I saw Maddie twice claims dying child molester

Paedophile Raymond Hewlett has allegedly said he saw Madeleine McCann twice before she vanished. The Briton, 62, has previously insisted he was miles from Praia da Luz in the Portuguese Algarve when the three-year-old went missing in May 2007. But yesterday he reportedly implied he had been close enough to see Maddie's distinctive flaw in her right eye.

Kate and Gerry McCann's spokesman yesterday said it was now 'imperative' cancer-stricken Hewlett is interviewed before he dies. But he has told private detectives employed by the couple he will only reveal where he was the night Maddie vanished if they pay him thousands of pounds. The request has been refused.

The former soldier has been discharged after throat cancer surgery in the German city of Aachen a month ago. His lawyer there confirmed he has 'a matter of weeks to live'.

Yesterday Bild newspaper, Germany's biggest, reported that Hewlett admitted seeing Madeleine twice and described the mark in her right eye. The report is understood to be based on 'police sources' in Germany. But a McCann family friend added: 'It is impossible to know whether to believe anything Hewlett says.'
