Madeleine McCann disappearance – Maddie’s parents welcome Christian B ‘official suspect’ news as new doc set to air

CHRISTIAN B was named on Thursday as an official suspect in the Madeleine McCann case – but he is refusing to co-operate with authorities.

Christian B, 43, was told he is now an ‘arguido’ in Portugal in his German prison cell on Thursday morning according to an insider.

The 44-year-old was handed a document informing him he was being made an arguido over the British youngster’s May 3 2007 disappearance from her Algarve holiday apartment.

Speaking directly about the 44-year-old German for the first time, Kate and Gerry said in a statement: “We welcome the news that the Portuguese authorities have declared a German man an arguido.

“This reflects progress in the investigation. Even though the possibility may be slim, we have not given up hope that Madeleine is still alive and we will be reunited with her.”
