THE KENNEDY TRIANGLE IN CHESHIRE
Swettenham Hall - where he lives
Wilmslow - where his Latium Empire is based, and where his in-house lawyer and the McCanns' Co-ordinating Lawyer', Edward Smethurst is based
Knutsford - where he bought a house from which to run the McCanns' private investigation team
Stockport - where he owns a football club, Stockport County
Sale - where he owns a rugby club, Sale Sharks
He also funded the building of a Jehovah's Witness Kingdom Hall in Cheshire. Brian Kennedy is a Jehovah's Witness. Robert Murat and Michaela Walczuk were attending the Kingdom Hall near Praia da Luz whilst at the same time Michaela Walczuk was married to Luis Antonio. Michaela Walczuk's claim of attending a Jehovah's Witness meeting on the evening of Thursday 3 May did not stand up
Brian Kennedy flew to Portugal with his in-house lawyer Edward Smethurst to meet with Robert Murat and his lawyer on 13 November 2007
Brian Kennedy met with Gail Cooper and co-ordinated the media blitz and press conference about 'monster man'/'George Harrison man' in January 2008
Brian Kennedy appointed Metodo 3
Brian Kennedy appointed Kevin Halligen
Brian Kennedy appointed local ex-cops Dave Edgar and Arthur Cowley to run the McCanns' private investigation team following the Halligen debacle. In September 2009 EDgar repeatedly claimed he was 'convinced' that Madeleine was being held in a secret prison lair 10 miles from Praia da Luz. Shortly afterwards, he fronted a press conference about a Victoria Beckham-lookalike with an Oz accent in which he said 'Jane Tanner might have seen a woman, not a man
Brian Kennedy's son Patrick assisted him in his support for the McCanns, including flying out to Morocco to pursue the McCanns'operation there in the autumn of 2007

Why are there no prosecutions pending? Interfering with witnesses is one thing, but to go into a foreign country where judicial secrecy is paramount, is really quite another thing altogether.

McCanns after Murat
The McCanns look for answers in Robert Murat, they are convinced of his involvement in the disappearance of their daughter. The multimillionaire that supports the expenses with lawyers and the private detectives of the Spanish agency "MÃ©todo 3" went on purpose to Algarve to know the British.
Brian Kennedy offered to help him, although he was unable to explain how. Why? Why does he believe that Robert or his mother Jennifer might have seen someone on the night of 3rd of May in the area of the Ocean Club. He was prepared to pay to the best technicians to draw a photofit of a possible suspect. Saying one thing and then saying another he ended to say that Kate and Gerry believe that he is innocent and they never came publicly to accuse him but he insisted that Murat might remember some important detail to help them find Madeleine.
The JN knows that Murat did not accept the help of the multimillionaire. On the contrary he was upset with the questions that were made and with the insistence of the multimillionaire that wanted him to remember the night of the disappearance, when Murat always said that he spent the night in his mother's house, Jennifer, in Praia da Luz.
The meeting - a dinner that Brian Kennedy asked to be discreet and far away from the eyes of the press - took place in the end of last year at a house of Murat's relatives in Burgau (Vila do Bispo). At the dinner were present Murat and Kennedy, the respective lawyers, Jennifer Murat and the aunt and uncle of Murat.
After dinner was Brian Kennedy that finished the conversation. He could not explain why three friends of the couple, belonging to the group "Tapas 7" came publicly saying that they saw Robert Murat in the area of the Ocean Club in the night of 3 of May and he (Kennedy) ended to enter in contradiction.
Francisco Pagarete does not confirm this meeting but the JN knows that the PJ is aware and that they monitored the steps of Kennedy and the detectives of MÃ©todo 3 very closely. According to the lawyer one year after the disappearance of Maddie, Murat "still does not understand how his name was involved in the case". "Everything is very strange" says the lawyer regretting that " a person was involved in this story without having nothing to do with it".
I am staggered by this news. It is hugely significant in understanding the degree to which those who are supporting the McCanns would go in seeking to pervert the course of justice.
If I understand the article correctly, Kennedy met with Murat to try to persuade him to come up with an abductor sighting, plying him with promises of engaging top forensic â€œartistsâ€ to help him. Kennedy additionally plied Murat with claims that he could not understand why Murat had been fingered by the Tapas crew. The meeting came to nothing as a result of Muratâ€™s refusal to play along.
So what is going on? Remember that the number one priority of Team McCann is to maintain the pretence of an abduction, to which end ever more fantastic stories were being invented at this time. A Murat sighting would have given them one more â€œMuratmanâ€ to photofit and send out to the worldâ€™s press, accompanied by an anguished press conference asking why the PJ were not energetically following up this crucial lead.
But is not Murat an Arguido, and could not his sighting be considered as a lame attempt to deflect attention from himself? Not if â€“ as the story makes clear â€“ Kennedy was hinting that the Tapas accusation was â€œmistakenâ€. In other words, it seems Kennedy was offering Murat a deal: Team McCann would lift the cloud of suspicion hanging over him, indeed would come to his defence. Possibly the resources of the McCann lawyers, including Carter-Ruck themselves, would be placed at his disposal. The price for that was for Murat to come up with a sighting.
But just as Kennedy was offering Murat a carrot, so in the background he was wielding a big stick. Remember that Kennedy is also largely funding Metodo 3, the masters of disinformation, and also Clarence Mitchell, responsible for feeding Metodo 3 dirt to the British media. At this time, Murat was the target of vicious smears generated by the above-mentioned parties: Laffin Assasin has pointed out just one example of the media blitz against Murat at Christmas time.
How interesting that this article - surely generated by the House of Clarrie - should be dated 28th December 2007, and by-lined from Praia da Luz. According to JN, the meeting between Murat and Kennedy "took place in the end of last year at a house of Murat's relatives", in Burgau, not a million miles from Praia da Luz. Either the article appeared in order to soften up Murat before the visit of the "helpful" Mr Kennedy, or was the vengeful reaction of Team McCann to Murat refusing to play ball. In either case, showing Murat what they are capable of doing to their enemies.
Had Murat caved in, facing such media pressure on the one hand and then miraculously offered salvation on the other, how would this have then been played to the public? I can write the script now for the appropriate Clarrie press conference:
â€œKate and Gerry have reacted with great interest to the latest witness to come forward with a new sighting of the abductor who took Madeleine. Robert Murat has provided us with a description of man he saw from the window of his motherâ€™s kitchen on the night of the tragic events. This photofit picture, drawn by a renowned FBI artist, shows a dark, swarthy individual carrying a child and closely resembles the description given by other witnesses. We appeal to the Portuguese police to put all the resources at their disposal to find this man, and if necessary, eliminate him from their enquiries. We are concerned that this has not been happening with sufficient vigour.
â€œGerry and Kate also wish to make it clear that they do not believe that Robert Murat has anything to do with the disappearance of their daughter. I am able to tell you now, that they have been able to meet Robert at a private location in the UK [Clarrie does not mention, flown to the UK on Kennedyâ€™s private jet], and are satisfied of his innocence. They believe that he â€“ like themselves â€“ are the victims of a mistaken investigation by the Portuguese police, and are appealing to the PJ to lift Robertâ€™s Arguido status. They are anxious that he does not fall victim to the same terrible miscarriage of justice that they are facing, and that the attention of the Portuguese police be directed where it should be - to the search for Madeleine. As of today, Gerry, Kate and Robert stand shoulder-to-shoulder in demanding only one thing: that the Portuguese police redouble their efforts to find this missing childâ€.
Presto! A new predator sighting with which to browbeat the PJ. Murat on their side, a solid front of arguidos against the bumbling Portuguese police. A credible witness statement from a man hitherto a favourite of the much-hated internet fora. And unsaid successes too: Murat now beholden to Kennedy and the McCanns, and able to be dropped back in it if he stepped out of line.
Luckily it didnâ€™t turn out that way, but it could have, had Kennedy had his way.
- according to reports in the Daily Express, Gerry called for people to cease the speculation about Murat's possible guilt on the same day it was announced that Murat had been in contact with Max Clifford.
- If the part of the article which states Pj were aware and also monitering metodo3 activities is true it would explain why m3 are suddenly less active
Who pulled the strings?...THE SYMINGTONS..And the Scottish connections...Look no further if you dare

No wonder he wouldn't help any further, he had his own reasons to cooperate and he did. Possibly facilitated the removal of the body and hiding it. Once the PJ got onto him he was compromised with whatever dirty little secrets he might have of his own, such as the encrypted material on his computer.
BK has a private plane as well? Hopefully better than the one Sir Philip Green kindly lent to the McCanns. Kate thought it was rather below standard.
Private planes must be incredibly useful.
The interference with witnesses by Kate (who immediately behaved as if she was not so much celebrity as royalty) and Gerry - who visited Mrs. Fenn and certainly the ubiquitous BK, is nothing short of scandalous.
Lasciate ogni speranza, voi ch'entrate.
