Statement from the McCanns to Portuguese Media??

Post by Guest on 22.12.10 15:07

What's this?? Is this for real?? It's obviously from a supporters forum as you can see from the bottom of the article, and the forums recommended on it. Why hasn't this appeared in the British press I wonder thinking



Kate and Gerry McCann – clarification on the news published based on Wikileaks’ referrals

December21

Gerry and Kate McCann sent a statement to the Portuguese media after Wikileaks published “news” last week about the investigation. Below is the statement:

“The speculations that have been published about our daughter’s disappearance as referred to on WikiLeaks forces us to take the following position:

1.WikiLeaks website has published a summary of an alleged telegram exchanged between USA and UK Ambassadors. This summary does not contain any new or relevant facts that will lead us to the discovery of what happened to our daughter.

2.If the mentioned telegram does exist, its content only tells that the British Police developed in September 2007 (we believe that to be the date of the correspondence exchange) information regarding our responsibility in the disappearance of our daughter.

3.We recall that on that date the team coordinated by Gonçalo Amaral was still investigating the case, having produced a report incriminating both of us. That report was not supported by evidences that validated his allegations so due to the absence of any incriminating evidence about us, the case was filed after eight months of further investigation.

4.Presumably, if any correspondence summarized by WikiLeaks does exist, it is based on the circumstances that arose in the investigation at that time since we do not know that there has been any further investigation besides the one that we all know about – and in the process there isn’t any information to the contrary.

5.Once again, the ex-inspector Gonçalo Amaral has seized the opening given by the Portuguese media for his thesis, producing deeply hurtful insinuations and citing the investigations’ defects. Defects in the investigation that he coordinated and which didn’t achieve any useful results for our daughter.

6.These speculations are periodically brought to public opinion by that former employee of the PJ, accompanied by threats to reopen the case on his own initiative.

7.When he claims publicly that he knows what is still to be done on the investigation and if “what is still to be done” is the investigation of facts, documents, data or real and concrete information that lead to Madeleine’s whereabouts, discovery or even the reason for her disappearance, he has the obligation to present it for the procedure to reopen the investigation, in which we are most interested.

8.We are aware that Madeleine’s disappearance is an inexhaustible source of enrichment to Gonçalo Amaral by means of false accusations, deeply offensive and harmful to the investigation itself, so we appeal to journalists’ critical sense to sort out what is journalistic information and what is speculation, surgically oriented, to obtain easy profits.

Kate e Gerry McCann”


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Depois das “notícias” divulgadas pelo WikiLeaks, acerca da investigação, a semana passada, Gerry e Kate McCann enviaram uma declaração à imprensa, que reproduzimos de seguida:

“As especulações que têm vindo a ser publicadas sobre a referência à publicação da WikiLeaks relativa ao caso do desaparecimento da nossa filha Madeleine, obrigam-nos a tomar a seguinte posição:

1.O site da WikiLeaks publicou um resumo de um suposto telegrama trocado entre os Embaixadores dos EUA e Reino Unido. Esse resumo não contém factos novos, com interesse para a descoberta do que aconteceu com a nossa filha.
2.Caso o mencionado telegrama exista, diz-nos apenas o conteúdo do seu resumo que a Polícia Britânica desenvolveu, em Setembro de 2007 – que julgamos ser a data da troca daquela correspondência – informações sobre a nossa responsabilidade no desaparecimento da nossa filha.
3.Recordamos que àquela data, a equipa coordenada por Gonçalo Amaral mantinha-se em funções na investigação do caso, tendo produzido um relatório incriminador para nós os dois, relatório esse que não resistiu à sua própria insustentabilidade e à inexistência no processo de quaisquer indícios que permitissem incriminar-nos, pelo que, após mais 8 meses de investigação, o caso foi arquivado.
4.Presumimos assim que a existir a correspondência resumida pelo WikiLeaks ela se baseie nas circunstâncias que ocorriam na investigação naquele período, uma vez que desconhecemos pessoalmente e não existem no processo dados contrários, que tenha havido quaisquer investigações complementares àquelas que são conhecidas de todos.
5.O ex-inspector Gonçalo Amaral, mais uma vez, tem vindo a aproveitar a abertura dada pela comunicação social portuguesa às suas teses, produzindo insinuações profundamente danosas em que aproveita para invocar defeitos da investigação que ele próprio coordenou e da qual não foram obtidos quaisquer resultados úteis para a nossa filha.
6.Estas especulações são periodicamente trazidas à opinião pública por aquele ex-funcionário da PJ, acompanhadas por ameaças vazias de reabertura do processo por iniciativa própria.
7.Uma vez que o referido senhor declara publicamente que sabe o que ficou por fazer naquela investigação e se «o que ficou por fazer» for a investigação de factos, documentos, dados ou informações reais e concretos que levem à descoberta do paradeiro de Madeleine ou mesmo das razões do seu desaparecimento, tem o referido senhor a obrigação de as apresentar no processo com vista à reabertura da investigação, de que nós somos os maiores interessados.
8.Temos consciência de que o desaparecimento de Madeleine é para Gonçalo Amaral uma fonte inesgotável de enriquecimento por via de imputações falsas, profundamente ofensivas e prejudiciais à própria investigação, apelamos ao sentido crítico dos jornalistas para destrinçarem a informação jornalística daquilo que são especulações e meios duvidosos de lucro fácil.

The bits in blue are mine, why "alleged", and "if the telegram does exist". They know perfectly well it exists.

What of their own obligations to present information to the procedure to reopen the investigation? We would be most interested to hear about some of those.

It is grossly defamatory to continually accuse Amaral of enriching himself on the basis of false accusations. After all, this was a joint Portuguese and British investigation. Why do they continue to pillary Amaral without ever mentioning Mark Harrison and Lee Rainbow et al.

The all-consuming hatred the Mcanns have for Goncalo Amaral shines through their press statement

Post by Tony Bennett on 22.12.10 16:32

Very interesting.

They look very nervous about this.

Just a note of caution. It looks like this press statement was prepared in English by the McCann Team and rapidly translated into Portuguese by one of their team in Portugal, before being released to the Portuguese press.

What we are reading here is I think a re-translation back into English; it's not their original words.

The all-consuming hatred for Goncalo Amaral shines through though, whatever the actual words they used.

''The all-consuming hatred for Goncalo Amaral shines through though, whatever the actual words they used.''

It most certainly does. However, they have never chosen to blast Lee Rainbow's written allegation of investigating them regarding a ''homicide''. It would be interesting to find out what Lee Rainbow has to say with regard to the allegations made by the Gaspars and McCann and Payne, and if he had knowledge of the Gaspars before Amaral.

Thoroughly confused. Is this reliable?

If this was from their supporters as alleged, now why would their supporters do something stupid like that?

The website link is strongly promoted on the McCanns' Official Facebook site. Possibly connected to vee8 and modnodder who posted up a venomous article attacking Amaral, again strongly promoted on the McCann FB site and given as the reason for them writing their book.

aiyoyo I think you have misunderstood, it is the McCanns statement, but posted up on a supporters blog. (I think) Here is the first line

I have read elsewhere that part of this was produced in one of the Portuguese papers, and Mr Amaral commented on it. (only what I have read)


But it is dated Dec 15th, strange that our papers haven't reproduced it though. Are things changing.

One is most perplexed that we have still not seen a McCann statement describing their anguish and fury at Lee Rainbow and Mark Harrison's terribly unhelpful comments regarding what may have really happened to Madeleine McCann.

Why are they only gunning for Amaral and the PJ?

Gosh, they would have to be suicidal to aim for UK crime profilers.

big grin

So it could be quite a while before they chance their arm in Harrison and Rainbow's direction then?

I dont think they will ever enter that arena, not even in pages of their book!

Amaral and PJ are good target because the stake is high. The former's money and the latter's credibility.
The mccanns are trying their luck with the former, which hopefully if the overturn injunction is anything to go by, they wont get their way!

So it seems their lawyer ID is sitting on that pile of books! Deplorable behavior, rub off from her clients.
