“The Case is confidential in England

During the investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, the British police were "invited" to sign a document of confidentiality that prevents them today from talking about what happened in Portugal or in England, a procedure that is not normal for police in England. "It is normal in cases with the secret services, and that document is signed right at the beginning. Now with normal police, undertaking a criminal investigation, that doesn't happen," said Amaral.

The former coordinator of the Judicial Police of CID in Portimão goes further and notes that it was Stuart Prior, one of the most important officers of the British police sent to Portugal, who said, regarding the evidence collected against the parents of Madeleine, that "he had arrested people in England with much less."

...."British Police Officers cannot investigate a Crime that took place in a foreign country to help in an Investigation unless invited" -------------------------------------------------------------------

There is no political will to re-open the case...

Simple fact is the Met has no jurisdiction. Anything found has to be dealt with by portuguese.

Positive side , 30 old boys in the MET due for retirement get to keep their jobs...
