HELL OF BEING SUSPECTS IN MADELEINE HUNT, BY KATE


Kate McCann’s memoir, titled “Madeleine”
is published on Thursday –Madeleine’s eighth birthday

Tuesday May 10,2011

By David Pilditch

KATE McCann has relived the nightmare moment when she and husband Gerry became suspects in the investigation into their missing daughter.

Former GP Kate, 43, laid bare her shock and outrage after bungling Portuguese police tried to blame the couple over Madeleine’s disappearance.

It followed a shambolic police hunt that had led Kate to break down in frustration and rage.

In a deeply personal account, Kate described the horror of being hauled before detectives and subjected to a brutal interrogation.

After being summoned to the police station in the Algarve town of Portimao, officers shook their heads as Kate outlined the events that happened on the night of May 3, 2007 when Madeleine vanished.

They repeatedly told her that her story was unconvincing.

Kate wrote in her new memoir: “I began to wail hysterically, drawing breath in desperate gasps. They proposed that when I’d put Madeleine to bed that evening it wasn’t the last time I’d seen

her. But it was. It was! I felt I was being bullied, and I suppose I was.”

She added she thought that the tactics were deliberate to knock her off balance.

Kate wrote that her lawyer told her of a police proposal for a plea deal to a lesser charge.

Carlos Pinto de Abreu told her that if Kate admitted Madeleine died in an accident at their apartment, and she confessed to hiding and disposing of her body, she would receive a much more lenient sentence of only two years.

She wrote that the incentive seemed to be that if the McCanns did not agree with the lesser charge the Portuguese authorities could seek to charge them with murder – resulting in life sentences should they have been found guilty.

Kate was told that if she went along with the proposal Gerry could go back to work. She said her incredulity turned to rage at the suggestion that she had lied.

After Kate’s interrogation, it was Gerry’s turn. Kate told how her husband pleaded with officers to tell them whether they could provide evidence that their daughter was dead.

Police suggested that they had rock-solid DNA evidence.

At one stage their lawyer said that if they were Portuguese the evidence “would be enough to put you in prison”.

It was only 11 months later, after the case was shelved and official files released, that the couple learnt the truth that there was no evidence whatsoever that Madeleine was dead.

The revelations come in Kate’s 384-page memoir, titled “Madeleine”, which is published on Thursday – Madeleine’s eighth birthday.

The McCanns, from Rothley, Leics, who also have six-year-old twins, Sean and Amelie, hope the publication will prompt people holding vital information about what happened to their child to come forward at last.
