The risks of engaging PI’s without appropriate Due Diligence

Post by Get'emGonçalo on 05.10.10 20:00

A letter from the McCann Foundation to the Prime Minister exposes the risks of engaging PI’s without appropriate Due Diligence!



The Madeleine Foundation’s letter to the Prime Minister


"To say that this case is controversial would be a serious understatement. To say that Madeleine McCann is the best-known missing girl in the world would be to state the obvious. A number of flat contradictions in the various witness statements given to the Portuguese Police by the McCanns and their ‘Tapas 9’ friends remain to be explained. To state that the disappearance of Madeleine McCann is ‘a complete mystery’ would be to repeat the actual words used in March this year by the McCanns’ principal public relations officer during the past three years, the man who until Madeleine disappeared was the Head of the government’s 40-strong Media Monitoring Unit, and the person you appointed as second-in-command to your Communications Director, Andy Coulson, in the run-up to the General Election – Clarence Mitchell." See the full article here
A sorry Saga of dishonest or incompetent Investigators having been engaged!


As a practicing UK PI, I am concerned that the McCann’s engaged various Investigators without having conducted appropriate Due Diligence as to experience, references and licensing!

Given that the Government are considering “dumping” the Quango - Security Industry Authority as the present time, this very sad saga surely adds fuel to the need to regulate the Private Investigation Sector. The fact that since the advent of the Private Security Industry Act in 2001, the SIA had for almost 10 years failed to at the very least issue a license to PI’s in the UK is at best grossly incompetent, at worst a dereliction of the objectives of the Act.
On behalf of WAPI, I can but tend our dismay and sympathy at the manner in which the McCann’s have suffered as a result of incompetent and dishonest Private Investigators, and assure that the vast majority of PI’s are honest, genuine and provide a competent and efficient service to their clients

As a PI, he must surely know no one, absolutely no one , would pay that kind of mega buck without conducting due diligence on backgrounds of PIs before hire. Especially by a collective bunch of professionals and people of some social standings, logistically we can safely deduce that was done, so questions have to be asked how did they manage to choose PIs who are incompetent and dishonest, not once, not twice, but repeatedly?

Not much of a PI, It seems he hasn't even read the full MF article...if he had I doubt he would be quoting it in his article. I suspect the numpty is touting for the McCanns busiiness.

Here's a comment that's been placed in the 'Comments' section under this article:

As a retired Police Officer I have been very worried by the way in which monies donated by the public have apparently been squandered by the Trustees of this Fund [Find Madeleine Fund] on highly questionable PIs, some of them complete unknowns. I fear that when all the facts are known it may turn out to be more than a mere lack of ‘due diligence’ though I hope I am wrong, and that simple crass incompetence is the final verdict.

The reverse might be true. Competence in securing only those willing to work to the mccanns agenda!
