GERMAN cops boasted of “solving 90 per cent” of the Madeleine McCann case, it has been claimed.
Paedo rapist Christian B, 43, has been named as the main suspect.
The dad of an alleged accomplice says police are close to charging him over her abduction.
The father, whose daughter was linked to Christian B during burglaries in Portugal, said: “I was with the police for an hour last month.
“They said they had 90 per cent solved the case and seemed very confident.”
He added: “They seemed to be very convinced that Christian B was their man.”
The retired ambulance driver met Christian B in 2007, the year Madeleine disappeared from Praia da Luz.
He showed him his camper van and recalled: “I get goosebumps now when he said, ‘Look I can hide drugs in here or even a small child’.
“If I’d known then what I know now I’d have killed him with my bare hands.
“It makes me shudder when I think of him playing with my six-year-old granddaughter.”
He said from his home in Schweinfurt, Germany, that his daughter had nothing to do with the Madeleine case.
Christian B is in jail for drugs offences while prosecutors build up a case.
But his lawyer Friedrich Fulscher said: “I don’t actually believe there will be any charges.”
