Sex offender to be questioned in McCann case

praiadaluzA 76-year-old British national in Gozo, Malta has been identified by local police and will be extradited to the UK to serve time in prison for the sexual assault of a girl aged under 13.

Roderick Macdonald consented to be extradited yesterday morning after his arrest, according to the Times of Malta.

Macdonald, who changd his name to Robinson after being convicted if child sex offences in the UK, also is wanted for questioning by UK police in connection with a paedophile ring that may be linked to the possible abduction of Madeleine McCann, that’s according to the UK’s Daily Mail and the Mirror.

The Mirror reported that Macdonald/Robinson was in the Algarve at the time of Madeleine’s disappearance from the resort of Praia da Luz in 2007 when she was three, although this report is not backed up be hard evidence.

Even if not in Portugal at the time, and reliable sorces refer to MacDonald's presence in New Zealand at the time of Madeleine's disappearance, officers will want to question him about his knowledge of paedophile rings operating at the time.   

Operation Grange officers want to question Macdonald as part of their wide-ranging investigation which includes piecing together 18 possibly relevant burglaries of properties in the Algarve between 2004 and 2010.

The break-ins stopped in 2010 around the time that Macdonald was arrested in Olhão and deported to Australia on charges of raping an eight-year-old girl.

While on bail in Australia he fled to New Zealand where he was arrested for further child sex offences. Macdonald had surrendered his passport but used a stolen one to fly to Portugal.

At some point in Macdonald's bizarre travel scheme he ended up in Thailand but was deported to Britain after the Thai authorities discovered details of his criminal past and decided that he was not welcome.

Then he settled in Brighton and registered on the sex offenders’ register but in 2012 was given a suspended prison sentence for abusing five-year-old and seven-year-old girls in Brighton but fled back to the Far East.

A European arrest warrant had been raised in April, 2013 at Lewes Crown Court in East Sussex which has been used to detain MacDonald in Malta and ship him back to the UK to face some detailed questioning relating to Operation Grange and Madeleine McCann's disappearance.

Great that he has been trapped. But NOT great is that the media are still saying he was in Portugal in 2007. He wasn't. He is quoted as a Case History - by name - in the CEOPS annual report in 2010, saying he was in New Zealand from 2001-9. Gamble form CeOPS KNOWS this but has not corrected any of the mainstream press. Why not ? What are they trying to hide form everyone else ? "Look over here, not over there . . ."

Hi there from backward Portugal.

It is true that in some areas Portugal seems to be trying to catch-up with the rest of Europe. For some this is actually a blessing.

It is astounding that this guy has managed to fool various police forces in different countries. It is unforgivable that in not so "backward UK" this man abuses children, gets a suspended sentence and goes on another holls in the far east. What sort of justice system allows this man after a conviction to leave the country? Is it the same justice system and political system that is involved up to its neck in paedophilia filth? Mr Cameron stop protecting your paedophile chums its time we have a witch hunt with the list of names handed over to you by Phillip Schofield. Start questioning these people and you are guaranteed to get some results in the Madeleine McCann's disappearance/death.

As for police competence, the PSP have been in my opinion closest to finding the truth but of couse they were stopped in their tracks to protect the powerful.

This Macdonald verm is another wild goose chase!!!

Macdonald seems to have made fools of the justice system, not only in England ( why one asks was a convicted paedophile, serving a suspended sentence,
allowed a passport and was able to flee the country ????), Australia, New Zealand, Malta, Portugal. At least the Thai Police were on the ball and got rid of him, well done them, at least one force out of six did their job. One would have thought that, somewhere along the way, over the last seven years, and having spent a million pounds or more of the British Taxpayers money, Some person in the English Police Force could have carried out their duty properly whilst sifting all possible angles of the case, and come up with this mans name, and the fact that he was in Portugal at the time of the girls disappearance, is on the sex offenders list,and is a wanted paedophile in three countries. `` Hello ´´ what
was this one million pounds spent on, other than several jollies to the Algarve for lots of policemen ??????

This is excellent news and a superb example of advanced countries policing. In this case the UK. Tracking this bastard across the planet.

It also shows just how backward the Portuguese Judiciaries nonsensical opinion is - that no paedophile should be 're-convicted'.

Their attempt to lift Portugal out of some kind of Megan's Law by which parents could find out if paedophiles are in the neighbourhood.

This piece of s**t is, like apparently most of them,not in any sort of control. And cannot be left alone with young children. Added to which these scum invariably get themselves or their mates into vulnerable children's homes and orphanages like Casa Pia.

It is vital that Portugal should not continue , with their cousins in Spain, to hold back the development of the EU.

Otherwise we will continue the absurdity that EU paedophiles will escape to backward EU countries like Portugal as they can avoid punishment.

As the judiciary will, in protecting their elite - coincidentally protect them as well !!!

Nada boa ...
