Police are to question British expat Robert Murat over the disappearance of three-year-old Madeleine McCann in Portugal in 2007.

Reports from Portugal state that investigators working on the “Operation Grange” inquiry that was ordered by Prime Minister David Cameron in 2011 will speak to him as witness.

Murat, 41, who Scotland Yard reportedly identified as one of seven people they wanted to speak to, said his “conscience is clear”. He was first interviewed following the disappearance in 2007, and has said he was happy to speak to police again. He had his status as an arguido, or person of interest, removed in 2008.

The IT specialist, who lives in the Algarve, said investigators have yet to contact him and that his legal team has not told him of any plans to interview him. However, he insisted that if they were to approach him with further questions then he had no problem in speaking with them.

Interviews conducted by Portuguese investigators and supervised by officers from the Metropolitan Police have been put on temporary hold and are likely to resume at the beginning of 2015.
