Global paedophile ring busted in Paraguay “may contribute to clarifying Madeleine case”

A global paedophile ring with links to missing Madeleine McCann has been dismantled in a major police ‘bust’ in Paraguay. One of the top figures in the gang is a known contact of sex offender Christian Brückner – currently ‘in the frame’ for Madeleine’s abduction from a holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in the Algarve a little over 14 years ago. Say reports, Paraguay’s police commissioner Nimio Cardozo believes “there are elements whereby our security agencies could contribute to clarifying the Madeleine case.” For now, Christian Brückner is in jail in Germany (serving out a sentence for the rape of an American pensioner in Praia da Luz in 2005), but has not be charged nor questioned over Madeleine’s disappearance.
