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.
This is a very sour post from you.
Inferring that DCI took the McCanns in his luggage (sic).
Guesswork without any evidence of anything.
You seem very bitter about the PJ having finally, after a two year review, realised there is no evidence of any crime by the McCanns, something we all saw as soon as the archival report was released.
And you seem very bitter about the McCanns themselves with your phrase, "special victims".
All victims of crime are special and deserve to be treated as such.
And on another matter, I have just spotted what I think is a translation error. You may be able to help.
Am I correct in thinking that 'eles perderam' is the mais-que perfeito (pluperfect) and would be translated as 'they had lost' rather than 'they lost'?
