Scotland Yard case review
Further information: Operation Grange
Thats a bit naughty of the author of the wikipedia article. They've quoted redwood saying "conspiracy theories" yet, while the article they cite as a reference from The New York Times does include the phrase, it isn't a quote from Redwood. Its from the journalist that wrote the article

If he's retiring by the end of the year does it mean that a conclusion to the case will have been reached or will someone else take over as lead invesigator?

Will he be on the receiving end of a GONG?

Now what 'EVIDENCE' would that be then, DCI Redwood?

Do tell!

So we can all know, 'y'know'.

eta: 'EXPERIENCED INVESTIGATORS'?

Oh please.

Over 3 YEARS, £8,5+ MILLION of taxpayers money, rising daily, (God knows how much the 2 week PDL 'jolly' they are on at the moment is going to 'cost'), 38 'solely dedicated' Maddie 'cops', to come up with................... NADA, ZILCH, NUFFINK, ZERO!

Even the office junior, and Andy's Ex boss, Cmd Simon Foy, KNOWS the last person(s) to have claimed to have seen a 'live' missing person is automatically a 'person of interest'

BUT, according to those 'experienced investigators' at Belgravia (Met) he/she/they are NOT!
I'm baffled why you're posting this interview now, which is surely at least two years old and TOTALLY irrelevant to anything that's happened since.
Let me guess. He only said that to fool the McCanns?

And what has happened over the last two years?

Why have you changed the last sentence therefore completely changing the meaning of what was actually said?  This is what was said

"The PJ, meanwhile, has discarded Euclides Monteiro as primary suspect, and believes now, that the man who may have taken Madeleine, was a foreigner that has committed an isolated crime, at a time when he was spending his holidays in Portugal."

This strongly suggests that the PJ is also [or at least could well be] pursuing some form of abduction theory and not that they are talking in   code that really means "we are right on the heels of the McCanns" which some of the above posters seem to believe based on your misquotation.

With no news everyone seems to be twisting the meaning of every word from unofficial sources, many of these translated backward and forward that just confuse the situation more. We just have to wait for the tests,  but the body language doesn't look positive.

Of cause Andy can retire.... when is his book out?

 You're right, just endless speculation from 'sources' beause SY are not commenting.

It is clear that SY are not looking at the MCs, never have been and probably never will. It seems as if the PJ too are not pursuing that route, but even if they do, the SY 'conclusion' will almost certainly ensure that no extradition will ever take place.

It's not clear at all who SY are looking at.

Quite a while ago Andy R said the parents were not under suspicion.

Since then we have endless stories of imminent arrests, arrests within weeks etc. from the media which have never actually happened, which indicates those reports had no factual basis.
 
So all we can say logically is that at one stage SY were not looking at the parents but we have no idea who they are looking at now.

The foundation of this argument would be AR himself. He stated at the beginning (and during Crimewatch) that the remit was stranger abduction and none of the T9 were suspects (not his exact words). Nothing they have done so far leads me to believe anything has changed.

plus since then, HKP, Redwood is on record as saying that Maddie might have been dead when she left 5a and that abduction did not necessarily follow all of Grange's thinking on the case.

 They both indicate to me that Grange has no choice but to consider the parents as persons of interest, so maybe their status as POIs changed during the investigation.

I think we can say equally logically, perhaps more logically, that A R was, and still is, doing everything he can to mislead the public and the McCann's that they are in fact the main suspects. I am still (v optimistic admittedly) that they will arrest the McCanns once they feel they have a complete scenario with some forensic evidence to back it up. Plus the evidence that I believe someone may have given them over the last year.

So far we do know who SY are looking at: anyone else in the world other than the parents (as seen by their official communications and actions).

Firstly the searches currently underway are based in ILORs that are based on the theory of burglar abduction. Secondly redwood stated that GM had been eliminated as suspect based on forensic analysis of timeline. Thirdly there is political pressure to 'conclude' the case as stated by David Cameron. Lastly, the PJ got their fingers badly burned last time they followed that line of enquiry with the case coordinator nearly destroyed through litigation for purporting a theory based on available evidence. I founded my statement on this evidence.

nobody and i mean nobody should be in the clear till this case is solved , or closed and then still nobody is in the clear , someone was the last person to see madeleine alive , unless the mcanns and friends didnt do any checks at all for the scent to form what eddie and keel indicated to gives a fact that checks was not done . wasnt there a policeman on record as saying 15 out of 19 markers enough for conviction ? i believe in those wonderful dogs and only thing that will make me change my mind is if there was something planted

 The burglar related ILORs are press reports and nothing about the reasons for the ILORs has been stated by SY as far as I know.

Have never heard of this    " redwood stated that GM had been eliminated as suspect based on forensic analysis of timeline."

 Could you provide a source for this, please?

 I do agree that there is pressure to close this and conclude it, but a shelving does not indicate a whitewash to me, that would have been done under the radar not with public fanfare and huge expense.


 Sky has just reported that the police are not saying what has made them decide that this search area is significant. They are keeping their cards close to their chest. Meanwhile the media speculate and we are all speculating on the speculation !

It seems a bit controversial whether the abduction statement was made as reported, however I expect the end result to point the finger elsewhere, all the digging etc. doesn't put the parents in the frame necessarily.

Retirement ?

Post by PeterMac on 07.06.14 10:28

Is he retiring, or have then used regulation A 19
Reg A19 of the Police Pensions Regulations 1987 (A19)

A19 permits police authorities to require a police officer of the range of chief superintendent or below to retire if their retention would not be in the general interests of efficiency,

How much has he cost the Met ?
How long has he taken ?
How much has he delivered ?
Efficiency ?
Hmmmmm !

This is my first post on this forum, so apologies if I have put it in the wrong place....

http://www.sundayworld.com/top-stories/crime-desk/donal-macintyre-s-crime-cafe/maddie-search-expanded-as-effort-branded-pr-exercise-to-distract-from-corruption-troubles

I was really hopeful when Op Grange started that they were going to do a thorough review of the case. Whether or not an abduction took place, surely the police should examine all lines of enquiry, which would include the hypothesis the parents concocted the abduction. This has not been done, it is a total waste of time.

anything to add to that, as there is much debate here about how honest they are?
