One of the victims of exposed child abuser former British MP Clement Freud has revealed that Madeleine McCann’s family was closely related to the pedophile.

Freud’s victim Vicky Hayes said that the authorities were aware of the link of the MP with the McCann family about two years ago but they ignored it. Hayes was raped for years as a teenager. She said that she felt “uneasy” when she knew that the child abuser cooked for the McCann family at his holiday home in Portugal’s Praia da Luz. The doubt arose as she was aware that Freud was among those who remain out of the media spotlight unless he was performing for the public.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the McCann family were shocked to know that the MP was a pedophile and had sexually assaulted many girls as young as 10. The place where the toddler went missing in Portugal was near the villa owned by the deceased MP. The latest revelation made by the allege Freud victim is being assessed by police. Once the truth is figured out, the information will be used for Operation Grange, an investigation into the 2007 missing case of Madeleine.

The Telegraph UK reported that Kate McCann, in her book, “Madeleine” has described how the MP called the family two months after the toddler went missing. She has mentioned how the abuser asked them to join him for dinner at his villa, which was about 600 yards from their Ocean Club apartment.

“I read Kate McCann’s book and was immediately upset and anxious that Clement Freud had invited the McCanns to his home,” Hayes told ITV News. “He was a private man, not the type to suddenly befriend  a couple who had intense media attention. It really jarred with me, left me feeling very uneasy. He had a home in Praia da Luz, but why to invite them and cook for them?”

“Nobody else would have thought Freud capable of abuse and rape but he did it to me.  “He was capable of anything.”
