I’m no longer Madeleine Foundation Secretary, nor on the Committee wef. 9 Feb 2012

Is this true?

The Contact details have been vacant for many many months, so has this just happened or did Tony leave MF ages ago?

Fighting a committal to prison application - without legal representation

Post by Tony Bennett on 12.02.12 8:44

This is an extract from the latest Madeleine Foundation newsletter, sent to members and supporters yesterday morning, to which I shall add a comment below:

2. The resignation of Tony Bennett as Secretary and from the Madeleine Foundation Committee


It is with regret that on the day after the hearing Tony resigned as Secretary and also from the Committee of The Madeleine Foundation. Tony has authorised us to say that he feels that, given the pressures he is under of having to fight a contempt of court action on his own, which could lead to his imprisonment and/or an unlimited fine, he must disengage from the Madeleine Foundation which he set up over 4 years ago.

On Monday 6 February he saw two Doctors at his practice about a recent deterioration in his asthma condition. At that consultation, his blood pressure was significantly raised for the first time ever in his life. Given an extremely stressful 2-day trial ahead of him, and a huge amount of preparation he has ahead of him, he has to focus on defending himself. We would all like to emphasise that the work of the Madeleine Foundation continues as before, subject to what we say in the next section of our Newsletter.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Some people have been unable to understand why I am having to defend this committal to prison application unrepresented.

It is not really as if I have any choice. The cardboard box that arrived by limousine courier on 1 December contained five large Lever Arch files with 2,000 pages of evidence against me and a list of 153 alleged breaches of an undertaking.

These alleged breaches included:

* Reading out the 48 questions that Dr Kate McCann refused tro answer on 7 September 2007

* The publishing of 'The Madeleine McCann Case Files: Volume 1' (to which the McCanns had raised no previous objection whatsoever during the preceding 23 months since its publication in January 2010), and

* On 5 February, referring to Madeleine's disappearance as a 'mystery', 14 days before the McCanns' spokesman, Clarence Mitchell, referred to it on 19 February 2010 as 'a complete mystery'

On taking legal advice I discovered that huge solicitor's and barrister's fees would be needed merely to READ these 2,000 pages before they could even start to give ADVICE in wrtiting. Then having studied 2,000 pages and looked up the law and advised, there would be huge further fees for CONFERENCES with a barrister in London to discuss the law and strategies etc. plus of course further sizeable fees for REPRESENTATION.

The solicitor I saw also advised that a detailed reply would be required to each and every alleged breach of undertaking.

By the time we got to the hearing on 8 February, I had worked my way through formulating a written response to a few dozen of the alleged breaches. Much of this time may prove to be wasted, since Mr Justice Tugendhat effectively told the Cater-Ruck team in court to go away and reduce this to 10 specimen alleged breaches. His references to 'the large volume of Lever Arch files on my table' and his statement that 'there is considerable force in Mr Bennett's submission that he needs more time to answer 2,000 pages of allegations' made clear that he thought Carter-Ruck had been excessive in their approach to proving an alleged breach of undertaking.

That is small comfort as I now have to wait to find out which are my '25 or so' worst offences (Carter-Ruck want 25 in there, not 10), and start the process of responding to these all over again.

Some might argue that the delivery of the box was meant to be intimidating and that listing 153 breaches and photocopying lengthy articles from our website and this forum in full was meant to send out this message:

"You'll either have to fork out tens of thousands on legal fees - or struggle on alone without help".

That unfortunately is the state of our libel laws at the moment.

By the way, just one thing for the record. It is only ONE undertaking that is at issue in these proceedings, namely the one dealing with not libelling the McCanns in future. Here is a full list of the other things I agreed to on 25 November 2009, all of which I fulfilled apart from selling one book to Mr Gunnill/Sangerte/Tarwin/Peters, who said he needed the book 'for reasons of historical research).

Off to my mother's on the south coast in a few minutes and take her out to Sunday lunch:

LIST OF UNDERTAKINGS COMPLIED WITH:

· To deliver up all hard copies of “What really happened to Madeleine McCann? 60 key reasons which suggest that she was not abducted” (known in short as ‘60 Reasons’) to Carter-Ruck

· To deliver up all hard copies of the leaflet entitled “What really happened to Madeleine McCann? 10 key reasons which suggest that she was not abducted

· To destroy any electronic version of ‘What really happened to Madeleine McCann? 60 key reasons which suggest that she was not abducted”.

· To destroy any electronic version of the leaflet entitled “What really happened to Madeleine McCann? 10 key reasons which suggest that she was not abducted

· To close our website, whose domain name was: www.madeleinefoundation.org‘

· To use my best endeavours to delete or otherwise prevent access to any and all defamatory allegations about the Claimants published by him on the website http://missingmadeleine.forumotion.net

· To use my best endeavours to delete or otherwise prevent access to any and all defamatory allegations about the Claimants published by him on the website http://democracyforum.co.uk

· To use my best endeavours to delete or otherwise prevent access to any and all defamatory allegations about the Claimants published by him on the website http://www.anorak.co.uk

· To use my best endeavours to delete or otherwise prevent access to any and all defamatory allegations about the Claimants published by him on the website www.truthformadeleine.com

· To pay £440.00 towards the Defendant’s costs [subsequently reduced to £400.00.]

Why is it wrong to suggest that Madeleine may not have been abducted?

As long as you didn't actually add that you thought her parents had done something awful I can't see why that thought wouldn't be considered in the general scheme of things. I know some folks aren't keen on the idea but she may actually have got out of the apartment and could have wandered aomewhere where she came to harm. Cover the abduction angle of course but not to the detriment of all other angles and if you do that suggesting that she may not have been abducted is not such a bad thing surely.

The other one I find a bit odd is you reading out the questions. Ok fair dues and at a risk of offending, you did look and sound creepy as anything in my opinion when you did it, but it is common knowledge that she didn't answer those questions so it isn't something you are making up so how come that found its way on the list? Or have I missed the obvious?

I feel TB should photograph the limousine driving up delivering those files as well as photograph those expensive and expansive files that he has to work through in order to prepare his defence. He should then ask the Judge for permission to show them as exhibits.

Apart from the obvious to the Judge that it a colossal task for TB to cope with those documents alone, all those have to be paid for by the plaintiff, which clearly shows the disparity of financial resources between litigant and defendant.

This is a country where free speech is a given, and not something you have to fight for against the rich who try to take away your human right. .
Until the mystery of Maddie disappearance is known and solved, who is to say no one can purport a theory.
Even the mccanns only have a theory - surely they dont' know what exactly happened to Madeleine, or do they? So, if they can purport a theory, why cant people also purport a theory?

Even Gerry said publicly at the LI that he believes in free speech and people are free to purport theories...so why are they acting to the contrary ? Would it be libellous to say it's a[i] mystery why they have to resort to legal force to shut down people's purported theory?

Good to see TB is keeping his spirt up.

I bet the mccanns are dead pleased with themselves, and their financial ability to sue all and sundry, while Maddie is still missing amidst their litigation actions. One thing is guaranteed - they wont find Maddie in Court rooms.
So one is left wondering what is their objective in all these litigations? They should use their money on the search as they purported, and not on lawyers - lawyers are not going to get them back Maddie no matter what.
It's the Police who can do that. They should work with Police and not lawyers if they want Maddie back.

It appears to me, that only a person who was very unsure of their case, must resort to cheap theater tricks such as sending boxes of files in a limousine. This is how circus magicians behave, it is all a show, to confuse and fool the audiences.

I am so sorry to hear this Tony. That it can come to this point where a decent and caring person cannot even question the fate of a small child, let alone all the rest of the performance, shows where we as a civilisation let alone a country, have fallen. Madeleine has a good friend in you, and I agree with jd's words completely

I often wonder what the family/friends/neighbours of K & G really think about them behind their backs. Do they all believe them without a doubt, do they (the family i.e. parents, cousins, grandparents) even have a doubt in the back of their minds that all is not well with the fairytale abduction being told to them. Do they agree wholeheartedly with K & G suing and ruining the lives of Sr Amaral and Tony Bennett.

They must have very cold hearts and souls if they do not question what is infront of them for one second.

If any one of them had any doubt or overheard something that even slightly gives them the idea that Madeleine was not abducted, I wonder if they would have the guts to inform the police. Oh how I would love to be a fly on their walls, probably me and everyone else on this forum come to think about it.

I bet the relatives/friends/neighbours of K & G follow all the forums on the internet, maybe one of them may search their soul and reveal something that they may not be happy about that has been mentioned on one of the forums that may stop Sr Amaral and Tony been completely destroyed.

I couldn't agree more about the family and friends and neighbours. However much I love my daughter, and I do, if anything so weird happened to a defenceless child while she was in charge, and she couldn't come up with a more plausible explanation than what we have been fed, I would pursue the truth to the ends of the earth, even if she ended up in prison as a result. And particularly if I purported to be a devout Catholic, which incidentally I try to be, i would be in terrible fear for the immortal soul of said daughter.
