40 Questions for McCanns

The Portuguese detectives will send a legal letter to their British counterparts outlining some 40 questions, they insist the parents of Madeleine McCann must answer. The new interrogation will be based on those 40 + questions Kate McCann refused to answer before police in Portimao on September 7. It will focus on two "missing" hours on a trip the McCanns made to the Spanish city of Huelva on August 3 when the McCanns reportedly 'evaporated' from the view of accompanying journalists.

Detectives are suspecting that Madeleine died in the holiday apartment at Praia da Luz and that her parents hid the body and moved it three months later on the trip to Spain.

But the McCann's spokesman, Clarence Mitchell, told yesterday that they have a full account of their visit to Huelva. He said the couple were never alone during the trip and were always in the company of PR adviser Jon Corner and a cameraman. There is even a video of the trip on YouTube, showing the McCanns handing out leaflets as part of their drive to find their daughter.

But, Spanish authorities said: "There is no investigation involving Madeleine's parents in the province of Huelva." Forensic tests from the McCanns' Renault Scenic hire car are expected back within two weeks. Police believe the results will give a "fresh breath" to the investigation. Link
