Can we stay on topic thanks..tomorrows news
and goodnight..


Rogerio Alves, the Portuguese attorney representing Kate and Gerry McCann, said that was the “sole aim” of the officers after reopening the investigation.

He said the detectives have finally admitted to the McCanns, both 45, that they no longer regard them as suspects.

The original investigation, which pointed the finger at the couple, both doctors, was shelved five years ago.

At a meeting with the McCanns in Portugal’s capital Lisbon, police chiefs told them they were confident the “truth will be discovered’ about their daughter’s fate”.

Details of the new line of inquiry were being kept secret by the police because the probe is at such a critical stage any leak could hamper it.


The reopening of the investigation, which was announced by Portugal’s Attorney General on Thursday, follows a two-and-a-half-year internal review of the evidence. The probe will run parallel to the ongoing Met Police inquiry.

Mr Alves said Kate and Gerry were told the “reasons why it was being reopened” at the meeting with Portuguese and British police last week.

He said: “They also know that this new line of inquiry excludes any responsibility of the parents.

“What it means is that the police understand there are new avenues that should be explored.

“This brings Madeleine’s parents a legitimate expectation, not only that the truth will be discovered, but also that it will be possible to find Madeleine alive – which is the sole aim of all the efforts they’ve been making.”

British police also believe the youngster, who disappeared from her parents’ holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal, in 2007, could still be alive. They have spent two years reviewing the original case files and documents from eight teams of private detectives hired by the McCanns and said they have found no evidence she is dead.


Mr Alves, who was hired by the McCanns after they were declared suspects by the original police team, now wants them made “assistentes”, private prosecutors, in the case.

It will mean their lawyers can work with state prosecutors, and even press their own charges against suspects.

Mr Alves added the secrecy order prevented him revealing the new line of inquiry.

He said: “The police asked us specifically not to compromise the investigation and we are all obliged to respect the secrecy order

Did the McCanns take their hired criminal lawyer  (  Alves )   into that meeting they had with Scotland Yard and Portuguese police  ...  or is  he quoting what they  (  the McCanns  ) told him had transpired  ...  do we konw  ?

I'm guessing they had a criminal lawyer present when they were  'briefed'   by police

Madeleine McCann: Kate and Gerry McCann told they are no longer suspects by Portuguese police 26 Oct 2013 00:00

The couple were told in a police briefing last week in Lisbon where they were also updated on new leads

Kate and Gerry McCann have been told for the first time by the Portuguese authorities that they are no longer suspects in their daughter Madeleine’s disappearance.

The couple were told in a police briefing last week in Lisbon where they were also updated on the new leads that have been unearthed.

Their Portuguese lawyer Rogerio Alves said yesterday: “The McCanns were already informed about the reopening of the inquiry and the reasons why it was being reopened.

“They also know that this new line of inquiry excludes any responsibility of the parents.

“The Portuguese police told them this at a meeting in Lisbon last week at which British police were also present.

"What it means is that the police understand there are new avenues that should be explored.

“This brings Madeleine’s parents a legitimate expectation not only that the truth will be discovered but also that it will be possible to find Madeleine alive which is the sole aim of all the efforts they’ve been making.”


 

Portugal’s current Attorney General, Joana Marques Vidal, is the first woman ever appointed to the post.

She took over as the country’s top legal advisor in October 2012 from predecessor Fernando Pinto Monteiro after his six-year mandate came to an end.

It was still unclear last night which police force would be appointed to lead the reopened inquiry. Initial reports suggested it would be a team of Algarve-based Policia Judiciaria detectives but yesterday it appeared more likely the review team from Porto would be asked to do the job.

The detectives will work under the direction of public prosecutors based in the Algarve resort of Portimao.

Jose Magalhaes e Menezes, the public prosecutor in charge of the original investigation, is expected to oversee the reopened inquiry.

He was damning of the original probe pointing the finger at Madeleine’s parents and claimed officers under disgraced Goncalo Amaral achieved “very little” during their 15 month investigation.

He also thwarted attempts by Mr Amaral to charge the McCanns with child abandonment, leading to a souring in relations between police and prosecutors.


Mr Amaral went on to write a controversial book called ‘The Truth of the Lie’ which the McCanns are currently suing him over at an ongoing civil trial in a Lisbon court.


 
 

It also emerged last night Madeleine’s parents are set to apply to become private prosecutors - “assistentes” under Portuguese law - in the reopened criminal inquiry.

It will mean their legal team can work alongside state prosecutors so they are kept informed of all new developments and conduct their own private prosecution - running parallel to the state prosecution - against any future suspects charged over Madeleine’s disappearance.

It marks a remarkable turn-around in a case in which they were once 'arguidos' - suspects.

Their status as ‘assistentes’ would be crucial because of the secrecy order slapped on the case by Portugal’s Attorney General.

They wouldn’t have access to all case files at present because of the secrecy order as ‘assistentes’ - but would once the secrecy order is lifted.

Mr Alves said yesterday: “I will be applying for the McCanns to become assistentes in this case but don’t know yet when.

“Madeleine is the victim as well as her parents who are also her legal representatives."

If the investigation is at such a critical stage,  and secrecy is imperative  ...  why is the McCanns criminal  lawyer talking to the press  ?

I've searched but found nothing about the mundane Dr Alves being present or not at the PJ headquarters. I do guess he was, he even might have organized the final talk, a sort of preamble to the request of assistant statute ("private prosecutor" !, those tabloids exceed themselves !).
DCI Redwood likely took the McCanns in his luggages so to speak.
RA was very useful as a spin doctor to convince that the PJ, miraculously, after 6 years and a half of blindness and deafness have finally understood the vanity of investigating such special victims.

Hope for Gerry and Kate McCann as Portugese police are confident they will find Madeleine

PORTUGUESE police are confident they will find Madeleine McCann alive, her parents’ lawyer revealed yesterday.
