The McCannfiles is reporting the story here.
Follow the discussion on this remarkable turn of events here.
Were the Portuguese police right to “believe that Kate McCann killed Madeleine while putting her to bed at their holiday apartment in Praia da Luz between 7pm and 8.30pm on May 3” 2007?
Clarence Mitchell claimed that the allegation is nonsensical. The McCann camp lied to the public and the media when “A source close to the McCanns said: “… Kate was not in the apartment alone with Maddie”…”.
Even in this untruthful account given by Kate McCann she states she was alone in the apartment whilst Gerry McCann went out to play tennis: “Kate said that she and Gerry went back to apartment, with the children, around 5:40 pm and gave them bath, together (statement to PJ, September 6, 2007). They thought about taking the children to the playground area, after bath, but decided not to do it, that day, because the children were really very tired. Just before 6:00 pm, Gerry left the apartment and went to the tennis court“.
Kate McCann lied to cover up the fact that she was alone with the three children in the apartment and when the children were being bathed: “According to his statement, on September 7, 2007Gerry was playing tennis. At around 6:30 pm, David Payne came from Paraíso bar, and asked him if he was going to keep playing. Gerry said he didn’t know, because Kate could need some help to take care of the three children, as they intended to take them to the playground, after the bath“.
I did float the theory on my Jailhouselawyer’s blog that perhaps Madeleine drowned? In any event, I would strongly suggest that Madeleine died around bath time. Why did the McCanns go to so much trouble to try and convince the public and the media that the adults bathed the children together? The McCanns got the basics of their story together, however, it started to fall apart with the glaring inconsistencies. Not only did the PJ detect the inconsistencies, bloggers, forumers and those in chatrooms also ripped the McCanns story apart.
The hastily arranged get together in the Tapas bar was solely for the purpose of discussing what Gerry McCann stated was a disaster to their life-style. The agenda being a cover up. Their careers and reputations were at stake, Madeleine was dead and none of their medical expertise could alter that fact, so they embarked upon a salvage operation to save what was left. It was decided that the Vanishing Act would be blamed on an abductor who broke into the apartment, and the McCanns would use the media to further their aims. When their version of events raises the eyebrows of the PJ because what they are hearing does not correlate with the scene as set up by the McCanns, Jane Tanner suddenly becomes a witness to seeing the abductor. However, this hastily arranged shoring up the version of events had flaws. Neither Jeremy Wilkins nor Gerry McCann state they saw Jane Tanner at the same time and place she claimed to be when seeing the abductor. Jeremy Wilkins had inadvertantly stumbled upon Gerry McCann tampering with the shutters to make it look like a break in had occured, or as he later claimed a break out by the abductor as he went out of the window. Both Gerry McCann and Jeremy Wilkins would not only have seen the abductor, they would have also heard him.
Bath time, Jane Tanner’s sighting and Gerry McCann and Jeremy Wilkins meeting are 3 key weaknesses in the McCanns version of events.
Clarence Mitchell states: “We just hope that everyone can see these ridiculous rumours for what they are. It is very hard on the couple because they are not allowed to talk about the investigation and cannot defend themselves”.
There is nothing stopping the McCanns from speaking out now to defend themselves.
J’accuse I accuse the McCanns.
It will be remembered that 2 days after being made arguidos, the McCanns fled Portugal for Britain, leaving behind 48 unanswered questions put to them by the PJ. Upon arriving back in Britain, Gerry McCann had this to say:
Now the McCanns are no longer subject to the secrecy laws in Portugal, no longer can they claim to be unable to speak freely. Given that Gerry McCann has stated that there is so much that the couple wish to say, when they could not say it, why are the McCanns now so silent on providing explanations to the 48 unanswered questions?
Before the McCanns blamed the PJ for their silence. Now, only the McCanns can be blamed for their silence.
What guilty secrets are the McCanns keeping quiet about?
The 48 questions they refused to answer and the one they answered:
1 On the 3rd of May 2007, at around 10 p.m., when you entered the apartment, what did you see, what did you do, where did you search, what did you handle?
2 Did you search in the couple’s bedroom closet? (said she would not reply)
3 (Two photographs of her bedroom’s closet are exhibited) Can you describe its contents?
4 Why are the curtains in front of the side window, behind the sofa (photograph is exhibited) ruffled? Did someone pass behind that sofa?
5 How long did the search that you made in the apartment after detecting the disappearance of your daughter Madeleine take?
6 Why did you say straight away that Madeleine had been abducted?
7 Presuming that Madeleine had been abducted, why did you leave the twins alone at home while you went to the Tapas to raise the alarm? Even because the supposed abductor could still be inside the apartment.
8 Why didn’t you ask the twins at that moment what had happened to their sister, or why didn’t you ask them at a later point in time?
9 When you raised the alarm at the Tapas, what exactly did you say and what were the words?
10 What happened after you raised the alarm at the Tapas?
11 Why did you go to warn your friends instead of calling out from the balcony?
12 Who contacted the authorities?
13 Who participated in the searches?
14 Did anyone outside of the group learn about Maddie’s disappearance during the following minutes?
15 Did any neighbour offer you help after the disappearance?
16 What does the expression “we let her down” mean?
17 Did Jane mention to you that she had seen a man with a child that night?
18 How were the authorities contacted and which police force was called?
19 During the searches, and already with the police present, in what locations was Maddie searched for, how and in what manner?
20 Why didn’t the twins wake up during that search, or when they went to the upper floor?
21 Who did you call after the facts?
22 Did you call SKY News?
23 Did you know about the danger of calling the media, because that could influence the abductor?
24 Did you request the presence of a priest?
25 How was Madeleine’s face publicised, with a photograph, or other media?
26 Is it true that during the search you remained seated on Maddie’s bed without moving?
27 How did you behave that evening?
28 Did you manage to sleep?
29 Before the trip to Portugal, did you comment on a bad feeling or a bad premonition?
30 What was Madeleine’s behaviour?
31 Did Maddie suffer of any disease or did she take any kind of medication?
32 What was the relationship like between Madeleine and her siblings?
33 What was the relationship like between Madeleine and her siblings, her friends and her colleagues at school?
34 Concerning your professional life, in how many and in which hospitals have you worked?
35 What is your medical specialty?
36 Did you work by shifts, in emergency rooms or in other departments?
37 Did you work on a daily basis?
38 Did you stop working at a certain point in time? Why?
39 Do your twin children have difficulty in falling asleep, are they unruly and does that upset you?
40 Is it true that at certain times you were desperate over your children’s attitude and that left you upset?
41 Is it true that in England you considered the possibility of handing over Madeleine’s guardianship to a relative?
42 In England, did you give your children medication? What type of medication?
43 Within the process, you were shown films of cynotechnical inspection of forensic character, where the dogs can be seen marking indications of human cadaver odour and equally human blood traces, and only of human origin, as well as all the comments that were made by the responsible expert. After the visualisation, and after cadaver odour was signalled in your bedroom next to the wardrobe and behind the sofa that was pushed against the living room window, you said that you could not explain anything apart from what you had already said?
44 You said that you could not explain anything apart from what you had already said, concerning the marking of human blood behind the sofa by the detection dog?
45 You said that you could not explain anything apart from what you had already said, concerning the marking of cadaver odour in the boot of the vehicle that you rented a month after the disappearance?
46 You said that you could not explain anything apart from what you had already said, concerning the marking of human blood in the boot of the vehicle?
47 You said that you could not explain anything apart from what you had already said, upon being confronted with the result of the collection of Maddie’s DNA, which was analysed by a British lab, behind the sofa and inside the vehicle’s boot?
48 Did you have any responsibility or intervention in the disappearance of your daughter?
Justice for Madeleine – Let Her Speak Out campaign
(A work in progress)
“Here I stand with no child in sight”.
In my view, The McCanns should go back to Portugal and answer the questions put to them by the PJ. That is, as Madeleine is a ward of court, she is entitled to her human rights. I am surprised that nobody argued or took into consideration Madeleine’s human rights within the Human Rights Act and the Declaration under the Convention. “Article 3: Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person”. There is no evidence of any abduction or abductor. There is evidence that there was no break-in. Put that on a scale of justice. The PJ believe that the McCanns hold the answers to their unasked questions. If they have nothing to hide then they have nothing to fear.
Justice what does it mean?
Human rights and responsibilities:
“What are rights? Are we born with them or do we acquire them?
Now think about the rights of children everywhere”.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights:
“The Universial Declaration of Human Rights says that all people wherever they live, should be able to live safely, in freedom and peace”.
Originally, this was just an agreement between member states and “not as a law, but as a statement to the whole world about how peoples, organisations and governments should behave towards each other. It is the responsibility of every individual, and every government to honour this Declaration in order to safeguard freedom and justice and, therefore, the future happiness and dignity of all people. You could say that this is one of the top priorities of our time”.
The Human Rights Act (1998):
Clarence Mitchell tipped off the McCanns to Portuguese police monitoring
I have been searching for a McCann case and Freemason’s link for a couple of days now. Then just a few minutes ago I came across this. Scroll down a bit and you find this:
“This is a fraternal Order but is not Masonic“.
Scroll down a bit further and you find this:
“Missing for one year now: Madeleine McCann, 4 years old,
abducted in Praia da Luz, Portugal on 3rd May 2007
Our thoughts and prayers remain with the wee girl and her family“.
UPDATE: This story is number 1 on Google. CNN where are you?
I refer in the title, of course, to Gerry McCann’s outburst, at the Strasbourg press conference, when the McCanns were asked, by a Portuguese journalist, why they had left their children unsupervised on 3 May 2007.
Now, I can understand that the topic was meant to be the McCanns hijacked Amber Alert scheme. However, surely the McCanns can appreciate that the journalist was only doing his job and leaving no stone unturned in the search for truth?
Gerry McCann’s complaint was that some of the journalists were going over old ground. And, the McCanns wanted to move on. However, there are benefits of going over old ground. An example might be the gold digger Heather Mills who struck it rich with Paul McCartney. Seriously, though, it is to be expected when there is unfinnished business to attend to.
Yesterday on the 3As forum somone posted a link to a BBC News Leicester article from 4 May 2007, which was interesting in itself to see how the case was first reported before all the McCann spin took a grip. And, the question was asked whether the PJ were negligent. It might be remembered that the McCanns were quick to criticise them for not doing enough. That is, they were reluctant to go off in search of the so-called abductor. But, the available evidence pointed towards the involvment of the McCanns in the disappearance of their daughter.
As one 3As poster has observed, there are two victims in this case. And, it is not the McCanns themselves. Rather, it is Madeleine, and the freedom of the press.
I have been having a good look at the Find Madeleine website set up by the McCanns on 10 May 2007 and a rather disturbing picture emerges, from its title onwards. Find Madeleine – The Official Website To Find Madeleine McCann.
It appears that Gerry has set himself up as the Madeleine Finder General in charge of finding Madeleine. However, I was under the impression that that is the task of the PJ?
The McCanns went on holiday to Portugal from Britain. Whilst there, they reported that Madeleine was missing to the Portuguese authorities who have jurisdiction in the matter of conducting an investigation into her disappearance. During the course of this investigation, the McCanns claimed that their apartment had been broken into. Furthermore, they claimed that Madeleine had been abducted.
The Portuguese police and the PJ very early on established that there was no evidence to support the McCanns assertion that there had been a break-in. This aroused the police and PJ’s suspicions of the McCanns involvement in Madeleine’s disappearance. This was in addition to the fact that in the vast majority of cases involving harm to a child, a parent or family member or friend tends to be involved.
The McCanns changed their story from a locked apartment, to them leaving it unlocked.
Not only did this change of story confirm that the PJ were right to be suspicious of the McCanns in the first place, it added the element of child neglect into the case. So, even if the McCanns abductor theory was valid it still left the child neglect issue to be dealt with. The McCanns were in deep trouble.
Nevertheless, the McCanns were able to steal an advantage. Because of the secrecy laws surrounding the PJ investigation, the PJ were hampered as the McCanns spoke out to the media, and sparked a diplomatic incident.
But, to get back to the McCanns website, it was originally set up a week after Madeleine was reported missing. According to the mccannfiles:
The website was relaunched (becoming the third version) on 01 February 2008, noticeably now without the running total of donations to Madeleine’s Fund but with a vastly improved section on Madeleine herself”.
I had come to the conclusion that the intention of the website was not about finding Madeleine at all before reading the same view expressed by the mccannfiles, and that its intention was to earn money for the McCanns. I would be very interested to learn why the running total for donations is absent. Again, I noticed this for myself. What I was looking for was transparency and accountability in relation to the Madeleine Fund. All I found was a murkiness designed to obscure clarity, and a distinct lack of accountability. I would suggest that this is the work of fraudsters.
According to the McCanns on their website:
“Someone, somewhere has information about Madeleine that could be the breakthrough we have been waiting for”.
Somehow, I don’t believe that the McCanns are hoping that the real investigators, the PJ, will get the breakthrough that they are looking for.
This is clearly a fraudulent statement:
“Since September 2007 , a private detection agency Metodo3 who are based in Barcelona, has been employed to complement the official investigation, in particular focusing its enquiries outside of Portugal”.
I am sure that the PJ do not feel that Metodo3 in any way complements their investigation. It is an unofficial investigation organised by the McCanns. Metodo3 has cost at least £50,000 per month from the Madeleine Fund, and produced no results. By that I mean they have not found Madeleine. However, from the McCanns perspective, laying false trails from their door and providing false sightings, the McCanns may feel that the public’s money has been well spent.
And this is what the fund has always been about, to support the McCanns and not find Madeleine.
