Timeline May 2008

Post by tigger on 22.07.13 10:10

This month the we will/ we won't go to the reconstruction is still playing. The lifting of the arguido status, getting hold of the PJ files (well in advance of their publication) a fairly subdued anniversary - no presents for Maddie that year. ITV teams up with Expresso, documentary is sold and aired. Arguido status still a bugbear, T&T magazine taken to court by TM. Very busy with the European amber alert.
A more interesting month than I thought.

Madeleine McCann's parents fear she could end up like the secret family Josef Fritzl kept captive in an underground dungeon in Austria, they revealed today.
(In an appearance on Sky News the McCanns were asked if the shocking case gave them a glimmer of hope, as proof that it was possible for someone missing so long to still be alive.
Mr McCann replied: "It's an interesting concept isn't it? And of course Austria has had the other case of Natascha Kampusch who was missing for eight years.")

Parents of missing British girl Madeleine McCann appeal to kidnappers: Call us
MSNUK News
Published online: May 01, 2008 at 21:40
The parents of missing British girl Madeleine McCann have appealed to her kidnappers to return their daughter on the one-year anniversary of her disappearance from a Portuguese resort.
 
Kate and Gerry McCann have begun a new phase of their search for Madeleine with the launch of a telephone hotline they hope will produce new information.
 [..]
 The couple have produced a documentary and are conducting interviews as part of a new media offensive to mark the anniversary.


SIC TV  1/5
18 Interviews


Yesterday, Maddie's parents gave 18 interviews to the media.
Note: Expresso (newspaper) and SIC (TV channel), belong to Pinto Balsemão.
 
ITV and SIC made a deal, in which ITV sold the 'Maddie, One Year On: Campaign For Change' documentary to SIC as an exclusive, if certain conditions were met.
 

It was therefore unsurprising that the McCanns' subsequent interview with SIC was very sympathetic, whereas the RTP interview, with Sandra Felgueiras, was hard hitting.

A year after the disappearance of Madeleine McCann and nine months after the collection of biological vestiges, the sophisticated and prestigious forensic lab of Birmingham, in England, did not send yet to the PJ the final reports of all the analysis.[..]
Apart from the results of the analysis made to the vestiges, the PJ has several depositions. An Irish that spent holidays with the family at Praia da Luz, in May last year, guaranteed to the PJ that he saw a man with a child in his lap in the night of 3rd of May. Later he said informally that that man seemed to be Gerry McCann.
[..]
The investigators opted to listen again to the witnesses but decided that the depositions would be made through rogatory letters sent to the Leicester police.
Before this step was fulfilled, in April, this family was contacted by detectives of Método 3. The JN discovered that since that contact the certainties of the Smiths ended.

McCanns: It's still no to a rerun       The People
By Marc Baker
18 May 2008
Defiant Kate and Gerry McCann have rejected a new plea to help re-create the night their daughter Maddie vanished.
 
The couple had a tense showdown with Portuguese cops last week.
After refusing to fly back, they have now been told to reply "within days" to yet another request for them to attend a reconstruction in two weeks.
But sources say they will again say no.
Police want Kate, 40, and Gerry, 39, and their Tapas Seven pals to return.
But the couple have "grave reservations" about cops' motives.
 
They fear police aren't interested in finding Maddie and only want to charge them with neglect over the disappearance of Maddie, now five, in Praia da Luz last May.
 
Spokesman Clarence Mitchell said: "They're still considering what to do."

According to a senior British police officer from Enderby, in Leicestershire, "Kate and Gerry McCann have established an agreement with their seven friends to prevent the realisation of the reconstruction request by the Portuguese authorities."

This is the first judiciary dispatch that is not covered by the judicial secrecy, that assumes that the investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann contains the suspicions of crimes of homicide, exposure, abandonment and concealment of a cadaver.

McCanns in fury after 14 txts slur Daily Mirror
By Martin Fricker
29/05/2008
Gerry McCann reacted angrily yesterday to claims he received a string of mystery texts the day before his daughter vanished.


The Shields Gazette
Web vote result 30/05/2008
MISSING Madeleine McCann's parents should face child neglect charges, according to our latest online poll.
 

We told yesterday how Portuguese police are considering charging Kate and Gerry McCann with child neglect.
Our poll asked:
 
Are Portuguese police right to consider charging the McCanns with child neglect?
 
The result was: 
Yes: 92 per cent
 No: 8 per cent
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
That's it for May, full texts available on McCannfiles.com. Those three posed photos of Kate trying her best to look soulful are such thundering bad taste that I'm surprised she hasn't co-opted Cuddlecat to take it into the realm of the truly horrendous.
Cuddlecat was used on a similar photoshoot in PdL.

The Mccann's are, and, obviously, know, some intelligent and influential people.

What has bothered me, from the start, is that the Mccann's, (who seem very reluctant to admit anything), were prepared to admit that they left 3 vulnerable children alone, on so many occasion's. They must have realised, that they would be seen as, potential monster's, by the majority of parent's around the World, by that action.

It is possible, ( if you believe self preservation is their main aim), that accepting the public fury over their, possible, neglect was actually the lesser of two evil's. Even if you don't agree, it has to be, at least, a possibility. Doesn't it?

If you can get your head around that thought and accept it as a possibility, the question then become's...What could possibly have happened, for them to be prepared to take so much condemnation, and vilification, about their parenting skill's? There must have been lot's of serious implication's, by not doing so.. 

Just a possibility.

Just a possibility.

Imo it's very likely that they thought the 'neglect' would be a minor factor in the whole scheme.

The reasons were:
1) The 'listening' service of MW in Greece which had been used by some of their friends with no problems. (I've never believed that - if DP and ROB took monitors why not in Greece as well?
It's interesting that DP stated he had a monitor, but for some reason JT and ROB had to pretend they didn't until the rogs)
2) It was like being in your back garden (sometimes even in your neighbour's back garden)  i.e. 'everybody's done that'.
3) they did much better than the above listening service by visually checking
4) they ALL did it  (another point I do not believe - imo none of the T 7 left their children alone in their apartment)
5) they could see the  apartment from the Tapas Bar (only the balcony - the children's room was on the other side)
6) everybody's left their children alone at some time - spreading the blame very wide here.
7) they're doctors! they know what's good for us - they would never put anyone in harm's way.

It's illuminating to read Gerry's comment less than a year later  'it's boring'. In one of the Swedish interviews we're told by Gerry ' ...it was a collective mistake'.

Imo they never thought so much was going to be made of the neglect factor. They must have thought it was a minor hurdle. Their main defence is that MW did it in Greece but MW didn't do it in PdL so clearly it's all the fault of MW.

Poor little babes in the woods, they did what they could - but at worst - as Gerry is fond of telling us they were 'naive'!! There you are again MW's fault for making them think that a listening service is sufficient.

Main information from the above:

The Smiths would have been part of the rogatories - once they were contacted by Metodo3 they were suddenly no longer sure about their fairly detailed statements.

Maddie's fifth birthday was not one where presents were supplied by the twins - that bit of melodrama must have been spun later. By all accounts her room must now be stacked to the ceiling with unopened presents.

The first official document is leaked and published in The Times. It concerns the phone calls.
Those 14 texts 'leaked' from the files have always bothered them, this is the first instance after the leak.

The PJ had to wait NINE months for the complete DNA results.

So when did the present giving on the birthday begin?

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.
