“Kate and Gerry McCann could still face charges of neglect, according to the first
published court ruling on the disappearance of their daughter Madeleine.
Official documents in Portugal show that the police there have not yet ruled out
bringing such charges. This hardly feels like a positive step in either finding
Madeleine, or discovering what happened to her.
In the course of their 13-month investigation, the Portuguese police have failed to come up with any answers at all about the disappearance.
It’s unforgivable that they have not removed the weight of suspicion from Kate and Gerry, who have paid an unimagineably high price for eating dinner 50 yards from where their children slept. One more question for the bungling plods of Portugal. Haven’t these people suffered enough?”.
Report in today’s Daily Mirror. As I understand it, the PJ are seeking to discover what happened to Madeleine. This is to me a positive step. It must be borne in mind that the McCanns have done everything in their power to resist the police investigation. The McCanns are suspects for good reason. Besides, it does not help to keep shortening the distance between the Tapas Bar and Apartment 5A.
It is Madeleine who is the victim here. The McCanns are not victims.
