MADDY WATCH Anorak’s at-a-glance guide to press coverage of Madeleine McCann


“Madeleine McCann may have been condemned to a life of slavery working as a ‘little maid’ for a rich Arab family…” Or not

Page 5: “’Madeleine will be used as a little maid’” so suggests Inspector Hicham Alaoui of the Moroccan Police in El Hajeb near Fez

Little maids, notes the paper, are “collected by rich families as ‘curiosities’ as well as servants. A woman from a group called Ecpatuk says such children are “vulnerable to abuse”. The Express sys the girls are abused “physically, emotionally and sexually”. Can Madeleine McCann be among them? Maybe…

“Sacked detective called in to help with the probe” Chief Inspector Goncalo Amaral is talking with new chief Paulo Rebelo

“Fury over magazine ‘sick’ ads” German magazine titanic has lampooned the case, using Madeleine’s image in spoof supermarket adverts. Gerry and Kate McCann call it “sick” and “very hurtful”. The magazine says Madeleine McCann is “getting a bit much for many people”

DAILY MIRROR front page: “Clear us… you have no case”

Says a friend of Kate and Gerry McCann: “They are adamant they should now be cleared”, as are many suspects in ongoing investigations

Page 7: “McCann ‘clear us’ demand’” Says Clarence Mitchell: “If the reports are true clearly it would indicate the police absolutely, and quite rightly, have no case against Kate and Gerry”

DAILY MAIL front page: “Oh. Come off it, Heather, how dare you compare your ordeal to Kate McCann’s?” Heather Mills is on the telly

Page 7: “Police pursuit of McCanns ‘is running out of steam’” The public prosecutor in Portugal says Kate and Gerry McCann will not face further police interviews “unless detectives can produce stronger evidence against them”

Mark Williams-Thomas, a former detective with Surrey Police, says the McCann’s private detectives could be on the wrong trail in Morocco. Or not
