KATE AND GERRY MCCANN HUNT FOR CALLER WHO TRIED TO GRAB AGENT'S PHONE RECORDS





Attempts have been made to find out about phone calls the McCanns made to their spokesman


Sunday January 30,2011

By James Murray

KATE and Gerry McCann are furious after discovering attempts have been made to find out about phone calls they made to their spokesman, Clarence Mitchell.

Scotland Yard is trying to establish who tried to get information from Mr Mitchell’s mobile phone provider, while the McCanns are checking their phone records to see if they were also targeted.

The news comes just as the pair have signed a deal for a reputed £200,000 with The Sun, the sister paper of the News of the World, to serialise a book on the disappearance of their daughter Madeleine in Portugal in 2007.

There is no suggestion anyone from Rupert Murdoch’s News International has tried to use phone-hacking against Mr Mitchell. He said the first incident was in 2008, when a mystery caller claiming to be a court witness contacted Vodafone on February 29, seeking details of his phone.

Mr Mitchell said: “The operator lists it, saying ‘a gentleman called wishing to check the phone’ as he gets calls each night from the number wanting information and is a ‘witness on the CID trial for McCanns’. It certainly wasn’t me that made that call. There was no such thing as a CID trial for the McCanns.

“That appears to be a blatant attempt to get information about whose number it was and what was happening. Thankfully, the operator didn’t give them anything.”

A further call was made to Vodafone in July. Mr Mitchell said: “Basically, it [the entry] claims the person ringing, not me, received a text message claiming that a third party had been trying to access their voicemail but there was nothing on the account showing that. That’s because it isn’t true, I never got such a text. Somebody else is again fishing for information.”

This week Mr Mitchell will pass his phone records to Scotland Yard. Kate and Gerry, both 42, have found nothing untoward on their phone statements, but are re-examining all their records.

Mr Mitchell said: “We have concerns. We would be foolish if we didn’t think they were of interest.”

Kate’s book about Madeleine’s disappearance will be published on May 12, her eighth birthday.

Start here Clarence:


Portuguese police tapping McCanns' phone calls and emails


Last updated at 17:49 11 September 2007


Portuguese police have been tapping Gerry and Kate McCann's mobile phone calls and hacking into their emails since early August, it has been claimed.
Under Portuguese law, police can tap phones or emails if they believe it will help solve a serious crime.
A family friend of the McCann's said: "Gerry told me police are listening to every word they say and reading every email they write."

Kate McCann believes DNA evidence was planted
Read more...



Kate McCann is also said to believe that the DNA evidence, on which the case against the McCanns appears to hang, has been placed there in a bid to frame them for Madeleine's murder.
A source close to Kate MCCann said today: "She believes the evidence has been planted - either by the police or even by the abductor.
"Gerry's view is if it is there, it has been planted or it has been accidentally transferred there."
Portuguese prosecutors were today due to start considering thousands of pages of police evidence as they received the full file on Madeleine, and to decide whether to bring charges.
In his blog on the website www.findmadeleine.com, Mr McCann described the past few days as "unbelievably stressful and emotionally draining".


Portuguese police believe Madeleine McCann is now dead

He wrote: "The pain and turmoil we have experienced in this last week is totally beyond description.
Portuguese police declared the McCanns arguidos - or formal suspects - after a breakthrough in DNA tests conducted in Britain.
Police in Portugal now believe Mrs McCann killed Madeleine and her husband helped cover up the crime, hiding the body temporarily before disposing of it at least 25 days later using the hire car.

The McCanns say the claim is ludicrous and far-fetched and they fear they are being framed by the Policia Judiciaria.
Mrs McCann made her claim of being framed in a telephone call to a close friend after she was interrogated for 11 hours at Portimao police station on Thursday, where she was accused of killing her daughter.
The friend said: "When we spoke, the feeling was very much from her that they were being stitched up."
It is understood that the new legal team hired by the McCanns to defend them - they could face charges at any time - will scrutinise the forensic evidence and employ their own expert.
The McCanns have let it be known they are scathing about the standard of policing in Portugal, with one source suggesting that the forensics gathered could easily have been contaminated by officers inexperienced in modern policing techniques.
One source suggested that officers had failed to take the McCanns' fingerprints properly on the night Madeleine vanished and had to take them again the next day.

The officer who searched their holiday apartment in Praia da Luz wore only gloves and not the overalls which are standard practice in Britain to prevent contamination of evidence.
The McCanns could remain arguidos for up to a year, leaving them uncertain of their future.
But police could also issue arrest warrants at any time, forcing them to return to the Algarve, from where Madeleine vanished on 3 May.
The source said the McCanns were much calmer since returning home on Sunday and have regrouped to defend their reputation and continue the worldwide search for Madeleine.

"Now it has happened the way it has they are not unhappy at being home. They can return to some form of normality," said the source.
"They can get some rest and recuperation. They have easy access to lawyers and communications rather than being one stage removed in a hostile environment. They were increasingly isolated in the new villa."

This pair always seem to be far too overly sensitive over those things they feel they have no control of.

''KATE and Gerry McCann are furious after discovering attempts have been made to find out about phone calls they made to their spokesman, Clarence Mitchell.''

Does this pair of ex argudios ever react to anything without fury? If they are furious over this, how will they react should the Portuguese judiciary finally allows some of their recorded telephone conversations and emails to be disclosed as evidence?

This week Mr Mitchell will pass his phone records to Scotland Yard. Kate and Gerry, both 42, have found nothing untoward on their phone statements, but are re-examining all their records.

It is a great pity that they chose not to examine their telephone records from a much earlier time in May 2007, and explain why they and their friends were calling people in the middle of the night and in the early hours of the morning. These are the records which need to be fully examined.

Mr Mitchell said: “The operator lists it, saying ‘a gentleman called wishing to check the phone’ as he gets calls each night from the number wanting information and is a ‘witness on the CID trial for McCanns’. It certainly wasn’t me that made that call. There was no such thing as a CID trial for the McCanns.

Not yet there isn't, Mitchell! There may not have been any such thing to date, but give it a bit of time, and never say never.

Yes they are always furious aren't they.

Madeleine McCann: Breaking Into The Phone Hacking Scandal

KATE and Gerry McCann will have their official Madeleine McCann book serialised in the Sun. Over in the Express, there is the talk of Team McCann having their calls hacked. It’s nothing to do with the News of the World and Andy Colson. But news is that McCanns might have had their calls hacked. Possibly. Maybe.

Writes James Murray:

The parents of the missing child are “furious after discovering attempts have been made to find out about phone calls they made to their spokesman, Clarence Mitchell”.

Fury. Always the fury.

Fury. Fury. Fury. Fury. Fury. Fury. Fury. Fury. Fury. Fury. Fury. Fury.

Fury. Fury. Fury. Fury. Fury.


But this is not a phone hack but a story about someone who, allegedly, wanted to know what calls the McCanns’ PR might have made or received? This story is not new but based on a BBC story one week earlier.

Jon Manel wondered is Mr Mitchell had had his phone’s voicemail hacked. Mitchell responded thus:

“I was always concerned that if some journalists were up to this sort of thing that I might be a target but I had no proof”…

However, he was provided with some information including details of calls made to Vodafone about his account. Two instances were drawn to his attention, the first one on 29 February 2008.

Mr Mitchell said: “The operator lists it, saying ‘a gentleman called wishing to check the phone’, as he gets calls each night from the number and wanting information and is a ‘witness on the CID trial for McCanns’.

“Well, that doesn’t make sense. It certainly wasn’t me that made that call. I would never use that phraseology and there was no such thing as a CID trial for the McCanns. It’s ridiculous.

“That appears to me to be a blatant attempt to get information about whose number it was and what was happening. Thankfully the operator didn’t give them anything.”

It sounds not a lot like a non-event.

But the Express sees more:

This week Mr Mitchell will pass his phone records to Scotland Yard. Kate and Gerry, both 42, have found nothing untoward on their phone statements, but are re-examining all their records.

More no news of Our Maddie to follow…

So they might be in for shock. It might be the PT police asking for their records!

To further authenticate any telephone calls and pings which may have been made prior to May 3rd and in the days and weeks after?
