Mr Rees praised the family of Jack Taylor, who attended every day of the trial from beginning to end, calling them "a model of dignity".
A sex attack victim, who can not be identified, told the court he blamed himself for not reporting the assault sooner, saying that if he had spoke out, he might have been able to prevent Taylor's death. They also learned Port had then searched for "drug-rape pornography".
"He graduated from a fetish to a fixation, from a fixation to a compulsion", he said.
Friends, family and campaigners have lobbied fierce criticism at the police, saying they had urged officers to take their concerns seriously and act sooner.
Commander Stuart Cundy, of the Met's Specialist Crime and Operations command, said: "We have held community meetings and worked alongside organisations such as anti-violence charity Galop to issue safety advice for those who use online dating sites and apps or are affected by any of the issues raised".
A total of 17 officers are under investigation at this time: Seven for gross misconduct over their handling of cases, and 10 have been accused of misconduct, the Guardian reports. "Now we know they were wrong".
"It is important we establish whether the police response to the deaths of all four men was thorough and appropriate in the circumstances, including whether discrimination played any part in actions and decisions", explained IPCC Commissioner Cindy Butts.
Matovu, of Southwark, is yet to enter pleas to charges of supplying Class B drug mephedrone, Class C drug GHB, and offering to supply GHB.
Port was convicted and jailed for lying to the police, but was freed months later to kill again.
The police told the website that they were treating the deaths of the three young men as separate incidents that there was "nothing suspicious" to link them.
Trump election: Request for Wisconsin vote recount sent
Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski tweeted Saturday about the Clinton campaign's decision to back the recounts . The recount is a matter of principle and putting to rest questions that the election was tampered with or hacked.
"The fight goes on until all our questions are answered".
Port found the four men in London after plucking them off dating sites and dosing them with fatal amounts of GHB.
Port, 41, was found guilty of murdering four gay men and drugging and sexually assaulting seven others by a jury at London's Old Bailey on Wednesday.
It was just three weeks after she also found the body of another of Port's victims, Gabriel Kovari, 22.
Around August 23 2014, he moved to Port's flat in Barking where the defendant agreed to put him up on the sofa rent-free.
Less than a month later Port's third victim, Daniel Whitworth, was also found dead, slumped against a wall in Abbey Green. He planted a fake suicide note in Whitworth's hand and tried to frame him for the death of Kovari.
Police treated Mr Whitworth's death "at face value" and no efforts were made to verify the sham note, which turned out to be in Port's handwriting, prosecutor Jonathan Rees QC told jurors.
Peter Hirons, 48, sold drugs to the killer hours before he murdered forklift truck driver Jack Taylor, 25, with a lethal injection.
Port met his victims via social media.
The body of his victim, Daniel Whitworth, was found wrapped in a blue bed-sheet in the churchyard on Sep.
