and I hope, from the images you have seen, enjoyed watching her grow."

“It's not often in child porn you can compare the bodies of a 5yo and a 12yo that are the same girl. I'm sure I'll have plenty more sex with (her) in the future.”

Of another victim, he wrote: “I’d hit the jackpot, a 3yo girl as loyal to me as my dog and nobody seemed to care”, adding: “I think we had sex like this about 15 times in the past four months.”

Details of the abuse were reported for the first time because investigators had sought a court order allowing time to make sure the victims were safe from other online sexual predators

Although his abuse lasted for almost a decade, the authorities in Britain was only informed of his offences middle of 2014, when the National Crime Agency (NCA) received a tip from Australia about his online activities.

They began liaising with their counterparts in Malaysia but claim jurisdictional issues meant they were powerless to act while he remained overseas.

They then discovered he was planning to return to Britain for Christmas and he was arrested on 19 December 2014 when he landed at Gatwick Airport.

“He never seemed off or anything like that. He just seemed like a normal person, just very quiet, didn’t really talk about home or things like that,” said Scott Chapman, who was in college with Huckle.

National Crime Agency (NCA) Senior officer James Traynor said: "Richard Huckle groomed those children. He groomed them to a point that he was certain no matter what he did to them they would not tell their parents about the abuse they were suffering from him."

He was described as 'a lone offender' and investigators said their inquiries into his crimes is still 'ongoing'.

Deputy head of operations Detective Superintendent Matthew Long said: "He was one of the most committed, manipulative, conniving paedophiles we've come across. He's been so committed he's been using a variety of grooming methods, there's no point that he would stop."

Huckle now faces up to 22 life sentences after admitting 71 charges, including rape, sexual assault, and sexual activity with a child in what investigators say is the worst case of its kind.
