The main suspect in Madeleine McCann’s disappearance will never cooperate with the police, her lawyer says.
Attorney for convicted child rapist and molester Christian B Friedrich Fulscher said his client would not help cops try to find out what happened to the missing three-year-old.
“Before our client starts to cooperate with the prosecutor’s office, you can order holy water like a long glass in hell,” Mr Fulscher told the Sydney Morning Herald.
“It’s not unusual. It is quite normal not to speak to the police when you are suspected of having committed a crime. The prosecutor’s office must prove that a suspect committed a crime, not the suspect proves that he did not. ”
Mr Fulscher claimed that a cellar search on Tuesday at a Hanover property where Christian B briefly lived was an attempt to influence opinion ahead of an upcoming European Court of Justice ruling on his client’s extradition to Germany for a rape trial and conviction in 2019.
“I’m very surprised that they’ve started research there now and not much earlier. I was very surprised because the police had known for more than two years that the garden was being used by my client, ”said Mr Fulscher.
The lawyer said Christian B was not a “monster” – despite his list of previous crimes, including child sexual abuse, rape and drug offenses.
“I do not recognize the person described by the media. I am able to describe him as a very calm and friendly person when I speak to him in prison, ”said Mr Fulscher.
He also took issue with German prosecutor Hans Christian Wolters’ claims that Christian B’s phone had “ringed” in a reception tower near the Portuguese hotel where the McCanns were staying shortly before Madeleine’s disappearance.
Christian B allegedly bragged to a friend of having had a sex act in front of a room full of sleeping British girls.
The convicted sex offender told a close friend that he slipped naked into a holiday home in Portugal and began to masturbate.
He only fled when one of the teenagers woke up and started alerting his friends, it is claimed.
The friend broke his silence on the alleged incident after attending this week’s police searches in Germany, the Mirror reports.
He said: ‘The strangest thing he ever told me was to break into a room where four British teenagers were sleeping on the couch and the floor.
“He was naked and left his clothes outside and he was masturbating.
“When one woke up and tried to wake the others up, he panicked and ran away.
“He said he had run naked through town. He told it like a funny story.
Christian B was also filmed driving a VW camper van which he “converted to hide children” just weeks before the three-year-old went missing in 2007.
The camper van has become crucial evidence in the missing toddler case after witnesses said they saw the vehicle near where Madeleine was snatched from Praia da Luz.

In newly discovered footage, the 43-year-old pedophile can be seen laughing as he is filmed by three German travelers he had offered to drive from Portugal to Spain.
In the video obtained by Mail Online, Christian B can be seen wearing a white sweatshirt and black collar, joking while looking at a map on the back of the distinctive rusty motorhome.
The bizarre clip then shows the interior of the van as the suspect appears to be in high spirits after it emerged that he may have modified the vehicle to “hide children”.
