madeleine by KATE MCCANN - published April 2011

The directors of the company are Michael Linnett, Edward Smethurst, Jon Corner, Kate and Gerry McCann and Kate’s uncle, Brian Kennedy. Once Madeleine has been found the fund will be used to assist searches for other missing children worldwide.

All quiet on the western front.  They say no news is good news but sometimes I think it's more a case of the calm before the storm - there is always a hurricane lurking on the horizon.

Brexit followed by the general election followed by the threat of war between the US of A and Iran followed by Greta Thunberg followed by coronovirus.  It's put the McCanns well and truly in the shade .... but for how long?

As we speak I'm in no doubt Olive Oyl of the Daily Tablet is concocting tales of woe and her counterpart Tom Towers, digging up something from the archives to cobble together for an exclusive.

The 'official' (as they call it) Find Madeleine website has come to a grinding halt since the tenth anniversary of Madeleine McCann's disappearance.  Scant updates to commemorate a specific event every now and then but nothing informative.  Indeed, they are still promoting the same sightings of the 'abductor', seen by Jane Tanner and the Smith family on the night of 3rd May 2007 - allegedly, that have long since been debunked by the Portuguese and British police and scrutinized to the ninth degree by CMOMM members!

What does next week have in store I wonder slipped in some seedy tabloid between the latest coronavirus death rate and other miscellaneous gossip.

I await with pregnant anticipation - could it be the right time to announce another stay of execution for Operation Grange?

Try looking at Missing People website which is claiming to be the only charity dedicated to bringing missing children and families back together.

Jim Gamble has removed himself from a business in child protection. No more the Table Mountain visual. Gone is the podium stance betwixt and between the flags of GB and USA.

Jim is now doing Ireland.

There was a big issue about this Ernie Allen and NCMEC where the children were not really missing but had been taken abroad with a parent who had custody and was probably resident in the country to which they had returned.

He was guilty of a large number of false child abduction claims but somehow seems to have got away with it.

That's just the thing. The majority of cases involving missing children are the result of a parental dispute and/or involvement.

Funny that innit?

I think the McCanns man-made sightings of potential abductors can be safely buried. Tannerman was excluded by ex-Met Police officer Andy Redwood - thank you Andy but what about the notorious Smithman who mirrored the Tannerman? Is he/she still public enemy number one or was he buried along with the Tannerman?

If so, someone should tell the official Find Madeleine Campaign webmaster because they seem to still be labouring under the misapprehension that he/she is out there and findable.

So, that's the elephant out of the room - what next?

How about wondering why it is so important to team McCann for the world to focus on stranger abduction and the night of Thursday 3rd May 2007.

Smoke and mirrors perhaps?

The entire story line depends on the belief that Madeleine McCann disappeared just before 22:00h on 3rd May 2007.

Do you believe? I don't!

And PACT, which was set up by a woman who had legal custody in the UK, but sent the children to stay with her German husband who refused to send them back.
She then married Sir Whatnot Thingie and became Lady Thingie, took huge amounts from her Charity, which did approximately nothing, and has now been given a peerage, and so is Baroness Thingie.

As we said all those years ago, this was a simple case of Conflict of Laws, which lawyers call Public International.
Nothing to do with Abduction, Charity, Missing children or any other nonsense.

As a matter of record the children are now both doctors in Germany, as was the husband, and although they have been in touch with their mother, they have not 'returned' to the UK to live with her, - or in fact to be anywhere near her.

About the "For as long as it takes" photo..Didn't CMOMM discuss the head-neck-shoulders proportions of the Madeleine in this photo. And the hair length etc.? Or did I read it in a book or record of the case? The fact that the McCanns used it for the update does not prove that the photo is authentic. It is, indeed, a strange photo.

Apparently the Government is offering financial assistance to charities.  It will be interesting how Missing People apply for assistance and how much is granted. 

Of course they might choose to not apply and donate the gross salary paid to one employee.

The directors of the company are Brian Kennedy, Michael Linnett, Edward Smethurst, Jon Corner, Kate McCann & Gerry McCann. They have appropriate legal, business and charitable experience. An experienced Fund Administrator has been appointed to ensure the highest standards of transparency and accountability. This should enable the Directors to maintain an appropriate governance distance in the day-to-day operations of the Fund.

Fund Objectives

The full objects of the Fund are:

   To procure that Madeleine's abduction is thoroughly investigated and that her abductors, as well as those who played or play any part in assisting them, are identified and brought to justice; and
   To provide support, including financial assistance, to Madeleine's family.

If the above objects are fulfilled then the objects of the Foundation shall be to pursue such purposes in similar cases arising in the United Kingdom, Portugal or elsewhere.

Fund Raising

We thank you for your interest in fund raising to support Madeleine's fund. Many donations have resulted from a variety of fund raising events.

These events have further highlighted Madeleine's plight as well as bringing many people together to have fun whilst working towards one common goal.

We would be grateful if you are considering fund raising that you do not refer to Madeleine's fund as a registered charity as it is not. If you are embarking on a type fund raising which may carry an element of risk you may wish to consider your position regarding insurance cover. If you require further information please refer to:

For what worth (none probably!) the 'confirmation statement' was duly filed in good time on 15th May (due by end of the month).

Completely pointless document in my view, which gives absolutely no information of any use to anyone.

Leaving no stones unturned.   How many stones are left after all this time and absolutely nothing despite the millions of taxpayers money both in Portugal and UK.  Not to mention the private eyes etc.?

If there was an abduction hoax, and a subsequent cunning cover-up (as some suggest there was), then here we surely have the core members of it.

Jon Corner, ready with hundreds of digital photos of Madeleine as soon as the alarm went off at around 10pm on 3 May 2007; by his own account he was a 'regular visitor' to Praia da Luz; his daughter Chloe was a Facebook Friend of Catriona Baker in 2006 and possibly before; he featured in the highly misleading BBC Panorama programme of 19 November 2007; and he had possession of the disturbing 'Make-Up Photo' of Madeleine, possibly taken on Sunday 29 April, which he chose to show in a 2-minute video he produced for the second anniversary of Madeleine's reported disappearance

Brian Kennedy mastermind of the Find Madeleine private search for Madeleine McCann, employed in succession:

Gary Hagland, sci-fi addict who says aliens once took him to Saturn, but also had the advantage of being qualified in money-laundering regulations

Francisco Marco, boss of Metodo 3, and his acolytes Antonio Giminez Raso (spent 4 years in jail on remand on serious drugs offences and corruption charges) and Julian Peribanez


Kevin Halligen (or was it Richard Powell?), spent 4 years in jail on serious fraud charges

Henri Exton, former Head of Covert Intelligence at MI5, who did the Smiths' efits (or, actually, did he?) and then

Dave Edgar and Arthur Cowley, of the fake investigations company ALPHAIG, run from a cottage on Halkyn Mountain, Wales 

Edward Smethurst, former in-house lawyer for Brian Kennedy's Latium Group; has holidayed in Praia da Luz every year since 1999, and has been the McCanns' 'Co-ordinating Lawyer' since the get-go - and

The McCanns.

What secrets, I wonder, will be revealed about them all on the coming Day of Judgment?

____________________

Dr Martin Roberts: "The evidence is that these are the pjyamas Madeleine wore on holiday in Praia da Luz. They were photographed and the photo handed to a press agency, who released it on 8 May, as the search for Madeleine continued. The McCanns held up these same pyjamas at two press conferences on 5 & 7June 2007. How could Madeleine have been abducted?"

Tony,

The Brian Kennedy listed as company director is Kate McCann's uncle.  Not the multi-millionaire who masterminded the campaign..

Of that list at least one comes out of it well.
Julian Peribañez who wrote the book Cortina de Humo (The Smokescreen)
revealing how M3 had systematically defrauded the "Fund" over several years,
but raising the important question – Why one of the leading firms of Solicitors, BWB,
AND a leading firm of Accountants, HaysMc, both well used to dealing with Charity accounts
had not only failed even to notice what was going on under their noses, had apparently both
neglected to do proper "Due Diligence" 
and also apparently failed or neglected to make any moves at all
towards recovering the monies allegedly defrauded.

Of that entire list, he seems to be the only one to have told the truth.
