German drifter known as Christian B is being investigated over a separate allegation of child sex abuse.
Madeleine McCann suspect questioned: It is thought that he exposed himself and performed a sex act in front of a young girl on a beach in 2007.
Hans-Christian Wolters, prosecuting, told Sky News “that in the case from 2007 he is thought to have exposed himself to a 10-year-old German girl on a beach”. Although Mr Wolters said it is unknown if he actually played with himself in front of her.
Furthermore, he went on to say that in Germany this is classed as a sexual offense. Consequently, this is why the suspect is being questioned. However, it is ongoing so the end result is not yet known.

The alleged assault took place on Salema Beach just a 15 minute drive from Praia de Luz. Specifically, this was where Madeleine disappeared the same year. Christian B is currently in jail in Germany after being convicted of drug trafficking and rape.
He was known as a drifter who was around the Algarve area of Portugal between 1995 and 2007. His lawyer has stated that he strongly denies any involvement with Madeleine’s disappearance.
