Madeleine McCann suspect Christian Brueckner's lawyer says 'I'd let him look after my dogs, but never my kids'
'I certainly don't sleep as well as I used to. I've had threats, lots of them, some of them death threats,' added the lawyer
The lawyer of Madeleine McCann prime suspect Christian Brueckner himself admitted he would not trust his client with his children. Brueckner is the prime suspect in the disappearance of Madeleine McCann. Madeleine vanished at the age of 3 while she was on a vacation with her parents at a Portuguese resort in May 2007 and has not been seen since.
Brueckner's lawyer, Friedrich Fuelscher, claimed if he had a daughter he would definitely not allow the convicted pedophile to watch over her or look after her despite protesting his innocence. While speaking to the Mirror, Fuelscher shared, "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," he revealed. It was just last week that Fuelscher flew to Algarve. He said, "I have been to Portugal to investigate for myself. I went to check the locality there."
"I clearly went more openly and attempted to make my own conclusions on the sources of information available to me – for example, the Portuguese investigation files," he revealed. He added how he had found some new information that he is planning to reveal soon.
"I cannot tell you what it is - but it is big. It certainly surprised me," he said. Ever since Fuelscher took over the Madeleine case, his life has completely changed. "I certainly don't sleep as well as I used to. 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," he revealed.
"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," he continued. Brueckner is currently being kept in solitary confinement and cannot mix with other inmates as he has received many threats.
Fuelscher shared, "I am entitled to go and visit him but I only go in when I have something to discuss." He also shared, "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."
"This is for me a contradiction in itself," Fuelscher concluded. He added that there were some articles in both the British and German press which had been inaccurate in connection with Brueckner's conviction of the rape of an American woman, two years before Madeleine vanished.
We had earlier reported that the Portuguese police have less than two years to make their case against the prime suspect of Madeleine McCann's murder, Christian Brueckner, according to the missing girl's family lawyer. The police had announced that Madeliene could be dead, adding that pedophile Brueckner could be behind her possible murder.
The detectives had earlier revealed that they were convinced that Maddie was dead and knew how she was killed. They, however, do not know where her body is.
