I thought the case had been reviewed , and the recommendation was a thorough re investigation ? .... Anyway the British Police should review all cases on missing persons and there is a proceedural set time frame in which this should have been done

    Comments: I think what we should investigate is why a springer spaniel trained to detect places where human corpses have lain found the scent of a corpse in the McCanns' apartment living room, main bedroom, veranda and garden, in two places in the McCanns' hired car, on two of Dr Kate McCann's clothes, on one of the children's T-shirts, and on Cuddle Cat. Was it the corpse of Madeleine McCann I wonder?

In different circumstances the re-opening of the case would have been preferable. Hopefully after the Independant Review?
  14. 48 Name: Nathalie Cabana on Nov 2, 2010
    Comments: I think the investigation should be reopenned a.s.a.p. The fact that the portuguese police has ignore most of the leads maybe leading to Madeleine is an outrage. It is well known that portuguese police is corrupted and I believe that the portuguese authorities don,t want Madeleine to be found for the simple reason that her abductors are high rank personalities in Portugual and probably linked to the Casa Pia case. The investigation of Madeleine's abduction should be reopened because an innocent child has paid the price of incompetence and also because her parents have been vivified for nothing. Yes, they made a huge mistake by letting the kids all also while they were sleeping but they have paid the biggest price of all. They've lost a precious child they longed to have for 5 years and who they loved so dealy. Please accept a new review to the case. Madeleine deserves it and her parents deserve it too, Shawn and Amelie deserve to know what happened to their big sister too.

I have signed it a few minutes ago and confirm for the record that this is my entry and no other post in my name is from me:


Comments: It would be jolly helpful if you could tell us which of the 16 artists' sketches so far, 14 men and 2 women, whether 'suspects', 'persons of interest' or 'persons we wish to eliminate from our enquiries', we are really supposed to be looking for. Personally, I think 'pock-marked face' man looks highly suspicious, have you traced him yet? In the meantime, sign the REAL Madeleine McCann petition, the one on The Madeleine Foundation website calling for a FULL PUBLIC ENQUIRY into the whole affair: www.madeleinefoundation.org.uk



If this is a genuine Team McCann petition, is the Fund paying for all the time taken to delete all the comments?

You`ve been whooshed clunked as well Tony !

A full public enquiry ASAP with witnesses summoned under Witness Orders to give evidence is the only way forward for justice for Madeleine

No, the McCanns ASKED for a review, and there were some claims by Clarence Mitchell earlier in the year that a review or re-investiagtion was under way.

BUT, they asked Home Secretary Alan Johnson for a review and re-investigation, and he obviously said 'NO'.

That's why the McCanns had to go and ask the new Coalition Home Secretary, Theresa May, for the same thing.

Now it looks like that also got nowhere, so the McCanns have had to go to the ipetitions site to try and go over the heads of two Home Secretaries, and, guess what. IT WON'T WORK.

Thx Tony for clarifying this .... are you aware that it should be standard proceedure for a Review of a missing peron to take place ?

Long-term cases should be reviewed by a senior detective of at least the rank of chief inspector, who has been trained as an SIO. Reviews should take place every 28 days for the first 3 months, then at 6 months and 12 months intervals, then annually thereafter:

* Review the level of risk;

* Check for any outstanding and incomplete actions;

* Quality assure actions already taken;

* Set new actions and enquiries in order to bring the investigation to a successful conclusion;

* Make recommendations about the management and ownership of the investigation;

* Set future review date(s) as appropriate.

All the above should be recorded as policy decisions within the report.

No I didn't know that, and that's very interesting.

HOWEVER, does this apply if a foreign police force are the 'lead' investigators?

I would think so as she is classed in the UK as a missing person ?

This is better

Goggle translation





After the recent cancellation of an injunction banning the book "Maddie, the survey prohibited"Kate and Gerry McCann are launching tonight, 0h in London, a new media campaign around the case of the disappearance of their daughter Madeleine.

Gerry and Kate leaving the Court of Lisbon in 2009


In an open letter, the parents of Maddie require more support for the Portuguese and British governments could "do more" to find their daughter, who disappeared May 3, 2007 in Praia da Luz in the Algarve region, at southern Portugal.
Kate and Gerry McCann, who never sought the reopening of the official investigation from the Portuguese authoritiesnow want the public to sign a petition to put pressure on British authorities and Portuguese to conduct a "review transparent and independent of all information related to the disappearance of Madeleine. "
The announcement of the initiative of the couple was greeted with skepticism by investigators of the Portuguese police who participated in the survey: "it is they themselves who have condemned the investigation by refusing to answer a large number of questions, refusing to clarify details and blocking, with their seven friends, holding a reconstruction of events the night of the disappearance, "said an inspector from the PJ in Portugal.
"They have the opportunity to request the reopening of the investigation at any time, and they know it", added the inspector.
Maddie's parents, who had access to records of the investigation through their lawyers, are now providing their "little team" is continuing its review of available data "despite the fact that we do not have access to all information authorities of the United Kingdom and Portugal.
Kate and Gerry McCann, who have remained in almost complete silence until the announcement of the cancellation of the injunction which prohibited Gonçalo Amaral talk about the investigation, lamented today that throughout the last two years, "no police force has actively done something to help find Madeleine."

Silence for some, not others

This new "campaign" is to dismiss that night in the world, several news agencies and newspapers have been instructed to embargoed until tonight.
[color:a88b=#000]In the United Kingdom, where the couple and their close associates continue to have "influence" on most media, recent statements by the former coordinator of the investigation to the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, Goncalo Amaral, n have been no great echo

My husband signed this about two hours ago, post no 25 or something and used his full name, asking for the case to be reopened and for kate to answer the questions. All gone now, name and comment.

I quite agree Ufercoffy, a number of posters from both sides of the fence are showing their true colours - absolute disgrace. They have no interest in the case anymore, Madeleine is nothing more than a morbid past time for them.

I agree Shibb. It has to be a fake petition. There's abbbsoooluuutely no way the Mcs would deliberately set themselves up for
"unhelpful & hurtful" comments. Oh wait, maybe I'll re-think that, almost four years and they still don't get it. They keep digging.
They don't know when to stop. Maybe now is the time when someone else will put a stop to them.

Oh and Halligen in court tomorrow . Coincidence?

Here is the first story to appear in our papers

Madeleine’s mother hits out at ‘fluffy worthless promises’ as appeal fund is set to run dry






By Vanessa Allen
Last updated at 10:24 PM on 2nd November 2010




Madeleine McCann’s mother yesterday condemned politicians for their ‘fluffy, worthless’ promises to help find her missing daughter.

The 42-year-old spoke out as she and husband revealed that their multi-million pound appeal fund will run dry within months.

Kate McCann accused the Government of giving up the hunt for the child who went missing shortly before her fourth birthday. She said a series of ministers had shrugged off her pleas for help.


Tireless: Kate and Gerry McCann have warned the fund to find their missing daughter will run out of money

‘I don’t want to be appeased, and that’s what I feel we’re getting. We need action, I don’t need fluffy worthless words,’ she said.

The couple have written an open letter, begging for political and financial help and launched an online petition to lobby the British and Portuguese governments for a formal review of the case.
Mr McCann said: ‘We have tried in vain to get the authorities to play their part but our requests have seemingly fallen on deaf ears.’

Madeleine vanished in 2007 during a family holiday in the Algarve resort of Praia da Luz.


Huge effort: Madeleine McCann went missing in May 2007

Portuguese police shelved an 18-month investigation into the disappearance after clearing her parents as formal suspects, and the case has remained closed.

Mr and Mrs McCann, of Rothley, Leicestershire, have met a series of ministers in the hope that the case will be re-opened or a cold-case review of the investigation launched.

Their hopes were raised when the Labour government looked at the feasibility of an Interpol review of the disappearance.

But when they met Home Secretary Theresa May in August, they learned the new Home Secretary had not read the report.

The McCanns have used £2million in public donations to pay for private detectives.
But heart consultant Mr McCann, also 42, said the fund would run dry early next year, and begged for donations.

Mrs McCann said: ‘We can’t stop trying to find Madeleine – or at the very least find out what’s happened.’

The Home Office said: ‘The Government wants to ensure that everything feasible is being done to progress the search.’
