Man charged – major breakthrough in Madeleine McCann’s case



A man in Germany has been charged in connection with the disappearance of British girl Madeleine McCann nearly 15 years ago

This comes as German paedophile Christian Brueckner has been named as a suspect in Madeleine McCann’s disappearance.

Portuguese authorities officially declared him a suspect yesterday.

This comes only months before the 15th anniversary of the young girl’s abduction.

ABC reports a man has been charged in Germany, according to the Portugese prosecutor’s office.

The man’s identity has not been revealed.

Previously, Maddie’s parents had both been labelled as suspects when she disappeared in 2007 but this was lifted when the investigation was dropped by Portuguese police in July 2008.

Some are suspecting that the investigation is being accelerated due to Portugal’s strict 15 year limit for a murder charge unlike Germany which has no time limit.

Brueckner’s lawyer says “the step taken by the Portuguese authorities should not be overrated”.

He says “Without knowing the Portuguese legal situation in detail, I assume that this measure is a procedural artifice to stop the statute of limitations threatening in a few days.”

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 Maddie disappeared.

This prime suspect is currently in a high security prison in northwest Germany serving a rape sentence.

Maddie went missing in May 2007 during a family holiday in Portugal, where she was staying in a holiday apartment while her parents went out for a meal nearby.

Ukraine prepares for a summer of violence



Is support for the war waning after the conflict has surpassed 1-year and millions of dollars?

After a Russian air assault on Kyiv in which one civilian was killed, residential buildings in wealthy districts of Moscow were hit by multiple drone strikes injuring two people.

The Kremlin is claiming that most of the drone strikes which happened during broad daylight—were intercepted.

A Russian politician said the attack on the capital was the most dangerous since World War II.

Russia says Ukraine launched the attack and has vowed to bolster their air defenses.

Meanwhile, Ukraine is denying direct involvement, having just recently suffered three air attacks within a 24-hour time span.

Last month, leaked Department of Defense documents revealed possible weak links in Ukraine’s military campaign against Russian forces.

Russian President Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine with tens of thousands of troops more than a year ago and there appears to be no end in sight.

“I think there is a great risk”: will AI steal our jobs?



Artificial Intelligence has become an increasingly powerful and pervasive force in our modern world.

Artificial intelligence is not a new concept. However, the growing advancements have the potential to revolutionise industries, improve efficiency, and enhance the quality of life.

Along with its promising advancements, artificial intelligence also brings certain risks and challenges that must be acknowledged and addressed.

It has become the focus of lawmakers, who are working towards greater regulation of the sector.

U.S. and European Union officials recently met in Sweden to weigh up the benefits and challenges of artificial intelligence, and other emerging technologies.

“The AI process is creeping up on us,” said Dr Keith Suter, who is a global futurist.

“You’ve got competition between companies.”

It’s almost like some of us can see this raft that’s heading towards the rapids and a disappearance towards the waterfall, and we’re giving a warning but it’s not being heeded because everybody’s in this race to get down to the river,” Dr Suter said.
