Police in Portugal have put together a new team of detectives to assist Scotland Yard in the hunt for Madeleine McCann.

They have been told to help officers from the Met and have been given a long list of people British police want them to interview about Madeleine’s disappearance in 2007 while on holiday with her parents in the Algarve.

None of the detectives involved in the shambolic initial Portuguese investigation is thought  to have been chosen.

The new team is expected to start work in the next few weeks.
will question more than 30 ‘people of interest’, thought to include a taxi driver who thinks he may have picked up Madeleine, then aged three, the night after she vanished from her hotel while her parents were at a tapas bar 50 yards away.


Cabbie Antonio Castela, 73, said he picked up three men, a woman and a child resembling Madeleine about an hour’s drive from the resort and dropped them off at a hotel.


He gave a statement to Portuguese police but was never questioned afterwards.


British detectives are hoping to be allowed to participate in the interviews, although the Portuguese have made it clear that if they are given permission public prosecutors will be with them at all times.

Disappearance: Gerry McCann, father of Madeleine, in Praia da Luz, Portugal where she was last seen

The formation of the Portuguese police team will be seen as a major step forward by British authorities pushing for a renewed effort in  the investigation.


Home Secretary Theresa May sent an official request for assistance last month to Portugal’s attorney general.


The document containing the request is thought to have included the names of the 38 people across Europe identified as ‘of interest’ by a Home Office-funded Met Police review team.


The vast majority are thought to be in Portugal.



Ongoing investigation: Kate and Gerry McCann hold a news conference to mark the 5th anniversary of the disappearance

Several witnesses, believed to be British tourists, have already been interviewed again in the UK.


Detective Chief Inspector Andy Redwood, who is leading the Met’s review into the case, called Operation Grange, has said he believes Madeleine is still alive.


The initial Portuguese inquiry was shelved in 2008 and the authorities there have insisted that providing assistance to the British review does not equate to a reopening of their  own investigation.

UPDATE!!  Maddie case on the table

by Tânia Laranjo

The English have already sent the rogatory letter to the Attorney General's Office, asking the Judiciary Police to inquire some of the witnesses in the Maddie case again.

The document has not reached the Judiciary in Faro, but as soon as that happens, the diligences are to be carried out. The inquiry of new witnesses or the re-inquiry of others that were heard at the time of Madeleine McCann's disappearance do not put the archiving of the case at stake.

In Portugal, the case can only be reopened if the Judiciary thinks that some of the witness statements represent new evidence. One of the witnesses that the English authorities want to be heard again is a taxi driver who asserts that he transported the girl, that night, in the company of adults.

The man has already volunteered to make a statement, and should now make a formal statement at the Judiciary Police in Faro.

No "dining at the end of the garden" facilities for this lot.

You'd think that by now the media would at least get it right that Madeleine "disappeared" from a holiday flat and not a hotel.

It's not a trivial detail if you think about it. Had the Gruesome party been in a hotel, they would have had to come up with a different version of events. A hotel would almost certainly have CCTV and a staffed reception area; the chances therefore of a smelly paedo stranger wandering in and then out with a child would be microscopic.

Even more so than in an unlocked holiday flat!

Excellent post Karen.

I like the fact that you are also telling people that the McCanns requested the case was shelved.

After seeing the link on here, regarding comments by Nancy Grace, on her Facebook page, where she stated that the McCanns were staying in an hotel, I sent Nancy Grace a private message. I gave her the correct information, regarding the McCanns accommodation in Praia da Luz and I asked her to read the PJ files, where she could read the facts of the case.

I took a look at some of the comments on her Facebook page and when I saw any that portrayed the McCanns as victims, whilst showing no sympathy for the plight of little Madeleine, I asked the poster to read the PJ files. Unfortunately, it took about 4 of my long winded posts, to explain why she should read the PJ files.

One McCann fan, seemed to suffer from a serious eye defect, because she accused me of stating the McCanns killed Madeleine, which wasn't true. After ranting on about things that I had never mentioned, she went on to say the McCanns were only dining 2 minutes away from their apartment. This poster also got 3 or 4 of my long winded posts.

I have no problem with anyone who wants to offer the McCanns their support. What I do have a problem with, is the McCann supporters, who hurl insults at the McCann critics and twist their posts. These posters, never engage in a proper debate.

That hotel and apartment 'mistake' is one of my major bug-bears NBY.
It makes a whole lot of difference to the scenario imo.
