David Farnell, the father at the centre of a surrogacy row over a baby with Down Syndrome in Thailand, told Australia's 60 Minutes that he was no longer a risk to children.
Revelations last week that Farnell was a convicted sex offender exacerbated public outrage over the case. According to Australian District Court documents, he was jailed in 1997 for a minimum of three years for sex offences involving three girls aged under 13.
