DAILY EXPRESS front page: “MADELEINE POLICE TO CALL McCANNS BACK They want parents and Tapas 9 friends for new quiz in Portugal”

“Police want Kate and Gerry McCann to return to Portugal before Christmas for fresh interrogations over the disappearance of their daughter Madeleine” Might it be all over by Christmas ?

“The couple could be forced into a confrontation with witnesses or be made to appear in an identity parade” An ID parade… To what ends? To see if they truly are Kate and Gerry McCann, the country’s most photographed couple?

First Portuguese police are heading to the UK to sit in on interviews between British police and the “Tapas 9”

Says a “source close to the case” in Portuguese newspaper Correio da Manha: “When the operations begin on British soil we will be in a position to determine if it is necessary to bring people to Portugal. It may be necessary to do some identifications or to organise confrontations with witnesses”

Or may not be: “POLICE MAY OR MAY NOT CALL McCanns back” read all about it…
Says Portuguese newspaper, 24 Horas: “The McCanns are not going to escape a new police interrogation”

Her parents, Able and Lina, say a Moroccan-looking man tried to snatch her at their café in Portugal four months before Madeleine vanished.

Says Abel: “We want to see Maddie found as much as anyone. She and Carolina were doubles”

Says a voice at Metodo 3, the private detectives: “This could be relevant”

“TAPAS 7 SHOWDOWN” Seven? But what of the Tapas 9? What about the Tapas 9 and the Sangria 7, to avoid confusion?

Says Clarence Mitchell, the McCanns’ spokesman: “If they or their friends are required to go to Portugal they’ll be happy to comply”


There is to be a “face-to-face showdown” between Kate and Gerry McCann and their “holiday pals”

The aim for what sounds not enough unlike an episode of Trisha is for the police to expose “inconsistencies” in their statements
