"law bosses thought it was "natural" for English parents to leave their children alone".    


FULL STORY below
The parents of missing Madeleine McCann were not made suspects for abandoning their daughter because law bosses thought it was "natural" for English parents to leave their children alone.

Kate and Gerry McCann left three-year-old Maddie and her two-year-old twin siblings sleeping in their Portugal holiday home as they dined with friends at a nearby Tapas restaurant.

When they returned to the apartment, however, the tot had vanished, sparking a 10-year investigation into the mystery.

But detectives didn't make Kate, 48 and 47-year-old Gerry suspects for abandoning Maddie on compassionate grounds.

Former minister of internal affairs Rui Pereira slammed Portuguese cops for not making Kate, 48, and 47-year-old dad Gerry 'arguidos' (suspects) for abandonment.

Mr Pereira told Portuguese channel TV CMTV: "The error was not constituting the parents as arguidos for the crime of abandonment.

"At the beginning there was an extraordinary and ridiculous theory that said the English have very peculiar cultural customs.

"And therefore it was natural for them to leave the two-year-old twin siblings and the other three-year-old child alone in a bedroom for the parents to go out a few hundred metres away to socialise with their friends."


Portuguese authorities believed the English "truly have very specific cultural customs and it was natural to dine and drink", Mr Pereira added.

And he said there was "compassion" from the investigators towards the parents.

Moita Flores, a former police chief, told the show that if Kate and Gerry had been Portuguese, they would have been arrested for abandonment.

He added: "Have no doubts. If this had involved a Portuguese child our public ministry would have immediately set off measures which are in place to protect children.

"In our culture this kind of behaviour would have not been tolerated as reasonable. I am not even sure it is tolerated under Anglo-Saxon cultural values."


Pereira's admissions come after reports claimed Maddie was abducted during a botched burglary after she disturbed thieves who broke into her family's holiday home .

According to a claim in The Daily Star this week, the three-year-old was snatched after disrupting thieves who had broken into her family's holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal in 2007.

Only a handful of detectives are still assigned to the investigation, but the new theory could give them renewed hope they can solve the mystery of the missing girl.

Cops believe the three arguidos - formal suspects - could be key to cracking the case.

The latest rumours came after Met Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe announced cops have one final line of enquiry to pursue before the case is wound up.

Scotland Yard refused to discuss the final line of inquiry for operational purposes.

A spokesman said: "There is no comment while there is an on-going investigation."

I find it interesting that there is even an article about this in the UK press 
Its the only 'new' thing in a long time when they usually never report anything from Portugals side

Another dead decoy duck courtesy of the UK tabloids? 

A spokesman said: "There is no comment while there is an on-going investigation." ?

Then perhaps you could explain the full press coverage, including photographic footage, of the visit to Portugal by Operation Grange whe they were digging for victory around the Ocean Club complex and flying around a la 007 looking for that missing piece of the jigsaw.

Seems to me Operation Grange are very selective when deciding what comments can and what comments can't be made while there is an on-going investigation.

Can you feed a dead duck?

I've long believed that the reason the Mcs were never charged with abandonment was because the GNR were working on the coup de grace - the Mcs involvement in the conspiracy to conceal the cadaver. Had they charged them with abandonment, then the GNR may well have to reveal their hand along with crucial evidence. 

Amaral & Co went for the 147 table clearance and were within a whisker of pulling it off.

Are all these Maddie stories in the press this week down to Clarence Mitchell ? Does he actually get paid by the papers for feeding all this bilge to them ? And do the Mccanns get paid too ? Is ithis the despairing death throes of a lost cause, or a genuine fight back after last week's court case ? Just wondered.

Hang on a minute - this is the Daily Mirror isn't it?  Since when do we believe what we read in the Mirror?

As for the comment about it being natural for English parents to leave their children alone, that originated from no other than he who controls what comes out in the press - Mitchell.

Apart from the word of the McCanns, is there any evidence that they left their children alone on that holiday? Remember that at least one member of the group was away from the table each night and Goncalo Amaral did suggest that all the children were in one apartment.

If it is true that Madeleine died on April 29th then no way would they have left the children alone for the rest of the week, they just wouldn't chance it.

Was the neglect claim nothing more than an alibi?  How could they claim abduction if they were present at the time?

And, if they were charged with neglect - how could the PJ possibly accuse them of being responsible for Madeleine's disappearance whilst they were out?

I would suggest that the PJ let them off the neglect charges in order bring more serious charges against them.  Just my opinion but the neglect charge just doesn't make sense.
