Flashback: Elite Sex Trade  – Whenever we look into child sex slavery rings the dots connect back to the elites of Europe and America. They run the whole sorry affair.
Private detectives are investigating claims that Madeleine McCann may have been snatched to order for a Belgian paedophile ring.
Scotland Yard passed on a report from an informant who said a photograph of the child on holiday in Portugal was taken and passed to a “purchaser” in Belgium days before she vanished.
The information was contained in an email from the Metropolitan Police’s CO14 clubs and vice intelligence unit included in a massive dossier of evidence made public this week.

Portuguese police pursued the lead with Interpol, which gathered further reports from Belgium, the UK, Finland and Germany.
Detective Paulo Rebelo, head of the Madeleine inquiry, ruled that all but the German intelligence showed “lack of credibility” and ordered that the Scotland Yard tip-off should be filed.
The Metropolitan Police email read: “Intelligence suggests that a paedophile ring in Belgium made an order for a young girl three days before Madeleine McCann was taken.
“Somebody connected to this group saw Maddie, took a photograph of her and sent it to Belgium.
“The purchaser agreed that the girl was suitable and Maddie was taken.”
The source of the information was anonymous and it is unclear how reliable it is.
