Madeleine McCann: More Evidence, Tony Parsons Knows And Claims

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

DAILY MAIL: “McCanns win right to see key evidence about Madeleine’s disappearance held by police”

The parents of Madeleine McCann today won the right to see key documents held by police relating to her disappearance.


The McCanns had planned to take Leicestershire Police to the High Court but no case was heard as the force agreed to give them access to 81 pieces of information gathered as part of the investigation.

Progress? Elsewhere, in the same online article:

The couple, who are both 40, are not expected to attend today’s hearing in London before Mrs Justice Hogg…The hearing is scheduled to take place in the High Court’s family division, although it will be held in open court.

Such is the news.

: “Portuguese police to rule out Madeleine McCann abduction theory”

Portuguese police have decided that Madeleine McCann could not have been abducted, it was claimed yesterday.


They believe the youngster died in her family’s rented holiday flat in Praia da Luz.


The newspaper Correio da Manha said a 50-page report, handed to prosecutors last week, reveals “new and strong doubts” about Gerry and Kate McCanns’ claim that their daughter was snatched.

So says a report about a report in a Portuguese newspaper.

TONY PARSONS: A case of cruelty

It happens less and less these days, simply because the story of Madeleine McCann is slipping from the news.

But every time that little girl’s face appears on the TV screen, our five-year-old daughter looks up and says exactly the same five words: “Did they find Madeleine yet?”

That little girl, the one who disappeared.

Somebody knows something. Almost certainly more than one person knows something. It’s not enough to shrug and walk away.

The Mirror’s Lori Campbell didn’t shrug.
