These include abuse of two young girls, who Scully allegedly made dig their own graves and filmed them being raped.
On Wednesday, Judge Jose Escobido declared Scully guilty of one count of human trafficking and five counts of rape by sexual assault of underage girls.
Acting Regional State Prosecutor Merlyn Uy said pending cases against Scully involved his former live-in partner Liezel Margallo, other accused and had different child victims.
The evil rapist fled fraud charges in Australia in 2011 and moved to Mindanao, where he would entice impoverished children with money and gifts.
Filippino news site Rappler reports that Scully abused Filippino children on Mindanao, filmed the crimes and sold the videos to clients in Europe.
The Philippines Justice Department reported in 2016 that Scully’s paedophile syndicate engaged in cybersex operations, using children below 12-years-old, and including a one-year-old.
Authorities have 45 witnesses in the case of the two girls, Daisy and Queenie.
