I would think that going by the photo below, I should perhaps be put in the 'NUTTY' box.

But I rather think they would be more inclined to put me in the 'NASTY' box:

But according to a new Channel 5 documentary Halligen’s operatives may end up solving the mystery. They identified as the prime suspect a man seen heading towards the beach in Praia da Luz, Portugal, clutching a sleeping blonde girl around 10pm the night Madeleine vanished.
Halligen’s investigators convinced the Irish family who saw her to help produce an e-fit. That man is now the Metropolitan Police’s No1 suspect.

Looks like the Irish family weren't the only ones to be 'convinced' by Halligen’s investigators!

Smiths saw him taking the body that night somewhere and later in the morning .....this

 76 A George Brooks saw a couple at 5:55 on the morning of May 4th on his way between Lagos and Praia da Luz
77 The man was carrying a child
78 At this time the McCanns had left the apartment and were somewhere in the vicinity of Praia da Luz
79 They had left the apartment around 5:00 when the police and all search groups had left the area

Is that before or after the alleged visit by a double glazing salesman?  It would be best if the documentary conceal a particular operatives grief because he wasn't paid for his labours, it might look like an act of revenge?

'The Man Who Conned The McCanns'.

Looks like the title has been changed. I wonder why?

I will look on Sky's 7 day listings later this evening to see what it says on there.

Thanks Silverspeed.

I am sure this wording is different too.

"
With unprecedented access, this film looks at Operation Omega, the secret private investigation to find missing child Madeleine McCann in 2008. Following the investigation set up by security consultant Kevin Halligen, this one-off documentary features exclusive interviews with ex-MI5 undercover operatives, the FBI and ex-military personnel.
As the investigation went on, it transpired that Kevin Halligen was not a spy but one of the world’s most audacious conmen. Despite this, significant information and leads uncovered from Operation Omega have gone on to forma part of the current Scotland Yard inquiry to find out what happened to Madeleine McCann.
Featuring interviews and evidence never before seen or heard, including an interview with Halligen himself, this film tells an untold story about the search for Madeleine McCann"

I see Sky's epg has it listed under the original title at the moment.

Be interesting to see if this changes.

Think this was because Portuguese law doesn't allow private investigations to take place whilst an active investigation is on- going. So it had to be "secret"

You have to question why this documentary is focusing on Halligen.

Exton (ex-GMP) was delegated the work as a major investor in Oakley and now it is claimed SY are using their findings as the basis for OG.

I wonder if this doc is TM furiously spinning to get their version out there?

They knew Portuguese law forbids parallel investigation, yet that did not stop them breaching it or urging the public to send them money for their private search. It cant have been a secret when their hire of PIs had been given wide coverage in the MBM, with all the pseudo-sightings, bogus characters and evolving abductor plastered all over most of the titles on a constant basis. The Portuguese certainly knew of it.

PIs works are generally carried out discretely anyway.
I am thinking the press might be hinting at sinister reason behind their hiring of PIs.

Trailed just now on tv break channel 5... THE McCANNS AND THE CONMAN :

  how did he get the most significant breakthrough in the case?


 If there was a proposed title change, I can see why. The Man who Conned the McCanns gives an immediate image of the pair as victims. The McCanns and the Conman is more ambiguous, making a person ask, after taking it at face value....conned by him, or allied with him?

First, though, an extract from my summary bio of Kevin Halligen from page 1 of this thread:

QUOTE


2007 - Halligen apparently describing himself as LLP/Attorney, working for Patton Boggs

2007 3 May (Aged 45) – Madeleine reported missing

2007 – Forms Oakley International

REST SNIPPED - UNQUOTE

From the above, we see these connections:

[SNIPPED]

Another point to consider, finally, is that Halligen and Exton's company 'Oakley International', once wholly falsely described by 'a source close to the McCanns' as 'the big boys of international private detection', was founded only AFTER Madeleine was reported missing; in June 2007 IIRC. It raises the question of whether Oakley might even have been formed with the disappearance of Madeleine McCann in mind.

The above statement of mine has been challenged on a forum noted for describing those seeking the truth about Madeleine McCann as 'hounders'.

This was their allegation:

The truth [Quote from a newspaper account in the mainstream media]:

When Halligen breezed into Washington about 2005
, one of his first calls, according to associates, was to Patton Boggs, the heavyweight law firm. He hired the firm to help set up his new U.S. business, Oakley International, which offered risk analysis and security advice to corporate customers.

Of course Bennett has never let the truth get in the way of his guesses which turn out to be false.

Poor research, Bennett. Very poor.

So who did the Due Diligence on a recently invented one man operation
Mitchell ?
The McCanns themselves ?
The Directors of the "Fund" ?
Bates, Wells, Braithwaite, ?
Haysmcintyre ?

Because who ever was supposed to is clearly guilty of gross negligence, and might be liable to the "Fund" for any consequential financial loss

If of course anyone could be bothered to do anything about it.
It wasn't their money after all, just Old Aged Pensions and little children's pocket money.
Lots more where that came from.

I wouldn't be surprised, if not-uncle BK was heavily involved in the selection of Halligen, as well as Metodo 3 and maybe even the next-to-non-existing Alpha operation ... If ever "whitewash" came to my mind, it would be here. Unfortunately, Halligen spent it all for himself and Exton came up with a real report.
