A vile rapist has been convicted of sexually attacking three young sisters over an 11-year-old period in Glasgow.

Matus Ferko, 44, raped two eight-year-old's and another victim was just 13-years-old at the time of the heinous attacks.

The High Court in Glasgow heard that Ferko carried out the offences between November 2004 and April 2015 at various addresses in Glasgow.

He raped one of the eight-year-old's once, but he repeatedly raped his other two victims.

He used violence, seizing hold of his victims and tying one girl's hands with rope and putting his hand over the mouth of another.

Throughout his trial Ferko denied the charges against him and claimed that all three victims were making it up.

Lady Rae described the girls' evidence as “very distressing” and told the jury after they had delivered their guilty verdicts: “No matter how many cases of this kind I have heard as a judge, one never gets used to it.”

She added: “You have been convicted of an appalling catalogue of violent sexual offending against children.

“The damage you have done to these young women is immeasurable. 

"You can expect a substantial period of imprisonment.”

Prosecutor Bill McVicar said: “An arrest warrant was issued in October 2017. The accused had returned to Slovakia and a European arrest warrant was issued in March 2018 and he was taken into custody in Slovakia and extradited on July 2018.”

Ferko, who is in custody in Barlinnie, was placed on the sex offenders' register.

He will be sentenced next month.

An NSPCC Scotland spokesperson said: “This is a shocking and disturbing case of a campaign of prolonged sexual abuse carried out against defenceless children.

“Ferko’s victims have shown enormous bravery in speaking out about what happened to them and we hope they now receive the support they need to recover from their appalling ordeal.
