Madeleine McCann case decision time by cops on Monday

Portugal’s top law chief yesterday said he will announce a “solution” to the Madeleine McCann case on Monday.

It could clear parents Kate and Gerry of involvement in her disappearance.

Prosecutors have reviewed the final police report into what happened to five-year-old Madeleine after she disappeared from a rented holiday apartment in Praia da Luz last May. The 426-day police investigation ended two weeks ago.

Detectives are thought to have found nothing linking the couple to Madeleine’s death or abduction.

Now Pinto Monteiro will disclose whether he is bringing charges or closing the case. The McCanns desperately want to see police files for possible leads. But they and ex-pat Robert Murat could remain suspects even if the case is shelved – and would not be allowed to know what is being done to find Madeleine.

The McCanns’ spokesman Clarence Mitchell said: “We’ve heard nothing official.” Heart specialist Gerry, 39, and GP Kate, 40, recently returned from holiday with their twins Sean and Amelie.

Last week they won a partial victory when Leicestershire police gave them limited access to files in the case. Detectives have failed to discover if Madeleine was kidnapped or killed, it is believed.
