 +__This was the supposed Final report (summary) of the Investigations given to the Portuguese Prosecutor.__ Three weeks later through political Interference ([[gordon_brown|Gordon Brown]] and [[jose_socrates|José Sócrates Carvalho Pinto de Sousa]]) the investigators team and prosecutor were dismissed and new people set in, who were not directly involved into the original investigations. On 2 October 2007, [[goncalo_amaral|Dr Amaral]] was removed from the investigation into Madeleine’s disappearance. The Portuguese judicial authorities then appointed a new investigation co-ordinator. He reported to the District Attorney (not the Attorney-General as stated on Wikipedia) for that region of Portugal, **Jose de Magalhaes e Menezes**. He issued a report on the investigation,​ signed off by **Deputy Attorney-General Joao Melchior Gomes**, which was made public in **July 2008**. ​
 +__A new report was written which finalized as follows:​__ ​
 +__On **page 4,649** his final statement:​__ //“I order…the filing of the papers concerning the suspects [[gerry_mccann|Gerald Patrick McCann]] and [[kate_mccann|Kate Marie Healy]] [the surname then used by Dr Kate McCann], as there is **no evidence that they committed any crime defined by Article 277.1** of the Code of Criminal Procedure”//​.
 +On **page 4648**, he declares: //“…it must be clearly understood that **this is not equivalent to final and irreversible closure** of the enquiry”//​.
 +On **page 4647** of the same report: //“No evidence was obtained which would enable the average person…to arrive at a clear and honest conclusion as to how the child was taken from the apartment (dead or alive, and if dead whether by negligent or wilful manslaughter)”.//​ On the same page, the District Attorney adds: **//“We do not have any grounds whatsoever for saying, with the necessary degree of certainty, exactly what crime(s) may have been committed against Madeleine McCann”//​**.
 +On **page 4643**, also **pages 4597-8**: //“Whilst it is an undeniable fact that Madeleine disappeared from [[apartement_5a|Apartment 5A]] in the [[ocean_club|Ocean Club]], the manner and **circumstances in which it happened are unclear**, despite the huge number of investigations,​ and the potential range of crimes suggested. **The potential range of crimes suggested** throughout the enquiry - including abduction for sexual purposes or other uses and accidental death and hiding of the body - **still stands**”//​.
 +On **page 4605**: //"The **possibility of abduction** was exhaustively investigated. **No ransom was ever requested, nor were there any sufficiently consistent clues found to support this theory**”//​.
 +(The McCanns rely on this report for their claim that they were //​‘cleared’//​. ​ See some more details on ->​[[http://​whathappenedtomadeleinemccann.blogspot.com/​2013/​08/​madeleine-mccann-have-her-parents-been_9354.html|Have her parents been ‘cleared’ of any involvement in her disappearance’?​]])
