No Respect

Months after Madeleine went missing, another child, Mari Luz Cortés, went missing, though in very different circumstances [in a different Country as matter of fact]. Sadly she has since been found dead. The McCanns printed posters of Madeleine together with Mari Luz - without gaining the parents’ prior permission. Her parents were very upset, and complained. 

Clarence Mitchell’s outrage with the Cortés family:

“It is shameful that Mari Luz’s father has brought himself to complain,” was the reaction of Clarence Mitchell, the spokesman for the McCann couple, in response to the request from Juan Jose Cortés that the posters with the photo of his daughter beside Madeleine should not be distributed.

The [ab]use of Mari Luz Cortés Family Tragedy

  1. I understand the couple Cortés.
    They did not want to get involved with irresponsible criminal parents.
    I would not have done it either.
    They are poor but they still have their dignity.
    How dare the McCanns to print posters with Mari Luz, without asking permission.They think they can use everybody. If it had been the other way around, the McCanns would have sued the couple Cortés.

    #money,money, money,#
    must be funny#
    in a rich man's world#

    Sometimes I think their money will cost them the truth.
    A family member, a friend will get jealous of their richness and will tell what they know.

    Jealousie is sometimes very much welcome in some cases.
    Let's wait.

  2. I know the Cortes personally and I can tell you one thing is that they were horrified when they were told what the mccLiars wanted to do.
    Thanks to a very prompt undertaking,the mccLiars were stoped in the act and threatened to be taken to court.
    This pair of lunatics believe they own the world and its people.
    Their new "campaign" is the catalyst to their DEFINITIVE FALL.
    Some people are working at it.
    Wait and SEE

  3. The poster with Mari Luz Cortés & Madeleine together was one of the most crass ideas they have come up with.

    A blatant way of saying children go missing often in Portugal.

    Divert and distract.

    They have severely underestimated the public's intelligence.

    We will never forget... we will never let them forget

    McCann's - your chickens are coming home to roost

  4. I remember reading at the time that the McCanns wanted Mari Luz's parents to pay for having her photo alongside that of Madeleine, even though they went ahead and printed the poster without asking them. I think the sum of 4,000 euros or Pounds was mentioned. However, I accept that this may have been newspaper speculation and may not be factual. I was surprised at the time, however, at the way they jumped on the bandwagon of any missing child, even if the child disappeared in completely different circumstances to Madeleine and in a different place, nowhere near Praia da Luz. I live in southern Spain and I recently saw an old poster of Madeleine and Yéremi Vargas, a little boy who went missing from Gran Canaria. Don't know whether his parents gave permission for him to appear on the poster, or whether they were asked for any money....

  5. Never ending arrogance. Shame on you mccanns and mitchell. I despice you all.

    "Clarence Mitchell’s outrage with the Cortés family"

    HOW DEAR HE !!!

  6. Mari Luz, was dead apparently just a few days later after disappearing from the street near her family house.

    Let's assume she wasn't dead at the time the McCanns hijacked Mari Luz image and her family, to serve their own purpose in the McCann's machiavelic media campaign.

    The world wide dissemination of Mari Luz picture along Madeleine's would probably represent Mari Luz death sentence - this according to experts.

    The McCann team (Media Machine)abuse of this little girl's tragedy is just one example of the selfish, manipulative, irresponsible attitude of the McCann couple and of Clarence Mitchell.

    Again they, the McCanns and subsequently the manipulated and obliging British media, attempted to pervert the course of justice, that is, the investigation done by the Spanish authorities to Mari Luz Cortés disappearance.

    It could have been Mari Luz death sentence. Similarly, if we assume Madeleine's abduction as an hypothesis it could have been Madeleine's death sentence as well - at the hands of her own parents.
