Madeleine McCann prime suspect Christian B's lawyer says 'I wouldn't let him look after my kids'

THE lawyer of prime Madeleine McCann suspect Christian B has admitted he would not trust his client around his kids.

Friedrich Fuelscher insisted that if he had a daughter he would not let the convicted paedophile look after her.


Christian B was named the chief suspect in the disappearance of three-year-old Madeleine after mobile phone records placed him in Praia da Luz, Portugal, on the evening she went missing.

But despite his client protesting his innocence, Fuelscher told The Mirror: “I'd let him look after my dogs but I wouldn't let him look after my children or my daughter – if I had them.

“He could be my dogsitter, yes, but because of his record I would not let him look after my own daughter.”

Fuelscher added that he last week flew to the Algarve, where Madeleine went missing in 2007.

He claimed he uncovered completely new information which he plans to reveal in coming weeks.

“I cannot tell you what it is – but it is big. It certainly surprised me,” he said.

'I'VE HAD DEATH THREATS'

Christian B has a long list of crimes to his name, including child abuse, drug smuggling, theft of solar panels, burglary and rape.

And Fuelscher told how his life has dramatically changed since taking him on as a client.

“I certainly don't sleep as well as I used to," he said.

“I've had threats, lots of them, some of them death threats.

“Some of them have been online and some of them have been on the phone.

“I have pressed charges on some of them.

“I've also been told my life is in danger for looking into the Madeleine McCann case.”

Christian B, 43, is currently being kept in solitary confinement in a prison in central Kiel.

He cannot mix with other prisoners because of threats from fellow inmates and the only people he has contact with are wardens and the prisoner who distributes food.

“I am entitled to go and visit him but I only go in when I have something to discuss,” said Fuelscher.

“But I cannot – and will not – discuss what my client has told me.”

GERMAN COPS SLAMMED

In his interview with The Mirror, Fuelscher praised the professionalism of Scotland Yard in handling their inquiries – but slammed the German legal authorities in Braunschweig.

He said: “I praise the British investigation team and, from what I have seen so far, I certainly think they have good reasons to still treat this as a 'missing persons' inquiry.

“But from the German prosecutors I still have not received one single file in connection with this case.

“That is extremely unusual.

"It is not comprehensible how a public prosecutor's office can repeatedly approach the media and make statements like: 'We are firmly convinced that Christian B is the right person and the perpetrator and killed this girl', but then at the same time we are told that they don't have the crucial evidence."

Christian B is currently serving a one year nine month sentence for drug dealing.

He is appealing the aforementioned rape verdict and it is the subject of a complex European Court of Justice legal ruling which will be released next Thursday.
