IFLG and PACT

Post by PeterMac on 03.07.11 9:02

Within a day or so of the 'event' the International Family Law Group (IFLG) were involved and had sent out a representative.
Subsequently the McCanns got into the organisation Parents and Abducted Children Together, (PACT)

Both agencies talks about 'abducted children', but not in the sense of abduction by stranger, pae****, or anyone other than the natural father/mother who happens to live somethere else and usually outside the jurisdiction of the British Courts.

IFLG
"We resolve the financial aspects of relationship breakdown for all families. This includes expertise in high net worth individuals with global and complex assets. We also look after the distinctive aspects of international families and expatriates, working closely with many lawyers abroad.

Our work includes international child abduction as well as all other national and international disputes involving children.

We provide a full range of alternative dispute resolution services including a specialist mediation service. This includes both high conflict situations involving cross-border issues with children and complex financial circumstances. Our mediators have a wide range of experience and knowledge in dealing with relationship breakdown which extends across international borders. They understand the difficulties faced by parents wishing to live in different countries and cover Hague and non-Hague child abduction, international contact and child relocation dispute."


PACT
"Parental child abduction across borders

As a pioneer in this field, PACT has played a significant role in raising awareness of international parental child abduction and how it affects children. We have, for example, lobbied the House of Commons, the US Congress and EU institutions. PACT has produced a documentary which has been distributed worldwide. Although we are not a helpline, our website offers advice on steps for parents to take if their child has been abducted to a Hague Convention country. "


Again, just to bash it home, the taking of a child by one parent from the custody of the other parent, so that the child can live as part of the first parent's family.
NOT the unlawful removal of a child by someone outside the family.

It was reported that Katey first said words along the lines "They've taken her".
Other members of the group were reported to have said words along the lines 'We knew something might happen, but not this.'
And for the first few days both Katey and Gerry used the expression "...when IT happened". Does this imply that there was previous knowledge of an outcome ?
Some of these statements have been edited or denied subsequently.
Both parents insist Madeleine is alive and well, unharmed, and at one point even insisted she was living with a couple.

Was this a strategy which went wrong, and was subsequently dropped, perhaps on legal advice, in favour of the predatory Pae****, who had been watching for some time, taking notes (!) and so on ?
The problem with the change is that the insisting on Madeleine's safety canot be transferred from the first scenario to the second.

Thanks for the information PeterMac on these two organisations, it's certainly strange that they became involved in a case which, with its theory of stranger abduction, does not come within their remit. I'm wondering if there is any relevance to the report that, at one time, there was talk of transferring the care of Madeleine to a relative.

I always thought that question 41 was a very strange thing to ask. What would prompt the PJ to ask such a question?

Question 41

41. Is it true that in England you even considered handing over Madeleine’s custody to a relative?

Indeed. I don't know of the source of that particular rumour, but good detectives, like good barristers, do not ask questions unless they already know the answer.
And add to that the otherwise extraordinary statement by Katey that Madeleine 'would be giving her 'abductor' her tuppenceworth', which is so unlikely and ludicrous in the case of a pred** paed***, but much more likely and possible in the case of a 'natural parent' with whom Madeleine had not previously lived.

Personally I do not yet go for this particular conspiracy theory, but I am having difficulty resolving this issue.

I've just seen a short-lived topic in January about our old friend Jim Gamble being on the board of PACT though not I think in 2007. Still, he gets around, doesn't he?

I know the non=profit circuit in 2 countries and it is a little happy group of people, given each other jobs, appointing each other at the boards, giving grands to each other.
An ideal environment for laundering money and paying people off with, amongst other things, outrageous reimbursements for expenses.

I thought it might be worth raising this issue again, as Tony B enquired about the IFLG in another post. PeterMac has raised an interesting point here. Why would this group be involved?

From google search on IFLG
quote:
Managing Partner: Ann Thomas
Number of partners: 6
Assistant solicitors: 4
Other fee-earners: 3
Consultants: 2
THE FIRM Ann Thomas and David Hodson founded The International Family Law Group LLP (“iFLG”) in 2007 each having a wealth of experience in international family law cases. They are both Fellows of the IAML. Carolynn Usher, Punam Denley, Lucy Greenwood and Helen Blackburn are fellow partners, and have huge experience in international and national family law cases.Consultants, Patrick Parkinson A.M. and Denise Carter OBE (former Director of Reunite and mediator) are Consultants of iFLG.

PRINCIPAL AREAS OF WORK iFLG deal with all issues arising from relationship breakdown for national and international families/expatriates, including all disputes involving children (including child abduction, relocation and adoption), marriage/separation agreements, jurisdiction and finance work. iFLG provides a full range of alternative dispute resolution services.

INTERNATIONAL iFLG is associated with Watts McCray of Sydney and Canberra, Australia. unquote

So how on earth did the McCanns know about the IFLG or indeed did the IFLG concern itself with what was supposed to be an abduction by pedophiles?
And they had been in existence for no more than four months!
Besides, their verdict on the parenting of the anointed two would be INADMISSIBLE in court, since they are not qualified to give such an assurance. It must be solely an opinion. Only the social services are empowered to make such judgements surely? Otherwise any tin pot solicitor can set himself up to distribute 'get out of jail free' cards to all and sundry.

The above link to wiki no longer works. Lady Meyer joined that january as well, so didn't stay long did she?
The website for Pact mentions Amber Alert, etc. Imo it's all one web, anybody who's likely to make lots of money out of devising a control over children such as microchipping?

What annoys me immensely is that a bunch of jumped up solicitors and doctors get together to organize 'child protection'.

The only way this quote of Kate's - "Whoever Madeleine's with she'll be giving them her tuppence worth." - makes sense to me is if she's pondering which long passed relative may be caring for Madeleine in the afterlife. To suggest that she could defend herself in this manner against a paedo/predator is beyond ridiculous. Even if she were a feistly little thing, being torn from her family and possibly subjected to horrendous abuse would surely have changed her personality beyond recognition.

Yes this always stood out in my mind. Surely they must have been working on some kind of intelligence, it is such a strange question to just randomly ask.

May be if it had been worded "Have you ever thought about giving your daughter up to the authorities or relative?", but being precise as to a close relative does make you wonder.

Could well even tie in the the CATS number.

Stella, you've converted me, I didn't like all those VIP's in PdL in your topic 'Was this the reason...' (a sticky now but it is hard to find).
But now I have a brand new firm of lawyers, magically known to the McCs within four months of them setting up IFLG.
It's getting more like a monopoly game than anything else. IFLG's blessing of their parenting was published far and wide. In fact, a greengrocer telling them the same thing would have had the same authority in law as IFLG imo.

And so I'm back to the quote below and the fact that:
Maddie looks right for 2006 in the poolside photo.
There is that pesky date of 2006 on the first website.
The sudden departure of a nr. of people from PdL on the 4th, suggests to me that the abduction was a surprise to those who departed so quickly.
So: did the McCs pull it off then and there, expecting plaudits and thanks? Getting the IFLG and PACT onside before the event? Or would IFLG not even have been set up?
Instead they seem to have set back the enterprise of microchipping the population by years. As they are hardly original thinkers, the outline in the report dating from 2006 below may have inspired the whole thing. unquote.

the link above refers to the article when published on the 10th dec. 2006. However, I expect the original report will be earlier.

http://thedisclosureproject-steelmagnolia.blogspot.com/2011/06/agenda-microchip-one-generation-is-all.html


At this juncture, an unfortunately common tragedy of modern life will occur: A small child, likely a photogenic toddler, will be murdered or horrifically abused. It will happen in one of the media capitals of the Western world, thereby ensuring non-stop breathless coverage. Chip manufactures will recognize this as the opportunity they have been anticipating for years. With their technology now largely bug-free, familiar to most citizens and comparatively inexpensive, manufacturers will partner with the police to launch a high-profile campaign encouraging parents to implant their children "to ensure your own peace of mind."

Seems the IFLG sent a solicitor Richard Jones to portugal for some reason,even though they dealt with family abduction not stranger abduction:

McCann family to launch fighting fund
By Nick Britten and Richard Edwards12:01AM BST 15 May 2007
A fighting fund will be launched by the McCann family and could be used to finance private detectives to join the hunt.
The family has instructed one of the country's leading legal specialists on child abduction to help them run the foundation, which is expected to be launched tomorrow.
Michael Nicholls QC was head of the Lord Chancellor's Child Abduction Unit for five years and is, among other things, a member of the Family Justice Council's International Family Law Committee.

Mr Nicholls was instructed by the McCanns' solicitors, The International Family Law Group, who have sent their solicitor Richard Jones to Portugal to be with them

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/1551645/McCann-family-to-launch-fighting-fund.html

Looking at the archives for the IFLG website, Richard jones is on the first archived instance (21 June 2007) but is no longer there on the next archived instance (22 Aug 2007). Also seems he was a lawyer in leicester:


Richard Jones

Senior Family Law Executive
Richard Jones is a Senior Family Law Executive at iFLG, having come to London in May 2006 from a leading law firm in Leicester. For the past 15 years he has specialised in International Parental Child abduction cases both under the Hague Convention and with complex non-Hague cases where there are no international treaties.

new firm of lawers

Post by russiandoll on 15.01.12 16:32

from Tigger : " But now I have a brand new firm of lawyers, magically known to the McCs within four months of them setting up IFLG"

Would this be the same bunch Desmond referred to at Leveson last week? He mentioned a change in the McCann's attitude towards the press 4 months after the event , when new lawyers came on board.

I don't know, I meant the max. of four months when the IFLG was set up in 2007, since they - according to their website started up in 2007, it seems nothing short of miraculous to me that the McCanns or one of their friends already knew about this brand-new outfit. Not only that, their first visit was on the 11th May when the McCanns were given virtual absolution re parenting responsibility.

I think Desmond is talking about September, when they had to return to the UK and must have gotten new lawyers then, was that CR?

O, B.H.! Stewie, now we are really coining it. Richard Jones, Leicester, abduction. I've felt all along that 2006 was a pivotal year and you've just proved it. These are in no way coincidences. So IFLG helped set up the 'fighting fund' , legalized their conduct and sent them a real live solicitor to hold their hands. And the IFLG was at most four months old. All we need now is an earlier link with Richard Jones and the McCanns, probably in Leicester?
And how and who contacted this group - surely, I saw that an International Family Law Committee also exists, wouldn't that have been enough to deal with the subject?
Looks as if IFLG was notified only marginally later than Sky news and the police.

As soon as I saw his name and Leicester I thought I bet he was the one to go over to PDL - then found the newspaper naming him as their lawyer...

The IFLG is even younger - it launched 31 March 2007... so 6 weeks or so old by the time of the events... and by 22 August Richard Jones is no longer with them... didn't stay very long...

Precisely. The world population is 7+++ Billion, and growing... can you imagine the amount of money to be made by chipping 8b people, by having amber/red alert systems on gantries over all motorways etc (as they do in the USA), all the add-ons that would be needed?
Well the 'elite class' for want of a better term certainly do, and the MBM case is playing right into their hands, whether they had anything to do with it or not.

So IFLG helped set up the 'fighting fund' , legalized their conduct and sent them a real live solicitor to hold their hands. And the IFLG was at most four months old. All we need now is an earlier link with Richard Jones and the McCanns, probably in Leicester?
And how and who contacted this group - surely, I saw that an International Family Law Committee also exists, wouldn't that have been enough to deal with the subject?
Looks as if IFLG was notified only marginally later than Sky news and the police.

Check the Leicester Masonic Lodge members, I wonder if Jones is on the square, like almost everyone else in this case...

As soon as I saw his name and Leicester I thought I bet he was the one to go over to PDL - then found the newspaper naming him as their lawyer...

The IFLG is even younger - it launched 31 March 2007... so 6 weeks or so old by the time of the events... and by 22 August Richard Jones is no longer with them... didn't stay very long...

Is that a case of, 'mission accomplished'??? the appeal fund LIMITED board is also a bit of a merry go round, in fact lots of faces don't last too long, perhaps when they learn too much, or the penny drops - but like all the consular staff who didn't believe the TM story, all transferred to timbuktu...

This is their blurb starting off on the 31st March (one day later would have been more fitting) .
So if I got this right: we are a NEW etc. but we are already - five minutes into our enterprise - regularly instructed by the UK Government.

And what is 'forum shopping?' no idea.

Altogether a strong smell of sea bass - looking at Mr. Jones, he certainly looks like he's on the square.
