Madeleine McCann: Kate and Gerry could be cleared on Monday

Kate and Gerry McCann could find out on Monday if they are to be formally cleared of involvement in their daughter Madeleine’s disappearance.

Portugal’s attorney-general has said he will announce a “solution” to the investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

Fernando Pinto Monteiro’s comments also fuelled speculation that the case could finally be drawing to a close.

Mr Pinto Monteiro said in Lisbon yesterday: “The ‘Maddie Case’ will have a solution on Monday and you will hear of it.”

Reports in Portugal suggested he would announce whether the case would be closed, charges would be brought or the police would be asked to undertake further inquiries.

The McCanns’ spokesman, Clarence Mitchell, said the family, whose daughter went missing from their holiday apartment on May 3 last year, had not been contacted by the Portuguese authorities.

“We’ve heard nothing official and our lawyers have heard nothing official,” he said.

“It may well be true, but we can’t comment because we haven’t heard. We’re not going to prejudice anything.”

‘Caso Madie’

I think it will be ashame if the McCanns are cleared of all blame for the disappearance of Madeleine. It will mean that the campaign for justice for Madeleine has failed. I am aware that Max Clifford has stated that the aguido status should be lifted from both the McCanns and Robert Murat, because, in his view, the PJ have no evidence. Whilst I agree with him in relation to Robert Murat, I totally disagree in relation to the McCanns. There is sufficient evidence for, at least, child neglect charges. And, given that there is no evidence to support the abduction theory, it remains that the McCanns must provide a satisfactory explanation for the disappearance of Madeleine.
