Madeleine McCann's parents deny 'pact of silence' accusation

Potuguese journalist raises old allegations

Wednesday, November 4, 2009

Gerry and Kate McCann's latest appeal for help over their missing daughter Maddie was overshadowed yesterday by some tough questions from a Portuguese journalist.

The 41-year-olds were asked about allegations made in a book by Goncalo Amaral, the detective formerly in charge of the case.

The pair from Rothley, Leicestershire, denied there was a pact of silence over what happened in Praia da Luz in May 2007.

Mr McCann said later: 'The place to have those discussions is in the judicial and legal environment.'
