Portuguese CID spokesman: "The McCann are not suspects"

"Policia Judiciaria hasn't changed its position and does not consider Madeleine's parents as suspects", Chief-Inspector Olegario de Sousa said today, after being questioned by Gazeta Digital. The Portuguese weekly "Sol" wrote, last week, that "Madeleine parents and their holiday friends were suspects in this crime investigation" and the group has made a "pact of silence". Almost two months ago, Olegario de Sousa made a statement about this subject, at a Press Conference, and said that Gerry and Kate were not suspects in the abduction of Madeleine.

Hi Paulo,

Again thanks for clearing this point up. You did say you would ask de sousa and you did!!! Am relieved with the response as so many want to put fingers, you know what I mean!

Respect,

Marion,

Thank you. I always try to do what I promise, but it took some more time than usual, because I'm on holidays, and my wife only allows me one hour a day at the computer..

Regards,

Paulo Reis

paulo,i do not understand your question to the police - we know that there is only one suspect and that is robert murat.

PD,

The story published by Portuguese weekly "Sol", last week (they wrote that "Madeleine parents and their holiday friends were suspects in this crime investigation" and the group has made a "pact of silence")was translated to English and quoted in the British Press (I think it was Daily Express...) Several readers asked me about it and I also thought it was strange, once Police had denied it, clearly, before.
So, I contacted Chief-Inspector Olegário de Sousa and asked for a formal clarification of Madeleine's parents and friends "situation" in this crime investigation.

Regrads,

Paulo Reis

PS - I haven't forget your questions! Give me just one or two days more, as I wrote before, I'm on holidays with my family, and my wife only allows me one hour a day of computer access. Today, as I felt on my knees and implored for more, she decided to be generous and gave me a couple of hours...
