That is what I thought it might mean. Although it could have meant the Portuguese Police. I thought that the British police only became involved when it became pretty certain that the investigation had been botched from the start. I can only assume that they would have done exactly he same for any other couple.
Having said would not be easy to get a satisfactory response. You would need to put a great deal of effort into it.
The problem that the police have with this case is the time elapsed and the poor(?) quality of the recorded evidence at the time. Far from being  'jolly', this must be a hell of a difficult case do work on. Sad

Come to think of it, the tempo is moving forwards? That makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

An incredible piece of police say-nothing bullsh!t, have they nothing better to do with their time, except increase it, moving forwards?

pursuing several lines of enquiry is plodspeak for "we are clutching a few straws as otherwise we've no idea what happened."
Report naydam February 14, 2014 2:19 PM GMT
They are trying to get on with an investigation. They would probably appreciate if Joe Public and the press would let them get on with it. I doubt if the police ever want to make interim reports unless appealing for witnesses.
I don't suppose that anybody might consider that all this travelling to and from Portugal might be a pain in the arse.
Everything is stacked against them and it takes a lot of self-discipline and a strong work ethic to maintain your professional standards in situations like that. It's particularly annoying when everybody seems to think that you are just enjoying yourself!

Perhaps these accusations say more about the posters than the police. Perhaps the accusations are correct. Maybe they DO have a sliding scale of funds allotted to missing children, depending upon the financial state of the parents. I suppose it could, or maybe should, be argued that the child of a well-educated, married couple might represent a greater loss than the urchin of some single woman who will never work and doesn't know who it's father is.

I know you have always been supportive of the enquiry Naydam - contrary to the majority of we cynics.
But even you would agree the police, if you are correct, have created their own problem with nonsense such as the 'Crimewatch' programme and promises of developments and imminent arrests of unknown burglars etc. Also the Lisbon libel case which is stagnant.
This is going nowhere - not this week or next or next month or year, I'm sad to say.

I have to agree, Ivor. The trail, if there ever was a trail, has gone cold. To be honest, I was always very worried that the media made such a big thing of the easily identifiable abnormality with her eye. Whoever had her, if indeed she WAS kidnapped, would surely realise that could prove to be a problem to them.
In my opinion those photographs seriously endangered the child's life. That is assuming, of course, that she was alive at the time. There are plenty of people who think that she may not have been.

I don't recall any unsolved kidnap/murder cases regarding Portuguese nationals in this country. I'm sure that, if such a case does exist, the British police will help wherever possible.

Perhaps the British family referred to by '!st time poster' were unaware of the alleged assault. That would account for not reporting it to the police. Anyway, it seems that they HAVE reported it now. I assume the Portuguese police will conduct a thorough investigation. Perhaps they could make the details known to the team on the McCann case.
