I am saying that you have started a thread for which you are incapable of providing a cite.  Which by my reckoning makes it your opinion and nothing at all to do with the facts this forum expects and demands.

I’m not sure why you think I haven’t provided a cite. It is obvious that at least from the beginning of August the McCanns were being investigated so when the statement quoted was made OS knew that.

its also obvious the investigation had problems distinguishing their A from their E

Im not discussing the competence of the investigation but whether at one point the McCanns were being investigated but the official spokesperson denied they were suspects.

That is a major victory then IMO.


Or not as the case maybe.
"This week the couple, from Rothley, Leics, withdrew their defamation action after being advised that the newspaper had a strong defence under Portuguese law.

It could argue the story was published in good faith because senior police officers did at the time believe the McCanns may have been implicated in the case."

They could have pursued the author.
What they did according to the article was:
 "A source close to the couple confirmed that the defamation action against the newspaper and two journalists had been dropped.

The source said the McCanns want to concentrate instead on their £1 million case against Goncalo Amaral, the former head of the Madeleine investigation".


Well that didn't pan out too well did it?

If the McCanns are truly the only suspects in this case, why hasn’t the case been shelved again due to lack of evidence?

That article is 2 years later.  The paper has still gone bust and they are looking to sue Amaral at that stage.

One part of the PJ informing the paper that the McCanns were under suspicion ( the reason for the strong defence) and the Inspector Olegario de Sousa making a claim the McCanns were not suspects.  Two answers to the one issue.  One must be an error.

Are you seriously trying to claim they were not suspects in August 2007 and Sousa didn't know about it?

Why do you think they took their hire car away in August and returned it missing a part?

Why did they take their clothes away to examine?

Why do you think they were told, 'Next time we meet it will be across the table'?

Her posts puzzled me too.
