Russell O'Liar 2

Deutsch/English

Eine Änderung in der Aussage Russells verdient meiner Meinung nach besondere Aufmerksamkeit:


Original: The Nannies had brought the children up for readiness for tea, I can’t say if I saw Madeleine when E came back’
Geändert: I collected E*** from the Ocean Club before she went up to tea at the Tapas Bar, I cannot say whether Madeleine was there or not.


In seiner ersten Aussage beschreibt er wie die Nannies die Kinder, inklusive seiner Tochter Exxx, am Nachmittag des 3. Mai vom Kinderclub zum Tapas Restaurant brachten. Dies geschah normalerweise gegen 16:45 und anschliessend gab es zwischen 17:00 und 17:30 Abendessen dort für die Kinder. Sein Focus in der ersten Aussage liegt darauf, zu erklären, dass er Madeleine dabei nicht gesehen hat. Dabei "vergisst" er, dass er lt. Plan gar nicht dabei war. Der Plan besagte, dass er Exxx bereits bevor die Kinder den Kinderclub verlassen hatten, von dort abgeholt hatte, und dass sie daher NICHT am Abendessen teilnahm.

Dummerweise gibt er bei der Schilderung des Nachmittags aber an, dass er erst gegen 16:30 vom Segeln an den Strand kam und dann noch im Meer schwimmen ging. Er kann also kaum Exxx noch vor 16:45 im Kinderclub abgeholt haben.

Das Alibi für den Nachmittag besteht zum Teil aus der Aufzeichnung der Überwachungskamera im Restaurant Paraiso am Strand, wo die ganze Gruppe ausser den McCanns für Drinks zusammenkam und um den Kindern etwas zum Abendessen zu servieren. Wie aus den Aufzeichnungen zu sehen ist, erscheint Russell aber erst um 17:52 das erste mal in diesem Restaurant.

Wie viel wahrscheinlicher ist daher die Annahme, dass er sehr wohl zum Abendessen der Kinder im Tapas Restaurant war, zusammen mit Kate, Gerry, den Zwillingen und Exxx? Beim Verlassen der Tapas Rezeption gegen 17:30 wurde 'Madeleine' aus der Anwesenheitsliste des Kinderclubs ausgetragen, während Exxxs Eintrag leer blieb und später von der Nanny nachträglich ausgefüllt wurde. Die Köchin erinnerte sich später an die nette Familie mit den Zwillingen und der älteren Tochter. Exxx sah Madeleine von allen Kindern am ähnlichsten, war gleich alt und gleich groß. Hatten die Freunde daher so vehement protestiert, dass es nicht Russell O'Brien mit Madeleine war, der den Tisch im Tapas Restaurant gebucht hatte, wie es die Rezeptionistin aussagte? Weil es eigentlich Russell mit Exxx war und die Ähnlichkeit verschwiegen werden musste?

Jedenfalls hatte Russell dann genug Zeit um zwischen 17:30 und 17:52 im Paraiso zu erscheinen und sich der Kamera dort zu präsentieren. Und vielleicht noch mit seiner Tochter auf den Schultern ein Tänzchen zu wagen, was später vom Besitzer des Restaurants falsch an die Zeitungen verkauft wurde. Damit bereits die dritte Verwechslung der beiden Mädchen.

Dies ist eine Theorie, die sich aus den Diskrepanzen und Änderungen der Aussagen ergibt und versucht diese zu interpretieren. Hätte es diese umfassenden Diskrepanzen und Änderungen nicht oder nur in minimalem Umfang gegeben, bestünde keine Notwendigkeit, diese zu erklären.

------------------------------------------------------

One of the changes in Russell's statement deserves special attention in my opinion:

Original: The Nannies had brought the children up for readiness for tea, I can’t say if I saw Madeleine when E came back’
Geändert: I collected E*** from the Ocean Club before she went up to tea at the Tapas Bar, I cannot say whether Madeleine was there or not.

In his first statement he describes how the nannies brought the children, including his daughter Exxx, from the kid's club to the Tapas restaurant in the afternoon of May 3rd. This usually happened around 16:45 followed by the children's dinner in the Tapas between 17:00 and 17:30. In this first statement his focus is to explain that he did not see Madeleine when the children were brought back. In doing so he "forgets" that according to their original statements he had never been there. All previous statements claim that he had already collected Exxx before the children had left the children's club and that she therefore did NOT take part at the children's dinner.

Unfortunately though while depicting the afternoon he had claimed that he only arrived back at the beach from his sailing trip at 16:30 and then had gone for a swim in the ocean. Almost impossible for him to have collected Exxx before 16:45 from the kid's club.

The alibi for the afternoon consists partly in the recording of the CCTV camera in the Paraiso beach restaurant where the whole group apart from the McCanns had drinks together and served their children dinner. But as can be seen from the recordings, Russell is seen for the first time at 17:52 in this restaurant.

How much more likely is the assumption that he actually did take part in the children's dinner at the Tapas restaurant together with Kate the twins and Exxx? That when they left the Tapas reception around 17:30 'Madeleine' was signed out on the creche list of the kid's club, while Exxx's entry stayed empty and was later filled out by the nanny? The cook later remembered the nice family with the twins and the older daughter. Exxx resembled Madeleine most from all the other kids, same age and height. Was this the reason for the protest when the receptionist stated that Russell O'Brien together with Madeleine had booked the Tapas table? Because in fact it had been Russell with Exxx and the similarity had to be covered-up?

In any case Russell had enough time to arrive at the Paraiso between 17:30 and 17:52 in front of the CCTV camera. And possibly had a little dance with Exxx on his shoulders as wrongly attributed to Gerry by the owner of the restaurant when he sold this story to the media. This was already the third mix-up between the two girls.

This is a theory that results from the discrepancies and changes in the statement and that tries to interpret these. Had there not been such extensive discrepancies and changes there would be no necessity to try and explain them.

Celebrations

english/deutsch

This month sees the celebration of a Saint's day on November 25th. In France and other countries it is a custom to wear yellow-green ribbons in honor of the Saint. Yellow-green as in the wristbands that have so successfully been sold in a certain online shop to commemorate the disappearance of a little girl five years ago.

I am going to do a little online survey about what Saint you think is honored by wearing yellow-green ribbons:

A Saint Madeleine
B Saint Catherine

your answers via twitter please, if it is still a surprise for you.


-----------------------------------------


Feierlichkeiten

In diesem Monat wird am 25. November eine bestimmte Heilige gefeiert. In Frankreich und anderen Ländern ist es Brauch zu Ehren der Heiligen gelb-grüne Bänder zu tragen. Gelb-grün wie die Armbänder, die so erfolgreich in einem bestimmten Online Shop verkauft wurden zum Andenken an das Verschwinden eines kleinen Mädchens vor fünf Jahren.

Ich werde eine kleine Online Abfrage durchführen, was ihr denkt, welche Heilige durch das Tragen von gelb-grünen Bändern geehrt wird:

A Heilige Madeleine
B Heilige Katharina

eure Antworten bitte über Twitter, wenn es noch Irgendjemanden überrascht.

Dog's don't lie....in the US (Update)

Martin Grime on the witness stand at Bianca Jones's murder trial.

Prosecutors say dog's detection of human decomposition points to murder of Bianca Jones




Yet Gerry McCann, expert on dogs, finds them compleeeetely unreLIEable.... ..... although Eddie gave a positive response to Kate's clothes


-----------------------

UPDATE

D'Andre Lane found guilty of murder in death of daughter Bianca Jones

Dogs don't lie..... in Wales

Apparently they only lied in Portugal. Btw: Why is April Jones declared as having been murdered after 5 days yet Madeleine McCann is still "alive and findable" after 5 years, despite the overwhelming evidence of the cadaver dogs finding scent at 9 different places/items?

The Gaspar Scare



English/Deutsch

The only mention of the Gaspar Statement in the media
Having come across my spreadsheet with the timeline of the whole case and filling in some bits and pieces today, I noticed something regarding the Gaspar statement I find odd.

I was always undecided about whether it was genuine concern of a friend of Kate's or an attempt to get David Payne in line with the cover-up. Now if we look at the timeline we first noticed the quite long delay for Katharina Gaspar to decide going to the police. Almost two weeks in the case of a missing child seems a long time but was explained by the fact that she did not know until then that DP had been on the trip as well. Nevertheless, if we consider the described incident properly, Gerry McCann was as much part of the scenario as DP and therefore it should not have mattered to her much if DP was with them on holiday or not. Gerry's reaction to the alleged Payne incident would have warranted the same concerns even if he had been alone in PdL. Just remember how very cleverly DP had always been brought into the focus of the Gaspar statement and not so much Gerry, even from us...

Now if we look at the date Katharina finally dragged herself to the police station we see that it was the 16th May, exactly one day after Robert Murat was pictured on every paper in Britain as the most probable perpetrator.

If you are considering going to the police in a case you are not sure about, waiting 13 days until you muster up the courage, would you not hold back a couple of days more when you find out that they found the alleged abductor not connected to your suspicion at all? You would save yourself the trouble of a false accusation if he turned out the one who had taken Maddie.

Or did it rather take 6 days of organising and convincing of the Gaspars to get them to the police station after the botched 2nd questioning on May 10th of Gerry McCann at the police station where he felt the need to throw in David Payne with two concocted sightings of Madeleine, one during Wednesday night (!) and one on Thursday around 18:30. IMO two sightings he just made up during the interview because he had been pushed into a corner or felt the need to confirm Maddie's presence at those two points in time.

Imagine David's reaction when he told him about it, he might not have been amused...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nachdem ich heute meine Tabelle mit der Zeitschiene des Falls ein wenig auf Vordermann gebracht habe, ist mir etwas in Bezug zur Gaspar Aussage aufgefallen, dass ich merkwürdig finde.

Ich war mir nie sicher ob diese Aussage ernsthafter Sorge einer Freundin von Kate entsprang oder ein Versuch war, Druck auf David Payne auszuüben, der vielleicht nicht länger mitspielen wollte. Wenn man sich nun die Zeitschiene ansieht fällt einem als erstes die recht lange Zeitspanne auf, die Katharina Gaspar brauchte, um zur Polizei zu gehen. Fast zwei Wochen im Fall des verschwundenen Kindes einer Freundin scheinen eine lange Zeit zu sein, wurden aber damit erklärt, dass sie zuerst nicht wusste, ob DP überhaupt an dem Urlaub in Portugal teilgenommen hätte. Wenn man sich aber den geschilderten Vorfall genauer ansieht war Gerry McCann genauso Teil des Szenarios wie DP und daher hätte es für sie keine Rolle spielen dürfen ob DP mit in diesem Urlaub war oder nicht. Alleine die Tatsache wie Gerry auf die angeblichen Gesten reagierte sollte ihre Bedenken gerechtfertigt haben, auch wenn er alleine in Praia da Luz gewesen wäre. Man erinnere sich nur wie geschickt immer nur DP im Fokus der Gaspar Aussage stand und nie Gerry, sogar durch uns...

Wenn wir nun auf das Datum schauen, an dem Katharina sich endlich dazu aufraffte, die Polizei zu kontaktieren, sehen wir, dass es am 16. Mai war, genau einen Tag nachdem Robert Murat auf jeder Titelseite Englands als höchstwahrscheinlicher Täter publiziert worden war.

Wenn man sich mit dem Gedanken trägt zur Polizei zu gehen, in einem Fall in dem man nicht 100% sicher ist und damit 13 Tage wartet bis man sich ein Herz fasst, würde man dann nicht noch ein paar Tage mehr warten, wenn der angebliche Entführer plötzlich feststeht und nichts mit dem zu tun hat, was du der Polizei berichten willst? Man würde sich evtl. den Ärger einer falschen Beschuldigung ersparen, wenn er sich als der Entführer herausstellte.


Oder dauerte es eher 6 Tage der Planung und Überzeugungsarbeit um die Gaspars dazu zu bewegen zur Polizei zu gehen? 6 Tage nach der sehr unbequemen zweiten Befragung von Gerry McCann am 10. May durch die Polizei in Portimao wo er die Notwendigkeit sah, David Payne mit zwei angeblichen Sichtungen von Maddie ins kalte Wasser zu werfen - eine während der Nacht von Mittwoch auf Donnerstag und eine am Donnerstag gegen 18:30. M.M.n. zwei Sichtungen die Gerry ad hoc aus dem Hut zauberte während seiner Befragung entweder weil er in eine Ecke gedrängt wurde oder die Notwendigkeit sah Maddie's Präsenz zu diesen beiden Zeitpunkten zu bestätigen.

Stellt euch Davids Reaktion vor, als er ihm davon erzählte - er wird nicht erfreut gewesen sein...


Freitag, 20. Juli 2012



Ever noticed when the "clever marketing ploy" of the photografically enhanced "coloboma" that might have resulted in the removal of the eye by the abductor was abandoned? Nowhere to be seen again, replaced by a pathetic yellow-green ribbon.

Schon wieder Hunde...

Deutsch/Englisch

Ja ich weiß, in gewissen Kreisen hört man das Wort "Hund" nicht gerne, und "Spürhund" schon gar nicht. Wir wissen nun alle, dass Eddie und Keela unglaublich zuverlässig waren. Oder war es unzuverlässig? Ich werde noch einmal Gerry konsultieren müssen...

Jedenfalls kamen bisher Timmy, Sacha, Kolly, Oscar, Rusco und Rex viel zu kurz. Die portugiesischen Spürhunde, die am frühen Morgen des 4. Mai bereits angestrengt bei ihrer Arbeit waren, kommen sich im Schatten des großen Eddie und der hervorragenden Keela vielleicht wie arme unbeachtete Verwandte vor. Daher soll auch ihnen ein Kapitel gewidmet werden.

Besonders Timmy hatte seiner Rasse Ehre gemacht als ihm gegen 23:00 Uhr am 4. Mai vor dem Eingang zum Apartment 5A ein Badehandtuch von Madeleine präsentiert wurde. Vom Eingang des Apartments aus erschnupperte er sich den folgenden Weg, der von einem zweiten Spürhund anschliessend bestätigt wurde:


An der dort platzierten Straßenlampe schnüffelte er kurz, machte kehrt und ging den Weg wieder zurück.



Ich hatte schon länger die Vermutung gehegt, dass dieser Weg im ursprünglichen Plan vorgesehen war, denn dies war wirklich der Weg zum Kinderhort, zumindest eine "Abkürzung" auf kleinen dunklen Pfaden. Das Tragen eines schlafenden Kindes würde hier wohl nicht auffallen. Aber scheinbar brach der mögliche Träger seinen Weg genau an der Laterne ab.
Vielleicht weil auf dem Balkon von G606 die Herren Rajinder Balu und Neill Berry mit ihren Ehefrauen zu Abend aßen. Beide hätten wahrscheinlich den Träger vom Kinderclub her gekannt. Panikartiger Rückzug, wieder in das Gärtchen vor 5A.

So viel Pech gehört verboten. Dem Träger war sicher hundeelend...

--------------------------------------------------------

Dogs yet again...

Yes I know, the word "dog" is not appreciated in certain circles and "snifferdogs" is definitely not politically correct. We all know that Eddie and Keela were incredibly reliable. Or was it unreliable? I will have to consult Gerry again...

In any case, until now Timmy, Sacha, Kolly, Oscar, Rusco and Rex have been criminally neglected. The portuguese sniffer dogs who had been busy at work on the early morning of the 4th May probably feel like unloved relatives overshadowed by the great Eddie and the excellent Keela. Therefore I felt they needed their own chapter.

Especially Timmy did his breed some credit when he was presented at 23:00 on the 4th May in front of apartment 5A with a bath towel belonging to Madeleine. Starting at the entrance to 5A he sniffed out the following path: (see above)

At the only streetlamp placed in that carpark he sniffed more attentively, turned around and went back the way he had come.

I had previously suspected that the walk to the beach had been originally planned along the "shortcut" to the creche, following little dark lanes. Carrying a sleeping child would not have been unusual on that route. But the carrier apparently stopped his walk exactly at the lantern. Possibly because up on the balcony of 4G the families of Rajinder Balu and Neill Berry were dining together. Both might have recognised the carrier from earlier encounters at the kid's club. Panic, Retreat, back to the little gardin in front of 5A.

So much bad luck should be forbidden. The carrier was surely feeling sick as a dog...

EXCLUSIVE - 195 Leads revealed!!!

An independent investigation team consisting of an undisclosed number of case file analysts and interpreters, working for a pat on the back, have compiled what must surely be resembling much of the as yet undisclosed list of 195 leads painstakingly produced from a mass of evidence by the Scotland Yard investigation team.

After a careful review of all the evidence from the Portuguese police files and of course omitting spurious sightings, reports from mediums and clairvoyants, we finally came to the same conclusion as the highly paid SY team in that there is a 110% probability that Madeleine is either dead or alive, each possibility ranging around the 50% marker. We can also confirm that the theory of the parents' involvement is as much a conspiracy theory as the following list. We are convinced that the person who took Madeleine from the apartment, as seen by an Irish family of 7, is a criminal and should be treated as such. ASAP!

We therefore demand that the Portuguese plods pick up the investigation again where they dropped it in 2008 and start to investigate each of the 195 leads as regards to their possible significance. Or else campaigns will be started to urge people to refrain from ever listening to Fado again.


         DOGS

1 cadaver dog alerting behind sofa
2 blood dog alerting behind sofa
3 matter found behind sofa containing DNA
4 DNA re 3 All five markers found are 100% compatible with Madeleine's DNA profile
5 cadaver dog alerting to hired car
6 blood dog alerting to hired car
7 matter found in hired car containing DNA
8 DNA re 7 Fifteen of the markers are 100% compatible with Madeleine's DNA profile
9 cadaver dog alerting in parent's bedroom near wardrobe
10 cadaver dog alerting in flowerbed
11 cadaver dog alerting at carkey
12 cadaver dog alerting at white top belonging to mother
13 cadaver dog alerting at checkered trousers of mother
14 cadaver dog alerting at red t-shirt with planes motive
15 cadaver dog alerting at cuddle cat
16 blood dog alerting to car key
17 neither cadaver dog nor blood dog alerting at ANY other apartment or car

BREAK-IN





18 The shutters were not "jemmied" or forced open, as claimed by the parents
19 No signs of forced entry anywhere else in the apartment
20 No physical evidence of anyone having entered or left via the window
21 No lichen disturbance on the window sill
22 No fibres
23 No finger prints of an abductor on either window
24 No footprints on the bed
25 Only finger prints on the window are those of Kate
26 Changing statements as to the state of the curtains - opened/closed
27 Only a minute "window of opportunity" between Gerry seeing the shutter still closed and Jane spotting the abductor. A couple of minutes for opening the shutters, window and curtain, taking Madeleine, leaving the apartment, crossing the carpark and walking towards the street where he was seen.
28 Gerry changed his statement re point of entry at 21:04 from front door to patio door
29 Gerry claims Kate entered 5A through front door with key, Kate says patio door
30 Gerry changes his statement from Matt having seen closed shutters to Matt being unsure about the state of the shutters

SMITH SIGHTING


31 A family of 7 encounter a man carrying a child while going home from a pub at 22:00 on May 3rd.
32 The child is of Madeleine's age and height and resembles Madeleine
33 The man is of the same height, has the same hair and general appearance of Gerry McCann
34 Mr Smith is 60-80 % certain that the person they saw was Gerry McCann
35 Aoife Smith describes the pants of the man as having buttons as ornaments
36 Gerry McCann is photographed once as owning such pants
37 The time of the encounter is the exact same time as the alleged detection of the disappearance although latter is not corroborated by independent witnesses
38 The sighting - although reported once in an irish paper - is never picked up by british media or the McCanns although it would have been the best confirmation for an abduction.
39 Only two years later the Smith sighting becomes part of their "documentary" although the key points get changed to fit the Tanner sighting
40 Pressure put on the PJ to highlight the Tanner sighting came at exactly the same time as the Smith family were being brought back to Portugal to go over the sighting in more detail
41 The sighting was in a different part of town from the Tanner sighting
42 The carrying style was completely different to that of the Tanner sighting
43 The man was heading in a completely different direction from the Tanner sighting
44 There was a time difference of 45 minutes between both sightings
45 Goncalo Amaral was removed from the case just when he tried to get the Smiths to Portugal again
46 Brian Kennedy contacted the Smiths to get them to take part in creating a photofit.
47 No innocent person ever came forward regarding the sighting
48 The child was carried without a blanket despite the cold night

JANE TANNER SIGHTING

49 Regarding the sighting by Jane Tanner of the abductor none of the scent tracking dogs followed the trail indicated by Jane, but different routes
50 Jeremy Wilkins (independent witness) failed to spot the abductor, despite being only yards away, while chatting to Gerry
51 Jeremy Wilkins (independent witness) failed to see Jane Tanner walking by, despite being on the same narrow sidewalk at the same time
52 Gerry McCann failed to spot the abductor, despite being only yards away, while chatting to Jeremy
53 Gerry contradicted Jeremy by stating that their chat was on the opposite side of and about 30 yards down the road from that as described, and drawn on a map, by Mr Wilkins
54 Gerry also contradicted Tanner, by stating that his chat with Jeremy was on the opposite side of and about 30 yards down the road from that mentioned by Jane
55 Jane failed to spot the open window and shutters at Madeleine's bedroom while walking to her apartment at ~21.15
56 Jane failed to spot the open window and shutters at Madeleine's bedroom while walking from her apartment at ~21.20
57 Jane never bumped into Jeremy Wilkins (who had walked back to his apartment after the chat with Gerry) while walking back from her apartment at ~21.20
58 Russell O'Brien failed to spot the open window and shutters at Madeleine's bedroom while walking to his apartment at ~21.30
59 Matthew Oldfield failed to spot the open window and shutters at Madeleine's bedroom while walking to his apartment, which was right next door, at ~21.30
60 Matthew failed to spot the open window and shutters at Madeleine's bedroom while walking back from his apartment back to check on the McCann children
61 Matthew failed to spot the open window and shutters while checking on Madeleine and the twins
62 Jane failed to spot the open window and shutters at Madeleine's bedroom while walking to her apartment at ~21.45
63 Russell failed to spot the open window and shutters at Madeleine's bedroom while walking back from his apartment at ~21.50
64 Tanner's description of the abductor has changed several times
65 Tanner's description of the pyjama's worn by the child has improved with time
66 Gerry did not hear the raising of the shutters by the abductor while standing in the street with Wilkins
67 Jeremy Wilkins did not hear the raising of the shutters by the abductor while standing in the street with Gerry
68 The abductor failed to hear either Tanner, Gerry or Wilkins, and continued on the path that would put him in the full vision of all three
69 If the abductor had lifted Madeleine out of the bed, then he would be carrying her with her head to his right hand side, not on the left as in Tanner's claimed sighting
70 Although Gerry checked all rooms in the apartment during his check he did not spot the hiding abductor
71 The abductor did not raise the shutters while Gerry was inside the apartment
72 Jane was not only not seen by Gerry and Jeremy but also not heard although she was wearing flip-flops
73 Nobody ever mentioned the cars in the road but independent witnesses spoke of at least 2 cars parked close to the pavement where Gerry and Jez were standing, narrowing Jane's path so much that it was impossible she was not noticed by the two men.
74 Jane does not inform the parents of her sighting immediately. Only some of the friends
75 Although the friends know of her sighting their searches are directed in the opposite direction of where the abductor headed to.

GEORGE BROOKS SIGHTING

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
80 They were never asked where exactly they had gone
81 Kate claimed in her book they "resumed" their search that early morning although they never went searching the night before
82 The night before Gerry was overheard on his mobile talking about a gang of paedophiles having abducted Madeleine
83 The next day around 9:30 Kate claimed in a conversation with Yvonne Martin, a social worker, that Madeleine had been abducted by a childless couple

LAST TIME SEEN

84 In their statements the friends of the McCanns have difficulty to pinpoint the last time they saw Madeleine
85 Dianne Webster, whose statements are the only consistent ones, states she saw Madeleine on the 2nd May for the last time.
86 Kate McCann claims in her book that the 2nd May was the last happy day as a family of four. What about the 3rd?
87 The creche sheets are a mess, partly filled out by the nannies in retrospect, partly not at all. No credible evidence for the whereabouts of Madeleine
88 There are no reports about the creche activity in Madeleine's group for the afternoon of May 3rd
89 There are strong discrepancies regarding the morning activity of sailing undertaken by the creche
90 The nanny does not remember if she accompanied 5 (without Madeleine) or 6 (with Madeleine) children to the beach that morning
91 Whereas her first recollections are vague they improve one year later when she recollects an incident on one of the boats where Madeleine was crying.
92 The nanny could only have entered a boat with Madeleine by leaving 3 remaining children alone on the beach
93 Initially some of the friends claimed that Madeleine had taken part in the children's tennis on the morning of the 3rd
94 Madeleine and Ella were allegedly sailing while their parents and friends watched unknown children playing tennis on the court
95 Kate went back to the apartment on Tuesday to fetch her camera for the tennis court photo of Madeleine but never bothered to even watch her sailing
96 Even in 2008 Rachael Oldfield still claimed that Madeleine had been at the tennis on the morning of the 3rd
97 While Jane claims to have seen Madeleine at the sailing, Kate now states in her book that Fiona was unsure wether Madeleine had been at the sailing

CHANGES IN ROUTINE


98 Changes in the holiday routine mark May 3rd as a special day
99 While the McCanns claimed they had only ever attended breakfast once on the Sunday, six employees of the Millenium restaurant stated that they had attended regularly. Did they skip breakfast only on the 3rd?
100 Lunch was usually taken in the Payne's apartment with the whole group, but not on May 3rd
101 The whole group apart from the McCanns went to the beach that afternoon - and did not see Madeleine
102 The whole group apart from the McCanns did not attend the usual children's dinner on May 3rd - and did not see Madeleine there
103 The McCanns did not take part in the get together on the children's playground on May 3rd - so Madeleine was not seen by the rest of the group
104 Russell O'Brien collected his daughter from the creche before the children's dinner - but failed to notice if Madeleine was there or not

121 Jane Tanner claimed she had done a listening check on the Oldfield window on May 2nd although Rachael Oldfield was allegedly sick inside the apartment
122 Jane Tanner claimed that each apartment was checked every 15 minutes whereas the McCanns insist on checks every 30 minutes
123 Jane Tanner claimed that she knew Gerry had already been in the apartment when she encountered him talking to Jeremy Wilkins. How did she know that?

125 Jane Tanner never mentioned cars on the road while she saw the abductor
126 David Payne claimed that during his visit at 5A the patio door was open and he entered the apartment while Kate claims the door was closed and he remained outside

154 Gerry caught on camera laughing his head off only a few days after his daughter had been 'abducted by paedophiles' as claimed by the parents
155 Kate refused to answer 48 questions
156 Despite the possibility that Madeleine's disappearance could have been an inside job the twins were placed in the creche the next day
157 Despite the proximity of the apartment to the Tapas restaurant Kate left the twins alone to alert the friends and Gerry instead of shouting from the balcony
158 As soon as Mark Harrison organised the search with the british dogs the McCanns started trips to a triangle between Budens, Raposeira and Sagres
159 Kate checked the breathing of the twins during the night of May 3rd
160 The twins never woke up during the police search despite many people entering their bedroom
161 The only people having allegedly seen Murat around the apartment on the night of May 3rd were Fiona Payne, Russell O'Brien, Rachael Oldfield and possibly Jane Tanner
162 Nobody who knew Robert Murat saw him that night around the apartment
163 Robert Murat translated the statements of the nannies and of Dianne Webster, most crucial statements regarding the whereabouts of Madeleine on May 3rd
164 Mrs Fenn heard Madeleine crying for 1 hour and 15 minutes on May 1st
165 One child threw a tantrum on May 2nd on the playground and had to be carried home. At the same time the McCanns claim Madeleine claimed to have cried.
166 The crying stopped abruptly.
167 Kate McCann was alone in the apartment at 20:15 on May 2nd getting the children to sleep while her husband was already at the Tapas restaurant
168 Kate McCann left the restaurant 5 minutes after Gerry on May 2nd
169 Gerry uttered in a spanish interview that their persecution had been bad, but not as bad as the "night we found her"
170 Madeleine's bed, that had been made on Wednesday morning for the last time, looked very neat Thursday night
171 Although they claimed that they had no buggy for the trip to the Millenium breakfast they had buggies for the trip to the beach on Tuesday
172 Although they claimed that the trip to the beach happened on Tuesday, the creche records clearly suggest it happened on Monday
173 If there had been a 1 nanny for 3 children ratio as the McCanns claimed, why did Catriona Baker lead 5 OR 6 children alone to the beach?
174 Why had Madeleine a "sunburn" on her right arm as shown in the tennis picture?
175 Russell O'Brien claimed to have collected his daughter from the creche before 16:45 but also stated that he finished sailing at 16:30 and then went for a swim
176 Where was Russell O'Brien between 16:45 and 17:52 when he arrived at the beach restaurant Paraiso?
177 Why did he not sign his daughter out from the creche that afternoon?
178 The sailing instructors Alice and Chris were not formally interviewed but could have possibly confirmed wether Madeleine had taken part in the sailing on the morning of the 3rd
179 Gerry McCann stated that David Payne had entered their apartment to check on Maddie and the twins on the evening of May 2nd
180 The above statement was never repeated nor followed up
181 Gerry McCann was not in the apartment when Dianne Webster entered it for the first time after the abduction possibly at the time of the Smith sighting
182 Kate McCann claims in her book that Gerry was searching together with David Payne at that time but their witness statements say otherwise
183 The time of the first alarm given by Kate was never confirmed by independent witnesses. Statements suggest the alarm had been raised around 21:45
184 There was a Junior Group (6-10 year olds) in the same room above the reception that never got a mention
185 This explains the statement by one nanny that Madeleine had mainly played with the older children.
186 The nannies were transfered to Greece on May 13th and were no longer available to the police
187 One nanny was invited by the McCanns into their home before the rogatory interviews
188 The same nanny got a new job afterwards and her whereabouts were withheld on the request of the McCanns according to the media
189 Research shows that this nanny is now working for a multimillionaire in Manhattan
190 The McCanns used the media to introduce changes in their story
191 e.g. the additional baby monitor of Jane Tanner entered the story through a briefing by Gerry McCann given David James Smith of The Times
192 Charlotte Pennington allegedly remembered Robert Murat being in the vicinity of 5A after a visit by Metodo3 7 months after the disappearance
193 Two other witnesses remember Murat as well after 7 months
194 Brian Kennedy and Antonio Jimenez from Metodo 3 visited the PJ in November 2007 with alleged evidence incriminating Robert Murat and two other people
195 Antonio Jimenez was later jailed for stealing drugs from a police storage

Find Ben?

Yet another case totally pocketed by McSpin. Especially now that a lot of people question the unfair attention to one single missing child.

"Sie wollen eine Entführung erzwingen"

Englische Übersetzung von Joana Morais

Übersetzung von Portugiesisch ins Englische ins Deutsche:


Judite de Sousa [JS]: Hier im Studio habe ich Goncalo Amaral, den Inspektor der PJ, der die Untersuchungen zum Verschwinden von Madeleine McCann vor 5 Jahren in situ geleitet hat. Guten Abend, Goncalo Amaral.

Gonçalo Amaral [GA]: Guten Abend.

JS: Was veranlasst Ihrer Meinung nach Scotland Yard plötzlich die PJ zu bitten, den Vorgang wieder zu eröffnen und kategorisch zu verkünden, dass es 195 neue Ansätze gibt, die es zu untersuchen gilt?

GA: Nun, wir müssen das Timing verstehen, den Zeitpunkt... Gestern war der 25. April [Gedenktag an das Ende der Diktatur in Portugal 1974, bekannt als die Nelkenrevolution] Dies ist wichtig weil es der Tag ist an dem Portugal Freiheit und Demokratie feiert, und eine fremde Macht, oder eine Person einer fremden Macht uns sagt: "So ist es, eröffnet es wieder!". Es ist wichtig. Wir sind wenige Tage entfernt vom traurigen Jahrestag des Verschwinden dieses Kindes, ein tragischer Moment... Es ist ein Jahr her, dass das Team seine Untersuchung startete, bei der Millionen von Pfund ausgegeben wurden; dies wurde in England hinterfragt. Zu sagen, dass sie 195 mögliche Hinweise haben - da muss ich fragen, warum ist das so? Warum haben sie noch 195, warum haben sie nicht nur 5?


JS: Wie erklären Sie sich diese Zahl? 195 Untersuchungsmöglichkeiten?

GA: Sie sprechen von Sichtungen, von Visionen durch Medien, in Dingen die erarbeitet wurden, verschiedene Dinge wurden über die Jahre hinweg erarbeitet und was die Sichtungen angeht, sehr gut erarbeitet; nun muss die englische Polizei den Ball der portugiesischen Polizei zuspielen und wir bleiben auf der Beweislast und den Kosten für die Untersuchungen sitzen. Ohne Zweifel ist es wichtig den Prozess wieder zu öffnen, aber ohne die Beschränkungen, die sie uns auferlegen wollen.


JS: Was sind die Beschränkungen, die sie uns auferlegen wollen?

GA: Sie wollen eine Entführung erzwingen. Tatsächlich sprechen sie über zwei Möglichkeiten, dass sie leben könnte oder tot sein könnte. Und das is es.

JS: Nein, Scotland Yard sagt dass....

GA: Nein Scotland Yard bestätigt dass das Kind leben oder tot sein könnte.

 JS: ... sie am Leben sein könnte.

GA: Oder tot sein könnte. Vergessen Sie nicht das "tot sein könnte". Mit einer 50%igen Wahrscheinlichkeit. Und das ist das wirklich Traurige. Es sind fünf Jahre vergangen und wir wissen immer noch nicht was mit diesem Kind geschehen ist und das ist unser Fehler. Es ist unserer!

JS: Unserer? Wessen?

GA: Unseres Justizsystems, unseres Generalstaatsanwaltes, der es erlaubte die Untersuchung ad acta zu legen. Im September 2007 hatten wir gewisse Schlüsse gezogen, es waren Zwischenergebnisse, und eine Kriminaluntersuchung muss abgeschlossen werden. Sie muss beendet werden. Dieser Untersuchung war es nicht gestattet am Ende anzukommen. Es war wichtig zu sehen ob die Schlüsse zu denen wir damals gekommen waren, letztendlich bewiesen werden konnten oder entkräftet würden - so sollte eine ordentliche Kriminaluntersuchung durchgeführt werden.

JS: Warum entschied der portugiesische Generalstaatsanwalt Ihrer Meinung nach den Prozess ad acta zu legen?

GA: Weil wir Portugiesen sind und die sind Engländer - so einfach. Wir sind klein und sie sind groß. Das passiert gerade jetzt.

JS: Dann vertreten Sie die These dass es politischen Druck gab?

GA: Darüber gibt es keine Zweifel. Erst kürzlich war unser derzeitiger Premierminister in England, er führte Gespräche mit David Cameron und sprach oder ihm wurde erzählt (über diesen Fall). Es wäre für unseren Premierminister wichtig gewesen zuerst mit denen zu sprechen die in der Untersuchung involviert waren um ein besseres Verständnis darüber zu haben was passiert war...

JS: Aber es wird schwierig für die, die uns zuschauen und zuhören,zu verstehen sein, aus welchen Gründen die politischen Mächte in London oder eine Polizei mit dem Prestige von Scotland Yard, so fokussiert, so engagiert in diesem Fall sind, fünf Jahre später, besonders seit der Prozess schon lange in Portugal archiviert wurde. Was denken Sie ist die wahre Motivation hinter dieser Review?

GA: Glauben Sie wirklich dass sie fokussiert, engagiert sind? Sie sprechen von einer 28 Mann starken Truppe innerhalb von Scotland Yard... Erlauben Sie mir sie zu informieren, dass es nur eine Stadtpolizei ist, der Stadt London. Hier in Portugal wurde die Untersuchung von der Policia Judiciaria geleitet, eine viel höher stehende Polizei, mit juristischer Kompetenz für das ganze Land, im Gegensatz zur Metropolitan Police. Lassen sie uns darüber im klaren sein, wir (PJ) sind was wir sind, aber vielleicht können wir gleichwertig oder sogar besser als sie sein - das ist der Punkt. Nun, die 28 Polizisten betreffend, sie untersuchten (die Fallakten) und kamen zum Schluß: "Wir haben 195 Hypothesen". Nun, die Frage ist warum haben sie immer noch 195? Warum nicht nur 5? Sehen Sie das nicht?

JS: Sie denken also dass sie 195 sagen und genauso 10, 15, 20, 200, 300 sagen könnten?

GA: Sie müssen das ausgegebene Geld rechtfertigen. Es wäre besser gewesen wenn sie nur fünf gesagt hätten. Das wäre bedeutungsvoll gewesen, es würde bedeuten, dass sie die vielen Möglichkeiten eingeschränkt hätten. Zu sagen dass sie 20, 30, 40, 195, 200, 300, 400... Sichtungen und Träume durch Medien haben, sehen Sie wir haben Hunderte, Dutzende, Tausende von denen, suchen Sie sich einen aus. Auf der anderen Seite, Fakten, Indizien alles was im Bericht vom September 2007 steht, der von der PJ UND der englischen Polizei zusammengestellt wurde - lassen Sie uns nicht vergessen, dass es die lokale Polizei des Wohnortes der McCanns war, die mit uns zusammengearbeitet hatten, nicht die Metropolitan Police. Hier haben wir die PJ die die nationale Kompetenz hat Kriminalfälle zu untersuchen, aus einem guten Grund... Daher kann das, was damals festgestellt wurde, nicht angefochten werden. Warum bitten sie uns jetzt den Fall wiederaufzunehmen? Es ist wichtig den Prozeß wiederaufzunehmen aber wie Dr. Rogerio Alves (Anwalt der McCanns in Portugal) kürzlich sagte, muss es solide Fakten geben um den Prozeß wieder zu eröffnen. Er weiß sehr gut dass wenn dies geschehen ist, wird ein Schritt unweigerlich folgen und dass ist die Rekonstruktion der Fakten (des Abends des 3. Mai). Und die Rekonstruktion der Fakten, die sowohl positiv oder negativ für die damaligen Verdächtigen sein kann, muss durchgeführt werden, es ist der erste Schritt der getan werden muss lt. den Verfahrensrichtlinien in Portugal. Und das ist noch nicht geschehen...


JS: Gonçalo Amaral, also stehen Sie dazu dass der Prozeß wiedereröffnet werden sollte?

GA: Yes I do, I have always defended the re-opening 6, actually it's something the McCann couple never defended, only recently, after two or three years, they've started to defend a review of the sightings - and that is what is being done. The re-opening of the process in Portugal, with all the indicia that are contained in the process, it was never defended by them. Note that when the process was archived in 2008, there were three suspects: Robert Murat and the McCann couple. Any of the three could have opposed to the process archival, some received 500.000 pounds of compensation from the British media whilst others kept quiet. Why? Because it wasn't their interest for the investigation to carry on, but the investigation needs to go on.

JS: You are talking about the child's parents?

GA: I am talking about all of them, of all those that were considered suspects.

JS: Do you maintain that...?

GA: The investigation needs to go on. If someone stopped, someone as an arguido, as a suspect, for example in the case of Robert Murat, if he believes, due to his own personal motives, that he doesn't have to advance with a request asking the re-opening of the investigation - he received a compensation from the English newspapers - that's fine.

JS: You maintain the belief that this child is not alive?

GA: I have one opinion. Just like that gentleman [Andy Redwood] has one opinion, "I have one opinion", he said, "that she is alive", I have the opinion that she is dead. I have the right to have my own opinion. I and other police officers, I and other [forensic] technicians, and my opinion is an opinion based on facts, unlike his who I don't know if it is based on evidence, or if it is based on pseudo-sightings, or where it is based exactly. I wrote a book where I underlie my firm belief and the facts that support my opinion, that gentleman said "we've looked at this [the process], and it's like this"... but he doesn't explain the reasons.

JS: And do you also maintain the belief of the parents responsibility in the cadaver's disappearance?

GA: Notice one thing, a criminal investigation has its own dynamics, we begin at a point and we bring it to an end. By September 2007 we had reached certain conclusions, and it would have been necessary to validate those conclusions, to advance or not in that path, we had to carry on with the investigation. That is a criminal investigation. Then someone says "you have to stop the investigation" and no progress was made since. What is left is what was made known in the process and in my book [Maddie, The Truth of the Lie]. And was expressed in the book because we were accused of several things, I was accused of several things, and that book came out in my defence. By the way, let me tell you that the book copies were formally returned today, finally after several years [7.500 book copies were seized after a McCann couple injunction].

JS: And it's going to be placed again in the bookshops.

GA: I believe so, yes. People have the right to read the book...

JS: Gonçalo Amaral, what are...?

GA: Now, those were conclusions arrived at a determined moment of the investigation, they are not final conclusions. They are interim, and people have to understand that.

JS: What should be the Oporto's Judiciary Police team line of investigation if the process is re-opened?

GA: Oporto's team has no chance of investigating the process, the events took place in the Algarve, as much as they wish, as much competence they have, they can't - they're too far away from it [as to time, crime scene/terrain and circumstances]. It's logical that it is important for someone to be distanced, in terms of location and time, but they don't stand any chances, they really don't, because it all took place in Algarve. Either the investigation is made by the Algarve or between the Lisbon and Algarve Judiciary Police, or is investigated in England as it should be. In fact, the English police, Scotland Yard have the money to support the costs, they can spend an extra few million pounds and investigate what happened to a British subject, that is, Madeleine McCann, of English nationality.

JS: Gonçalo, explain me one issue. In your point of view, what are the reasons that led the National Judiciary Police Directorate to send to Oporto the Maddie McCann case?

GA: The reasons? They were justified by Dr. Pedro do Carmo, because of the distance, because of the geographical distance, the distance in terms of people, but in terms of competence...

JS: And what do those reasons tell you?

GA: In Lisbon, for example the former DCCB7, the current National Unit Against Terrorism have much more experienced people - I'm not talking about competence - but much more experienced people in the area of abductions, kidnappings, disappearances and so on, than Oporto has. Oporto only has...

JS: So, you don't understand that decision?

GA: My colleague, that I know very well, Dr. Helena Monteiro, has a big case, the case of the young woman from Lamego, that disappeared there and later appeared close to the motorway connection to Régua8, it's an important case but the young woman was dead, she had been there for a month, and they could have located her with a GPS, but well...To state that they have a great experience [in missing people cases] it doesn't make much sense.

JS: But are you saying that your colleagues from Oporto....

GA: They are very competent, have no doubts about that. They are police officers, they are competent, they are criminal investigators, they are competent.

JS: But you don't believe that they can solve this case?

GA: Too many pages. Too much indicia, too many things that need to be read, and sometimes it's difficult to read 9.

JS: Gonçalo Amaral, what happened to your team? To the persons who worked with you during the investigation to this case?

GA: They are being persecuted, case by case, they are being persecuted. The last case was with my colleague, Ricardo Paiva 10, who was a target of an entrapment, an entrapment at facebook [social site], and Dr. Pedro do Carmo immediately stated that he had violated a number of duties, etc. It's interesting because Pedro do Carmo....

JS: One question...

GA: Allow me to conclude, in terms of disciplinary processes Dr. Pedro do Carmo was the person who had to make a decision, and immediately before any investigation is made to that incident, he stated that Ricardo Paiva had violated the secrecy of, a series of duties, and we have to ask, why does this happen? Why does someone, a deputy director of the Judiciary Police, comes to the public, on his tiptoes11, speaking against him [a colleague]? It's because they are witnesses. Ricardo Paiva is one of my witnesses in the process the McCann couple have against me, and why do these directors, these people who are now directors - at this moment they are representing the Judiciary Police, but they are not the Judiciary Police - the Judiciary Police has a history, beyond these directors...

JS: Let me go back to the point that you just made, what you are saying is that your colleagues that remain active, in the Judiciary Police, are being persecuted?

GA: There are no doubts about that.

JS: Inside the Judiciary Police?

GA: Inside the Judiciary Police.

JS: They are suffering retaliations?

GA: They are suffering retaliations, simply because they worked with me. I can't go to the police, I can't contact anyone because immediate retaliations follow. That has happened before. Therefore I limit myself to the life in my neighbourhood, it's a pretty neighbourhood, very close to the EXPO, where I lived for forty years, and now I'm back again.

JS: Did this case ruined you?

GA: It didn't ruin me per se, I live through this moment of crisis like all of us are. I am surviving, and will continue to do so. I will go on with calm and serenity.

JS: Gonçalo Amaral, thank you so much for coming here tonight to 'News at 8'.

GA: Thank you, good night.

Amaral comments on latest cover-up attempts

Maddie: English police wants to "impose abduction theory"


Thank you to Astro from Joana Morais Blog



In an interview to TVI, Gonçalo Amaral defends the reopening of the process, but without limits

Gonçalo Amaral defended that the investigation process into the disappearance should be reopened, yet adds that the English police wants the reopening, but with the imposition of limiting the investigation to the abduction theory.

"They speak about sightings, about visions by mediums. A lot of things have been produced over the years and well produced and therefore the English police has to pass the ball to the Portuguese police and we are left with the onus and the expense of investigating. It is important to reopen the process, nobody should doubt that, but to reopen the process without limitations, the way they want to limit us", the former Judiciary Police inspector explained.

"They want to impose an abduction", he stated in an interview to TVI.

Gonçalo Amaral further said that the fault of not knowing what happened to Maddie yet is ours. "It's been five years and we still do not know what happened to this child and it is our fault. The fault of our justice system, of our Attorney General who allowed this investigation to be shelved", he said, justifying the fact because we are "Portuguese and they are English, we are small and they are big. That is waht is happening."

"The investigation was never allowed to arrive at an end", he stressed, admitting that he has no doubt that there was political pressure.

Concerning what happened to the English girl, Gonçalo Amaral stated that he has his opinion. "In my opinion, she is dead."

Lastly, the former inspector further accused the Judiciary police of internally persecuting his colleagues that remain by his side.

Thank you Mr. Redwood

Your work, I am sure, is much appreciated



Dismissing conspiracy theories about Madeleine's parents' involvement, Redwood said he believed the girl's disappearance was the result of "a criminal act by a stranger".




Evidence? Huh? We carried out boxes of evidence. In Barcelona.
This evidence dilutes the so called PJ Files.

Diminishes them to a mere percentage.
Nobody will be able to claim anything based on the PJ Files, because SY has ALL the evidence.



I am afraid, the British will have to live with it. 
Long live Rupert...

From the horse's mouth (Upd.)


"Wednesday, 2 May 2007. Our last completely happy day. Our last, to date, as a family of five. If only it was possible to rewind. Even for an hour."

I know she added "completely" to the sentence but wouldn't the third be the day she last remembered together with Madeleine and would it not be the third she hoped to rewind?

"Fiona and Dave had been windsurfing that morning and had seen Madeleine’s group, who had gone down to the beach for their ‘mini-sail’ activity.We heard later that they’d been on a speedboat as well as a dinghy. Fiona told me she’d spotted Ella there but not Madeleine."
The only independent witness for Madeleine being alive on the Thursday is now getting dropped right in. Did Cat Baker get questioned again regarding the sailing trip? Jane stated clearly and explicitly in her rogatory that Fiona had seen Madeleine AND Ella on the boat and had told her so and that she herself had seen them both. Another indication for my theory that she died on Wednesday 2nd?
""Reply "Yeah, I think we met Dave and Fi coming back and they said they'd seen Madeleine and Exxxx on a boat, because they'd taken the kids sailing that morning, so they said 'Oh we've seen Madeleine and Exxxx on a boat down there'. So then we went down to the beach, and Russell took out a kayak and I sat and just played on the beach with Exx at that point. And we saw they'd come off the boat and we saw Exxxx and Madeleine and the rest of the group, they were just, they'd just come off the boat and they were getting ready to walk back up to the Kids Club, so".""

--------------------------------------------


Antonella Mozzarella in the Sun from 14th is allegedly quoting Goncalo Amaral as saying:

"Tourists like her are not needed, mothers neglecting their children, that loses a child on holiday after dinner when she was drinking in a bar until midnight."
This clearly indicates the Wednesday and not the Thursday. Direct quote? Misquote? Mistake? Hint?

We will see...
