Man sexually abused two children born via Thai surrogate, NSW court hears

A man has gone on trial in New South Wales accused of sexually abusing two children born via a Thai surrogate.

The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is charged with committing acts of indecency against the children, both under the age of 10.

He has pleaded not guilty.

In opening statements, the prosecutor told the jury the case was based on allegations the man encouraged one of his children to touch him while the other was present.

The court heard that after the matter was reported to police, officers discovered several computer disks owned by the accused containing deleted files of child pornography.

The defense argued the real issue is whether the event "actually happened at all".

The jury of 10 men and two women were urged to pay close attention to the children's evidence.

The accursed barrister said they must be satisfied that what they hear is truthful and reliable and not the result of "suggestion, concoction or imagination".

He also questioned whether the accused knew about the images found on his computer disks "given they had been deleted".

The Crown opened its case with one of the child victims as the first witness.

In a recorded police interview played to the court the child said the accused promised them a sticker if they did what he wanted and would smack them if they refused.

The man sobbed uncontrollably at times as he watched the interview.

The child referred to him as 'my horrible dad' and said their mother told them he would live in jail forever.

The child will be cross-examined on Wednesday.

The trial is expected to run for the rest of the week.
