Let's not forget yet another McCann firm of detectives Hogan International and how the McCanns wanted to FOCUS ON THEIR DEFENCE I would suggest by deflecting everyone from what they really did, had Maddie kidnapped to cash in. Even within the last few days we have their idiot Mr Krugel back on the scene, looking for Maddie's body. Then we had another who we know is in their pay, the barmy Mr Correia, attorney for Leonor Cipriano who says Goncalo's men beat her up and he turned a blind eye, do you believe that? The MuckCanns want you to! My comments are in green.
Oh the complex web we weave, when first we set out to deceive!...
The court of Portimão shall pronounce today on the request for the extension of the secrecy of Justice on the case concerning Madeleine McCann, the English girl that vanished last May 3, from the resort of Praia da Luz, in the Algarve, where she was spending her holidays with her parents.
The first suspect of the case, the Luso-British Robert Murat, has taken this legal status last year, in May 14, so it is today that the eight months deadline foreseen by the Law is ending. The Public Prosecution did advance the exceptional complexity of the process to justify the request for the extension of the deadline.
In addition to Robert Murat, the father and the mother of the child who are now in England, Gerry and Kate McCann were also made formal suspects.
New company questioned
Few days after having announced the replacement of the Spanish detectives, Metodo 3, by Hogan International, a British company, the McCanns are already criticized for their choice. It's the British company itself that reported to the British press that they have no experience in this type of investigation, being themselves almost exclusively devoted in the locating of missing heirs. So they would be pretty good at "locating" witnesses for the McCanns. They would also be very good at making inquiries into the assets of those people the McCanns would like to sue and make a load of cash out of. The McCanns whole raison de etre! But Mr Hogan is an ex officer with the Met and after suing a newspaper, quickly disappeared from Team McCann. Do you think he might be a police witness against them? I would not be the least surprised to hear that!
The McCanns bring in cold-case detectives to investigate
The McCanns have hired a detective who investigated a 7/7 suicide bomber. Noel Hogan is conducting a "cold case" review.
The former Met detective superintendent, who runs the agency Hogan International, in Farnham said: "I have been reinterviewing witnesses that were out in Portugal at the time."
It is understood these include friends of the McCanns.
Hogan International was investigating Jermaine Lindsay in the run-up to the 7 July attacks in London in 2005 after a bank became alarmed by his spending patterns
New detectives hired by the McCanns are criticized
A former Scotland Yard detective hired to search for Madeleine McCann is conducting a private murder investigation to discredit police evidence against her parents. Now who could have guessed the McCanns were into smearing and discrediting the Police "evidence AGAINST them". The Police have evidence that they were immediately telling lies about the shutter/window being jemmied open. The Portuguese Prosecutor has just told us they were telling lies about checking their children every 30 minutes, THEY DID NOT. Gerry McCann gave a statement to the police the following day 4 May 2007 saying he and Kate entered the apartment to check on their children via the front door with their key. But on 10 May gave another statement and said he was wrong about that, actually, they both entered by the rear patio door that THEY LEFT OPEN. Careful Kate immediately contradicted Gerry the following day, she said she entered to check the children via the open patio door. But in all other respects their statements read like the utterings of a couple of parrots, word for word entirely similar. Including how Madeleine apparently complained to both of them with the same words at breakfast that morning, "why did you not come last night when me and the twins were crying". Then we have the Smith family who believe it was Gerry McCann they saw carrying Madeleine off towards the beach around 10 pm that night. Kate raises the erm "alarm" at around 10 pm, maybe Gerry was rather breathless at that point. Now this is just a brief summary of some of the serious evidence against Kate and Gerry McCann that they were quite obviously involved in the disappearance of their daughter and were immediately telling the police contradictory and unhelpful lies. So, how did they think Mr Hogan was going to DISCREDIT THIS EVIDENCE AGAINST THEM. Their problem is they have always lived in a fantasy world of believing they can tell us all they are model parents, and we will all just say, Oh OK then, now how much would you like for your Defence Fighting Fund to fight all these odious policemen in Portugal and UK who are just trying to fit you up, quite obviously!
But last night fears were raised that Noel Hogan might not be up to the job.
Mr Hogan, who runs a private detective agency, has re-interviewed British witnesses including the McCanns holiday friends.
He is also understood to have gone through the McCanns’ own statements in minute detail with the couple. That must have been a difficult taks for him. Did he have both of Gerry's conflicting statements or a new one, written by?? When the McCanns attended their Brussels "seminar" (to lecture MEPs about how Amber Alert would obviously have "saved" Madeleine, apparently) their "statements" got mysteriously leaked at the same time. The gloves are off with the Portuguese Police roars Clarence. But this was at a time when Rebelo was in charge of the investigation and there as absolutely nothing being released to the press from the inquiry. The statements were leaked from Spain and it later appeared to transpire that these were not actually the police statements (how could they be, the PJ had those). They were further statements that Kate and Gerry had given to Metodo 3. So, I would suggest Mr Hogan was even being duped when he was going through these apparent statements with the McCanns. He was not being allowed to see the duplicity and lies contained within the original statements taken by the Portuguese Police where Gerry even starts to argue with himself.
In a startling twist, Kate and Gerry’s lawyers have ordered that their own inquiry into Madeleine's disappearance, while on holiday in Portugal last May, should focus on the theory that the three-year-old was killed and her body hidden.
Hogan International, which specialises in asset investigations,(the McCanns like detectives who can pry into other peoples' assets to see if they are worth suing. Bit like Metodo 3, we were all nonplussed, why "Fraud investigators" to look for a missing child, because actually they are good at smelling out money and getting some offensivev dirt on those they wish to discredit for their paymaster, like erm, Robert Murat and Goncalo Amaral, perhaps? Even me! ) is taking over the case after the McCanns benefactors voiced dismay at the lack of tangible progress made by the Spanish agency Metodo 3. If you were only instructed to place listening devices to Robert Murat's car, stalk Goncalo Amaral and gather some dirt on him, make criminal allegations against hm and try and get witnesses to back it up (like Leonor Cipriano for example, convicted child murderer )find some disreputable people who were prepared to say what the McCanns wanted to hear, you probably would not be making much progress in finding Madeleine!
Sources close to the inquiry say the two firms have a history of rivalry after previously clashing over conflicting investigations. Maybe one attempting to be reputable (Hogan) and one who always saw things from Gerry McCanns point of view from day one, Mr Marco of Metodo 3. I have never looked for a missing child and know nothing about paedophiles so I did some research on them on the internet! It is almost like he was taking the McCanns ill gotten gains with one hand and having a good laugh at them /giving them a good slap with the other. Did they actually instruct him to say he would bring Maddie home for Christmas or was he having another pop at his paymasters? Maybe he was trying to blackmail them and say I do not want £50,000 per month for this, try trebling it. Is that why we were being told at the time that Mr Kennedy and the Fund were paying him??
In an exclusive interview with the Sunday Express, Mr Hogan revealed that his previous experience of missing people cases was limited to tracing beneficiaries of wills. He also admitted that despite the high profile of the Madeleine investigation, his 12-strong team of former detectives and ex-SAS men were already handling around 5,000 cases.
Speaking from his office in a rundown tower block in Aldershot, Hants, Mr Hogan refused to say how much he was being paid. He said: ‘I don’t want to become part of the circus surrounding Madeleine. I am not allowed to go into operational detail and I just do what I am told. Of course, Clarence Mitchell has always been very particular to point out that he will not discuss "operational detail" of what "our" investigators are doing. Well that "our" would seem to mean, Clarence Mitchell, that you take ownership of fraudulent activities, that tell the public Maddie is being looked for with their money, but in reality, that is just a lie. Bent witnesses and people to sue are being looked for, to discredit the police and make the McCanns/you too rich!
‘We deal with all matters of investigation, but it is true that normally the missing people we deal with are those who have inherited something and then disappeared. We have never dealt with a missing child.
‘I am not going to boast about success rates like Metodo 3, because that did nobody a favour. We have one office and there are 12 people who work here. If I need to I can bring other people in.
‘When the police have a big case they do not stop investigating all the others they are working on.
‘I have a lot of people who I know who are ex-policemen and know how to handle a criminal investigation.
‘The Portuguese police have put a complete closedown on any facts. Well then who did keep briefing the press, or need we ask! Normally in this country you would have a liaison officer with the family.’
Another former Scotland Yard officer, who has given unofficial advice to the McCanns, from Rothley, Leicestershire, last night voiced his concern at the appointment. He said: I cannot understand why they have chosen to go with Mr Hogan because he simply does not have the resources or the back-up to conduct a major investigation.
The advice I have given to the McCanns was to urge them to request a meeting with Scotland Yard and to ask them to take over the British side of the investigation. The Yard has a very sophisticated and well-resourced kidnap squad, which deals with more than 300 abductions a year, far more than any other force in Britain. Forces from around the world turn to them for advice.
My view is that the McCanns should not waste money with private investigators but should get the best police in Britain on the job.
Why have the McCanns never taken his advice and asked British Police to look for Madeleine, accepted the likes of Mr Hogan and all the others are just a waste of time? Well we know the answer to that!
I think the role of Leicestershire Police is confused. At first they sent officers to Portugal to offer liaison assistance to the McCanns but now it appears they are investigating them on behalf of the Portuguese. It has become a mess. What he is saying here is that liaison officers are given to families who are the victims of serious crime. So Leicester Police went out there and they provided them. Kate lost her temper with them after they asked her "Where is Maddie". Of course that is not acting in the role of supporting her as a victim, that is acting against her as a suspect. That is what this officer means by it has become "a mess". It is difficult to a force to suddenly have to change tack in this way, hence SOCA being brought in to assist in what is obviously a very complex investigation including very major fraud. CEOP too, the division specialising in sexual abuse of children. None of this looks the least bit promising for what Gerry McCann repeatedly tells us "there is absolutely no evidence that Madeleine has come to any harm". Coming from a man who a witness heard within an hour of her disappearance telling his relatives on his mobile, Maddie had been "abducted by a gang of Portuguese Paedophiles" and given that he has not seen his daughter (we assume) for three years, come May, that is a very perverse observation to make to say the least!
Last night Mr Hogan retorted: I was in Surrey Police for four years and the Met after that. I finished top of my CID course but decided to leave to start my own business.
I am not a disgraced former policeman. I deal in professional investigations and I have been doing this a long time.
Control Risks Group, which is advising the investigation on behalf of the McCanns billionaire backer Brian Kennedy, are also reported have taken on a larger role.
But no significant new lines of inquiry are being examined and, despite an overwhelming response to their Christmas appeal, the McCanns have been advised to focus on their own defence.
A source close to the family said: The investigation is working towards a resolution and we have to consider that Madeleine may have been murdered. So maybe feeding the notion that Madeleine is dead, cashing in on that by suing people when you know that could never be proved is a good means of defending yourself from an even more sinister crime, having your daughter abducted so that you can kill to birds with one stone, get rid of a child you no longer want and make a fortune in the process. IMO this is the smokescreen, this is what the McCanns have been doing all this for. Including paying for a really sick "poster campaign" to feed some pretty sick killings scenarios to the public, all designed to throw them off the scent. Believe in a stranger abduction, believe that abduction did not happen, but it did IMO and they arranged it.
I would ask people to just ponder a few things, Tony Bennett stalking and harassing the McCanns and repeatedly insisting THERE WAS NO ABDUCTION THEY KILLED MADELEINE, then have a look at the reputation of Tony Bennett. Buy my leaflets and READ THE TRUTH. But when you read his leaflets it was a pack of ill judged lies! Assertions with absolutely no evidence to back them up. So who was getting a cut out of "sales" - Team McCann. Just ponder one more thing, who is the most credible and reasonable witness you could listen to, who would not lie before a Portuguese Judge, Mr Menezes, the Prosecutor. HE SAID THERE IS A 50 50 CHANCE MADELEINE MAY STILL BE ALIVE AND HE SAID THE MCCANNS COULD HAVE BEEN CHARGED WITH KINDAPPING / TRAFFICKING HER. That, I would suggest is the truth and why there is an ongoing investigation in the UK as we try to find her, if she is still alive.
We have been working to the theory she may have been killed and all the possible scenarios are being considered.
Of course we hope very much that she is alive but nothing can be ruled out.
