Rapaz não sabes que eles la mostram menos as emoções,por razões culturais?Se fossem Portugueses ficaria surpreendido sim mas neste caso não. A PJ não fez o q devia nas horas a seguir ao crime,ou seja,cortar as estrada,alem do facto de so uma hora depois ter aparecido
By Martin Fricker, Tom PettiforMadeleine McCann: Portuguese police investigation into girl's disappearance IS to reopen24 Oct 2013 13:16It is believed that Portuguese police are now convinced the McCanns were not involved in their daughter’s disappearancePolice in Portugal today confirmed the search for missing Madeleine McCann IS to reopen.Officers investigating how the three-year-old vanished in May 2007 during a family holiday in Praia da Luz closed the file in 2008.But a team of officers in Porto have been reviewing the case and asked for permission from the country's Attorney General to reopen it.Today a spokesman confirmed: "The Public Ministry has determined the reopening of the inquiry relating to the disappearance of Madeleine McCann following a request from the Policiia Judiciaria."The dramatic move - first revealed by the Mirror - comes after British cold case detectives uncovered new leads and is seen as a huge boost for Madeleine’s parents, Kate and Gerry.The new investigations are expected to be carried out by the Policia Judiciaria police force based in the Algarve town of Portimao.The Portuguese investigation will run in parallel with the Metropolitan Police's Operation Grange investigation.AC Mark Rowley and DCI Andy Redwood attended a meeting with senior officers last week in Lisbon to discuss the new lines of inquiry,The group were later joined by Kate and Gerry McCann who were briefed on the plans to apply to reopen the investigation.AC Mark Rowley, Specialist Crime and Operations, said: "The meeting was very positive, and we and the Policia Judiciara have a shared determination to do everything possible to discover what happened to Madeleine."Colleagues in Portugal fully shared with us the developments in their review, and the fact that they were taking the significant step of applying for the investigation to be formally reopened."From the near future, MPS detectives from Operation Grange will travel regularly to Portugal under the terms of the ILOR in relation to the UK investigation."This is a welcome development, but both sides of the investigation are at relatively early stages, with much work remaining to be done."This new momentum is encouraging, but we still have a way to go, and as with all major investigations, not all lines of enquiry that look promising will yield results."Last week was a significant point in the investigation into Madeleine's disappearance, and I would like to thank the public across Europe for the overwhelming response to the appeals that we made here at home on Crimewatch, as well as in Germany and Holland."Today's development is good news. Combined with the formal re-opening of the Portuguese investigation today, and our ever closer working relationship, I believe that we have the best opportunity yet to finally understand what happened to Madeleine."It is believed that Portuguese police are now convinced the McCanns were not involved in their daughter’s disappearance and are ready to probe the abduction theory.A spokesman for the McCanns said last night the change of heart may be partly due to massive publicity surrounding the case, including an appeal on BBC’s Crimewatch and the recent discovery of a mystery blonde girl, Maria, who was found living with a gypsy family in Greece.Scotland Yard says it has received more than 2,400 calls and emails since a number of TV programmes on Madeleine’s disappearance were broadcast across Europe.The McCanns’ spokesman added: “Kate and Gerry don’t want to get their hopes up too much. But if the Portuguese do resume their investigation it would be a significant development and an important step forward.”Home Secretary Theresa May, along with senior police and prosecutors, has been lobbying the Portuguese authorities to reopen their probe.Earlier this month, police spoke of a possible breakthrough after it emerged officers were analysing data from the phone records of people who were in Praia da Luz when Madeleine vanished.The Scotland Yard team, who began their review of the case in May 2011, have also revealed that new evidence adds further weight to claims that Madeleine’s abduction may have been pre-planned.They say they have identified 41 “persons of interest”, including 12 Britons who were in Portugal at the time. They have also released two e-fit images of a man seen near the scene on the night Maddie was snatched.Goncalo Amaral, head of the regional Policia Judiciaria during the initial investigation, was removed from the case and his post in October 2007 after criticising British police in a Portuguese newspaper interview.He went on to publish a book in July 2008, making claims that were so controversial the McCanns sued him for libel – a lawsuit which is still ongoing.Amaral was convicted of perjury in 2009 for falsifying documents in a separate case involving the disappearance of an eight-year-old Portuguese girl.
By David CollinsMadeleine McCann prime suspect pictured: Heroin addict who worked at hotel club4 Nov 2013 06:03Police are investigating the possibility that he kidnapped Maddie after being disturbed as he broke into her family’s apartmentkey suspect in the abduction of Madeleine McCann was fired from the holiday complex where she vanished after police warned staff: “You can’t trust this man.”Junkie and ex-jailbird Euclides Monteiro was sacked by the Ocean Club in Praia da Luz, Portugal, the year before the blonde three-year-old disappeared on May 3, 2007.Yesterday, as the first picture of the 6ft 2in ex-waiter emerged, detectives were investigating the possibility that he kidnapped Madeleine after being disturbed as he broke into her family’s apartment.Menteiro, known as Toni, died aged 40 in a tractor accident four years ago.But phone records have placed him near the flats at the time she vanished. It is believed he may have been raiding guests’ rooms to feed his heroin habit.His picture looks nothing like two e-fit images issued by Scotland Yard – but police stress they are still exploring every line of inquiry. Nelson Rodrigues, 32, a barman and waiter at the Ocean Club for two years, worked alongside Monteiro in 2006. He said yesterday: “On the surface he was a nice guy but there was something not right with him. “He would turn up to work with bleary eyes, sometimes he didn’t seem like he was all there.“And things were going missing about that time – laptops, jewellery, mobile phones, anything that was lying around.”Mr Rodrigues said police were called after Monteiro was accused of stealing tips. He was searched, but nothing was found and he protested his innocence.Later an officer for Portugal’s national guard took the staff to one side and warned them about Monteiro.Mr Rodrigues recalled: “The officer told us, ‘We know him, you can’t trust that man’. They said he’d been in trouble in the past for drug offences. “That’s the last time he worked at the Ocean Club. I never saw him again.”Monteiro’s close friend Sergio Paulo, 44, a builder from Lagos, said: “Toni was a good guy but he became a slave to heroin. I know he would sometimes break into apartments and rob them.”Monteiro, originally from Cape Verde islands off West Africa, was convicted of theft in 1996 but escaped deportation after a presidential pardon. He was living in Lagos, a 15-minute drive from Praia da Luz, when Madeleine disappeared.British expat, George Burke, from Liverpool, reported a possible sighting in Lagos.He said he saw a girl “remarkably like Madeleine” being dragged along a road to Lagos marina at 6am the day after she went missing. But Monteiro’s relatives claim police are just looking for a “scapegoat”.His sister Paula said: “It’s ridiculous – the e-fit they released is a white man and my brother was black. He loved kids. He had a son and daughter and would never have harmed a young girl.”Last week it was revealed Madeleine’s parents, Kate and Gerry, are to apply under Portuguese law to become private “prosecutors”.It may help them influence the course of the investigation and any future prosecution.
