How Foreign Newspapers Portrayed the Disappearance of Madeleine

Post by sallypelt on Sun 30 Nov - 21:59

There has been much written about the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, in foreign newspapers and blogs in other languages,  over the past 7 years. We know most, if not all, that's been written in the Portuguese newspapers, but not so much about what's been written in other newspapers or blogs. So, I think it's beneficial to have a thread entirely dedicated to translations about the case on a single thread. I suggest this thread will be used solely for this purpose. If anyone feels there is an interesting transcript, can they take it to another thread to discuss?

Here is a starter. I will post more in the coming days/weeks.


Translated from French to English.

SOS Madeleine McCann Never before in history, so many people became interested in the fate of a little girl.

Here is the virtual image of Maddie , 8,
 with the appearance that the child could have if she was still alive. The initiative, just days before the fifth anniversary of the death of the child, is part of the British tabloid " Sunday Express ", which , as he had done in the past wrongly attributes the origin of the image of FBI experts in the United States . This is not the first time that tabloid publishes virtual images of Maddie , attributing their origin related to so-called experts or belonging to the North American organization. Manipulation was confirmed to us by Special Agent Ross Rice, FBI in Chicago. " The virtual aging Madeleine McCann was directed by Jovey Mae Hayes, not by the FBI, " the agent wrote in April 2009 denying any relationship between the artist and the organization. In the picture published on Sunday , Maddie , who would now eight, has more defined physical characteristics , a longer nose, slightly thick lips

According to the tabloid , citing "experts" unidentified Maddie would now have a closer look of adolescence, with a stronger resemblance to her mother, Kate McCann. The child would now have eyes and hair with a darker tone. The disclosure of this new virtual image - the fourth - also coincides with the new version of promotional campaign " Madeleine" , the book by Kate McCann (more details here). Remember, Madeleine McCann disappeared May 3, 2007 in Praia da Luz , southern Portugal. According to her parents, Kate and Gerry McCann 's disappearance would have occurred inside the room or the child was sleeping with his brother and sister.

19/10/2010   Portugal: Court overturns injunction Maddie 's parents

The Court of Appeal overturned Tuesday the injunction filed by the parents of Madeleine McCann against the book written by the former coordinator of the Judicial Police (PJ) Portuguese Gonçalo Amaral .
The decision to ban the sale of the book and the video was delivered on January 14 by Cunha Rodrigues Judge of the Civil Court of Lisbon, after a first provisional decision in September of 2009. The order was in response to an application filed by lawyer Isabel Duarte behalf of the five members of the McCann clan, it includes the missing Maddie .  The decision prohibited the marketing of the book " Maddie : The Forbidden investigation" - in Portuguese " Maddie : A Verdade da Mentira " - and the disclosure of a documentary with the same title that was originally broadcast by the ITV television channel and marketed with the daily Correio da Manhã .

According to a close by Gonçalo Amaral , former coordinator, who defends the thesis of the involvement of Kate and Gerry McCann in the disappearance of their daughter in May 2007, received the news " with satisfaction and relief that justice has been done. "  In France, the news was also welcomed by officials of a television channel that had previously purchased the documentary broadcast rights .  This morning, the court accepted the appeal by the lawyer Antonio Cabrita and ordered the immediate replacement of the book in the usual outlets .  The court decision also recognizes the right to speak of the former investigator who was previously forbidden to give interviews both in Portugal

and abroad.

Former Coordinator - police chief gets the right to speak  Gonçalo Amaral received the news with satisfaction considering that decision to the Court of Appeal came to " strengthen the Portuguese democracy " stressing that his book " was an exercise of citizenship, freedom of expression and that the ban was unconstitutional ."  The former chief - coordinator Portuguese PJ admits to being quieter now to deal with two other trials it is subjected by Kate and Gerry McCann.

times in the past , brought an action in the civil accusing the former policeman of defamation and asking this time 1.2 million euros compensation . In a second case, Gonçalo Amaral is accused by counsel for the couple to have violated the secrecy of justice.  " This decision means that at the moment Gonçalo Amaral Dr is free to decide about all aspects of the case McCann. Means that the Court of Appeal considered that Lisbon is not, and there never was , in the book and in the video no offense to the good name of the McCann couple and found that Dr. Gonçalo Amaral was merely exercising a legitimate right , reinforced over more than twenty six years of criminal investigation experience aid the lawyer António Cabrita representing the former coordinator head of the judicial police.
 As a reminder, the book Maddie : Survey prohibited supports the thesis that Madeleine McCann died inside the holiday apartment occupied by his family in the south of Portugal in May 2007, and his parents concealed.
 The decision to ban the sale of the book and the video was delivered on January 14 by Cunha Rodrigues Judge of the Civil Court of Lisbon, after a first provisional decision of September 2009

The McCanns have voluntarily limited their right to privacy  Today , the judges dismissed the injunction saying that " the content of the book did not violate any of the human rights" of McCann.  "The exercise of his writing and publication is contained in the constitutional rights guaranteed to all by the European Convention on Human Rights and the Constitution of the Republic of Portugal ( on freedom of expression and information and freedom of the press and the media) , " said the judgment of judges Francisco Bruto da Costa, Mando Arelo Catarina and António Valente .  About Gonçalo Amaral accusations that had damaged the reputation of the couple and violated privacy of McCann, the judges concluded that it is the couple themselves who " opened the door " so that others can speak about the disappearance of Maddie

" In that respect the privacy of applicants ( McCann ) , it is they themselves who have multiplied in interviews and media interventions , providing information that otherwise would hardly disclosed ." It is they who " voluntarily agreed to limit their right to privacy ," written off.

Now , through a clever campaign , his parents are preparing to launch the new version of a book that brought nothing to the investigation. - Nada ! Five years and a few million later, two teams "Cold Case" working on the mystery without making any solution ... That explains it

Suspected of killing and hide Maddie

Kate and Gerry are formally suspected of death and concealment of Madeleine's corpse.. The blood found in the car of the couple, which was only rented 25 days after the girl disappeared, did change the whole scenario. The conviction of the Judicial Police is now that it was the parents who killed the child, hid the body and then simulated the abduction

Gerry and Kate deny it and consider the allegations "absurd." . But they can not counter the cadence of evidence, though circumstantial, that the police have gathered in recent weeks.. Everything points to the death of the child in the apartment and to the fact that the corpse was successively changed location. What can explain the existence of blood Maddie in the car, which could have been obtained by contamination, for example a piece of clothing that dressed girl at the time of death.
. However, without the body is found, the authorities hardly advance to other coercive measures. . They want to avoid repeating the Joana case and the rain of criticism and even suspicions that then arose. The fact that they are two British citizens also leads the Judicial Police to take attitudes of some restraint.The steps are preceded by all care so as not to hurt "international sensitivities".

Sky News e só depois para a polícia. On the night of May 3 Kate called first for British television Sky News and then the police. . In addition, the notice is the disappearance of their daughter, only three years, Kate will have closed the apartment door and returned to the restaurant where he was the group of friends.  Let the little ones alone again and have gone to the British say that her daughter disappeared.

The second is another woman also septuagenarian who says he witnessed conduct by Kate that raised suspicions about his performance.
The CM knows that Russell O'Brian's testimony also raised serious doubts researchers Judiciary. The English physician friend of the McCanns guarantees have gone to the nursery at 20:00, but then said to have not entered, only bothered to listen if there was noise in the apartment. The version is not considered credible, believing the police that the witness is not telling the whole truth.
The presence of sniffer dogs English was decisive for the volte-face in the investigation.

The vehicle used by the McCanns found what is presumed to be a bloodstain. . Analyzed in Birghiman, tests have revealed the case-identical DNA to Maddie.
 Dogs detect cadaver odor in Kate's clothes. The signal was given when approached a pair of jeans and a t-shirt used by the child's mother. The same trace was detected on teddy.
