Suspect Christian Brueckner speaks out



German pedophile Christian Brueckner is the suspect in Madeleine McCann’s disappearance but denies any wrongdoing in a letter written from his prison cell

Portuguese authorities officially declared him a suspect this week, just less than a month before the 15th year since Madeleine McCann’s abduction.

Brueckner was first named as a suspect by German police in mid-2020, after mobile phone records placed him in the same area the night Madeleine disappeared.

The prime suspect is currently in a high-security prison in northwest Germany serving a seven-year sentence for the rape of a 72-year-old woman in 2005.

McFadden says that Brueckner “shockingly” responded to her and a colleague about the recent claims in Madeleine McCann’s case.

“So, he does admit to the problems that he had as a young man, but he does not admit to the rape,” says the case researcher…

“He takes blame for a lot of the things that he did, but he straight out says, I have never killed anybody, and I have never raped anybody.”

Letter from Christian Brueckner to Isabelle McFadden

“He has an actual witness … that gives him a pretty strong alibi.”

“And we don’t really think that the Portuguese are going to charge him and we have to understand that the Portuguese are the lead on this case.”

“I have a feeling that he will end up being cleared.”

McFadden suspects the Portuguese police named Brueckner as a suspect so that the investigation can continue, despite no new breakthrough findings.

She adds that she has “doubts” about the parents and that the McCann family should not be ruled out as potential suspects due to some very “damaging accusations” available against them.

Madeleine went missing on May 3, 2007, from a Portugal holiday apartment she was staying at with her family, just a few days before her fourth birthday.

Her parents Kate and Gerry were having dinner at a nearby restaurant, situated on the resort.

In 2007, the parents were made “arguidos” or “named suspects”, yet when the Portuguese police’s investigation was archived in 2008, their status was lifted.

This year will mark the 15th anniversary of then three-year-old Madeleine’s disappearance from the Praia da Luz holiday resort in the Algarve, Portugal.

However, Brueckner remains the prime suspect in Madeleine’s disappearance and police investigations are continuing.

China conducts ‘punishment’ war games near Taiwan



China initiated military ‘punishment’ exercises in the waters surrounding Taiwan in response to the newly inaugurated President Lai Ching-te.

These drills come amid escalating tensions in the region, with Beijing asserting its sovereignty over Taiwan, denouncing the inauguration of President Lai Ching-te and labelling this one of several “separatist acts”, as reported by Reuters.

These military manoeuvres are seen as a show of force and a warning to Taiwan and its supporters against any moves perceived as challenging China’s territorial claims.

President Lai has repeatedly offered talks with China but has been rebuffed.

He says only Taiwan’s people can decide their future, and rejects Beijing’s sovereignty claims.
