He claimed the devastated couple were responsible for Madeleine’s disappearance in 2007.

The pair initially took the case to court in ­Portugal and won, but then lost an appeal.

They lodged a fresh case at the European Court of Human Rights in 2017.

ECHR judges wrote to the Portuguese government and the McCanns asking for “observations” and if they would consider settling out of court.

The McCann legal team said they were willing to settle but Portugal refused their offer.

The judges will now give a verdict by the end of the year.
