Can someone please tell me how a Police Department deals with a tonne of discrepancies often found in witness statements, like in the McCann case

Why are they not dealt with? - when they clearly show lies and deceit?
Different words are used.

'Discrepancies' and 'inconsistencies', whether between witnesses, by one witness, or as between the known facts and what the witness says, should always be a matter for police investigation.

The word 'contradiction' is stronger, and implies a direct opposite of what another witness has testified, e.g. in this case, referring to an alleged visit by David Payne to the McCanns' flat at about 6.30pm on Thursday 3 May.

David Payne: "Kate let me in and I visited Kate and the children for about half an hour"

Kate McCann: "He knocked on the door, I was dressed only in a towel, I told him he couldn't come in, he went away after half a minute".

There were at least 20 separate contradictions between their two accounts, enough for the PJ to find their testimony wholly unreliable.

Most people would understand from this that this alleged visit never took place and that in all probability, both parties were lying about it.

If you look at the interim PJ report by Inspector Tavares de Almeida dated 10 September 2007, it is very clear that the PJ were well aware that most of the Tapas9 were telling lies. For example, they sussed in the first 24 hours that Jane Tanner was lying about her alleged 'sighting' of a man carrying a child.

Clearly they did a pretty good job of analysing all the discrepancies in the case, as Goncalo Amaral's book: 'The Truth About a Lie", makes clear


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?"

Amelie Mcann (aged 2): "Maddie's jammies!".
