Portuguesehomes release statement

FOLLOWING RECENT news reports and Robert Murat’s association with Portuguesehomes, the company would like to release the following statement:

“Mr Robert Murat does not work for Portuguese Homes, nor is he associated with the company in any way.

“Mr Murat joined the sales division at Portuguesehomes at the end of 2005 and was with the company for a three month trial period. He left the company at the end of 2005 and has had neither contact nor involvement with Portuguesehomes since this time.

“In a case of this magnitude it is of paramount importance that investigators follow every possible lead and it is our understanding that Mr. Murat is one of three individuals to be questioned by police in this current line of enquiry.

Peter Grogan, the Managing Director of Portuguesehomes, said: “The thoughts of all Portuguesehomes employees across the Algarve are with the McCann family at this very distressing time. We hope Madeleine will soon be back safe and well with her parents, brother and sister.”
