In the space of three weeks, the British investigators have been in the Algarve twice for meetings described as routine

In spite of the fact that the PJ has still not complied with any of the inquiries requested in the second letter of request sent to the Portuguese authorities, within the scope of the investigation into the Maddie case, Scotland Yard has now announced that it will send a third legal request, with more inquiries of alleged suspects.

After another visit by the English police, for a routine meeting, the day before yesterday, as reported by CM, this new request for help is seen as a sign of "pressure" on the Portuguese police.

According to findings by CM, the second letter of request has still not officially arrived with the Faro PJ police officers.

"The English police can make a request for an understanding. The Public Ministry, under Portuguese law, could refuse to authorise," a legal source told CM.

According to the English press, the commissionaire Martin Hewitt, who is coordinating the British investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann – which occurred on 3rd May 2007, in Praia da Luz – "a letter with detailed requests was sent" on Friday, a legal action that is "part of an on-going process". He added that they "are procedures to enable the investigation to continue successfully".
