One day to go and the UK press is still confused!


Press Association Reports:

Portuguese police are due to arrive in the UK to sit in when the friends of Kate and Gerry McCann are interviewed.

The detectives, led by Paulo Rebelo, who is in charge of the Madeleine McCann case, will not actually question the friends of the couple but will be present at interviews carried out by officers from Leicestershire Constabulary.

The McCanns, from Rothley, Leicestershire, will not be questioned in relation to the disappearance of their four-year-old daughter from the Algarve holiday resort of Praia da Luz on May 3 last year.

Their spokesman Clarence Mitchell said the couple welcomed the interviews and were happy to be reinterviewed, but a request had not been made by Portuguese detectives.

Instead they will question the McCanns' friends - known as the "Tapas Seven" - who were with them the night Madeleine disappeared.

They will be interviewed as witnesses and are free to leave at any time, said a spokeswoman for Leicestershire Constabulary. No lawyers will be present.

There had been speculation that diaries and Madeleine's Cuddle Cat toy could be seized by Portuguese officers, but it is understood that no property will be searched or seized.

The Portuguese officers are expected to land at East Midlands Airport from Faro at 12.20pm on Monday.

They will be met by British officers and are expected to avoid the public arrivals lounge by being escorted out through a private exit once they have cleared customs.

The Portuguese officers are staying at a hotel in Leicester city centre.


The People reports

KATE AND GERRY MCCANN TO BE CLEARED
Cops to drop Kate & Gerry arguido claim Boost for missing Madeleine's parents
By Tom Carlin Tom.Carlin@People.Co.Uk

The cloud of suspicion hanging over Kate and Gerry McCann is set to be sensationally lifted by Portuguese police.

The couple's status as formal suspects - arguidos - in the disappearance of their four-year-old daughter Madeleine is about to be dropped, The People can reveal.

The dramatic move will follow a comprehensive review of the case which will be completed within weeks.

But the McCanns will not be cleared until after May 8 - five days after the first anniversary of Maddie's disappearance when the couple had hoped to be back in Portugal to boost the search.

A highly-placed Portuguese legal source told The People last night: "I can confirm a review of the case will be concluded next month.

"It may well be the case that Kate and Gerry's arguido status is about to be dropped."

A family friend of the McCanns said Kate and Gerry were "greatly encouraged" by these developments.

The couple had repeatedly pleaded for their arguido status to be lifted so they could concentrate on their search for Maddie.

Their lawyers have warned them not to return while they are stil suspects.

A family source added: "Any announcement that Kate and Gerry are no longer being treated as suspects will be a massive weight off their shoulders.

"But there will still be considerable heartache for them as the timing means this will not be likely until after the first anniversary of Maddie's disppearance."

The McCanns' spokesman Clarence Mitchell said: "If they returned now to Portugal it would be a distraction and would put pressure on police.

Their lawyers would block it anyway.

"But once their arguido status has been lifted, they will feel differently.

"They have discussed the possibility of returning but nothing has yet been agreed." Maddie went missing from the family's Algarve holiday flat in Praia da Luz on May 3 last year as her parents ate tapas nearby.

Kate - both 39-year-old doctors from Rothley, Leics - were made official suspects in September after months of interviews.

But despite immense pressure from investigators pushing for a confession, they have always maintained their innocence. An insider said: "It is great news that Kate and Gerry are finally set to be cleared.

"But at the same time it also shows the police have got no idea about what happened to Madeleine.

"It is almost a year since she disappeared and we still don't seem any closer to finding her."


'we say' THE PEOPLE: Mercy for McCanns

There is only one thing that Kate and Gerry McCann really want. And that is the safe return of their beloved daughter Madeleine.

But The People's revelation today that the Portuguese authorities will lift their arguido status next month will at least ease their burden.

To be named as suspects in their daughter's disappearance was the ultimate twist of the knife in their almost unbearable agony.

It led to cruel whispering and finger pointing and false allegations they had to go to court to refute.

There should NEVER have been any suggestion that the McCanns were anything other than distraught parents doing everything they could to get Maddie back.

Now they can return to Portugal to continue the search without the hateful curse of arguido hanging over them.

There is only one thing worse than having your child taken away.

And that is being wrongly suspected of having something to do with it.
