A joint investigation

On January 2008, according to the investigation files from the DVD given to journalists, the PJ detective Ricardo Paiva received a dossier from British police and sent it to Paulo Rebelo, the head of the investigation of Madeleine's disappearance, with an internal communication.

The dossier's first document is an email from Stuart Prior, of Leicestershire Constabulary, with several files attached: MS Word documents with witnesses statements and a PowerPoint (PP) file. Inserted in the PowerPoint file, among other things, there was the sketch of the face of what was called before “The bundleman”, the faceless man' sketch based on Jane Tanner description. The email was sent to Ricardo Paiva and to another Leicestershire police officer, Michael Graham.

Stuart Prior asked Ricardo Paiva, in the mentioned email dated from January 16, 2008 (14:55), to get back to him as soon as possible, with instructions from Paulo Rebelo concerning the action to be taken, about the content of the dossier.

The PowerPoint file, as the Leicestershire police officer explained, was completed by the Mccann and the witnesses statements were taken by UK Police. The second document in the dossier is a short message, also by email, from Gerry McCann to Stuart Prior, dated from January 16, 2008 (13:15), with the subject “sketch”:

Stuart

As discussed.

Gerry”

The email sent by Stuart Prior explained that, in the attached documents, Jane Tanner's description was taken from the Press and also from the summary of her statement. The witnesses statements attached to the email were from Gail Cooper, Paul Gordon and Trudy Dawkin. There were also files with “tanner description” and a “Summary of second statement of Jane Tanner”. Stuart Prior referred six specific questions, to be answered by Paulo Rebelo, and wrote that there was some urgency around those questions, as it was necessary to take decisions prior to the Gail Cooper artist impression appeared in the UK Press.

Another reason given by Stuart Prior for the urgency was the fact that he needed to get back to Gerry McCann because he asked to be updated about how Paulo Rebelo wanted the new lead investigation to be conducted. Stuart Prior wanted to know what kind of information could be provide to the McCann – who, as he wrote in the email, were very excited by the potential lead revealed in the PowerPoint file and in the enclosed witnesses statements.

A “point of power?”

The PowerPoint completed by the McCann has a title: “Finding Madeleine McCann – Aged 4”. Then, page after page, it has short references about the main points of several witness statement: Gail Cooper phrases about the a male she saw on April 20, 2007, while holidaying in a a villa near apartment A5, who is described as sallow skinned, scruffy, speaking broken English and claiming he was collecting money for an Orphanage in Espiche.

Alfred Schuurmans is another witness mentioned, in the PowerPoint file. He his head of Roscoe Foundation and Brian Kennedy spoke to him on January13, 2008. Alfred Schuurmans confirmed to Brian Kennedy that there are no Orphanages in Espiche or surrounding areas, and no collections were made, as this was illegal in Portugal.

Next page refers to Melissa Little, a qualified police sketch artist who spent many hours with Jane Tanner and Gail Cooper, to produce the sketches. Melissa, according to the PowerPoint file completed by the McCann, stated that there were many similarities between Jane Tanner's man and Gail's description.

On page 13 of the PP file, there is an “Action Plan”, with three points, to launch a worldwide search of the man pictured in the sketch. The last of the 14 pages of PP file has the sketch that Clarence Mitchell would show to the Media, during a Press Conference, on January 20, 2008. Following 11 pages have the transcriptions of witnesses statements, collected by British police.

Brief update to Gerry McCann

Ricardo Paiva replied to the January 16 email of Stuart, on the same day, at 17:52, on behalf of Paulo Rebelo, asking Leicestershire police to re-interview several witnesses and question other persons who were referred for the first time in his message and attached files. On January 17, several emails were exchanged between the two police officers, with details about specific actions and requests, most of them related with witnesses interviews and contacts.

Stuart Prior emailed Ricardo Paiva again on January 18, 2008 (18:57) to send more witnesses statements, in attachment, and inform the PJ Inspector that a brief update was given to Gerry McCann, as discussed between him and Ricardo Paiva. Stuart Prior also refers that he told Gerry McCann there were descriptions different from those of Gail Cooper and Jane Tanner, and evidence that several charity collectors have been “working” in the Ocean Club area, before Madeleine being taken, according to other witnesses.

The Leicestershire Detective Superintendent informed Ricardo Paiva that the sketch based on Gail Cooper description was likely to hit the Media over the weekend (19/20 January, 2008) – making clear that Leicestershire Constabulary was not involved in that in any way at all.

And just the day after Clarence Mitchell called the Media to released two sketches of a man the McCann “believe may have abducted the four-year-old”, one of the nannies from Ocean Club, Charlote Pennington, told the Daily Mail she saw Robert Murat talking “to a man who resembled the 'oddball' in the new sketch released by the McCanns”, outside the Batista supermarket. According to the January 21, 2008 edition of the Daily Mail, “Clarence Mitchell said the Madeleine McCann information hotline had been inundated with calls, saying the response had already been 'very encouraging'. Gerry McCann wrote on his blog: 'It is essential that he be traced. We believe many people must know who this individual is. We appeal to anyone who knows him or may have seen him to contact our private investigators. This man may have key information that will help us locate Madeleine."

Personally, I think people ought to have the right to complain about the sloppy journalism of your report: "Clarence Mitchell recruitment site: Just a coincidence?"

Ennabling comments would allow people to discuss such errors in their rightful context. Checking the basic facts is the cornerstone of journalism.

This was hardly a minor detail and draws a line quite squarely under your surprising desperation on this case: you are so determined to support your one conspiracy theory that you are allowing your better judgement to fall by the way side.

This is not the first time you have jumped to conclusions and I fear it may not be the last.

Your single-minded determination to feed one theory is the only explanation I have for an otherwise intelligent journalist imaking one basic mistake after another.

My own 'PSD/People's Party' confusion is nothing compared to this and I was quite prepared to accept your comments about that on my blog (eventually).

You are capable of so much more. This is why I have been so frustrated with you of late.

YSeems you have made the classic mistake of making your mind up about what happened instead of allowing the evidence to direct your instincts.

At the moment your instincts are in command of the evidence. And instincts alone are not enough.

I feel no satisfaction in warning you yesterday that it was unlikely that this company had anything to do with Clarence Mitchell - the McCann spokesman. I just wish you would get back on track and open your mind again.

I think the less time you spend at the 3 Arguidos - the better. It seems to have warped your judgement.

We should all try our best not to treat the truth as an inconvenience.

Maybe this can all be put down to the informality and spontaneity of blogging - but something tells me there is a more deep rooted cause for your rash behaviour.

Yes, we all make mistakes - but it not as easy to pardon mistakes of this nature.

I've just found sth in the Br press about Home Secretary Jacqui Smith that is worth reading.
I paste the link below and an excerpt of the article on the paedo who has returned to england and who has been given the oxygen of publicity. Disgusting.
This is part of the excerpt on JS.

(...)
What a farce.

Ms Smith has distinguished herself by lacking the intellect, personality or authority for the job.


So why hasn’t she been forced to resign? Answer: Because she is Gordon Brown’s mate, and when you have as few political allies as our PM, you need all the friends you can get.

Brown vowed his tenure would mark the beginning of a different kind of politics. Too right!

But who could have imagined those politics would end up sinking to the stage where paedophiles such as Gary Glitter are treated not so much as a problem as a political lifeline.

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

After having read the article I lookd for more articles by the same journalist and found this one on Maddie. Sorry if it is old news but it is so rare to find sth criticising the wonder2 that IMO it is also worth reading.

I agree it gives a remarkable insight in the dynamics of the investigation - but I wouldn't misinterpret the 'as discussed' statement too much. This is normal mail etiqutte in Britain. I put 'as discussed' on dozens of emails and mailshots each month - even if we have barely 'discussed' anything at all. We use the phrase 'as requested' in much the same way. It is a relatively formal and shorthand way of saying 'you asked for it, here it is, I'm just reminding you politely in case you have forgotton'.

It doesn't always mean any of the parties involved have discussed something in any depth or they have a close relationship.

Someone I have never met called me on Friday asking for a press-pack for a magazine I am involved in. I took their email and put in the email: 'here is the press pack, as discussed'.

We had barely discussed the matter at all. It's just an idiom most often used in business and rather formal.

If you were being informal and friendly you would say, 'here's that powerpoint file you mentioned'.

It's the kind of phrase I might use with my accountant.

Whilst I don not think there is any doubting the McCanns had a 'special' and 'unusual' relationship with Leicester Police I don't think too much should be read into this particular exchange.

I can imagine they had access to much more Police info than they should have.

One of the Madeleine Fund Directors is/was Philip Tomlinson (76) - former Chief Coroner for Leicestershire and solicitor. In Britain a coroner is someone who is responsible for investigating deaths, particularly those that happen under 'unusual circumstances'.

The Coroner works with the Police to determine the cause of death. In this respect they have a judicial function.

The coroner can grant autopsies, deny autopsies, grant exhumation orders, order Police investigations of deaths, order inquests to be held etc.

For this reason, Tomlinson is likely to be very close friends with many of the senior officers in Leicester.

The coroner's role comes under the control of the Ministry of Justice, which is headed by the Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice.

The McCann's friendship with Tomlinson might explain the preferential treatment they received from Leister Police in particular. We can only speculate whether or not any officers were abusing their position but it seems entirely likely they were.

I have said all along that someone within Leicester Police Authority has been lending a helping hand. Perhaps from day one.

Blackwatch

(PS: Labour is corrupt? That's hardly something new. The Blair years produced one of the most corrupt British governments in decades culminating in an illegal (and immoral) war. But most governments are corrupt - it's just levels of corruption we are talking about. Cronyism is simply a fact of life - but I don't think it extends to covering up a death. A hoax, yes. But not a death. As is evident from the way Blair disposed of former close friend, Peter Foster (Cheriegate) Politicians in Britain generally drop all ties with you very quickly if you attract negative press. Jeffrey Archer suffered a similar fate. he lost even his closest allies and friends. You find you lose friends in politics not attract them when things go wrong.

The McCann case is a singular and qui5te remarkable exception.

Which suggests all is not as it seems.

claudia,

Isn't it strange that Mitchell made no comment on the critically important sighting of Madeleine reported by the Smith family ?

It can only be concluded that he decided NOT to "use all means possible" with a legitimate sighting.

The "means" resulting from publication of the Smith's account was the slaughter of the dog of the Police Officer in charge.

Mitchell & Brown are inextricably tied by their mutual protection of the McCanns. Brown phoned to ensure Mr Amaral's 'removal' 2 hours before Goncalo himself was notified.

Mr Amaral was publicly slandered by the media, under Mitchell's management, prior to his dismissal and, more so, since upholding his right to publish a fully substantiated book.

Whilst criminals view and treat the Police as THE ENEMY, the electorate pay Government Ministers to uphold law and order.

In Madeleine's case, where overwhelming evidence of death was found, Brown & Mitchell are linked to the vile Mafia mentality which lead to the slaughter of a high ranking Police Officer's family pet.

"All means possible", according to Mitchell, also includes illegal site hacking, identity theft, including publication of material.

According to The Mail, Mitchell has secured the backing of a high profile film star in order to strengthen his client's 'media case' against the police, overwhelming evidence and conclusions.

That Mitchell chose the 'name' of a dedicated mother to support parents at the opposite end of parenting speaks volumes.

It's a small world and it so happens that within the campaign for truth group, which includes disgruntled police officers, a member knows Angelina's hair stylist. She will, undoubtedly, be enlightened by photographs of the happy, smiling McCanns marketing their daughter for profit and gain.

Mitchell cannot stoop lower in his use and abuse of good people. "All means possible", not 'political' - criminal and at the expense of taxpayers.

claudia,

As a front runner on Viv's blog (as well as all others) you've undoubtedly read the PJ Report Viv published.

The McCanns (or their representatives) asked for Madeleine's DNA to be used for comparison against the genetic profile of a child homicide in US.

Madeleine was, of course, still 'missing' at the time the request was made. Therefore, her DNA specimen/genetic profile was not only on record, it was despatched and used by profilers for identification purposes.

Live specimens were unavailable; the only specimens available to the police for cross matching purposes with a homicide victim in UD were those found jointly by Eddie & Keela from corpse material.

Police profilers were given specimens which conclusively proved Madeleine's DNA profile.
Her genetic profile did not match that of the other deceased child.

PJ reported being charged an extortionate amount for, in forensic terms, straightforward analysis - (tens of thousands of euros). In return, hair specimen results were withheld and two conflicting reports were, after weeks of unnecessary delay, handed to PJ. Results, neverthless, confirmed a 15 component match to Madeleine's genetic profile, legal requirement in paternity cases. It was also seemed sufficient for ID purposes in another death.

Were PJ charged over ten times the standard rate to deter them ? Likely, in the same way withholding hair specimen results was designed to deter and cause hindrance.

Like you, claudia, I'm one of thousands of British people who have applauded PJ's commitment and tenacity in Madeleine's case. There are many deeply disturbing aspects to this case. The overwhelming evidence of the death of an innocent child coupled with corruption of the highest order and highest level.

Labour looking after 'it's own' by "all means possible" - menace, lies and corruption. In this case, they've proved their contempt for the police and the law.









A person with direct access to Madeleine's DNA profile, which could only be determined by specimens recovered in her absence, despatched them to US for cross examination purposes.

A further waste of police time and money as Madeleine's genetic profile did not match that of the deceased US child.

It does, however, confirm that Madeleine'sspecimen evidence did exist containing Madeleine's genetic profile
The results on police records confirmed '

anonymous,

Your comments are very naive. Politicians and Masons 'look after their own' as do those in the medical profession. A recent example in the press. A GP misdiagnosed and failed to refer a child from the age of 5 - 16 years with persistent increasing leg pain. She eventually collapsed and hospitalized. X-rays showed a leg tumour the size of a man's fist resulting in amputation. It ruined her chosen career and life.

She commenced legal procedures; her lawyer was told 'virtually all of her records had gone missing'.

In line with the McCanns and their political associates, the GP knew his gross negligence would end his career if taken to Court.

In normal circumstances, the overwhelming evidence of death of a child would lead to the immediate arrest and Court appearance of the prime suspects.
Madeleine's case could and should have been finished to legal satisfaction within months.

The need to control the media and forums serves to confirm a 'cover up' involving the Government - 'political' corruption.

I have always believed the police findings over and above the Tapas groups stories. It's my right, yet, along with all other like minded commentators, I suffered threats, menace, hacking, ID theft and even threat of libel proceedings.

Blackwatch,

Your post does not explain why two different British Judges were cited in the media in the McCanns' defence.

In normal circumstances, Judges are firstly impartial and secondly arrive at their conclusions on the basis of all evidence - both sides - being presented, examined and cross questioned in Court.

In the McCanns case, prior to release of PJ's Report & PJ's voluminous files, one British Judge was cited as saying 'no evidence' alongside DE's OTT apology to the McCanns. The second Judge "determined" that the McCanns 'had suffered enough'.

Therefore, the 'assumptions' were made and published in the media on the sole basis of one side of a story - the McCanns. Overwhelming evidence of death on police files was either disregarded or overridden at the time the 'verdicts' were published.

I understand Blair & Brown are lawyers, Cherie a barrister.

RE: My Post didn't cite the two judges ....

I didn't didn't realise that we were talking about these two judges. As I've printed enough material over the months to sink a battleship - I didn't think it was worth going over these kinds of details again, I was just sticking to the case in point: the influence of Leicestershire Police Authority. This is what Reis's report was about.

The McCanns have had a massive amount of support right across the British and European political and criminal justice worlds - and yes it is remarkable and unprecedented and smacks of widespread corruption. But moaning about it doesn't really explain or prove anything.

It's pointless chasing big shadowy conspiracies. Better to chase the smaller links in the chain, account for smaller, more local events, tie everything down to evidence. So far there is no demonstarble private link between the McCanns and their lobby. Everybody thinks it will be expalined by something simple like Gerry and Gordon brown being old school friends or something - but all that is just nonsense.

What we do have, however, is proof that Madeleine Fund Director, Philip Tomlinson provides a clear link between Senior Officers in Leicester Police and Gerry McCann. Tomlinson was County Coroner and carried a substantial amount of weight within the Leicestershire Criminal Justice system. He's also a friend of Gerry (or at least he's on the board of Fund Directors).

The question is why have the McCanns had so much unconditional support? Why do they have such a powerful lobby? Why do they have the people they do as Fund Directors? The 11th richest man in Britain is amongst them. Do you seriosuly believe they were all friends? It's even doubtful that Esther McVey was really an old friend of Kate's. Yes they did A Levels at the same college bu they are not reprted to have been contact with each since that time.

It's all about links in a chain. Reis's problem is that he has not been paying attention to the details. He's invested waaayyy too much faith in one simple explanation (and arguably one that involves Gordon Brown).

This goes way beyond Gordon Brown - who doesn't have the support of his own party on petty matters, never mind international cover-ups.

There's a very politcal explanation for all this, but don't expect it to papertrail to any one figure. The McCann lobby is likely to consist of broad and homogeneous interest groups barely aware of the other's existence and spanning many countries. More a network of individual opportunists rather than a conspiracy or cabal.

This many people don't usually cover up the death of a child - but I agree, they're covering something up.

anonymous,

I don't 'do' conspiracy, I draw logical conclusions from facts and evidence.

Mitchell was seconded from COI media monitoring unit to control PR on McCanns behalf - fact.

Overwhelming police sourced evidence exists showing Madeleine died in her parents' apartment - fact.

In normal legal circumstances, unco-operative suspects/witnesses are arrested. Refusal to answer questions is noted for Court purposes - fact.

No evidence exists to support the McCanns plea of abduction - fact.

Evidence exists leading the police to conclude a 'syndicated abduction'; only forensics on the window were Kate's fingerprints - fact.

Brown's counterpart stopped the Prosecutor arresting and charging the McCanns last September - fact.
Brown & Jacqui Smith visited Leicester Police - fact. Brown rang to ensure Mr Amaral,having arranged to meet independent witnesses, was discharged - fact.
This occurred 2 hours before Mr Amaral, head of the investigation, was notified - fact.

Mitchell made a veiled threat to Mr Amaral to 'take care' after book publication and the slaughter of his dog - fact.

Mitchell made verbal threats to the Editor of Correio da Manha, publisher of book extracts and interviews - fact.

Media tabloids slandered Mr Amaral for publishing facts in a book - fact.

Media tabloids, according to Duarte Levy's response, printed misleading defamatory comments about him - fact.

People other than Duarte Levy & Paulo Reis are publishing articles in their names - a fact found by the police.

The overwhelming evidence of death and disposal gleaned from procedures recommended by Mark Harrison are more than sufficient to arrest and charge those considered responsible for trial by Court.

It can, therefore, only be concluded that the McCanns are benefitting from protection at the highest level, Government.

claudia,

As sightings of Madeleine alive are impossible, given the overwhelming evidence (of death) released, Mitchell is clearly selective as to which "sightings" get media coverage.

Can you believe the behaviour in this case ? It's almost as if the media is "Mafia" controlled; the media treat the police as public enemy number one in Madeleine's tragic case.

This is a classic:

"The overwhelming evidence of death and disposal gleaned from procedures recommended by Mark Harrison are more than sufficient to arrest and charge those considered responsible for trial by Court.

It can, therefore, only be concluded that the McCanns are benefitting from protection at the highest level, Government."

The evidence was so 'overwhelming' that a case wasn't even brought against the McCanns and both the McCanns and Murat were released from their arguido status.

Don't like a conspiracy story? Then how do you justify this statement:

"the McCanns are benefitting from protection at the highest level, Government."

Why do you think the uk government are conspiring to cover up the death of a child? Risking all their collective careers for the sake of what? A couple of nobodies from Leicester? All those links in the chain that could have broken down? That's quite a support network you are implying. And all these people were absolutely confident there wouldn't be one weak link in the chain? Not friends? Not family? Not Police? Not Home Office staff? Not even from people simplying relaying messages? What are the chances of them taking such a huge risk by assuming that no one would nervous get squeal?

Quite simply, it doesn't happen. Not over something as relatively minor as this.

All that money up for grabs from the media for an explosive story - and nobody was tempted to talk?

I don't seem to recall the powerful Jeffrey Archer being covered for? Tony Blair's friend Peter Foster went to jail too. All these people in and around senior government and nobody covered for them.

That's the reality I'm afraid. When your fortunes turn - politicians are the first friends you are going to lose.

The safest option for them would have been to turn the McCanns over.

Unless of course, they had big plans for Kate and Gerry. Someway of profiting from their investment?

Maybe a kind of high-brow community service?

Stop being led by the pack and start thinking.

Shu/Outono,

yes the 24 photos and clothes change. Are they fact or fiction? The Police don't seem be requesting them with any urgency.

Clothes change. People change for dinner, don't they?

I know my own wife does on holiday.

Oh,yes.It is so good take a bath and change clothes; so good change the clothes if we are dirty; when the children vomit,no?But the better is a nice,nice bath.Change clthes without a bag, pardon a bath is no good.It is a bad thing not be clean,very clean,no?And when we go to the bed is also very good be nice and clean.
Where is the fiction?
Police from Uk? Probably in secrety;
Portuguese Police....uhnnnnn.....
Pardon,you know that your wife change the clothes?Upsss,and you,no? I hope.

To anon.

Thank you by your "talking" with me.

But I think many people are very concerned about 24 photos,even real or "fiction".
