Hewlett: I have never even met Maddie

15 June 2009

A convicted British paedophile has insisted he has never seen Madeleine McCann in person and had nothing to do with her disappearance. Raymond Hewlett, who admits being in Portugal when Maddie went missing in May 2007, said he had only ever seen her in publicity photographs. 'I'd take a lie detector test, I'll take any test you like,' he said. 'The only time I've seen her is on missing posters. And I saw her on TV in a bar once - but I've never seen her in real life.'

His comments came as it emerged private detectives hired by Kate and Gerry McCann to find their daughter have been refused permission to interview Hewlett, who is dying of cancer. Retired policeman Dave Edgar said he was 'very disappointed' the 64 year-old's lawyer would not agree to talks. Hewlett, who is being treated in Aachen, Germany, has been jailed several times for sexually assaulting young girls.

He is thought to have turned down the interview because Mr Edgar wanted a five-hour session but he would talk for only an hour.
