McCann case - Both parents named as official suspects

In a bizarre twist both parents of missing four year old Madeleine McCann, have been declared as official suspects in the ongoing investigation into the diappearance of their daughter. The dramatic development has unfolded over the last 24 hours following a period of intense questioning of both Kate and Gerry McCann by Portuguese detectives. No charges have been brought and no arrests have been made however both parents will have to attend a court hearing within the next 48 hours in order for police to present their evidence. No bail conditions have been attached at present but it is unlikely that the McCanns will be able to leave Portugal in the near future. As a result of their status of arguida or official suspect the couple are banned from speaking to the media.

Gerry McCann left Portimao Police Station at approx 12.10 am accompanied by his solicitor Carlos Pinto de Abreu following 8 hours of intense questioning. As he stood for photographs looking pale and exhausted his solicitor read a brief statement firstly in Portuguese announcing his clients change in staus, from witness to arguido. Portuguese police are yet to make any further official statement, both parents deny any involvement into the diappearance of their daughter. This shocking revelation comes on day 127 following Madeleine's disappearance on May 3rd 2007.
