Japanese man planned to father 1,000 children

A Japanese man suspected of fathering at least 15 surrogate children in Thailand planned to sire as many as 1,000, The Japan Times reported Friday.

The 24-year-old man said he wanted to produce between 100 and 1,000 babies, according to the co-founder of an organization that provides surrogate services in Thailand and other countries.

"The best thing I can do for the world is to leave many children," Mariam Kukunashvili of New Life Global Network quoted him as saying.

She said she refused to introduce him to more surrogate mothers, and reported her suspicions to the Japanese embassy and Interpol.

Thai police are investigating the man for possible trafficking offences, after it emerged that he had taken three babies out of the country in the past year, Police General Ek Ungsananont said.
