Kate McCann acusa a Polícia Portuguesa de encobrir casos de abuso sexual


ilustração de Peter Hanan (retirada daqui)

De acordo com os média ingleses, no blitz mediático de promoção ao livro de Kate McCann iniciado esta semana em Inglaterra, nomeadamente no tablóide Sun que publica uma serialização em exclusivo de extractos do livro, o casal McCann acusa a Polícia Judiciária no Algarve de encobrir “uma série de casos de abuso sexual de crianças”. Kate escreveu no seu livro que foi avisada destes casos pelo ex-cônsul britânico do Algarve, Bill Henderson. Alegadamente o ex-cônsul inglês terá dito aos pais da criança misteriosamente desaparecida no Algarve que “vários casos de homens a meterem-se na cama com crianças” já tinham acontecido naquela área.

Kate alega que quando o Ministério Público divulgou a documentação referente ao processo de investigação no Verão de 2008, ela descobriu “cinco casos de crianças britânicas que tinham sido abusadas sexualmente nas suas camas, enquanto estavam em férias e enquanto os seus pais dormiam noutro quarto”, os quais se teriam passado “a uma hora da Praia da Luz” e nos “três anos que antecederam o desaparecimento de Madeleine”.

Kate diz que a PJ falhou em investigar as possíveis ligações destes casos ao da Madeleine e ainda que “esses casos demonstram que os turistas britânicos em férias eram alvos” e que os casos “foram varridos para debaixo do tapete”.

Kate que recusou responder às 48 perguntas (ler em baixo) feitas pela PJ durante o interrogatório de Setembro de 2007, e que nunca fez a reconstrução da noite fatídica, admitiu ter-se armado em “detective amadora” durante uma das várias visitas feitas à Praia da Luz, onde pediu a um amigo que representasse o papel do alegado raptor de Madeleine.

Noutros jornais britânicos as especulações multiplicam-se, sempre com a nuance lusofóbica: “bungling Portuguese police” ou “botched Portuguese police investigation”.

Entretanto o Express avança com aquele que deverá ser o 14º ou 15º suspeito, desta um pedófilo Alemão que confessou ter raptado e assassinado três rapazes com idades compreendidas entre os 8 e os 13 anos de idade. O Spiegel tem a história original, onde nenhuma referencia é feita a Madeleine McCann. No entanto, e como já é hábito nada impede Clarence Mitchell, o relações públicas do casal McCann de fazer “ligações”  algo desazadas: “Os nossos investigadores privados sabem acerca deste homem desde há um mês e farão uma ligação com a Polícia Alemã. A investigação ainda está nos primeiros passos.”

Nada de novo, portanto.

PS. O Daily Mail acaba de (re)publicar uma história de 2009 sobre o duo de pedófilos e assassinos Charles O'Neill/William Lauchlan, que foram condenados a prisão perpétua por um tribunal Escocês, em 2010. Diz o Mail que a “Madeleine McCann police”, ou seja a polícia inglesa de Leicestershire questionou estes dois homens no âmbito do caso Maddie, mas, shhhh!, que a polícia de Leicestershire não pode comentar porque a investigação está a ser liderada pela Polícia Judiciária de Lisboa.

Tradução literal do excerto do livro de Kate McCann publicado pelo tablóide Sun
(para referencia e comparação com as 48 perguntas)

«Tudo estava silencioso. Depois notei que a porta para o quarto das crianças estava toda aberta, não como a tínhamos deixado.

Andei até ali e gentilmente comecei a empurrá-la. Subitamente a porta fechou-se com brusquidão como se tivesse sido fechada por uma corrente de ar.

Um nadinha surpreendida, virei-me para ver se tinha deixado as portas do pátio abertas e deixado entrar a aragem. Reconstituí os meus passos e verifiquei que não tinha.

De volta ao quarto das crianças, abri a porta um pouco mais, e assim que o fiz vislumbrei a cama de Madeleine.

Não conseguia distingui-la lá muito bem no escuro. Lembro-me de olhar para ali, e olhar para ali demorou provavelmente poucos segundos, apesar de ter parecido muito mais tempo.

Parece estúpido agora, mas não liguei a luz imediatamente. Força do hábito, suponho: ter cuidado para evitar que as crianças acordem a todo o custo.

Quando me apercebi que a Madeleine não estava mesmo ali, fui até ao nosso quarto para ver se ela estava na nossa cama. Isso explicava a porta aberta.

À descoberta de outra cama vazia, surgiu a primeira onda de pânico. Enquanto corria de volta para o quarto das crianças as cortinas que estavam fechadas esvoaçaram numa rajada de vento.

O meu coração teve um solavanco assim que vi aquilo, por detrás delas, a janela completamente aberta e as persianas totalmente levantadas. Náusea, terror, incredulidade, medo. Um medo frio. Oh meu Deus, não! Por favor, não!

Na cama de Madeleine, as pontas das cobertas, ao cimo à direita, ainda estavam dobradas formando um triângulo bem feito. O Cuddle Cat {boneco de peluche em forma de gato, lit. gato de abraçinhos} e o seu cobertor de princesa cor-de-rosa estavam em cima da cama onde os tinha deixado quando lhe dei um beijo de boa noite.

Corri rapidamente até à segunda cama, do outro lado dos berços de viagem, onde os gémeos dormiam, absortos, e olhei pela janela. Não faço ideia do que esperava ver ali. Recusei-me a acreditar naquilo que já sabia, e talvez, entrando automaticamente num modo de emergência médica bem ensaiado, percorri o apartamento para excluir todas as outras possibilidades, mentalmente assinalando as 'caixas' que no fundo, sabia já terem sido assinaladas.

Procurei no armário do quarto das crianças. Corri até à cozinha, abrindo todas as portas dos armários, no nosso quarto, nos armários, dentro e fora da casa de banho, tudo em 15 segundos, antes de correr precipitadamente pelas portas do pátio e até ao Gerry e aos nossos amigos.

Assim que a nossa mesa estava à vista comecei a gritar. “A Madeleine foi-se! Alguém a levou!”»

As 48 perguntas da Judiciária às quais Kate não respondeu

1- No dia 3 de Maio de 2007, pelas 22h00, quando entrou no apartamento, o que viu, o que fez, onde procurou, o que manuseou?

2- Procurou dentro do armário do quarto do casal? (disse que não respondia)

3- (Exibidas duas fotografias do armário do seu quarto) Pode descrever o seu conteúdo?

4- Por que razão o cortinado por detrás do sofá defronte da janela lateral (cuja fotografia lhe foi exibida) está mexido? Alguém passou por detrás desse sofá?

5- Quanto tempo demorou a busca que fez no apartamento a seguir à detecção do desaparecimento da sua filha Madeleine?

6- Por que disse desde logo que Madeleine fora raptada?

7- Partindo da premissa de que a Maddie havia sido raptada, por que deixou os gémeos sozinhos em casa para ir ao Tapas para dar o alarme? Até porque o suposto raptor podia ainda estar no apartamento.

8- Por que não perguntou aos gémeos, naquele momento, o que havia acontecido à irmã ou por que não lhes perguntou mais tarde?

9- Quando deu o alarme no Tapas o que disse concretamente e quais as palavras?

10- O que aconteceu depois de dar o alarme no Tapas?

11- Por que foi avisar os seus amigos em vez de gritar da varanda?

12- Quem contactou as autoridades?

13- Quem participou nas buscas?

14- Alguém fora do grupo, nos minutos seguintes, ficou a saber do desaparecimento de Maddie?

15- Alguma vizinha lhe ofereceu ajuda após o desaparecimento?

16- O que significa a expressão 'we let her down'?

17- A Jane referiu-lhe ter visto um homem com uma criança naquela noite?

18- Como foram contactadas as autoridades e que força policial foi avisada?

19- Durante as buscas, e já com a presença policial, em que locais foi procurada Maddie, como e de que forma?

20- Por que é que os gémeos não acordaram durante essa busca ou quando foram para o piso superior?

21- Para quem telefonou após os factos?

22- Ligou para a SKY News?

23- Sabia do perigo de ligar para a Comunicação Social, porque isso podia influenciar o raptor?

24- Pediram a presença de um padre?

25- Qual o modo de divulgação do rosto de Madeleine, se fotografia, se outros?

26- É verdade que durante a busca ficou sentada na cama de Maddie sem se mexer?

27- Qual o seu comportamento naquela noite?

28- Conseguiu dormir?

29- Antes da viagem a Portugal fez algum comentário sobre um mau pressentimento ou um presságio?

30- Qual o comportamento de Madeleine?

31- Maddie sofria de alguma doença ou tomava medicação?

32- Qual o relacionamento de Madeleine com os irmãos?

33- Qual o relacionamento de Maddie com os irmãos, amigos e os colegas de escola?

34- Quanto à sua vida profissional, em quantos e em quais hospitais trabalhou?

35- Qual a sua especialidade médica?

36- Trabalhava por turnos, em urgências ou noutros serviços?

37- Trabalhava diariamente?

38- Em determinada altura deixou de trabalhar? Porquê?

39- Os filhos gémeos têm dificuldade de adormecer, são irrequietos e isso provoca-lhe intranquilidade?

40- É verdade que em certas alturas se sentia desesperada pela atitude dos filhos e que isso a deixava muito intranquila?

41- É verdade que em Inglaterra chegou a pensar entregar a guarda de Madeleine a um familiar?

42- Em Inglaterra, dava medicação aos filhos? Que tipo de medicação?

43- No auto foram-lhe exibidos filmes de inspecção cinotécnica, com carácter forense, onde se pode observar a marcação por parte destes relativamente a indicações de odor a cadáver humano e vestígios hemáticos também humanos e somente de carácter humano, bem como todos os comentários do perito responsável. Terminada a visualização, e após sinalização de odor de cadáver no seu quarto junto ao armário e por detrás do sofá encostado à janela da sala de estar, disse que não podia explicar nada mais do que já referira?

44- Também assinalado, pelo cão de detecção, sangue humano por detrás do sofá , disse que não podia explicar nada mais do que já referira

45- Assinalado o odor de cadáver proveniente da viatura que alugaram um mês depois do desaparecimento disse que não pode explicar nada mais do que já referiu?

46- Assinalado o sangue humano na mala do veículo disse que não pode explicar nada mais do que já referira?

47- Confrontada com o resultado da recolha de ADN de Maddie, cuja análise foi efectuada por um laboratório britânico, por detrás do sofá e da bagageira do veículo, disse que não pode explicar nada mais do que já referira?

48- Teve alguma responsabilidade ou intervenção no desaparecimento da filha?

Pergunta a que respondeu: Tem consciência de que o facto de não responder às perguntas põe em causa a investigação, a qual procura saber o que se passou com a sua filha? Disse que sim, se a investigação assim o pensa.

  1. To the non-Portuguese readers the above is a recap of the McCann's media blitz published in the last two days by the UK media, focusing on Kate McCann's accusation of a Portuguese Police cover-up. Fell free to comment in your language of choice though :)

  2. kate mccann is grasping at straws and is still trying to prove her innocence and there are still people out there who believe every word she utters,but she knows what happend to Madeliene as do gerry and the tapas pals.
    with all this talk of paedo's from her why has she not brought up the gaspers statement and given her views on this.

  3. Thank you Joana

    The media blitz is all it is, mass marketing for the book. No substance, no truth, nothing but froth and fantasy. After this media created fuss has died down, Madeleine McCann will still be missing. She always will be. The truth will remain intact and those who seek justice for Madeleine will feel more determined, more committed and more united in their purpose. I will be in the Algarve in a few weeks time. Any fellow Brits spotted reading the McCanns book will be handed a copy of K.Gaspars witness statement.

  4. More nonsense and lies as usual.

    The book is now down to £9 :a.
    The first time I looked it was around £12, then 10, now 9:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/ref=pe_30651_24778501_pe_22Q3/0593067916

    Very few pre-orders I suppose?

    It will all be about Kate herself anyway, mixed with some vague lies about the holiday in PDL, some more hypocritical lies about how much they cared for Madeleine (so much they never searched for her) and how badly treated they were - tedious and nauseating stuff.

    Please give £10 to a charity of your choice instead --- you will be helping real people in real need instead of fattening the private coffers of the McCanns.

  6. How much more verble abuse are the PJ and Portugual going to take from these two child neglectors.
    What do they have to do (apart from telling the truth) befor Portugual decides enough is enough, I'm sure if they did responde they would be protecting their tourist industry, which imo has been badly effected, I know poeple over the last 4 years have said they would never go to Portugual now, after what the PJ did to the McCanns.

    Granted these same people could have changed their minds about the Mcs now, but I do think mud sticks, if you dont protect your self from it.

  7. It's there at the top http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/bestsellers/books/ref=sv_b_3 but it was artificially manipulated to spike the book ratings. You can become an Amazon best seller for selling as few as 100 copies in a specific concentrated period of time. Just google for "become an amazon bestseller"

  8. Anonymous 3, "Any fellow Brits spotted reading the McCanns book will be handed a copy of K.Gaspars witness statement."

    And why not? Clearly they are trying to distance themselves from any accusations or suspicions of paedophilia within their own group through Kate McCanns book.

  9. Well I have not used these words in a long time but a few expletives come to mind. She has now mixed in a dark world. It is just amazing that she pulls her tricks on every occasion and her child is still missing. She announces her book knowing that this child is not going to turn up. And off she goes. Writing for months and has to ask others to 'jog her memory'. Her child is still missing. Thinks up more accusations, it is four years and her child is still missing. Where is your evidence, madame. We have been watching now for 4 years!!! We have no knowledge of the sun newspaper but as far as one can look it really is the very last on the list to get involved with, it is not meant to be read it is full of terrible pictures. Your standards have dropped, madame. We cannot support this paper anyway. Stay out of it folks. Let's fight them not join them. Who will pick up this book? Poor!! all the way round. If we want to learn english this is not the book to read and the information is meant for the lawyers to sort out. Lie low and wait for the thump. The British are really being shown up as deteriorating, what a shame.

  10. Originally the price of the book was 20 pounds.

    I think Amazon is trying to sell it now for 9,00 because there are so many limits about it that they fear they will not get rid of it.

    And they willn't.

  11. Espanta-me a vergonhosa passividade do Ministerio da justica portuguesa, de quem chefia a policia judiciaria e de todos os deputados portugueses com assento parlamentar na Assembleia da republica e no parlamento europeu, perante tao serias e descabidas acusacoes. Fazer de conta que nao se passa nada, ignorar a nuvem que se adensa nao resolve o problema nem credibiliza Portugal.
    Para mim, e clara a estrategia dos Mccann com este livro. Alem de tentarem arrecadar uns milhoes de Euros nas suas contas bancarias para pagarem os luxuosos servicos desta maquina de perversos e ficarem com algum depois das despesas pagas, PRECISAM DESESPERADAMENTE DE ENCERRAR O CAPITULO DA PROCURA DA FILHA. Tudo isto e para desaparecerem de cena sem terem de ser julgados num tribunal a serio. Continuar com a charada e correr um risco grande de acabar seriamente investigado e a responder num tribunal internacional. Depois, comecam a esgotar-se as fontes possiveis de extorcao de dinheiro. O livro e a ultima tentativa. Estes advogados nao sao movidos pela emocao do caso. Tem de correr avultadas quantias nas suas contas bancarias para poderem descer tao baixo. Sao a prova de que tudo se vende e tudo se compra. Venderam a etica e a moral e vao tambem vendendo a honra.
    Portanto aos mccann so resta assumirem que a filha morreu. As maos de um monstro claro, e de preferencia bem depois do dia 3 de Maio de 2007. Que cor, raca, aspecto tem o monstro, e o ultimo capitulo desta saga. Depois voltam para um mundo feito de mentiras, mas privado. Provavelmente longe de Inglaterra porque Kate nunca mais podera olhar ninguem de frente. A mascara nao o permitira. E Gerry e os gemeos terao a sua vida bem dificultada, sobretudo porque ha criancas que na sua ingenuidade fazem perguntas que incomodam e nao aceitam respostas estupidas.
    Nao acredito que algum dia haja o filme. O filme e perigos. concentra multidoes a porta de uma sala e gera emocoes que podem facilmente transbordar para aquilo que os Mccann menos querem- multidoes a questiona-los, a procura das respostas que eles nao deram a policia. O livro e o ultimo assalto aos bolsos do publico e o selo perfeito a carimbar a vergonhosa prestacao de Pinto monteiro aos comandos da Procuradoria geral da Republica. Desculpe mas nao tem t... para nada.

  12. I also emailed amazon to ask about stocking Mr amaral's book,they replied that it is not listed at the moment but to keep looking on the website and that they will do their very best to stock it and sell it,so if someone knows the honourable Mr Amaral please ask him to try his best to publish it in English.

  13. Dear Joana, in my edition of the SUN printed in Belgium there is an addition between the first and second sentence. An important addition.

    "At first I assumed that Matt must have moved it."

    Did you leave it out? Or was it added to certain editions?

  16. Joana,

    I don't know the McCanns, and I don't hate them. I dearly hope that little Madeleine is alive and well, but sadly I don't think she is.

    I, like thousands of others, have followed this unhappy and tragic case since it happened, and have at numerous stages in the saga smelt a rat, in fact a series of them. All through the story there have been inconsistencies, like the door open or shut, locked or open, like the frequency of checking, like the timeframe from their statements and the bizarre timeframe sketched out on the first day in one of poor Madeleine's drawing books. There was the crying the previous night, the Gaspar statement, the refusal to answer questions, the rush for extradition lawyers, the strange business of the little local church and its key. The dogs are not, of course, sacred. But they did indicate, and it's that collection of indicative evidence that bugs me. I suppose it's the same with all the others who are not McCann believers.

    There has been a consistent refusal to go back for a reconstruction, and a consistent resistance to even mention the £2.5 million reward - still on offer - put up by A Sunday Newspaper.

    When I saw the photographs taken at the Church Service a few days after Madeleine's disappearance - the laughing triumphal parents with flowers and smiles - I thought something didn't add up, and when I saw that their website's PayPal button functioned perfectly but the button to mail them with any information was just a button with no code (that's the anti-spam code letters bit) I thought that didn't add up either.

    When one of their chums was interviewed on Radio 4 she made odd comments about how they were all doctors and would know how to resuscitate a child I wondered about that, too.

    When they went touring - to the States, and to see the Pope, it looked more like a celebrity trip. But they have rather courted the media, haven't they.

    I don't hate them, as I said. I don't find them at all attractive, and how a journalist whose very professional life involves words can find them articulate escapes me. I don't want their heads on spikes, nor do I want a lynch mob. I am not vile. I am not mentally deranged, I am not jealous of them (as one of their earlier interviews suggested may be the case with their detractors).

    I just plain don't believe them. I don't believe their little girl was abducted, I don't believe their stories, and I don't believe the dogs and the Police and the locals and the British Police and the British Government and the staff at the resort and the Portuguese Judiciary were all wrong.

    I don't know what did happen. But there's one thing that Kate has said in public hat I do believe. That she does know. She was there.

    So if I don't want their heads on spikes and all the rest what do I want?

    I would like to see the case reopened, the reconstruction performed (by British as well as Portuguese Police if necessary), and all the police questions answered. I would like their fund investigated; it has, after all, had millions through it. I would like their private investigators investigated, too. They sure have been unlucky with them.

    Most of all I would like the truth. I'm pretty sure that hasn't been aired yet.

  17. Good morning dear Johanna, I just translated the excerpt that was published yesterday online by the Sun here http://bit.ly/iqK6MQ, I noticed that they've added an extra excerpt today in this page http://bit.ly/lMwp7b - it has yesterday's date but the response headers show the webpage was updated today (Last-Modified: Sun, 08 May 2011 11:06:40 GMT).

    The Sun two versions differ. The first one, translated above, starts the excerpt at "All was silent. Then I noticed that the door to the children's bedroom was open quite wide, not how we had left it.

    I walked over and gently began to pull it to. Suddenly it slammed shut, as if caught by a draught.

    A little surprised, I turned to see if I'd left the patio doors open and let in the breeze. Retracing my steps, I confirmed that I hadn't. (...)", no mention of Matt.

    The second one starts at "AT 10pm I went back to the apartment myself. I entered the sitting room via the patio doors, as Gerry and Matt had done, and stood there, listening, for a few seconds.

    All was silent. Then I noticed that the door to the children's bedroom was open quite wide, not how we had left it.

    At first I assumed that Matt must have moved it. I walked over and gently began to pull it to. Suddenly it slammed shut, as if caught by a draught.

  19. I don't understand why the door did not slam when Matthew came in through the patio door,causing a draught, or at the moment Kate came in through the same door.Or why it did not slam by itself when the abductor came in or left through the window.If it did slam when Kate touched it, it would have happened before.

    What is the use to write a gagged book? No comments, nothing.

  25. I don't know the book(none of us does it yet) but I'm convinced that if Kate would tell the truth she would be capable to restart her life.Prison or not,she could better be honest instead of hiding the facts.
    Hiding them will cost her life.
    Instead of suicide, leaving her children behind, she can be helped by many specialised people.
    Come on,Kate, before you get mentally ill.

    ReplyDelete
  26. 24- totally agree, while I dispise Gerry my firm belief is that this situation was instigated by madam Kate and she most definately knows the truth.

    ReplyDelete
  27. So what comes next?
    Who is going to stop this? Who has the power to reopen the case? Who else than the McCanns that is, because if we have to wait for them...

    It's all very well writing on forums and more and more people becoming aware of their lies, distortions, fakeness and abuse of the public through the press, but when will someone finally stop them? Someone who has a voice that speaks the truth to the world...
    I wish Oprah had been even more clearly doubtful when she interviewed them. Someone has to break the 'spell'. What is Sr Amaral's plan? And the portuguese police, how long before too much is too much?

    I find it increasingly irritating to witness them go on with the circus and the hyporcrisy, and to hear no official reply to it. It's like their voice is stronger than the voice or truth (and reason!)
    I hope no one buys their book and they find themselves 'naked', stripped of their 'power' cercle of lawyers and creepy Clarence.

    How can they believe anyone who has read even just a little about this case, anyone who is interested enough to google the story, will for a second trust them?
    I can totally see she wrote that book to make it emotional and heartbreaking. Her 'version' of the truth won't sell, a so called heartbroken mother story a little more... if you live in a place without internet access...

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thanks Joana for clearing that up, amending the amendmends, that is their modus operandi.
    ATM I am overwhelmed with the amount of amendmends, the so far most important bit is the claim that Gerry formed a group with David for the search after the alarm. You know, the time where he met the Smiths.
    Incredibly amazing stuff, digging herself deeper and deeper.

  30. Barabara Ellen Observer today calls sites like this vile.IF she has read the PJ files and followed the case for 4 years, she is entitled to her opinions, but most of our journalists seem to be unaware of the background to this case and the fact that the McCanns only need to ask for the case to be re-opened and return to Portugal for the re-enactement they refused to do. They do not need to raise money for this.
    One day someone will crack and spill the story. Loyalties alter, relationships move on and people slip from power.
    Also we have a paedophile suspect of the week. A man called Ney from Germany.

  33. #33,
    I read that Gerry McCann was seen around that late hour heading in the direction of the church, him along with another Tapas male, not sure if Oldfield or Payne. If they were "searching" I do not know...

  34. ..."o casal McCann acusa a Polícia Judiciária no Algarve de encobrir “uma série de casos de abuso sexual de crianças”. Kate escreveu no seu livro que foi avisada destes casos pelo ex-cônsul britânico do Algarve, Bill Henderson. Alegadamente o ex-cônsul inglês terá dito aos pais da criança misteriosamente desaparecida no Algarve que “vários casos de homens a meterem-se na cama com crianças” já tinham acontecido naquela área."

    If this is true, Mr.Henderson has a lot of explaining to do! Was he talking about british paedos? It's common knowledge that some are living in the Algarve with the "blessing" of the british authorities.
    Will he come forward to confirm or deny Kate's revelation...? I doubt it, he will play dead for sure...if only the portuguese authorities would grow some "balls" and demand explanations!

  35. Comeca a lexiviacao vergonhosa da imagem dos Mccann tambem em Portugal. O artigo do Correio da Manha e um desfiar de lamurias. Coitadinha da Kate que quis suicidar-se nadando em alto mar ( talvez fosse a procura de algo que o mar tera guardado). A Kate que se imolou em dor fisica para suportar a dor psicologica. Enfim... um artigo cuja leitura provoca nauseas e contrasta bem com os comentarios dos leitores, esses sim mais incisivos e realistas.
    Os jornais portugueses devem fazer algum trabalho de casa, afinal importantes factos estiveram e estao disponiveis e esses falam mais alto que as lamechas de Kate. Nao merece um artigo a fotografia do casal sorridente a porta da Igreja da Luz a 12 de Maio de 2007? Era o dia em que Madeleine faria 4 anos e estava desaparecida ha 9 dias. Era realmente a cara de um casal deprimido e em sofrimento a que esta retratada naquelas imagens.
    Nao merecem um artigo as caixas que o casal espalhou pelos hoteis Algarvios com a cara da filha estampada direccionando para o site Findmadeleine e pedindo dinheiro a turistas e residentes?
    Porque nao responder as mentiras que vem de Inglaterra com os factos vividos em Portugal? Os jornais sabem destes factos. Deixem de nos envergonhar e de ser submissos. Honrem a vossa bandeira e respeitem os cidadaos portugueses. Uma crianca indefesa perdeu a vida e dela ou do que ela sofreu nada se fala. Pelo contrario, a imagem, a tragedia e o nome dela sao o sustento de um negocio perverso que alimenta muita insanidade e corrupcao.

    O Correio da Manha e mais um que vou deixar na prateleira.

  36. Cunning Gerry...it has been made very clear that the book is exclusively Kate's "baby", it's Kate's ramblings and accusations, Gerry is out of it...

  37. It might be right about this book, this could be their undoing, read tomorrows Daily Mail some revealing information which was not told to the PJ, as far as I know correct me if im wrong could this be classed as new evidence to open the investigation??

  38. Also in the Daily Mail Kate contradicts herself she says she slept with the kids the night before Maddie disappeared yet she says the next morning Maddie asked why didnt you come when we was crying?

  39. If Kate thought (from the article posted) that the British ambassador had information about paedophiles living in the Algarve that wasn't checked by the British and Portuguese police, then why didn't Kate insist the ambassador raise that at the time, or ask for the investigation to be reopened? I seem to have read that paedophiles were checked. Is Kate saying that the British police and ambassador weren't doing their jobs?

    I see in the Express and Mail we have attempted links with convicted suspects today, one of whom matches a photofit of eggman I've never seen before, who someone has suggested may (or may not presumably) have been in Praia da Luz at the time. According to one article, Leicester police are investigating, can this be true?

  40. It is disgusting that this couple make money from their daughters memory, what has become of the millions already raised by well meaning people. Their bogus investigations ensuring that nothing incriminating against them is found, now is the time to stop it. The mccanns appear to be in charge of their own criminal investigation dictating the terms of how it should be run, they are controlling of the media and for some reason nothing official is done. Their fraud and deception knows no bounds Madeleine PLC has provided them with substandial funds over the years, and they will not stop until the are officially stopped.
    Photographs and posed 'grief' staring out from newspapers makes me want to shout 'what has become of justice when criminals are allowed to do this? Why does the public accept this propaganda, research the case eventually it will be re-opened.

  42. They are all ears on the picture at the top. The best I've seen so far. Thank you Joana. And it is much better than that pose we've seen with the blue dress and wrist bands. Don't they just deserve each other. It seems to me that gerry has nothing more to say and his wife is carrying on the fight. Is a splitting showing now? Hoping kate may be reading here: A good idea will be to go back to revise the awful language so far. Brush up on your vocabulary. And we do not see a turn around as you are changing important details. Who did the editing on your book? You need a professional to change the dreadful, undigestible tone. Is this book going to be about you, kate? Then you have the wrong title. We are only interested in the wherabouts of the little girl you have abandoned and how you are going to produce the evidence that she has been abducted. You really do not need the verbosity to explain in one sentence where your child is being held. I'm almost sure you said once something like 'she is not in Portugal anymore' and 'you know as you were there'. We are hanging on your lips, well, in this case your words.

  43. I wish the Portuguese authorities would do something about the continuous insults to their police who searched all night long for Madeleine, along with all the locals, on the night she went missing, while the McCanns just took to their beds!

    Money certainly makes the world go around for this scheming couple! I fail to understand why the Express, after paying out thousands of pounds in compensation to the McCanns a couple of years ago, are now doing all they can to help them in their gross coverup.

    The McCanns have always come across as hard as nails to me and their stories so contradictory - how anyone can believe them beggars belief.

    All the pro-McCann comments in the newspapers are from those who have just read newspaper reports and believe every word, without using their brains to see they are being lied to.

    I hope and pray their lies will one day come back to haunt them as they would Madeleine if she were alive.

    Her latest chapter is that she and Gerry were they only ones looking for Maddy in the first 48hrs when in fact on a utube clip Kate is interviewed saying that her and Gerry didnt physically look but were busy doing other things, and its also said that Portuguese people took a week or more of work to look!!!

    DISGUSTING!!

  47. The book is disgusting. She is lying trough all her mouth. Today in the SUN online new Chap just to kill the image of the police. Kate saying she search her daughter early morning (May 4) with his husband and nobody was out looking for her. This is an insult not only for the police but for all the tourists and residents in PDL who left their work, their holidays, their life aside to search a little girl they believe could be near and just wondered off. The images of the search were in all news. Was the big search and the most expensive ever done in Portugal. How can she lie with such impunnity, like if the world is only UK and she can close her lies inside her home?
    Just to highlight how the search was, here is my translation from the book: "Porque adoptamos Maddie (Why we adopted Maddie)" written by Luis Castro, a journalist from RTP with contribution of many portuguese journalists from different papers/Tvs who covered the case::

    " Carlos Vaz, ex-image reporter from RTP was contracted by SKY News at 7:30 am. One hour after he was already in PDL. Was the first Cameraman to arrive and only two local journalists arrived before him. " GNR WAS ON GOING OUT WITH DOGS AND I START RECORDING THE SEARCH AROUND THE OCEAN CLUB. THEY SEARCH THE BUSHES, THE GARDENS OF THE HOUSES. THEY DID NOT APPLIED YET THIS ORANGE POWDER IN THE WINDOW OF THE FLAT AND THEY LET ME GO NEAR THE SWIMMING POOL"- said Carlos Vaz.
    The first images SKy had from the local were send by Carlos Vaz trough RTP-Faro.... Early morning on their Internet page,Sky News was already reproducing the words of the parents saying it was an abduction because the windows were damaged."...." Outside of the church, They spoke (parents) with journalists. Kate crys and while thanks the local comunnity all the support they gave to them, she says" WE CANNOT ASK MORE. PLEASE, KEEP PRAYING FOR MADELEINE. SHE IS LOVELY"......"In fact, next morning after being missing( 4 MAY), GNR already had send 30 officers, 2 cinotecnics team (man +dog), there was officers from PSP( This are incharged of things related with streets, trafic, cars search, closing roads, etc) from Lagos and PJ inspectors from portimao, one helicopter from the Civil protection( I don't know the equivalent in english)in the air, Maritime police in the sea and even the Red Cross and the firebrigades went on the search operation. In total, around 250 people, 100 of them were from PJ. Something never seen in Portugal... but that child is British and the Embassador John Buck never hide, since the first days, that he had privileged contacts with portuguese government: " I have spoken directly with portuguese ministers, with office of the Prime-Minister and with PJ. All have assure to me that they are doing everything that could be done to warranty the safe retour of Madeleine".
    " Cavaco Silva( President of the Republic) said: "Only can criticise who don't know what is being done. Will be very difficult to have the police doing more then what they are doing".
    Dear friends, judge yourselves what Kate is saying now on her book. Even regarding the effort done by the authiorities and locals/tourists, she is lying and contradicting her previous statements to the media. Before she thanks everybody for the great support, even the police(at the time she wanted sympathy to fool the people and touch their hearts with deposits/transfers money for the Fund and to fill the boxes in hotels).
    Was not Kate who outside Lisbon court, when a journalist ask her a question about the disturbing pictures, said that she didn't know because she did not read the files and never physical search her daughter? Then, what is that dream now about been outside with gerry early morning? Gerry was seen with one of the Tapas man. If she was out, where she left the twins?
    That lady need the evaluation of a team of PSychologists. She is a compulsive liar.

  50. Post 17. I too noticed this introduction of a reference back to othrs having been in the apartment. Clearly kate has not researched well - I pointed out at least two years ago that she could not have noticed the door in a different position as she had not been the last in the room, or so they claim - I beleive this is because in fact no one had been in to check the children from when Kate left to when Kate returned. But this may either be because the whole evenings account from them is fabricated - or because they gave any abductor plenty of time to perform an abduction. They are stuck between a rock and a hard place - to admit negligence or to fabricate to defend against negligence but withhold evidence that would be of value to the police. So one possibility is that Madeleine was in fact abducted - but they put their own defence in front of proving she was abducted - demanding we accept abduction and ignore negligence. Follish people, they have turned millions against them and made millions suspicious just to avoid a negligence charge - but I guess hindsight is a wonderful thing.

  51. A Kate escreveu o livro com muita leviandade. Desta vez, pisou o risco. Foi longe demais. Dizer que a busca mais cara que Portugal ja teve ( talvez uma das mais caras do mundo e de certeza mais cara que qualquer uma nos UK) nao aconteceu e que na madrugada/ manha de 4 Maio so ela e o marido procuraram a filha, e de uma leviandade gritante.
    Ha videos com eles a agradecerem o tremendo empenho feito pelas autoridades e os populares nas buscas. Ha depoimentos do Presidente da Republica, dos orgaos maximos da policia e da justica portuguesa a afirmarem que tudo o que havia a ser feito, tudo o que era possivel, foi feito. O mundo viu atraves das TVs, centenas, milhares de pessoas, policias, caes, tudo a procura da filha. Os jornalistas estiveram la e foram quem levou estas imagens a todo o mundo. Tambem estiveram la os jornalistas ingleses, incluindo os do The SUN. Mentiram naquela altura ou mentem agora? Enganaram o seu publico com aquelas imagens naquela altura ou tentam enganar agora dizendo nao ter sido verdade um facto que o mundo testemunhou?
    O The SUN conseguiu com a serializacao destas mentiras transformar-se na maior anedota de si mesmo. Dois pseudo-jornalistas( sempre os mesmos dois) tem sido pagos para darem cobertura as mentiras e jogadas do casal Mccann. Acabaram de descridibilizar ainda mais o jornal e insultar os colegas que estiveram na PDL. E certo que corria a boca cheia que so la andavam para beber umas cervejas e ter umas ferias pagas no Algarve. No intervalo deste lazer dedicavam-se a inventar noticias( ja que nada de novo havia) e a queimarem a imagem da policia. Estavam a ver-se ao espelho concerteza.
    Desta vez, Kate, construiste a tua propria armadilha. Espero que a PJ nao reaja ate lancares o livro das mentiras em portugal. Ou tens as costas bem quentes em portugal para escreveres mentiras que envolvem declaracoes do Presidente da Republica ou vais ter o processo reaberto ( como nao queres). Nao so para explicares o que fizeste a tua filha, mas tambem para provares o que dizes sobre as buscas e sobre os pedofilos que se deitavam na cama com criancas no Algarve. Quem eram os pedofilos? eram ingleses? e quem eram as criancas? eram portuguesas? Na tua cegueira de te defenderes do obvio tambem deixaste mal as autoridades do teu pais. E o Consul ingles, e bom que va a portugal pedir desculpa aos portugueses, sobretudo aos Algarvios porque a ter prestado tais declaracoes, sabia quem eram esses pedofilos e nao avisou as autoridades portuguesas, deixando a merce desses pedofilos todas as criancas que estavam em solo portugues.

  52. The accusations against the PJ and Goncalo Amaral, by the McCanns, have been going on since they arrived back from Praia da Luz, in September 2007. The PJ and Goncalo Amaral, have remained silent while these accusations have been going on and it looks like they are going to remain silent.

    The McCanns have the upper hand. They can do and say anything they like, without fear of retribution. If what I am saying is not true, why have the McCanns escaped prosecution, for their part in Madeleine's disappearance?

    Why are the McCanns being treated with kid gloves? What is it about the McCanns, that they have the power to gag the media? The media has never been scared of printing lies about innocent people, yet they're too scared to print the truth about the McCanns.The media are so sycophantic towards the McCanns, they even portray them as victims.


    What do the McCanns know, that prevents them from being brought to justice for their part in Madeleine's disappearance? They broke the law in Portugal and they are walking free. They appear to be above the law and that cannot be right.

  54. On finding Madeleine missing, Kate McCann ran out of the flat leaving the other two kids on their own, then went back & punched the apartment walls, phoned a priest and repeatedly threw herself down in prayer. Why didn’t she phone the police without delay, go out and search the streets, knock on doors and ask neighbours & passers-by if they‘d seen anything? She wasn’t lacking support - she and her husband had seven friends on hand to care for the twins. When a neighbour asked her what was happening KM told her to get lost (though in stronger terms). KM claims her child was abducted by paedophiles but was annoyed by an inquisitive neighbour, who, incidentally, is often the kind of person to notice something untoward. Absolutely ludicrous!

    It’s also ludicrous that any parent would choose to stay indoors screaming, shouting, praying and beating the walls instead of actively searching for their toddler whom they claim is outside in the cold and dark, snatched by a stranger. KM’s raging reaction is more that of a bereft parent, one who has lost all hope because they know their child is ‘gone’...not abducted. Unbelievably, KM says she waited until daylight to search and claims she and her husband were the only ones doing so. That’s probably because everyone else searched all night for her child - they searched in the dark until they dropped. Unlike the McCanns, they didn’t wait for daybreak to do so.

  55. Cumbrian GP part of child porn network

    Monday, 09 May 2011

    MORE than 200 British subscribers to an online news group which shared child pornography included a Penrith GP struck off earlier this year.

    Details of Operation Alpine, a crackdown on users of the athnanews.com site, were revealed on Saturday after those behind it appeared in court.

    Among them was Dr Ian Mitchell, 53, who worked as a GP at the Lakes Practice in Penrith. He admitted 19 counts of downloading obscene images in February last year.

    Mitchell, who was chairman of NHS Cumbria’s Professional Executive Committee and who enjoyed a seemingly idyllic life in the Lake District, had downloaded 642 images late at night while drinking alone in his study over a period of four years.

    He blamed his actions on stress brought on by his high-powered job and said he had a “morbid curiosity” in child pornography after discovering a patient was a paedophile.

  57. In the hope that kate mccann reads this: What also causes suspicion is that you want to be heard but you do not allow Dr Amaral to have the same privileges. Fortunately two court cases in Portugal against him do now recognise freedom of speech and his books will be allowed to be sold to all who want to read about the disappearance of your child. I intend to buy and read Gonçalo Amaral's books first before I support you, kate, because we have every right to hear both sides and decide for ourselves. That is democracy and we will defend our rights.

  58. Contradictions, contradictions...
    According to the D. Mail article (and Kate's book, I suppose), Kate slept away from Gerry because he left the bar and the group of friends abruptly and in a mood, claiming he was tired and leaving her behind. What happened to the "Najoua Chekaia version"? Didn't Kate fall out with Gerry because he was too nice to Miss C. and ignored her? And didn't Gerry say that Kate slept elsewhere because of his snorring? I think that other Tapas mentioned a quiz night in their statements, either on Tuesday or Wednesday, but the McCanns did not mention it at all. I suppose that Miss C. was not impressed by Gerry's "charm" and that made him leave with a chip on his shoulder, Kate was furious by her husband's behavior, maybe that's why they did not mention the quiz night, they just wanted to forget the whole thing.

  59. Some more to kate: you are responsible for what you create. Read the following if you will:
    "It must be kept constantly in front of our minds the fact that
    self-deception is the cruelest of all forms of deception. Because
    when we deceive ourselves we deceive all the activities inside of
    ourselves, all the words and all the thoughts and all the physical
    actions, self-deception employs all those faculties and those
    faculties go out into the world and cause endless other deceptions
    which then become a boomerang to bounce back and hurt us."

  61. "Kate recorda, igualmente, o ultimo interrogatorio que levaria o casal a ser constituido arguido.
    " Estavam 3 agentes da Judiciaria na sala. O joao carlos colocou-me a maioria das questoes, as quais respondi da forma mais pormenorizada possivel. De volta ao apartamento, a noite, o meu advogado, Carlos Pinto de Abreu, reiterou que o caso nao estava a correr bem. A Policia Judiciaria tinha uma grande quantidade de "evidencias" e era mais do que certo que eu ia ser considerada arguida logo de manha.""

    Grande revelacao. O advogado Pinto de Abreu disse que a policia TINHA UMA GRANDE QUANTIDADE DE EVIDENCIAS E ERA MAIS DO QUE CERTO QUE IA SER CONSTITUIDA ARGUIDA. O advogado nao disse que a policia tinha fabricado evidencias, nao disse que a tinha maltratado, nao disse que a policia estava a usar estrategias para forcar uma confissao. Afinal sempre ha evidencias contra a Kate e Pinto de Abreu sabe que elas existem. Kate acaba de dar essa informacao para todo o mundo. Ja estou a imaginar o sururu na Amazon a tentarem alterar o texto deste paragrafo para que nao fique registado no livro.
    Sera por saber que existem estas evidencias que Pinto de Abreu saltou fora do caso?

  63. A lot of inconsistencies in Kate's account in today's 'The Sun'. Also, she basically rubbished Martin Grimes' work methods and integrity. She wrote that Martin Grimes prompted the dogs and virtually goded or pushed them towards the Renault Scenic. Martin should be duly offended - particaularly after 200 or more successful cases - and should consider libel action.

  65. I'm sorry but I believe paedophilia is behind Madeleine's disappearance. I thought that, as soon as I read what Katherine Gaspar told the British police.

    The McCanns and the Paynes, must have been aware of the allegations Katherine Gaspar had made against David Payne and Gerry McCann. Yet they never denied the allegations or took legal action against Katherine Gaspar, or the European newspaper that printed the story. I found that rather strange and I could only assume Katherine Gaspar's allegations were true.


    I was sickened when Katherine Gaspar, said Gerry McCann laughed at David Payne's paedophiliac gestures about Madeleine. What father would laugh at someone making sexual gestures about his little girl? In my opinion, a father who indulges in this filth.

    This case gets sicker by the minute. The people who have the power to do something, are doing nothing. Why?

  67. So refreshing to get back to reading sane comments regarding this case. However, the Daily Mail is taking comments, I say this loosely as none of mine have been posted, and it is about 60/40 against the McCanns although some say they feel sorry for her but it is her own doing that caused the disappearance.

  71. Kate must surely be mentally unstable to write in such graphic detail, it is grosque that she makes money from Madeleine's memory, in todays Mail she states she phoned her friends in England in the middle of the night for them to get their friends and family out of bed and hold a prayer vigil whilst she and gerry went back to bed !!! Words fail me at their audacity what she is during must be illegal she is still a criminal suspect the case is not closed.
    This case urgently needs to be re-opened the mccanns are insulting everyone and nobody is doing anything about it.

  72. Hi Anonymous (67)I feel physically sick when I think of what Madeleine has gone through. I once heard Kate McCann describing the friendship she and her husband had with the Tapas group. "We were so into them" She said. I can only imagine what she meant when she said that.

    I also believe that she was bragging, when she made that statement. She knew that she and her husband were immune from prosecution, if anyone used her statement in their quest to bring them both to justice.

    As you say there are some very powerful people out there and it just so happens that the McCanns friends in high places, are very powerful people. Powerful enough to keep them out of jail.

  73. I think Paedophillia is involved in this because Gerry introduced it on the first night and they keep saying paedophiles have taken Maddie, even on the night she disappeared he was shouting down the phone that paedophiles were involved. Was this to cover what they had been doing to her in the event of Madeleine's body being found.
    What a sick group of smug friends they should all be charged for trying to pervert the course of justice.
    Everyday I see Madeleine's face looking out from some newspaper or other and Kate's posed grief stricken look, what a disgrace Kate and those involved in promoting this trashy news have become.

  76. Would you all agree that there is obviously some sort of Injunction in place that prevents any negative reporting of the McCanns - not sure if its a Super Injunction because I believe in those circumstances no reporting at all is allowed whether negative or positive - but there is some sort of gagging of the press and media.

    And if there is, surely its an absolute abomination for the procurers of an Injunction to go publishing a book on their version of events. Its flippin` well like a George Orwell thought control horror story.

  77. #67,
    didn't Kate also write in her "diary" that Madeleine was afraid of pain?! What a weird thing to say/write! Poor Madeleine was just 4 years old, and to all we know she was healthy (little childen who are sick often and subjected to medical treatments, shots, etc., know of pain anf fear it), so, what kind of horrible things could the little girl have endured in her short life to be so consciently afraid of pain? How and why was Madeleine familiar with pain???

  78. It would be foolish for the Portuguese authorities to respond through the media to Mrs. McCann's accusations. The PJ are a reputable police force; it shouldn't debase itself by explaining their actions to a mob of criminals. I'm sure the Portuguese authorities have more important matters to take care of.

    The case was at an impasse when it was archived primarily due to the reluctance of the English to relay crucial information to the Portuguese. I don't believe that the English authorities would now choose to cooperate with the Portuguese authorities if the case were re-opened. Why do I believe this? Well, one has to look no further than the fund the McCanns are running. The fund is within England's jurisdiction; a small amount of investigative work would reveal that it is fraudulent. So, why hasn't it been done?

    Once again, references to an injunction or super injunction. Do these injunctions force the media to disseminate lies?

    Mrs. McCann and her husband exhibit the behaviour common to a personality disorder know as malignant narcissism. People that have this affliction are sometimes referred to as "people of the lie." Curing these type of people is extremely difficult, that is if they even acknowledge that there is something wrong with them and thus agree to therapy.

    It could be that people in the British upper class have to continue to fulfill the needs of these sick individuals, because they are privy to some depraved lifestyle lived by certain affluent people.

  79. Agree with you Guerra.
    PJ should not react regarding Kate lies. Goncalo Amaral should not react too. The best response is 'being quite', waiting for the book to be released in Portugal. Will not surprise me if the book come out with another version different then what The Sun is serializing. Amazon must be working hard, changing the most controversial passages. If caught, Mitchell just have to say was paper mistakes or another rubbish excuse.
    The serialization before the book being out, was to check the terrain, see the reaction of the public. Was not good.

  80. Hi War (79) I would never expect the PJ to respond to the media, they are much too professional to stoop to those levels. I just don't understand why after 4yrs, they have allowed the McCanns to continually bad mouth them.

    The latest allegation, that Kate McCann has made against the PJ, is a very serious one. If she is telling lies, then I'm sure the PJ have the power to bring charges against her.

    I believe the McCanns and their powerful friends share the same depraved lifestyle. It is because they all share this depraved lifestyle, that the McCanns are not behind bars. The McCanns powerful friends know, that if the McCanns are charged with an offence, regarding Madeleine's disappearance, the McCanns will squeal like pigs. They can't let this happen.

    There must be someone out there who is as powerful as the McCanns friends, who has the ability to discover the reason why the McCanns are so protected. The McCanns are being treated in the UK, as if they are above the law.

    The McCanns aren't being treated, as if they are above the law in Portugal. If they were, they wouldn't have lost the two recent court cases, regarding Goncalo Amaral's book "The Truth of the Lie" Also the false accusation the McCanns lawyer made about Goncalo Amaral, would have stuck.

    Hopefully the PJ and Goncalo Amaral are working hard behind the scenes and the McCanns are in for a nasty shock....When they least expect it.

  81. Goncalo Amaral has spoken exclusively to www.mccannfiles.com. He has made a plea for Kate McCann to speak the truth. It is a very good article.

    I am comforted knowing that Dr Amaral, is keeping watch on the McCanns. I hope the PJ are doing the same.

  83. Kate shows us her violent side in her writing, too. I also expected more quality but since I'm not familiar with the sun newspaper this may be exactly their level. I just love to read and was hoping that kate will have style and character if nothing else but it is soooo disappointing so far. Kate must not consider herself an author. It is sad to see this family's reputation going to pots even more so with this book. Frankly I feel quite sorry for the first time, for kate as I'm wondering what else we will be reading as the book has 300 plus pages.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Anon. 64 That's interesting. If Kate is now saying that Martin Grimes cohersed the dogs, whereas before, McCanns said that the cadaver scent was due to rotting meat etc in the boot, so they've changed their story yet again. Whereas before, they said the dogs were wrong, now they seem to say the dogs may have been right but were pushed into finding the scent. This seems an extraordinary u-turn by Kate completely beyond credibility.

  85. Post 62 may I Google translate your post into English as it is so revealing.

    "Kate recalls also the last interrogation that would take the accused to be constituted.
    "They were three agents of the Judiciary in the room. João Carlos put me most of the questions, which I answered in as much detail as possible. Back at the apartment at night, my lawyer, Carlos Pinto de Abreu, reiterated that the case I was not going well. The Judiciary Police had a large amount of "evidence" and was more than sure I would be considered early in the morning raised. "

    Great revelation. The lawyer Pinto de Abreu said the police HAD A LARGE QUANTITY OF EVIDENCE AND WAS MORE THAN BE SURE IA made ​​defendants. The lawyer did not say that the police had fabricated evidence, said he had not been mistreated not say that the police were using strategies to force a confession. After all there's always evidence against Kate and Pinto de Abreu know that they exist. Kate has just given this information to the world. I'm already imagining the mussels in the Amazon to try to change the wording of this paragraph to not be recorded in the book.
    Sera to know that there is evidence that these Pinto de Abreu jumped off the case?"

  86. It becomes clearer why no other newspaper would have printed this serialised version of the 'book'. Kate must it continue or is it possible to withdraw and make some changes? It is like finding yourself in bad company. Be subtle, kate, refined. It is not easy to read your story, it is lacking...................well, what can one say.

  89. salsa @ no4: yes , that's what happens with a genuine best seller. I am not quite sure when this is going to dawn on some people, but this is the way mass market publishing works. It makes no difference to what the Mccanns get for each copy. The retailer can sell it for whatever they want & will reduce the price to whatever level still guarantees them a profit while maximising sales. This is why I can pre-order every Harry Potter book for half the RRP. I have tried explaining this many times now and have just come to the conclusion some people live in la-la land.

    ReplyDelete
  91. It occurs to me that rather than flaunting themselves to everyone with their in-your-face attitude & believing themselves to be invincible, perhaps they should wonder if indeed they will be allowed to drag everyone down with them. They simply won`t shut up, will they?
    Now important people can get things shut up & no-one would wonder at it.
    Have they really not considered that?

    I think they cannot do much about it. They are forced to keep silent by law, look at what happened to Mr. Amaral, he was suspended after talking off-the-record to a journalist, and later had to ask for early retirement in order to gain his right to speak freely about the case. Not ONE of his superiors spoke out in his defense, NO ONE gave him any support, not the PJ director, not the Attorney General, not the Justice Minister, whatever, they all stood silent, thet all rolled over and played dead to please "God knows who?"!
    Also, the case is not in the hands of the PJ anymore, and even when the investigation was active, it did not "belong" to the PJ alone, in Portugal the PJ has to work under the Ministério Público. The case is assigned to a public prosecutor from the MP and the PJ has to work under his/hers command. The case was not archived by the PJ, and it will not be reopened by the PJ, it is out of their hands, now the ball is on the MP's field, so to say.
    The MP, along with the directorship of the PJ could and should make some official statements about the disgraceful and unfair treatment our police has been subjected to, but I suppose there is no political interest to do so, it's not convenient( our justice system is riddled with politics and veilled interests, I'm afraid).
    I believe that many PJ officers are deeply hurt in their professional pride and itching to set the record straight, but they just cannot afford to, not if they want to keep their jobs...

  96. Very interesting posts to be read at the excellent McCann Files (as always), the following is from the Scotsman newspaper:

    http://news.scotsman.com/uk/I-looked-in-bin-and.6765497.jp?articlepage=1

    "She said that when she and her husband returned to the apartment the previous evening a window had been opened from the outside and blinds were fluttering in the wind."

    She and her husband??? Is she saying they BOTH returned at the same time and found the window opened??? And the blinds were fluttering??? That's new to me! I would vey much like to know how such solid, rigid metal blinds, which are secured on the sides inside a rail, could be "fluttering in the wind"! Nothing surprises me anymore...not even a pig flying!

    ReplyDelete
  97. I've been reading the posts in McCann Files and this one made me want to punch my computer screen:

    "Confess and get 'only two years', police urged Kate McCann: But she kept strong with four-letter chant Daily Mail":

    "Kate McCann was speechless with fury when police offered her a 'lenient' jail term if she confessed to disposing of Madeleine's body."

    "Her Portuguese lawyer even tried to sweeten the pill by suggesting that while she stayed in jail, her husband Gerry could go back to work."

    "The plea-bargain offer was put to the McCanns by their lawyer, Carlos Pinto de Abreu. He told them Mrs McCann could get 'only two years' if she admitted Madeleine had died in an accident in the apartment, and confessed to hiding and later disposing of her body."

    WHAT???

    I wonder what Mr. Pinto de Abreu has to say about this!
    Didn't he deny it, and also Mitchell, later on? Didn't they admitt there never was a plea bargain offered? It never could be, because as far as I know, there is no such thing as plea-bargains in portuguese law!
    This is very serious for Mr. P. de Abreu, how could he have participated in an illegal act like this? He would be putting his career at risk, if true he might face disbarment!

    ReplyDelete
  98. The last chap of Kate in The Sun, was about her not having mind to make love with Gerry. Who cares? What is the contribution of that for the truth? How that information help them to search their girl? That is her private life and must be kept where belongs to- inside her marriage, inside her home, inside their life.
    We all remember how struggled she was with her life, travelling around Europe, going to the Vatican, jogging, going to Fatima, having friends and relatives visiting them all the time. She really look very depressed, very worried.
    Only the first chap came out and the book look already so disgusting. She is walking between lies and a sexual disturbance. First with words she use to describe the feelings about her daughter, now to highlight an issue which add nothing to Madeleine search. The book is not an account of the truth, like she said last week. The book is an account of lies used by her to play a victim roll and accuse PJ. I'm very surprised that was not PJ who abducted your daughter, Kate. Should we wait few chaps more until some insinuations come out like the one made by your mother about PJ planting evidences? You cannot go more low....

    The first thing to do after reopenning the case, is the reconstruction, said Goncalo Amaral.

    We want all them back in the OC to revive the last hours of Madeleine. Are you ready Kate, instead of wasting time with your sexual problems?

  101. The PJ is a real police force not toytown pensoner cops like the Mcs employ. They will remain quiet as long as they need to, building evidence of lies. The same with Goncarlo Amaral, his interview on McCann files is educated, balanced and not biased, he would not lower himself to respond in a crap newspaper. Silence is golden.
    If kate really wrote this book then I am disgusted that this supposed grieving mother writes such a lot of useless fluffy words, to put it in real context Bulls--t. How can you descried your daughter being defiled by a paedo as he touched her perfect body. Sensationalism Kate to keep the cash tills ringing. you are sick and need help. I see Gerry is still accompanying you on your publicity and tv interviews, hes still afraid someone may push the wrong button.
    There are things going on in the background you can be sure of that.
    Your sensational trash is now selling at 9GBP less than half price and it hasnt been launched yet. the written word can be used as evidence.

    So Kate claims they left 'heads held high' - what planet does she live on! I remember it well, we all saw it as them running away from justice - and Smith recognised Gerry as he came down the plan steps carrying a child just as he had carried a child on May 3rd 2007.

    Madeleine McCann’s Parents: The Real Royal Couple?

    ReplyDelete
  107. In yesterday's Sun Newspaper Kate dismissed the credibility of the dog's alerting due to the fact that Mr Grimes, the dog's handler kept urging the dog towards the hire car and alludes that Mr Grimes knew their rented Renault Scenic by saying, "It was hard to miss: the windows were plastered with pictures of Madeleine.In medicine we would call this a unblind study, one that is susceptible to bias."
    A close look at the actual footage of this search by the dog on the documentary, clearly shows the car completely free of posters or pictures. The whole article in yesterdays serialisation highlights some very interesting terms where kate's feelings are concerned. She repeatedly speaks of feeling distant, Contempt, Relaxed, invinciple. I don't think I need to draw pictures here or join the dots. These conscious or unconscious words speak for themselves.

  108. Just a thought .

    I wonder if the reason behind the British imperialistic protection of the child neglectors may have something to do with destroying Portugal's economy ? The tourist industry is suffing damage . Or so we are led to believe . Portugal are now under compliments to Europe and are asking for a bale out . What in Gods name was the Lisbon Treaty all about , when we consider the McCanns were home safe and dry shortly after the signing .

    Is this a case of the British Imperialistic fist hammering decency and truth into the ground , in favour of the McCanns lies e.g. are they the puppets being used to take Portugal's economy into the gutter at the cost of a child who is disregarded and disposed simply because hard economic policy comes before the loss of a child .

    As mentioned above (just a thought ) Could British economics be the cardinal reason why the McCanns are given special treatment by British imperialism and the gag that is now firmly in place throughout the British media .

  112. @ anon. 42 and 77.

    I think the way The Observer swiped so many of the more constructive, informative posts on that thread is really sinister. I too thought Charles Poole's contribution was superb and thanked him for it at the time.

    I too had one deleted which had way over a hundred hits. I responded to Barbara Ellen's claims that Kate was justified in writing her book in order to raise more money for the search by questioning what had happened to all the money given so far. I pointed out that a lot of money had been spent on some dubious private detectives, expensive lawyers, law suits and damages to Amaral. I was merely stating facts, as reasonably as I could, and cannot for the life of me see why my post later disappeared. A newspaper cannot be guilty of libel if it publishes facts, but clearly I touched some sort of nerve. Many posts that were hysterical, abusive, and downright silly, that could put those sceptical about the McCanns in a bad light, were left there, but those that tried to give readers some information and were reasonaby argued quickly disappeared, and this was was the Observer/Guardian, supposedly a good, investigative, crusading paper.

    This whole business is beginning to make me feel quite sick.

  113. Exactely 95,

    And Kate is completly stupid on her book, shuting her own feet when she made accusations against PJ. PJ was just doing what was decided at top level by more then one Prosecutor.
    From the top level, at the time, there is interviews with President of Republic, the Prime Minister, The minister of justice and The Attorney general saying that the police was doing everything that could be done to loccate and rescue the girl in a safe manner. Latter a big number came out showing that the search and the investigation was the most expensive Portugal ever had ( I believe one of the most expensive in the World). She deserves to be called to Portugal to show evidences of all her lies, the one(s) she delivered during the last 4 years and the one(s) she is delivering now.

  114. 108,

    Unfortunnnnnnnately for Kate there is videos about the dogs search. We all can see, the dogs were not forced by anybody to search any special place. They checked many flats, including Murat Villa, many cars and many clothes. They just pick the scent of death and blood on Mccann's stuff and what wonders me is that from Kate, the scent was picked on her black and white squares trousers. This are the trousers she is wearing when she make the first TV appeal (close to May 3) and she appears with them some more days after on the first weeks after the disappearence. When confronted with what the dogs found on her clothes she gave that extraordinary explanation- she had been in contact with 6 cadavers on the week before going on holidays. Really? And she did no wash them during all that time?
    For a GP who works in part-time 2 half days a week, in a clinic (not an hospital), is really extraordinary the contact with 6 cadavers. Was there a big disaster in UK at the end of April?
    I don't believe she was even working when she went to PDL because the Maternnity leave in UK is 2 years or more, then she must be under Maternnity leave for the twins. That lady really live out of reality and what she write on her book, at least what is being serialised, proves it.

  115. Goncalo Amaral is a very clever and intelligent person. By choosing Mccannfiles to give an interview, he prove it. He choose a British site and gave a very balanced interview, contrary to the insultuous lies on Kate book.
    Correio da Manha had an article about Kate book and at the end of the article they said they contacted GA but he refused to make any comment. Clever, intelligent. He knows anything he could say on the News, even if are in Portugal, nex hours will be manipulated and changed to be published on british tabloides. Wonder if The Sun will pick-up the interview from mccannfiles after the shameful note sent to Nigel Moore regarding the copyrights of Kate lies. Antonnela 'Lie'zzary must be bitting her nails, screaming in front of her laptop because at that time she cannot insult GA or she will be showing that she also surfs on the Net to get accurate information.
