Madeleine McCann: Anorak’s look at the missing child in the news.

BBC : “Ex-suspect Murat ‘faces new questions’

Robert Murat..? The poor sod who was monstered and libelled?

Police investigating the disappearance of British girl Madeleine McCann are to question former suspect Robert Murat. A source close to the case has told the BBC that two of 11 people due to be questioned by officers in Portugal are Mr Murat and his wife.

Is the investigation starting over?

Four of the 11 are being interviewed as witnesses and seven as ‘arguidos’, or suspects. Mr Murat was named as an arguido in the case in 2007 but was later cleared by Portuguese police. He won substantial damages from various media organisations and has always denied any involvement in Madeleine McCann’s disappearance.

 The Guardian :

Speaking to the Guardian from his home in Portugal on Tuesday, Murat said neither he nor his lawyer had been contacted by the police but he would cooperate. “My conscience is clear and I have no problem speaking to police again,” he said.

Asked whether he was concerned about facing yet another interrogation, he replied: “I have more important things to worry about, like running my business, paying my taxes and I also need to paint my house.”

Round and round it goes.

Daniel was last seen by his parents David, 41, and Paula, 30, who are both unemployed, at 5pm on Saturday the 3rd of May after he left home to visit neighbours. *..Despite searches by officers through the night, there has been no sign of Daniel , said Detective Superintendent Julian Gregory.

The Indy :

The father of a seven year-old boy who has been missing for 11 years has claimed that the parents of Madeleine McCann have received “favouritism” over the campaign to find their daughter. Norfolk Police launched an extensive hunt for Daniel Entwistle, of Great Yarmouth, who failed to return to his home on May 4 2003, four years to the day before the disappearance of Madeleine McCann in Portugal.

Daniel was captured on a local shop’s CCTV and his bike was found near a local quay, leading to a river bed search. But he remains missing 11 years on and the case faded from the headlines.

David Entwistle, Daniel’s father, questioned the resources and media attention which the McCann case still receives, seven years after her unresolved disappearance.
