I'm not going to speculate about how the questioning of the mother of missing child Madeleine McCann will develop. That's just the point. In recent years, we've seen a growth of trial by media that has resulted in false and life destroying accusations being levelled against innocent men like Colin Stagg, Tom Stephens and, perhaps, Robert Murat.

Legal protection for suspects, as well as defendants in cases of rape, until convicted, are necessary.
