New questioning starts today at the Policia Judiciaria, in Faro, at the request of Scotland Yard

The eleven witnesses include a man with a criminal record over sexual abuse of a British tourist, in praia da Luz, in 1995. Portuguese, he resembles one of the e-fits, he had journalists on his doorstep back in 2008, and was photographed holding a shotgun.

The Policia Judiciaria (PJ) discarded him at the time, but Scotland Yard considers him a suspect. The detectives want to know what he did on the 3rd of May of 2007 (the day when Madeleine McCann, aged three, disappeared), his phone calls and bank movements that day, what connections he has to Sergey Malinka (one of the four men that were made arguidos in July) and if the police already has his DNA or fingerprints.

Most of the almost 130 questions are incriminating. Nevertheless, he is summoned as a witness, just like the other ten persons. 

Robert Murat questioned 

One of the most eagerly awaited questionings is that of Robert Murat (the Portuguese investigation's first arguido), which is scheduled for tomorrow, just like his wife's, Michaela Walczuch, and her former husband's, Luis Antonio. The list also includes Silvia Baptista, the head of the Ocean Club's workers, the resort's manager John Hill, and his wife.


On Friday, a meeting is scheduled between the two police forces to discuss the outcome of the diligences that were requested by the British authorities and executed by the PJ. This meeting will also be attended by the leader of the Scotland Yard's team, Andy Redwood, who is to retire at the end of this month, and by the chief inspector who will replace him. Nicola Wall leads a team that is specialised in homicide and violent crime.
