Scotland Yard cops have out their trip on hold after failing to reach an agreement on the interview status of 11 people they were due to quiz

 
Madeleine McCann detectives have been forced to delay the interview of 11 suspects

Cops hoping for a breakthrough in the case of missing Madeleine McCann were dealt a blow after they were forced to postpone plans to quiz new suspects.

Detectives put their trip to Portugal on hold after they failed to reached an agreement over the interview status of 11 people they were due to question.

They had been given the go-ahead for the new round of interviews next week after a new criminal prosecutor in the case approved a fifth international letter of request.

A British man and a woman were understood to be among those facing a list of questions over the night Madeleine McCann disappeared from her Algarve holiday resort.


It is believed Operation Grange detectives cancelled their five-day trip to Faro over confusion about whether some of the people set to be interviewed would be questioned as arguidos - formal suspects in Portugal - or witnesses.

Prosecutor Ines Sequeira is off sick and was unable to clarify the situation, sparking the suspension of the trip by DCI Andy Redwood and his colleagues.

A new date for the interviews has not been set - and they are now unlikely to happen this year.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "We have never officially confirmed when we are going out and we're not going to give a running commentary on this case."

'Prosecutor Ines Sequeira is off sick'

I've lost count of how many people involved with the PJ judiciary in this case - suddenly feel poorly

Nearly as many as in the Tapasniks group during their ill-fated holiday

'Flucht in die Krankheit'

as my old buddy Hermann the German used to say

But didn't a news article last week infer the interviews had started. I can't remember where it was published but it was the one about the OC gardener. So both articles can't be correct. Which one is? The interviews went ahead last week or they are postponed until next year. You couldn't make it up ..... but someone obviously has.

Not even a hint of 'a source said' in this article. Sounds like rubbish to me.

Yep, although I am disappointed that we didn't get to see DCI Redwood stood on the steps of Scotland Yard ranting, "Every time we go there we have to make arrangements for our children to be looked after, we have to bewk flights, we have to bewk hotels..."  Very Happy

In view of the Murat bombshell today, does this mean that his interview won't be happening any time soon?

Beeb are reporting - in fact they've amended their original report to emphasise the fact - that it is the Portuguese police that will be undertaking the questioning. Perhaps the presence of the British is irrelevant?

Or perhaps this Mirror report was inaccurate in the first place, and things are happening now?

I'm wondering if the investigation is at a stage now,that the info coming out is what has happened not what is not going to.

Standard procedure under ILOR is that local police officers ask the questions, submitted in writing by the foreign police, whose detectives may sit in the interrogation, but not ask additional questions.

Textusa has a new post and this is one of the comments. Included is a report from Portugal News saying that the interviews could only be delayed a few days and could happen this year.

Interesting too is the information about the damages paid to RM. Bigger than the Mccanns.

Textusa, looks like your well wishes to Ines have worked: The postponement is not expected to be too lengthy, with sources saying that once clarity had been received from Portimão Public Prosecutor Inês Sequeira regarding the legalities flagged by Portuguese police, interviews would be re-scheduled “within ten to 15 days”.

Madeleine - Police could re-interview Robert Murat as a witness
by Brendan de Beer, in News • 20-11-2014 14:32:00 • 0 Comments
British expat Robert Murat, the first person to be declared a suspect or arguido in the Madeleine McCann investigation back in 2007, is among the 11 people British police want to talk to in a fresh round of questioning.
Questioning of seven suspects and the interviewing of four witnesses had been slated to start next Monday, but was postponed on Tuesday evening this week due to what Portuguese authorities termed “legal issues.”

A source close to the investigation told The Portugal News on Wednesday that Robert Murat has been listed as one of the four witnesses by Scotland Yard. Seven potential suspects have also been identified.

The postponement is not expected to be too lengthy, with sources saying that once clarity had been received from Portimão Public Prosecutor Inês Sequeira regarding the legalities flagged by Portuguese police, interviews would be re-scheduled “within ten to 15 days”.

Speaking to The Portugal News on Wednesday, Robert Murat said neither he nor his lawyer had received a formal request to appear before detectives in the Algarve, but said he “would do so freely”.

“My conscience is clear and I have no problem speaking to police again”.

Asked whether he was concerned about these latest reports, he replied: “I have more important things to worry about, like running my business and paying my taxes.”

Robert Murat, who runs an IT business in the Algarve, added that he would be taking some time off as he did not want to be hounded by the world’s media as a result of this latest revelation, even if he has only been identified as a mere witness and not a formal suspect.

Back in 2008, Robert Murat received 757,000 euros in damages from a number of British newspapers for false allegations they published with regards to disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

He also received an apology from the newspapers over allegations they made regarding his private life since Madeleine went missing from Praia da Luz in May 2007.
Included in the settlement were Michaela Wulczach and Sergey Malinka, who were similarly victims of the false reports.

Robert Murat had launched legal action against 11 newspapers and one broadcaster in what was the highest number of claims ever made against different British media in the same case.

Eight newspapers were specifically targeted, while three others were said to have been “peripheral” to the case.

Robert Murat said at the time he felt “vindicated” and expressed hope he could “get on with his life” after months in the wilderness and being the victim of numerous attacks on his character in both the British and Portuguese press.

The out-of-court settlement, was £50,000 higher than that received by Kate and Gerry McCann from the Express Group of Newspapers.

This ruling was followed last year by a Lisbon Court ordering national daily Correio da Manhã to pay a total of 15,000 euros in damages to Robert Murat for libelous claims it made about his lifestyle.
