It is untruthful for Gerry McCann to claim “that Portuguese police documents show there is “absolutely no evidence” that his daughter Madeleine has been harmed, and that his family still believe she could be found alive“.
Gerry McCann’s arrogant boast is based upon his belief that he is confident that their concealment of Madeleine’s body will mean that it will never be discovered. True, the PJ have so far been unable to find Madeleine’s body. However, there are examples of successful prosecutions in the absence of a body.
Where the McCanns fall down is if there was an innocent explanation for Madeleine’s death, why didn’t they summon help, and why instead did they dispose of her body? Truth and innocence do not require a cover up such as a fake abduction story. And there was the fake break in story. And the fake sighting of the so-called abductor by Jane Tanner. The McCanns could not agree how they last saw Madeleine before going out to the Tapas bar, they gave different accounts. The truth only needs one account.
In this case, Chris McCann of the Crown Prosecution Service successfully prosecuted without a body.
