MEPs will back Madeline McCann-inspired emergency cooperation measures for missing children between EU states

McCann inspired written declaration on emergency cooperation in recovering missing children to be formally adopted
28-08-2008 - 09:51

The written declaration on emergency cooperation in recovering missing children, inspired by the disappearance of Madeline McCann on 3 May 2007, will be formally adopted in plenary with 418 MEP signatures . More than half of the total 785 MEPs need to sign a written declaration for it to become the official position of the European Parliament.


The written declaration brought forward by Edward MCMILLAN-SCOTT (EPP-ED, UK), Roberta ANGELILLI (UEN, IT), Glenys KINNOCK (PES, UK), Evelyne GEBHARDT (PES, DE) and Diana WALLIS (ALDE, UK) calls on Member States to introduce a missing child alert system, the activation of which would require the immediate forwarding to the relevant news media, border authorities and customs and law enforcement agencies of details of:

– the missing child, with a photograph if available
– information relevant to the disappearance and/or the suspected abductor(s)
– a telephone number to call with information (116 000 where operational).

The declaration calls on the Member States to reach cooperation agreements with all bordering states to ensure the capacity to raise an alert rapidly across any relevant territories.

The declaration calls for the development of a common organisation to provide assistance and training to national bodies and points out that there is no Europe-wide alert system for child disappearances nor any local or national systems throughout much of the European Union.

The declaration, together with the names of the signatories, is now forwarded to the Commission and the Council.

  1. There was no abduction; the child died in their apartment but that didn't stop politicians giving them credit for this initiative. This is just another step in trying to rehabilitate the couple in the public eye. I believe they came up with this idea from the American John Walsh, whose son was abducted and murdered. John Walsh was a strong proponent of Amber alert in the States. In September of last year, he indicated that he had been in contact with the couple. He also strongly believed in the couple's innocence, though toward the end of this case he became silent on the matter.
    I've always wondered why they would
    specifically claim that the supposed abduction had to have been by a paedophile, maybe it's because they are acquainted with such people. The more time goes by the more I am convinced that archiving the case was the right thing to do. It was a no win situation, the police weren't allowed to access basic information on the suspects, and influential people in positions of authority protected the couple and their friends.
    É noticias como estas que fazem-me não ter mais vontade de ler matéria sobre este assunto.

  4. guerra,

    I agree ... serves to confirm the level of corrupt MEP's - SITTs (snouts in the trough).

    The McCanns are parasites, hitching a ride on the backs of genuine cases.

    The effectiveness of policing in EU countries is proven by their success rates in cases of missing children, including Madeleine.

    The forensic results broadcast last September on police orders are further confirmed in authoritative police documentation in the public arena.

    Irrespective of Government corruption (results withheld from police investigators), overwhelming evidence shows Madeleine died in her parents' apartment on or around 3 May and her body removed.

    The mother of Sarah Payne, a genuine case of abduction/death by a paedophile, did her utmost to protect others from the same fate.
    She tried and filed to legally secure access to registered offenders. Police advised against it for legitimate reasons, the threat of vigilante reprisals.

    In Madeleine's case, those who support the police are subjected to vigilante reprisals by McCanns mercenary agents - fronted by Mitchell.

  5. guerra,

    The author of Vanished took the trouble of interviewing many paedophiles. They confirmed that a child of Madeleine's age would be of 'no use' to their sick pursuits. Also, paedophiles do not hang around places like Luz, they favour large resorts nd also use Childrens Homes.

    People agree that from Madeleine's perspective, far better she died swiftly at the hand of a parent.

    The word 'paedophile' is used to exonerate the guilty and malign the innocent. Cold, calculated, vile PR campaign. Above all else it confirms the criminal mentality involved. Abhorrent to the law abiding.

  6. Was this really McCann-inspired, or was it someone else's idea?
