British authorities say that six suspects of Maddie's disappearance are in the Algarve
Proceedings requested to Portugal will focus on these individuals, of English and Portuguese nationalities, who had already been investigated

Of the 41 suspects that the British authorities believe to have an interest towards clarifying the Maddie case, six are in the Algarve. The CM found out, that most of the proceedings, requested by the English police to the Portuguese authorities within the scope of the new investigation opened in England over Madeleine's disappearance, will focus on these individuals.

CM learned the suspects are of English and Portuguese nationalities and were in the vicinity of Praia da Luz, in Lagos, at the time of the disappearance, in May 3, 2007.

They had already been investigated by the Judiciary Police (PJ), however the British police guarantees that they have new data, following the analyses of several phone records. It will be the cross-examination of that data that the investigation, which began with the pressure of the prime minister David Cameron [see on the side], is now focusing, leading to requests of judicial cooperation sent to several European countries, among them Portugal.

In order to fulfill the request, a team of six elements from the Judiciary Police directorship of the Southern area of Portugal was deployed, to carry out all the steps asked by the British police based on Portuguese law. The National PJ Director, Almeida Rodrigues, confirmed yesterday that the Portuguese authorities received a rogatory letter from the English authorities which is "being applied in accordance to the usual process". He also stated that the existing PJ team in Porto, headed by the Superior PJ Coordinator Helena Monteiro, reviewing the process will "continue to do their job" since "the situations of children who disappear are never truly closed while it is not determined what has happened".

The Attorney General, Joana Marques Vidal, also confirmed yesterday that "there is a process in England" and that it was asked to Portugal, within the scope of international judicial cooperation, "to carry out some proceedings".

The Portuguese team will support the British unit in charge of 'Operation Grange', from the Metropolitan Police, who are reviewing all the leads.

Maddie Case: Does it make sense to carry on with the investigation?

No one can be absolutely at peace until it is established and made public what really happened to Madeleine McCann. The investigation should never have been closed and it should never have given in to political pressure.
Sérgio A. Vitorino, chief sub-editor

There will be very few cases in Portugal who have had from the police authorities an investigation as thorough and exhaustive. The truth is that, here as abroad, there are mysteries that neither time can set apart. The case of the small child Maddie is one of them.
