Tempo of Madeleine McCann inquiry moving forwards,' say detectives

Detectives investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann have issued a new request for help to the Portuguese authorities.

The development came as a senior Scotland Yard officer said the “tempo” of the inquiry into the missing toddler was “moving forward.”

Deputy Assistant Commissioner Martin Hewitt, who is overseeing the operation, said the Yard had sent a third international letter of request to Portuguese officials linked to their inquiries.

He said: “Clearly the investigative tempo is moving forward as we are progressing the investigation and the work we are asking the Portuguese to undertake for us. We are carrying on our liaison at all levels.”

Members of the inquiry team, including Detective Chief Inspector Andy Redwood, were in Portugal again today on a “routine visit” to meet counterparts from Portugal’s Policia Judiciaria.

Madeleine was nearly four when she disappeared from her room in the Ocean Club complex in Praia da Luz where she was staying with her family in 2007.

Scotland Yard launched a fresh investigation into the girl 's disappearance last July – two years into a review of the case – and made renewed appeals on television in the UK, the Netherlands and Germany.

Detectives in the UK must submit International Letters of Request to their counterparts overseas in order to get action undertaken in a foreign country.

Recent discussions between the two forces are believed to have centred on a burglary gang who had targeted homes in the resort at the time Madeleine vanished.

Mobile phone records are said to have revealed that three suspected burglars repeatedly called each other in the hours after Madeleine disappeared.

Mr Hewitt said so far the Yard had not asked the Portugese authorities to interview or arrest any suspects.

Scotland Yard has played down speculation of imminent arrests in the case saying they are pursuing several lines of inquiry. Met officers have been to Portugal more than 20 times in the past 18 months.

In October, Portuguese authorities said a review had uncovered information prompting them to reopen their own inquiry.

No-one has been arrested.

Surely he means the tempo is speeding up?

In musical terminology, tempo ("time" in Italian; plural: tempi or tempos) is the speed or pace of a given piece. Tempo is a crucial element of most musical compositions, as it can affect the mood and difficulty of a piece.

They are rather out of tune with this expression!

A third letter - and so quickly on the heels of the previous one.

That means Clarrie will have to invent a whole new bunch of burglars, OC keyholders, white van cleaners, tractor drivers ...... his options are narrowing, but I'm sure the arrests will be 'imminent'.

Just when you thought it was safe to come out of the Pavilion.
Just when you thought you could relax a little and schmooze up a few local worthies and voters.
I dunno ...... tsk, tsk, tsk ......

A third letter - more than 20 visits to Portugual in the past 18 months - pursuing several lines of inquiry - why don't they "move forward" by heading north to Rothley - Good God, it's been almost 7 years.

Bring on the next 'un-named' mother who was in PDL in May 2007 who had to 'fight off' the 'aliens' that tried to 'abduct' her little blonde angelic female triplets to stop them being dragged aboard the space ship conveinently landed on the family friendly beach!

A source close to Kate and Gerry said:"They think this crucial 'incident' is extremely helpful to them in their faux search for the truth about how exactly Madeleine WAS 'abducted'"

What do you do if you see a space man?

Park in it, man!

So the investigating team have been in the Algarve again. Hope it wasn't within the last week or so as the weather has been terrible not the sort of weather you want on a jolly!!!

Probably because unless they have cast-iron evidence, it would lead to the ruin of one or more promising careers

I guess by tomorrow we will be hearing from "a source close to the McCanns" on the 'tempo' article just to keep it alive over the weekend.

Maybe "tempo moving forward" in the Met's dictionary means "summer is coming and we anticpate more frequent trips to the Algarve"

Tempo?

 

Is this a Freudian slip?

Are they saying that the McCann case is being orchestrated?

If so who is the conductor?

"Tempo" means "time", of course it's "going forward", what else do you expect it to do? Go back?

Euro Weekly News knows better his music or would have the other newspapers misquoted the Police?:
