The McCann friends don’t exist

Huelvainformacion.es, a Spanish news site, has been contacted by many British journalists, asking for information about Mari Luz, the five-year old that disappeared last Sunday. They want everything: pictures from the child, from the school where she goes, the house where she lives, who are her parents. They want details and information concerning the searches, the family, and so on. Ok, that’s the job of a journalist.

But if you are talking about the group of friends that was on holiday with the McCann, you can see some differences in the way the British journalists did their job. It took three months and a Portuguese journalist, Felicia Cabrita, to publish the names of all members of Tapas Group.

And until now, no more details than those revealed by Felicia Cabrita have surfaced. No friends of the McCann friends talking about them, no pictures (only those taken in Portugal..), no interviews with neighbours, no details about where they live, no references about where they work. We had Jane Tanner in TV, but it was all.

It seems that the McCann friends don’t exist. Or the British Media, so quick to find anything about anybody, is facing the same difficulties I found, when I called Leicester University, months ago, and asked them if they could confirm that David Payne was a fellow researcher at that university.

The lady who talked with me asked for my email and promised to send me later the information I requested, because she needed to take a look at the files. No email has come from Leicester University, until now. Were the McCann having diner, on May 3rd, with a group of ghosts?
