KUALA LUMPUR: Bukit Aman has identified two victims of convicted paedophile Richard Huckle.
Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said police would continue to work with their counterparts in Britain to identify more victims.
â€œYes we were informed in 2014 but they didn’t give us more details.
â€œWe were only told that he was a suspected paedophile and nothing more,” Khalid told reporters after attending the Police Cooperative Berhad annual general meeting on Thursday.
He said police here tried to get more information on Huckle from Britain but no other information was given as â€œEuropean countries by law cannot cooperate with nations that enforce capital punishment, so there lies the problem.â€
Khalid said police would request from the British authorities to interview Huckle who is serving 22 life sentences for 23 offences.
The British paedophile was sentenced by a court in London on Monday for sexually violating 23 children and babies in Malaysia, as well as children in Cambodia, for almost a decade.
Huckle, 30, will be in jail for at least 23 years for the crimes he committed on children aged between six months and 12 years from poor families in Kuala Lumpur.
He pleaded guilty to 71 offences and police found more than 20,000 pornographic images of children in his computer and camera when he was arrested at Gatwick Airport, London, in 2014.
