The Portuguese will always be approaching this case from the correct angle, but they can only do so much if SY still refuse to hand over vital documents. Hopefully nothing has stopped AR from doing so and the Portuguese are in possession of all the facts/documents they need. I'm hoping he can hardly have flown over to Portugal to make requests and still be refusing to co operate with what the PJ want??

Stephen Lawrence murder: IPCC investigating former Met chief
- 24 minutes ago
- From the section UK
Lord Stevens was Deputy Commissioner of the Met from 1998 to 2000 - while the Macpherson report was being compiled
Former Metropolitan Police chief Lord Stevens is being investigated by the police watchdog over information he gave to the inquiry into the Met's handling of the Stephen Lawrence murder case.
The IPCC confirmed it was investigating the evidence Lord Stevens gave to the Macpherson Inquiry in 1998.
The Met said it referred the matter to the IPCC following a public complaint.
Lord Stevens has previously denied any wrongdoing.
He was Deputy Commissioner of the Met from 1998 to 2000, while the Macpherson report - which found evidence of institutional racism within the force - was being compiled.
It was ordered following concerns about the force's investigation into the murder of black teenager Stephen Lawrence, who was stabbed to death in an unprovoked attack by a gang of white youths in April 1993.
In a statement the Met said: "Following the receipt of a public complaint in relation to Lord John Stevens, former commissioner, the Metropolitan Police Service made a referral to the Independent Police Complaints Commission on 4 November 2014.
"The complaint has been made in relation to Lord Stevens' role as the then Deputy Commissioner and disclosure to the Macpherson Inquiry.
"This issue was raised in the Stephen Lawrence Independent Review by Mark Ellison QC, published on 6 March, where he concluded there were defects in the level of information that the MPS revealed to the Inquiry."

TYPICAL cop response!
Stevens: "Step very carefully, I'm not putting up with any more crap about this" he said.
"STEP VERY CAREFULLY"
GET YOUR 'THREAT' IN EARLY! THE EARLIER THE BETTER!
Just to add; If you use/used the word 'crap' within earshot of a police officer, you can be 'arrested' for 'using foul and abusive' language!
