THE IMPORTANT PEOPLE WHO RUSHED OUT TO PRAIA DA LUZ AFTER 3 MAY 2007 AND BY FRIDAY 11 MAY 2007

One of the most extraordinary features of the Madeleine McCann case is the huge number of government and embassy officials, secret service and security staff, public relations officers,  lawyers, private agencies with government contracts and assorted others who descended on Praia da Luz in the first week after Madeleine McCann was reported missing.

What was it about this reported disappearance of a 3-year-old British girl which appeared to trigger an action little short of panic from so many high-level people?

Likewise, hundreds of media journalists also descended on Praia da Luz, their editors apparently desperate to get every possible item of the latest news to their readers and viewers.

This article provides a useful list - but is probably not complete. MMRG has added names from time to time to this list as new information has emerged.

Others

OTHER APPOINTMENTS


Clarence Mitchell, Head of the government’s Media Monitoring Unit: According to the reply to a Freedom of Information request, he was appointed on Sunday 6 May to head up the government’s PR support for the McCanns, but he did not travel to Portugal until 22 May 2007


The government set up a very high-powered liaison committee on Tuesday 8 May under the Chairmanship of Matt Baggott, Leicestershire Police Chief Constable. It consisted of representatives from a wide variety of government departments and agencies. The government has refused to answer FoIAct questions about who those agencies were.


Government Ministers Gordon Brown (Chancellor of the Exchequer) and Margaret Beckett (Foreign Secretary) spoke to Gerry McCann in the first week. Tony Blair, Prime Minister, did so later.


Literally hundreds of international journalists were also there in that first week.

This is perhaps the biggest 'tell' of all that something really bad, something really wicked, something that must at all costs be kept secret, happened to Madeleine McCann on that holiday.

Can anyone on this forum come up with a coherent and credible alternative explanation for why so many top government, PR, police, lawyers and state security officials positively swarmed like locusts into that little village of Praia da Luz, all in just those first few days?

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

Don't be silly!

You're sullying probably the most important factor of this case, as said above ^^^ the reason why we are here fourteen years down the line and why we discourage time wasters and charlatans who come here to disrupt and for idle larks.

Your goodself excluded ....

Looking through the PJ files yesterday, this caught my attention.

Correspondence on 27th Sept 07, to G Amaral.
Pages 2945 to 2952.

The Direcao Central de Combate ao Banditismo (DCCB) got wind of the possible arrival of certain Englishmen from an information gathering organisation (CRG) supposedly to clean places and things associated with the family.

What I don't understand is how high their support is; from Blair all the way through to Johnson, PMs have all backed the suspicious side. Pretty much every organisation beneath that point will just be following orders, not everybody acting in defence of the parents can know what's happened. The Portuguese have been leant on, the Germans are supporting it(I was expecting good things when I heard they were involved), this has to have very high level support and I can only think of 2 reasons for that both incredible but not unbelievable, only the Americans (from what I've heard) find this crime as astounding as we do.

I think that this level of support is what makes the McCann's so confident  that whatever their degree of responsibility  for Madeleine's fate, they are home and dry.
