THE QUESTION

The Home Secretary Theresa May has sent an official request to Lisbon for permission for Scotland Yard to begin a new investigation in Portugal into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

It follows the disclosure that the Met has identified 38 potential suspects - including 12 Britons - who are “of interest” because of their presence in Portugal when Madeleine vanished".

In relation to the above, please provide the following information:

1. The date the letter to the Portuguese was sent

2. To whom (name of department and person) the letter was sent (the article merely says it was sent 'to Lisbon'), and

3. The full text of the letter.”

THE ANSWER

The Home Secretary did not send the Letter of Request to Portugal.

The letter was sent by the Crown Prosecution Service.

However, the Home Office can confirm in answer to your questions that;

1) The letter was sent on 17 July 2013.

2) The letter was addressed to Magistrat Du Parquet, Procuradoria General de la Republica.

3) The letter itself is exempt from disclosure under sections 27(1)(a), 31(1)(a), and 31(1)(b) of the Freedom of Information Act.

The reasons why we have taken this decision are:

Section 27(1)(a) - International Relations

Information is exempt information if its disclosure under this Act would, or would be likely to, prejudice relations between the United Kingdom and any other State. It would be a breach of trust to publicly disclose details of ongoing negotiations between two countries.

Section 31(1)(a) – Law Enforcement

Information is exempt information if its disclosure under this Act would, or would be likely to prejudice the prevention or detection of crime. This is an ongoing police investigation with several suspects at large.

Section 31(1)(b) – Law Enforcement

Information is exempt information if its disclosure under this Act would, or would be likely to prejudice the apprehension or prosecution of offenders. This is an ongoing police investigation with several suspects at large.

The conclusion of the libel trial in Portugal is a foregone one, I am almost 100% certain of it.
Press coverage of Amaral on the steps of Court with his victorious speech will be debris compared to the asteroid news of arrest of the several suspects !

Hello Kevin.......! Did you not notice a dishonest lawyer stood in the way of Justice in that case?

In this case, did you also conveniently forget Isabel Duarte had to back down on the books she held onto tightly for dear life and look what happened ! It's a pretty damn good indication.

I wonder why Amaral didn't ask for his assets to be released at the same time as the books. Probably because the question of libel had not been addressed. I think Amaral looks like a broken man who knows he is beaten.

Err...which two so and so were spotted with tears running down their tensed faces in the public recently ?  
Broken in spirit maybe because he's victimised, but not quite the same as that odious pair scare shitless of the Police coming for them.....
Who's going to laugh at the steps of Court ?  Not the absent pair, that is for SURE.

What if the real and only point of the investigation in Portugal is to take away attention from the lawsuit against Amaral. One strategic arrest on the day of the trial, and maybe another one if he wins on the day of the verdict? 

A release of the suspect afterwards, but then the press will have forgotten the trial.

I think that most people would not look their best if a pair of vicious hate-filled individuals, together with their influential friends, forced them out of their job and then tried to bankrupt them when they tried to put their side of the story over.
 
DaveL, could you at least make an effort to spell "Bennett" correctly?

I've seen a few posters reference Amaral's illness; can someone tell me what's wrong with him? I also saw a mention of his weight loss, is that related to illness? I'm sorry to hear he's been ill, poor guy.

Edited for punctuation.

Apologies - it may be too late in the day for me and all the flickering emoticons in your previous post have done my head in - but what is it you're asking if you're right about?

I was right about the honesty of the Yard in the review and now in the investigation.

I Always believed it could not be a whitewash.

What make you think it is NOT a whitewash? The fact that an idiot at the home-office abusively uses the words suspects??
