Yum! Full of interesting information such as this: 

1:36-- De almeida: british police kept information about the mcanns to themselves.

1:39-- De almeida: Forensic lab technicians from birmingham came to portugal so it is strange concerns were raised about contamination.

1:53-- De almeida: british authorities other than police hindered investigation by withholding information.

1:54-- De almeida: when we asked uk for info on mccanns we got a single side of a4.

2:05-- The mcanns' lawyer is getting quite worked up in her cross examination of de almeida

2:09-- The mcanns' lawyer is rebuked for saying de almeida was accused of torturing suspects - he was never charged.

Lasciate ogni speranza, voi ch'entrate.

I wonder if SY have seen these texts that were not allowed as they were never admitted as evidence.........

11:20-- The first witness is being called by videoconference.

11:23-- It is the attorney who was in charge of the original inqury into Madeleine's disappearance, Jose Magalhaes e Menezes.

11:57-- He claimed that although the parents had been checking on Madeleine, it was not as often as every 30 minutes.

12:01-- Police intercepted text messages sent by the McCanns because they were suspicious of the parents' role in Madeleine's disappearance.

12:02-- The text messages sent by Kate and Gerry were never admitted as evidence gathered as part of the investigation.

12:38-- Who suggested the checking of the McCanns' text messages, Mr Menezes is asked. The police, he replies.

12:39-- The text messages were never considered as part of the investigation because the judge did not allow it, the court hears.

What's betting the contents of deleted text messages were incriminating, else what would be the point of Police trying to use it in Court? Think about it!

The deny in permission for use in Court may be due to a technical flaw rather than lack of merits.
I'm guessing the Portuguese law obliges that Police operation carried out must be guided /led/cleared by Public Prosecutors Office (CPS equivalent), hence evidence gathered without strict adherence to this procedure breaches the rules hence can't be used.

If that be the case, then there is no reason why this evidence cant be used by CPS.

Blood and cadaver alerts

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
