My bad, the email in the PJ files doesn't actually state that the owner was German, not sure where Sky got the Spanish info from though.
Not your bad, unless you're Martin Brunt!
The mail says that the owner of the German van had been traced. That owner declared being on holiday (in Spain) together with his very young daughter. (Where was the mother of this very young child?)
The mail does not disclose the nationality of the driver. Therefore one may deduce that the driver was from Germany.
Furthermore: witness Juan recognised CB as the driver.
I found shallow grave and surgical scissors at grim lair of Maddie suspect
And we all know that CB does not have any Spanish features ...
Would LE have questioned a Spanish
owner in relation to that sighting? If so, was that Spaniard telling the truth?
On holiday with his very young daughter who by the way had very Northern European features?
The owner must have been traced by the plates. The email is two-weeks after the sighting. I think the only way CB could have been driving 28 May and also able to cover up the investigation from Leicester Police is if the VW was registered to him in Germany. I don’t think it’s ever been confirmed that he was the actual owner of the VW so I’m not sure any of this works?
CB's ownership of the van at the time has indeed not been confirmed.
But the number plate could be the link here.
