Drug dealer called Julia being hunted to help solve Madeleine McCann case
A DRUG DEALER is being hunted by German cops in connection with Madeleine McCann’s disappearance.
She was the dope supplier to prime Madeleine suspect Christian B, 43, from 2007-2008 when he set up a lucrative drugs operation after he fled Portugal.
The Sun exclusively revealed new details of the case last week which involved Christian B buying drugs from a woman called Julia in the Berlin suburb of Oranienburg.
A European Arrest Warrant exclusively obtained by us detailed how he bought two kilos of marijuana from Julia and sold them on with another man called Alexander Zaspel.
Christian B used cash from burglaries committed across the Algarve to fund the deal after he skipped back to his Germany just days after Madeleine disappeared in 2007.
Prosecutor Stephanie Gropp told The Sun: "Julia was never traced because the suspect refused to reveal any details and it was also possibly an alias.
'SHE WAS NEVER TRACED'
“It’s possible that he told her something of what he was doing in Portugal.
"He had close contact with her shortly after he returned from Portugal for many months.
“At the time of the investigation an attempt was made to find her but she was never traced and the defendant refused to talk about her.”
His trial heard he bought 32,000 Euros (£29,000) worth of marijuana from Julia over a period of several months from late 2007 until the spring of 2008.
Christian B was eventually convicted in 2011 by a court in Niebüll, northern Germany and given 21 months while Zaspel was sentenced to six months.
A police source in Flensburg, the area that investigated the case, said: "Julia was a key part of the investigation but never traced and it’s possible she is unwilling to come forward because she fears prosecution over drugs dealing.
“It would be good to speak with her as she may have vital details of Christian B’s time in Portugal after Madeleine was taken.”
