German Christian Brueckner will be tried here for events that occurred between 2000 and 2017 in Portugal. These include rape.


German Christian Brueckner, suspected of the murder of young British woman Madeline McCann - known as Maddie - will be tried in his country for five other crimes and sexual offences, committed between 2000 and 2017 in Portugal, the court in Brunswick announced on Thursday. Currently in custody in Germany, he will appear in court from "16 February" on charges of three alleged rapes and two counts of child sexual abuse, while the investigation into his alleged involvement in Maddie's disappearance is still ongoing.

Detained in Kiel, in the north of the country, he was already convicted in 2019 for the rape of a 72-year-old American tourist in 2005 in the Portuguese village of Praia da Luz, where the British girl also disappeared on May 3, 2007 while on holiday with her parents and friends. Investigations into these facts are continuing and the German prosecutor's office has not yet indicted Madeleine McCann, known as Maddie.

Tried for rape

The five cases that will be tried in the trial scheduled for February took place between 2000 and 2017 in Portugal. These include the rape of a woman over the age of 70, committed between 2000 and 2006 and filmed by him. The victim, who was assaulted in her second home, had been raped and whipped. He is also being prosecuted for tying a 2000-year-old German girl naked to a pole between 2006 and 14, before whipping her and forcing her to have oral sex. Again, the scene was filmed.

The third case concerns the rape on 16 June 2004 in Praia da Rocha of a 20-year-old Irish woman whose home he had managed to break into through the balcony. The last two relate to sexual assaults against a 10-year-old German girl on a beach in the district of Faro on 7 April 2007 and, on 11 June 2017 in Bartolomeu de Messines, against an 11-year-old Portuguese girl.
