Witness in Madeleine McCann probe to sue discredited Portuguese cop for defamation
A WITNESS in the Madeleine McCann probe is to sue discredited Portuguese cop Goncalo Amaral for defamation.
HGV driver Helge Busching, 49, identified prime suspect Christian B, 44, to cops.
His evidence helped nail the convicted paedophile of a rape in Portugal in 2005 close to where Madeleine vanished in 2007, aged three.
Amaral — thrown off the case after wrongly identifying parents Kate and Gerry as suspects — branded German Busching and a pal “unreliable witnesses” in a book.
Busching told The Sun: “I’m not happy with what has been said about me by this policeman.”
His lawyer, George Tzeriz, said the criticism was “unjustified and unwarranted”.
He said: “He is a key witness in this investigation and is seen so by the police.”
