Maddie: The 40 vital questions

Original Source: METRO: 16 SEPTEMBER 2007
Sunday, September 16, 2007
Kate McCann is to be grilled by British police on 40 questions she allegedly refused to answer in Portugal, it has been claimed.

The judge in the case is said to have authorised a fresh interrogation, which is expected tomorrow or Wednesday.

The questions have been sent to police via Europol, a Portuguese newspaper reported.

A McCann family spokeswoman refused to comment on the story, saying: 'It relates to the Madeleine investigation and comes under judicial secrecy.'

Police are also seeking permission to dismantle the hire car Kate and Gerry McCann used three weeks after daughter Madeleine's disappearance.

Officers want to look for traces of the youngster's skin. Sources close to the investigation are said to have discovered that hair found in the vehicle cannot be matched to her.

Meanwhile, Portuguese police were unavailable for comment as it is believed spokesman Chief Insp Olegario Sousa has been taken off the inquiry.

And yesterday it was revealed the joint head of the probe is set to face a criminal hearing over an alleged cover-up in the three-year-old case of a girl who also disappeared in the Algarve.

Chief Insp Goncalo Amaral is accused of concealing evidence that police tortured the mother of Joana Cipriano, eight, into a confession.

Leonor Cipriano later retracted her statement but was convicted of murder and jailed for 16 years.

Three other officers are also being investigated, including recentlyretired Chief Insp Paulo Pereira Cristovao, who writes for a Portuguese newspaper that has leaked several stories about the investigation.

A further officer is accused of fabricating evidence.

Four-year-old Madeleine, who was three at the time she vanished, was reported missing from the family's apartment in Praia da Luz on May 3. The McCanns deny any part in her disappearance
