The report below gives me cause for concern. It is understandable that the PJ wanted to know about cash withdrawals, use of his Mastercard and the amount of time spent on his mobile by Gerry McCann both before and after the disappearance of Madeleine. I do not think it was at all "disproportionate" for the PJ to want details of the transactions on Gerry's Mastercard for a period of six months. On the contrary in a major criminal investigation apparently involving fraud or financial problems being the motivation for murder it would be perfectly normal for police to scrutinise all financial transactions for a period of years, let alone months.
What are the British Police and the Home Office about? On the one hand there are so many indicators that they are taking this seriously and wish to pursue the McCanns. I particularly took heart when reading the comments of the barrister for the Chief Constable of Leicestershire Police in the High Court action the McCanns commenced demanding disclosure of all files held by LP in an action they themselves apparently started within days of Madeleine disappearing making her a Ward of Court. The barrister stressed that this case was very much still under investigation and there were operational reasons for not disclosing such details to the McCanns. But on the other hand this report is another example of where there does seem to be a clear failure to co-operate with Portuguese Police which does seem to have motivated them to abandon their own enquiry. I think there are two ways of looking at this, one there is a cover up by British authorities and a clear denial of relevant information to the Portuguese. I know a lot of people favour this view. The second is that in the UK serious investigations are dealt with in an extremely confidential way, information is not leaked to the newspapers, unless it is a strategic measure in relation to certain information to further the enquiry, generally where a direct appeal to the public is being made for help and information. Therefore there may have been concern that ultimately, whatever we disclosed to the Portuguese authorities could either be revealed to the McCanns and the general public via the Portuguese press or, ultimately, via the opening up of the investigation as has now happened. Have we therefore deliberately held vital information back to further our own enquiry into the conduct of the McCanns? Increasingly, I feel this is a very real possibility. I have read that the specialist Economic Crimes Unit at LP have also been investigating this case. This is very pertinent to the facts of this case and IMO always has been. It has been abundantly clear from a very early stage that amassing large amounts of money are very important to the McCanns and that they used Madeleine as a marketing logo employing a number of firms specialising in this area to further that aim, like Mr Halligen for example. He has no expertise at all in finding missing children does he. The McCanns are clearly worried that his name has come out in the press and the fact that this man has apparently been "axed". It would seem he was not assisting in protecting the McCanns' image at all and therefore he had to go! Quite why that is of so much concern to their DG pal remains a mystery but I have a view as to why he may be involved and so concerned. In fact it would seem, even seeking to placate Mr Murat for the wrong done to him by the false accusations.... of paedophilia, something the apparent supporters of Kate and Gerry McCann do not think we should be discussing on here. Well that clearly tells us something. However, I sometimes wonder whether they really are on Kate and Gerry's side. Their blogs are such sick and sinister places with the comments filled with hatred, venom and very perverse thinking which would not occur to a normal person. Could they really be trying to demonstrate, by association what Kate And Gerry are really like, as they so accurately portray : sinister, sick and evil!
JUSTICE FOR MADDIE, NO MATTER WHAT ROUTE THAT MAY TAKE, IF IT MEANS EXPOSING CORRUPTION THAT IS WHAT WE CONTINUE TO DO!
Request for research on the accounts of Gerry is disproportionate British authorities saw no reason to justify research bank to the father of Maddie
The Portuguese police have asked the British authorities to investigate the collaboration of Gerry McCann bank accounts under the disappearance of Maddie. However, this request was considered excessive by the British authorities, since they covered a period of six months. Initially the authorities requested a clarification to the public prosecutor Portuguese, who best explained the reasons for the request: to identify whether there was some unknown reason behind the disappearance of Maddie and whether there is any individual or individuals responsible for their disappearance. The English authorities did not accept the request for clarification of Portugal and, in its letter of reply, sent the June 16, voicing concern about the reasons that led the authorities to request information on banking operations for six months, the credit card of Martercad Maddie's father. The counting of this period of time began to April 1, about six weeks before the disappearance of the child. Despite the official explanation of the Portuguese authorities, British police also took into account an unofficial explanation provided by the research team which visited England. At the time the police said Gerry McCann from Leicestershire which had been seen to raise cash in machines and talk to the phone. The Portuguese police wanted to know whether this action could be related to the disappearance. Kennah Francs, head of UK Central Authority, explains that after weighting in the application of coercive measures, the office, sees no reason to grant the permit requirements, whereas the request is not justified and seem disproportionate. The British authorities seeking clarification new to Portugal, however, this is not sent and the case is filed just over a month later. Without evidence that the couple McCann has committed any crime, the MP decided to close the case. On July 21, Kate and Gerry, along with Robert Murat, views raised the status of accused.
