A man who repeatedly raped his daughter, fathering eight children with her, has been jailed in Argentina.
Domingo Bulacio, 56, was sentenced to 12 years and eight months by three judges at a court in the northern city of Santiago del Estero.
His daughter testified that he had turned her into his sex slave at seven-years-old, when her mother left their home.
The abuse continued over the next 22-years, during which time, she gave birth to eight of his children.
“I was not the only one, there are relatives of his who do the same to their sisters and daughters,” the victim, now aged 30, told El Liberal newspaper after the trial.
Some commentators have compared him to Austria’s Josef Fritzl, 82, who imprisoned his daughter Elisabeth in the cellar of their home in the town Amstetten.
He fathered seven children with Elisabeth before she alerted authorities in 2008. Now 82, he was jailed for life the following year.
Bulacio was caught in January 2016 after his daughter took her youngest son, aged five, to the doctor when he became seriously ill.
The boy needed to stay in the local care centre for several weeks, during which time the daughter revealed to doctors who the boy’s father was.

It later emerged that they had all lived in a house with one room and Mr Bulacio raped his daughter in front of the children, newspaper reported.
When police went to arrest Bulacio, he had disappeared. He then spent 45 days on the run before being captured in a rural area around 25 miles south of the city of Loreto, according to local reports.
He underwent a DNA test to establish paternity and was subsequently charged with sex crimes.
