It has been almost ten years since Madeleine McCann disappeared on the evening of May 3rd, 2007.
In a recent report, British broadcaster Sir Clement Freud was exposed as a paedophile. It was also revealed that he owned a villa in the resort where little Madeleine McCann went missing.
Now a victim of Freud has revealed she ‘wouldn’t be surprised’ if he knew what happened to Madeleine McCann.
Vicky Haynes, 64, told ITV News that she felt compelled to alert the public about Freud’s predatory behaviour, after she found out he had befriended the McCann family, following her disappearance.
Haynes added, ‘I wouldn’t be at all surprised, when the police investigate Freud and his connections in Praia da Luz, if they find he knew something about the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.’
‘Why did this 82-year-old man befriend the McCanns out of the blue? The Freud I knew wouldn’t engage with you unless he really wanted to. Why did he invite them round and cook for them? Why, after their long search, did he stay in touch with them?’
‘Could it be he wanted to know the ins and outs of what was going on, and the only way he could do that was by having direct contact with the parents?’
‘I had to try to sort this out, especially for Madeleine’s sake. The McCanns didn’t know any of this about Freud. They held him in esteem — like my parents did.
‘Instead of saying Freud’s dead, the police need to say, “What are we going to do about it? We need to see who he was allied to. Let’s see if Freud was involved.”
