Prosecutors say they are confident to accuse Christian B, Madeleine McCann’s main suspect, for her disappearance.

The 43-year-old convicted pedophile and rapist, jailed in Germany, was identified by detectives earlier this year as the man responsible.

They had “hard evidence”. Madeleine was dead.

And they are also set to charge him with three other sex crimes on Portugal’s Algarve coast, where Madeleine disappeared at the age of three on vacation with her parents Kate and Gerry in 2007.

He is under investigation into the rape of Irish tourist guide Hazel Behan and indecent exposure to children.

Speaking to The Sun from his office in Braunschweig, Germany, prosecutor Hans Christian Wolters said: “It cannot be predicted at this time whether and when charges will be laid in these cases.

“I am also very confident in the investigation into Madeleine’s disappearance, but due to the scale of the case, the other proceedings can be expected to end sooner.

A source close to the investigation said: ‘Things are progressing in the case and there have been several promising leads and tips, in particular from British holidaymakers who were in Praia da Luz at the time of the disappearance of Madeleine.

“We hope for a breakthrough. At the moment, we don’t have enough to accuse him of Madeleine’s disappearance, but the evidence in the other cases is very strong.

Madeleine, from Leicestershire, was torn away a month after a ten-year-old German girl said a man had committed a sexual act in front of her on a nearby beach.

She came forward after seeing TV coverage of Christian B.

Hazel, now 37, was tied up, gagged and raped in her 30-minute apartment in 2004.

She suspects it was Christian B after reading his conviction last year for raping a 72-year-old woman at her home in Praia da Luz in 2005 in a similar sickening case.

Several children also reported that a man matching his description exposed himself in 2017.
