WHAT ABOUT THOSE SECURITY BLINDS ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE PATIO KATE AND GERRY?

Post by Get'emGonçalo on 28.08.15 18:09

Posted by Viv on her blog:

Here the police are clearly asking this witness who had so recently stayed in the apt some very pertinent questions to the investigation and the claims of Kate and Gerry McCann.  

The security to that particular apartment was poor, the exterior light did not even work.  They wanted the shutter that went over the outside of the patio doors to the rear fixed immediately because they could see that would be a serious security issue, and it was!   In their initial statements Kate claims the patio door at the rear was left open to facilitate checking of the children, she makes no mention of what happened about the security blind on the outside of those doors.  She makes no mention of the children being able to fall ten feet or so down into the garden below if they had exited those doors and walked out onto the patio.   Madeleine was nearly four, the twins were two years and three months, in my experience all of these children would have been able to get out of their cots/beds and even the apartment, if what the McCanns claim is actually true.  There is no handle on the exterior of the patio door.  It would have to have been left ajar to be able to open it from the outside as Mat and Gerry demonstrated on the Channel 4 documentary, then just grabbing and sliding it further back to open sufficient to walk through.  It is clearly not meant to be used as an exterior entrance to the apartment, security blinds are provided.  Did the McCanns feel leaving their children was so important they could just forget their security in this way?  In his initial statement, Gerry McCann claims they both checked the children by going around to the front of the apartment, using their front door key.  The normal way to enter the apartment by the intended secure and locked door.  But in his further grilling, 6 days later on 10 May, he claims he was quite mistaken about that.  He actually claims that he does not remember if he locked the front door and that he was wrong, he and Kate did not use the front door as he had previously claimed, the very next day after Maddie's disappearance, oh no, now he decides they used the rear patio door as the more cunning Kate had originally stated.    Would Gerry not have been absolutely certain which door they used, the very next day, and would he not have been wanting to make sure he gave the police very accurate information to assist them in working out how anyone could have gotten into the apartment and abducted Madeleine as they so adamantly claimed?  

Do the McCanns seriously expect us to believe they just ignored the security shutter on the rear patio door and left it up and the patio door open every night so they could check their kids?   Why was Kate telling Mr Woolfall that Maddie likely just wandered off but then denying it to the police and in her first interview with Jane Hill?  When anyone looks at these facts alone, how could they seriously believe the McCanns to be innocent in the disappearance of Madeleine.  The contradictory and astounding lies and admitted serious negligence this couple were telling the police from the very outset?  

The scent of blood was clearly noted by the dogs in apartment 5a.  The police are here wanting to see if there is another source for that blood smell, Ms Hughes says her partner may have cut himself shaving but she does not remember this.  In his rogatory, Martin Grime indicates that Keela purely locates blood, Eddie will locate corpses and as part of that process may also smell human blood.  It is a myth to just keep on insisting he smelt dead body, he may have done, but it is just as likely he smelt what Keela could smell, blood, particularly given he was mainly indicated in the exact same spot as Keela and where traces of blood were indeed found but which did not provide a good match to Madeleine's.  I remain upset that ghoulish people continue to deny this child her human rights to be considered a missing person until such time as there is compelling evidence of her death.  At this time, so far as the information within the public domain is concerned, there is no such compelling evidence of her death in that apartment.  I remain convinced that it is wholly wrong to just right this child off as dead when there is the slightest chance she may still be alive.  It is simply not clear what the McCanns did with her, other than they were involved in lying about her disappearance and there is only one reason they would do that.  

The police then go on to address the issue of whether there were thieves operating in the area, i.e. anyone who on the offchance may have noted there was more on offer to steal from the McCanns apartment than mere electronic gadgets and cash.  She answers this very firmly in the negative and yet, the McCanns have pursued a merciless campaign of insisting the Algarve is dangerous for children, paedophiles in the area are likely to snatch your child.  This has clearly had a serious negative impact upon peoples livelihoods, from the humblest cleaner who would obviously need that job, thanks to Kate and Gerry, as we saw on film, they lost them.  Meanwhile they are not content with fleecing the public/the rich with donations of about £2M, oh no, they then embark on a sue fest to amass yet more cash because people have the nerve to suggest they were involved.  I am going to continue to do more than suggest, they were involved, but I would not be so foolish as to insist I know exactly what they did with her.  I may have evidence of their lies and obvious involvement, but disposing of her dead body? No way can anyone sensibly make this  claim.  If you look at the information that Leicester Police intend to keep confidential whilst they continue to investigate "those behind the disappearance of Madeleine McCann" it is clear they are by no means certain they are looking for a dead Madeleine.  They have statistics of "sightings", intelligence from various agencies, correspondence with the Serious and Organised Crime Agency.  This was a serious and organised crime against little Maddie, organised by her own parents.  

I hope that one day they reap the rewards of the wickedness they have demonstrated to all three of their little children, but most especially little Madeleine whose fate at their hands, we simply do not know, but must surely by now, fear the very worst.  

5A OCCUPANT 29 APRIL 08



40 to 41 Witness statement of June Hughes (former holidayer in Apartment 5 A) 2008.04.29

05-CARTAS ROGATORIA 5 Pages 40 to 41

LEICESTERSHIRE POLICE SQUAD

WITNESS TESTIMONY OF JUNE HUGHES

Occupation: Surgical Assistant



This statement, consisting of three pages, each signed by me, is true to the best of my knowledge and belief and I make it knowing that, if it is tendered in evidence, I shall be liable to prosecution if I have willfully states in it anything I know to be false or do not believe to be true.



Date: 29 April 2008

Signature:



I am the above referenced person and live at the address previously given to this police.



On the 14th of April of 2007 my partner Carlo A'AMROSIO and I were on holiday in Praia da Luz, Portugal. We have booked a reservation with Thomas Cook and were to stay in the Mark Warner Ocean Club resort.



Carlo and I travelled to the Glasgow airport directly to Faro.

When we arrived at the resort, we were given apartment 5A. There were still cleaning personnel in there when we arrived. They allowed us to enter. We checked and realized that we had not been given a key to the apartment and Carlo went to the reception to collect one.



I found the apartment very good. We arrived on Saturday and this night noticed that the blinds on the patio side door which gave way to the pool zone did not close. It appeared that someone had lifted them too much and the mechanism did not dislodge in order to shut them (page1). We reported this abnormality to the reception that same night. We reported this immediately because we found that the apartment could be at risk if it was not possible to close the door blinds. The apartment was also vulnerable for the fact that the entryway light (side of the street) was hanging and did not function. This made the entryway very dark. It was off from the street with a small parking zone between the street and the apartment.



Even though we communicated this issue of the blind, we did not expect them to rapidly address the issue. We were surprised when on Sunday morning a functionary came to fix the blind. The patio door blind was on the outside of the patio door. We used the principal entrance (next to the street) and would lock the patio door from the interior.



During our stay I do not remember having cut or hurt myself. It is possible that Carlo cut himself whilst shaving but I don't remember this.



Nothing was taken from our apartment and I did not notice anything suspect during our stay. I noticed that the gardeners would work on the garden close to the apartment 'pool-side 'three mornings (page 2) during our stay. The cleaning personnel would come very day.



I remember that the key to the apartment was a bit unusual. It was round and with cut segments. We noticed that the cleaning personnel knocked on the door once and would then enter in the apartment. In this sequence, we left the door always closed with the key in the lock. The next morning, the cleaning woman knocked on the door and entered normally independent of the door being locked with the key in the interior of the lock.



As far as I recall, the living woman sofa (to the right of the entry across the patio door) was slightly removed from the wall, around 60 cm.



We were not accompanied by children to Praia da Luz but noticed that the children seemed to have free access to the restaurant and were always very welcome. We would normally eat in different restaurants when we holidayed but would breakfast in the apartment and if I am not mistaken, lunched in our apartment.



We slept in the principal room where the blind was initially broken. We never took any food in the Tapas Bar. I do not know Gerry or Kate McCann and only heard of them after their daughter went missing. We returned on the 21st of April of 2007.



This statement is made by me and is truthful in accordance with my understanding.

Of interest here also, the police are seemingly addressing the question of the positioning of the sofa, given the dogs clearly did indicate for blood immediately behind it.

Ms Hughes states it was placeda about 60 cm or two feet for non decimal people away from the wall. Is that enough of a gap for a small child to fall into and as Goncalo feels well yes it is. But the McCanns simply did not have sufficient time to properly dispose of her body and effect a clean up that night prior to raising the alarm.

I find the suggestion that Gerry McCann would have walked through the streets with his dead daughter and hid her on the beach, then called in the police and demanded tracker dogs simply absurd.

The police are also gaining evidence within the UK from this woman that there is no reason why the children could not have eaten with their parents at restaurants, as she says, children were always welcome, but not it would seem to Kate and Gerry McCann, who wanted to fill their days playing sport wit their kids dumped in the creche and their nights eating without them, with their kids dumped in bed and left in an apartment, they say, where they ignore locks and security doors even. What vile people!

The McCanns story was so utterly incredible and contradictory, it can be seen they even felt obliged to start telling immediate lies to their friends:



Jon Corner was quoted in the Daily Telegraph of 07 May 2007:

'Jon Corner, a close friend of Mrs McCann and godparent of the twins, said she telephoned him in the middle of the night distraught.

He said: "She just blurted out that Madeleine had been abducted. She told me, 'They have broken the shutter on the window and taken my little girl.'

"They had left the apartment locked while they were having their meal, but when they went back the last time they saw the damage."


But of course, as the first attending GNR guards noted, there was absolutely no sign of any kidnapping, no damage, no breakin, hence they assumed Maddie just wandered off and did not seal the flat immediately as a crime scene.

An inside job, well too right it was!

So Viv

Are you suggesting Carlo did, in fact, cut himself shaving and then started cartwheeling all over the apartment, continuing with some gymnastics on the verandah and in the garden.

Then he put Kate's clothes on, smeared his chin all over the Renault and, as an encore, wiped his still bleeding face with Cuddle Cat and then disposed of same in the very villa the McCanns would move to after leaving 5A?

All shutters were down. Including those of the patio doors.

‘The cleaning personnel would come (e)very day.’
 
This is pretty standard practice in holiday apartments and rooms, (with maybe a day off on Sundays), straightening out the sheets and a quick sweep around, yet two weeks later, according to the bewk, the Mc’s only had maids every other day.
 
‘Our apartment was cleaned on the Monday and Wednesday (another perk) by a middle-aged Portuguese lady. ‘
 
This ‘explains away’ why the bed by the window was unkempt in the PJ photos taken on Thursday night, after KM ‘slept in it on the Wednesday night’, but which of these routines is correct I wonder and how does the cleaning/tidying up actually tie in with the bed photos?


The cleaner did state that one of the cots was in the parents room, but I don't remember any confirmation that she only visited every other day, or what tasks she carried out.

……………………………………
 
Statement of Maria Julia Serafim da Silva
5As cleaner
Date/Time: 2007/05/07 16H45
Cleaner
 
 ‘With respect to her activities performed directly in the apartment, she declares that the last time she entered the apartment was on the Wednesday prior to the events, specifically on the 2nd of May, when she cleaned the apartment. When questioned, she declares that as opposed to what is established, on Thursday the 3rd and due to other chores, she did not have time to collect the garbage bags.
 
On the following Friday, the day after the child disappeared, she states that due to police formalities, she did not clean apartment A.’
 
http://www.mccannpjfiles.co.uk/PJ/5A_CLEANER.htm

.....................................
 
So, before they arrived on Saturday, Wednesday, 'didn't have time' Thursday, couldn't on Friday. Was she supposed to clean every day?
 
What days was she supposed to enter the apartment, to do what? What did she actually do?
 
What does she mean by ‘as opposed to what is established’?
 
Was she told not to bother cleaning/tidying on the Thursday? If so, who by? Why the need to say she did not have time to collect the garbage bags on the Thursday? Was there two days worth of rubbish in the flat on Friday? (If bins not emptied for two days, this should have left even more DNA evidence, wipes, tissues, crisp packets, biscuit wrappers etc. which of course could not be found in the apartment.) Had the bins been emptied by someone else?
 
Was she ever interviewed again?

I did not realise that there is no handle on the exterior of the patio doors.

So, not only did the McCanns leave the patio door entrance to the apartment unlocked, they also had to leave the patio door slightly ajar to allow the so-called checking arrangements to work.

So, just to clarify for myself, there are 3 young under 4 year old children in an apartment and the parents actually leave one of the doors to the apartment open whilst they spend the evening eating out.

It has been generally acknowledged that the McCanns left the apartment unlocked, but I'm not sure it has been widely made public that they also had to leave the patio door ajar in order for the 'checking' to occur.

Within the bounds of responsible parenting? What idiot would ever make that claim in public!

Having to change their statements during the second formal interview and state that they actually entered the apartment via the patio doors and not the front door, has really created so many other problems for them.

They are stating that those were the arrangements.It is dangerous, reckless and negligent.

Sliding mechanism indicates to me that the patio doors could be closed from the outside even if not locked.  Moot point anyway IMO, I'm less than convinced that the McCanns, or any of the group, ever left their doors unlocked for easy access when they were out wining and dining - the mere thought flies in the face of all reason.  I think the story was concocted to reinforce the claimed abduction theory.

I mean - really - what right minded parent would leave their child/ren alone in a strange environment with open doors?  You couldn't make it up could you - oh but wait a minute - they did didn't they?
