More details have been released on New Zealand charges faced by a paedophile being extradited to Britain in connection with the Madeleine McCann case.
Roderick McDonald was arrested last week in Malta over the rape of a child under 13.
The British police said then that McDonald, also known as Roderick Robinson, was arrested in New Zealand in 2009 for child sex offences but fled the country.
New Zealand court documents released to media today show he was charged with three counts of sexual conduct with a child under 12 in Hamilton.
The documents show he was living in Mangere Bridge in Auckland but the alleged offences occurred in Hamilton.
He was granted bail on the basis that he surrender his passport but then used a stolen passport to fly to Portugal.
McDonald, now 76, has a string of child sex offences to his name, with convictions in Britain, Australia and Thailand.
