Blog Break


It's the time of year for our customary summer break, when we give our families undivided attention, enjoy our holiday season and catch up on all those tasks we keep putting off.

We will be keeping an eye on developments too and it seems timely to take a break now; to await the outcome of the visit of the British Crown Prosecution Service to Portugal in April and to see if the libel trial of Mr Amaral actually happens.

We hope it will all result in a clear-up, rather than a cover-up. Hope springs eternal, as the saying goes. And you never know, justice, true justice, may just render this blog useless.

We have taken the blog along to the point of almost a resolution to the case. We have exposed the plot and only the finer dust (and there is still much of it) remains to be cleaned. You know, the devil’s favorite playground: the details.

It seems that there are some pessimists who have already forecast that the UK authorities are determined to conclude that it was “an abductor” after all, one anonymous, mysterious and inconclusive abductor.

And no sign of Maddie.

First, it seems just a little too little of a difference for the almighty glorified and (ex-) reputable SY to make its difference from the “bungling” PJ.

You don’t see the difference? Yes, we understand why you don’t. That’s how brilliantly formatted you’ve been all this time.

You see, the only official version that we’re aware of is that the Portuguese Justice System could find no evidence parents involved in Maddie’s disappearance.

No talk of an abductor.

Maddie is gone… but the why is still open to speculation as you so well know.

Second, if getting an “abductor” to fit the part was easy, or even possible, don’t you think that would have been done long ago?

That’s what they’ve been trying to do for the last 6 years with very little success and a very fast eroding margin of manoeuvre.

There’s one thing that differentiates this case from all others: the millions of words written about it and that are publicly available.

The true White Hats have contributed out of their own good-will.

The “White Hats” have, unwittingly, contributed also, and decisively, due to their fierce engagement in the issue. These, remember, wanted just part of the truth to be outed and have the T9 punished for Maddie’s death.

So, they were absolutely truthful about anything that did NOT hinder their interests. And what they wanted to hide, they lied as much as any Black Hat. After all, we mustn’t forget, they are Black Hats. The sentence of an innocent man, Tony Bennett, is, as we said “blood” on their hands.

So do take away the clutter that these “White Hats” have spread in their own interests and you’ll have left a good chunk of pure, honest truth.

Lastly, the Black Hats. How useful they have been. Their counter-argumentation will be the biggest embarrassingly legacy of all time.

There’s simply too much information out there to find an adequate patsy. Simply impossible.

“Maddie – The Movie”, when it will be made, won’t be about the events that happened inside the apartment until the little girl died, but about all the circus that was mounted around her death. We believe that not much of the filming will be using PdL as scenario…

Police in UK can't afford another scandal blowing up after the latest uproar on trying to discredit Stephen Lawrence family campaign,  the use of undercover police in spying on protest groups and Plebgate.

There’s also some idle talk about Mr Amaral’s “strange” silence. We don’t find it strange at all. As far as we know, Mr Amaral owes no one any explanation about anything.

If there has to be an eventual explanation, it has to come from the Judicial System as to why there was no trial (if there isn’t to be one) or from the accusing side, the McCanns, as to why they dropped the charges (if they drop the charges).

Mr Amaral’s silence about the issue is not only justified as is very comprehensible. He has nothing to say, so, correctly, says nothing.

We wish our readers an enjoyable holiday break and thank those who have stayed with us in a quest for justice.

  2. The UK version don´t talk about an abductor?

    But the target seems AGAIN to be a paidos.

  3. The travel industry should do more to combat the threat from paedophiles, the press spokeswoman for the family of Madeleine McCann told the ITT conference.
    Justine McGuiness, giving her first ever public address on her experiences of managing the press campaign to find the missing five year old, said the sector should take the issue more seriously.
    She praised the operator Mark Warner from whose resort in Praia da Luz in the Algarve Madeleine went missing from six years ago for its reaction.
    But speaking about the travel industry in general she said she felt more should be done to counteract problems before incidents occur.
    “When you take people to safe places to have family holidays and there is a risk there then actually I think the travel industry should take it more seriously than it does.
    “Preparation is the key. I always said to clients prepare for the worst, the likelihood is it won’t happen but then at least you are prepared for it.”
    McGuiness said the rise of social media means firms have to react quicker than ever to any incident and that a speedy and effective response was likely to pay dividends.
    She said she was grateful the disappearance of Madeleine happened before the days of Twitter because the micro-blogging site has speeded up the flow of information.
    “We had a clear strategy. We wanted to change certain things so that if a similar case occurred the police response would be quicker. There was a public affairs strategy as well as a media relations.”
    McGuiness said she felt the Portuguese police did not understand the McCann family’s need to stay in Portugal while the hunt for Madeleine got underway following the disappearance.
    And she believed the police and the local authorities started to take the view that they wanted the McCanns to go home.
    “They felt if they went home this problem would go home with them. Of course you would want to know what happened to your daughter.
    “For some of the policemen, and they were all men, I do not think they really understood that. They wanted them to go home and started applying the pressure by briefing the Portuguese media and then the UK media.”
    And of Mark Warner’s response, McGuiness said: “They were prepared for dealing with the crisis. They did not know what crises may happen, but they were prepared.
    “That’s the real trick in terms of a corporate dealing with a crisis, is preparation. They did a really good job and were supportive of the McCanns and were really helpful.”
    Asked what she now believes happened to Madeleine, McGuiness said it was highly unlikely she was kidnapped to order as some theories suggested or just walked out of the apartment herself.
    But she said her experience of the case made her realise that many paedophiles appear to be upstanding members of communities not thought capable of carrying out that sort of crime.
    But she said often when the police find out what pornographic material they have half have material involving children under the age of 10 and 20% material involving under three year olds.
    McGuiness said she feared as more time passes the chance of finding Madeleine fades.
    “I hope it has a very positive outcome and that Madeleine is found. They are still looking for her but the longer than goes on the more likely it is that there won’t be a resolution.
    “My heart really goes out to Kate and Jerry [Madeleine’s parents], to go for six years without knowing what happened to your daughter really is brutal.”

  5. Não acredito que o Macgang alguma vez autorize um filme. Isso foi uma idéia dos tempos aureos em que choviam milhões de Euros num Fundo, sem eles mesmos saberem porquê. Estavam enebriados pela facilidade com que enganavam o "povão". Hoje, os tempos são outros...um filme era só uma porta aberta para a discussão que eles querem silenciar ou apagar.
    Infelizmente, não deverá haver filme. Se houvesse e tivesse o Mccaval, seria mais uma peça valiosa para a policia passar à lupa, não por revelar ou por confessar o que quer que seja, mas para perceber até onde uns pais, um grupo, uma entidade policial, um país, pode levar uma farsa. Falo dos ares da terra de " Sua Majestade" como é evidente.
    Nunca um caso queimou tanto a imagem da Inglaterra, embora eles à semelhança do Rei que ía nú, finjam ignorar.

  7. 3, is Mcguinness unimployed now?
    Some time, this characters get up from their shadows to show they still there, looking for free publicity.
    It is amazing, how all the Mccann's spoke persons manage to be so ridiculous.
    I can imagine, the travel companies doing the police job and checking all criminal records to advise their clients. After all, was not the UK police who failed to inform Portugal about the Paedos that travelled to the Algarve? At least, that was what the media reported at the time. Then, why asking the travels agency to do what should be a mandatory behavior for the police. Why are that spoke persons so affraid to annoy the British police now? And why Mcguinness abandonned the Mccann's as soon they touched UK soil? Was it because she believes a ghost abductor entered the flat, leaving no traces? NO, SHE WAS DESPERATE TO RUN OUT FROM A TROUBLE CASE WITH A VERY BAD SMELL. if not, read the letter the first UK ambassador sent to the British PM, reporting how the case seems to be different then the picture revealed by the Mccann's. The Ambassador was quiclkly replaced, but I believe, his letter still available somewhere, including the Internet.

  8. I would like to point out article about Justine Mc Guinness refers to Maddie as being 5, so a very old article. Why being revived now? A distraction!

  10. The idea of coming up with an abductor/paedo is just to show they're doing something while they're doing nothing at all, at least in investigating.
    Everyone knows what happened. What is being very difficult is to write the storyline.
    Now the CPS coming to Portugal has a totally different meaning IMHO: it shows that the best storyline to follow maybe the truth.
    Brooks and Coulson show that there aren't any untouchables.

  15. If a movie is indeed in the agenda, then I would cast an alert warning to the Hollywood actresses...be very careful to accept playing the role of Kate McCann (ghosh...just the thought of it gives me goosebumps!), be sure to have a water thight contract, be sure your work will get handsomely paid, even if your work will end up on the editing room floor, as it happened to your colleague, actress Lisa Canning who was supposed to play Kate M. in the Mockumentary, sorry, the McCann documentary, but for reasons never explained her scenes were entirely cut-out of the documentary, never saw the light of day!
    Oh, and whoever you are, the one that will be Kate M., you sure will have to be one hell of an actress, to convince the audiences when you do the "10pm visit" apartment scenes...and not only...

    To whoever is to play Jane Tanner, well, another hard acting job! Start training on how to make a big ROUND table with 6 or 8 SQUARE ones!

    To whoever will direct the movie, I hope your insurance covers a looong internement in a psychiatric facility...you'll end up with a nervous breakdown trying to shoot scenes that make sense out of the McCanns and friends version of events!

    I hope they will make a movie, oh how I do! I will love to see them all shoot themselves on both feet, it will be the comedy of the year! Or the tragedy...

    I wouldn't be ashamed of playing Kate McCann in the movie. The character won't be asked to do what it was asked in the Mockumentary.
    In a movie truthful to what happened I see many women who I would be ashamed of playing before Kate: Antonella Lazzeri, Silvia Baptista, Fenn, the young girl's mother, JW, Susan Hubbard, Gail Cooper, Quiz Mistress, all the fake white bloggers and posters and every woman that knew what really happened (guests, waitresses, receptionists, cleaners, lawyers, diplomats, politicians, etc) and still helped to keep the HOAX alive.
    Of the T9 women I wouldn't like to be cast the roles of Fiona or Dianne.
    The only McCann that I would really be ashamed of playing would be Philomena McCann.
    I am only talking roles for women...

    If told reveal the truth, they'll reveal it
    If told don't reveal the truth, they won't

    However as you say there's too much information to show that it isn't either mythical or inconclusive!

  23. Very interesting read this weekend and, apparently, absolutely unrelated to the Maddie Affair.

    I’m talking about the recent acquittal of two suspects, both pharmaceutical, from any responsibility in a medical accident that resulted in total or partial blindness of 6 people back in July 2009 which happened in Portugal’s biggest hospital, Stª Maria in Lisbon.

    To sum up the events, 6 people were injected an unknown substance into the eyes, as a pre-op procedure. The substance was supposed to be “Avastin”, as per the labels in the vials, but whatever it really was is still unknown as the various lab tests found it impossible to determine. It wasn’t “Avastin”.

    Probably what happened was that the vials were tragically mislabeled before they were taken into the operating room.

    That mistake cost the vision of 6 people that day.

    Will not get into the details of the case, nor provide an opinion of the sentence.

    What I want to highlight are the words spoken by the lawyer of one (or various) victim(s): “Those involved in the process should take a real deep look at their participation in this case and realize what really they have done”

    In question, as the Court reprimanded, was the way those involved in construing the accusation ACCEPTED WHATEVER WAS TOLD AND PROVIDED BY THE HOSPITAL AS FACT.

    Where have we seen such before?

    In particular, a physical registry given to the PJ by the Hospital: A PROCEDURE HANDBOOK.

    This Handbook was PROVED to have been forged by the Court.

    It apparently referred to rooms that weren’t supposed to exist at that date, named people that weren’t working in the hospital at the time and spoke of equipment that was still to be acquired.

    Where have we seen such before?

    An institution/establishment providing the authorities with fake documentation and that documentation being taken as FACT?

    One thing I’m willing to bet is that it wasn’t ONLY two suspects that got together and made up that fake Handbook. That it wasn’t only them that then (if they were even involved at all in the authorship of the Handbook) have convinced the Hospital to hand it over to the authorities.


    Where have we seen such before?

    Isn't this so TAPAS RESERVATION SHEETS?

    And are we talking about a conspiracy, or a cover-up?

    Hmmm let me think… I bet the Black Hats would love to say that it’s just another conspiraloonacy on our part…

  26. The Mark Warner Arrivals list is very interesting also.

    The ages of the babies listed are very specific: 14; 19; 18; 11; 17; 8; 13; 7 and 11 months, even though there's no booking option to enable this.

    If I try to book a holiday through MW, the options are: 18+ years; 12-17 years; 2-11 years and 0-1 year.

    All other major travel companies have SIMILAR options, but none are specific to the exact month ON THE DAY OF ARRIVAL.

    If the data imput was done at the time of arrival, then why, I wonder, did Dianne Webster receive the apartment keys from the driver?

  28. mc,

    Maddie, due to many factors none of which having to do with the little girl, has become a timeless household name.

    The issue may lay silent for a while but it will surface time and time again. With most frequency than most they made it be part of a tragedy that is unfortunately recurrent: that of missing children.

    So whenever a child disappears or whenever a person returns home after captivity, Maddie's name will pop up in everyone's mind...

    And people will ask how the very reputable Scotland Yard hasn't been able to go any further than a vague 195 new leads and 20 people of interest in PdL.

    Maddie will never be forgotten.

    I'll give you another practical example: the movie. Anyone trying to pick up the issue and write a script will drop it like a hot potatoe.

    Word will get around that Maddie is an issue not to be touched. But, as I said, Maddie's name will pop up time and time again.

    And every time that will happen, what will people do? Those who know, which are many, will just look down on the floor in embarrassment.

    And, mc, if they persist in not having the issue solved by the time we come back from holidays, we'll just have to continue writing won't we?

  29. The Water Margin

    The ancient sages said, "do not despise the snake for having no horns, for who is to say it will not become a dragon?".

    So may one just man become an army.

    Nearly a thousand years ago in ancient China, at the time of the Sung dynasty, there was a cruel and corrupt government. These men riding are outlaws - heroes - who have been driven to live in the Water Margins of Liang Shan Po, far to the south of the capital city.

    Each fights tyranny with a price on his head, in a world very different from our own. The story starts in legend even then - for our heroes, it was said, were perhaps the souls reborn of other, earlier knights...

  39. Latest update on Madeleine McCann case

    04 July 2013
    Incident Date

    03/05/2007
    Incident Location

    Praia da Luz , Portugal
    Description

    Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Service conducting the investigative review into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann have now moved to an investigative stage of the inquiry.

    Over the past two years the review, whilst not complete, has been in a unique position having drawn together material from the UK, Portugal and private investigators from seven different companies.

    This process has been complex and issues such as translation of material have presented particular challenges. To date some 30,500 documents have entered into the process which has generated in excess of 3,800 actions. The actions that we have completed have generated new findings and new witness evidence.

    Our review has sought to prioritise the material, ensuring we are doing everything possible to understand what happened to Madeleine. In the absence of any clear evidence to the contrary we maintain our belief that Madeleine may still be alive.

    The MPS has conducted sixteen visits to Portugal and we have met and shared our findings with key members of both the Policia Judiciaria and Judicial Authorities. Our relationship is positive and we are grateful for the co-operation we have received thus far.

    We are satisfied that our review has now progressed to a position where we have identified 38 persons of interest. These individuals are from a number of European countries and we are now at an advanced stage of dialogue with each country.

    Over the coming months we will be conducting assertive enquiries, with the assistance of host countries to establish more information about the individuals concerned and any potential involvement.

    Twelve of the persons of interest are UK Nationals who we believe were in Portugal at the time Madeleine went missing.

    Officers, under Operation Grange, have formally requested the Crown Prosecution Service submit an International Letter of Request to the Portuguese Authorities seeking assistance in obtaining evidence relating to lines of enquiry they wish to pursue. This has been done with the full support of the UK Government.

  40. (cont.)

    The MPS has requested, in accordance with accepted Mutual Assistance practice, that a small number of UK officers are present in Portugal whilst the enquiries are undertaken.

    The MPS will be as open as our operational priorities allow but in the context of this complex operating environment we appeal for media restraint. There is a real risk that a lack of restraint could serve to seriously undermine our ability to progress.

    Detective Chief Inspector Andy Redwood, heading Operation Grange said today:

    "We, and the Portuguese authorities, remain completely committed to finding out what happened to Madeleine, and everything we do is utterly focused on her best interests.

    "We continue to believe that there is a possibility that Madeleine is alive.

    "It is a positive step in our hunt for Madeleine that our understanding of the evidence has enabled us to shift from review to investigation.

    "We have identified 38 persons of interest from a number of European countries. Twelve of those people are UK Nationals who we believe were in Portugal at the time Madeleine disappeared.

    "Our working relationship with the Portuguese police is positive and now that we have moved to investigation we are requesting further specific assistance through normal judicial routes.

    "We remain in close contact with Kate and Gerry McCann and they are updated on our current position.

    "We continue to appeal for information. If you were at the resort of Praia da Luz between 28 April and 3 May 2007, either on holiday or in residence in the resort during this period, particularly in the vicinity of the Ocean Club, and you have not been spoken to by police either here or in Portugal then please call us on 0800 0961011 if you are within the UK.

    "The number for non-UK residents is +44 2071580 126. Alternatively if you do not want to speak to us directly you can contact Crimestoppers on0800 555 111.”

    Polícia inglesa quer interrogar portugueses sobre desaparecimento de Maddie McCann

    Um porta-voz da Polícia Metropolitana, que iniciou uma revisão do caso no ano passado, disse hoje à agência Lusa que "há portugueses e britânicos" entre as 38 pessoas identificadas como "de interesse" para os investigadores.

    Destes, 12 são britânicos e os restantes de cinco países diferentes, incluindo Portugal, adiantou a mesma fonte, afirmando que, por enquanto, não serão dados mais pormenores.

    Um comunicado emitido pela Scotland Yard refere que está "num estado avançado de diálogo" com as respetivas autoridades nacionais das pessoas em causa para obter informação.

    Lê-se ainda que os responsáveis pela investigação, intitulada "Operação Grange", pediram "formalmente" à Procuradoria da Coroa [homóloga britânica do Ministério Público português] para que submeta uma Rogatória Internacional às autoridades portuguesas a pedir ajuda na obtenção dos depoimentos relativos às linhas de inquérito que desejam seguir.

    "Isto foi feito com o apoio total do Governo britânico", acrescenta o comunicado.

    Para realizar a investigação, a Polícia Metropolitana britânica quer ter um "pequeno número" de agentes em Portugal, no âmbito da prática de Assistência Mútua.

    A imprensa britânica já tinha avançado há várias semanas a hipótese de a Scotland Yard abrir a sua própria investigação ao caso, no sequimento da revisão aberta em 2011 por intervenção do primeiro-ministro, David Cameron.

    Na altura, a polícia confirmou que uma delegação de responsáveis superiores da Procuradoria da Coroa e de detetives visitou Portugal em meados de abril para discutir os próximos passos a dar com as autoridades portuguesas.

    Madeleine McCann desapareceu poucos dias antes de fazer quatro anos, a 03 de maio de 2007, do quarto onde dormia juntamente com os dois irmãos gémeos, mais novos, num apartamento de um aldeamento turístico na Praia da Luz, no Algarve.

    Os pais e um outro britânico, Robert Murat, foram constituídos arguidos pelas autoridades judiciais portuguesas em julho de 2007, mas a 21 de julho de 2008, a Procuradoria Geral da República determinou o arquivamento das suspeitas, o que ditou o fim das investigações.

    Os pais, Kate e Gerry McCann, mantém há anos uma campanha para encontrar a criança e defendem publicamente a reabertura do processo.

    No ano passado foi constituída uma equipa na Scotland Yard para rever o caso, a pedido do primeiro-ministro, David Cameron, cujo trabalho de análise de mais de 40 mil pistas e documentos custou, segundo a imprensa local, mais de dois milhões de libras (2,34 milhões de euros).

    Novas pistas e novas testemunhas no caso Maddie

    Polícia britânica acredita que Madeleine ainda pode estar viva. E deu uma passo na investigação que justifica a passagem à fase de inquérito.

    15:10 Quinta feira, 4 de julho de 2013 Última atualização há 55 minutos

    A Metropolitan Police disse que irá investigar 38 "pessoas de interesse" no caso do desaparecimento da jovem britânica Madeleine McCann, depois de ter revisto pistas do Reino Unido, de Portugal e de sete empresas de investigadores privados.

    O processo do caso tem mais de 30 mil documentos, que estiveram a ser lidos "ao pormenor" pelos agentes, com aparente sucesso. "As ações que completámos geraram novas pistas e novas testemunhas", revelaram, em comunicado divulgado hoje.

    A Metropolitan Police, que diz "acreditar que Madeleine ainda possa estar viva", esteve em Portugal dezenas de vezes, nas quais se reuniu com a Polícia Judiciária, com quem "a relação é positiva" e a quem agradecem "a colaboração".

    As autoridades britânicas revelam que as 38 pessoas de interesse provêm de vários países europeus, especificando apenas que 12 delas são cidadãs do Reino Unido que estariam no Algarve à altura do desaparecimento da filha de Kate e Gerry McCann.
    "Nós e as autoridades portuguesas continuamos completamente focados"

    "Nós e as autoridades portuguesas continuamos completamente focados em descobrir o que aconteceu a Madeleine e tudo o que fazemos é a pensar no melhor interesse dela", disse o chefe inspector Andy Redwood. "Continuamos a acreditar que há uma possibilidade de Madeleine estar viva".

    "Estamos sempre em contacto com Kate e Gerry McCann e eles são sempre informados de novos desenvolvimentos", concluiu.

    Madeleine McCann desapareceu na noite de 3 de maio de 2007 de um apartamento na Praia da Luz, no Algarve, onde tinha sido deixada apenas com os seus dois irmãos pelos pais.

  46. A PSP deteve um casal luso-italiano procurado pela justiça francesa e italiana, conhecido das autoridades por tentar extorquir dinheiro aos pais de Madeleine McCann em troca de informações sobre o paradeiro da filha.

    O italiano, de 67 anos, e a portuguesa, de 60, foram detidos na quarta-feira em Cascais e sob eles recaem três mandados de detenção europeus para extradição para França e Itália, segundo disse à Lusa fonte policial.

    O casal é conhecido das autoridades policiais por ter tentado receber o dinheiro que os pais da menina inglesa que desapareceu no Algarve em 2007 ofereciam a quem desse pistas sobre o seu paradeiro.

    De acordo com a fonte policial, o casal é procurado pelas autoridades francesas por alegadamente estar envolvido num esquema de associação criminosa para conspiração para assassinar um juiz francês que condenou o casal a 18 meses de prisão por maus-tratos à filha, pena que efectivamente cumpriram.

    O casal vivia "pelo menos desde Janeiro, na zona do Estoril", sob identidade falsa e, de acordo com a fonte, preparava-se para mudar de local, como tinham
    feito há quatro anos, quando deixaram o Algarve. Os dois filhos do italiano e da portuguesa, menores de idade, encontravam-se na residência do Estoril e foram entregues a casas de acolhimento para jovens.

    Os detidos vão ser presentes, esta quinta-feira, a tribunal para primeiro interrogatório judicial.

    Spanish Court orders Italian Danilo Chemello to be freed


    The Spanish Court of San Roque ordered Italian citizen Danillo Chemello, accused of an extortion attempt against Madeleine's parents, to be freed, according to French blog SOS Madeleine. Portuguese police was just informed of the decision of the Spanish Court to drop to case, writes SOS Madeleine, quoting a source close to the investigation. The decision was taken last Friday, but Danilo Chemello is still in jail, waiting for the annulment of the detention order issued by “Audiencia Nacional”, the Spanish Supreme Court, because of the extradition request against him, from French authorities. Danilo Chemello and is Portuguese wife, Aurora Vaz Pereira, were arrested on June 28, after an alleged attempt to extort money from McCann couple. The Italian is wanted by French Police because of a conspiracy to kill a judge.

    «A execução do pedido terá de ser integralmente assegurada pelas autoridades portuguesas, judiciárias ou policiais, como autoridades soberanas que são. As autoridades britânicas não poderão actuar, por si só, em Portugal», refere a PGR.
    Acrescenta-se que, caso «seja permitida a sua deslocação a Portugal para coadjuvarem as autoridades portuguesas na execução do já mencionado pedido de auxílio judiciário mútuo, participação efectuada a título de coadjuvação», a polícia britânica «não poderá dirigir qualquer interrogatório nem efectuar qualquer diligência, de motu próprio, em Portugal».

  62. Textusa and team, you are supposed to be on a summer break at the moment! Nevertheless thank you for accepting comments.

    Speaking of vacations and much needed intervals of rest and relaxation, there's a lovely resort in the Algarve and it comes highly recommended by the delightful actress, Charlotte Pennington.

    The accommodation looks quite splendid, and the hospitality second to none, even champagne on ice in the room is served, no wonder Charlotte felt the need to thank the Oceanicogroup personally; albeit through the means of social media.

    The owners of the group seem to do such a fantastic job, and I can thoroughly understand that such a hard working person as CP would fully appreciate it. Considering that the brilliant actress and May 2007 nanny even starts work on the very day she flies in from the UK to Portugal.

    What a gal!

    It's just a pity that the other holiday complex, owned by the same company, Estrela da Luz, wiped the crucial piece of footage that Snr. Amaral has spoken of more than once.

    What a shame that is, that one vital nugget of evidence would have come in very handy in the early days of the investigation.

    Such an unfortunate thing to happen.

    Oh, I almost forgot to mention for the golf lovers amongst us; there's also an amazing golf club attached called the Millennium, simply marvellous.

    Back to reality, enjoy your break and don't forget we will still need and look forward to our next injection of Textusa when the time is right.

    Have a great summer, and farewell till next time.

    Caso Maddie: Scotland Yard vai interrogar 38 pessoas de interesse

    Detido no Estoril casal procurado a nível internacional, que tentou extorquir os McCann.

    A Scotland Yard vai ouvir, nos próximos meses, em vários países da Europa, 38 potenciais suspeitos de estarem envolvidos no desaparecimento de Madeleine McCann, na Praia da Luz, Algarve, a 3 de maio de 2007. Um anúncio feito ontem, no mesmo dia em que a PSP deteve no Estoril um casal procurado a nível internacional. O italiano Danilo Chemello e a mulher, Aurora Pereira Vaz, ficaram conhecidos por um mês – após o desaparecimento de Maddie terão tentado extorquir quatro milhões de euros a Gerry e Kate, dizendo saberem onde estava a filha do casal britânico.

    Depois de 16 visitas a Portugal, num processo com 30 500 documentos e 3800 diligências, a Scotland Yard diz, após revisto o caso, ter encontrado novas pistas. Doze das 38 pessoas que vão ser ouvidas são de nacionalidade inglesa e estavam em Portugal na altura em que Maddie desapareceu.

    Era numa casa alugada no Estoril, Cascais, que o italiano Danilo, de 67 anos, e a mulher, Aurora, de 60, viviam escondidos da justiça italiana e francesa. Já com várias condenações e acusações no historial – conspiração para matar um juiz, tráfico ilegal de crianças, maus tratos a menores, tráfico de droga e extorsão, no caso Maddie –, o casal vivia com dois filhos, um rapaz de 15 anos e uma rapariga de 14, sob identidade falsa, desde janeiro, no Estoril.

    Uma denúncia permitiu à PSP intercetar o casal junto a casa, acabando por comprovar que sobre eles recaíam três mandados de detenção europeus. Com os filhos entregues a instituições de acolhimento, Danilo e Aurora foram presentes ao Tribunal da Relação de Lisboa. O CM captou o momento em que Danilo Chemello foi levado da esquadra do Estoril por elementos da investigação criminal da PSP até ao Tribunal.

    Irish couple could hold the key to solving Madeleine McCann case

    Luke Byrne – 05 July 2013

    AN Irish couple could hold key evidence in a fresh investigation launched into the disappearance of British child Madeleine McCann.

    A two-year review of the case documents by British detectives has been upgraded to a full investigation into the youngster's unexplained disappearance.

    The review by Scotland Yard, nicknamed 'Operation Grange', was ordered by British Prime Minister David Cameron and funded by the country's Home Office.

    It has identified 38 "people of interest" from a number of European countries, including 12 from the UK.

    Evidence provided at the time by members of the Smith family, from Maple Drive, Drogheda, Co Louth, was considered credible by the review officers.

    Martin Smith and his wife Mary revealed to investigators how they saw a man carrying a young child through the streets of Praia da Luz in Portugal on the night Madeleine went missing.

    She disappeared on May 3, 2007, from her family's apartment on the Algarve.

    The Smith family told police how they had left Kelly's Bar in the resort at around 10pm

    They then passed a man walking down the middle of the street who was carrying a girl aged about three to four years old.

    It was claimed that the child's head was lying against the man's left shoulder and her arms were hanging down alongside her body.

    Madeleine was almost four when she was reported missing by parents Gerry and Kate McCann.

    The Smiths returned home the day after the incident and it was only after they had seen the media reports of Madeleine's disappearance that they noted the encounter's significance. They later travelled back to Portugal to give police a statement.

    So far, the review team has examined more than 30,000 documents generating almost 4,000 fresh lines of inquiry, but still have one-third of the information to examine.

    Good to see the Smith sighting mentioned again in the media! But sadly, NO mention of Mr. Martin Smith's 60-80% conviction that the stroller was Gerry:

    "I would be 60-80% sure that it was Gerard McCann that I met that night carrying a child."

  68. Cameron on the news this morning about the investigation was very non committal and all he said was the investigation was looking for a resolution NOT they are hopeful or any nearer finding a missing child,. The words speak volumes, not one person has stated the aim now is to get Maddie back home. It wouldn’t make sense to alert anyone if the investigation was looking for a missing child.
    There seems to be a lot of pessimism about a whitewash but the two top bods from the CPS didn’t go to Portugal for a jolly to deliver a letter so something really big is happening.

    KATE and Gerry McCann received a boost from PM David Cameron in their bid to re-launch the search for their abducted daughter Madeleine.

    The couple called on the Prime Minister to press for a full independent and transparent review by the Portuguese and British authorities into Madeleine’s case.

    They made their plea in an open letter delivered to Number Ten Downing Street on their behalf by The Sun last night.

    Today Downing Street said the Government was looking at how it could help.

    The Prime Minister’s spokesman said: “We are considering what they have said and seeing if there is anything more we can do.”

    “We are thinking about what we can do to help.”

    KATE and Gerry McCann in fresh appeal for missing Maddie

    Speaking at the launch of Kate's new book about the family's ordeal, Gerry referred to the death of Mr Cameron’s severely disabled six-year-old son Ivan two years ago.

    He said: "Of course he’s suffered his own loss, and I’m sure he is a loving father, so he will understand what we’ve gone through.”

    But he disclosed his frustration at the lack of progress since he and his wife first asked for a full cold case review in 2009.

    Gerry added: “We really have come to the end of our tether. We want to see action from the Government, not rhetoric."

    Kate said: “When you’re in a position such as the Prime Minister, you have a responsibility. If you’re not willing to work for a child, you have to ask, ’who are you working for’?"

    In the McCanns' moving letter they recognised Mr Cameron as a “devoted” father and family man who knows the importance of children

    http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/3575748/Kate-and-Gerry-McCann-today-call-on-David-Cameron-to-re-launch-the-search-for-Maddie.html

    McCanns' letter to David Cameron:

    Dear Prime Minister

    As a devoted father and family man, you know the importance of children. Our beloved eldest child, Madeleine, was abducted from Praia da Luz, Portugal, four years ago. Since then, we have devoted all our energies to ensuring her safe return.

    Today we are asking you – and the British and Portuguese governments – to help find Madeleine and bring her back to her loving family.

    We live in hope that Madeleine will be found alive and returned to us. One call might be all that is needed to lead to Madeleine and her abductor.

    To this end, we are seeking a joint INDEPENDENT, TRANSPARENT and COMPREHENSIVE review of ALL information held in relation to Madeleine’s disappearance. Thus far, there has been NO formal review of the material held by the police authorities – which is routine practice in most major unsolved crimes.

    It is not right that a young vulnerable British citizen has essentially been given up on. This remains an unsolved case of a missing child. Children are our most precious gift.

    Please don’t give up on Madeleine.

    Kate & Gerry McCann



    myView
    By ANTONIO PINTO, Portuguese legal expert

    I DO not think it is a bad thing if Madeleine’s case is reopened by other prosecutors and other investigators to scrutinise for possible shortcomings in the existing investigation.

    It seems reasonable to do so because it is very strange that a girl is missing and that nothing is done. The problem for the Portuguese police is that, as the law stands, it does not provide for the re-opening of the case without new evidence.

    But although there is no provision in the law, the law does not outlaw it — so it would seem reasonable that this could happen.

    The couple called on the Prime Minister to press for a full independent and transparent review by the Portuguese and British authorities into Madeleine’s case.

    They made their plea in an open letter delivered to Number Ten Downing Street on their behalf by The Sun last night.

    Kate said: “When you’re in a position such as the Prime Minister, you have a responsibility. If you’re not willing to work for a child, you have to ask, ’who are you working for’?"

    In the McCanns' moving letter they recognised Mr Cameron as a “devoted” father and family man who knows the importance of children.

    They pleaded with the Prime Minister to help bring Madeleine back where she belongs — to her loving family. After years of failed police investigations and fruitless appeals to politicians for help, a proper review of information could, the pair believe, provide the key to finding their precious little girl.

    Today is Madeleine’s eighth birthday, but she has been missing for more than four years since she was abducted from a Portuguese holiday apartment in May, 2007.

    Kate, 43, told The Sun yesterday: “I hope Mr Cameron will take responsibility for one of his most vulnerable citizens.

    “Madeleine is not disposable. She should not be dismissed and brushed aside as ‘just one child from just one family’.

    “She’s a British child, she’s still missing, and she matters.”

    The Sun today throws its weight behind the family’s efforts with the start of a petition, above, for readers to sign. It urges the British and Portuguese authorities to co-operate and conduct an independent and transparent review of all information in relation to the disappearance.

    It could be conducted by senior legal figures, criminologists and senior police from each country, or even by international police organisation Interpol, which hosts case reviews.

    Kate, whose book Madeleine has been serialised all week in Britain’s favourite newspaper, added: “We’re very grateful for this campaign push, and especially to the general public who we are hoping will get behind us in this.

    “We need their help as our own efforts don’t seem to be working. We don’t seem to be making any progress with the Government on our own.”

    Kate added: “We hope David Cameron will show he cares about children — about Madeleine, about one of his citizens, and demonstrates this not just with words but with actions.

    “We hope he and his Government will approach their counterparts in Portugal and broach, with intent to achieve, our request for a review. And that co-operation will be forthcoming — something I’d expect from belonging to a European ‘Union’.”

    The original Portuguese police inquiry failed to find any trace of Madeleine or her abductor — and, after initial assistance from British police, the family have had little contact in the past year and are simply told: “It’s a Portuguese investigation.”

    In fact, NO law enforcement agency is now actively searching for Madeleine. The family’s own investigators are still working, but they do not have access to masses of material held by police authorities.

    There has been no formal review of the inquiry — a process which could unearth a key piece of the jigsaw.

    The McCanns’ attempts to get political support for the search have so far got nowhere. Ex-PM Gordon Brown was supportive and understanding when Gerry spoke with him by phone in May, 2007 — but not much changed.

    Meetings followed with a series of figures, including successive Home Secretaries Jacqui Smith, Alan Johnson and Theresa May.

    Early last year the McCanns were told a “scoping” exercise was being carried out within the Home Office to assess the feasibility of an independent review. But they were not told what conclusion it had reached.

    Leicestershire Police, the McCanns’ local force in Rothley, are the liaison between the UK and the Portuguese authorities on the probe.

    The force holds detailed files from UK inquiries. Most have not been shown to Kate and Gerry.

    Now the couple are pinning their hopes on the Prime Minister.

    Gerry, 42, said: “There has been no formal review of the material held by the police authorities, which is routine practice in most countries and especially when a key piece of the jigsaw may have been overlooked.

    “We need more of a co-ordinated response. A review could be crucial. One call may be all we need to find Madeleine and whoever took her.”

    After The Sun delivered the McCanns’ letter to No10 last night, the PM’s spokeswoman said: “The Prime Minister met Kate and Gerry McCann while Leader of the Opposition, and he has followed their plight very closely.

    “He and the Home Secretary want to make sure the Government does all it can to help them.”

  74. This is latest The Sun news on Maddie:

    We could find Maddie alive — say British cops who have leads on 12 UK suspects

    By KAREN MORRISON
    Published: 04th July 2013

    BRITISH cops say they have genuinely new leads and could find Madeleine McCann alive.

    Scotland Yard have identified 38 people of interest including 12 UK nationals following a two-year review of evidence in the case.

    None of the 38 people identified are known to the McCanns.

    Detective Chief Inspector Andy Redwood said his team has carried out new witness interviews and was in a “unique position” in analysing information from police in Portugal and the UK, as well as seven private detective firms.

    He said: “That has given us the ability to see this case with fresh eyes, and through that bring out new, genuinely new, lines of inquiry. And I’m hopeful when we pursue those lines of inquiry that we will be able to bring some sort of resolution.

    “Whether we will be able to solve it is a different issue, but I hope that we will be able to have the ability to move the investigation on.

    “I believe critically that this is an important moment for Madeleine. It is the culmination of that unique piece of work and it is a great opportunity which we intend to exploit to the full.”

    Madeleine, then aged three, went missing from a holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in Portugal’s Algarve on May 3 2007, as her parents Kate and Gerry dined at a nearby tapas restaurant with friends.

    The Portuguese investigation is officially closed but authorities there are backing the Scotland Yard inquiry and officers from both countries will work together in pursuing new leads.

    A team of 37 Met police officers and staff are working on the case, and they are sending a formal letter of request to Portuguese authorities for help.

    Spokesman for the McCanns Clarence Mitchell said: “Kate and Gerry warmly welcome this shift in the Metropolitan Police emphasis. They see it as a huge step forward in establishing what happened and hope that it will lead to bringing to justice whoever was responsible for Madeleine’s abduction.”
    The 12 British persons of interest were in Portugal at the time Madeleine vanished, and are currently thought to be in Portugal or the UK.

    The remainder are believed to be in these countries or three other unnamed European nations.

  76. Murat could have known about these recent revalation by SY concerning the investigation and new leads and that prompted him to state that the case should be re-opened. This all seems very odd especially when SY make a point of saying the parents nor the tapas group are amongst the 38 new suspects how do they know the parents are innocent what proof have they got that the tapas or mccanns were not involved in maddies disappearance there is no proof of their abductor and to say that she could still be alive after 6 years is beyond belief.
    What about the sniffer dogs evidence of cadaver in the apartment or Kate refusing to answer the pj questions and if the government are spending so many millions of tax payers money why do the mccanns still need to ask for donations for their private bank account fraudulent fund to find madeline surely SY are doing all the searching and why do greedy kate and gerry still need to ask for money? Finally why are no comments ever allowed on the online mccann (fairy)stories? Thank you Textusa for giving us a voice.

  77. SY and Andy Redwood make me so angry because how can they say the parents are not suspects why do they believe the Mccans version of events about an abductor that nobody else saw. Their friends statements are all conflicting, none of them helped with the reconstruction why have SY taken the word of these parents as fact when so much suspiction surrounds them.

  84. Nowhere is the SY statement does it say who the suspects are, or aren't. It doesn't say the parents or their friends are exonerated. But the clutter machine creates a blizzard of confusion and half-baked stories in order to sell newspapers. The amount of ignorance about the case is astonishing and depressing. The BH has people at each others throats in order to try and hide the truth. UK newspapers are now resorting to their typical xenophobic nonsense. But the truth lies there - still waiting.

  85. I don't understand all this speculation! For me it's very SIMPLE: Scotalnd Yard now has to produce some sort of result!
    If it was decided that way it's because they already know what the result will be. It can be a whitewash like the PJ's investigation ended up to be or it can be to charge the right people.
    We will just have to wait and see. To say the result will be this or that is pure speculation. What is important is that a result is coming.

    Do you really believe 'a result is coming'?

    I hope you're correct, of course. It's what we all want. But I have to say you sound far more confident than Scotland Yard's finest plods on the issue of reaching a definitive 'result'.

    Check the wording of Redwood's statement. He speaks of 'coming to some kind of conclusion'. Eh? What the hell does that mean!? Doesn't sound much like a confident conviction to me.

    What people are concerned about is that this very expensive investigation will turn out to be just another smoke-screen. - a means of 'moving on' as it were. And sving the reputations of some big hitters who foolishly backed the McCanns from the off - including some politicians I once admired for their integrity.

    Never underestimate the power of embarrassment, that's what I say. Especially when egos and careers are involved.

  88. Anon #86,

    There's no doubt in my mind that now there HAS to be a result! Remember that there was a time when it was said that the Review's conclusion could not be made public. I think this was during late 2011 but I'm not sure. I do remember that it was said that it could not be made public. Now we will have a result. Might not be a satisfactory one but it will be a public conclusion! SY will have to tell us what conclusions they will have reached. I see no other option!
    About what conclusions I don't know and it all depends on how much SY or who is giving it orders want the truth to surface.
    Bit then we can discuss about whatever dispatch will have the SY Investigation as much as we've discussed all these years the dispatch for the PJ Investigation can't we?

    ReplyDelete
  89. anon @ 87
    Yes, but speculation of an expensive cover-up is inevitable. Particularly when we have SY declaring 38 new suspects, and that they are keepimg 'Kate and Gerry' informed; that they believe Madeleine may be alive; that tourists should continue to look for her etc. whilst back in Portugal we have a PJ detective describing the investigation as 'meaningless political bullshit.'Which as far as I can see sums it up perfectly. But more importantly such conradictions appear to blow away any idea that there is 'close co-operation' between the two forces. IMO Any meaningful 'result' can only come from such co-operation with Portugal, and this doesn't appear to be the case. I may be wrong, and the police are closing in and playing a delicate game of cat and mouse. Unfortunately what I've witnessed in this and other cases leads me to believe such guile and Shirlock is way beyond this lot. In the meantime it's natural to speculate. Keeps us sane.

    Something I meant to querie, but didn't. What do you mean by the PJ investigation being 'a whitewash'?

    The original investigation came, to a definitive conclusion - you can read it online - the official case files, basically: the investigation believes Madeleine died in apartment 5A - an accidental death, and the parents were responsible for concealement of the body. The Case suspended, awaiting fresh evidence. I've just re-checked the files - this official police 'result' is still there for anyone who's interested to read and consider. I'm intrigued by your interpretation of 'whitewash' (ie cover-up).

    I didn't say that the PJ Investigation was a whitewash. I said that it ended up being one. The archival dispatch made it to be a real whitewash.
    We know the work done by the PJ wasn't in any way done with that intention and the conclusions of the investigation point clearly to the death of Maddie in the apartment. But the common citizen hasn't read the files and what he sees is that whoever wrote the dispatch read it and came to the conclusion that the whole thing should be a whitewash.
    The same might happen with the SY Investigation. It might be done with the same competence as the PJ Investigation but if "someone" decides that it is to end up a whitewash then that's what it will be.
    Doubt very much that SY will have the courage the PJ had in making its investigation public.

    Britain has not yet requested Portuguese help in its new inquiry into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.[/size]
    Scotland Yard said a week ago that it was beginning a ground-breaking investigation and would have a team of detectives based on the Algarve, from where Madeleine went missing while on holiday six years ago.
    Senior Metropolitan Police officers said they wanted to trace 38 potential suspects across five countries, had new lines of inquiry to pursue and new witness evidence to develop. Classifying the case as a criminal investigation, the Met said, would give its detectives “teeth” to interview witnesses and suspects, search properties and other locations and, if necessary, make arrests.
    But seven days later the international Letter of Request necessary to start the Europe-wide inquiry has not left London and the Portuguese authorities are said to be surprised by the lack of progress. The Crown Prosecution Service, which must deliver the letter to the Portuguese judicial authorities, said its officials were still drawing up the complex legal document.
    Prosecutors are understood to have received very little notice of Scotland Yard’s decision last week to publicise its shift from a review of the case to a full investigation. International criminal investigations in Europe are governed by two treaties: the 1959 European Convention on Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters, and the Convention on Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters between EU States of 2000.
    The conventions set out the accepted procedures for exchange of legal papers, holding hearings by videolink, the operation of joint investigation teams and the control of undercover officers, phone taps and interception of e-mail and other communications.
    Madeleine was almost four when she disappeared from her family’s holiday apartment in Praia de Luz in May 2007. She had been asleep in the apartment with her younger twin siblings while her parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, dined with friends nearby.
    The original Portuguese police inquiry was inconclusive and was shelved in 2008. It cannot be re-opened unless there is significant new evidence that reaches a threshold set down by Portuguese law.
    David Cameron ordered the Met to review the case in 2011 and a team was set up to examine documents gathered by Portuguese police, British agencies and private detectives hired by the McCann family. The discovery of new leads during that review convinced the Met there was a chance of solving the case.
    Andy Redwood, the Detective Chief Inspector who is leading the inquiry, Operation Grange, said last week: “It is a positive step in our hunt for Madeleine that our understanding of the evidence has enabled us to shift from review to investigation.”
    Despite 16 visits by British detectives to Portugal in the past two years, Lisbon insisted that “the British authorities cannot act on their own in Portugal”.
    The Attorney-General’s office added that British police “will not be able to direct any interrogation or effect any investigation, on their own account, in Portugal”.
    A spokesman for the CPS said: “Any legal communication between different jurisdictions requires extremely careful correspondence, including appropriate translations. We are in liaison with the Portuguese authorities, and will send the formal Letter of Request as soon as possible.”

    THE parents of Madeleine McCann say they have “absolute faith” in the new investigation into their missing daughter despite reports the Europe-wide inquiry is already getting bogged down in red tape

    Police believe Madeleine may still be alive

    Eight days after Scotland Yard announced that officers were ­moving from review stage of the case to a full-blown investigation, Kate and Gerry McCann remain hopeful of a breakthrough.
    Their declaration came after it was revealed that a vital Letter of Request, which must be sent to the Portuguese authorities, has still not been delivered.
    Without it, aspects of the investigation could be delayed due to lack of formal approval from the relevant authorities there.
    Last night the Crown Prosecution Service, which is responsible for delivering the letter to the Portuguese judicial bodies, said its officials were still drawing up the complex legal document.

    A CPS spokesman said: “Any legal communication between different jurisdictions requires extremely careful correspondence, including appropriate translations.
    “We are liaising with the Portuguese authorities and will send the formal Letter of Request as soon as possible.”
    The spokesman said police had fully consulted with the CPS before Scotland Yard went public with its announcement of a full-blown investigation last week.

    Kate & Gerry McCann have expressed total support for the Scotland Yard investigation
    It is a positive step in our hunt for Madeleine that our understanding of the evidence has enabled us to shift from review to investigation
    DCI Andy Redwood
    A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police declined to comment.
    But Clarence Mitchell, spokesman for the McCanns, said: “Kate and Gerry will not be giving a running commentary on every part of this process. But they have absolute faith in the work Scotland Yard are doing.”

    Senior Met Police officers from Operation Grange, the inquiry into Madeleine’s disappearance, are aware of the technical and bureaucratic complexities which face them. But they also remain optimistic of making progress in the case.
    They have told how they believe Madeleine may still be alive and urged the public to continue to help search for her.

    Announcing the full-blown investigation, Det Chief Inspector Andy Redwood, head of Operation Grange, said: “It is a positive step in our hunt for Madeleine that our understanding of the evidence has enabled us to shift from review to investigation.”

    He added: “We, and the Portuguese authorities, remain completely committed to finding out what happened to Madeleine, and everything we do is utterly focused on her best interests.

    “We continue to believe that there is a possibility that Madeleine is alive.” Officers need all relevant ­documents correctly in place to ensure full co-operation between officials here and abroad, and to avoid bureaucratic hitches.
    International criminal investigations in Europe are governed by two “mutual assistance” treaties, one ­dating back to 1959 and the other from 2000.
    An age progressed photo of Maddy, as she is beleived to look on the approach to her ninth birthday
    The conventions set out procedures for matters such as the exchange of legal papers, holding hearings by video-link, the control of undercover officers, phone taps and interception of email and other communications.
    Police revealed they have identified 38 “persons of interest” so far – 12 of whom are British nationals who were in Portugal at the time Madeleine vanished, and are currently thought to be in Portugal or the UK.
    The others on the list are believed to be in Portugal, the UK or three other unnamed European ­countries.

    Madeleine – who would now be 10 years old – went missing from a ­holiday apartment in Praia da Luz on the Algarve on May 3, 2007.
    The Portuguese investigation is officially closed but the authorities there are backing the new Scotland Yard inquiry. Officers from both countries will work together in pursuing fresh leads.
    A team of 37 Met Police officers and staff are working on the case
    So far the team has gathered 30,500 documents and generated 3,800 “actions” they need to tackle.
    They are about two-thirds of the way through their review and so far have been to Portugal 16 times.
    Operation Grange was launched in May 2011 after the McCanns, both 45, and from Rothley, Leics, appealed directly to Prime Minister David Cameron for help from Scotland Yard.

  113. By CHRIS FREIND
    Times Columnist
    (Chris Freind is an independent commentator who operates FreindlyFireZone.com. He can be reached at CF@FreindlyFireZone.com. His column appears every Wednesday)

    "In past columns, I have championed Don Imus keeping his job, defended Barry Bonds’ achievements and stood up for the falsely accused Duke lacrosse players long before it was “fashionable” for the media to do so. I even opined that Paris Hilton was wrongly jailed, receiving unfair treatment because she was a celebrity.

    But no matter how much I try, I simply cannot find anything worth defending about British couple Gerry and Kate McCann.

    The McCanns, for a reason that wholly escapes me, have been worldwide media darlings since their then-3-year-old daughter, Madeleine, disappeared from a Portuguese resort in 2007. A disappearance, mind you, that was 100 percent preventable had Maddy’s parents — both well-to-do physicians — not left her alone, along with her twin 2-year-old siblings, in a ground-floor unlocked apartment not once, but repeatedly, while they sampled the local paella far from their children.

    Such gross negligence should have made them pariahs, but instead, their vaunted PR machine fashioned them into something akin to “heroic victims.”

    Over the years, they have raised millions, engendered the support of (misguided) icons such David Beckham and J.K. Rowling, had a private audience with the Pope, met with high-ranking staff of then-First Lady Laura Bush, wrote a book, and otherwise lavished in the limelight as globetrotting celebrities.

    Along the way, lawsuits have been threatened against anyone who dared question the McCanns’ complicity in their daughter’s fate, despite significant inconsistencies in their stories. Quite sickeningly, their actual search for Maddy all too often seemed like an afterthought, as it was much cooler to hang with stars and dignitaries than do the grunt work.

    Yet for all the baggage that should accompany them, their star power still shines bright, as the Scotland Yard, upon the direction of Prime Minister David Cameron himself, just re-opened the investigation, citing new leads and “persons of interest.”

    Really? After six years and millions of British taxpayers’ money later, they finally have persons of interest?

    Aren’t there laws on the books in Britain against child endangerment? Reckless behavior? Negligence? And to those who say Britain can’t prosecute for a crime committed overseas, you can’t have it both ways, as British investigators are reaching out across Europe in a (likely ill-fated) attempt to interrogate and possibly have suspects arrested in other countries.

    The headlines all read that Maddy was kidnapped, yet there is no evidence — none — of that.


    It seems increasingly clear that McCann case is no longer about what happened to a little girl, but an attempt — some say cover-up — to absolve “upstanding Brits” of any responsibility, conveniently blaming Portugal, the poor man of Europe, for a botched investigation and overall ineptness.

    Looking past the gushing pro-McCann headlines, many the world over believe the parents, accidentally or otherwise, were directly responsible for Maddy’s fate. I certainly cannot make that claim, though Gerry and Kate would seem to be guilty of child endangerment. That said, there remain inconsistencies which, to this day, remain unanswered.

    Therefore, if Scotland Yard wishes to retain its legendary reputation, it needs to investigate the case from Square One, objectively, free from outside influence. No sacred cows, and no one off the table. And the only way to do that is to start with Gerry and Kate, (and their friends who accompanied them that fateful night), forcing the parents to answer tough questions. The taxpayers, and those who have so faithfully followed this saga for so long, deserve no less.

  114. Cont.(Chris Friend's article)

    "You don’t need to be Sherlock Holmes to ask the following:

    1.) Will the McCanns and their friends take lie-detectors tests? While not guaranteed, they’re a good barometer. If there is nothing to hide, releasing the results would be a public relations boon, and the investigation could center on Madeleine — for a change.

    2.) What time was Madeleine discovered missing? *** Was it 9 o’clock, as Kate states, or 10 o’clock as others report, and why the discrepancy? How long did it take for anyone to initially call the police, as there are reports of a significant delay. Kate stated that the shutters were forced open, but the police and hotel staff said there was no evidence of tampering. And Kate, why, upon discovering that your daughter was missing, did you return to the restaurant, leaving the 2-year-old twins alone (again!), while a predator could still have been lurking nearby?

    3.) Kate yelled, “They’ve taken her”, but how did she know Madeleine was abducted? After all, the doors were unlocked, and Madeleine was known to sleepwalk.

    Or perhaps this little girl just happened to awaken, scared,in a dark, unfamiliar place, and looked for the comfort of her parents. Not seeing them, might she have walked out the unlocked door to find them? And when Kate initially yelled “they” took her, to whom was she referring?

    4.) The resort was extremely child-friendly. Why not use its inexpensive baby-sitting services? Some reports state that the McCanns did not want the children to be around people with whom they were unfamiliar. Yet, the same people who ran the day camp the children attended were also the baby sitters. And how could “strangers” be any worse than leaving three young children (with a combined age of 7) alone in an unlocked apartment?

    5.) How often did the parents check the children before Madeleine went missing? Every hour, half-hour, or not at all? (The statements of the resort staff differ markedly from the McCanns). Since the room was a considerable distance away from the restaurant, and its view blocked, how could the McCanns compare that “secure arrangement” to eating in their backyard garden?

    6.) During a BBC interview, Kate was adamant that the children would not awaken while she and Gerry were dining. Yet, since Madeleine reportedly had a history of sleepwalking, how could Kate be so sure of this?

    7.) How many nights did the McCanns dine out while leaving the children alone? What were the distances of those restaurants from their room? Were any away from the hotel?

    8.) How much money raised has actually has been allocated to the physical search for Madeleine? A thorough and independent forensic audit should be conducted.

    9.) In an earlier interview, the McCanns stated, “Looking at it from where we are now, I don’t feel we were irresponsible, I feel we are very responsible parents.” Do they still feel that way?

    10.) Assume that the police dog was accurate in its detection of death in the room, and the death was that of Madeleine. Why then would the perpetrator take away a dead child?

    At a minimum, these questions are a logical starting point to get to the bottom of Madeleine’s disappearance.

    As a wise man once said, lies reveal more than they conceal. If Scotland Yard does its job, perhaps we shall put that saying to the test."

    Finally we read an important question being asked:

    "7.) How many nights did the McCanns dine out while leaving the children alone? What were the distances of those restaurants from their room? Were any away from the hotel?"

    As you know, we're as much believers that they never left the children alone as we are that all dinners (expect the one on the 3rd, which can hardly be called a dinner) were all away from the resort.

    Joseph Breton guilty of Murder

    PUBLISHED: July 12, 2013 at 5:28 pm • LAST EDITED: July 12, 2013 at 5:30 pm
    Crime & Law • 0 Comments

    THE jury unanimously convicted Joseph Breton of the death of his children, Ruth and Joseph, in the Provincial Court of Córdoba.

    The Justice Department have asked for forty years of imprisonment, and they believe Breton killed his children to avenge his wife, Ruth Ortiz.

    The jury reached a unanimous decision, at around 11:30 am on Friday. It came after four days of deliberation.

    Breton murdered both his children and burned them in a funeral pyre of the Quemadillas, their skeletal remains were discovered by police.

    The presiding judge, Peter J. Vela, will now decide what Joseph Breton sentence will be. Both the prosecution and private prosecution requested 40 years’ imprisonment, the maximum penalty for double murder in degree of kinship and premeditation aggravating plus another felony crime simulation.

    Breton reported his children missing on October 8, 2011, he said they were last seen in Parque Cruz Conde de Córdoba, while playing. The town spent days searching for the two children.

    It was over a year later that Judge Jose Luis Rodriguez accused Breton of the two murders. The trial began on June 17, 2013.

    The jury sitting in the trial of José Bretón, accused of the murder of his two children, Ruth and José, in October, 2011 in Córdoba, have found him guilty of the crime of murder after deliberating for a number of days this week.
    Bretón's trial for the death of his two children concluded on Monday with the defence requesting acquittal, rather than the 40 years in prison for double murder that the prosecutors maintained. The conclusion of the deliberation being that there is “no doubt” that he both planned to and enacted the ending of the lives of Ruth and José, aged 6 and 2 respectively, in revenge for his ex-wife leaving him.
    To do this, he gathered large amounts of fuel and firewood in the days before the murder, and, on October the 8th, the took the children to the family estate of Las Quemadillas, drugging them with tranquillizers, before burning their bodies on a metal table, used as a funeral pyre.
    Expert evidence has not been able to confirm the cause of death however, although anthropologists have certified that the skeletal remains found in the fire were the bodies of the children and not just the bones of animals as was claimed.
    In the 15 sittings at the court, 144 witnesses were called to testify and with the lack of witnesses to the crime, and a deficiency in actually physical evidence, the jury of seven women and two men, retired at 12:00 on Tuesday, agreeing their verdict at 11:00 on Friday morning, with a vote of just five required to confirm this status.
    The judge presiding in the case, Pedro Vela, passed the verdict to Bretón at 13:00 in the Provincial Court of Córdoba. Bretón will be sentenced in the next few days.

    Portugal will co-operate with a new British police inquiry into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, the Attorney-General’s office in Lisbon said yesterday.
    Scotland Yard said last week that it had identified potential suspects in the case and wanted to open a new international inquiry into Madeleine’s abduction from a holiday apartment on the Algarve in 2007. But Britain has yet to deliver its formal request for assistance to the Portuguese authorities.

  126. Every time I read Redwood’s statement that they are looking for a ‘conclusion’ makes me sure he’s being literal. There is no intention to do anything more than find a mutually acceptable ending for everyone concerned in both UK and Portugal. Whoever was involved in this cover up will continue to be protected. Mcs will never confess as that would mean exposing those protected so it’s not surprising they are confident.

    My only hope for review is CPS won' want to get involved in cover up. Only they can press charges in UK and I think SY have handed poisoned chalice to them.
    Will they ever send letters of request to Portugal? Portugal are now mocking UK for delay and not impressed by SY suspects.
    Maybe all that will be concluded is Portugal wouldn't pursue it and conclude Maddie more probably dead than alive but no review findings published in detail.
    The fact they were accompanied by Spanish police when 30 boxes from M3 taken suggests not a voluntary handover, and may have been result of insider revelations to SY?
    No one will be a willing patsy to abduction because no finding of Maddie after an arrest means they face murder charge.

    I think that is the fundamental of all questions. If it's proved that ONE dinner did not take place at Tapas, as I agree none did, then its proved the involvement of the resort and guests.
    I even think that the reconstruction that has to be done should be centered on these dinners.
    It would be easy as all is written down. Anyone who has a statement about the dinners should be provided with their statement to be used not only to refresh memories as a script.
    Who took the reservations should show where she sat to write down the guest's name and where did the queue stand.
    The waiters should reproduce, holding their statements, what they served, when and to who. Also explain what they used to put the food in the take-aways and this be confirmed by the clients that used this service.
    The Quiz Mistress should set up things the way they were set. What sound system she used, or not, and how were the contestants split up.
    The T9 should reconstruct, holding their various statements, the comings and goings of the evenings they detailed.
    Lastly, the Ocean Club should show the table where the T9 sat. Have they thrown it away? Get another from where they got that one! Was it an exclusive? Have one made up. Then put it inside the canopy and place 9 chairs around it and start the reconstruction!

    Madeleine McCann police to arrive in Portugal 'within days' to follow up new leads
    By Tom Pettifor
    20 Jul 2013 08:19


    Officers from Scotland Yard travelling to the scene could interview witnesses and suspects, search properties and even make arrests

    British detectives looking for missing Madeleine McCann could arrive in Portugal within days to follow up a string of new leads.

    Officers from Scotland Yard will travel to the scene of the crime, potentially interviewing witnesses and suspects, searching properties and even making arrests.

    It comes after the Crown Prosecution Service yesterday confirmed it had written a letter to Portuguese judges on Thursday asking for permission to gather evidence, with the help of the local police.

    The letter is believed to name a number of suspects and witnesses living in Portugal who officers want to talk to over the coming months.

    It is thought to outline possible offences being probed, including child trafficking, kidnap and murder.

    Madeleine went missing while she was on holiday in the Algarve with parents Kate and Gerry and her twin siblings six years ago.

    The Met said two weeks ago that it wanted to trace 38 potential suspects across five countries, having reviewed the case for two years.

    It announced a full criminal inquiry and Detective Chief Inspector Andy Redwood, who is leading Operation Grange, said: “The review has given us new thinking, new theories, new evidence and new witnesses.”

    He added: “We remain committed to finding out what happened to Madeleine. Everything we do is utterly focused on her best interests. We continue to believe there is a possibility she is alive. We remain in close contact with Kate and Gerry McCann.”

    Last night Scotland Yard refused to be drawn on when the team of detectives would fly out but a CPS spokesman confirmed yesterday: “The letter has been sent.”

    Alison Saunders, the chief crown prosecutor for London, and her colleague Jenny Hopkins, head of the CPS complex casework unit, have already discussed how to obtain the evidence with Portuguese lawyers.

    Launching a full investigation abroad is rare and such probes are tightly governed.
    It will be a joint inquiry between the two countries and authorities in capital Lisbon insisted “the British authorities cannot act on their own in Portugal”.

    Madeleine was almost four when she disappeared from her family’s holiday ¬apartment in Praia da Luz in May 2007.

    She had been asleep in the apartment with the younger twins while her parents dined out with their friends nearby.

    The original Portuguese inquiry was shelved in 2008. British detectives have visited the country 16 times in the past two years but the probe could not be re-opened unless there was significant new evidence.

    Prime Minister David Cameron ordered the Met to review the case in 2011 and a team examined files from Portuguese police, British agencies and the McCanns’ private detectives.

    The discovery of new leads convinced the Met there was a chance of solving the case, leading to Thursday’s International Letter of Request.

    When the probe was confirmed, a spokesman for the McCanns said: “It is a big step forward in establishing what happened and, hopefully, towards bringing whoever is responsible for Madeleine’s abduction to justice.”

  137. The constant stream of news on the subject means that whoever is pushing this is NOT letting off any pressure!
    Remember the news we had following SY announcing the 195 new leads? Almost nothing immediately following and it died completely soon after that (am curious to find out what these 195 leads were...)
    We just to compare with the news that have been steadily coming out since SY announced it had found people of interest in Luz.
    I think this is one unstoppable train. And as I agree with Anon #135 it's towards the REAL truth.

  141. The British tried to force the Portuguese to reopen the case. But if it was due to terms set or for not wanting the risk of making a fool of themselves again, the Portuguese didn't reopen.
    Now the British have taken the case into their own hands and are now responsible for what they make themselves to be to their own public. From the start the Brits haven taken the Portuguese for fools but how wrong they were.

    They may both be tabloids but I don't think the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) would allow to be misquoted by any paper.
    The Mirror is clear that it's CPS that says the letter has been sent, so I think this to be an absolute truth.
    The Mirror also reminds that CPS's top brass are involved in this case: "Alison Saunders, the chief crown prosecutor for London, and her colleague Jenny Hopkins, head of the CPS complex casework unit, have already discussed how to obtain the evidence with Portuguese lawyers."
    Both papers are clear about the intent.
    The Mirror says "Officers from Scotland Yard travelling to the scene could interview witnesses and suspects, search properties and even make arrests"
    CdM says "Os investigadores planeiam interrogar testemunhas e suspeitos, fazer buscas em propriedades e até detenções."
    Things are not looking good for BHs.

  149. The british paedos that come to enjoy the sunny Algarve...those were there in 2007, and I bet many still are! I remember that a delegation of the british police came to Portugal in 2008 or 2009, I'm not sure of the date, very interested in those british paedos...interested in keeping their identities SECRET!!! NOT interested in investigating them in connection with the case, but insisting on keeping their names out of the released files...

    Where you see a half empty glass I see a half full one!
    The fact that Alison Saunders was promoted only increases her responsibility in the case. It also may have been to show the significance for CPS that this case may have.
    We're talking about a too serious of an institution in this nation to be played around with and this has to produce results!
    I'm sure that the Black Hats (or Mcc machine as you call them) have nothing to do with this promotion. If it was so the promotion would have come after "pretended" results and not before.
    I think the fact that Alisn Saunders was promoted is really good news!

    Nice comment!!! Agree absolutely with you!!!
    Many witnesses have described in DETAIL what supposedly happened in those dinners. It should be quite easy to reconstruct.
    About the Quiz Nights the police should also bring in the guests listed on the reservation sheets and see where they were seated, who did they team up with and who were the opposing teams.
    I'm sure the events during that week are still fresh on everyone's minds and they would even be able to recollect the questions they got right and the ones they got wrong! In their team who was that got the most answers right and who got the most wrong. Quiz Nights are fun and as I said one taking place in a week that turned out to be so significant wasn't forgotten!
    What happened (or NOT!!!) in those Tapas dinners are the key to all!!!

  156. Just found out that some comments, for unknown reasons, have been sent to the blog’s spam.

    Starting with one of mine!

    So as not to alter the numbering of the existing comments I’ll now publish these comments.

    First one was, as I said, mine:


    “Textusa has left a new comment on your post "Blog Break":

    It seems that today we live an historic day: the Review has been upgraded to Investigation.

    It means that now the SY will have to present results

    It seems that Cameron's "Yes, I can" faction is gaining advantage over the "But, can I?" one.

    Strange that it has taken more than 2 years to reach the conclusion that there are "38 people of interest".

    38 people seems to us a task that shouldn't take that long.

    Also, only 12 are UK citizens (not saying where they are) which means that 26 are NOT. Yes, the Ocean Club was indeed overstaffed we know.

    All in all, these aren't worthwhile for us to interrupt our holidays for.

    JP: vamos agora a uma notícia que vai marcar o dia e, os próximos tempos

    " as autoridades inglesas vão reabrir oficialmente o caso maddie mccann". Ao que parece, 38 suspeitos e, acredita-se que a criança está viva".

    Esperemos que a Polícia Britânica possa gastar este valor com todas as crianças desaparecidas em Uk e que são muitas.

    APP: nós não podemos gastar 5 milhões de euros com esta criança. Nós não podemos. E eles não podem obrigar-nos a fazer uma coisa destas.
    Esta noticia é cíclica. De 6 em 6 meses eu assisto a esta notícia aqui nesta estação de TV. E, a tentativa é permanente. " Ela está viva e vamos à procura dela".
    Que se entretenham onde eles quiserem mas aqui não. Nós não temos este dinheiro para gastar e temos mais que fazer. A Polícia Judiciária , que é uma Polícia verdadeiramente notável, tem que se ocupar de coisas sérias como faz e , com eficácia. Não é isto. A PJ já tentou e não era o que os ingleses queriam. Podem ir à procura da criança todos os dias, podem colocar a SY à procura da criança em todo o Mundo , podem fazê-lo! Aqui, não! E estamos a falar da cooperação judicial internacional que exige cooperação, intervenção de Polícias de nacionalidades diferentes de Países Europeus com um objectivo comum . E aqui não há um objectivo comum. Porque a Polícia Judiciária e o Ministério Público Português não tem preocupações desta natureza e não tem qualquer necessidade de abrir novas pistas ou novas provas . Portanto os Polícias ingleses não podem entrar aqui sem andar de mãos dadas com os Polícia Portugueses. E os Polícias Portugueses têm mais que fazer sobre este assunto.

    Podem fazê-lo acompanhados pela Polícia Portuguesa na sequência da reabertura do Inquérito . Não há aqui inquérito nenhum , não há a necessidade de reabertura do processo . Não há convencimento do Ministério Público e nem sequer da Polícia Judiciária que, não sei porquê está no Porto! Não sei por que a competência foi transferida para o Porto para fazer investigação nesta matéria quando os factos estão no Algarve. Não entendo ! Por estar mais perto de Londres? Não faço ideia.
    Uma coisa é certa, por muito respeito que seja devido a um parceiro da União E. , não mandam no que diz respeito à competência Judiciária Portuguesa. Há aqui limites jurisdiscionais. Entram na esquecia de uma reabertura do Inquérito Policial onde as autoridades Portuguesas estão igualmente convencidas ser necessário ouvir os 38 ou 70 ou 90 pessoas. Ora, não sendo assim vão investigar os 38 suspeitos…….. É o que eu digo. De 6 em 6 meses há novos 38 suspeitos. Andamos nisto constantemente nisto há vários anos. Já chega!

    O objectivo na realidade é o das pessoas ficarem com a ideia que a criança está viva.
    Naturalmente todos gostariam de ver a criança viva mas isto é uma maçada , e nós não temos dinheiro para gastar com isto.

    Fala a Psicóloga sobre a negligência e o facto de haver mais duas crianças. E, sobre o que Portugal faria sobre isso.

    AAP: se abandonados, de acordo com a lei portuguesa seria uma atitude censurada. Eles deixarem as crianças abandonadas e irem para festas.

    Just for those who have wondered where Leonor Cipriano might have been "tortured":

    "April killer Mark Bridger slashed in jail

    Monster scarred in blade attack at Wakefield Prison

    THE killer of little April Jones has been scarred for life in a jail blade attack.

    Mark Bridger, 47, screamed in pain as another lag slashed his face with a makeshift knife.

    Bridger, serving life for murdering April, needed stitches after the attack at Wakefield Prison, West Yorks, on Sunday afternoon as he walked along a gangway.

    Prison officers instantly rushed to save Bridger — caged after his conviction in May — from further injury. He was taken to a local hospital where medics stitched his face.

    The Sun told yesterday how Bridger feared being killed after being moved out of the vulnerable prisoners’ unit at the jail, dubbed Monster Mansion.

    A source said: “He was attacked by at least one inmate and suffered serious injuries to his face.

    “If he was in any doubt about the level of hatred towards him as a convicted child killer, that doubt has been firmly removed now.”

    Last night Prison Service officials said police were probing the attack.

    Bridger snatched April near her home in Machynlleth, Powys, in October.

    The five-year-old’s body has never been found."


    Joana Cipriano's body was never found either.

  163. David Cameron chegou ao aeroporto de Faro rodeado de fortes medidas de segurança, ontem de manhã, e deverá ficar cerca de uma semana de férias no Algarve. O primeiro-ministro inglês escolheu o sul de Portugal para descansar alguns dias ao lado da mulher, Samantha, e dos três filhos – Nancy (de nove anos), Arthur (sete) e Florence (dois).

    Ao que o Correio da Manhã apurou, o governante britânico viajou a partir de Londres, Inglaterra, num voo da companhia de baixo custo EasyJet e aterrou no aeroporto de Faro por volta das 11h00. Saiu por uma zona reservada e, segundo foi possível apurar, seguiu para um esconderijo secreto numa zona rural do interior do Algarve, bastante longe da agitação das praias do sul de Portugal.

    Ao seu lado, em todas as horas do dia, David Cameron tem um batalhão de elementos da polícia inglesa Scotland Yard e do Corpo de Segurança Pessoal da PSP, que o acompanharão para todo o lado durante as férias.

    Segundo o CM apurou, o primeiro-ministro inglês escolheu um local onde pode descansar e também desfrutar das belezas naturais da região.

  164. Recebe pedido de auxílio britânico por Maddie McCann
    Publicado às 19.01


    A Procuradoria-Geral da República recebeu um pedido de auxílio judiciário das autoridades britânicas, no âmbito da investigação aberta em Londres ao desaparecimento da criança inglesa Madeleine McCann, em 2007, no Algarve.

    Em nota enviada hoje à agência Lusa, a PGR refere que recebeu "um pedido de auxílio judiciário mútuo das autoridades britânicas", acrescentando que "não existe previsão de quando é que as diligências terão lugar".

    Ressalva ainda a PGR que "as autoridades britânicas não poderão realizar diligências em território português, podendo apenas ser permitida a sua presença para assistirem as autoridades portuguesas na execução do mencionado pedido".

    Significa que as autoridades britânicas não poderão realizar qualquer interrogatório ou diligência sem que sejam acompanhadas pelo Ministério Público (MP).

    As autoridades londrinas confirmaram que há portugueses entre as 38 pessoas de interesse que a polícia britânica deseja interrogar na investigação que foi aberta naquele país.

    A imprensa britânica já tinha avançado a hipótese de a Scotland Yard abrir a sua própria investigação ao caso, no sequimento da revisão aberta em 2011 por intervenção do primeiro-ministro, David Cameron.

    Na altura, a polícia confirmou que uma delegação de responsáveis superiores da Procuradoria da Coroa e de detetives britânicos visitou Portugal em meados de abril para discutir os próximos passos a dar com as autoridades portuguesas.

    Os pais, Kate e Gerry McCann, e um outro britânico, Robert Murat, foram constituídos arguidos pelas autoridades judiciais portuguesas em julho de 2007, mas, a 21 de julho de 2008, o MP determinou o arquivamento das suspeitas, o que ditou o fim das investigações.

    O MP português sempre admitiu a reabertura, caso surjam novos dados sobre o desaparecimento da criança de um aldeamento turístico da Praia da Luz.

    JP refere o pedido que PGR recebeu e reafirma que só podem actuar em Portugal como observadores sendo a responsabilidade de toda a investigação da Polícia Portuguesa.

    HC:

    diz-nos a história ( Ultimato Inglês- Mapa cor de Rosa) que quando eles querem conseguem tudo. Diz-nos a História.


    O Hino Nacional surgiu precisa e inicialmente por causa do Ultimato " contra os Bretões marchar, marchar "

    ( depois mudou contra os canhões …)

    Ultimato britânico de 1890 – Wikipédia, a enciclopédia livre

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1890_British_Ultimatum

    Enviaram agora o pedido mas eles já cá estão há imenso tempo. Até O DC cá está……….


    Já cá estão todos.

    Portanto, isto é formal .

    Toda a vida fizeram o que quiseram e vão continuar a fazer. Isto é tudo a brincar.

    Parece mesmo que eles estão convencidos que isto aqui é Marrocos de Cima.

    O que está escrito é que não podem realizar qualquer tipo de operações ou investigações com interrogatórios.


    E de todas as vezes que os ingleses não podiam fazer, fizeram. Nós perdemos sempre. Por que há-de ser agora diferente?

    Pedir autorização para cá virem investigar? Já cá andaram sem pedir autorização a ninguém….

    Holidays are always enjoyable when one is surrounded by the love of our dearest friends and families.

    As we've said, we've always had this break. This year we have just not synchronized our "holiday-watches" so when one is returning, another is just starting...

    The golden rule of the blog is that we fly always in a close formation of three. Always. So only when all 3 return from our respective holidays will the blog return.

    Do rest your mind it will return.

    But don't expect us back at least before the end of August or beginning of September as Summer is Summer and we intend to enjoy every last "drop" of it.

    Then we can return absolutely refreshed and at our best. Just as you like it and the BH don't.

    It seems YOUR truth is starting to bloom...
    From JH:


    "sharonl Yesterday at 6:03 pm

    Who?What?Where? wrote:Mr Bennett mentioned a coincidence.

    There seem to be a lot of them, in this case.

    If I have understood things, correctly, we have have the nephew of Margaret Hodge, (nee Openheimer),not only in PDL, but at the same resort, at the same time, as the Tapas9.

    Margaret Hodge , was replaced in her, then, position within the Government, by Ed Vaizey, who was the former boyfriend of Esther Mcvey, a childhhood friend of Kate McCann and who was involved , at one point, in the Madeleine fund, before resigning and becoming an MP herself.

    Caveat, this is just my recollection from memory, based upon what I have read on the internet. None of this may be true.

    Nevertheless, if it is true, (and I am sure that it is checkable), there are a surprising amount of coincidence's there, don't you think?

    If this is not factually correct, then please advise me where the flaw in my recollection is.



    Coincidences, yes there are so many in this case.

    Margaret Hodge (nee Oppenheimer) is not only Aunt to the one man who claimed to have seen and photographed Madeleine on May 3rd (even though he could not produce the photographs when asked), she is also a close colleague of Lord Levy - who just happens to be a friend of Tony Blair and chief fundraiser for the Labour Party (despite having been arrested under the 'Cash for honours' scandal in 2007).

    Lord Levy is an associate of millionairess Dame Vivien Duffield. Levy, Duffield and Hodge, are commonly involved in a number of charities.

    Lord Levy and Dame Vivien Duffield are Patrons to - or on the committee of - a number of Jewish charities including "Friends of Israel, Educational Foundation", of which Peter Oppenheimer is Trustee

    Duffield is known to have made substantial loans to the Labour Government, with Levy as the fundraiser.

    What a coincidence that she should be a Patron to the PACT Charity (associated with Kate McCann's Missing Persons charity).

    A further coincidence is that Sergi Martorell (husband of Carer-Ruck Solicitor Isabel Martorell). between Feb 07 and May 08, worked for the 3i Group. The McCanns' main benefactor, Brian Kennedy, had substantial dealings with the 3i Group during this time, as did Baroness Sarah Hogg, until she stepped down from her role as Chairman in 2009.

    Sarah Hogg's sister-in-law is Mrs Justice Hogg, who made Madeleine a ward of court.

    I cannot confirm this - but it was once alleged that Brian Kennedy and one of the Hogg sisters, via the 3i group, had a stake in the forensic science lab in Birmingham.

    So yes, definitely a lot of coincidences."

    Rolf Harris held for second time as Operation Yewtree cops probe fresh sex allegations

    By Tom Pettifor
    6 Aug 2013 08:59

    The Australian entertainer and artist, 83, was released on bail after being held for a second time

    Rolf Harris faced a new round of questioning yesterday as it was revealed police are probing fresh sex allegations against him.

    The Australian entertainer and artist, 83, was released on bail after being held for a second time.
    He was quizzed by detectives from Operation Yewtree – set up in the wake of the Jimmy Savile sex abuse scandal.

    Officers first raided Harris’s Berkshire home on November 24 last year but he was not in.

    He was interviewed under caution five days later on suspicion of sex offences believed to relate to one woman who came forward following the Savile scandal.

    Harris was first arrested in March and two months later officers travelled to Australia where they spent more than two hours taking a statement from mum-of-two Lauren Martell, 43, at her home in Sydney.

    Lauren, who was a 19-year-old backpacker at the time of one alleged incident, contacted Scotland Yard in November.

    It is understood she does not claim she was the victim of any offence. A second woman from Sydney has also spoken to British police.

    It was unclear last night if the new claims relate to more alleged victims. Harris has been bailed until later this month.

    The Metropolitan Police did not name Harris, but he was identified from the police’s case number – Yewtree 5. His arrests are not connected to the Savile strand of the investigation.
    A spokesman said: “He has returned on bail today, where he was further arrested on suspicion of sexual offences in connection with further allegations made to Operation Yewtree. He has been re-bailed to a date later in August.

    “This individual falls under the strand of the investigation we have termed ‘others’. We are not prepared to discuss further, nor comment on the identity of who the man arrested may be.”

    No charges have been brought and Harris has strenuously denied any wrongdoing.

    His latest arrest comes a day after he made an emotional appearance on stage. Harris performed at Wickham Festival in Hampshire, on Sunday night, telling fans: “Just before I go any further I would just like to thank you all for my support… for your support.”

    He said: “I didn’t say it very well, but you know what I mean. Thank you for your support,” adding jokily: “… I will always wear it.”

    Fans of all ages joined him in singing his classics, including Two Little Boys, Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport and a cover version of Stairway to Heaven.

    Harris’s wife, Alwen, 81, has said he is painting to help cope with the stress.

    Police have arrested 12 men as part of Operation Yewtree including convicted paedophile Gary Glitter, comics Freddie Starr and Jim Davidson, PR guru Max Clifford and DJ Dave Lee Travis.

    All deny any wrongdoing and investigations are ongoing.

    Detective set to publish McCann book in Britain
    Portuguese officer who led the search for Madeleine says his account defends the honour of his team

    BY THAIS PORTILHO-SHRIMPTON SUNDAY 16 NOVEMBER 2008

    A controversial best-selling account of the hunt for Madeleine McCann by the Portuguese detective who led the investigation is expected to be published in the UK soon, according to its author.

    Speaking exclusively to The Independent on Sunday, Goncalo Amaral denied cashing in on the tragic disappearance of the three-year-old but said he was determined to restore his reputation, which "had been torn to shreds" by unfair and inaccurate media reports.

    The book, Maddie: The Truth about the Lie, has already sold an estimated 180,000 copies in Europe, and Mr Amaral's representatives are trying find a British publisher. The McCanns said last night that they would scrutinise any British publication with a view to possible legal action.

    Madeleine went missing on 3 May 2007, days before her fourth birthday, from a holiday apartment in the Algarve resort of Praia da Luz as her parents dined at a nearby restaurant. In the Portuguese edition of his book, Mr Amaral says he believes she died in a "tragic accident" in the Mark Warner holiday flat where she was left to sleep the night she disappeared.

    Mr Amaral was removed from the investigation in October 2007 after criticising British police officers. Nine months later the Portuguese authorities closed the investigation and lifted the arguido [suspect] label from Madeleine's parents.

    The book's publisher, Mario Sena Lopes, said there was now an English version of Mr Amaral's book and he was negotiating a UK deal. He said several publishers were interested and he was confident the British public would soon be able to read the book.

    Mr Amaral said: "I received numerous messages of support and solidarity since being taken off the case, including from the UK – messages that also motivated me to tell people what I knew about the Maddie case. I am positive that there's also a section of the public eager to know the truth.

    "People can form their opinion without the manipulation that we have seen before."

    He said his only regret was failing to carry out a reconstruction of the events soon after Madeleine vanished but claims he was put under "serious pressure" not to. He insisted this was the only failure in a "perfect" text-book investigation.

    Asked whether he thought Madeleine was dead, he said: "It is not just my opinion. A whole team of Portuguese and British investigators came to that conclusion last year, and this is part of the files. I have never said the couple killed their daughter and this is not my belief. Deaths may happen for natural reasons, accident or intervention by a third party."

    He said he was unperturbed by the threat of any legal action from the McCann family. "There is no reason for that. The details exposed in the book are facts, happenings and objective data which figure in the process and not lies, as they have been described in the press."

    He denied he was profiting from the tragic case. "The biggest thing I achieved with this book was to defend my honour and that of those who worked with me. The way I see it, you cannot put a price on dignity. The other objective of the book is to contribute to the search for the truth."

    Mr Amaral added that he is now considering legal action against a number of British media outlets. The "excessive" publicity the case attracted was a "double-edged sword: on one hand it makes the disappearance known, but on the other hand it puts the life of the missing person in jeopardy," he insisted. "I demanded from my superiors, they stand up for the investigators faced with attacks by the media, but that never happened. This was one of the reasons that led me later on to hand in my resignation so I could regain my freedom of speech and write the book."

    Clarence Mitchell, a spokesman for the McCanns, said last night: "Lawyers for Kate and Gerry have been aware of what Mr Amaral has been alleging for some time. What he has said and written before now is grossly defamatory of them.

    "If he chooses to publish them in Britain those words will be studied intensely carefully and they will not hesitate to act if they are defamatory."

    Thank you so much for your comment.

    We would like to believe this is true but are you sure you have read correctly because one of us got excited recently when we heard this, only to discover on re reading that it referred to events a few years ago?

    If you haven't made the same mistake, can you give us the up to date reference?

    Once again, thank you.

    Sometimes news are so good that one's eyes are so eager to read that they skip facts in their hurry...

    We certainly do not want to contribute to the spreading of rumours!!!

    Even if GA won the libel case, we would guess he would have to find a willing distributor in UK even if he self-published. That would be the challenge!

  183. The article in DN could only read if a person bought the newspaper.
    But I have an app (created by a Portuguese) and managed to read the whole article and which I consider no interest.

    BUT ...... I found it very telling that the DN has done 3 questions Alipio Ribeiro. Very telling because i think the campaign proMc is very alive.

    AR did not support the first research team of Portimão, in this case.

    AR took the Team Coordinator of Portimao to Faro.

    AR in 2008 gave very proMcCann comments.

    Well ..... AR but was fired immediately.

    The newspapers say that AR has demanded the resignation. But this is an elegant way to publish his dismissal.


    In the blog below, the author defends AR.

    But when they humbled GA and did not support him when he also had an outburst?

    "No programa Quadratura do Círculo, da SIC Notícias, os dois políticos consideraram que Alípio Ribeiro provocou danos difíceis ou mesmo impossíveis de reparar. "

    I'm #177/#178, sorry for not replying sooner, but I've been without access to a computer for a few days and only saw your post today. Yes, I humbly admit I got it all wrong...the perfect example of someone who "jumped the gun"! I came across this in Jill Havern's site, it was posted by Peter Mac, someone I trust and respect, and I got so pleased and excited about it, it seemed too good to be true, I thought "oh my God, at last", and felt the need to share it with the blog, but regrettably I did not think of checking the date of the article. I did not realize it was old news (and I think Peter Mac made the same mistake),oh dear... I'm feeling so silly now...

    I'm so sorry

    Madeleine McCann hunt 'makes progress'

    AN elite squad of detectives probing the disappearance of Madeleine McCann will fly to Portugal to pursue new leads “in weeks”.

    By: John Twomey
    Published: Wed, August 14, 2013
    0Comments


    The latest development was revealed yesterday by Britain’s top policeman following diplomatic moves linked to the inquiry.

    Scotland Yard is waiting for the green light after Home Secretary Theresa May sent an official request for British police to carry out investigations in Portugal.

    Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe said he hoped his officers will fly out in the next few weeks.

    He was speaking after the Yard’s Operation Grange identified 38 potential suspects from five countries, including 12 Britons.

    Sir Bernard said yesterday his ¬officers will carry out a joint inquiry with Portuguese police in a bid to get to the truth of what happened to Madeleine.

    Her parents Kate and Gerry have never given up hope that she is still alive.

    And Sir Bernard stressed yesterday his officers have found no firm ¬evidence that the little girl is dead.

    Asked when the detectives will fly to Portugal, he said he hoped it would be “in the next few weeks”.

    Madeleine was three when she went missing from the McCann family apartment in the Algarve resort of Praia da Luz in May 2007.

    Her parents, both doctors from Rothley, Leicestershire, are being kept informed about the progress of the new Yard inquiry.

    After a painstaking examination of files from Portuguese and British police along with inquiries from seven firms of private investigators, last month the Operation Grange squad came up with the list of 38 “persons of interest”.

    As part of the review, officers from the 30-strong squad travelled to Portugal 16 times to discuss evidence and the potential for new inquiries.

    Crucially, there have been inquiries with several other countries, although the Yard is keeping the details strictly confidential.

    Speaking of the investigation, legal sources said last night: “We are on track.”

    Last month’s exchange of diplomatic letters between London and Lisbon was seen as a significant step.

    It followed a visit in April by senior Crown lawyer Alison Saunders, who will become Director of Public Prosecutions in November.

    Mrs Saunders’s visit was seen as paving the way for Operation Grange detectives to start inquiries in Portugal.

    Her intervention was described as “crucial” yesterday as police planned for the next stage of the inquiry.

    Sir Bernard stressed British police can do nothing in Portugal without official co-operation.

    Operation Grange was set up in 2011 by the then Commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson after the McCanns appealed directly to Prime Minister David Cameron and Mrs May.

    Last month, Detective Chief Inspector Andy Redwood, the officer in charge, revealed his team has sifted through more than 30,500 documents.

    The process had generated almost 4,000 different lines of inquiry.

    The result was the list of 38 potential suspects.

    As he launched the new inquiry last month, Mr Redwood said: “The review has given us new thinking, new theories, new evidence and new witnesses. We remain committed to finding out what happened to Madeleine. Everything we do is utterly focused on her best interests.”

    Portugal’s Attorney General’s office has confirmed receipt of Mrs May’s letter of request.

    Sources said a timetable for “when and how” to proceed was being worked out.

    The McCanns have welcomed the latest stage of the Operation Grange inquiry as a “big step forward”.

    Mr McCann said recently: “Not a day goes by where we don’t think about Madeleine. You’re not going to accept that your child’s dead unless there’s conclusive proof.

    “We have always lived in the hope that we can find Madeleine, and given the number of cases of children who have been taken and found many years later, there is real hope.

    “The biggest problem is that we won’t know what’s happened to Madeleine until we find who’s responsible.”

    The McCanns have said they have “absolute faith” in the inquiry and dismissed reports it was being “slowed down” by red tape.

    International legal experts say diplomatic communications involving police investigations must be precisely worded.

    One lawyer remarked: “You have to be extremely careful in any diplomatic communication but especially when there are legal ramifications.

    Communications relating to police investigations must be drafted with great care and precision bearing in mind they have to be translated.

    “The meaning of every document must be clear. Each one could be challenged in courts of each country involved.”

  189. #186/187,

    So...Sir Bernard says there is no firm evidence Madeleine is dead...what about the dogs, Sir Bernard?! Why is Eddie and Keela's work (findings) being ignored?!

    No firm evidence, really?! ASK THE DOGS, Sir Bernard!!! Their work alone has been crucial and good enough to serve as "firm" evidence of death in many, many disappearance cases, but not in Maddies case...I wonder why the dogs would fail preciselly in this case, why their findings are not being taken seriously...maybe there's something in the Algarve air that misleads the dogs...sea bass odour maybe...?

  190. It seems to me, about the Express' news today about the investigation being on the right track, that SY is committing themselves further and further into a result. There's no going back now. It's either the continuance of the cover-up or the truth. If they continue the cover-up they know the will face harsh questioning. I see no reasons for the McCs to smile. See loads of reasons for them and many others to frown with worry.

    Fair point. But if the met decide to 'continue with the cover-up', from whom will they 'face harsh questioning'? Us lot? Wow, that'll really scare officialdom! We'll be swotted like flies.

    Concerned Politicians maybe? Well Where've they been these last six years? Unless they're milking the Mc bandwagon for their own career- enhancing agenders, they couldn't give a monkey's right tit about this case.

    The Portuguese maybe? The PJ? If what is being printed in the press is any reflection of the truth,it seems to me the Portuguese have been asked to jump by the English, and their reply is 'sim, sim, how high,senhor?'

    British police and politicians know only too well that most Brits believe in the abduction nonsense. Not only that, they also know that most Brits will be hostile to any serious suggestion that the good doctors and their chums could have had anything to do with poor Madeleine's vanishing act. I put it down English class sobbery and xenophobia. But it exist, and it's as strong as ever.

    If the Met decide on the cover-up, then cover-up it will be - no questions asked. What jemmied shutters, What sniffer dogs? Blimey, the Little Englanders of Blighty have long forgotten such inconvenient details. Reconstruction? They know not the meaning.

    Sorry to ramble, but I'm feeling disappointed with cetain directions.

    Yes, US LOT! Who do you think forced the SY Review? And now the investigation? US LOT.
    Who kept Maddie alive forcing the system to react?
    Our words are forever written here and accessible to all. To the eyes of any commoner or to the highest dignitaries of any country!
    It's just plain common sense to think that the various world powers will use the Maddie case against us.
    Look at US LOT as a small stone that hits a pond. The ripples reach places very unpleasant for Britain and her interests. Maddie is an embarrassment.

    "The ancient sages said, "do not despise the snake for having no horns, for who is to say it will not become a dragon?". So may one just man become an army"

    And if they continue the cover-up they still have to produce a result. Then don't you think that the mainstream media won't pick up the issue? Of course it will.
    Then, when it starts to not make sense AGAIN, will they continue the circus? People, and not only US LOT, will start to questions tired as they are of all this silly business.
    I'm very proud to be part of this small tenacious "US LOT"

  193. Sometimes when we are involved or interested in a case and there seems no progress we often only see the negative side, lack of progress or prosecution lack of justice for Madeleine. The McCann’s have created a media monster through their desperation for us to believe their fictitious abductor story but in doing so far more people worldwide have become interested than would have done if the Mccanns had been honest from the start. 6 years seems a long time for no progress but it is nothing in the scope of time and there has been much progress. For example look at where we are now, the McCann’s marriage I believe is in tatters it has become nothing more than a business venture and a sham, two people afraid to speak to each other about events for fear of being overheard with advanced technology, they hide behind Carter Ruck whose fees were paid from the public purse. The public no longer supports the McCann’s. They no longer have backers, their abductor story has not one shred of evidence to support it, their tapas friends have not come forward and pleaded for Madeleine’s return or offered to take part in a reconstruction or state McCann’s innocence, instead they have distanced themselves from this money grubbing pair. Their story is pure fantasy as we now know and become boring, no comments are allowed on their online news articles, they are not the sought after celebrities they once were that pulled in audiences or sold newspapers. Now in 2013 the McCann’s appear pathetic and desperate their body language exposes their lies. They attempt to make money and gain cheap publicity through charity runs that are barely mentioned in the press. The Met may attempt a whitewash that is to the Met but they will lose credibility and their reputation will be damaged once the full facts come out which know can only be a matter of time. Gerry had a ‘moment of madness’ he decided to cover up his daughter’s death as Kate said in her book he said ‘we are ruined’ what father would say that? The facts are all there we have mulled over them, none of what the Mccanns state has any credibility or evidence, a quickly put together story about an abductor by 9 friends who could never have imaged that it would reach such worldwide media heights thanks to the desperate parents. Textusa has been absolutely brilliant in her analysis, Amaral has stood firm and so has Tony Bennett these people will not be silenced there are others that we will not know of until this sad case is finally resolved, but by inviting the worlds media into their messy business the Mccanns sealed their fate, ‘too much information’ Kate and Gerry it’s all down in writing all the inconsistencies and discrepancies and just awaiting your court appearance., every action has a reaction. God bless you Maddie you deserved so much more.

    No, I don't think the 'mainstream media' will pick up on a cover-up. They already know it's a cover-up. They haven't picked up on it thus far, and that's a fact we can all agree on, surely. If the Met, in collab with Portugal decide on a cover-up it will be conveniently arranged to ensure minimum embarrassment to all involved. And the forces that are keeping the 'mainstream media' in order at the moment will be stronger than ever.

    ReplyDelete
  195. Agree with your response @192. Any "solution" will produce a storm of media interest and more questions than answers.
    Only the production of Maddie alive will suffice. A dead Maddie will start speculation and any attempt to say she was abducted but we haven't found her takes the review in a full circle costing 5 million plus to rotate around.

  197. 196 - I disagree with your comment - other comments are valid they state the importance of progress - there is much progression everything takes time we have to show patience eventually justice will be ours. Comments are not attempting to minimize the internets importance, it is the internet and media that will eventually resolved this case. After 6 years where are there any newcomers? Most people feel are familiar with the Mccanns version and that the Mccanns are guilty we have all heard Madelines story of their fake abductor, we now await justice...

    The notion that the mainstream media won't pick up on SY investigation's result is just... ludicrous.
    The day the sY announce the result of their investigation it will be all over the news all over the world.
    If they charge the parents, it will be on the news how they fooled us all.
    If they charge also guests and the resort, then it will be all about what was really going on and about the cover-up.
    If they charge a scapegoat, a Mr X, then his life will be scrutinized and people will ask whta happened to Maddie.
    If they don't charge anyone, people will wonder why they said they had 38 people of interest and why was SY so keen on reopening the process as well as ask Cameron what the millions were for.
    Just look at the importance that has been given by that media about the exchange of letters.
    If you haven't noticed, the mainstream media have echoed the tabloid news about Maddie.
    Any news about Maddie brings in newcomers. Any subject that hits the news will be researched online. Maddie is a popular subject. She was made popular by the press that helped the cover-up. The press knows there's a cover-up, I know. They are part of it! But the same press knows, like the politicians know that truth will surface one day.
    JFK was a President so people tend to expect that there was foul play in his death (as years later it proved to be). Marilyn Monroe was a celebrity who was said to have romantic connections with the US Government, the 2 Kennedy brothers, and the mafia. So people aren't surprised if there's foul play in her death as well.
    People tend to condescend on any foul play about these kind of deaths.
    But every time there's a new finding in any of these 2 deaths the mainstream media publishes the story because people are interested.
    And interested people have this new tool called internet right at the tip of their fingers.
    Maddie was a little girl. People will not condescend on any foul play about this kind of death.
    I'll give you an example. The Lindbergh baby was kidnapped over 80 years ago. Apparently they found out who did it, Bruno Hauptmann. He was convicted in a PUBLIC trial with all the media following it. Today it's still not clear if it was indeed him but that is not the example I want to use.
    Imagine the scandal TODAY if it was found out that there was proof that the US Administration, under President Hoover, helped to cover-up what happened to the Charles Lindbergh? And that the Administration that followed it, President FDR's, had continued to help that cover-up?
    Would that interest people? You bet! The difference? Not only there was no internet then as anyone reading about the subject online will quickly get the perception that the McCanns were helped out by the UK Gov.
    Another example. Remember all the media attention that John Mark Karr got after confessing having killed JonBenet Ramsey? He was even photographed on the plane flying from Bangkok to the US!
    It was later proved that he had nothing to do with JonBenet's case but the press revived all the details of the story in 2006, 10 years after she was killed. And if a suspect was to be charged today for that murder, they would revive it again.
    You are also forgetting that with each passing year, a new generation of newcomers: teenagers. People who were too young at the time but now are at the age of curiosity and tend to get interested in the case. A 10 yr-old then is now a 16 year old and 16 yr-olds have big dreams of making a difference and wanting to change the world for the better, starting with exposing injustices.
    Maddie has become the relevant historic figure they made her out to be, don't doubt it. I think David Cameron is fully aware of that and I don't think he'll be pleased to have his name dragged into this.
