Leicester head of CID spent an hour with the McCann family







September 12 2007
Relatives of missing four-year-old Madeleine McCann last night said that charges against her parents by Portuguese police - which could come within 10 days - would let them clear their name. Madeleine's aunt Philomena McCann, from Ullapool, said that the decision by the Algarve public prosecutor to hand the case file over to a judge changed nothing as far as her family was concerned. "That was expected. It doesn't change a thing," she said. "We will have to wait and see if they are bringing charges or not."advertisement Ms McCann, who is Gerry McCann's sister, added: "If they bring charges against Kate and Gerry, that will give them a chance to clear their name. It will give us a chance to end all this speculation."
