Madeleine McCann Prime Suspect could be tried in UK

The UK Home Secretary is now negotiating with the Portuguese Attorney to try the prime suspect in the Madeleine McCann case in England upon arrest.

Although Madeleine went missing from her family holiday apartment in the Portuguese Algarve, Theresa May has been pushing the Portuguese authorities to support a trial in the English courts. Swiftly following the deportation of Abu Qatada, May sees the rescue of Madeleine McCann to be the next prominent issue her office will deal with the backing of the UK Prime Minister, David Cameron.

While Operation Grange held a press conference this week to announce their current findings to date, their Portuguese equivalents made several arrests (arguidos) including a freelance journalist and their former partner. Both were detained 28th June while accusations of perverting the course of justice are investigated.

A former lead Portuguese investigator in the McCann case has been requested by appointment to answer further questions by Grange aligned detectives.

In the United Kingdom more arrests are scheduled for the weekend.

Madeleine’s parents Kate and Gerry are very pleased with the progress made so far and are due to meet with Operation Grange deceives and the Home Secretary this week.
