A Tale of British Government Secret Services Empty A Tale of British Government Secret Services

Post by Verdi on 31.10.20 0:24

Reverting to the very early days of Madeleine McCann's disappearance, Gerry and Kate McCann would have you believe the British government and various other agencies came to their rescue for altruistic reasons, the parents of a little three year old girl who was abducted by a chance prowler on the night of Thursday 3rd May 2007.

Even to this day the public are expected to be duped by yet another diversion, the tale of Germanman - but that's another matter.

Despite the unprecedented action by the British authorities, still the general public were and still are, expected to believe the high level of protection secured was only an act of philanthropic compassion. The infamous former chief executive of the CEOP, Jim Gamble, went so far as to continue the delusion when apparently asked to produce a 'confidential' report on behalf of the British government. So 'confidential' was this report, it was widely reported and acknowledged to be the ultimate get-out clause, to explain away that ever niggling doubt of a government cover-up. Jim Gamble brushed it aside with some vapid attempt to convince the sceptics that the Portuguese investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann was stymied by too many do-gooders just wanting to help.

People like British government ministers, government departments, police departments, diplomats, security services - so on and so forth.

Even to this day, flying in the face of all available evidence to the contrary, surprising as this might seem, some people still believe a cover-up is nothing but a worthless conspiracy theory or baseless speculative mumbo-jumbo.

I challenge anyone to provide a plausible explanation as to why, in opposition to the Portuguese investigation files and all other intelligence, the prime suspects in the disappearance of Madeleine McCann are still walking. Hell, since they escaped Portugal early September 2007 they haven't even been questioned, even though the appointed British police department took it upon themselves to review and later re-investigate the case. How arrogant - but that's an aside. Fact remains, they have failed to investigate the parents of the missing child - Gerry and Kate McCann.

The remit of Operation Grange, according to the former lead DCI Andy Redwood, was to take everything back to the beginning, leaving nothing out - leave no stone unturned to use the vernacular. Meanwhile, the police chief at the time publicly declared the McCanns had been investigated by the Portuguese so there was no requirement for them, Operation Grange, to go over old ground - they were satisfied the McCanns were/are totally innocent, just the victims of an unthinkable tragedy.

Very big red flag!

So .... how can anyone who follows this case believe that the McCanns are walking free for any other reason than a corrupt government cover-up?

Here follows an insightful narrative by forum member and staunch campaigner for justice in the name of Madeleine McCann. Take it away Mr Tony Bennett..

By Tony Bennett - 2nd July 2014

Evidence of the direct involvement of MI5, MI6 and other branches of government security services in the Madeleine McCann case

This is an attempt to put together a short summary of what is known about the direct involvement of MI5, MI6 and other branches of government security services in the Madeleine McCann case. It is made following press reports this week about Goncalo Amaral’s recent references to the continuing involvement of MI5 in the Madeleine McCann case. It is not meant to be comprehensive, it is just at this stage a series of notes about the involvement of the British security services in the case. I hope others will add to them.

It does not cover other forms of government assistance to the McCanns which we know includes:

The heavy early involvement of the British ambassador and consul in Portugal

The appointment of Clarence Mitchell, then head of the government’s 40-strong Media Monitoring Unit, to manage the reputation of the McCanns and control publicity on the case from the first month right up until today

The involvement of CEOP in seeking photographs direct from the public and then, through Jim Gamble, actively assisting the McCann campaign on several occasions

Intervention with the Border Agency, allowing the McCanns to avoid going through customs control

The personal intervention of Gordon Brown in the case, first as Chancellor of the Exchequer and then as Prime Minister

Meetings by successive Home Secretaries with the McCanns

Directing the Metropolitan Police to set up Operation Grange.

MI5, MI6 and security services involvement in the Madeleine McCann case: A summary

1. Goncalo Amaral, in his book, ‘The Truth About A Lie’, refers to the active involvement of staff from MI5 in his investigation

2. In an article about the case as recently as 29 June 2014, Goncalo Amaral again spoke of MI5 involvement: http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/485524/Madeleine-McCann-Disgraced-Portuguese-detective-MI5-spies-know-what-happened-to-Maddie
He said: “People will eventually learn what really happened when MI5 opens the case files. Don’t forget that the British secret services followed the case right from the beginning. I don’t know if that information will be made available, but if it’s like the United States, it takes years to have access to confidential information”.

3. In his book, ‘The Truth About A Lie’, Amaral makes these observations: “Two days later, English colleagues begin to arrive…Bob Small, an officer from the Leicestershire police, and one of his colleagues meet us to take stock of the situation…We insist on knowing what our English counterparts have come to Portugal to do…Then two more police officers arrive who are assigned to psychological support and communication with the family. Little by little, the number of English police officers grows exponentially. We place at their disposal a room next to our crisis unit, Task Portugal. These are specialists from various police services, including Scotland Yard. Special surveillance teams as well as information and telecommunications technicians turn up with their laptops and various high-tech equipment… Members of the British agency the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre [who had arrived in Portugal], take a close interest in Murat and work to develop his psychological profile…”

4. Amaral also states that Martin Grime, when he travelled back from taking his cadaver dogs Eddie and Keela to Portugal, was met by an MI5 officer who asked him questions (July 2007)

5. Control Risks Group (CRG), a risks and corporate security firm with very close links to the government, sent senior staff to Portugal to advise the McCanns and talk to the Portuguese Police on their behalf. Kate McCann refers to them in her book ‘madeleine’ as ‘primed to help’ (p. 125). CRG were also responsible for sending in another adviser to the McCanns, a man who, when the McCanns asked who he was, said ‘call me Hugh’ and declined to give his name. Kate McCann describes him as ‘a former intelligence officer, now a kidnap negotiator and counselor. ‘Hugh’ said that an ‘anonymous private donor’ was willing to fund the McCanns’ application to make Madeleine a Ward of Court

6. On 14 September 2007 there was a high-powered meeting at Kingsley Napley in London: present were the McCanns, Brian Kennedy, his lawyer and senior Freemason Edward Smethurt, Solicitor Angus McBride (who drove up to Rothley to collect the McCanns), top Solicitor Michael Caplan QC (an expert in extradition proccedings) and at least two members of staff of security company Control Risks Group

7. Gary Hgland, a private investigator chosen personally by Cheshire businessman to assist on the Madeleine McCann case, mentioned, in a chapter of his so-far-unpublished book, meeting with an old friend of his ‘on the Moroccan desk of MI6’ in connection with the McCann Team’s intention to mount a publicity drive in Morocco

8. A Special Branch officer met the McCanns at the airport on their hurried return from Portugal on 9 September and personally drove them to Rothley (‘madeleine’ by Dr Kate McCann, p. 259)

9. Henri Exton, one of the staff employed by Kevin Halligen and Oakley International, is known to have been the former Head of Covert Intelligence at MI5 – until he was dismissed from MI5 after a shoplifting offence. He was awarded the Queen’s Police Medal and the O.B.E. for extensive work in covert security matters for the Ministry of Defence. A blogger about the Madeleine case, known as ‘Blackwatch’, who had inside knowledge of the workings of the British security services, once wrote: “This is no middle grade security services player; he was - as is on the record - formerly the Head of MI5’s Covert Intelligence Section – and you don’t get much higher than that”.

10. Earlier this year, the Sunday Times published an article which said this about evidence compiled by Kevin Halligen, Henri Exton and Oakley International: “The evidence was in fact taken from an intelligence report produced for Gerry and Kate McCann by a firm of former spies in 2008. It contained crucial E-Fits of a man seen carrying a child on the night of Madeleine’s disappearance, which have only this month become public after he was identified as the prime suspect by Scotland Yard. A team of hand-picked former MI5 agents had been hired by the McCanns to chase a much-needed breakthrough in the search for their missing daughter Madeleine”.

11. Kevin Halligen, the disgraced criminal employed by the McCanns for 4 months at a cost of around £700,000, had extensive connections with the security services. For example, on 30 July 2004 Tim Craig-Harvey, Natasha Duval and Halligen set up Red Defence Ltd; all had connections with British government security services.
