Wouldn't the Portuguese be able to reopen the case if they considered this to be fresh evidence?

Will this appear in the British papers? (No, silly question.)

This is being reported in Expresso which is as far as I can ascertain a quality broadsheet newspaper according to one source of info and acc to another, not a daily but similar to the USA's Time magazine. Long article

not giving credence to this latest story, but Expresso did a quality interview with the parents in 2008 and did not pull any punches in their questions. On McCann files, can't post a link sorry.

Interesting. I know of a couple of people who pointed the finger at Murat before when they wanted to cause a diversion.

courtesy of google translate, best I can get sorry. thanks for the video link sweetex, I could not get it to work on the expresso page. This reads as incomplete, but when I hit read more on expresso I could not see any other text re this article.

Stephen Birch is 47 years old and is the figure of the day. This South African businessman said to have discovered the remains of Maddie, a few meters from the property to Ocean Club resort, where the girl disappeared on May 3, 2007.

Stephen bases his theory on what he says was more than 1 year and 3 months of research. The investigation was completed in the last 15 days, when moved to the Algarve to collect what he considers to be the conclusion of his research.

He came with two South Africans and even breaking the law, entered a private property, made ​​a prospecting area where the body believes to be Maddie.

The Express confirmed with a geologist who used the machine to scan the terrain that it is the most advanced technology currently existing for this purpose. Also the same specialist confirmed the result of the prospecting shows that there is something buried on site, although it is not possible to identify what, which means it can be anything and not necessarily the remains of Madeleine McCann.

Watch the video and hear Stephen Birch in an exclusive interview to Expresso, given at the Lisbon airport, while returning to South Africa, June 28.

Portuguese police says it is reviewing these data, as they have analyzed everything received over five years.

However, Scotland Yard asked for more material from Stephen Birch, to investigate the consistency of the theory of the South African. Maddie is either alive and captive or dead and buried, the truth is that the case continues to arouse the interest of people around the world. Stephen Birch, whose investigation has cost him thousands.

Eddie searched Murat's residence and gardens on 4th & 5th August 2007. He gave it the all clear.

We call this type of news “Tabloid News”.

That said, GA and the lawyer António Pinto Pereira have appeared on SIC, on "Tardes da Julia" this afternoon and have said some very interesting things:

GA denies completely having been interviewed by CM as reported and is expecting a clarification about that from the paper, although his efforts to contact the editor have been fruitless.

The fact that a person being an engineer doesn’t make a person a criminal investigator.

The machine allegedly now used was used by highly qualified personnel from the Geology Department of the University of Aveiro, by the request from the PJ, and that they checked much deeper than the reported depth. It was found that there was a roman village below Murat’s house.

The machine was then used, as he said, by highly qualified personnel and not by someone who has just now become familiar with it as reported.

For the news to be true, then the body had to be buried after the University of Aveiro’s investigation was done.

That this news subscribe some “medium theories” that say that’s where the body is.

GA says ironically that as Oporto’s PJ is supposedly tying up loose ends, it should now show interest in that house.

The only authorities searching for a live girl are only the UK authorities, as everyone else has assumed that the girl is dead.

The fact that the UK authorities are reported to have shown interest in the machine is completely against their supposed line of investigation: looking for an alive girl. It seems they’re assuming also that she’s dead.

That Murat no longer lives in Portugal.

He does sound confident and it also seems he is ready to defend himself should any libel case comes his side. He mentioned the names of the legal companies who will represent him if necessary, so it sounds like he did his homework?

Who knows? Hehe there were so many stories over the last 5 years, hopefully this is just not another one adding to the list.

Well it is bound to be portrayed as a put- up job by Amaral in some quarters and in others an attempt to drag Murat back into the mix, despite Birch saying he was not involved. Lord knows what is going on, all very strange.
And no doubt there will be a comment that the newspapers in Portugal are running the justice system if any credence whatever is given to this act of trespass and what was possibly found. If it is looked at and deemed nonsense not worthy of pursuit, so be it. I dont want time wasted on rubbish, the case is too important.

I will have to look back through the archives and I don't know how much I can disclose here, since an e-mail that I received on behalf of the Madeleine Foundation, well over a year ago, came from a SA investigator who worked on the case, was sent in confidence. He claimed that he could prove, with pictures, that Madeleine was buried in Murats back yard. This was not Stephen Birch and it turned out that this man was a psychic.

More later

Not sure quite how I'd be feeling if I was Murat right now. This guy is admitting that he has broken in to Murat's property repeatedly when he is out.

I was thinking the same.

Then also.... if it was me.... If I was in Murat's shoes today I'd had the police come and dig up the place again. No need for a warrant. I'll beg them to come look because there is just no way (if you not guilty) that anyone wants to sleep in a house knowing there is potentially a body in your garden. THEN only I'll think about Birch and tresspassing.

Murat's reaction

Post by sweetex on 05.07.12 20:58

"That makes no sense," said the Briton, who came under investigation by authorities at the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.
Referring to the search that the South African businessman Stephen Birch held in the backyard of his house in the village of Luz, Murat said that "it may lead to the Judicial Police, which is who should investigate, and give you all the information"

(Google translation from http://www.cmjornal.xl.pt/detalhe/noticias/nacional/portugal/robert-murat-fala-em-loucura-e-estupidez)

Read my post above though. I he has nothing to hide, let them dig up the place and see.

Robert Murat says that private research Stephen Birch "makes no sense"

Asked Thursday afternoon about the polls in your backyard, revealed in the Thursday edition of the 'Morning Post', Robert Murat found the whole situation "a foolish and stupid."

"That makes no sense," said the Briton, who came under investigation by authorities at the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

Referring to the search that the South African businessman Stephen Birch held in the backyard of his house in the village of Luz, Murat said that "it may lead to the Judicial Police, which is who should investigate, and give you all the information" .
