Re: Highly Unlikely That the McCanns Will Be Brought to Justice

Scotland Yard is to take control of the Madeleine McCann case from the Portuguese authorities, the Daily Mail can reveal.

In a significant development, Home Secretary Theresa May has agreed to fund a full-scale Metropolitan Police investigation into Madeleine’s disappearance in Portugal six years ago.

It follows a two-year, £5million Met review of her disappearance.

This has identified more than 20 potential suspects and dozens of new leads – but despite the progress made by the review team, the Portuguese authorities have refused to reopen their inquiry. Officials in Portugal say that under the country’s laws they can only reopen the case if there is new evidence, and the new leads do not provide sufficient grounds.

But Met detectives insist their leads could, if properly investigated, result in new evidence and perhaps the case being solved.

With no sign of the deadlock being broken, the Met asked Mrs May to provide Home Office funding for a Scotland Yard investigation into Maddie’s disappearance.

It is understood she has approved the request. It is not known how much additional funding was sought but it is believed it could run into millions of pounds. A statement announcing the Met-led investigation is expected in the next few weeks.

It will endeavour not to upset the Portuguese authorities, who – privately at least – are likely to be unhappy about playing second fiddle to British police.

Under the plan, Yard detectives will seek the assistance of the Portuguese to carry out some inquiries on their behalf. British police do not have jurisdiction in Portugal but they have the right to investigate and prosecute any British suspects who might be linked to Madeleine’s disappearance.

Hence the spin of burglars & the like

That's not much different to what is going on now Matthew is it. SY are miffed because the PJ would not send the letters or let them know what OPORTO has found. Portugal, has also spent millions on this investigation if you count the sum of their initial investigation. Like many Countries they are struggling financially and have said enough is enough .

I'm surprised that Theresa May is prepared to let SY spend more money when they have found so little worthwhile to follow up. How much more will they be allowed to spend.

Isn't it good news that there could be a UK trial...IF the suspects (names known to the police) are British?

In the long run IF the suspects turn out to be British & IF those British suspects had the services of famous extradition lawyers the cost would be justified & at the moment we know virtually nothing what SY have found barring the suppressed e-fit & a man walking the wrong way from creche  

The PJ have also reopened the case so the cost must be justified there?

We are pretty sure the suspects are British.... but they aren't likely to ever be charged..

If NYS have no jurisdiction in Portugal, how can they "take control" of a Portuguese case? What a load of bollocks.

By working together

#madeleine UK and Portuguese governments trying to set up joint police investigation into Madeleine's disappearance, says Scot Yard.

27 November 2013: The Metropolitan Police announce their desire to set up a "joint investigation team" with the Portuguese authorities. Met Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe says the force is seeking agreement for the team from the UK and Portuguese and UK governments, and that it would be more effective than the current "ad-hoc" approach to working together.

https://www.europol.europa.eu/content/general-legal-basis-jits

legal basis for JITs

The concept of the Joint Investigation Teams originated from the 2000 EU Convention on Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters (2000 MLA Convention) with the aim of improving cooperation between judicial, police and customs authorities by updating existing mutual legal assistance provisions. The conditions under which JITs are to be set up are laid down in Article 13. However the Council of the European Union recognised the slow ratification and implementation of the 2000 MLA Convention. The provisions of Article 13 of the 2000 MLA Convention were therefore incorporated into the Framework Decision of 13 June (FD) 2002, which equally provides a basis to set up JITs. Member States were to comply with the provisions of this Framework Decision by 1 January 2003.
Article 13 of the 2000 MLA Convention

The 2000 MLA Convention provides for specific forms of mutual agreements, inter alia the setting up of JITs. Subject to mutual agreements between two or more Member States, the competent authorities of the respective States may set up a JIT for a specific purpose and for a limited period. This period may, however, be extended by mutual consent. Any Member State investigating offences with a cross border dimension may request the setting up of a JIT. The composition of the team will consist of law enforcement officers, prosecutors and judges and other relevant personnel. The team will be led by a person from the State in which the JIT operates. Although the members of the team may originate from various jurisdictions they are to carry out their duties in accordance with the national law of the territory where the investigation is taking place. Investigations may be carried out in the Member State of operation by seconded members provided the approval is granted by the Member State of operation and seconded Member State.

Paragraphs 6 and 7 reflect the novelties of this concept and it presents the advantages of increased cooperation and coordination. The provisions allow for investigations to be carried out in the Member State of operation by seconded members and introduce the possibility for seconded members stationed abroad with the team to request investigative measures from their competent national authorities without the need for any further requests under the traditional mutual legal assistance regime. Such requests shall be regarded as if they were put forward on national territory within a national investigation. Additionally, paragraph 9 permits a member of a JIT to make available to the team relevant information accessible in their State, provided it is in accordance with national law and that it falls within the limits of the seconded member’s competence. Where investigative measures are being carried out the seconded team member is entitled to be present provided that the competent authorities do not decide otherwise. The team leader may also assign the seconded member to perform investigative measure as long as approval is granted by the Member State of operation and the seconding Member State.

When necessary the State of operation may, in accordance with relevant procedures, makes a request to a third State, not party to the JIT, to assist in the investigation.
