I've moved your post ^^^ here from the  'EXCLUSIVE: Gerry McCann to open up about his mental health struggles in 'honest, personal and sometimes painful' Radio 4 interview' thread.

As can be seen up-page, Susan Moyes was interviewed on BBC radio where she had this to say..

SM: Sure. We went out for a meal about 7 o'clock, down in the town, we walked back about 9 o'clock, round past, errm... the... the church, round past the supermarket, back to the apartment, went out on the balcony about quarter past nine - everywhere was peaceful, everywhere was lovely - we then went to bed.

No indication as to who went out on the balcony, why and for how long.  In various press reports there were different versions of who, why and when.  There is no proof of any of this.  My only question is why Susan Moyes agreed to an interview with BBC RADIO - it served no purpose.  It was however only a matter of days before Pamela Fenn gave her only formal witness statement to the police.

Commencing November 2007, building momentum into December 2007 and gradually the impact diminishing through to January 2008 - it was certainly a very eventful period for Team McCann and it would appear a very important period of time for their long-term strategy, their campaign, their wider agenda.

I'd like to have been a fly on the wall of the Rothley Court Hotel meeting as this was clearly the hub of the imminent hivernal discontent.  Without knowing the detail, one thing appears to be true - Brian Kennedy, the double glazing tycoon, was the ring leader.  At least he was the one with the money to finance the team's escapades and I'd imagine, the influence.

The period of time was used constructively, to rally around willing participants (greasy palm variety) to provide false evidence of useful sightings to take the pressure off poor old Jane Tanner and her phantom abductor, so conveniently dismissed by the former DCI Andy Redwood during the Crimewatch 2013 Madeleine McCann Special.  What better than a variety of sightings, similar in appearance and location, to throw the scent off the Morpheus created by Ms Tanner and friends.

Events from the past, a combination of truth and fabrication, were used to advantage - not only to confuse an already umbrageous investigation but also to fool the public, the spectator into believing the unevidenced claim of stranger abduction.  Morpheus had multiple facets thanks to the greasy palmed curious witnesses who sprang forth to assist the floundering investigation - some might say to pervert the course of justice, nonetheless a very productive exercise still doing the rounds to this very day.

The blueprint..

Door-to-door inquiries appeared to have been delayed and haphazard. If nobody was at home, too bad: as far as I could tell they didn’t get a second visit. Many of the witness statements looked extremely vague and brief, crying out for what seemed blindingly obvious and essential questions to be asked and answered. Those made by the Ocean Club staff in particular were very sketchy, even allowing for the fact that almost 130 employees were interviewed in the space of just a few days. We have discovered since that there were staff who were not interviewed at all.

Night after night, I read of depraved individuals, British paedophiles, Portuguese paedophiles, Spanish, Dutch and German paedophiles, and of the horrific crimes they’d committed. The police went to visit some of them, looked around their apartments and recorded merely, ‘No sign of the minor.’ Was that enough to eliminate these vile characters from the inquiry? If more had been done, there was certainly nothing in the files about it. No description, no photograph, no alibi, no DNA. Just ‘No sign of the minor.’

A late night. Depressing reading. So many child molesters! Dear God, please don’t let this have been what’s happened to Madeleine. Please, God.

No wonder Team McCann was masterminded to produce new witnesses and sightings after the McCanns speedy departure from Portugal in September 2007.  Brian Kennedy the financier - who called on him to sell his soul to the devil, Clarence Mitchell perhaps who purposely and willingly resigned from a lucrative position with the British government to work for Team McCann full-time? 

Dastardly deeds call for desperate measures.

After the initial mayhem, when witnesses were routinely interviewed by PJ officers, suddenly new information springs forth - alternative witness statements and previously unknown or embellished sightings are reported.  Not from official sources, like the Portuguese investigative team but by the alternative unofficial tour de force - Team McCann.

Makes you think doesn't it?

Bearing False Witness - Page 2 Empty Apartment No.5, Pennington Way

Post by Verdi on 08.01.19 0:44

Charlotte Pennington stands out from all the other Ocean Club child care workers for a number of reasons.  To start, she was a late arrival, said to have been on the same flight from the UK as some of the McCann friends - she was not initially listed amongst the child care workers for the summer season, instead later after her arrival at the same time as the McCann group.  The reason for this has never been explained.

Following the alleged disappearance of Madeleine McCann, Charlotte Pennington was not backward in coming forward as regards media interviews and television appearances - indeed she featured quite prominently in the 'Dispatches' documentary on 18th October 2007 (that month again)..

Charlotte Pennington is shown in three separate clips talking about the events of 03 May 2007:
 
Transcription 1:
 
'They were a very social group and they seemed all to be really respectful, nice, loving parents. Madeleine, I found out to be quite bright... errm, quite shy... errm, very sweet, very beautiful girl.
 
On May the third, it was just Madeleine I was reading a story to. I later saw them around lunchtime. That's the last time I saw them together as a family.'
 
Transcription 2:
 
'I was working that night at something called 'Drop-in Creche'. We had one child left and... errm, the mother came in, picked up the child and just mentioned 'Hang on a minute, I've just seen a guy who's run past me, who seemed really distressed and I recognised him as being a guest at Mark Warner, but he was shouting out something like 'Maddie' or 'Abbey' or 'Gabby'.'
 
Transcription 3:
 
'I went straight to the apartment. I sort of walked in, did a quick scan around and been told 'No, no. She's not here, she's not here'.
 
Kate McCann was outside and she was very distressed. She was saying things like 'They've taken her' and 'She's gone' and, you know, 'Where is she? Where is she?'
 
She was crying and there were tears down her face and it was absolutely heartbreaking to see.'
....................

Ocean Club nanny Charlotte Pennington claimed to be a key witness in the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

Nigel Moore of the now defunct mccannfiles.com but kindly hosted by pamalam at gerrymccannsblog, published this excellent exposé of Charlotte Pennington..

Where was Charlotte Pennington?

 
Nigel Moore
Monday 30 June 2008
 
The question: 'Where was Charlotte Pennington when Madeleine was reported missing?' would appear to be one of the few questions surrounding the case that can boast a straightforward answer.
 
In a case that has become characterised by the frustratingly unsatisfactory quotes of unnamed friends and sources, Ms Pennington has afforded us the rare luxury of being able to listen to her own words from her own mouth - at least until the Dispatches documentary 'Searching for Madeleine' was removed from YouTube and Channel 4's own 4oD service.
 
On that documentary, Ms Pennington recounted the following story: "I was working that night at something called 'Drop-in Creche'. We had one child left and... errm, the mother came in, picked up the child and just mentioned 'Hang on a minute, I've just seen a guy who's run past me, who seemed really distressed and I recognised him as being a guest at Mark Warner, but he was shouting out something like 'Maddie' or 'Abbey' or 'Gabby'."
 
She then continues: "I went straight to the apartment. I sort of walked in, did a quick scan around and been told 'No, no. She's not here, she's not here'.
 
"Kate McCann was outside and she was very distressed. She was saying things like 'They've taken her' and 'She's gone' and, you know, 'Where is she? Where is she?'
 
"She was crying and there were tears down her face and it was absolutely heartbreaking to see."
 
So, in Ms Pennington's own words, her movements would appear to be crystal clear and unequicocal. End of story.
 
Yet, in Danny Collins recently released book 'Vanished' a completely different picture is painted. We are used to reading slight variations of stories connected to the case, to the point where double-vision is a regular occurence, but we are less used to somebodies movements being directly and confidently contradicted in print.
 
So what does Mr Collins say about Ms Pennington's movements and what is the significance of them, if true?
 
Mr Collins states that rather than being in the communal 'Drop-in creche', Ms Pennington was actually babysitting in a 'nearby apartment' and was brought to the McCanns' apartment by the sound of Kate McCanns' screams from the balcony of apartment 5A.
 
He claims that Ms Pennington was the first person at the scene and that she told police that Kate 'clutched at her' and 'sobbed in panic as she tried to answer the young childminder's questions'.
 
Whilst Ms Pennington does indeed describe the frenzied state of Kate McCann, she does not mention the undoubted importance and significance of being the first person to arrive at the scene.
 
However, if Ms Pennington's own account is true then it would have been impossible for her to have been the first person at the scene as the incident she describes clearly indicates that the alarm had been raised some time before she was made aware of it.
 
She does state in the Daily Mail article of 25 September 2007 that "I was in the apartment less than five minutes after they found that Madeleine had gone".
 
However, that would seem unlikely given the fact that after Kate had reportedly discovered Madeleine missing she would have had to inform the rest of the group by returning to the Tapas bar; allowed time for a further search of the apartment by Gerry and their friends; allowed time to consider what to do; allowed time for Gerry to decide to go out onto the streets and then do it; allowed time for the woman to hear him and later report what she had heard to Pennington and then time for Pennington to ascertain which apartment was involved, gather herself and then actually reach the apartment. It would seem unlikely that that whole process would have taken 'less than five minutes'.
 
In the same article, Ms Pennington further describes how: "We knew that one of the other nanny's charges was called Maddie. We told the head of department what had happened and she took us straight to the apartment.
 
"There were no children in the room. The twins had been taken out already, I think by one of the McCanns' friends."
 
Leaving aside discussion around the distrubing suggestion that the twins were not in the apartment at that time (Where were they and why and how did they return by the time the GNR arrived?), Ms Pennington states that she attended the McCanns apartment with her head of department - yet again clearly suggesting that she wasn't the first person on the scene.
 
So, who to believe? Ms Pennington herself or the words of a Spanish-based veteran investigative journalist? Faced with such a choice the natural inclination would surely be to side with the individual who was actually there and witnessed it. Yet, the level of detail in Collins text suggests his knowledge extends beyond that of a blindfold, a stick and a piñata.
 
Mr Collins also has something very significant to say about the occupation of the apartments by the McCanns and the Tapas Seven.
 
Mr Collins states that the McCanns were in apartment 5A, as we all know, but that Jane Tanner and Russell O'Brien were next door in apartment 5B. This appears to directly contradict Clarence Mitchell's statement that Rachael Oldfield was next door on the evening that Madeleine is alleged to have been left crying, unattended.
 
What Mr Mitchell actually said was: "Equally, one of the friends, Rachael Oldfield, was in the apartment next door in a bedroom adjacent to the wall where Madeleine was in her bedroom and she heard no crying at all all night."
 
The natural assumption from Mr Mitchell's statement is that Rachael Oldfield was 'in the apartment next door' because that was her apartment. After all, what would she be doing in somebody elses bedroom, on her own, whilst all the other members of the holidaying party were out enjoying themselves? All night.
 
Of course, making assumptions is a dangerous thing to do. But it does seem peculiar that Mr Mitchell has specifically identified Rachael Oldfield - why not simply say that the Oldfield's were next door and heard nothing? If she heard nothing all night, then she must have been there all night. If so, where was her husband?
 
If Mrs Oldfield was alone, it would suggest she was alone for a reason. After all, we have been told, first hand by Kate, that they were operating a system. She said: "We all knew what we had to do, what we would do and.. you know, it worked as a system we had going and it just seemed totally right somehow".
 
Could it be that Mrs Oldfield was babysitting? That the 'system' involved one member of the group babysitting all the children? There is, it must be stated, no evidence to suggest this is the case but, at one point, there were curious reports of all the children sharing the McCanns' apartment on the night of 3rd May. But was this true or just another flight of fancy?
 
Mr Collins states that Mark Warner only rented out the ground floor apartments and that the holidaying group were all based on that floor, contradicting previous reports that the Payne's were located on the floor above. Collins says that the Payne's were 'further down the walkway' and that the Oldfield's were based the furthest away from the McCanns' apartment.
 
So what significance does this have to the whereabouts of Charlotte Pennington on that evening? Possibly, a great deal.
 
Mr Collins tells us that Ms Pennington was babysitting in a 'nearby apartment' when she heard the screams of Kate McCann. He tells us that Mark Warner only rented the ground floor apartments and so, therefore, we are compelled to ask: Was Ms Pennington babysitting for one of the Tapas group and, if so, which one?
 
If we are to believe reports, the Payne's were the only couple to own and use a working baby-monitoring device, so would therefore have had no need of a babysitter. The Oldfield's were the furthest away from the McCanns apartment and it would therefore seem very unlikely that Ms Pennington could have heard the screams of Kate, if she was babysitting inside the Oldfield's apartment.
 
So, that just leaves the apartment of Tanner and O'Brien, next door to the McCanns, where Kate's screams would have been easily heard.
 
Yet, if Collins is correct in the statements he has committed to print, then two questions immediately spring to mind: Why was Pennington employed as a babysitter, when the group had a communal checking 'system' that supposedly 'worked'? And if Pennington was babysitting the children of Tanner and O'Brien, then why was Russell O'Brien reportedly absent from the group until just before 10:00pm?
 
Of course, the possibility that there was another family occupying an apartment in the middle of the Tapas groups apartments must be considered. However, it is very curious that if there were such an apartment, and such a family, then why have they never been identified, mentioned or even remotely hinted at?
 
The fog that surrounds the mystery continues to show no signs of lifting.
...................

There can be no doubt that Charlotte Pennington is a fantasist but is that good enough reason to bear false witness - to pervert the course of justice, to capitalize in the name of a missing three year old child? 

I don't think so!

Charlotte Pennington is a chronicle in it's own right - a story line from a soap opera that only she can lay claim to in this miserable affair.  I hope she sleeps well at night.

Carole Tranmer witness statement - 22nd April 2008   [excerpt]

DC1485'Okay. And did you see anyone else; you know what day it was; the day you were there, on Thursday. Do you know if there were more tourists in that block of apartments'

CT' No, that is to say, there were more people in the pool zone. There were more people around. I believe that it may be possible some were swimming, or even playing tennis. I cannot remember.

DC1485'Was there anyone who called your attention' Think, think well about the location and where you were on this day.

CT' On that day'

DC1485'Besides the individual, obviously.

CT' Besides him...

DC1485'Yes.

CT' No one comes to mind. The one thing that I do remember is that some celebration was going on, but I don't know if it was the Sunday or the Thursday. There was some celebration, next to the pool. I do not know if it was the families, the guests of the complex, but there was something. The only thing I can say is that it could have been Sunday or Thursday. I cannot remember and for this reason I would like to leave out this detail.

DC1485'When you speak of a celebration' was it was a barbeque or a bunch of people in good moods'

CT' Well, it appeared to be a celebration, you know, with all the people in good moods and a lot of noise' not much noise but people were laughing and I do not know if this was on Sunday or Thursday.

DC1485'Yes.

CT' This detail I will not mention since I am not certain if it was Sunday or Thursday. Yes, and I don't want to confuse my recollection with this.

....................

April 2008 - that month again!

I don't recall anyone else mentioning a commotion that seemed to be a celebration.  I wonder shy Carole Tranmer, Pamela Fenn's niece, elected to mention it.  If it was indeed on Thursday, it doesn't seem to tie-in with the alleged last photograph scenario and unsuing afternoons activities.

There could be any number of reasons why Gerry and Kate McCann would telephone family and friends back in the UK.  From my experience of this new age, folk can't function without that lump of plastic stuck to the ear - it's almost like an artificial life saving organ.  Even when out and about when there's so much to see, I hear passers by telling whoever's at the other end where they are at that particular moment roll .

The phone calls made immediately following Madeleine's alleged disappearance are of interest as they bear witness to the McCanns planned long term campaign strategy, the wider agenda.

Despite my customary negative view of the UK press, I believe there is some truth in the reportage of the blitz of phone calls made late Thursday 3rd and early Friday 4th May to family and friends.  If for no other reason but their consistency.  By way of example..

It was my younger brother Gerry distraught on the phone, breaking his heart... 'Madeleine is abducted, she's been abducted'. 'They kept going back to check the kids every half hour. The restaurant was only 40 yards away. He went back at 9 o’clock to check the children. They were all sound asleep, windows shut, shutters shut'.

Kate then went over to the two-bedroom ground-floor apartment and 'came out screaming'.  'The door was lying open, the window in the bedroom and the shutters had been jimmied open'. They think someone must have come in the window and gone out of the front door with Madeleine.

Trish Cameron

On the night of Thursday, May 3, 2007, Patricia received a telephone call from Gerry informing us of the disappearance of Madeleine. Gerry manifested all those emotions one expects from a father who has lost a child in the circumstances. He was distraught and spoke at the same time he cried. He seemed frustrated with the slowness of the searches in Portugal, with the fact that the borders had not been closed, and with the fact that sniffer dogs were not being used. Patricia and I contacted the British Embassy to try and help in this regard.

Sandy Cameron

I've got crying for help from my brother and I'm stuck couple of thousand miles away from him. I can't do anything concrete. And then eventually he just said, I don't know what to think. I think some paedophile or some other swine has taken Madeleine.

John McCann

So there we have it, within minutes/hours the abduction peadophile seed was sown, the McCanns at the same time telling their tale to the nearest and dearest to build a firewall to protect themselves from familial doubt - worse still, accusations.  I truly believe the family members quoted are innocent victims of the wider agenda - caught in the net never to break free, it fairness it put them in an untenable position but who cares, just as long as the drama is played out.

To this very day, or at least the last time she spoke in public, Kate McCann continues to mechanically speak of open windows and shutters with swooshing curtains.

Someone is telling porkies.  So early in the day, the nearest and dearest must have been only repeating what they were told.

Verdi:     Someone is telling porkies.  So early in the day, the nearest and dearest must have been only repeating what they were told.

It is fascinating that the Pros can only repeat their mantra that "The McCanns did not say this".
That is all they have.   It clearly Was said, and repeated almost verbatim.
But we will never know the exact words they BOTH used that night. 
We can only surmise, but rely on the quite extraordinary corroboration from the witnesses to draw our conclusions

Phillip Edmonds - Nephew (and co-director of Stemcor) of Margaret Hodge who just happened to be working alongside Lord Levy in his fund raising activities for Tony Blair when both Levy and Blair were being questioned in relation to the cash for honours scandal in 2006. 
Blair not only rapidly dispatched his own media manipulator to PDL to assist the suspects in this case, he was also involved in the PACT (now Action against Abduction) charity alongside Cherie Blair.

Edmonds claimed that he saw Madeleine playing his children and that he had taken photographs of them.  When requested, he was unable to produce the photographs, claiming that they had been sent to the PJ.  These pics appear no-where in the official files.  If this was genuine, Edmonds could have assisted the McCanns by producing those pics.  

We can assume that there were digital copies of these photographs but even if they were taken on a manual camera there would be negatives.
