It can only be a lie or joke.

It only costs the web hosting fee which is about £40 a year. After this you only need someone to answer emails and update the site with text & photos which takes all of about 5 mins. if they are offering 37k to do this I might apply for the job myself

it costs that much if you have a relative in a small town in Scotland with a nice wee lad one of your family educated who is still a teenager and runs it from his home and his dad is a policeman....just an observation and an opinion here.

Clearly 'other expenses' have been moved into this category

I seem to recall it was declared that the website cost 37k. I apologise for using 'k' instead of the pound sterling sign but I had my computer stolen (at gunpoint in my house in South Africa) along with that went all the files I'd saved and my new PC is all American.

Other expenses wouldn't be right to declare as the set-up cost for a website. Up until that had happened (bloody quickly after Madeleine's disappearance) there was no stock of high quality wristbands and t shirts etc that could have been conveniently 'merged' into that area of cost (it wouldn't have been correct to do so anyway). Interesting that the last lot of accounts posted by the Mc's showed a pitiful amount on postage. Didn't include a stamp on a letter to the PJ to re-open the case. Obviously the ludicrous amount of money on a website that quite frankly a year 9 student could do a better job on imo is better in terms of marketing.

Just my very, very, very, humble opinion here.

Thanks for your replies. Indeed, a website, as plain and simple as this one even factoring in paypal fees for donations recieved, without salarying someone, and we were told it was done for free, would come nowhere close to this amount of money. Where was all the money being siphoned off to. Or were they robbed?

Have a look at the analyses of the accounts by a Fellow of the society of Chartered Accountants, Enid O'Dowd. It's on the McCannfiles.com and the ref is also in the first post on the 3 million silver pieces topic.
Really good - it mentions this amount as well.

I looked into this little companies portfolio. Most of the websites they 'claim' to have made and run are single page ones that look unfinished. I lost count of how many dead links there were.

They don't host it either yet their home page clear says they had involvement.

If SOCA went over that funds accounts I am sure they would find many irregularities. Do statements from their official spokesman as to where money has gone count as evidence? AKA in 2007 they spent 80k for a poster campaign in Portugal Spain and Morocco, only there is no proof and a hournalist from Al Jazeera has stated he saw not a single poster in Morocco when he went there to film the documentary.

Al Capone was sent to prison for tax evasion.
Not for Murder, robbery, extortion...
And the "Fund" is clearly within English legal jurisdiction, legally advised by English lawyers and "audited" by English auditors, with English resident directors.
The events in PdL are within the jurisdiction of the Portuguese.
The "Fund" is not.
The McCanns are both beneficiaries and directors.

Kate Mccann has stated on video, in one of their interviews with Sandra Felgueiras that she dealt with the website herself, claiming she updated it and maintained it, so this cost is not even necessary if Kate is doing the work herself??

This is the video where she makes that statement, from about 30 mins onwards, in the section where they are being interviewed sat by the waterside.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WWyjVmxWzDY

So what exactly was the money spent on if Kate was editing the website herself?

The website was / is quite basic, didn't have very much on it and so on. £37k is a stupid amount, either they were robbed or got the decimal point in the wrong place. If it cost that much to set up a basic site in all cases the internet would never have taken off! Small retailers have sites that are so much better, with large array of products pictures, facilities to enlarge images, and all sort and their turnovers are nowhere near £37k never mind just the set up!!

Anyway, this is the sort of assistance to the McCanns that someone in their circle of friends and family was bound to have had the capability of doing for free bar the domain name and £40 quid a year hosting.

£37k ? I'd like to see the invoices and break down of costs for that!!

A report from September 2007 as to who was running the website then.
