Now that things are being played at the highest political level, we will sit and watch.

Meanwhile we will leave for the consideration and analysis of our readers, a 2009 document about UK’s involvement in Operation Task or what we call the Maddie case.

  1. Last night, we received a comment from Anne Guedes which we didn’t publish because, by sheer coincidence was a link to the Operation Task debrief:

    “AnneGuedes has left a new comment on your post "Fat-shaming":

    Posted by AnneGuedes to Textusa at 17 Nov 2017, 00:30:00”

    It’s quite a coincidence because we found the document on Tuesday (Nov 14) with a random search.

    It wasn’t being discussed on Twitter although one twitter had the extract naming Gold group members.

  2. Page 14 is the eye opener,Portugal contacted (4/5th May)to ask them to invite the brit police over? or have I got that wrong.

    1. Anonymous 17 Nov 2017, 13:45:00,

      The Brit police decided they were needed and offered their services and so brokered a request from Portugal:

      "As no request had been received from the Portuguese police, the force contacted the FCO and through them offered the services of the FLOs and the incident room to the Portuguese authorities. This led to a request by email from the Portuguese police on Friday, 4 May for the deployment of officers to support the family in Portugal. This was quickly followed by section 26 Police Act approval from the Secretary of State and the officers were deployed the following day, which was the Saturday of a bank holiday weekend."


      "In the absence of a clear policy and procedures it seems that, as Leicestershire Constabulary had already brokered a request from the Portuguese and a section 26 had been issued, they has, in effect, put themselves ‘in play’ and others assumed that they had responsibility for providing the UK response."

    2. Hi Textusa,So in effect,the UK intervention by the Ambassador,John Buck,meeting the family on behalf of the UK Government Foreign Office,guaranteed UK Police a front row seat on the Investigation,by the Portugal PJ,being caught off guard by this action?
      So who informed the contact with the Foreign Office,Sky News or a family representative,as Mr Buck travelled by Road for over Three Hours,to be in Prai Da Luiz? Madeleine had been reported missing less than Six hrs and this level of "Officialdom"was at a Families disposal?
      How much did this "Operation Task" has cost and who footed that Bill,oh the UK Tax payer as normal,a Forty odd page document would cost a few pounds to say the least,imagine the hours of work formulating all that evidence of procedures,within Two years,unknown by the UK Public?
      As has been stated by numerous people,something had happened that needed to be Covered Up in Portugal and Textusa doesn't believe that"Paedophilia" is related to Madeleine's disappearance?But"Swinging"by Adults present throughout a large contingement of person's had gathered for a specific reason in
      late April,early May 2007?
      The family did use "Paedophiles" knowingly in regard to Madeleine's Abduction,thesis,CEOP and actually profiled an arquido as a chief suspect into a specific line of inquiry,that had smudged finger prints of,Lori Campbell,Clarence Mitchell,Soham Murders from the UK?
      The Metropolitan Police Service,affiliated to the"Gold Group"has instigated Operation Grange,remit abduction for over Seven years and in 2007/08 along with Interpol stated,No Paedophile gangs was operating in Europe,when Madeleine disappeared?
      Yet it has been noted by the Metropolitan Police Service,Belgium,Christophers story that "Paedophiles"were operational throughout Europe when Madeleine had disappeared,so,which reported version is right?
      Surely they cannot both be right,Ten years after the event on Madeleine's disappearance,it was the Dead Widows Paedophile husband that Dunnit after all?

    3. I just posted the link in case somebody were interested, Textusa, I wasn't sure that you or somebody else hadn't done it already. I put that link on my blog months ago, but I didn't discover it, someone else did !

    4. "As no request had been received from the Portuguese police, the force contacted the FCO..."
      Well, Gonçalo Amaral requested the basic, elementary informations about the group in general and the MC in particular on the 4th early hour, calling the NCA liaison officer, Glen Pounder. He never got any answer !

    5. Anne Guedes,

      All we can say is that we're glad we have only found it now as we believe that if we earlier we wouldn't have had the "maturity" this document needs for it to be read and be fully understood.

      Quite a gem.

  3. In this case it should have been called Operation Mask...

    1. Anon post 08.54.00.
      Interesting you should mention"Operation Mask"?
      According to a poster CMoMM,the flight details given by the McCann family was that they had travelled as a "group booking"along with the Payne family and Diane Webster? yet according to the flight details of the McCann Family were.
      Gerry McCann 28 April 2007
      Kate Healy 29 April 2007
      M McCann 30 April 2007
      S McCann 1 May 2007
      A McCann 2 May 2007
      Which can only conclude that the entire McCann Family were all united by the 3 May 2007,the day that Madeleine then disappeared from apartment 5a Ocean Club and has not been seen since,reported missing by her parents?
      So if the above is True,Madeleine was never seen on board a bus with the Payne family/McCann family on the 28 April as,according to the Flight details Madeleine only departed the UK on 2 May but with whome,as both her parents were in Portugal?

    2. Anonymous 18 Nov 2017, 14:26:00,

      Those dates have a very simple explanation for appearing that way and it is something that any regular user of Excel knows: sequential change of value by dragging of a cell into others.

      Whoever was filling the data into this spreadsheet, typed the correct date in front of Gerry's name: 28 April 2007.

      Then dragged that value to the ones below (in front, respectively of the other names) thinking that date would be repeated but Excel assumes, when one does that, that one intends the return of a sequence, so for each cell appears the day after the one referred in the cell above and the one before the cell below.

      That said, if there was a sixth name, below A McCann, then the date in front of that name would have been 3 May 2007 and so on.

    3. Hi Textusa,thanks for your explanation,booking form?
      I know Ten years has passed,but security issues may have not been as keen,but spelling of a name to Travel,surely has to be correct to match the passport holder?
      Was Kate,Healy or McCann,eg Creche sheets,flight details?

  4. What I found interesting about this report is the Appendix 1, it was also interesting to read on page 17 where it starts "There has only ever been one other case".

    The media seems to have gone quiet about this case.


    Madeleine McCann: Police hunt waitress believed to be mysterious 'woman in purple'

    THE “woman in purple” being sought by Scotland Yard detectives in Bulgaria in connection with the Madeleine McCann case worked with her husband at the Ocean Club resort on the Algarve in Portugal.
    By James Murray Exclusive
    PUBLISHED: 00:01, Sun, Nov 19, 2017

    Waitress Luisa Todorov, 58, is believed to be the mystery woman seen by two witnesses standing outside apartment 5a of the Ocean Club from where Madeleine was taken 10 years ago.
    She has become the focus of Yard inquiries for months as officers want to know if she saw anything suspicious on the night of Madeleine’s abduction from Praia da Luz when she was aged just three.
    One witness saw her standing by a lamp post just outside the apartment at 8pm on May 3, 2007 and another saw her about half an hour later nearby.
    Luisa’s husband Stefan Todorov, 50, was working at the Tapas bar, where the McCanns and their seven holiday friends were dining when Madeleine was abducted.
    Detectives working on the £12million Operation Grange inquiry have spent months trying to track down the couple, who are being treated as significant potential witnesses.
    Spanish criminologist Heriberto Janosch Gonzalez, who has investigated the case for 10 years, said: “I have been combing through all the police files trying to identify who the woman in purple could be.
    “It has been widely reported that Yard officers are in Bulgaria.
    “Examining all the known statements it seems highly likely the police are seeking the Todorovs as they are the only known people with a clear link to Bulgaria.
    “I have been unable to trace them in Portugal and believe they could have moved away.
    “It is widely known that many workers at the Ocean Club were made redundant so it is possible they went to Bulgaria seeking work.”
    The couple gave statements to Portuguese police five days after the kidnapping as part of routine Portuguese inquiries.
    Luisa’s statement said she worked day shifts at the Millennium restaurant, where the McCann family had gone on the first evening of their holiday with their friends.
    Scotland Yard said they could not give a running commentary on investigations carried out by officers working on Operation Grange.
    In August 2007 a British woman reported seeing a child who looked mile Madeleine at Varna airport in Bulgaria, but the information was very sketchy and did not check out.


    1. Pantomime season has begun early.

    2. We wouldn’t say this was fake news, at least in terms of intention.

      In terms of content it’s absurd but that we think is exactly the point.

      With this story, James Murray has killed completely the Woman-in-Purple.

      If there was one thing essential for the other side to be able to sell abduction is that the perpetrator(s) must remain mythical, some uncertain someone who no one has been or will ever be able to find.

      That’s why when “key witness” appeared, it blew away the human trafficking gang theory.

      Now, Luísa Todorov is named and that has just sent HMS Please to the bottom.

      HMS Please being the ‘credible’ Bulgarian Jane Tanner doppelganger theory.

      Wasn’t the Woman-in-Purple’s husband a paedo who has passed away?

      Or, in other words, inform the other side that they have to come up with a better story, this one just won’t do.

    3. A resident from Portugal has posted on the J forum,that in all likelihood the woman in question is in residence there,Portugal that is,lending support to your reading of the situation.

    4. Anonymous 19 Nov 2017, 13:30:00,

      Even though censored, one can deduce from her statement that in 2007 Luísa Todorava lived in Almadena (NW of Luz).

    5. About Pillowman's fantastic detective work, let us just say that we came across the Todorovs the minute we started doing research about Woman-in-Pink.

      It was an easy process to look at the only Bulgarian on OC staff list.

      We didn't think then they would be named for the reasons we have expressed above: naming them kills the Woman-in-Pink theory.

      We remind readers that Pillowman has been given by the British Broadcasting Service, via Richard Bilton, the same credibility that BBC has given to Sir Paul Stephenson, Simon Foy, Jim Gamble, Clarence Mitchell, José Sócrates and Robert Murat, just to name those who came immediately to our mind.

    6. Ah well back to the drawing board with the crayons,whose next on our list,surely there must be other people who are"potentional witnesses",I mean we can't now be down to the Tapas7/9 and Kate,Gerry already,what about that chappie,Mugabe,he seems suspicious?

  6. Fake news (with names abusively quoted and of course nothing to support it) by a self-proclaimed profiler. Just disgusting.

  7. Hi, Textusa,Smithman/Creche Dad/Gerry was supposed to have been"Identified"by Two of the Irish Family after leaving Kelly's Bar 22.00,3 May 2007,as per Crime Watch,DCI Andy Redwood,October 2013?

    Purple Woman,was seen by a former arquido's parent at 20.05 same date,who also confirmed her Son's whereabouts,the same evening?
    Jeremy Wilkens sees a Woman in a "Purple Top"close to the apartment block 20.30pm whilst taking his Son in a pram to get him to sleep?
    Dave Edgar,mockumentary,has,Gerry,Jez at 21.15 pm unable to confirm which side of the street,they were on,with JT not being spotted walking past them? Then JT spots 21.20pm the Abductor/Creche Dad/arquido at the top of the Street becoming quite Emotional,penny dropped on Madeleine's welfare?
    What sort of "Hoax" has been played out to Millions of people over the past Ten Years with regard to Madeleine McCann?
    Millions of Pounds has been spent on Court cases, Documentaries,Police Investigations,Private detectives employed by the Family,leading to what,A pact of silence by the Tapas 7/9,Kate,Gerry?
    The Assistant Commander of the Metropolitan Police service and Former Commanders have openly supported the family's quest of belief that Madeleine may still be alive,whilst at the same time ignoring the"Inteligence evidence"of Police Trained Officer Martin Grime,his EVRD,Blood Dogs,Eddie,Keela, with an outstanding success rate?
    Who or What are you supposed to believe,but is that the main point,to deceive or deception from the Truth,to evade Justice?

    1. my post 16.10.00,Former waitress-Lady in Purple,was employed to work five days a week,with Sunday,Monday off.
      So if Madeleine arrived with her family on Saturday 28 April 2007,Mrs Todrov could have made contact on only Four days and Madeleine was in the Creche from 09.00 until 19.00 on those days?
      So Mrs Todrov had Four Hrs to execute the master plan?

    2. Anonymous 19 Nov 2017, 19:47:00,

      Luísa Todorov says:

      "When questioned she says that she does not have a clear image of the girl's parents, only having briefly caught sight of them inside the restaurant.


      She heard about the events on the night in question, when her husband - who works in the same restaurant as the witness told her that he had heard that a small girl had disappeared from the resort. On the following day in the restaurant, she was informed by colleagues about the events as well as from television news, which confirmed that it was the girl whom she had seen in the restaurant."

      According to the McCann version this could only have happened on Saturday night, the only one they say they ever were at the Mill.

      Luísa says very clearly she's had no contact with Maddie other than that.

    Former Met officer jailed for misconduct

    A former Metropolitan Police officer was jailed for 14 months after pleading guilty to misconduct in public office.

    Sam Azouelos, a former detective constable, acted as a paid informant for The Sun newspaper between July 2006 and April 2010 the Met said in a statement.

    The 35-year-old was also ordered to pay £4,400 in costs.

    Former Met officer sentenced to 14 months in prison after pleading guilty to misconduct in a public office:”


    “She had told the judge that police officer Sam Azouelos had sold private information about McFadden to News of the World journalist Dan Evans.”

    Police investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann are scouring Bulgaria for a waitress they believe could be the 'woman in purple' last seen outside her apartment

    - Detectives hunting for Madeleine McCann have travelled to Bulgaria
    - They are hoping to trace a woman they believe could provide critical information
    - The mystery 'woman in purple' is thought to be waitress Luisa Todorov, 58
    - Along with her husband Stefan, 50, she worked at the tapas bar at the Ocean Club where the McCanns and their friends were dining when Maddie was taken

    Police investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann have gone to Bulgaria in search of the 'woman in purple' - a figure who is keeping the operation alive.

    Waitress Luisa Todorov, 58, is believed to be the mystery woman seen by two witnesses standing outside apartment 5a of the Ocean Club from where Madeleine was taken 10 years ago.

    One witness saw her standing by a lamp post just outside the apartment at 8pm on May 3, 2007 and another saw her about half an hour later nearby.

    Mrs Todorov's husband Stefan, 50, was working at the tapas bar at the Ocean Club where the McCanns and their seven holiday friends were dining when Madeleine was abducted.

    Mr Todorov had been in Portugal since November 2002 and also worked as a car painter.

    The couple, who both worked at the restaurant 500 metres away from the apartment block, gave statements to police five days after Madeleine's disappearance.

    They both denied having any knowledge of the case and have not been spoken to again for over a decade.

    Heriberto Janosch González, who has been investigating the case for 10 years, is convinced Mrs Todorov is the mystery 'woman in purple'.

    He said: 'I have been combing through all the police files trying to identify who the woman in purple could be.

    'It has been widely reported that Yard officers are in Bulgaria.

    'Examining all the known statements it seems highly likely the police are seeking the Todorovs. They are the only known people with a clear link to Bulgaria.'

    According to their witness statements Mrs Todorov finished her shifts at 6pm while her husband started at 8pm until midnight having worked as a car painter during the day.

    Jenny Murat, 79, whose son Robert was the first official suspect, but was formally cleared of suspicion in 2008, has told how she noticed a woman outside the apartment in Praia da Luz, which Maddie vanished from in 2007.

    Talking of when she spotted the woman in purple, Mrs Murat said: 'I saw the woman standing on the corner of the street.

    'She caught my eye because she was dressed in purple-plum clothes. It struck me as strange.

    'It's so usual for anyone, particularly a woman, to be standing alone on the street in our resort, just watching a building.

    'The next morning, we heard that a little girl had gone missing, and I later told police about the woman I'd seen right outside. I didn't recognise her and don't have a clue who she is, but she seems a bit suspicious.'


  10. (Cont.)

    In the past few months, the Grange team — now down to four detectives from a peak of 31 — has been criss-crossing Europe trying to locate the woman.

    Their budget had been due to run out in September, but officers are understood to have used the 'woman in purple' line of investigation to persuade the Home Office — which is financing the inquiry from central government funds — to grant a six-month extension.

    The £154,000 agreed will allow inquiries to continue until March, taking the total spent on Operation Grange near to £12 million.

    During the past six years, a string of theories and suspects have come and gone.

    Variously, the spotlight has fallen on a group of British contract cleaners working in the resort, a smelly, pot-bellied man, a burglary gang posing as charity collectors, child-traffickers and gypsies.

    Operation Grange has been one of the longest, most high-profile and costly police investigations in history.

    Launched in May 2011, officers have sifted (and translated) 40,000 documents produced by Portuguese police who conducted the initial investigation, and by the eight teams of private detectives who have worked on the case.

    Some 600 'persons of interest' have been examined and 'sightings' of Madeleine — in Brazil, India, Morocco and Paraguay, on a German plane and in a New Zealand supermarket — assessed.

    The Portuguese investigation of Madeleine's disappearance was criticised by the British authorities as being not fit for purpose.

    Scotland Yard began an investigative review into the disappearance in 2011, on the orders of then-Prime Minister David Cameron.

    However it is understood Met detectives have been relying on Portuguese transcripts of key interviews with British witnesses, rather than conducting their own.

    Operation Grange has conducted no formal witness interviews with Gerry or Kate McCann or the seven friends they dined with on the night Madeleine disappeared.

    1. Hi Textusa,please forgive me as I must be a"Thicko"The Metropolitan Police Service have interviewed over 600 person's of interest,yet cannot be a**ed to interview,the person's who claim to have seen an alive Madeleine on 3 May 2007,Kate,Gerry,David,Catriona,or did CB only spot the Twins?
      DCI Andy Redwood has supposed to have interviewed the"Creche Nanny"high tea,Tapas Bar,while all the remaining Tapas 7/9 were being filmed having Tea at Paradisio,"So it couldn't have been any of us"that dunnit?
      The ECHR result must be due,with all this sudden interest in Madeleine McCann disappearance,you know the abduction espoused from the parents mouths?


    Mystery 'woman in purple' sought by Madeleine McCann police identified as waitress

    Scotland Yard detectives want to speak to a female dressed in purple who was seen by two people standing outside the youngster’s apartment

    A criminologist claims to have identified a mystery woman being sought by British police in connection with Madeleine McCann’s disappearance.

    Scotland Yard detectives want to speak to a female dressed in purple who was seen by two people standing outside the youngster’s apartment.

    It was claimed earlier this month that officers from Operation Grange had travelled to Bulgaria in a bid to track down the woman.

    Now criminologist Heriberto Janosch Gonzalez claims to have identified the woman as Bulgarian waitress Luisa Todorov.

    The 58-year-old was working with her husband at the Ocean Club resort in Praia da Luz when Madeleine vanished in 2007.

    Luisa and her husband Stefan, 50, gave statements to police five days after the three-year-old’s disappearance.

    They both denied having any knowledge of the case and have not been spoken to again for over a decade.

    British police are now scouring the globe for the pair so they can ask them if they saw anything suspicious.

    Luisa is believed to be the woman seen standing by a lamp post just outside the apartment at 8pm on May 3, 2007.

    Another eyewitness told police they saw the same “woman in purple” about half an hour later nearby.

    Spanish criminologist Gonzalez, who has investigated the case for 10 years, is convinced Luisa is the mystery woman.

    He said: “I have been combing through all the police files trying to identify who the woman in purple could be.

    “It has been widely reported that Yard officers are in Bulgaria.

    “Examining all the known statements it seems highly likely the police are seeking the Todorovs.

    “They are the only known people with a clear link to Bulgaria.

    “I have been unable to trace them in Portugal and believe they could have moved away.

    “It is widely known that many workers at the Ocean Club were made redundant so it is possible they went to Bulgaria seeking work.”


  12. (Cont.)

    Madeleine’s parents Kate and Gerry, from Rothley, Leics, were dining in a tapas restaurant when she vanished.

    Operation Grange was set up in 2011 following widespread criticism of the bungled Portuguese police investigation.

    Detectives have made no arrests despite investigating 60 people of interest and taking over 1,300 statements.

    Officers have also investigated 560 lines of enquiry and even dug up parts of Praia da Luz in 2014 in a search for clues.

    There have been nearly 9,000 reported sightings of Madeleine around the world since her disappearance.

    Operation Grange was massively scaled back in October 2015, with just four detectives left working on the case.

    In September it received another £154,000 in Home Office funding to cover another six months.

    Earlier this year Kate said the £12million probe: “It might not be as quick as we want but there’s real progress being made.

    “I think we need to take heart from that.”


    Madeleine McCann: Mystery 'woman in purple' sought by Met police identified as waitress

    Fifty-eight-year-old reportedly interviewed days after child disappeared, but not in decade since

    Independent Staff
    4 hours ago

    A Spanish criminologist says he has identified a woman sought by police in connection to Madeleine McCann's disappearance.

    Scotland Yard investigators are reportedly looking to speak to a woman who was seen dressed in purple standing outside the family's apartment in Praia da Luz, Lagos, in 2007.

    Criminologist Heriberto Gonzalez said he believed the woman to be Bulgarian waitress Luisa Todorov.

    The 58-year-old and her husband were working at the Ocean Club resort in the Portuguese civil parish when the three-year-old disappeared.

    The couple were interviewed days after Madeleine went missing and denied any knowledge of the case. Investigators have reportedly not spoken to them since.

    Mr Gonzalez – who has investigated the case for 10 years – said reports that police were searching Bulgaria had convinced him Ms Todorov was the woman being sought.

    “Examining all the known statements it seems highly likely the police are seeking the Todorovs," he told the Mirror.

    “They are the only known people with a clear link to Bulgaria."

    He said he had not been able to track the couple in Portugal and it was likely that the couple moved back to Bulgaria after a number of workers at the Ocean Club were made redundant.

    Madeleine vanished from her family’s holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in Portugal on 3 May, 2007.

    Her disappearance sparked one of the most high-profile police investigations of recent times.

    In 2015 Scotland Yard cut the number of detectives working on the case from 29 to four, but the investigation was granted £154,000 in October to pursue "a new person of significance"

    2. Shining in Luz says on Justice Forum blog that he has a source who says she still lives in Alamadena and says source sees her as she gets the bus to work.

  15. Heriberto Janosch González: "I have been combing through all the police files trying to identify who the woman in purple could be." What ??? This would be funny if not so gob-smackingly unbelievable!!!! Has he been living on another planet??

    1. Wistle,was Heriberto a pro McCann taking a vast interest in people going in and around the Apartment block,trying to stop people from visiting the Ocean club development. trying to piece together what they had read from the PJ Files,Textusa website,what was, was not possible,sightings etc?
      If this is the same person,you wouldn't need reminding whose side he would take on"Factual Evidence",perhaps he knows Mr Geraherty from the Golf club/Church keys,Gerry's Brother John, you know it's a small World in Portugal wanting a"Joined up investigation"exoneration to a Crime,aka dodgy Dave Cameron,Rebekah Brooks,Leveson?

    2. Exactly - the more women in purple (different sizes, different nationalities, different ages) the harder to pinpoint the right one! Confusion is a disguise.

  16. This long armed pillow abductor is just seeking some kind of official recognition at the cost of unfortunate people whose name is now on red tops. Autism or vanity, he's a plague.

  17. I found this paragraph infuriating to say the least (my capitals): -

    "But despite all efforts made by investigators of both countries, and a tireless campaign by Madeleine's parents to keep her disappearance in the public eye, there was no more CREDIBLE information about what happened to her at the time of the debrief than there was on the evening she disappeared."

    But plenty of INcredible lies to be found in the Tapas Groups statements, plus the alerts of two specialist dogs to items and places linked to the McCanns and no-one else. Subsequent investigations were unable to find anything prior to the McCanns arrival that might explain such alerts.

    But they'll keep on searching and following rubbish leads in the hope of finding a suitable patsy.

    1. Lesly Finn,

      That particular paragraph is quite infuriating... BUT, is it lying?

      Was there more credible information in 2009 than there was for the British Police in the evening she disappeared? We think not.

      They knew then exactly what had happened and knew that same thing when the report was written.

      And all that they knew was credible and it continued to be credible. Credible as in truthful.

      Note, saying all they knew and not saying what they say they knew.

      When they say, as they do say that as objectives they had to "endeavour to ensure the safe recovery of Madeleine" and to "secure and preserve evidence which may assist in the investigation of her abduction and the prosecution of those responsible" then the report's lying path is confirmed.

      That and so many other things that it contains are what makes this report not only interesting but also one very important document to be understood in both its intent and meaning.

    2. Textusa - Sounds intriguing. Are we getting a post on it


    3. K,

      We hope so. But first we have to deal with this latest episode of the Woman-in-Purple.

    4. Hi Textusa,whilst your busy working out Purple Woman,the UK press have Two oily little oiks(Bojo,Gov) caught with their snouts entrenched in the trough over the Brexit campaign? The Press are revealing the shenanigans over the spending to their cronies,AIQ to make Brexit possible,over £7 Million pounds,where AIQ got the best part of One Million pounds commission?

    5. Thanks Textusa I do find myself constantly shaking my head as I read through this, it reminds me a bit of the intentions of Kate's Book when she tried to bring everyone down with her. How many times did they refer to the government ministers (8 was mentioned at one time) putting pressure on the police. And then we had the " we just ignored Interpol" and dealt direct copying them into our correspondence, imagine the outrage if one government dept disrespected another in such a way never mind the international police force. I have to say if I was portuguise I would be very angry that they have been allowed to get away with it


  18. In the UK now,thousands of cases of samples being used for convictions, for drug driving,paternity tests etc are unreliable as evidence!?
    Some tests from 201-2014 by "Private firms"are being discounted as proof of evidence in thousands of cases?
    How many unsafe criminal cases does this effect and it will take years to qualify which tests are safe in that process,affecting unsafe prosecutions ?

    Sergei Malinka is trying to get funding for his book

    1. About
      3rd of May 2007 a little girl disappeared in the Algarve village of Praia da Luz. The search for her continues until the present day.

      Sergey Malinka was born in Russia and immigrated to Portugal in year 2000 in search of better life. In 2007 he with his parents was dragged into McCann saga by Portuguese police. Since then this shadow of a past event followed him for over 10 years. He attempted to live a quiet life trying to move on, getting his life together, but media frenzy kept reappearing continuing to ruin his life and possibility for a calm future. This book is about him and how something potentially insignificant as a missed phone call can changes ones life in a very unexpected way.

    2. Sergey Malinka’s response to a question about book:

      I would like to ask before pledging if his account is going to pander to the parents Abuction story or the truth as it reads from the files. especially taking into account the cadaver & blood dogs findings.

      Hello Karen. Sergey here! The funds from the KS would go for a book production and printing as I am Russian by birth and require some assistance to write this book in English. I am telling my story how all this crap with media and McCanns ruined my life and keep me locked in this story without a closure. I will disclose a lot of facts that i have never shared with anyone during this time.

      I want closure more than anything. for me and my family to have a normal life.
      Thank you for your question.
      Sergey Malinka.

    3. Please take a look at this video on YouTube:

      Blackmail, threats, sounds very interesting!

    4. Our transcript of the video above:

      “Hello, my name is Sergey Malinka and most of you know me as a Russian computer technician that was involved in the disappearance of Madeleine McCann case in 2007 in Praia da Luz.

      The main reason I’m writing this book is that I’m about to become a father, so I don’t want my “fame” to reflect on my child’s life, I want him to have a full, worry-free life, as any parent would.

      The major point of view of public has been formed by the media and a lot of things that they said and published were wrong about me, were quite dishonest, there was a lot of slandering, and facts that weren’t checked, before they published them.

      Why Kickstarter instead of a traditional book publishing methods? Well, it’s quite simple, the book that I’m writing contains a lot of sensitive information, and as we know from the last 10 years whatever you write could be banned from the, from the public access. So, I’ve decided to use the Kickstarter to make sure that the book will be released and people will get it in original state.

      It was very hard for me to actually decide to do it because it’s a very painful time in my life, you know the 10 years has passed, but every time I think about this situation, is just very difficult for me, you know to share this sort of experience with the world.

      Please support my book and you will find out that the most revealing details about my story, the piece of the time that I was involved in all this situation, all the difficulties, the bribing, the threatening, the blackmailing, the defamation and just general aggravation from public that I’ve passed through.

      The reason I want to do it is to make sure it would never happen again to anybody, that if anyone would be in similar situation, they would know what to do, as I didn’t.”

    1. From brief chapter excerpts in link it seems he is very neutral about Mcs - saying how devastating it must have been for them, so I think it’s going to be about him, not them and can’t see any revelations which reflect badly on them.
      Hope I’m wrong.

    2. We have been informed that the name of Sergey Malinka’s son appears twice in the article and were asked to remove it, to respect the child’s privacy. We evidently agree.

      For that reason we have deleted the post and are ‘republishing’ it here:

      New book threatens to expose “lies, bribery, blackmail and defamation” in case of world’s most famous missing person

      It’s called “Madeleine McCann” Collateral Damage and it promises “new facts” in the decade-long mystery over the three-year-old who went missing from a holiday apartment in Praia da Luz.

      But far from setting out to solve the puzzle, the project is designed to set the record straight, says its author - redress some of the consequences of the media circus that has blighted lives since that fateful day in May, 2007.

      Written by Sergey Malinka, the book is essentially his way of trying to move on. The 33-year-old computer technician has just become a father. He wants his two-month-old son (censored) to be able to live a normal life, he told the Resident. He doesn’t want his child to type his father’s name into a search engine in a few years time and simply see hundreds of references to Malinka’s so-called involvement in the disappearance of the world’s most famous missing person.

      Although drawn into the mystery from the start - even being re-interviewed as an arguido (‘formal suspect’) six years later - Malinka has been formally dropped from police inquiries.

      He has in the past also successfully sued for defamation in the press.

      But the shadow of this seemingly endless mystery has blighted his life for far too long.

      The arrival of (censored), along with belief that “still there are no conclusive leads” has led him to take the initiative and write his story.

      In Malinka’s online pitch on KickStarter - a kind of crowd-funding platform for creative projects - he explains that he has chosen this way of getting the book out as “we know, from the past 10 years, that whatever you write could be banned from the public access”.

      He believes KickStarter will ensure “the book will be released and people will get it in the original state”.

      It has “a lot of sensitive information”, he added, along with “the most revealing details about my story” … “all the difficulties, the bribery, the threatening, the blackmailing, the defamation and just general aggravation from public that I have passed through”.

      Indeed, the Russian who now has Portuguese nationality says he hopes the story - edited by local resident and author David S. Jones - will help anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation in the future and “doesn’t know what to do”.

      In Malinka’s case, the past led him to the depths of despair, he explains.

      “For 10 years I've kept quiet hoping to see some closure, but now I see that without my input this would never stop”.

      By ‘this’ he refers to the slurs against his name that remain ‘out there’ in the ether, unchallenged.

      “Madeleine McCann” Collateral Damage means to change all that, and anyone interested in supporting this initiative can read more about it via:

  22. Thanks for the latest updates about the new book as I've not been following the case for very long so some names I'm not familiar on how they fit into the story. I had a read of your post "Outrageous" this was so interesting your thoughts in 2014, it was particularly interesting to read your reply comments to how the game was/is being played out, this case confuses me but your blog demonstrates how the game is being played. Thank you


    I'm not Madeleine McCann case "woman in purple" insists waitress after criminologist's claim

    After a criminologist identified Luisa Todorov as the mystery women police are said to be searching for, she claims to have "no idea about" any such person

    The hunt continues for the “woman in purple” in the Madeleine McCann probe after a waitress whose name came up insisted: “It wasn’t me.”

    A criminologist claimed to have identified Luisa Todorov as the mystery person police are said to be searching for.

    And we discovered she lives less than a mile from Praia da Luz in the Algarve, where Maddie disappeared.

    Luisa, 58, was working at the resort where the McCanns were staying. But she insisted she is not the woman in purple and has not been approached by Scotland Yard detectives.

    She told the Mirror: “I’ve no idea about any woman in purple. It wasn’t me. I spoke to the police a long time ago about the Madeleine case.

    “I don’t really want to talk about it, nobody around here does, it brings back lots of bad memories.

    “Nobody knows what happened to her. If the British police want to speak to me that’s fine, but I don’t know anything.”

    Two separate witnesses saw the mystery woman in purple standing outside the apartment where three-year-old Maddie was snatched in May 2007.

    Criminologist Heriberto Janosch Gonzalez recently named the woman as Luisa, who now uses her maiden name Camara on social media.

    The restaurant worker, originally from Madeira, gave a statement to Portuguese police five days after Maddie’s disappearance, along with husband Stefan, 50.

    He also worked at the Ocean Club resort, in the kitchens, and is believed to have returned to his native Bulgaria without being quizzed again.

    Both strenuously deny any involvement in Maddie’s abduction and were only interviewed as potential witnesses. The youngster’s parents Kate and Gerry McCann , from Rothley, Leics, have never given up hope of finding their daughter, who would now be 14.

    They were dining with friends in a restaurant near the apartment when she vanished from a ground-floor bedroom.

    Despite a massive police investigation, there have been no confirmed sightings of Maddie in more than a decade.

    Officers have made no arrests, despite investigating 60 people of interest and taking more than 1,300 witness statements. More than 500 lines of enquiry have been probed and areas of Praia da Luz dug up in the search for clues.

    Scotland Yard’s Operation Grange was massively scaled back in 2015. There are now four detectives working on the case.

    In September it emerged £154,000 in Home Office funding had been granted to continue the £12million probe for another six months.

    1. Hi Textusa,Noticed that No mention of the Dead Widows"Paedophile Husband"since Mr Luisa Todorov named in the press as"Woman In Purple"?
      Afraid of being sued for slander MSM,now the"Widow"has been found? So "Bungling British Police" are on a jaunt to Bulgaria to link a sighting in Varna May 2007,to the Woman In Purple,seen outside of apartment 5a Ocean Club on 3 May 2007,so who's left manning the Belgravis Phones,Two out of four,"Don't forget the duty Frees ,from Varna?
      buyer beware,remember the Bungling burglars,DNA from the Four Portugal suspects,telephones blinging,Scotland yard have scrapped some excrement from some very deep barrels of *hit in this missing person case?
      I wonder if the Hollywood Film directors wish to make a film of the bungling of Operation Grange,as arranged by dodgy Dave Cameron and his partner in Crime,the fragrant Red haired Rebekah Brooks,with Marshal PR Coulson and the infamous Murdoch "Wildbunch" clan,Freuds,Yahoo?
