Silly Season Humour: The Tapas 9 Timeline Redux
For those who have not yet grasped the complexity of the Tapas 9 Timeline and the amount of road covered in the ceaseless effort to keep their children safe Impartial has produced a condensed reconstruction of May 3, 2007: The Tapas 9 Timeline Redux
The Tapas 9 or simply Tapas, is the alias given by the media to the G9 - the official name given by the Portuguese and English authorities joint investigation codenamed Operation Task to a group consisted of nine British adults who dined in the Tapas Bar restaurant, at the Ocean Club Tourist Resort in Praia da Luz (Portugal) during their joint holidays from April 28, 2007 whilst leaving their children alone in the rented apartments. According to their statements the children were allegedly supervised in turns with uncertain time intervals [from 15 minutes to 20 or 30 minutes], until the evening of May 3, 2007 - when Madeleine McCann, aged 3, mysteriously "disappeared", allegedly from apartment 5A's bedroom, the one she shared with her 2-year-old siblings Sean and Amelie (twins). The tourist resort provided a free baby sitting service - it was never requested by the group.
The Tapas sworn official statements of May 4 and May 10 2007, April 2008, filled with incongruencies of various kinds, which often contradict their public media statements, can be found in this blog by following the index links, at the Maddie Case Files Forum, at the McCann Files or at Pamalam's aka Gerry McCann's Blog.
