Paedophile snubs Madeleine grilling

Final attempts by private detectives searching for Madeleine McCann to interview a convicted British paedophile about her disappearance have failed.

Retired UK policemen Dave Edgar and Arthur Cowley flew to Germany hoping to speak to Raymond Hewlett, who is said to have been staying an hour's drive from the McCanns' Portuguese holiday flat when the little girl vanished in May 2007.

But negotiations between the private investigators and Hewlett's German lawyer broke down.

Mr Edgar, who has been employed by Madeleine's parents Kate and Gerry McCann to look for their daughter, said he was "very disappointed" with the lawyer's behaviour.

He added: "I have been attempting to speak with Raymond Hewlett to eliminate him from our investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

"He is not a suspect but I was keen to interview him because of his failing health. I have tried over the past weeks to arrange this via his lawyer in Germany.

"These negotiations have been difficult for reasons which I do not want to go into detail about. Mr Hewlett's condition has of course been deteriorating during these negotiations.

"I travelled to Germany in a final effort to interview Raymond Hewlett. Regrettably that interview is not possible. From information provided by his lawyer and other sources it is obvious that his health is such that any meaningful interview would not be possible."

West Yorkshire Police has confirmed its officers are investigating Hewlett in connection with an indecent assault in 1975.

Madeleine was nearly four when she went missing from Praia da Luz in the Algarve on May 3, 2007 while her parents dined with friends nearby. Despite a massive police investigation and huge publicity worldwide, she has not been found.

    Well if he is not a suspect why the hell do you want to interview him Mr Edgar ????

  2. FIRST:

    "Retired UK policemen Dave Edgar and Arthur Cowley flew to Germany hoping to speak to Raymond Hewlett, who is said to have been staying an hour's drive from the McCanns' Portuguese holiday flat when the little girl vanished in May 2007."

    THIS DID NOT MADE HIM SUSPECT- THOUSANDS OF INNOCENT PEOPLE HAVE BEEN ONE HOUR, 30 MINUTES, FEW MINUTES AWAY FROM THE RESORT. HER PARENTS ARE IN LOCCU AND DID NOT PROTECT HER! CRAP reason to pursue the man and start the hunting...

    SECOND:

    "But negotiations between the private investigators and Hewlett's German lawyer broke down.

    Mr Edgar, who has been employed by Madeleine's parents Kate and Gerry McCann to look for their daughter, said he was "very disappointed" with the lawyer's behaviour."

    - THE LAWYER IS TRUE- PRIVATE INVESTIGATION IS ILLEGAL IN MOST EUROPEAN COUNTRYS AND THE BEHAVIOUR OF THAT PAIR OF DETECTIVES CAN BE EASILY DROPPED IN A CRIMINAL CIRCUNSTANCE. WELL DONE, THAT HE REFUSES TO PLAY A MAIN PART IN A SERIOUS JOKE...

    THIRD:

    "These negotiations have been difficult for reasons which I do not want to go into detail about."

    YAH! YOU ARE TRYING TO BUY A CONFESSION SPENDING FEW AND RIDICULOUS POUNDS, IS IT? EVEN PAEDOPHILES HAVE SOME MORAL AND ARE NOT SO EVIL AS YOU ARE... A PAIR OF EVIL, ILLEGAL, CORRUPTED AND CRIMINOUS DETECTIVES. THIS IS WAY MR. HEWLETT DESERVES SYMPATHIE FROM THE PUBLIC AND YOU SHOULD HANG OUT FROM THE STAGE WITH YOUR CRAP MEDIA SUPPORTERS.
    HE PROMISES TO TALK TO YOU, OR YOU DREAMED WITH THAT INTERVIEW AND YOUR MEDIA SPREADED THE LIE?

    WELL DONE... AT LEAST YOU HELPED A TRAVELLED AGENCY, A FLIGHT COMPANY AND A HOTEL IN GERMANY, TO FIGHT THE ECONOMICAL CRISIS WITH MADELEINES FUND MONNEY. A SMALL CHARITY which the authorities have to thankfull Mr. Hewlett and his lawyer.

    SHIFT THE NEEDLE AND FLY TO A DIFFERENT COUNTRY... THAT TARGET IS OVER...

  3. " "He is not a suspect..."

    Ah, but that's not what the Mccann machine has been feeding to the media, and what they wanted us all to believe, is it? And, if he's not a suspect why all the circus around him, why all the harassement, the total disregard for this man's health and for his family right to privacy?
    Smoke and mirrors...no matter what it takes, no matter who suffers and pays for it...despicable McCanns and their entourage!
    Good for the german authorities, for Mr. Hewlett and his german lawyer, that acted sensibly in this matter and did not fall for the MCs dirty tricks! If this man had been in hospital in Portugal instead of a serious country like German, I'm sure the McCanns and their detectives would have got their way, they would have walked all over Mr. Hewlett! Judging by the way the portuguese authorities have behaved through all this sad saga, they would have looked away, pretend nothing was happening and no laws were being broken!

  4. Kevin Maguire's Sick "Maddy" Cameron Jibe order-order


    By Guido Fawkes
    08 June 2009

    "This morning at a breakfast briefing seminar held at the City offices of corporate lobbyists Hanover Communications, Kevin Maguire was the star turn giving the assembled spin-doctors and fee paying clients the benefit of his insight derived from his years of service to Gordon Brown and Damian McBride, the former Downing Street press adviser, who was Kevin's long time drinking partner.

    When the cappuccino supping Maguire was asked by one of the croissant chewing seminar participants if there was any possible way Gordon Brown could win the general election his smirking reply was:

    "The only way Gordon Brown can win the general election is if Madeleine McCann's body is found in David Cameron's garage." "

    INTERESSING... HE HIS SPEAKING ABOUT MADELEINE'S BODY... NOT MADELEINE'S ALIVE...

    A NEW TIME START BORN IN UK, is it Mr. MITCHELL? ARE YOU GOING TO TALK ABOUT MADELEINE'S BODY ON THE NEXT PRESS CONGRESS IN DUBAI,ON NOVEMBER?

    SHOULD AMARAL BOOK BE RELEASED IN DUBAI BEFORE THAT CONGRESS TO ADVISE THE PUBLIC THAT THERE IS A DIFFERENT POINT OF VUE COMING FROM INSIDE THE INVESTIGATION? AND THAT, PERAPHS THE WORK OF A PR IS NOT TO HELP THE PARENTS OF MISSING CHILDS TO GET THEIR CHILDS BACK, but to help suspects run away from justice and shelve cases.

    It is so much interessed if people got all pictures from the case. Dubai deserves it...

  5. Wow letting them know they had no authority to interview this man.

    Wish the british and portugese had the same courage with team Maccann. The maccann,s have power over them both

    His family should sue the daily mirror it had him all over the front page as the suspect.

  7. When this guy went to the trouble to wheel himself out into the hospital carpark to talk to these detective's, they wouldn't return to speak with him, which begs the question, Do they want to question him or make it appear that he won't talk to them?
    He's already stated that he wasn't involved in Maddies abduction, what more can he tell them?
    Apart from anything else this guy has a history for assaulting teenagers not three year olds.

  8. All the fuss and media coverage created over this man must have been for something; the McCann team never do things for no reason. Now, however, they seem keen to play it down, which is strange. If they really thought Raymond Hewlett was involved in abducting Madeleine, surely they would 'leave no stone unturned' to find out. Another McCann phrase which keeps going through my mind is that 'no police force is looking for Madeleine' - i.e. they say that is why they are having to raise funds and pay for private detectives. Well, that certainly seems to be true if the police who interviewed Mr. Hewlett about a sexual attack years ago didn't even mention Madeleine to him, despite him being splashed all over the newspapers and TV by the McCann team as a suspect. Why is no police force looking for Madeleine, I wonder? Could it be because they know there is no point?

  10. So, the mother Kate won't talk to the real police choosing to ignore questions asked and this guy is the bad one for refusing to talk to 'privately funded' ones.

    Almost laughable isn't it. These McCanns will be behind bars in my opinion, sooner than most think.

  11. 'A paedo a day keeps the PJ away...', as Paulo Reis wittily puts it (Gazeta Digital)

    This time the McCann investigators wanted to question a man on his death bed for 5 hours although they don't think he is a suspect. How odd and merciless!

    What were they hoping for?

    The dying man would make a false confession in exchange for promised money for his children?

    The dying man (throat cancer) would mumble something that could be construed as a confession?

    Good this game was stopped!

  12. as the chap is going to die, he does not bother to accept a few pounds to say : Yes It was me!.

    And the next step, is to miraculously find Maddy's body
    (after the supossed confession).

    You guys, have to sing other tune.

  13. New hero now I see.

    The man is a violent paedophile and has been jailed several times and is still being investigated for other crimes. Stop spreading rubbish. Even if he is not a suspect he may well know who is.

    How pathetic defending paedophiles!

  14. Really very happy. Gonçalo's documentary with subtitling on You Tube is already seen more than 7500 times.
    Not by Portugueses, I think, because they have seen it already on TV.
    When will the McCanns start sueing Amaral?

  15. The dog barked only at Maddie's T-shirt, not at the pants.
    After dead, she was wearing only the T-shirt and probably before too.
    Why didn't the Mccanns dressed her up on a decent way till 10.00pm? And than the other pajama?
    A cadaver can urinate and the PJ would find drugs in her urine.
    Or blood? where did that blood come from?

  18. Hewlett is over.... Which paedophile is next on the police (British or PJ} list?

    Mccann's please, next time choose one younger, somebody on his 30th or 40th, two years ago... An athletic man, strong ennough to jump the window with a 4 years old on his arms and a olympic winner because in less then 30 minutes, he crossed the town carrying Madeleine.

    Are you believing that you can fool us all?... We are following all your stories since the beginning and we are old ennough and in a good mental health to believe in monster tales and to be foolished with so pathetic stories.
    Hewlett, was the biggest mistake that you have made recently. This man was 62 years old, two years ago, already ill. Where and how he matches Jane Tanner or the smiths description? RIDICULOUS!!!
    YOUR MISTAKE SHOW'S US HOW MENTAL ILL YOU ARE. YOU SHOULD FIRE YOUR DETECTIVES AND YOUR SPIN MAN BEFORE THEY DROP YOU IN A DARK AND DEEP SUICIDE ROOM. THEY "DONT LEAVE STONE UNTURNED" To assault Madeleine's Fund and get a LUXURY salary for so RUBBISH WORK. YOU SHOULD SUE YOUR DETECTIVES AND MR. MITCHELL FOR BRINGUING YOU TO A SO RIDICULOUS SITUATION.

    WHEN will come somebody with ennough COURAGE, on BRITISH GOVERNMMENT, to STOP that PRIVATE INVESTIGATION, and declare it ILLEGAL?
    What if all suspects in a crime, start a private investigation? Think on that, Mr. Brown. Europe have rules and everybody should act according with law, without exceptions. YOU ARE DESTROYING UK INTERNATIONAL IMAGE and give to terrorists the right to start their own investigation against the law of european countrys!!!! INNACCEPTABLE... and as more time passe, more dangerous became that permission.....

  19. Are we really going to see the maccannns on trial and justice served for all this they are a very well protected couple. although I would say Kate Maccann looks dreadful.

    We need Gordon Brown out of office that may not be untill May next year the man is power mad and hanging on!( I am ashamed to be British) and a new govement in Portugal they have both protected this couple.

    Dr Gerry is very cunning and will fight this to the end, imagine them both exposed all over the world as liars they will not have that. Both now are in denial thats a very powerful emotion. I think they are now believing there own lies.

    We need Gods help in all this If you are a beliver, Pray for the truth, Pray for little Madelaine, and Pray for Mr Amerel( one brave Man.) Portugal be proud of him.

  23. Nothing to do with this post but can anyone give me some information about this enemy of true justice that calls itself ROSIEPOPS? I often see the name mentioned but know nothing else!

  24. SB...indirectly Rosieplops is to do with this post as they are pro-McCann who attack those who seek the truth. 'She' and Rhodes and Chaos Raptors and PFA and now this 'studies in diseased minds' crap are all related. I visited that blog and my computer crashed. If they are team McCann then they are very evil people because they claim they are the ones being attacked and having to tell the cops. They're all extremely childish, but to be getting into people's private messages and displaying them on their blog is just plain wrong.

    Do the mods know what's going on at the 3 a's? Why don't they secure the site and stop those people from getting in and stealing messages and personal info? Maybe their just deliberately trying to cause unrest because anyone could be typing those messages, theirs nothing to suggest their genuine.

    They say Beo left the site insecure but they obviously went looking to get in anyway, otherwise how did they find it to be insecure? Their after all the main players: Bren, Joana, Kazlux, LA and others, trying to discredit them.

    Sorry to pinch so much space Joana, delete if you want.

  26. I'm not sure the term paedophile applies to Hewlitt. Yes, he has a record for assaults on teenagers when he was a younger man, but does that make him a paedophile?
    I can only assume that being attracted to the sexually mature is normal, being that the age of consent in some European countries is as low as Thirteen years of age.
    I also notice that the media prefer to show photo's of Hewlitt as a younger, healthier individual and not the dying, shadow of a man he actually is, now.
    He's been questioned about an incident back in 1975 when he was in his late twenties, not the 60+ years of age, he is now.

  27. The 'detectives' should be trying to interview their master and mistress.

    Their mistress seems to be under the impression that a hinged door will remain rigidly fixed in a certain position, even when her husband and their incredibly helpful friends have been in and out of her apartment helpfully checking her children for her.

    Their master seems to be more concerned about which side of the road he chats on than holding a reconstruction of the 'abduction' of his child.

    What a farce! And the UK authorities, what are they doing about the fraud being perpetrated across the UK press? Thats right, NOTHING.

  29. AH! AH! The Big Joke is on Mr. Pinto Monteiro interview, to Expresso Newspaper " Today the justice is independent from political power, which not always hapen in the pass, before 25 April 1974...."

    He is not living in the same country that we all, for 2 years, were talking about - Portugal ... and all political pressures involved on mediatic cases: "MADDIE", "CASA PIA", "FREEPORT", "FURACAO", "APITO DOURADO", " VALE E AZEVEDO".
    Contradicting his first purpose, Portugal is the country where Only normal and anonym people get investigated untill the end and framed by justice. TWO YEARS PASSED SINCE MAY 3, 2007, and this was a lesson that we all learned... The VIP, they run away fooling the public with idiots and insiltuous attitudes.

    We can see how unconfortable Mr. Monteiro is, during the interview, specially when he assumes what we all know for long and long time: The justice was not well!!!!
    Something must be done quickly if they dont want the power falling in the streets. Portuguese citizens are getting fed-up with all the pressures and the way that the country is ruled. We can see now, that Maddie case became a TABU which the Attorney general avoid to talk about. AND there is a clear reason for that, in our minds: THE CASE WAS EARLY AND WRONGLY SHELVED... MUST BE RE-OPPENED AND INVESTIGATED WITHOUT PRESSURES AND WITH EVERY SINGLE SUSPITION INVESTIGATED DEEP AND PROPERLY DOESN'T MATTER IF IS related with a BRITISH, PORTUGUESE OR OTHER NATIOALITY citizen, AND DOESN'T MATTER IF IS A VIP OR NOT. The storie will not fade and will not go away from the newspaper without being solved.

    I'm AFFRAID THAT PINTO Monteiro will resigned or will be fired by the PR, soon, if justice was not credited quickly. The European elections was only the start of a historic lesson to all that play without scrupulous, with the moral of the public. THEY WILL LOOSE... BECAUSE WE WANT JUSTICE FOR MADELEINE. IT WAS NOT THE ECONOMICAL CRISIS, WHICH WAS UNDER THE BAD RESULTS TO THE PORTUGUESE GOVERNMENT IN LAST EUROPEAN ELECTION, IT WAS THE CORRUPTION IN JUSTICE.... IMORAL AND UNACCEPTABLE!

    Yes, but can we expect any real change from whoever wins the next elections, from whoever becomes the new Prime-Minister and his/her new cabinet of ministers, the new Minister of Justice, the new Public Prosecutor?...I don't think so...unless there will be another "25 April", some sort of political cathaclism! For me, at the moment, PS or PSD are the same crap, both have skeletons in the closet and hidden agendas, so not much of a chance for anything to change really...remember what happened to Dr. Amaral's intentions of running for Mayor of an algarvian city, and the rumours of meetings between Gerry McCann and someone of importance within the PSD!

  31. Olá a todos. Cheguei agora do Algarve, estive num hotel junto à praia, com piscina, relvado, pinheiros, enfim do género do resort em que os McCann e os amigos estiveram hospedados. Éramos duas famílias no meio de outras tantas com crianças num puro divertimento e até questionámos a improbabilidade de acontecer um rapto num ambiente tão familiar e tão receptivo a estrangeiros com filhos e com segurança porque as áreas são mais ou menos privadas e os empregados circulam por ali a todo o momento. A partir do 2º ou 3º dia os rostos começam a ser familiares, as pessoas cruzam-se no lobby, tendem a tomar o pequeno almoço na mesma mesa, as crianças fazem amizades e reconhecem os seus pares. Não há indiferença, as pessoas estão ligadas. A grande diferença entre nós e os McCann é que a maioria das famílias gozavam os filhos durante o dia na praia ou na piscina à tardinha. O clube das crianças também estava disponível para os pais deixarem os seus filhos em segurança. As famílias jantavam juntas porque a hotelaria está preparada para isso. As crianças ficam acordadas até mais tarde porque estão de férias e o ambiente que se gera proporciona essa permanência e convívio entre gerações. Vi crianças muito pequeninas da idade do Sean e Amelie a dançar e a brincar muito animadas. A minha filha que tem a mesma idade que a Madeleine teria hoje se fosse viva, apesar de nadar toda a manhã na praia e à tarde na piscina, depois do jantar estava revigorada e bem acordada às 9 e as 10h como os outros meninos (até mais pequenos). Enfim, ou vamos de férias e integramos as crianças no nosso programa diário, ou contratamos babysiters para não estarem sós, ou, não levamos as crianças e deixamo-las em segurança com familiares. O que não podemos é fingir que somos solteiros e não temos responsabilidades. Uma noite, quando descíamos para o lobby pela escadas, a minha filha caíu. Assim que dobrei o lance de escadas, estava de cabeça para baixo e com uma perna fora dos degraus e muito, muito assustada. A alcatifa amorteceu a queda mas podia ter sido sério. Nunca estaremos imunes aos acidentes dos nossos filhos mas podemos estar lá, "lamber-lhes as feridas", amaciar-lhes os sustos e assumir as nossas responsabilidades pensando que a verdade por muito dolorosa que seja é SEMPRE libertadora. Uma Oração a todos os pais por esta missão tão difícil que é ser um farol na vida dos nossos filhos. Uma Oração de compaixão pelos McCann que dificilmente voltarão a ser livres. Deus nos Guarde e Livre desta dor.

  33. Breaking News sunday Mirror UK

    The prime 'person of interest' of hired cops probing Maddie McCann’s disappearance insisted last night: “I’ve never set eyes on her.”

    Dying paedophile Raymond Hewlett, 64, angrily denied claims he was twice close enough to her to notice her distinctive right eye.

    He said: “I have never seen her and anyone who says anything different is wrong.”

    The pervert, who has a lifelong history of abusing little girls, was only a few miles from Praia Da Luz when Maddie vanished in 2007. But he claimed he had only been to the Portuguese resort in 2002.

    He refuses to speak to investigators hired by the McCanns. But he was grilled at home in Aachen, Germany, by West Yorkshire police last week over the 1975 murder of schoolgirl Lesley Molseed and rape of a girl of eight in Yorkshire.
