Sophisticated police investigation - Portuguese style

'These cops framed my wife'

It could have been worse for Kate McCann. This is a photo of Leonor Silva after being interrogated by Portuguese police over another child abduction and murder, that of her nine year old daughter.

The police officer leading the McCann investigation is one of five officers investigated by Portugal’s Ministerio Publico. In June the Ministerio charged three police officers with torture, a fourth with omission of evidence and a fifth with falsification of documents. It did not reveal who had been charged with which offence.
