I thought is was a strange report Inyx. Then Keir Simmons is an accredited journalist and pin up of many a forum, so I don't quite know what to think flower

I'm not sure if it's reached the news Twinkle. I've only read about it on forums, twitter and Jo's blog.

ETA @ Pascal : I don't understand why he didn't call Murat or Tanner him/herself to verify it.

He phoned Murat's solicitor who confirmed it. Mark William Thomas also confirmed it on Twitter. What more do you want?

I want to hear it from the man himself, that's what I personally want.

For two reasons:
firstly because so far this has been an affair carried out by blog, forum and Twitter;
secondly because the case(s) seem to me to be fraught with difficulty for Murat to prove, and in addition could bring up all kinds of information from the files which he might find embarassing, not least his own frequent changes of story about when, where and who.

The Mccanns have a good reason for undergoing the same embarassment, whether you believe them either innocent or guilty. I can't see the same overwhelming need for Robert Murat to subject himself to the same scrutiny.

MWT is a charlatan that has been shown u p many a time i believe. Was he not the ex police officer that claimed to have been involved in Soham, but was found not to have been? Why would a nobody have access to SECRET documents?

Snowy, what on earth do you mean 'the McCanns had good reason for undergoing the same embararassment'? It is so unjust that they have done their utmost to silence a man who has devoted nearly 3 years of his life in trying to find out what happened to the a little girl, left alone night after night alone and frightened.

Snr Amaral deserves a medal for what the McCanns have put him through. As Iv said before, too many know what happened for it to be kept a secret for ever.

According to local journalists in Lagos, Murats lawyer confirmed the case to " several UK based reporters ". The case is criminal and at an early stage.

EXPAT IS TO SUE TAPAS BAR FRIENDS
Story Image


Robert Murat is taking legal action against four of the McCanns' friends

Friday February 19,2010
By Daily Express Reporter

BRITON Robert Murat, wrongly labelled a suspect in the Madeleine investigation, is taking legal action against four of the McCanns’ friends, it was revealed yesterday.

The estate agent has lodged a “criminal complaint” against Jane Tanner, 39, who claimed she saw a man carrying a child near the McCanns’ holiday apartment on the night Madeleine vanished.

A second complaint has been made against Ms Tanner’s partner, Dr Russell O’Brien, and Fiona Payne and Rachael Oldfield, also members of the so-called Tapas Seven.

It is understood that the complaints centre on allegations that the four gave evidence to Portuguese police which led to them making Mr Murat, 35, a suspect in the investigation.

The expat, who lived in Praia da Luz at the time, was found to have no involvement in Madeleine’s disappearance.

Details of the allegations, lodged at a court in Lagos in the Algarve, are unclear because under Portuguese law the parties involved cannot discuss them.

This has been on the Express website for quite while now.

Yes, saw that earlier.....no journalist, no quotes and recycled from the 2008 article.

Hopefully someone will soon officially confirm or deny this.

Seems that it is a Criminal Case as opposed to Civil, therefore there will be no money settlements or apologies to prevent the case going ahead.

What is he going to sue them for? Eyewitnesses are often wrong so surely no-one would come forward if they saw anything for fear of being sued.

It appears from Mitchell interview that it may be going ahead.

He's said he's not going to comment on what Mr Murat or his legal advisors are doing.
recorded and broadcast by Channel4 yesterday???

So he didn't confirm or deny it.

No confirmation no denial. Just my take on it.

What he did confirm, is that identification of Murat is not in the police files......be interesting to see find out what is happening.

Well as long as Mr Murat or his lawyer don't open their mouth, I guess we won't know what's happening.

There's been loads of speculations about that before the payout was announced.

about three months before.

but that was a UK case.


also we could all see clearly why he was doing it, and the evidence that he's been libelled.
