THE prime suspect in Madeleine McCann's disappearance, Christian B. may not face charges after his arrest warrant is dropped.

The court lifted the arrest warrant against him, Bild reported citing Christian B's lawyer Friedrich Fülscher.
Christian B has been held since June 2020, after he was named as a main suspect in Maddie's disappearance.
In October last year, Christian B was charged by German prosecutors with three offences of aggravated rape and two offences of the sexual abuse of children, in alleged crimes spanning 17 years between 2000 and 2017.
