A man who filmed himself sexually abusing his twin baby surrogate daughters says he knows he is stupid and sick.
The father pleaded guilty to 37 charges including trafficking children, producing pornography and 20 counts of sexual penetration of his own child, 9 NEWS reports.
His defence barrister said he knew what he did was wrong and told police in an interview he was glad he’d been caught.
“I’m not upset at getting caught, I’m upset that I’m stupid and sick,” the man told police.
“I love them so much and I don’t know why I did it,” the man told police.
“I love them so much and I’m never going to see them again.”
Police say the man brought his biological twin daughters to Australia with the intention of using them for sex.
The court previously heard the twins were four weeks old when their father’s eight-month campaign of sexual abuse began – after he had already spent years abusing his nieces from when they were aged four and six.
Following a raid on the man’s house, police recovered more than 26,000 child exploitation pictures and videos including images and footage of the man abusing his twin daughters and nieces.
“I have destroyed and ruined innocent lives,” the man said.
“I will never be able to forgive myself.”
The case continues.
