'The Tapas Seven' - An Apology?!?!?


Thursday October 16,2008

In articles published between July and December last year we suggested that the holiday companions of Kate and Gerry McCann might have covered up the true facts concerning Madeleine McCann’s disappearance and/or misled the authorities investigating her disappearance.

We also reported speculation that one member of the group, Dr Russell O’Brien, was suspected of involvement with Madeleine’s abduction.

We now accept that these suggestions should never have been made and were completely untrue.

We apologise to Jane Tanner, Russell O’Brien, Fiona Payne, David Payne, Matthew Oldfield, Rachael Oldfield and Diane Webster to whom we have agreed to pay substantial damages which they will be donating to the Find Madeleine Fund.

  1. What a pity the press can't sue the Tapas7 for their 'unhelpful' attitude. Those who refused to return to PT to take part in a re-enactment get rewarded with blood money. By taking part in this latest McCann fiasco, they'll go down in public memory as taking blood money EVEN if the payout goes straight into the limited company.

    What a pity the PJ can't sue them for being unhelpful too, especially the numerous guises of the 'abductor' made by Tanner. Loathsome group of people, who I hope, will never be able to hold their head up high, knowing they have done all they can to assist.
