“Maddie” case: Suspect remains silent in court

Christian B. is accused of three counts of rape and two counts of sexual abuse of children, as the representative of the public prosecutor’s office said before the regional court in Braunschweig, Lower Saxony, Germany.

B’s lawyer explained that the defendant was exercising his right to remain silent. The trial began a week ago. At that time, the trial was interrupted before the charges were read out due to the defense’s request for bias against a female lay judge. The court has now granted the application and the lay judge has been replaced.

No connection to Maddie case

The 47-year-old B. has to answer in the Braunschweig proceedings for sexual offenses that he is said to have committed against five women and girls in Portugal between 2000 and 2017. These allegations are not related to the Maddie case.

The defendant is currently in prison for rape in another case. The Braunschweig public prosecutor also considers B. a murder suspect in the case of Maddie, who disappeared from a holiday apartment in Portugal. She has therefore not yet pressed charges.
