Madeleine Cop 'Quits Over Slurs'

The official police spokesman in the Madeleine McCann inquiry has reportedly quit the case.

Chief Inspector Olegario Sousa is said to have quit in disgust at the way the missing girl's parents have been treated by his men.

Sky sources said Portuguese police had given their counterparts in the UK 40 questions they want the couple to answer.

Gerry and Kate McCann - who are now back home in Rothley, Leicestershire - are expected to be given the list in the next few days.

However, the couple's lawyers say they have yet to be informed about further interviews.

The McCanns have been named official suspects in Portugal where newspaper reports have linked them to their daughter's disappearance.

They deny any wrongdoing and plan to sue one Portuguese paper which said the police believe they killed Madeleine.

Mr Sousa is reportedly upset at leaks to the local press from his officers which he feels are unfair and designed to undermine the McCanns' position.

Sky News Crime Correspondent Martin Brunt said: "The official line is that he was taken off the case on Friday because it has moved from the police to the prosecution.

"But word on the ground is that some people were unhappy about the leaks to the media.

"His phone was switched off at the weekend, which is unusual because he normally answers it."

Madeleine has been missing since May 3 when she disappeared from her family's holiday apartment in Praia da Luz.

Her parents were having dinner with friends in a nearby restaurant at the time.
