The witnesses on the balcony (poss. Moyes) were talking about the night of 3rd.

These witnesses throw a very large spanner in the works as they are sure there was nobody in the street below.

SEPERATELY, there are apparently witnesses who claim that the NIGHT BEFORE, a "middle-aged couple" went into 5A to comfort a crying Maddie.

I think, from my reading of these reports, these are two different events.


I read it like that also.  However that gives three sets of witnesses.  The Moyes, the middle aged comforters and whoever it is that saw the middle aged comforters.  So who are the third witnesses

What about 'Rasta-man'?
http://www.mccannfiles.com/id327.html


Following various informal conversations related to the area of research, we were contacted by a British citizen named JEREMY MICHAEL WILKINS, holder of passport no. XXXXXX, owner of mobile phone no. +447XXXXXX, living at XXXXXX. He spends his holidays at, "WATERSIDE GARDENS," block G4 APT 0 (about 50 metres from the apartment where the small child was)

Stated:

1. that yesterday, between 20h30 and 21 hours, while he was in "THE TAPAS" bar, he noticed a person of around 1.70, with long blond hair, apparently of the "rasta style", and dressed in green military-style clothes;

2. that this person did not stay very long and their behaviour was somewhat strange, since they seemed to be a little nervous;

3. he was alone, he did not speak to anyone and left soon afterwards


MICHAEL SPERREY
CLARE SPERREY

------ In the main reception (open 24h) of the Ocean Club, the signatory [undersigned] was able to observe a person with long hair, curly, blonde in colour, with camouflage shorts and green sweat-shirt, which fit the description of the suspect of the "Rastas", it being that I questioned the receptionist about him, who said that this individual and his wife are guests in the hotel and he has been tireless, since yesterday, in search of the missing girl. Attached are photocopies of their passports as well as the hotel registration form. ----------

[The very last paragraph of my translation of pages 121-125 in /PJ/TAPAS-EMPLOYEES.htm states that they are passport copies of the person identified as the man with 'Rasta' hairstyle, camouflage shorts and green sweat-shirt (taken to be the person seen by Jez Wilkins per his witness statement), and his wife. They were resort guests. I have no reference to a formal witness statement from them on file, merely the above identification to eliminate them from the inquiry.]

Chris Spivvy (not sure of his credibility as an analyst of this yet) claims:


Michael Sperry owns an advertising company in Solihull, 56km from the McCann’s home in Rotheley, Leic.

Michael’s personality, and general interests, together with his interests in sports and the fact that to a large extent, he is driven by adrenalin type activities, leads me to believe that he and Gerry McCann are good friends.

At the time of Madeleine’s disappearance, Michael Sperrey was staying in a holiday apartment in the Ocean Club called Fugi Palms. The Sperry’s stayed in unit number FP05, a unit on the first floor that looks straight into the back of Mr Murat’s property.

Michael Sperrey’s witness statement and Stephen Carpenters second witness statements have never been released to the public. Both men stayed in the Fugi Palms block looking into the back of the Murat property. Stephen stayed in FP02 on the ground floor. http://www.chrisspivey.co.uk/?p=11585

If true, the Sperry's might have been witnesses to something...

Michael Sperrey is apparently the person identified by Jez Wilkins as 'Rasta-man' seen by Jez either in the restaurant between 8.30pm and 9pm on Thursday 3rd May looking suspicious (Jez version of events to police on 4th May '07) or seen by Jez as he was pushing his pram around the resort that evening heading towards Ocean Club reception with a woman and then in the toilet near the pool area and 'taking a long time' (Jez 8/4/08 police statement).

Why would the fact that Michael Sperrey has been identified as  a guest at the hotel eliminate him from the enquiry?

I refer to this part of the PJ files link:

Is this the Mike Sperrey?

http://www.c9dd.com/


Which ever Mike this is, he has some objectionable ideas about how 'being rude' as he puts it can 'promote a brand.' In my opinion.

His father is a most interesting person too IMO. Not sure I should post what I have found out as may not be relevant to the case.

Well, if Mike Sperrey is relevant to the case (and it does appear that he could be a 'person of interest') then the genetic roots of Mike Sperry might well be of interest, in terms of understanding where he is coming from, in terms of his behaviour, thoughts and how he views things. 

Plus his terms of reference with regards to what he might have been brought up to believe is important/acceptable and so on.

I have to say that I do not find MS interesting, per se (on the contrary) my only interest in him and his shallow and puerile 'marketing' lies in his connections with GM and GM's hideous friends.

I suspect that what you have found, GS, might be at least a *little bit* relevant to the case....if only to 'disprove' any theories that MS might be a 'person of interest'.

(I can sooooo understand why police from a certain country might be so irritated and annoyed and downright determined not to be made fools of by a number of idiotic people from the UK.....)

I only found him interesting because of the following:

1. Had a booking at the tapas on 3.5.07
2. Was supposed to be "rastaman" acting suspiciously.
3. No statement by him or his wife in the police files.

I will hold my fire re his dad for the time being but here is a pic of Mr Mike Sperrey.

Would you say he looks like a blond rasta?

  
Or just a man with dark blonde curly long hair?

A marketing man and experienced in open sea sailing - he certainly has the right kind of useful CV - in my opinion.

Could he be one of the two blond men (the curly-headed one) seen by sisters Jensen and Wiltshire on a balcony outside an unoccupied apartment 3rd May?

His passport photo is a shocker - he looks like Tannerman!

Why no statement from him?

Have I got this right? He was booked in the Tapas on 3rd May yet no one from the bar, or workers from the restaurant remember seeing him there?

Someone who has slipped under the radar perhaps. And we can't even scrutinise his version of event s because we don't have them!

Could be a blonde 'rasta' I suppose. Certainly could have been one of the blonde haired men spotted by the sisters. Also of note is that Mrs Fenn's niece -sitting on the balcony above the McCann apartment, spotted a blonde haired man acting suspiciously while opening a gate near the McCann apartment on Thursday afternoon. Only he had thick cropped hair, so presumably not 'rasta man', but maybe the other blonde man?

I also read on one of the other forums - missing madeleine? - where a very detailed analysis of the tapas booking sheets - among other things - had been carried out, that the Sperrey's had a booking for 2+1 on one of the evenings (Thursday?) which was a little odd, as they had no children so who was the +1?

Indeed. I am becoming intrigued by the sailing expedition undertaken by Russell and Matt on Thursday afternoon. During which Russell apparently saved Matt from the sea. And in which one of them hurt a wrist? Apparently part of the harness broke on their catamaran, so another boat came out to repair it.

I also notice how much Russell, in his police statement,  talks about the man (Nigel I think Matt named him in his police statement) from Southampton who apparently tells the group of adults which Kate and other Tapas friends are standing with, how he feels 'pervy' or 'like a dirty old man' (as recorded by Kate in her book) because he wants to take photos of his three year old daughter playing tennis.

Apart from the fact that this is a very odd thing for the average (non-paedo) parent to say or even think, in my opinion, it is my belief that this whole episode has been deceptively 'spun' by the McCircus brigade one of whom was caught taking photos of children playing mini-tennis by another parent who found this behaviour unacceptable enough to approach them and tell them so.

If you look at one of the first police statements given by Matt, you can see that it is their group who is using the video-recorder and Nigel approaches them about it, telling whoever is using the video-recorder that their recording of his three year old daughter playing tennis is making him feel uncomfortable.

Matt cannot dig himself out of this hole, but merely lamely tells the police he doesn't remember seeing anyone with a video-recorder! (Which suggests to me that it was probably him using it.)

This raises a large number of questions, especially given that there appear to be no genuine photos of Madeleine from that holiday (the 'final' photos released weeks after her disappearance are fake, in my opinion.) None of the group take any photos of Madeleine during the holiday, but the find the time to video-record a stranger's three year old daughter playing tennis.

Then, when the man comes up to them to remonstrate (quite rightly, in my opinion - it's weird to want to video-record a stranger's child, especially when you can't be bothered to video-record your own) they twist and distort the version of events to make it appear that it is Nigel, rather than Matt (or Russell or whoever else was recording/photographing Nigel's child) who is suggesting that he feels like a dirty old man.

Whereas, in actual fact, it would be much more likely that Nigel was thinking precisely that very thing about either Matt or Russell. Which is why he went up to the group.

Unsurprisingly, the police have shown considerable interest in this encounter, charmingly described by Kate in her book as a light-hearted little banter about how paranoid everyone has become about paedophiles. 

Quite so, Kate. 

Russell really does get himself up to the neck when describing this episode to the police who clearly find what he is saying extremely suspicious, which it is, imo.

 1578    “’We then had a conversation’'”
 Reply    “Yeah, that ‘the ludicrous pressure on parents that they can’t take photographs of their own children’, because I think that was the essence of it.  And certainly the other, the other aspect of the conversation that was made, which kind of, you know, is, huh, is doubly haunting, was that, you know, we said that, you know, ‘You’re far’, you know, ‘You’re far more likely to get clobbered by your uncle or your neighbour than some’, you know, ‘random stranger’.  Erm, which in light of the way that the Police investigation has gone, erm, it feels like, you know, erm, a real kick in the nuts”.
 

1578    “’Far more like to get clobbered by’'”
 Reply    “You know, you’re far more likely to have, you know, you know, to have a problem with somebody, from somebody you know, and we actually said, and that was actually sort of said, you know, we all worry about, you know, a small number of fairly kind of sick perverts”.
 

1578    “Rather than a stranger'”
 Reply    “Rather than a stranger, yeah, but, huh, erm, which of course, you know, of course statistically is true, erm.  And the bit here that says ‘I found this most uncomfortable’, is that, you know, since, since this happened, you know, ten or eleven hours before, before Madeleine was abducted, it just seemed a really, it’s really, you know, a very, very uncomfortable coincidence, you know, ever since I found this, you know, this whole pile of things that are nast, you know, are really kind of unpleasant, but the fact that we actually had this conversation, you know, within twelve hours of her going missing was, was, erm, well, haunting, you know, that men were, erm.  You know, it’s just, erm, I mean, it is just a coincidence, it’s not as if, within the space of a year in Britain, you know, you don’t hear of, you know, a school banning cameras and, you know, it’s quite, it’s not an uncommon conversation I think for, you know, for parents with young children these days to think, you know, you know, has it gone too far, you know, is there too much, is there too much kind of worry and protection and are we, you know, damaging children’s upbringing, by by not allowing them to, you know, to, to run free a little.  Erm, and I think, yeah, and the last statement, I definitely want that there.  I mean, as far as I was concerned, this was, this was an entirely reasonable comment from this man, he’d just walked past a few parents, some of whom he probably didn’t know, erm, and he was taking photographs of his daughter, who was on this tennis court, but there were adjacent children in, in, you know, in shot.  Erm, and I can, you know, particularly as a, as a man, can particularly understand how he might have felt going up there because clearly, erm, you know, this is, this is something that, you know, you need to be aware of.  And my dad, you know, we’ve had a conversation about this since, you know, when I was little and growing up, in the street he would freely talk, he would freely talk with my friends and people going by and he says, you know, just, you know, these days you just, you just ignore people, you ignore children because you wouldn’t want anyone to sort of think that you were, you know, you were kind of, erm, trying to entertain them with an ulterior motive.  So this did not feel bad and I would hate to think that me saying this that anyone would think that I was trying to implicate this man, I do not think that there was anything untoward in it”.

So is this the person that Jez saw that evening at either the Tapas restaurant or in the toilets near the Tapas restaurant, depending on which version of events you read? 

If it wasn't him that Jez saw, it should still be possible to trace the person that Jez did see, as it is on record that Robert Murat told Jez that the person he had seen was a local man. So should have been no problem tracing him.
