TRIAL AGAINST MADDIE SUSPECT: COUPLE CONTRADICTS CENTRAL WITNESS
Braunschweig - In the trial against Maddie murder suspect Christian B. (47) has so far focused on the credibility of witnesses for the prosecution. Again and again there are contradictions and contradictory statements.

In the rape trial against Christian B., who is also suspected in the Maddie case, a couple has contradicted the central prosecution witness.

The 51-year-old woman and the 61-year-old man do not want to know the man considered to be the main witness in the trial at all, as they testified before the Braunschweig Regional Court on Wednesday.

The credibility of the 53-year-old is of crucial importance according to the course of the trial so far. He had spoken in court of a mutual acquaintance.

The prosecution witness claims to have seen the videos in his caravan and to have shown at least excerpts of them to another witness.

When asked about the whereabouts of the tapes, the caravan is a possibility, which is also said to have been on the couple's property in Portugal later on.

However, the two witnesses categorically ruled out a connection to the 53-year-old and his caravan in court on Friday.

The two main prosecution witnesses were not credible due to their changing testimony, said defense lawyer Friedrich Fülscher on Friday.

He had announced at the start of the trial that his client would ultimately be acquitted of all the crimes charged.

The accused B. is currently serving a seven-year prison sentence for the rape of an American woman in Portugal, to which he was also sentenced by the Braunschweig Regional Court in 2019.

International media follow the proceedings
The current proceedings are being followed by the international media because the sex offender, who has several previous convictions, is suspected of murder in the case of three-year-old Madeleine McCann, known as Maddie, who disappeared from a Portuguese vacation resort in 2007.

However, the Maddie case is not the subject of the current trial. The presumption of innocence applies.
 
The Sun seem to be the only brit rag commenting on the house clearence.


Just to show the level of reporting, CB was in jail in 2006 when he asked for his stuff to be cleared out, MM disappeared in as yet unexplained circumstances in 2007, how the heavens does clearing a flat previously erase any evidence linked to an as yet disappearance?


The monster allegedly ordered his former lover to 'clear out his flat' to erase any evidence that could lead to him being charged with Madeleine McCann's disappearance.

I missed that, what did he write ?
letter that the defendant received on the 1st. May 2006 from detention to Marina F.: He had asked Christian P. "several times to remove all traces from my house as soon as possible. (...) I am afraid that the police will become aware of the house. The more you find, the more you can accuse me of, the longer I sit here. So far I can still laugh at the stupid police. If the stuff doesn't disappear soon, they'll laugh at me."
A to-do list of the witness was also discussed. Finely noted on it: Orders that had to be done in the house when Brückner was in prison. "2-3 large boxes and a few garbage bags" were to be disposed of, wardrobe, bedside table and chest of drawers were to be searched, cameras and films should be taken with you.
 
Just to get an airing, we've had the German press , brit press now Olive.

The biker and his girlfriend have a different story to HeB. The bar owner disagrees with him. Dave Edgar can’t recall hearing from him. If the OG police statement is different from what he is now saying, I wonder where that leaves the case and how it affects the MM investigation.

Edgar says that he handed all his paperwork over to OG, so they could check the accuracy of DE's memory

Edgar was or is ex Royal Ulster and Cheshire police, he said in 2017 all files he had were handed to the met.

But Mr Edgar, who passed all his findings to the Operation Grange team when they took over the search in May 2011, said officers could be chasing up two old leads.

Maddie McCann suspect ‘told girlfriend to empty flat where he kept rape vids’

Maybe CB had one of those magic machiney things, like the one that Krugel man had, the South African policeman that the McCann's hired to find their child? Except instead of it having the power to locate a missing child with a hair sample, it instead gave CB the power to see into the future and he was just getting his house in order in advance?

That's possible, surely?

Bonkers, to put it very mildly. I had to look him to to recall his name (in response to Richard's post and an explanation for how CB could maybe see into the future) and had a read of that link. Quite extraordinary that this was indulged. Mark Harrison's (very restrained in the circs) 'likely to be of low value' remarks made me laugh though. :D
