Portuguese Attorney General's Office: No request received from UK Police
London, May 16 (Lusa) - The British police will assist in the search for Madeleine McCann, who went missing in the Algarve in 2007, but, until now, has neither requested cooperation or the reopening of the process from the Portuguese authorities.
In a reply that was sent to Lusa agency today, the Attorney General's Office states that up to now, "neither the Attorney General's Office nor the prosecutors that are responsible for the case have received any request or application, neither for cooperation, nor for the reopening of the process".
Last week, the British Home Office informed that the police will help in the search for Madeleine McCann, following a request from the parents for the investigation process to be reviewed.
