One thing seems very odd to me, if Portuguese and other posters can accept that this German man will be tried in Germany for murders he committed in Portugal, with the Portuguese and German police working in harmony for justice, why is it they cannot accept the same logic in the case of McCann? Now that is a question I would really like an answer to. ....... Why is there a perceived need to even refer to Rebelo (who cracked the Casa Pia case) as the Shelver. I will continue to believe that it was Portugal's duty to thoroughly investigate whether Maddie had indeed been abducted by a stranger and to that end, Rebelo stayed in UK to listen intently to the account of Jane Tanner and her supposed abductor sighting, having heard it he had no reason to further stay in UK. He, along with Leicester Police were satisfied this was not the work of any strangers to Madeleine - she did not unprotestingly get removed from her bed that night, she was never in it! The rest is down to Leicester Police - to deal with Leicester criminals including one David Payne who likes to arrange holidays where he can have access to lots of tiny little girls. Portugal only need to assume jurisdiction in this case if what the McCanns say is true and they have repeatedly challenged the McCanns, bring us your evidence and we will re-commence the search. They are not holding their breath waiting for any response from them. Maybe they can only wait for the fishermen..
