hewlettMADELEINE McCann Watch: Anorak’s at-a-glance look at Madeleine McCann in the news – Raymond Hewlett refuses to answer questions.

SKY NEWS: “Final attempts by Madeleine McCann investigators to speak to a convicted paedophile about her disappearance have failed.”

Convicted British paedophile Raymond Hewlett who has been named as a person of interest in the Madeleine McCann case


Hewlett has been jailed several times in the UK for sexually assaulting young girls.


Hewlett, 64, is terminally ill with cancer and is now said to be too unwell for an interview.

Retired UK policemen Dave Edgar and Arthur Cowley, who flew to Germany to speak to him, said they were “very disappointed” with the lawyer’s behaviour…

“He is not a suspect but I was keen to interview him because of his failing health. I have tried over the past weeks to arrange this via his lawyer in Germany.

“These negotiations have been difficult for reasons which I do not want to go into detail about.

“Mr Hewlett’s condition has of course been deteriorating during these negotiations.

“I travelled to Germany yesterday in a final effort to interview Raymond Hewlett. Regrettably that interview is not possible.

“From information provided by his lawyer and other sources it is obvious that his health is such that any meaningful interview would not be possible.”

Would a man on strong pain killers be a credible witness?

Private detectives planning to quiz paedophile Raymond Hewlett over Madeleine McCann’s mysterious disappearance have been scuppered by his lawyer.

And the, er, law?
