"You cannot trump the wishes of the parents"

Post by Get'emGonçalo on 26.07.15 9:41

said Sir Christopher Meyer, on the Daily Politics Show, 2nd April 2009

Andrew Neil:
“Why couldn't you stop... why... why couldn't the Press Complaints Commission stop some British newspapers from implying, almost claiming, that the McCann's had killed their missing daughter, when there wasn't an iota of evidence to show that was true and, frankly, I can't think of anything worse for parents who have lost their daughter to be accused in the tabloids of having killed her. Where was the PCC on that”?

Sir Christopher Meyer:
“The PCC was there all the time. 48 hours after Madeleine disappeared, we said to the parents - through the British Embassy in Washington - that we were here to help. This is what we can do to help you, if you so wish. We cannot be more Catholic than the Pope, more Royalist than the King”.

Andrew Neil:
"But you didn't stop it".

Sir Christopher Meyer:
"We didn't stop it because they did not want us to stop it".

And then they sued the papers.

By the same token, they allowed Amaral to publish and sell 250,000 books before they decided to sue him.

Why through the British Embassy in Washington? Didn't they already have an embassador playing errand boy for the parents? Or couldn't he find the Portuguese embassador because he was playing errand boy?
Or did Sir Christopher not know where Portugal was?
