From Mirror,UK:

McCanns will take British police to court
By Rod Chaytor 5/07/2008


"Kate and Gerry McCann are taking British police to court to try to get clues in the hunt for missing Madeleine.

The hearing in the High Court in London on Monday looked likely to be adjourned earlier this week when Portuguese police seemed to be about to open their files.

But McCanns' spokesman Clarence Mitchell yesterday confirmed it will go ahead.

Their lawyer will argue they have the right to see material held by Leicestershire Police, who have been running the British end of the enquiry for the Portuguese.


**** The police are expected to argue that their leads and evidence form the basis for a possible criminal case and should be kept confidential.****

***Kate and Gerry are on holiday and will not be in court.***

A family friend said: "We are hopeful of a decision. Leicestershire Police have been privy to vital information which could be of great help to the private investigators looking for Madeleine."

Portuguese prosecutors are deciding whether to investigate further or close the file.

Kate and Gerry McCann, both 40, from Rothley, Leics, fear that would leave them permanently branded as official suspects over Madeleine's disappearance, in Praia da Luz in May 2007"
