DAILY EXPRESS: FRIDAY 18 MAY 2007
Friday May 18,2007
By David Piditch and Matt Drake in Praia da Luz
A RUSSIAN computer expert questioned by police searching for
Madeleine McCann is reported to have boasted to former colleagues
how he had sex with an under-age girl.
Two women who worked with internet geek Sergey M******, 22, alleged
he was a 'sexual predator' who preyed on young girls.
The claims came as it was reported M****** had phoned prime-suspect
Robert Murat just 30 minutes after Madeleine, four, was snatched
from her familys holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in Portugal.
It is understood there were several phone calls between M****** and
Murat, 33, that night. But there is no suggestion that the calls had
anything to do with her disappearance.
Yesterday M****** insisted he was not involved in Madeleines kidnap
and denied claims he was a paedophile.
He is very clever with computers and knows everything there is to
know about them
But a former women colleague at an Algarve internet firm claimed
M****** boasted he had sexual intercourse with a 14-year-old girl.
When she told him he could be arrested she said he simply laughed it
off. He also claimed he had seduced the 16-year-old daughter of a
Portuguese girlfriend. Another ex-woman work colleague at a
different firm told how she found downloaded pornography on his
computer. She said: 'It was top- shelf stuff, boys' stuff, blue
movies. I didn't mention it to him.
'He is very clever with computers and knows everything there is to
know about them.
'But he is also very cocky and not entirely reliable. He wants to
earn big money but doesn't want to put the work in.'
The search for Madeleine was given fresh hope last night after
details emerged of a possible sighting in Lisbon 180 miles north of
where she was snatched 15 days ago.
Police revealed last night that they were hunting a red van with
fake number plates in a southern suburb after a witness reported
seeing a child fitting Maddys description. She was taken from her
familys holiday apartment at 9.30pm while her parents, Kate and
Gerry, were dining 40 yards away.
Police reportedly put oddball Murat under surveillance after he
began to interfere with the police search operation.
It was reported that police have also kept watch on Moscow-born
M****** for at least the last five days.
Yesterday M****** denied claims he had images of sexual violence on
his computer. He said police had returned a laptop and two desktop
computers seized from the flat he shares with his parents ' half a
mile from the McCanns apartment.
The Russian was released early yesterday after a six-hour quiz.
M******, who set up a business website for Murats property company,
denied he had a criminal record.
He said: 'The Portuguese press said they found some paedophile
content on my computer. That is a lie. Nothing has been found. My
equipment has been released and returned to me. I'm trying to help
in any way possible.'
Yesterday Murats mother Jennifer was being quizzed over his claim
he spent the evening with her the night of the abduction.
Mrs Murat was a key figure in the initial search for Madeleine and
played a major part in printing and distributing posters of the
