Portuguese Expert Urges No Prosecution Of McCanns

FROM Paulo Reis in Portugal:

The possibility of Madeleine parents being accused of negligence was considered “ridiculous” by Luís Villas-Boas, head of “Refúgio Aboim Ascenção” and one of the leading Portuguese figures in the area of child protection.

Villas-Boas, interviewed by Diário de Notícias (DN), referred a case, in 2001, when a British couple abandoned a small baby near the Lagos airport and took a plane to UK.
“That was a crime and the couple wasn’t accused or arrested. I’m surprised that the British are looking, now, for evidence to accuse the parents of the kidnapped child, when they didn’t arrested that couple, a few years ago”…

But what would they be prosecuted for? They did nothing wrong…
