MADELEINE McCann suspects Christian B could dodge rape charges after his accuser said the attacker had a scar on his leg.
Hazel Behan, 39, who was kidnapped and raped in the Algarve, feared Christian B was her attacker.
She had said at the time that her ordeal had shocking similarities to the rape of a 72-year-old American woman by a German in Praia da Luz in 2005.
But Christian B could avoid rape charges as Hazel told police her abuser had a large, cross-shaped scar on his right thigh, according to the picture.
In the Irish police log of the incident, it is described as “a tattoo on his bottom”.
However, Hazel said that was a translation error and that she either saw a scar or something else like a large birthmark or mole.
The outlet reports that Christian B doesn’t have a scar or other blemishes in that region, as he appears to have agreed to an examination.
His lawyer Friedrich Fülscher, 38, said: “If it turns out that Mr. B. does not have this quality, he would have to be excluded as the perpetrator.”
The public prosecutor’s office has so far refused to comment on the allegations in the German media.
Police in Portugal reopened the investigation into Behan’s rape after contacting her to say they believed Christian B was the man who attacked her.
Hazel from Dublin was working as a tour guide in Praia da Rocha when she was violently attacked in the summer of 2004.
The incident was reported to police two weeks before her 21st birthday, in which she described him as “blonde eyebrows, piercing blue eyes” and said he spoke English with a German accent.
Brave Hazel had waived her right to anonymity, saying at the time: “I was blown away to read how he attacked a woman in 2005, both the tactics and the methods he used, the tools he had, how well he had planned it.
“I threw up to be honest because reading about it brought me right back to my experience.
“This woman was the victim of a terrible crime and she suffered a lot.
“It is up to police across Europe to do their best to bring the person who committed this crime to justice.”
The American victim was beaten with a razor-sharp sword after the devil broke into her mansion during a 15-minute horror ordeal.
He also bound, gagged and tortured her during the sex attack, and she told police, “I was afraid I was going to die.”
It comes after a TV investigation found Christian B had face-changing surgery four months after Maddie’s disappearance
During a secret visit to a private dental clinic in Germany, the paedo’s jaw was set back and four prominent “bunny” teeth were straightened.
In another twist, a new witness revealed that B knew of the Hols complex where Madeleine disappeared “inside out” after working there as a casual laborer.
And the father of his ex-lover Dieter Fehlinger, 67, claimed Maddie was hidden in Christian B’s creepy VW camper van when he was shown around on a visit to his daughter Nicole.
Prosecutors are confident Christian B will be charged this year over her disappearance and a sexual assault on another little girl.
