THE SUN : “UK cops in McCann talks”

BRITISH police have met Portugal’s public prosecutor to discuss handing over evidence into the Maddie McCann probe. Local cops are set to close the case on Monday and clear parents Kate and Gerry over their daughter’s disappearance.

Yesterday a Portuguese newspaper claimed British cops tried to stop information – including the results of a DNA test on the McCanns’ hire car – from being made public.

DAILY MAIL : “British police failed to stop DNA evidence in McCann case from being made public”

Under the headline ‘English in Portimao to Protect Secrecy’, the newspaper Correio da Manha claimed two Leicestershire officers tried to stop information including results of a DNA test on a sample from the McCanns’ Renault Scenic hire car from being made public…

Last night, Leicestershire police refused to discuss the details of a meeting between public prosecutor Jose Cunha de Magalhaes e Meneses and the officers.

DAILY TELEGRAPH : “Madeleine McCann: police case set to be dropped”

The police investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann is expected to be shelved on Monday and the three formal suspects linked to the case – including her parents – cleared of any suspicion…

Expected. By whom?

The McCanns’ spokesman, Clarence Mitchell, said the couple had heard nothing official from their lawyers in Portugal. “Kate and Gerry are waiting to see what the Attourney General has to say on Monday like everyone else,” he said. “They are well aware of the reports suggesting that the case may about to be closed.”

THE TIMES : “Madeleine McCann: Police discuss what evidence will be made public”

In recent weeks Portuguese newspapers, citing anonymous sources, have repeatedly reported that the investigation would be shelved shortly, but could be reopened if new evidence emerged.

It’s an open and shut and open case.
