A diplomatic affair?

It was big news all over the British Media. A cable sent by the US ambassador in Lisbon quoted the UK ambassador saying that British officers had developed evidence against the McCann parents. Everyday (unfortunately...) children disappear all over Europe. How many of those children are so important that the ambassadors from the of most powerful nations of the world had a talk about it? And how many of those children are so important that the ambassador of United States of America sends a confidential report to the State Department with the information he has about the case?

Madeleine McCann book ban overturned by Portuguese court

Appeal court lifts block on sales of book by former detective alleging Madeleine is dead and abduction story was fabricated. Kate and Gerry McCann, the parents of missing Madeleine, suffered a setback today in their legal battle with a Portuguese police officer when a Lisbon appeal court overturned a ban on his book about the case. The book by former police detective Gonçalo Amaral, who led the Madeleine investigation in the first five months after the three-year-old's disappearance, can now go back on sale.
In September last year the McCanns obtained the ban on Amaral's book Maddie – The Truth about the Lie, in which he claims they were involved in the toddler's disappearance.
Amaral claims Madeleine died accidentally in the Algarve holiday apartment at Praia da Luz, where she was first reported missing in October 2007, and that her parents fabricated the abduction story. The McCanns, who have never ceased in their search for the missing girl, are suing him for defamation.
Portugal's attorney general, having reviewed the investigation, has ruled there is no evidence to suggest that the McCanns are anything other than entirely innocent (...).

An interesting sugestion

"But alongside your campaign to tighten laws against child pornography, why not also create a Madeleine McCann charity - one that would not simply fund the search for your lost daughter, and others like her, but which would also help children in other distressing situations?"

I hope Mr. Robert Mendick will die soon from stomach cancer


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.

Published: 9:00PM GMT 06 Mar 2010

(…)
“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.”
(…)
“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."

The McCann Case: Money for nothing, “that ain't workin”



 Dear Mr. Martin Fricker (*):  

Are you following orders, just brainless or a corrupt journalist? I’m asking this question because if you are not brainless or following orders and the right answer is the last one, I would like to know how much are they paying for what you - many other British and several Portuguese journalists - are doing, while pretending to be journalists. That’s what we can call “Money for Nothing”, because “that ain't workin”..

CHAPTER I

Investigators ignored new Maddy sighting in New Zealand

MADDIE SEEN 'ALIVE' ON TV

More Madeleine 'Sightings' In New File

MADDIE SIGHTING WAS KEPT SECRET

McCann family says it is scandalous Portuguese police did not follow up possible sighting of missing daughter Madeleine in Dunedin 2007

New Zealand Police Force
Media Statement - 3 March, 2010 - 16:49

Dunedin Police say that they did receive information from a member of the public who believed she saw Madeleine McCann in a Dunedin retail outlet in December 2007 (…) Police were unable to obtain any further information or ongoing lines of inquiry. The file was forwarded to Interpol and this is correct procedure under international agreements. The lead jurisdiction, in this case, Portugal, directs how the case progresses and has not asked NZ Police for any follow-up to date. The file has remained open ever since, Inspector Campbell said.

New Zealand police dismiss possible McCann sighting

Clarence Mitchell:

1 – Clarence Mitchell, spokesman for the McCann, said “They were shocked when they became aware of the scale of the information that had come in and the lack of action taken.  There are potential leads in the file that are now being followed up by our investigators. It’s more than a pity that the file has just sat there for so long and simply been marked ‘not relevant’ by the Portuguese.”

2 - Clarence Mitchell, spokesman for the McCanns, said: 'They are incredibly frustrated that this was sitting there and being disregarded by the Portuguese police. They were shocked when they saw the scale of the information that had come in and the lack of action taken.

'There are potential leads in the file that are now being followed up by our investigators. It's more than a pity that the file has just sat there for so long and simply marked "not relevant" by the Portuguese. There are also images in the file that are strikingly similar to Madeleine and are being looked into.'

CHAPTER II

MADDIE SIGHTING WAS KEPT SECRET

MADELEINE McCann could be 12,000 miles away in New Zealand, it was revealed last night. Police files kept secret for nearly two years were obtained yesterday by the Daily Star.  They include grainy footage from a supermarket’s CCTV cameras that could show the missing youngster Down Under.

Last night the McCanns were “extremely angry” that the file had remained hidden. Their spokesman Clarence Mitchell said: “They were shocked when they became aware of the scale of the information that had come in and the lack of action taken.
“There are potential leads in the file that are now being followed up by our investigators. It’s more than a pity that the file has just sat there for so long and simply been marked ‘not relevant’ by the Portuguese.”

IS MADDY LIVING IN NEW ZEALAND?

'It WAS Maddie': Witness convinced girl in photo that Portuguese police kept secret was missing Madeleine

The woman who reported a possible sighting of Madeleine McCann in New Zealand  which was kept secret by Portuguese police said today she 'absolutely believes' it was the missing girl. Files have been released showing that Portuguese police dismissed dozens of potential sightings of Madeleine.  Leads from around the world - including the CCTV footage from New Zealand of a child looking strikingly like the missing girl - were filed away under the heading 'not relevant'.

Information that police forces in the United States, Europe and North Africa considered important was also discarded. None of the files was handed to private investigators working for Madeleine's parents, Gerry and Kate.
(…)
Their existence came to light in a legal action brought by the McCanns against Goncalo Amaral, the disgraced detective who was in charge of the case.  Madeleine was four when she vanished from the family's holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in May 2007. Her parents were at a restaurant 80 yards away.

They now have a copy of the 2,000-page dossier which was published yesterday on the order of a court in Portugal after an application by newspapers including the Daily Mail.  The McCanns are incensed that their private investigators were given no access to the sightings at the time.
(…)
Mrs McCann said: 'There are instances where information which we think is very credible and worthy of information has not been actioned.  'We're gutted, it's absolutely shocking and difficult. Some of the information handed in was very credible. It's heartbreaking to know that it seems to end there.'

Mr McCann, also 41, was particularly angered at Inspector Ricardo Paiva, who was responsible for collating any information about Madeleine after the formal investigation ended.  He said: 'Inspector Paiva believes Madeleine is dead. How can he investigate thoroughly if he believes that? We know now there is a lot of information just filed away - and that is not acceptable. Once the file has been closed, what has actually been done? Next to nothing.'

The file contains a series of sightings which the McCanns would have expected to be fully investigated. The astonishing CCTV footage from New Zealand shows a girl very like Madeleine being led into a supermarket by a portly man in shorts - seven months after her disappearance.
(…)
Clarence Mitchell, spokesman for the McCanns, said: 'They are incredibly frustrated that this was sitting there and being disregarded by the Portuguese police. 'They were shocked when they saw the scale of the information that had come in and the lack of action taken.

'There are potential leads in the file that are now being followed up by our investigators. It's more than a pity that the file has just sat there for so long and simply marked "not relevant" by the Portuguese. There are also images in the file that are strikingly similar to Madeleine and are being looked into.'

Madeleine McCann: Fat Men, Gypsies And Pictures Of Kiwi Paedos


“So far, Madeleine has also been seen in: Italy, Sweden, Portugal, Spain, Morocco, Majorca, Belgium, Bosnia, France, Australia, Brazil, Wales, Malta, Italy and Dorset.”
(…)
"And the McCanns can now look. They have the documents. And they may well have the money soon, as they seek libel damages from Goncalo Amaral. Meanwhile, Madeleine McCann is missing – still missing…”

Madeleine McCann in New Zealand !!!!!!!!

 
 
"One of the reported sightings came seven months after Madeleine's disappearance, when CCTV footage showed a man leading a young girl resembling Madeleine into a Dunedin supermarket."

"Although the girl said her name was Hailey, a security guard who approached her was convinced she was Madeleine and reported the incident to police. Interpol in Wellington sent the images to police in Portugal, who deemed it irrelevant."

"None of the files were given to private investigators working for the McCanns, who took legal action against Portuguese detective Goncalo Amaral to get the information released.
Mrs McCann said there were several instances where credible leads had not been followed up on.”

"We're gutted, it's absolutely shocking and difficult. Some of the information handed in was very credible. It's heartbreaking to know that it seems to end there."

Die Gedanken sind frei...



Die Gedanken sind frei, wer kann sie erraten,
sie fliegen vorbei wie nächtliche Schatten.
Kein Mensch kann sie wissen, kein Jäger erschießen
mit Pulver und Blei, Die Gedanken sind frei!

Ich denke was ich will und was mich beglücket,
doch alles in der Still', und wie es sich schicket.
Mein Wunsch und Begehren kann niemand mir wehren,
es bleibet dabei: Die Gedanken sind frei!

Und sperrt man mich ein im finsteren Kerker,
das alles sind rein vergebliche Werke.
Denn meine Gedanken zerreißen die Schranken
und Mauern entzwei, die Gedanken sind frei!

Drum will ich auf immer den Sorgen absagen
und will mich auch nimmer mit Grillen mehr plagen.
Man kann ja im Herzen stets lachen und scherzen
und denken dabei: Die Gedanken sind frei!

Ich liebe den Wein, mein Mädchen vor allen,
sie tut mir allein am besten gefallen.
Ich sitz nicht alleine bei einem Glas Weine,
mein Mädchen dabei: Die Gedanken sind frei!

Why is that a man, even a judge, can decide what others (everyone) can read or not? It has more capacity than all the others? How many judges have made a mistake and caused irreparable damage?

They have banned the sale of the book, so here's for free. By the way, forward it to the larger number possible of your contacts. Let’s see if the judge is going to prevent it…

The best British journalists reporting about Madeleine McCann Case

A special award should be given to Mr. Andrew Wilson, a Sky News journalist who had the shortest role while reporting about Maddie disappearance. In his first broadcast, in front of PJ headquarter in Portimão, he said that “Spanish police” had already sent the final report of the investigation to the judge. That was too much, even for Sky News, and Mr. Wilson was quickly sent back to UK.

Mr. Martin “I Don’t Know But I Suspect” Brunt was much better than Mr. Andrew Wilson. It’s difficult to find a more incompetent, stupid and biased journalist convering this case. Martin Brunt was so stupid that he even wrote in his blog that he had no sources in the Portuguese police, he knew nothing about the investigation of Madeleine disappearance and he was totally dependent from the translation of the news published by Portuguese Press.


Martin was so incompetent, as a journalist, that he even had to apologise, in a report broadcasted on September 11, 2007, around 4:00 am, because the big story he broke, a few hours before – samples from the Renault Scenic had a 100 % match with Madeleine’s DNA – was “burned out”, as he said.
Martin Brunt was so biased he never informed Sky News viewers that his “creature”, Mr. Mark William-Thomas, a so-called “expert in child abduction”, was also the owner and director of a PR company specialized in ”media handling and advice for high profile cases and “design or review organisations media crisis policy”.

The fact these two amazingly incompetent “journalists” work for Sky News is just a coincidence or a recruitment criteria?


Maddie disappearance and a British Media vanishing act


Mr Hill said that (...), there was no sign that anyone had forced their way in while the McCanns ate at the tapas restaurant 200 yards away.”

A curious phenomenon that happened at Praia da Luz had at its centre the manager of Ocean Resort, Mr. John Hill. All British Media printed and broadcasted his remarks, denying Kate McCann story about the broken and/or jammed shutter.

Mr. John Hill was clear and blunt and he was also - with no doubt – a reliable witness, as he was one of the first persons to come inside apartment A5, after Kate McCann realized Madeleine was not there and called her husband and friends.

But Mr. John Hill disappeared from the pages of British newspapers, in such a mysterious way as the child. He was quoted only on May 4 and May 5. After Mr. Alex Wollfall arrived at Ocean Resort, with his well-trained damaged control team operating in full steam, from his office n London, Mr. John Hill was erased from the Media (but this is just a coincidence, I’m sure...)
