McCann's rented car: 11, 229 kms in four months

The Renault Scenic was rented by the McCann on May 27, 2007 and send back to the renting company on September 23. Mr. Alexander Cameron was also registered as a driver, on May 27. At the end of August, another driver was included in the list: Michael Terence Wright.

The final contract extension was signed until September 24. Before the end of the contract, there was a contact between the company and the McCann, because Madeleine's parents were interested in keeping the car for more time.


But the company had also a renting contract with Renault Portugal and had to send the car back to them, so could not extend the renting period. The only way for the McCann to keep the car was buying it, but they refused.

On September 23, the car delivered to the renting company, in Lagos. A tall man, around 1,80 metres, with short grey hair, 60 to 65 years old, speaking English, took the car back and signed the delivery document. The car drove 11,229 km, between May 27 and September 23.

Payments to the renting company were made with credit cards. Several extensions of the renting contract were negotiated, with at least two different credit cards numbers. The last extension was made on September 1, until September 24.

11.229 são muitos kilómetros num País ou Países,"desconhecidos".

Penso então que dos 4 condutores,1 ou 2 ou 3 deles poderiam andar à vontade,talvez por conhecerem bem os sítios das deslocações.

Enquanto alguém poderia ficar sob as luzes da ribalta; sob os olhares dos media.(in loco-Praia da Luz).

27 Maio:
Mcs
e
Mr. Alexander Cameron;
---
no final de Agosto:Michael(Terry)Wright. CERTO?

23 Setembro entregue à companhia de aluguer;
mas,parece-me que no mesmo dia,23 de Setembro,terá sido alugado por outro inglês;
e há pagamentos com 2 cartões de crédito: de QUEM?
E várias negociações foram efectuadas para prolongamento do aluguer.Por interesse,isso é indiscutível.QUAL SERIA O INTERESSE?

11.229 km entre Maio e Setembro é muita passeata.Andaram muito mesmo.Turismo?Negócios?Negociações?Outros motivos?

Assim, como diz o fado/canção interpretado por Tony de Matos:

..." Só eu sei e nem às paredes confesso..."

Curioso e fun tastic.

ALL THE BEST! And a good day,all days.

We, and you too Paulo, know the car was of no interest in the case. As your e-mail said there was no evidence in the car of any consequence. Remember Paulo? Why are you still pursuing this rubbish? I notice you have nothing about the paedophile story on Belgium as yet?

I wonder if the owners of the credit cards are mentioned in the files. We seem to be getting information from newspapers, which is intriguing but incomplete.
Thank you Paulo for translating and publishing the stuff. Can you later make a brochure book out of what you got? It will be usefull to look at the process as it developed in time.

To Anonymous insisting on paedophile ring…
Still watching sky news, are we?
If you were able to get here, you should’ve noticed the previous post – “Scotland Yard: information about paedophile ring was ‘unsubstantiated’”. ’have a lazy eye, ha?! And probably a lazy mind too…
British media have the same files as everyone else … So, if they insist on publishing half the info, it’s your responsibility to try and find the complete report, before you make your very witty comments… otherwise, you’ll be ignorant by your own responsibility.

O que disseram os McCann sobre os seus movimentos?

Who is the tall man, around 1,80 metres, with short grey hair, 60 to 65 years old, speaking English, who returned the car? Is this information omitted from the files on the DVD? If so, any idea who he might be? M Wright isn\'t particularly tall, and he is too bald for it not to be mentioned. Likewise Cameron. so who might it be?

Vim aqui novamente pois pensei,já que o meu inglês é tão bom,que teria confundido milhas e km.s

Mas o CdM diz ainda melhor,se for certo,....

"EM POUCO MAIS DE UM MÊS,

entre 27 de Maio e 3 de Julho,

2750 quilómetros,

numa altura em que os McCann corriam o Mundo.


Esta foi uma das pistas seguidas pelosi nvestigadores do caso Maddie. A PJ tentou esclarecer...."

Isto em pouco mais de 1 mês com os progenitores fora de Pt.

E em 4 meses,os tais 11.229.

Continuo a dizer:é obra!
Grande turismo car.
