Russell O'Brien's aide memoir?

Post by Kepharel on 20.07.13 9:15

From the Rogatory:
 
I wish to add that Jane’s statement covered our routine from the 28th April 2007-2nd May 2007 quite comprehensively and my original Portuguese statement referred to Jane’s statement, this was therefore a good point of reference for me.
  
1578    “So that is an addition'”
Reply    “It says, erm, ‘I have been given the opportunity to refresh my memory from the statement made from Jane TANNER’, she is not actually legally my wife we are just, we are just partners, erm, ‘and I’ve been allowed to see the documents’.  I asked to see her document because my original statement to the PJ, erm, made reference, I think for the Monday to the Wednesday especially, to Jane’s and it was not written in any detail in mine.  Does that make sense'”
 
11th May PJ Interview
 
- Questioned regarding his routine during the holidays, he confirms in all of his previous declarations and that his version is absolutely in line with his companion's Jane Tanner. He also verifies in the total conformity between his declarations and those of Jane Tanner regarding the holiday trip, of the constitution of the group and of the daily routine of the adults and the children which accompanied this group in the tourist complex, the Ocean Club, in Praia da Luz-Lagos.


- He made note of the activities on the 3rd of May p.p.. This note consists of all the facts presented, of his activities and those of the group. They are in accordance with the version already represented by his wife, Jane Tanner.


Off topic... I am beginning to timeline RO, having finished DW's statements with regard to 2nd and 3rd of May.  They will need to be formatted in the presentation I adopted in the DW post, and that will be in a day or two.  To save clogging up the forums with this kind of stuff, if anyone is interested, maybe I could just mail you

I love the

she is not actually legally my wife we are just, we are just partners,

IIRC somewhere else he says "she is not actually legally my wife she is just the mother of my children",

Every single one of the Tapas bunch shows over and over again what an uncouth boors they are.

I had taken Matt's keys and I believe that their door was deadlocked the same as ours and that I would have needed to turn the key two times. We kept our shutters down, and the patio door was closed I am not sure whether theirs was the same. I recall that Kate and Gerry's apartment was accessed by the patios door which was left closed and unlocked. I recall that their front door was accessed from the car-park access was easily gained to the apartment from the poolside.

I believe they deliberately set out to contradict themselves as much, and as often as they could on minor points, to enable them to change their stories ad lib.
Should they then incriminate themselves, they would have the added - albeit dubious - protection of many other seemingly innocent incorrect statements. This, Imo, and their deliberate vagueness, was a huge part of their plan.

Great work so far, kepharel, and HelenMeg

I think what will useful from such a review is a clear account of when ROB last saw Madeleine (and of course when each of the other 7 last saw Madeleine)...contradictions and all (e.g. DP or was it FP ?) etc

This is where it will unravel IMO

My theory is that RO  attended to M whilst she was dying. He is used to working on an emergency ward and skilled in dealing with medical emergencies.
Hence the heavy involvement of JT.
