The Portuguese Judiciary Police did not receive from the English authorities, investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, any request concerning the three men linked to thefts in 2007 in the Ocean Club, in Praia da Luz, to be questioned again. Madeleine McCann disappeared on May 3, 2007 from the apartment G5A of the the Ocean Club resort. She was three years old. According to Friday's edition of Telegraph, the British authorities would want to question three men, who had been in the past detained and interrogated (and released).
One of them worked at the Ocean Club, transporting tourists, and would be linked to thefts in the resort. According to the newspaper, phone calls between the three placed them in the area of the child's disappearance on the night of May 3. A PJ source guaranteed, however, to Público, that there is no request for these men to be questioned again.
