The Portuguese police have tried to find and interview all known paedophiles” has admitted a source close to the investigation quoting the detectives of the McCann’s.
According to this source, who is still quoting the two English detectives, “the questionings were not as complete as they could have been” leading them to verify all the leads developed by the Judicial Police up until the archiving of the case.
According to the investigation reports (volume II pages 293 to 297), one part still being under the secrecy of justice, the work carried out by the PJ to find and question all the individuals reported  for the practise of sexual crimes, started immediately after Maddies’ disappearance – on May 6, the inspectors Manuel Lico, Nuno Martins, Luis Fontes, Frederico Louro, Pedro Maia and José Matos have investigated  more than 14 suspects, among them, an individual who is working as an expert at the Judicial Court of Portimão.
“All the individuals known or suspect in paedophilia cases or sexual assault were verified quickly” said a PJ source, adding that “only the English were verified later, because the information took a long time to get to us, but we have not found any link between the suspects and the disappearance of the little girl”.
Questioned about the work of the Portuguese authorities, a former private investigator of Kate and Gerry McCann admitted that “Gonçalo Amaral did exactly everything that could be done, and any team trying to investigate Maddies’ disappearance can only hope for a stroke of luck.”

The detectives want to question a very violent predator

Charles O´Neill, the man who the two former police officers hired by the parents of Madeleine McCann want to interrogate now, is a Scot who lived in Gran Canaria and who is in jail awaiting trial for homicide. The private detectives, who continue with the McCann’s campaign, admit not knowing whether the man was at least in Portugal the night of Madeleine’s disappearance, but are saying that he is one of seven people of “interest” to their investigation.
The Scot, described as an “extremely violent paedophile predator”, has a past filled with paedophilia crimes where the victims were always boys. According to the Spanish authorities, who have investigated the predator’s criminal career in their country, nothing indicates the existence of a link with Maddies’ disappearance, but the man is one of the suspects “who deserves to be investigated at length in the disappearance cases that occurred in the archipelago of the Canaries” confirmed an investigator.
The private detectives have already ruled out some of the first suspects, including two Portuguese who live close to Praia da Luz, Mário and Joaquim, and a German, but still maintain an interest in a British citizen identified as Andrew.

Maddie: Detectives “clown around” in Germany

PortuguêsFrancêsEspañol

Raymond Hewlett

Raymond Hewlett

The two former English policemen that were hired by the McCann couple, returned to England yesterday without having questioned the alleged “suspect” in the disappearance of Madeleine, after the German authorities classified their presence in Aachen as “a clown act”, accusing them of “trying to pressure the local judicial authorities”, using contacts among the British diplomatic representatives in Germany.
The private investigators – who have no police authority whatsoever in England or abroad – wanted to question Raymond Hewlett, a British citizen aged 64 who lived in Tavira when Maddie disappeared in Praia da Luz, and who has served prison sentences in three paedophilia cases that involved teenagers.
The prosecutor in Aachen, in statements to 24horas, confirmed that the English authorities manifested interest in questioning Hewlett about two old cases but that “the official request doesn’t even mention the Maddie case and does not request the individual’s detention”.
For the German authorities, everything that has been published in the English tabloids, “has been nothing but pure speculation” about a sad disappearance case.
“We can’t prevent the British citizen from leaving the hospital, as soon as that is possible in clinical terms, and especially if he wishes to do so”, said Robert Deller, in an interview to German television before he spoke to 24horas.
“We are willing to cooperate with the Portuguese and English authorities but these gentlemen (the detectives) have no authority whatsoever and we’ll be glad when they leave the hospital door. Them, and the journalists that they brought along”, a spokesman for the police in Aachen confessed to 24horas.
Hewlett, who had been admitted to the University Clinic in Aachen for cancer treatment, refused to answer to the McCanns’ investigators but told 24horas that on the day that Maddie disappeared, he was camped in Fuzeta, the place where he took part in the monthly market and antiques sale. The English citizen, who was never involved in paedophilia cases in our country, was denounced to the McCanns’ investigators by an equally British couple, Alan and Cindy Thompson – who are known to authorities for equally having pretended that they knew where Bin Laden’s hideout was located.
24horas tried to contact Dave Edgar and Arthur Cowley, the two former policemen that form “Alpha Investigations Group”, but they refused to comment on why they consider the English man a suspect, after stating that Maddie “was not abducted by a paedophile” or transported on board of any boat.
In Portugal, a source at the PJ in Portimão confirmed that the information that has been published about the case is being “followed attentively” but that neither the McCann couple nor their investigators “delivered or communicated any new data” to the PJ.
