Paedophile list hidden from the PJ

A dossier holding information about dozens of English sex predators that live in the Algarve can’t be used to protect the children

by Tânia Laranjo

An extensive dossier holding information about several dozen English paedophiles that reside in the Algarve was sent by the British authorities into Portugal within the investigation into the disappearance of Maddie McCann. It is now in the Court of Portimão, locked in the office of the prosecutor who headed the case, Magalhães e Menezes.

The General Attorney’s Office, led by Pinto Monteiro, accepted that said documentation was removed from the inquiry, at the British’ request, and was not even handed over to the police authorities for the investigation into other cases that may involve Portuguese children.
