Australian authorities on Wednesday were investigating the father at the center of a Thai surrogate baby scandal who reportedly is a convicted pedophile. It wants to determine whether his young daughter is at risk.

The man sparked global controversy for apparently abandoning his Down syndrome infant boy, Gammy, in Thailand and taking only the boy's healthy twin sister home to Bunbury, south of Perth - although he and his wife dispute the circumstances.

In another twist in a story that has generated fierce debate over the moral and legal basis of international surrogacy, reports emerged on Tuesday that the man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been convicted of sex offenses against children.
