Steeple Talk – Matthew Steeples on TalkTV, Madeleine McCann

Matthew Steeples joins Peter Bleksley, Martin Brunt and Shabnam Chaudri to discuss the Madeleine McCann case and the latest trial of Christian Brueckner on unrelated charges on TalkTV

Premiered last night on YouTube, Matthew Steeples of The Steeple Times appeared on a 22:34-minute TalkTV programme, Crime Suspect, hosted by the crusading ex-detective Peter Bleksley.

 

Interviewed alongside another former police officer, retired Metropolitan Police detective superintendent Shabnam Chaudri, and longstanding Sky News crime correspondent Martin Brunt – who has been on that channel since it launched in 1989 – the panel discussed the trial of Christian Brueckner prior to it beginning today in Braunschweig, Germany.

 

Whilst convicted paedophile Brueckner – referenced in Germany just as ‘Christian B’ – is on trial for alleged sex crimes unrelated to his alleged involvement in the missing Madeleine McCann saga, interest in his connections to the unsolved for 17 years case was the focus of the episode.

 

During a frank discussion, Brunt referenced how he will be in attendance for proceedings whilst Chaudri examined the issue of evidence in historic cases. Steeples, questioned by Bleksley, talked of his having met Gerry and Kate McCann via his involvement in the deservedly long ago shuttered Parents and Abducted Children Together (PACT) charity and on behalf of other missing children asked: “Why don’t the cases of other missing people get nearly as much attention and nearly as much money and resources thrown at them?”

Convicted paedophile Christian Brueckner (pictured being taken into court this morning) is currently serving a 7-year sentence for raping an American pensioner in the Algarve. If he is cleared at his 40-day trial, which has begun today at the Braunschweig Regional Court, he could be freed in September next year. His present trial is for carrying out five offences in the Algarve between 2000 and 2017.

The court setting for Brueckner’s trial. He stands accused of raping an Irish tour rep who was attacked in her apartment in Praia da Rocha in 2004 and also of raping a teenage girl in his Praia da Luz home and raping an elderly lady in her holiday apartment. He also faces a charge for allegedly exposing himself to a German girl on a beach in Salema in 2007 and an allegation of indecent exposure in front of an 11-year-old girl in Sao Bartolomeu de Mssines in 2017.

Missing Madeleine – Questions STILL without Answers… £14 million wasted on Operation Grange… Why continue? Why waste more? Why not help others?

Many questions about what happened on the evening of the disappearance of Madeleine McCann remain. Some that have been highlighted by the press and discussed online include:

  • Why did Kate McCann refuse to answer 48 questions put to her by the Portuguese police?

 

  • Why were certain records of phone calls on the evening of the disappearance “whoosh-clunked” from the memories of the phones of Mr and Mrs McCann and the ‘Tapas 7’?

 

  • Why were relevant mobile phone records never handed over to the authorities in spite of them potentially being useful to the search?

 

  • Why did the couple not use the babysitting service on offer in the holiday resort on the evening of 3rd May 2007 when they went out on the razzle dazzle with friends?

 

  • Why was the door to the apartment – which opened directly onto a public highway – left unlocked with three children aged under three years old alone inside?

 

  • Why did a British sniffer dog sense the smell of a corpse in a cupboard in the apartment from which Madeleine McCann disappeared?

 

  • Why did a sniffer dog also supposedly sense the smell of a corpse in a vehicle hired by the couple a month after the disappearance of their daughter?

 

  • Why did the McCanns repeatedly try to discredit the work of the sniffer dogs and their handlers?

 

 

 

  • Why have the McCanns attempted to ‘gag’ anyone who disputes their version of events – most especially Gonçalo Amaral?

 

  • Why, given over £14 million has been spent on this search to date, has nobody come forward with any sighting of ‘missing’ Madeleine McCann given the very, very substantial rewards on offer?
