6 Directors remaining namely

Kate Mccann
Gerry Mccann
Brian Kennedy
Edward Smethurst
Jon Corner
Michael Linett

Far as we know the top 5 are in the same boat, so who is Michael Linett and how is he related to the Mccanns?

Interestingly the Audited Accounts was signed by Brian Kennedy.
Generally, it is common practice that the person actively administering and monitoring the Fund would sign the accounts.
So why is BK interested in the running and operation of the Fund? Hasn't he got anything else better to do?

But with the name Smethurst also on that same piece of paper excuse me if I don’t just raise a monkey eyebrow.

Brian Kennedy the Uncle ?
The one who said right from the start that the "Fund" WOULD be used mostly for legal fees ?
I wish there were some reporters with the guts to ask the supplementary question "What the Hell are you talking about ?"

I thought the Uncle resigned long ago and returned to work. He was the first to leave the Fund, followed by a few others.

No, that was John McCann GM's brother, and Doug Skehan who resigned in July and August 2010. Brian Kennedy the uncle has been on the board since the beginning, or almost the beginning I think.

ETA I think BK is retired.

Brian Kennedy, this one, is an uncle of Kate, so great uncle of the twins/Madeleine, he is a retired head teacher.

All these Brian Kennedys are still causing confusion!

Here's a reminder of the uncle's comment that the money was likely to be used mainly for legal expenses.

http://mccannfundfraud.info/2011/05/brian-kennedy-admits-madeleine-fund-was-for-legal-expenditure/

It's also interesting to hear that Gerry's spirits were lifted by the setting up of the fund. Thanks Eileen for that little gem!

It is strange about this case though, that we have 2 Brian Kennedy's involved with the fund in one way or another, 2 Michael Wrights driving the same Renault, and 2 McCanns one owning apartment, one renting.......any more??

Thanks Ribisi for the accounts. So they've managed to spend nearly half a million pounds in a year on merchandising and campaign costs. Wow.

I also see for last year there is no mention as in the previous years of using the fund to bring legal proceedings in Portugal.

All in the family anyway. Jon Corner is Maddie's godfather if I am not wrong.
Apart from Edward Smethurst who is their in-house lawyer, Michael Linett is the only independent(?) Director.

Logically a Fund like that should not have family members as directors.

Of course it goes without saying that countless parents of children who have vanished home and abroad neither needed nor asked for a penny in legal expenses, not because they could afford to settle the bills themselves they simply had no need for lawyers nor could foresee any plausible reason why they should.
But Ger’s mum tells us her little boy’s spirits picked up at the launch of the fund.

So, not being very clever with accounts can someone explain in plain English what is what? Book proceeds around 350,000 is that correct or have I got it wrong.

According to these articles book sales totalled nearly a million, and the serialisation in the Sun paid the McCanns around £500,000 Then there was the book advance, does that come out of the sales?

Madeleine McCann Missing: Kate McCann Book About Disappearance Raises Almost £1m

http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2012/05/02/madeleine-mccann-kate-mccann-book-disappear-raise-1m_n_1470227.html



From Rebakah Brookes evidence at Leveson re book serialisation..............

Gerry McCann told the inquiry that they were initially "horrified" about the serialisation, but were later convinced after News International pledged to back their campaign if they agreed to the serialisation.

Brooks can't remember how much News International paid for the book serialisation.

"Hundreds of thousands. It wasn't £1m. Half a million maybe?"

She adds: "I had always got on very well with Gerry and Kate McCann. I think if asked they would be very positive about the Sun. In this case I thought Dominic Mohan's idea to run the campaign, this review of Madeleine's case by the home secretary, was the right thing to do … I don't think I spoke to Theresa May directly. Dominic [Mohan] may have done."

For the years 2009, 2010 and 2011, Stephenson Harwood are listed as company solicitors along with Bates Wells and Braithwaite. In 2012 BWB is listed as company secretary in the name of BWB Secretarial Ltd.

I don't know why a small company would need two firms of solicitors.

Any thing can be hidden under "Merchandising & Campaign" really.
Have we seen the merchandise they marketed in 2012 that is worth 1/2 million? I don't believe so!
Half a million pounds worth of merchandise is hell of a lot of money.
Even if we were to allow half that for campaign, did they do any campaign in 2012 -- after the Review was well underway? I dont believe so!
They might have spin a little in the Press but no real campaign far as I know that would cost that kind of money.

This set of accounts is even less transparent than previous years.
Of course there would be legal fee pertaining to the proceedings in Portugal somewhere in the accounts, just hidden under different heading. Else who paid or would be paying those bills - you can bet your bottom dollar it wont be the mccanns.

We only have CR's words that Fund won't be used for their fees but unless their books are opened for inspection no one is going to be any wiser.

That begs the question just WHO is footing their legal bills and WHY? What is in it for him?
This in itself is highly unusual in a case like this - that a total stranger would pick up the legal tabs for someone not known to him priorly!
Is he just being generous, a plain good samaritan's gesture? Or something else?
It leaves you wondering why he didn't use the money for the Search instead of wasting it suing people as suing people wont bring her back.
Their priority is reversed, unless they already knew she is dead hence search is total waste of money whereas suing people is their priority to stop the truth from coming out.

Mr Linnett serves as a director(trustee) on that charity for 35 years
but resigns after 6 months as a director of the Fund.......interesting

Lifted that from the Michael Linnett thread. So why did he suddenly give up being trustee of Catholic Charity : Faith in Families (adoption agency) after 35 years on it to become a permanent fixture in a much smaller Co. ie the Mccanns Fund?
It just does not make sense. He could well have remained as trustee of both and who's going to complain?

BK is freemason, Michael Linnett is also freemason, so is Edward Smethurst. No wonder it is such a watertight cover up.
