The alleged kidnapping suspect of Madeleine McCann, Christian Brueckner, will be charged by the end of the summer.

Investigators have told potential witnesses to be on standby to testify in a German courtroom.

The development comes a day before the 15th anniversary of Madeleine’s disappearance in Portugal in May 2007.

She disappeared from her parents’ holiday apartment in Praia da Luz while they were having dinner with friends at a tapas restaurant.

Brueckner, 45, a convicted pedophile living at the resort, was named a suspect in June 2020.

German prosecutors claim they have evidence he kidnapped and murdered the tragic three-year-old.

Brueckner was made an official suspect, or “arguido,” last month by Portuguese police, who are still investigating Madeleine’s disappearance.

Her parents Kate and Gerry, from Rothley in Leicestershire, welcomed the news and said they had “not given up hope” that she was still alive.

Brueckner is also suspected of raping an Irish tour guide in 2004 and exposing himself to youths at a playground in the Algarve.

Prosecutor Hans Christian Wolters said last October that he believes “there will be a conclusion next year”.

Now we can reveal friends who knew Brueckner when he lived in Portugal who have been told charges could be imminent.

A former friend told Der Spiegel: “I got a call from the Germans asking questions about a previous statement I made.

“They said I should be ready to come to Germany, possibly by the end of the summer. They said they hoped to accuse Christian of something, but didn’t go into further detail.”

It is not known if the charges are related to Madeleine’s disappearance or the other crimes he is suspected of in Portugal.

Mr Wolters said the evidence they have against Brueckner left them “100% convinced” that he killed her.

He told Madeleine’s parents, Kate and Gerry: “We are confident that we have the man who kidnapped and killed your daughter.”

Brueckner denies any involvement in her kidnapping and has declined to speak to police or prosecutors.

He is serving a seven-year sentence at Kiel Correctional Facility, northern Germany, for raping a 72-year-old woman in Praia da Luz in 2005.

German prosecutors have summoned Brueckner’s friends to testify against him during this trial in Braunschweig.

Including drifter Christian Post, who spent time with him in Praia da Luz.

Last month Post, who lives in Cambodia, told the Mirror he was “100% sure” Brueckner kidnapped Madeleine.

He claimed the German regularly broke into holiday homes in Praia da Luz to steal cash and passports.

Brueckner ridiculed the case against him after he was made arguido, insisting his accusers had no evidence.

He wrote in a letter: “They didn’t even have proof that I was involved in the McCann case. And they still haven’t. I know why.

“Because they don’t have Maddie’s hair or anything [which] means no one can put something like that in my stuff to find it.”

Kate and Gerry are preparing to mark the 15th anniversary of their daughter’s disappearance tomorrow.

The couple will spend the day at home with their twins, Sean and Amelie.
