Various other files report the investigations done by the Maritime Police in conjunction with the Judiciary Police, Coastguard, experts and other reconnaissance teams in the Process, one example of those reports is also translated bellow.

Other files mentioned in this reports like the «list of process crimes registered» at the Command of the Portimão's Marina or the check-ins and outs of the vessels in transit in the Algarve region for the month of May 2007 are not available in the Process distributed to the media by the Public Ministry.

One final consideration I would like to make is how did the British media passed from reporting a bayliner Swedish Yacht of 40ft [12 meters] that left Portimão's Marina on the 4th of May 2007, which was investigated and is on the Process files, to a Sunseeker Vessel, named "Will Power" of Australian Flag, of 105ft [32 meters] just because this vessel was allegedly harboured at Barcelona's Port Olympic Marina a few hours before an allegedly drunken anonymous British man saw allegedly an agitated "Victoria Beckham" look alike? - All alleged by Clarence Mitchell and Dave Edgar without any evidences of the above allegations being presented at the latest McCann Spin Farce Conference. You couldn't make this one up!!

Example of one of the Maritime Police Investigations

Ministry of National Defense
Maritime National Authority
Local Command of the Maritime Police of Portimão

Your Excellency, Mister
Commander of the Maritime Police of Lagos

I’m here to inform Your Excellency that, at this date, at 16:30 hours, when I was on search service, accompanied by the sub-chief Dioniz, at the area of jurisdiction of this command, namely at the beaches of Zavial and Ingrina, were done several investigations with the objective of finding the disappeared Madeleine Beth McCann, thus I questioned various users of the referred beaches: Tania F., Claudine M., Hanny de W., Bernhard de W., Francis M., Rebecca T., Steven W., George W and Christine W., having the above referred that they knew about the disappearance of the same and that were sensibilized to the fact, however to the date, they had no indications that could lead to the discovery of her whereabouts.

More, I inform, upon arrival at the concessionaire of the Beach of Zavial – “Ernesto J.M.”, with the phone contacts: xxx and xxx; the same relatively to the matter in question, stated that he knew Madeleine’s parents, as clients of his restaurant and that he remembers having seen them for the last time in his establishment in the month of April (Easter Holidays), with their three sons [sic. plural in Portuguese]; since that date, for the reason that he works in the kitchen, he does not remember having seen them at the restaurant/beach.

With respect to what has been exposed, it’s considered relevant to refer that the Zavial Beach is frequently visited by nudists, which consequently attracts some voyeurs.

Facts that I bring to the knowledge of Your Excellency, for the purposes considered convenient.

  1. Whole Portugal must be extremely happy that the process is shelved.
    The PJ can't think of investigating every tin, every garbage, every underwear, pointed and requested by the Mccanns, in order to delay and to disturb everything.The Marine is also resting in peace.

    I'm sure they continue investigating this case, in peace and according to their own rules.

    My father was a public prosecuter and I remember investigations being shelved, while the police were continuing the investigations in silence.
    Suddenly they had enough evidences to reopen the case again.
    I remember a very complicated assassination among high placed married lesbians and homosexuals, who wanted to hide their true sexual nature.
    The process was shelved for some time and finally the police came up with the answers and the murderer confessed the crime and was convicted.

    Joana, is it true that Pinto de Abreu and Rogério Alves are no longer Mccanns'lawyers?
    Who could tell me?

  2. Interesting that the Mccanns documentary in Portugal were made during the Easter week-end.
    On Easter Sunday Gerald went to the Luz church.
    Easter, the most important Christian happening,guarantees us a life after death, Jesus'resuscitation and ours.

    I think there is a connection among Easter, Jesus'resuscitation,our resuscitation, the Luz church and Madeleine's body.

    Why did the McCanns chose exactly that week-end to film in Algarve?
    Out of 52 week -ends per year?

    Was she or is she still buried in that church?

    That is why they had the key?

    When the dogs came to Algarve, they hid the corpse somewhere else ("Huelva")and they brought it back after some time and before they were made arguidos?

  3. Right!
    I heard there are a significant specialized police analyzing the crime scene again. If fact, a body does not disappear totally: it's a biological impossibility. At least something stays behind: ADN, fibras, new prints, framed friends... A big judgement is coming but I may be wrong... However, if I were a McCann member I'd start having sleeping problems again.

  4. If the get sleeping problems, they can take Calpol.
    It helps.
    But chloroform helps better.

  5. Alex, how come you heard about new investigations if the PJ keep secret about everything?

  6. É mais que óbvio que todas as pistas que surgem na pseudo-investigação dos mccann ou são pura invenção daquelas cabeças distorcidas ou já foram devidamente (impressionante o trabalho das autoridades portuguesas!) investigadas e descartadas por não possuirem relevância para o caso em questão.
    A forma como este casal e a equipa que com eles "trabalha" mente, manipula e distorce factos a seu bel-prazer é chocante!Que seres são estes???

  7. Could I suggest that one fact that really sticks out to me after reading these letters from the process files is that Praia Zavial in Vila do Bispo looks like a rather peculiar choice of beach for the McCanns. If it is confirmed that they were going to this beach what reason could there be? The beach is over 10 KM away from Praia da Luz (and there are plenty other beaches closer to PDL for them to use). By their own admission they did not have access to a car during their holidays, so how and why exactly did they travel 10 KM to go to Zavial when they had other closer alternatives? Anyone can answer this?
