The Mail reports that an Internet campaign in Portugal is urging police to investigate the McCanns because the couple left their children alone in their holiday apartment on the fateful night little Madeleine went missing.
An article in Portugal's Sol magazine accused Madeleine's parents and the other families in their holiday group of constantly altering their version of events and suggests that they were a very strange group that never stayed with their children.
Gerry McCann said: The authorities have assured us they regard the criticisms as without foundation.
The family's spokesman Justine McGuinness said:
If they could turn back time there are things that they might have done differently, with the benefit of hindsight. But it is impossible to say whether, had there been an adult in the apartment at the time of the abduction, it would ahve stopped a predator.Meantime, I've attempted to answer a few of the comments on my previous post on this subject.
There are, sadly, several cases of children being taken by an adult with criminal intention while they have been very close by their parents.
