So this fund as far back as May 2007 was being spoken of as a legal fund. Well I never knew that, and how many more of the gullable public will know that? May 2007 they knew they were going to need a lot of money for legal fees. Well they certainly got that correct.

In January 2008 Clarence Mitchell went on the record saying "We've not agreed anything, we're not about to sign anything. We like the proposal, we thought it was fair, but there are others."
He added: "It would be commercially naive if we did not ask for a donation to the Madeleine fund. We would be giving up the rights to a lot of money which could help to find her.
"Any money raised that way would go to the fund, which Kate and Gerry do not control. This is not about personal gain for them.
"Madeleine's Fund is spent on investigators and advertising. It's dwindling. The money is going. I would imagine we've got a few months left. It's not going to last the year unless we get more money in."

Thanks I have seen that video but that and the article with Clarence Mitchell couldnt be more different (except Clarence is the master of spin). What are your thoughts?

Didn't Esher McVey leave the board not long after this............................



McCanns may use Madeleine fund for defence



By Nick Britten

4:34PM BST 11 Sep 2007



Madeleine McCann's parents want to use the £1 million fund donated by the public to help pay for their defence.



The six directors controlling Madeleine's Fund will meet within the next 24 hours to discuss whether to release the money if the McCanns are charged.


The move could anger many donors who handed over money believing it would be used solely to help find the missing four-year-old.


If it is decided not to use the cash, the McCanns face financial ruin.


They are thought to earn around £120,000 a year but have not worked since May.

Mr McCann, a cardiologist, has been on unpaid leave and Mrs McCann has given up her role as a GP.

With no income and facing huge legal bills for a fight that could last several years, the couple will have to find the money from other donors, their family or through drastic measures like selling their house.

They are keen for the money to be released after hiring a senior legal team including Michael Caplin QC, who has represented a string of high-profile clients such as General Augusto Pinochet.

One director, Esther McVey, a former television presenter, said: "At the moment none of the fund has been used to pay for the defence case. But we are convening a meeting to decide if it can be used.

"When the fund was set up, one of its stated aims was to provide financial support for Madeleine's family as they searched for her.

"We are uncertain if the use of the money to pay for lawyers in these unexpected circumstances would be in the spirit of that aim. We will be taking advice from a barrister."

Miss McVey, 39, a friend of Mrs McCann's since their student days, refused to comment on whether people had begun asking for their money back after the McCanns were named as formal suspects.

Because the fund is a private business and not a registered charity, the money is not ring-fenced for a particular purpose and there is little to stop the McCanns using the money for legal fees.

The Charity Commission ruled that the fund could not be registered because its aims were not broad enough. Instead, Madeleine’s Fund: Leaving No Stone Unturned Ltd, was set up as a company. It means that the McCanns only have to get the directors' consent to access the cash.

As well as Miss McVey, the board includes Doug Skehan, 54, a clinical director of cardiology at Glenfield Hospital in Leicester and colleague of Mr McCann, Peter Hubner, 64, a retired consultant and Philip Tomlinson, 76, a lawyer, both of whom are friends.

John McCann, 48, Mr McCann's brother, and Mr Kennedy are also directors but Miss McVey said they would not be able to vote because they are family members.

I know JD, it's the most bizarre case I've ever known and I'm no spring chick. Brian Kennedy Admits Madeleine Fund was for Legal Expenditure - Page 1 110921

Wonder if Brian Kennedy is still struggling in the 'credit crunch' - (I hate these stupid buzzwords) like he was in 2009? Apparently that was the reason he gave for letting Clarence Mitchell go. Brian Kennedy Admits Madeleine Fund was for Legal Expenditure - Page 1 5251

If this is true, who paid Clarrie's wages after this?

Brian kennedy saying the money was probably for legal expenditure is one of only two truths we have heard throughout this scam. The second was Gerry's mother saying he was uplifted by the fund, I bet he was, all that cash rolling in.

I only hope that Scotland Yard do much more than review paperwork and conduct a thorough investigation, the thing they are so excellent at. If the McCanns have nothing to hide there is nothing to worry about. The general public provided the money for their Fund and the taxpayer is financing the Scotland Yard inquiry.

If it's "not an appeal" as he claims, then why set up a mechanism whereby  members of the public can contribute if they wish, and then go on national television explaining how they can go about it?  Who does this arrogant old bastard think he's kidding?

The video was 17th May.

Two weeks after Madeleine went missing.

Nobody was expecting her to be found soon then.

But they did foresee legal fees for some reason...

As"Pinnocio"Clarence eloquently stated,"Just put the Find Madeleine Fund,Rothley" it will get their!

I bet they did get their and as you would understand,"All Cash donations were treated accordingly",yeah OK,right Clarence,remind us who paid your fees,Clarence,oh the,"Find Madeleine fund" for over Ten years,ker ching!
Ten multiplied by £25,000=£250,000 minimum paid to him from the Fund,To "Find Madeleine"!

Madeleine McCann is thought to be alive and well,that's why the Parents had a top legal firm including Lady Justice Hogg,make Madeleine McCann a ward of Court,taking over"Parental Role" after the child was absent for Ten days,So why did this Ward of Court be necessitated so quickly,oh it was,Kate,Gerry's Daughter?
