Suspect Christian B will remain behind bars after losing appeal to get out of jail early | #childabductors

MADELEINE McCann prime suspect Christian B will remain in jail as his appeal against a rape conviction has already failed, a German politician has claimed.

The 43-year-old convicted paedophile is appealing to the European Court of Justice but politician Ulrich Watermann says the court has already thrown out his bid.

A seven-year jail term for the rape of a 72-year-old woman in Praia da Luz, Portugal will start at the end of him serving time for drugs trafficking in January next year.

In a hearing at the ECJ last week, his lawyers had argued it was a breach of international law to put him on trial for the rape, with a final decision due in the coming weeks.

But Ulrich Watermann says the court has already made up its mind that the conviction is lawful according to the Mirror.
