They know Praia da Luz. They know each other. They made phone calls on the night of the disappearance. Some have a criminal record over small crimes. Others are former Ocean Club workers. Seven Portuguese and British citizens fit this profile and for Scotland Yard (SY), these are the new suspects in the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

The group is going to be made arguido and questioned by Polícia Judiciária (PJ) officers, who will also question four witnesses under request from the British authorities. The list of eleven includes, at least, one woman. The diligences are scheduled for the last week of November at the Southern Directory, in Faro. They are part of the fifth letter rogatory and have been authorised by the new Public Ministry prosecutor in Portimão, Inês Sequeira, whom the inquiry has been redistributed to.

11 suspects already

These new seven [arguidos] join the four men that have been made arguidos and questioned in July. The British investigation now has eleven suspects. SY’s thesis is maintained. On the 3rd of May of 2007, there was a failed burglary at apartment 5A where the McCann couple left their children alone while they went out for dinner; Madeleine, then 3 years old, woke up and was abducted so she could not recognise and denounce the intruders; the crime may have been carried out by one of the arguidos or by several of them, in association. This was one of the theories that the PJ followed back then, and was discarded because of a lack of indications of a break-in to the apartment.

SY’s new investigation phase appears at a time when the British press reports that Andy Redwood’s team was reduced and now has less members. The detectives are expected to request the PJ’s National Directory authorisation to watch the questioning and interrogations in Faro, just like they did in July.
