Sorry, that's the watch advert - it's 10-11.

Are the other pages completely blank for you?

Could just as easily be a discussion about Maddie breast feeding but some posters want to believe its paedophilia

Well Mr Gaspar didn't think the action was related to the children at all.

I think it's disastrous that police statements become entertainment in the press. For a lot of reasons.

The confidentiality issue is one that helps ensure that people are honest to the best of their ability when giving a statement. Who would give a statement about a third party if they believe it will get slashed across the papers.

This kind of thing does nothing at all for anybody.

Its great that the statement has been published in a newspaper but have some reservations about naming the Gaspars.

As you said before - it's all out in the public domain already. Too late to go back and un-name them now.


I really hope that the UK never makes a move towards this kind of public access in police investigations.

Press freedom is very important.
I'm glad it's been published and am looking forward to Gerry's explanation.

Press freedom is important, but imvho not as important as a witnesses right to anonymity and freedom to make a statement which remains confidential.

Has anyone seen the original Gaspars statement in english or are we seeing the one that has been translated into portuguese for the files and then back into english by a forum member. I hope nothings been lost in translation.

I'm glad it's out for all to see, but agree that the Doctors name should have been blanked out. It must have taken an awful lot of guts, and heart searching to make a statement like that about your friends. Being doctors too they always seem to stick together. Dr. 's feelings must have been pretty strong, otherwise she would not have contacted the police imo.

These have been public for a long time though. It's been published all over the web in an aim to publicise it.

At least a paper gets thrown away.

when you get on the right page click on the article and it zooms in.

I loved the title of the system for reading the paper. 'flipping book'

too right!

I dont think we can come to any conclusions from the statement other than it warrants some investigation

Have just had a look at the article and it only mentions David Payne's behaviour - I was under the impression that both David and Gerry were mentioned in this statement. Why no mention of Gerry?
The Gaspars' statement has been a ticking time bomb for some time, considered so sensitive by the LP that they withheld it from the PJ for 6 months. Why?
I believe that the publication of the statement will lead the questions being asked of the LP's decision to withhold it from the investigation and, hopefully, will lead to the re-opening of the case.

Because she 'thought this', 'thought that', didn't know what they were talking about. Never confronted him about it, her husband didn't confirm it etc.
It's been investigated and rejected.

Really? Who investigated it? Where is the proof it has been investigated and rejected?

Yeah I'd like to know that too simplyme.
Can you provide a link to confirm your claim, Inyx, or was it guesswork?
