The Portuguese Police knew a lot more about Madeleine's disappearance than they admitted, it is now becoming clear. They have been lying all along. They have fabricated allegations against the McCanns when there was good evidence right from the start that an abduction had taken place.
Portuguese politicians have a habit of keeping quiet about paedophilia, and the Police were unlikely to have been suppressing the true facts about Madeleine's abduction without authorisaton from higher up the tree.
Apart from the work being done to find Madeleine by the McCann's private detectives who claim to be close to finding her, there should be a second enquiry going on. How high up in the Portuguese hierarchy did the cover-up go?
