'MADDIE SPY PLOT' - Scotland Yard planned to 'spy' on the Shropshire family of dead paedophile Raymond Hewlett

Post by Tony Bennett on 11.12.16 1:20

This is the Sun raking up one of its many 'Fake News' stories - the one about paedophile Raymond Hewlett...

...writing a letter on his death-bed...

...to his son Wayne Hewlett...

..from whom he'd been estranged for 20 years...

...a 'mystery man' delivered the letter to him personally, all the way from Aachen in Germany, where Hewlett died...

...the letter explained the identity of the tipsy gypsy gang leader who had organised the abduction of Madeleine...

...but Wayne Hewlett burnt the letter...

...and then couldn't remember the name of the gypsy gang leader...

...but anyway he told the McCann Team about it, who took Hewlett's claims 'very seriously'...

...and then the Sun published a lucrative front-page exclusive all about it on 1 September 2010.

The only new element in the story appears to be a reference to a Belgian paedophile ring - which has faint echoes of the nonsense written about Madeleine McCann by barrister Michael Shrimpton

Itself an 'extrapolation impressionniste' of the Toscano story.

Still selling papers though so what's the difference, right?

Thank you for this reminder may be slightly off topic but just ever so slightly... how odd this echoes the Ben Needham case what with gypsy snatchers  and deceased digger drivers to accidental death and buried in waste land? And still no conclusion on either, makes you wonder who or what script is following which?

MADDIE SPY PLOT
Madeleine McCann investigators plotted to spy on family of dead paedophile suspected in disappearance
Scotland Yard planned surveillance of Raymond Hewlett's ex-wife and children to try and track missing girl

POLICE hunting Madeleine McCann wanted to spy on the family of a dead suspect, The Sun on Sunday can reveal.
The Scotland Yard detectives planned covert surveillance on the ex-wife and children of paedophile Raymond Hewlett.
Detectives in the Madeleine McCann case planned covert surveillance of the family of dead paedo Raymond Hewlett, The Sun can reveal
The pervert — who died of cancer aged 64 in 2010 — lived an hour from the holiday complex where Madeleine disappeared.
He denied involvement but in a deathbed letter to son Wayne said she had been “stolen to order” by a Belgium-based gang.
Detectives wanted to see if they could establish a link between Hewlett’s family and the gang. Two of his six children live in Portugal and ex-wife Mariana lives in Germany. There is no suggestion they were involved with Madeleine’s disappearance.
Hewlett, who died of cancer in 2014, lived close to where Maddie disappeared
In a letter to son Wayne on his deathbed, he said Maddie had been ‘stolen to order’
A source told The Sun on Sunday: “The surveillance was to gather information on Hewlett’s family and their connections.
“They were not suspected — it was more of a fishing expedition to see who they associated with and if any of the ring were in contact.
“The operation needed the involvement of the Portuguese police and this had to be smoothed over as you couldn’t have a covert surveillance team working there without them being informed.
“Hewlett had claimed traffickers took Maddie and the surveillance operation was to see if any of the ring were in contact with members of his family. If she was taken then there is always the possibility she could still be alive.”
A source said Hewlett’s family were not suspects, but that police wanted to see if members of a possible child grooming ring were in contact
Theories that Maddie was abducted have always had great currency with police, and with her parents, who hope this could mean she is still alive
Sex pest Hewlett was jailed three times for crimes against young children in the 70s and 80s.
In 1972 he received a 12-month term after raping a 12-year-old girl he had lured to his car and knocked out with paint stripper. Six years after that he was jailed for four years after attempting to rape a 14-year-old girl. He later received six years for abducting a 14-year-old paper girl at knifepoint.
Last night Raymond Hewlett’s son Wayne, a builder, told The Sun on Sunday he suspected in summer 2015 that he was under surveillance at home in Telford, Shropshire.
He said: “My partner and I thought someone might be watching the house. We would notice a car with somebody in it parked so they could see in.
“If it’s connected to Madeleine it’s the biggest waste of money I’ve heard of. What did they hope to find? I told detectives all I knew years ago.”
Hewlett’s son said that if police were investigating him it was a ‘waste of time’
Madeleine McCann disappeared from a holiday villa in Praia de Luz in 2007
Last week we revealed police working on the “Operation Grange” investigation into Maddie’s disappearance had been given an extra £95,000 to look for a new lead involving a Europe-based child trafficking gang.
Kate and Gerry McCann have always clung to the hope that Madeleine — who would now be 13 — was taken by traffickers from Praia da Luz, Algarve, in 2007 and may still be alive.
The theory she may have ended up in the hands of a child sex ring with connections in Morocco or Belgium has always rated highly with investigators.
Last night a Scotland Yard spokesman said:”Operation Grange are not prepared to discuss any lines of inquiry while the investigation is ongoing.”

I heard that aliens came down from outer space that night and that is why there is no evidence of an abduction. Its certainly a lead that needs to be looked into. Another lead is reporting that a 40 stone pig, with wings on it like a pigeon flew down disappeared. Another solid lead.

I like many others thought this story was no longer going to be in the media when at the start of 2014 they were reduced to digging up animal bones and childrens toys in Portuguese wasteland, because they had already "investigated" all suspects at least 5 times over and found no evidence of any abduction every taking place.
Now this is the second fantastic story in the past week. I really woner why this story is still being dug up and dug up when its clear in the "Truth of the lie" that this is a big game and big con.

I've never heard anything so lame as the stories in recent weeks.
This week it's the dead old geriatric pedo.
A dead geriatric pedo would would have no need for a defense solicitor to question all that evidence that the original investigation uncovered - how very convenient. For who thou?

I just wish Scotland Yard would grow a pair and get a court order for the McCann's and their friends to take a lie detector test, I am not a troll and i they passed I would be the first one to apologise to them even though I do think on their return to the UK in 2007 they should have been charged for leaving their kids alone in that apartment.

It doesn't look like the parents are going to be cleared anytime soon if this is all that's emerging. And if Amaral is successful with the unanimous legal decision from the Portuguese Supreme court then that will confirm that good old Leicester Assistant Chief Constable's words are as true today as they were in 2008: "The McCanns may be innocent but there is (no clear evidence) that eliminates them ."
If the fantasists wish to pursue their trip to fantasy land it's time they funded their trip independently. It's not as if we don't have other vulnerable children who are ALIVE here in the UK who could do with £13 million.
sherlock holmes

If the truth be told, it's one regurgitated story after another. The fact that they were all investigated thoroughly doesn't appear to have registered with the Sun. The only one that was brought to a premature end was the one that all the evidence pointed to - the parents. I'd investigate that one if you wish to discover the truth, even if it's to finally eliminate Mr and Mrs Mccann. It doesn't seem fair on them not to investigate, since it's known how innocent they are, right?
I wonder where the little green men were on May 3rd 2007. We know they have abducted humans of all ages.

oh dear a frenzy of media spinning lines of lies again, chewing and spitting like some uncouth youth! 

Now why would Maddie be stolen to order, why her? 
More specifically when she is no longer a breathing child?

Last night a Scotland Yard spokesman said:”Operation Grange are not prepared to discuss any lines of inquiry while the investigation is ongoing...
which night was this and in particular who is this SY spokesman? 


Outrageous reporting!

Clarifications and corrections

By Daily Mail

Published: 00:00, 12 December 2016 | Updated: 00:00, 12 December 2016

An article on 19 June ('Clement Freud drank with Maddie suspect Robert Murat in Praia da Luz bar – and his local pub was dubbed the Plough and Paedo') reported claims in another newspaper that Robert Murat had known Sir Clement Freud in the Portuguese town where Madeleine McCann went missing. In fact, Mr Murat, who was totally cleared of any involvement in the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, never met or had any connection with the alleged paedophile ex-MP. We are happy to make this clear and apologise to Mr Murat for any suggestion he was involved in wrongdoing.

We would like to make it clear that Mr Murat never met or had any connection with Clement Freud. It was not our intention to suggest any wrong-doing by Mr Murat. We apologise to Mr Murat.

The Sun shines on the righteous( to show up all their sins)

Post by icanseeyou on 14.12.16 7:35

The Sun. 
How this rag is even allowed to exist is a mystery in itself. It has never been anything more than a comic of half naked 'models' half baked 'celebs' and endless lies , usually printed for the Tory party. The disgraceful and illegal goings on between their editor, Thatcher herself and high ranking police officers immediately after Hillsborough should have been it's last day. I know Hillsborough isn't relevant to this site, but the speed and efficiency in which all of the above kicked in to cover things up and implicate so many innocent people should be borne in mind when you are looking to investigate anything that smells of propaganda. As a side note , i see Ben Needham mentioned above here. Richard hall has done an interesting little investigative video if you go to Richplanet.net. 

I also see that the ramblings of Shrimpton are referred to here too . I have a problem with this. I listened to his interview on a Bristol radio show via youtube a few years ago prior to his up and coming  Spycatcher book. I was shocked by the casualness of his delivery when considering the subject matter . I thought he was either crazy or lying. I expected the book to be shelved or the author to be buried. Instead, they took the part concerning her majesty the liar being under threat from terrorists and jailed him. Then followed his protest about being 'broke' after the trial . Broke ? Years has a top drawer solicitor, politician and intelligence offer of the highest rank ? Not buying that. There was also mention of his bipolar ( which has now gone apparently) . Since his release he's made similar rounds talking about similar things but his attitude has changed completely. On Richie Allens show, the host was almost shocked to silence by Shrimpton's backward stepping. So it can be assumed, in my opinion, that he's having to play it all down or it will be more than prison next time. It would follow, if that was the case, that he may not of been lying in the first place . He seemed, in all of his 'sharing' to be blaming everything directly or indirectly on the Germans. It was a bit 'don't mention the war' a la Basil Fawlty in parts . But he extended it to their links with Belgium too . We're now learning about America ( Epstein, Podasta, Clinton) and their child trafficking and paedophilia . I watched a fresh youtube last night( only 70 views and no comment section so it wont get many more) that scared me.I'm not sure it will be online long due to some of the pictures offered up on it. The control, rape, kidnapping and experimenting on children by the German 'psychologists' and nazi officers is out there now - it's  no longer just suspicion . Nor is it a secret now, due to politicians past coming forward , that paedophilia was /is the best weapon of bribery, blackmail and threat to hold over a person or persons in power if you want them( or their government) to play ball . Children are currency. 

Final word on the rag in discussion. It was taken over by  media baron Rupert Murdoch in '69. It was a staunch supporter of Thatcher and major until '97. It then became a staunch supporter of Tony Blair ( prime minister at the time of Maddie's mystery).It then lent support to Blair's successor Gordon Brown ( text buddy of Gerry McCann ). Then David Cameron's Nazi / tory party won the election and the Tories were in power again. The Sun switched back once again to them . That's quite a few prime ministers and still no sign of Maddie . Further investigations, as we now know, revelaed the cosy little nest that the McCann's found themselves in that fateful May . We have A couple of Freuds - Clement and Mathew - the latter is a public relations executive and son of the former, who we now know is a former politician paedophile living close by . Mathew is married to Rupert Murdoch's daughter, Elisabeth. 

The McCanns called upon their new best friends at Rupert Murdoch's rag to issue an open letter to Cameron to 'open up the files on Maddie ' . This serves to reinforce the idea of their innocence( why would they dare ask for the files to be opened otherwise?). It also serves to give Murdoch's lying propaganda tool a much - needed image upgrade. Cameron's response would also make him look like a determined and patriotic fighter for justice or hypocrite who turns his back. Predictably the letter was headlined and Cameron 'found' a few million in the funds of the Home Office for the McCann's 'war fund' ( his term not mine).Thank God Britain wasn't in the middle of another recession.  Of course it would play out as explained here . Cameron, Murdoch and quite a few who mix in the pits know the truth, but know if it came out there would be a social outrage like nothing seen before . 

I watched a very brief rant from Gerry McCann from an online newspaper recently.It only lasted about 50 seconds. But it was worth more than the hours he( and his wife) have put in on TV around the world as it wasn't measured, rehearsed or scripted. He just seemed to forget all of that and the real Mister McCann surfaced. I mention this as I watched the so-called 'embedded confession' that an american psychologist came up with in his interview with Rich Hall and most of which i found flawed; you can't derive anything from scripted Q and A sessions under controlled conditions and you have to take cultural vernacular into account if using spoken words only to use as evidence . In the rant i mention he says one thing in it that speaks volumes and , how i read it anyway, he is letting slip what's been hidden since 2007.And The Sun is only one small part of that. When i learn how to begin a thread here i'll post it . 
In the meantime..here's some stuff on what i've just discussed...

I'll post the link here. 
Bear in mind what i referred to Re Press power over how events are reported or created. We remember Robert Maxwell's dirty deeds before he was accidentally thrown over the side of his yacht by his Mossad friends. His daughter- Ghislaine- seems to appear with no end of suspicious characters ( Prince Andrew, Epstein etc).Netanyahu has dirty hands too.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1363247/Unsavoury-association-How-Robert-Maxwells-daughter-procured-young-girls-Prince-Andrews-billionaire-friend.html


The media is owned by 6 people.All of it. A very powerful elite of jewish and / or crypto jewish people .And before i'm attacked as anti this or anti that, I'm talking about the ruling Zionist jewish, not jewish in general. Britain and America both made big deals and photo ops of signing their 'friends of Israel' pledges.And once that's done , Israel become immune to everything on the global stage. That's another story....

What i noted, and mentioned above, was that Gerry McCann talks on camera to the TV puppet and the conversation is recreated beneath it minus the key accusation about who he suggests are 'at the centre of all this' . It makes me think that what happened to his daughter is known by our politicians and media elite and Gerry McCann either knows it too or suspects that they do and is pushing their buttons. Is all the 'funding' that's been pushed his way hush money ? Is he annoyed that the Prime Minister seems to be awaiting his orders from the press big boys ? Does he know who Rupert Murdoch is in a partnership with outside of the media ? A Rothschild ( our parliaments and banks bosses ) ?

Watch the interview and read the transcript.

Gerry McCann grilled by BBC Breakfast's Louise Minchin as viewers ask 'where's your Maddie appeal?'

Maddie McCanns' father Gerry was interviewed by the BBC Breakfast team about his open letter to the Prime Minister regarding The Leveson Inquiry

ByDanny Walker

Updated15:34, 6 APR 2016

Gerry McCann was grilled by BBC Breakfast's Louise Minchin earlier today, following an open letter to Prime Minister David Cameron about The Leveson Inquiry.
The McCanns and victims of the hacking scandal signed an open letter to Cameron addressing the fact that a key part of the Royal Charter agreement, introduced after the 2012 findings of The Leveson Enquiry, has been approved by Parliament but has not yet come into law.
McCann was adamant that if nothing is done then the Inquiry would have been a "waste of time".

Meanwhile, viewers took to Twitter to ask why Gerry wasn't appealing for his daughter who went missing in 2007.

When asked about why he was one of the signatories of the open letter, he said that the proposed law for reforms was 'never optional'.
He said: "I think it's about exasperation really, Section 40 isn't optional. It was never intended to be optional and there is no reason why the Government are delaying.
"We have corresponded with the Prime Minister privately and we have spoken to the Culture Secretary [The Rt Hon John Whittingdale MP] on two separate occasions and have been dismayed by his attitude.
"The Prime Minister promised us that the victims would remain at the centre of the Leveson reforms and we feel that our views have been pushed aside."

Just over four years ago the McCanns met the Prime Minister and got a personal assurance that press regulators would have 'real teeth'.
The Government has decided to postpone section 40.
McCann added: "The press are always going to say that they are at a disadvantage. They already have the odds stacked in their favour.
"We're just asking for them all to sign up to this low-cost arbitration."
BBC Breakfast's Louise Minchin then pressed McCann about the reforms and the 'enormous amount of money spent on regulation'.
"I don't see any front page apologies... we need proper independent self-regulation."
Gerry McCann then stressed that if these minimum requirements weren't met then The Leveson Inquiry was a "waste of time".

Meanwhile, viewers on Twitter only had one question on their mind.

One viewer was angry McCann was on morning television and penned: "Gerry #McCann doing the rounds on TV & media, whining & moaning. Not one appeal to Maddie"

When McCann started trending on Twitter, another added: "It's shocking how much abuse Gerry McCann gets online, shocking."
