The Home Office has secretly begun a review that could lead to a fresh police inquiry into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.  (now that is very short for theTelegraph)


but hey ho, here it is in full, it does seem to be rather inconsistent with other McCann spin in the Daily Star, four little Yorkshire papers, and then because we had all been ripping into it on Joana Morais, The Sun, OK Gerry, we believe you, The PJs are rubbish, Leicester Police are rubbish and they do not like you much either, now that is one of the few facts :-)))  It is not very secret now is it, lol!

Home Office launches secret review into Madeleine McCann's disappearance

The Home Office has secretly begun a review that could lead to a fresh police inquiry into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

The move follows the release of 2,000 pages of evidence last week which Portuguese detectives are accused of having failed to fully investigate.

According to sources close to the McCanns, Alan Johnson, the Home Secretary, has ordered officials to examine the 'feasibility' of British or Portuguese detectives looking afresh at all the evidence.


Kate and Gerry McCann met with Mr Johnson last year to plead for help in their search for Madeleine, who vanished without trace in May 2007 from a holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal.

The couple have also met with John Yates, the Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner, who has headed up a number of high profile inquiries in recent years.

He is said to be "sympathetic" and to have made "general offers of assistance".

The source said: "The latest we have heard from the Home Office is officials are undertaking a 'scoping exercise' to look into the possibility of a review of the case.

"They are looking at all the options. It is basically a feasibility study.

"Kate and Gerry met with Alan Johnson to request a review is done. Hopefully any political intervention can unlock obstructions that might be in the way."

Pressure is now being put on Portuguese authorities to agree in the first instance to a three-day review of the case that could be held at Interpol's headquarters in Lyon in France.

The McCanns will hope the Home Office can persuade their Portuguese counterparts to co-operate in a case review.

The review – were it to go ahead – would involve British police working with Portuguese counterparts as well as experts in child abduction across other European forces.

The Portuguese police have been heavily criticised for their handling of the case which led to detectives naming the McCanns, both doctors from Leicestershire, as arguidos – or suspects – in the case and accusing them of involvement in her disappearance.

Their arguido status was subsequently lifted and the police investigation shelved.

But with the senior officer in charge Goncalo Amaral now widely discredited and facing financial ruin after being sued for libel by the McCanns over a book he wrote, it may become harder for the Portuguese to refuse the request for a thorough review.

The revelation that possible leads – many passed to Portuguese police by the McCanns' own private detectives – had apparently been ignored will add to the clamour.

Last week, details emerged of a series of possible sightings of Madeleine, who was just three when she vanished.

A further obstacle was removed with the death from stomach cancer two weeks ago of Guilhermino Encarnacao, who was in charge of the Policia Judiciaria in the Algarve.

Mr Encarnacao was convinced Madeleine had died in her parents' apartment and was a major source of a series of off the record briefings to journalists against the McCanns.

A Home Office spokesman said: "We can confirm that the Home Secretary had a private meeting with Kate and Gerry McCann.

"Leicestershire Police stand ready to co-ordinate and complete enquiries if further information comes to light in the UK; or if requested to do so by the Portuguese authorities, who continue to lead on the overall investigation."

The spokesman refused to discuss what talks took place at the meeting or whether there was the chance of a review of the evidence at Interpol.

The spokesman added: "We are not going to comment on the outcome of any private meeting with the McCanns."

Mr Yates was unavailable for comment. He led the cash for honours investigation and was also involved in a new inquiry into the murder of Julie Ward, who was murdered in Kenya in 1988.

Hello

I must admit I did think the place would be redecorated when you reopend LOL x

viv said...

Hello Hope and great to see you back!

Never mind the re-decorating I am talking about abduction of a newspaper article by Gerry McScam lol!

viv said...

Direct quotes from the Home Office, highly unusual. But what was confirmed is that contrary to the spin put forth by Gerry he cannot get rid of Leics Police and the PJ. Most criminals would not even presume to think they can dictate who runs an investigation, but Gerry is not most criminals. He thinks he is special and powerful in a typically narcissistic way. Face it Gerry, you are never going to manipulate things to get yourself a declaration of innocence and police running around looking for your fantasy abductors whilst you make Maddie the Movie and cash in big time like you always planned. Those are the dreams and visions of a sad loser who does not even care about his own children, all tools to be used.

I fail to see how it can be right to just allow this mother to abdicate responsibility for her own child. If she was not coping with him she should have asked SSD for help. How can it be acceptable that she went days at a time without even bothering to see him, that in itself is abuse. Again a wrong signal is being sent to parents here IMO about THEIR responsibilities towards their own children.

Wolverhampton Council hold review of babysitting murder
Ryan Lovell-Hancox was abused and neglected during his stay in the bedsit
A serious internal case review has been started by a West Midlands council after a toddler was horrifically beaten and murdered by his babysitters.

Ryan Lovell-Hancox died in 2008 aged three after suffering more than 70 injuries at the home of his babysitters Christopher Taylor and Kayley Boleyn.

The pair, from Bilston, West Midlands, were found guilty at Wolverhampton Crown Court on Friday.

Wolverhampton City Council said it had to learn lessons from Ryan's death.



The court was told Ryan Lovell-Hancox had more than 70 injuries
"The death of a child under these circumstances gives us all pause for thought about whether there was anything we could or should have done to prevent it," the director for children and young people's services, Roy Lockwood, said.

He added that although Ryan was not listed on the at risk register or on any child protection plan, all the agencies in the city had a responsibility to do their utmost to ensure no child in the city ever dies in similar circumstances.

A four-week trial heard Ryan's mother Amy Hancox, 21, was paying about £40 a week for Taylor and Boleyn to look after Ryan while she decorated her home.

She told the court she had given Ryan to babysitters to look after as she "was not coping".

A neighbour who called the ambulance for Ryan said it looked as if a football team had had a go at him.

When questioned, the pair told police Ryan had slipped in the bath at their Slim Avenue flat. He died of a brain injury on 24 December 2008.



Kayley Boleyn and Christopher Taylor had both denied the murder
Taylor, 25, and Boleyn, 19, were also convicted of child cruelty.

Detectives believe the killers hid Ryan from his mother on the day before he suffered the fatal injury because severe bruising - in the shape of a hand-print - would have made their abuse obvious.

Officers say the pair committed the offences together and may even have encouraged each other to strike Ryan.

Neighbour Alan Mitchell called the ambulance for Ryan.

He said: "His head was swollen and he had grazes on his nose. It looked like a football team had had a go at him."

Among the abuse, Ryan was shouted at until he wet himself, and forced to lick spilled soup.

Miss Hancox said she intended to visit Ryan daily but had left it for up to three days at a time between visits.

She said: "My crime was naivety. Kayley is related to my family.


Ryan's mother describes him as a "really loving" little boy - West Midlands Police video
"She spent time at my mother's and father's houses. We were very close. She never showed any signs of nastiness.

"All I want is to see these two locked up for a lifetime and most of all I want and need a chance to rebuild my life and put my son to rest after this long period of time."

West Midlands Police said no action will be taken against Miss Hancox for leaving Ryan in Taylor and Boleyn's care.

The pair are due to be sentenced later this year.

It is the second child abuse case recently to be prosecuted in the West Midlands.

Birmingham City Council came under fire after seven-year-old Khyra Ishaq was starved to death in May 2008 by her mother Angela Gordon and her partner Junaid Abuhamza.

The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children said everyone had to be vigilant for signs that a child may need help.

It said: "Young children can't speak out for themselves but often show signs of distress.

"Child protection is everyone's responsibility and must become a top political priority in the coming general election."

viv said...

I need to rebuild my life. No words of sorrow for what she allowed to happen that took her son's life? No warning to other parents about what she did and who they choose to look after their children?

This attitude reminds me very much of Kate and Gerry McCann who have always sought to insist they acted as model parents.

Man charged with murder after body found in freezer
The partner of a 29-year-old woman whose body was found in a freezer has been charged with her murder.

Becky Thorpe's body was discovered in an outbuilding at the Compasses Inn in Snettisham, Norfolk, on Tuesday.

Michael Tucker, 49, who ran the pub with Ms Thorpe, was arrested on the Isle of Wight and brought to Norfolk to be questioned by detectives.

Mr Tucker, of Lynn Road, Snettisham, is due to appear before magistrates in Kings Lynn later.

Not guilty of murder, but trial continues on manslaughter of his baby son in 1985. Sometimes Justice can be a long wait! Given the other assaults referred to it sounds like he is a very dangerous man. I could hazard a guess why he had been estranged from the dead child's brother..What will the twins have to say when they are older if there is still no prosecution?

Norfolk father not guilty of baby murder
A man accused of murdering his six-week-old daughter 25 years ago in Norfolk by pushing her face into a sofa has been found not guilty.

David Riches, 46, was on trial at Norwich Crown Court for Melanin's murder at home near Norwich in 1985.

Judge Peter Jacobs said there was not enough evidence to find Mr Riches guilty, so delivered a not guilty verdict.

Mr Riches who lives in Pezens, France, is still on trial for manslaughter.

Jurors heard he allegedly confessed to the killing when he met up with his estranged son in 2007.

Denies manslaughter

Prosecutor Sally Howes QC said that doctors at the time believed that Melanin died as a result of cot death.

By chance, Melanin's brother Micah, now 21, was reunited with his father in summer 2007 after years apart.

The court heard Mr Riches told Micah in a text message that when Melanin would not stop crying he put her face between the arm and the seat of the sofa.

Mr Riches denies manslaughter and also denies five counts of child cruelty and six assaults relating to a number of women and children.

The trial continues.

Welcome back Viv and good to see you as well Hope. Off out now but will catch up later.

viv said...

Di! How lovely and welcome back to you!

I have just come back from Farden Centreing:))

I feel things are really looking up in terms of Justice for Maddie. Let us see what the feckless McCanns try next!

Will check to see if you and Hope are around later on!

Maybe Jo Wiz and others would like to join us again, all are welcome who are genuinely interested in searching for the truth about what happened to little Maddie.

There are still many McCann trolls on the internet seeking to insist there is no ongoing investigation into the McCanns in UK and the case needs to be re-opened in Portugal. Below is my response and the more you persist with this false propaganda the more I will comment and expose, I suggest you stop!

63 The case is not actually closed in Portugal it is archived whilst they wait for the McCanns to bring them some cogent evidence Maddie was abducted by some strange stalking predators who stole her from her bed. I think they know they will suffer an interminable wait for that !!

Both LP and the Home Office have confirmed a number of times this is an ongoing investigation. Why do you not accept that UK have jurisdiction against UK criminals and a fraudulent fund that originated in UK, like the whole crime did? UK never close their files in relation to a missing child where the parents are prime suspects in that disappearance. Madeleine is a Ward of Court because she was plainly not safe with her own parents and could not be returned to them, even if, by some miracle, she was found alive. The (then) Chief Constable of Leicester Police, our Attorney General and SOCA/CEOP made sure of that.

Our Attorney General only intervenes in the most incredibly serious cases, it is very rare, does that not tell you just how seriously UK take this matter and Gerry's determination at that time to get his mits on the files against him?

Something he is still trying to insist upon, "all law enforcement files should be put together and a review conducted". So that he can read it all and dictate these ridiculous sightings are more important than all the evidence against him? So that he can know all the evidence against him and think up some more of his diabolical and devious little schemes? I am amazed you can think the police in both UK and Portugal are not taking this case seriously! Portugal could have kept their file closed if they had any intention of pursuing the McCanns, but by opening it they put paid to Gerry making any more of his ill gotten gains. He can try to say the sightings are more important, there is "not a scrap of evidence that we are involved in our daughter's disappearance" we know that is not true! And as for his and Kate's oft repeated insistence "there is absolutely no evidence Madeleine has come to any harm", words absolutely fail me, who else but the most desperate criminals could make such a ridiculous statement? How can you believe this sounds like a couple who think they are getting away with it?

viv said...

The case of Ryan Hancox above paints a picture to me of a mother who did not want her little boy and did not really care what happened to him. When he is done to death by the "babysitters" she chose to care for him in a filthy hovel there are no words of remorse, just she needs to get on with her life.

I think we have previously been so shocked about Dr Gaspar's words concerning Payne's penchant for bathing little girls we may have missed the other clear implication in her words below. Maddie was just two but Kate and Gerry dumped her on Fiona and Dave for the day so they could "have a rest" and have some "time with the twins". Now they have achieved that aim, by getting rid of poor little Madeleine. Kate refused to answer the PJs question, were you thinking of transferring custody of Madeleine, Justice Hogg made poor little Maddie a Ward of Court. Dr Gaspar noted Maddie was not safe around Gerry and Payne, are we expected to believe Kate had not??

From Dr Gaspar's police statement against the McCanns and the Paynes:

During our holidays, I was more attentive at the bath times after hearing Dave saying that.

During our holidays in Majorca, it was the fathers who took care of the children baths. I had the tendency to walk close to the bathroom, if it was Dave bathing the children. I remember telling Savio to took care to be there, in case it was Dave helping to bathe the children and, in particular, my daughter E. I was very clear about this, as having heard him say that had disturbed me, and I did not trust him to give bath to E. alone.

When I heard Dave say that a second time, it reinforced what I already thought in relation to his thoughts about girls. During our stay in Majorca, Dave and his wife, Fiona, accompanied by their daughter L., took Madeleine (page 6) with them to spend the day, in order to give Kate and Gerry a bit of rest and time to be with the twins. When I say this, it is not that I was worried about Madeleine’s safety, since she was also with Fiona and L., and also with Dave, as far as I know.

Hello

The Gaspers statement is indeed shocking and whatever Mrs Gasper saw or heard on that holiday must have shaken her up and to be brave enought to stand up and voice her concerns when Madeleine went missing is comendable...

She may have got the wrong end of the stick and at the time what could she do I bet it was something she thought about often up until the time she reported it. If others were around when it was being said no doubt they must have found it odd as well but no one else has come forward.

This could be because they are now caught up in the lie and cant afford to rock the boat or they actually belive that kind of talk is fine if the second option is true then it is terifying that they still have access to children and social workers need to look closely at these people.

They have all admited they neglected their children Rachel even smelling through the door to check her baby had not soiled itself (never mind it had a stomach bug and could have died through de hydration or convulsions as long as she could not smell anything then she could go back to the bar for another glass of wine....

Kate and Gerry have told the world how it was not neglect as they could see the apartment so I guess that is ok but Jane and Rachel could not see theirs so what does that make them???

As for dumping Maddie for some time with the twins it does seem that the poor child was in the way....

We go to Florida later this week my eldest will be 17 this year and I hope she will still want to go away with us for a few more years to come (even if it is just because she cant afford to go away on her own)thinking of holidays past I cant imagine dumping the girls all day with strangers then leaving them alone while we went out to dinner... What a waste of time taking them would have been...

The fact we have been brainwashed to belive it is perfectly normal for families to neglect their children for a night out in a bar is shocking and the likes of Fiona Philips who found it hysterical that when she neglected her own children they were knocking on strangers doors looking for her is discusting...

No wonder she is reduced to talking at the Ideal Home Show lets just hope no one allows her to share her wicked style of child care she may thinks she is funny I think she is discusting....

hiya Hope

I often wonder if the police had prior knowledge of Payne, maybe even some of the others. When one of that former group has been brave enough to speak up, it seems to me the police have a clear idea about just how much the McCanns "cared" for little Maddie.

I am sure the others are caught up in the lie because even Diane Webster is plainly not completely telling the truth. I do not think she had any direct involvement but if she speaks the whole truth imagine the problems that will bring to Fiona and David. IMO it was very cruel to invite her on that holiday and she must terribly regret the fact she accepted the invitation. Bringing her along, still does not give this group any semblance of normality. This group who want to emphasise their apparent child neglect to cover something far more serious.

Maybe if Fiona Phillips is struggling to make ends meet she could get a backhander from Kate and Gerry's Defence Fighting Fund.

I hope you have a great time in Florida and Luke, aged 30 is still happy to come on hols with me, but as you say, kids do not have the money!

Hi all


It is totally shocking what that sick pair put Ryan Hancox through. I can't imagine the pain and fear he suffered before he died.

We are starting to see case after case like this, I just don't understand what is wrong with all these evil people who seem to get a kick out of hurting and abusing children.

Sorry not to be around busy weekend and off again now, will catch up tomorrow.

viv said...

Hiya Di,

I am sure it is wrong to blame the McCanns for everything, but you are right, since 2007, there does seem to be an epidemic of such cases.

I do not understand the police attitude in announcing no action against Ryan's mother. It just engenders the attitude, don't worry, you do not really need to be responsible for the care and safety of your own children. When they die, you just need to move on with your life!

There is something terribly wrong in just ignoring the rights of innocent children to safety and protection.

Let us hope this poor tormented lady can finally get her beloved son back, now that is a search worth donating to guys!

Moors Murders: Donations fund search for Keith Bennett

Keith Bennett's body has never been found on Saddleworth Moor
A privately-funded search for the body of Moors Murders victim Keith Bennett has begun in the Pennine hills near Manchester.

The 12-year-old vanished from his home in Longsight, Manchester, in 1964. He was one of five children abducted and murdered by Ian Brady and Myra Hindley.

Police abandoned the search for Keith's body last year, saying it would resume only if new information came to light.

Donations of money from hundreds of people have funded the search.

Keith's mother Winnie Johnson, 76, has not been able to hold a funeral for her son as his body has never been found.

The BBC's North of England correspondent Danny Savage said the privately-funded search, carried out by volunteers from a Welsh search and rescue team, offered Mrs Johnson new hope that her son's grave might be located.



Hindley and Brady confessed in 1987 to killing Keith
"This is probably her last hope of locating her son's body," he said.

"With Myra Hindley already dead, she told me she wasn't going to be defeated by what Ian Brady did.

"But finding Keith Bennett's body in this vast area will be difficult.

"The police and advanced technology have been defeated for years but Keith Bennett's mother is clinging to the hope that this search will deliver."

Keith was snatched as he walked to his grandmother's house in Longsight.

He was the third of the Moors Murderers' five child victims.

Pauline Reade, 16, disappeared on her way to a disco on 12 July 1963, and John Kilbride, 12, was snatched in November of that year.

Lesley Ann Downey, 10, was lured away from a funfair on Boxing Day 1964 and Edward Evans, 17, was killed in October 1965.

Brady and Hindley confessed in 1987 to killing Keith.

Hindley died in jail in November 2002, aged 60. Brady has spent the past 25 years at the high-security Ashworth Hospital in Merseyside.

hope4truth said...

Keith's Mum know the tragic truth of what happend to her son but has never given up hope she may one day bury him no doubt to lie alongside when her time comes...

This poor woman has been through hell yet still hopes for his body to be returned to her....

A few days after loosing their child due at best to their neglect the McCanns were laughing their heads off enjoying the lime light and the cash that had started to roll in...

Truly shameful no wonder less and less people belive them...

Timed perfectly it would seem to coincide with the One Year Anniversary event there is something sickening and bizarre about this spectacle. This Brazilian "artist" driving posts in the ground at 5.30 am before the arrival of the McCann family and John McCann's bemused response. She says she had the authority of the McCann family. Given Gerry's fascination with abducted girl who years later suddenly re-appear, I just get the worst possible feeling about this. I do think that CEOP believe the McCanns have exploited little Madeleine, that is what we have constantly seen with their bizarre and sickening "events". What more gross a way could there be to make us imagine Maddie as an adult, emerging from her apparent years in torture and captivity, something Gerry "takes comfort from". No doubt being "the situation Madeleine finds herself in". Sometimes I have to pinch myself and ask, did he really say that, "we realised the abductor might do something to her eye, but it was a good marketing ploy" and then I remind myself, yes, I am afraid he did.

Anger Over 'Grotesque' Madeleine Doll
Share Share
1:17pm UK, Sunday May 04, 2008

Alex Watts, Sky News Online, in Praia da Luz

Tempers have flared outside the village church in Praia da Luz over a "grotesque" mannequin of how missing Madeleine McCann would look at 18.


The artist and her mannequin

The 6ft tall plastic doll was put alongside a wall of Madeleine photographs by a Brazilian artist, who says she supports the hunt for the missing girl.

But a row soon broke out as angry locals turned on Josefa Maria dos Santos, and accused her of being "sick" and "grotesque".

Nancy Thompson, landlady of The Bull pub opposite the church, shouted at the woman to remove the doll, as passers-by tried to calm the situation.

She shouted at her in Portuguese: "It's horrible, who gave you permission to put that there? It's a disgrace! It's sick!"

The artist looked shocked, but would not back down. "That is your opinion," she kept saying.

The argument took place as members of the McCann family looked on.

A clearly incensed Ms Thompson spoke to Gerry McCann's brother John, and asked him what he thought of the doll.

Mr McCann, who had flown in from Glasgow to attend a church service on the one-year anniversary of Madeleine's disappearance, tried to pacify the situation.

He said: "It wouldn't be my choice, but the lady's intentions are good."

But despite the diplomacy, it was clear the family were upset by the doll - which was dressed in a blue and white track suit, with a striped hat similar to the ones worn by the child.

It had ablonde wig and its right eye was painted with the same distinctive mark as Madeleine.

When they first saw it as they were standing in the church yard, Madeleine's aunt Trisha Cameron looked sickened and shocked.

She told Sky News Online: "I hope that's not Madeleine!"

The Brazilian artist claimed the doll represented what Madeleine would like when she was 18 or 19-years-old, and said she had put it there to draw attention to the hunt for the missing girl.

She had also installed a wall of Madeleine press cuttings and photographs, and claimed the doll - or "boneca" - had been put there with the McCann family's "authority".

An explanation in Portuguese about the mannequin read: "It is very important to remember that you cannot exist as an adult without having been a child.

"Return Madeleine please."

One section of the wall display, plastered with articles from Portuguese newspapers and magazines, included pictures of the young girl subtitled: "Madeleine photographs from happy days."

But Ms Thompson was furious, and told Sky News Online before the argument: "It's absolutely unbelievable! It's grotesque, it's horrible. You wait until catch up with her.

"She was banging those posts in at 5.30am in the morning and woke some of the residents up.

"She says she's got the family's permission to put the posters up, but who gave her permission to put that doll up?

"I've got a good mind to take it down! Or call the police and get them to take it down."

Hiya Hope,

There is always that shocking contrast between the genuinely berieved parent and the McCanns who three years later still blandly insist nothing bad has happened to Madeleine.

I can completely understand how Mrs Bennett feels, she wants to do the very last thing a loving parent can do for the child, lay them peacefully to rest, rescue that child from where his murderer dumped him. No one can imagine the pain that poor woman has suffered all of these years.

And no right thinking person could possibly imagine the McCanns were in any sort of pain at all, just days later. It is quite horrific.

viv said...

Getting back to the post at the top, why would the Daily Telegraph suddenly remove most of its article?

It directly contradicts the subsequent spin that was put out in firstly, the Daily STar, then four small Yorkshire papers and then the next day The Sun, basically PJ and Leicester Police got the sack from the case and W Yorks are to take over in that it clearly quotes the HOme Office saying they are still very much on the case.

So could Mitchell have got at the Telegraph to get them to redact this article for its cheek? Yes, I think he could have done. The press in UK have always been dominated by and funded by the conservatives and money. The Telegraph certainly. Who has been behind the McCanns and using Gordon Brown's initial concern towards them to discredit him? The conservatives. McMillan Scott took them to Brusells, Clarence wanted to be a tory MP but instead has taken the job of backseat spinner behind Coulson ex News of the World Editor and plainly a major supporter of Kate and Gerry. So why are the press supporting them? Do they really support them, or are they just using the McCanns like they use them, because this is a right wing plot to get Gordon Brown out and because the McCanns sell newspapers?

I think this is the very best explanation for all that we see and the sly conservatives know full well that Gordon Brown cannot answer back in relation to an ongoing criminal case against the McCanns otherwise he would prevent them from having a fair trial.

It would certainly not be the first time we have seen a right wing campaign going on in the media to damage the labour party and Gerry has always wanted to look at the "wider political issues". You scratch my back and I will scratch yours. That Laffin Assasin character, he seems to have stopped screaching quite so much about Gordon Brown, bit thick really, does he have any role or purpose any longer?

viv said...

Oh lol, the story is back in full again now, nice to know someone is listening! Hello, Pink Spinner!

The Telegraph, ran the story of "abducted" little Maddie McCann at 12.04 on 4 May, yes, just one hour and 20 minutes after the police received the call instigated not by the McCanns but Mat Oldfield to the Portuguese Police at 10.41. Mrs Fenn offered to ring the police at 10.30 and was told by the McCanns they had "already been contacted". If Mat Oldfield had not taken the initiative I wonder when the McCanns would have got around to phoning the police about the daughter Kate insists she knew IMMEDIATELY at 10 pm had been abducted. What were you doing Kate and Gerry, giving sufficient time for Maddie to be in another country before you called?

The PJ note they are unable to account for where the various TAPAS members and Gerry McCann actually were and what they were doing in the melee that was created from just after 10 pm that night. Some witnesses say it was even considerable earlier than that! And of course those same people point blank refused to attend a reconstruction to demonstrate where they all were and what they were doing.

Decent people are not going to shut up about this until they start doing some explaining because we want to know exactly what they did with little Maddie. We want to know why the twins were drugged and why two "doctors" Kate and Fiona both trained in anaesthetics never even bothered to examine their pupils, let alone get them checked out properly given they would not wake up, why Kate instead just kept checking their breathing, was she waiting for a possible cardiac arrest before she did something? Why big sister was made to just completely disappear and why a group of 9 people including several doctors tell such a load of contradictory lies about it rather than helping the police.

I am not a doctor, but if I was so certain one of my children had been abducted and the other two could not wake up I would have been screaming the place down, get them to hospital something has been done to them as well. I would not have waited until several months later when it was too late to check for any drugs to mention it like the McCanns so sly did. Gerry even blogging managed to fit in haircut for the twins, no wonder some sensible legal adviser told him, you better get rid of that lot!

viv said...

In fact, do you know that the little girl's father got on his knees imploring the GNR police officers to help him when they arrived?

- That man, usually so cold, apparently lost control?
(Goncalo Amaral)

and I would add, verified in the PJ files from statements from the GNR guards who witnessed this cold man indulging in his play acting prostrating himself on the ground and wailing!
