The parents of missing Rothley girl Madeleine McCann have withdrawn their High Court bid to force disclosure of information held by police.
7 July 2008 | Posted by Joana Morais Leave a Comment
 
Court 20 Before MRS JUSTICE HOGG
Monday, 7 July, 2008
At 10:30 AM
IN OPEN COURT
FD07P01121 McCann
Applications/Summonses in Court as in Chambers
FD06P01276
 
Source: Court Hearings: Family Division
 
Mrs Justice Hogg, who has effectively been Madeleine's legal guardian since her parents applied for her to be made a ward of court last year, said she had excused the McCanns from attending the hearing because "they have suffered enough and I wished to ease their burden".
 
"The McCanns will now pass on the information to Metodo 3, the Spanish-based detective agency which has been following up reported sightings independently of the police, for them to conduct their own inquiries." 

Source: Telegraph

Note: How biased and prejudiced is that the same Judge, who is Madeleine Beth McCann Ward of Court - that is, the guardian of Madeleine's interests - is the same one judging the McCanns parents accesses to the UK police files belonging to a Portuguese process where they, the parents are in fact the main suspects of crime?



VERY ODD MADE A WARD OF COURT WHEN THEY WERE SUSPECTS , WITH DOCUMENTS ? SO THAT CANT BE LEGAL CAN IT IS THIS THE HOLD UP.

Madeleine McCann parents drop court fight as police agree to share records
The Guardian
Monday 7 July 2008

Madeleine McCann's parents today withdrew their high court request for British police to release documents about the investigation into her disappearance.

The legal challenge was withdrawn after a hearing in which Leicestershire police said they would share 81 pieces of information with Kate and Gerry McCann relating to calls received from the public shortly after Madeleine disappeared on May 3 last year.

The McCanns' spokesman, Clarence Mitchell, described the decision by Leicestershire police to pass the information to Madeleine's parents as "very good news for the investigation". "Each of these is important information. We have potentially 81 new leads," he said.

Mitchell did not give details about the information being released, but said he hoped more would be forthcoming.

"The critical thing is that this is early information and potentially strong information," he said.

During today's hearing, the presiding judge made an usual appeal for the child's abductor to come forward. Mrs Justice Hogg said she believed "at least one person knows what has happened to Madeleine" and urged that person to contact the police.

"I ponder about that person: whether that person has a heart and can understand what it must be like for Madeleine to have been torn and secreted from her parents and siblings whom she loves and felt secure with, and whom she no doubt misses and grieves for," she said.

"I entreat that person, whoever and wherever you may be, to show mercy and compassion and come forward now to tell us where Madeleine is to be found."

Hogg praised the police in the UK, Portugal and elsewhere for their efforts in trying to find Madeleine and added that she would remain a ward of court until a further order.

The McCanns, both 40, were not at the hearing. Mitchell thanked Hogg on their behalf for pointing out that there was no evidence that Madeleine had been harmed or was dead. He said 11,000 pieces of information were being held as part of the investigation and just one could provide the clue to her whereabouts.

Madeleine, then three, vanished from the family's holiday apartment in the Portuguese resort of Praia da Luz while her parents were having dinner in a restaurant nearby. Last week it emerged that Portuguese police had handed their file to prosecutors recommending that the case against the McCanns be dropped due to lack of evidence.

It is not a spanner in the works. It is fundamental to an understanding of how the McCanns have tried to manipulate the press, public sentiment, and even the law for many years,
and now seem to be failing .
You need to read back some years, but I am sure the relevant documents are on this site.
Try the search engine top right.
The simple answer is - The McCanns applied for WOC, and it was granted.  In 2008.
They knew that.
Their Portuguese lawyer knew that
All their English lawyers knew that
The Trustees of the "Fund" knew that
The lawyers and accountants acting for the "Fund" knew that
Everyone in the Western world with half a brain cell and an interest in the fate of a little girl knew that.

But someone has nevertheless been prepared to fund this nonsense

Dr Amaral has had to go through a long legal process to PROVE that.
And now he has.

Courts are not allowed to assume things.  
There is a very limited list in English law of things about which a Court my "Take Judicial Notice"
And that list includes the number of hours in a day, days in a week, direction of rising of the sun . . .tides. .  but not weather conditions, which have to be spelled out = proved.
They cannot assume knowledge of very much more.

I think I'm right in saying that the McCanns' application to have Madeleine warded in May 2007 was not given any publicity PeterM and that the fact that she had been made a Ward of Court only come to public attention cJuly 2008 when the McCanns' attempt to abuse extend certain provisions inherent in Wardship resulted in their having to back down in the face of the refusal of Leicestershire Police to give them copies of all of the documents/information which they held in respect of the case.

Imo it's also right to say that while the fact Madeleine McCann is a Ward of Court should not have escaped the attention of 'everyone in the Western world with half a brain cell and an interest in' her fate, few have any comprehension of what this means either in law or in everyday terms as evidenced by the profusion of erroneous assumptions on the libel trial postponed thread.

While this may be seen as a lamentable failure on the part of certain English-speaking UK residents to exercise what brain cells they may possess, such ignorance is understandable for those inhabitants of countries which do not have either the concept or the fact of Wardship as part of their family law proceedings and it seems to me that this goes to the heart of another matter which is: was Isabel Duarte made aware that Madeleine is a Ward of Court when she advised the McCanns and nstituted proceeding against Dr Amaral and his co-defendants and, if so, was she also made aware that it is necessary for prior consent to be obtained from the High Court before any legal proceedings can be instituted on behalf of Madeleine McCann?

If that happened I think ID would have a pretty solid case to counter-sue for non-disclosure of vital information which would have profoundly affected the court case for which she was hired to represent them !

If ID was made aware that Madeleine is a Ward of Court at the time she advised the McCanns, it would have been remiss of her not to have taken into account all possible implications this could have on the proceedings including their legality, rd

If ID became aware of the Wardship subsequent to having instituted proceedings on behalf of her clients, it seems to me that she was duty bound to inform the Court in order that the enquiries which it has been necessary for Dr Amaral to undertake were more properly undertaken by herself/her clients or by the Court at the direction of the judge..

Nevertheless, the judge has decided that the final court session, which will include a statement from Gerald McCann and the presentation of closing arguments from all sides, should take place regardless of the matter of the Wardship.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
........and the presentation of closing arguments from ALL sides........
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
WHEN GA and the other defendants WILL 'cite' the following, from the 'lead investigator' of the UK's, Operation Grange

AR: "But on the other side of it, there is always the potential that she didn't leave the apartment alive and what is important for us to do in consider all the options."

AR: "While I completely accept that there are differences (between the break-ins and the McCann case), there is no abduction that we can see,  but the assumption from that is that Madeleine McCann has been abducted. That may not necessarily follow with all our thinking about what may have become of Madeleine McCann".

Chief Inspector Andy Redwood had said the assumption that Madeleine had been alive when she left the apartment "may not follow with all our thinking" on the case

Detective Chief Inspector Andy Redwood, in charge of the hunt for Madeleine, accepted there were differences between these cases and that of Madeleine's disappearance but added that there was a possibility that she had not left her family's holiday apartment alive when she disappeared in May 2007.

eta: and, AND they will ALL be 'citing' the following

p. 316

In his statement to the Court, (WITH THE VERY SAME JUDGE WHO DID THE 'WARDSHIP' Mrs Justice Hogg) the Assistant Chief Constable of Leicestershire Police wrote: “While one or both of them may be innocent, there is no clear evidence that eliminates them from involvement in Madeleine’s disappearance”.

Do we think there might be a significant "find" in Portugal prior to the final decision being reached in the court case?

It seems to me that, regardless of whether there is any significant 'find' in Portugal, the McCanns' case has been blown out of the water and in the unlikely event there is any 'finding' in their favour, there are more than sufficient grounds for a successful appeal to the Supreme Court of Portugal, canada

Good thread!
How will westminster respond?
Brown, with the pink one started it. Now, the pink one is standing for a tory seat.
Do they also own Hogg?

Time will tell, but I think the UK is on a near-vertical downslope  sad1 

Just look at the recent national debt charts - 1.5 Trillion !

So, as regards to Madeleine, I think the current coalition might not be considering the case as a priority. Or perhaps they might. Let's see if Hogg is owned!

I have always asked in this forum: "HOW can a 'missing child' EVER bring a court claim?"

The last time the McCanns 'included' Madeleine in a court claim was the book 'ban' case,

THEY LOST! (again)

Costs were awarded AGAINST them ALL (which included wee Madeleine, Sean and Amelie)

They still haven't 'stumped up' those 'costs', btw, deferring them until after the ongoing libel case, thinking it was a shoe in for a 'win'

Don't know what plan 'B' was but plan 'A' appears to be 'kaput'

imo, obviously.

I agree.

Anyway i think the PJ have, in the weeks the Met haven't been there, been over the Met's 'preferred/indentified' search areas with a fine toothed comb.

I think perhaps SY and PJ have already got something, and this dig may be to locate supporting evidence.

For instance, suppose they've found a bag. Suppose the bag contains evidence of having been buried. Suppose the evidence is a type of soil or rock composition which is only found in one place in PDL.Suppose the dig is to locate a possible place where the bag had been temporarily hidden before it was moved to another location.

Thats what I think too, tiny. No wonder they did not want the dig to start too soon. Suppose something is found that proves Madeleine is dead. Than Madeleine's estate has to join the suit.

Doies anyone else also think they should ask their money back from Isabel. This issue has been brought up here from the start, did not she researched that?

Especially when this quote comes back to haunt Kate McCann:

Well, it can't be more obvious. 

Sadly there were many things in this case very obvious that were ignored.

In English law 'The dead have no rights and can suffer no wrongs' therefore, should Madeleine McCann be found to be or be declared dead, her estate cannot be party to the libel trial, lj.

So that Mr & Mrs could use it to their advantage and did so by obtaining files held by the Leicestershire police.  Justice Hogg ruled against Leicestershire police, and granted Mr & Mrs be given access to a number of police files...all for Maddie's benefit!


I don't believe they were given all of the files or anything significant.  Didn't Kate complain the information they were allowed was already in their possession from the PJ files.


Yeah, I believe they just got the list of names that had contacted them through website or phone. Good for the Leicester police. While their role not always was very honest or proffessional this they did at least try and also launched the great line:

“While one or both of them may be innocent, there is no clear evidence that eliminates them from involvement in Madeleine’s disappearance.”

The libel trial has been front page news since 2010 and can't have escaped the attention of the family court. Madeleine is a Ward of Court and it's confirmed that the McCanns didn't obtain the necessary authorisation to bring an action in her name but for some reason the court has ignored it. The British Family Court is renowned for its ruthlessness so why has this situation been allowed to continue for 5 years without anyone from the court stepping in?

Had Amaral not brought the issue up, there's the possibility the couple would have got away with it and then the British courts would have remained silent like they've been since 2010, even before!

I have to say that huge credit goes to Amaral for obtaining the documentation. It couldn't have been easy especially given how difficult the PJ found it trying to obtain documents before the case was archived. Perhaps, Tessy May really wants this case solved.


Some credit too for the people who once in a while donate to his campaign. What I understand to obtain those papers was very expensive and he could not have done it on his own. So anyone who can skip a coffee from the coffee shop and donate that money to him: it helps and it carries results!
