McCanns, SY and the Three Burglars.

On November 5th last year the world-famous Lisbon Libel Trial, in which the McCann parents hope to sue the Potuguese ex-police officer Dr. Goncalo Amaral (who was the co-ordinator of the investigation into the unexplained disappearance of the child Madeleine McCann from an unlocked holiday apartment in Pria De Luz where she was left alone with her siblings, both aged 2, in May 2007) was scheduled to re-convene. Dr. Amaral wrote a book, ‘The Truth of the Lie’ (banned in the UK) based upon the conclusions reached by his investigative team.

The book, it should be explained briefly, explained how the claim made by the parents of the child, that she had been ‘abducted’, had no evidence to back it up and that, indeed, there were many indications that she had died – from a fatal accident – in the apartment.

Hardly surprising, therefore, that the parents wanted his book suppressed. They succeeded in having it banned shortly after publication. That was not the end of the matter, however, and the ban was overturned some months later. (The book is now available world wide except for the UK, where it remains, inexplicably, unavailable for the public to read)

Censorship is an ugly concept in what is claimed to be a free and democratic society. Hence the interest of the LHRO in this case.

And so, back to the first sentence, November 5th, last year. The date the Libel Trial resumed. The day before this, both the ‘Daily Mirror’ and ‘The Star’ UK tabloids announced the ‘EXCLUSIVE’ news that the ‘abductor’ of the child Madeleine McCann had been identified! The ‘Snatcher’ was named as a former employee of the Ocean Resort in PDL who had been sacked and therefore bore a grudge. He had a minor police record from some years previously for petty theft but that was about it – although this was enough to pin the ‘abduction’ of the child on him. Unfortunately he was not available for questioning or interview because he’d had the bad grace to die in a tractor accident in the meanwhile. A ridiculous story. But coming on the eve of the Libel Trial many saw it as an attempt to divert attention away from the trial in the country where the book is banned, the UK, and, one might go so far as to say, influence it.

The trial went ahead. It can be said it proceeded disasterously for the parents. Their witnesses at the trial were systematically ridiculed, their stories torn apart under cross-examination – and so it went on until the trial was postponed and a date given for the closing statements. It is due to re-convene tomorrow, on January 7, 2014.

Two days ago (surprise, surprise) to coincide with this the UK tabloid ‘The Daily Mail’ put up a front page leader declaring Scotland Yard, via the analysis of thousands of phone records, texts/calls etc., that were made on the night the child disappeared – had identified a three-man gang of burglars who were operating that week in PDL – no names given – and who were now the prime suspects for the ‘abduction’ of the 4 year-old (well, only less than a week away from her 4th Birthday) little girl. The parents must be so relieved. A photo taken of them at a football match the same day showed them smiling with delight. But – as with the ‘Snatcher’ who was identified as the ‘abductor’ back in November who died in a tractor accident – what actual credence can we give to this new revelation? Is it yet another attempt to prime us for the findings of the Lisbon Trial? To be used in the event that the parents actually lose in their attempt to squeeze £1,000,000 from Dr. Amaral? To be able to say afterwards – ‘The Trial was a travesty! The parents are victims yet again!’

The only victim in this whole case is the little girl who, as Dr. Amaral puts it, “Has no voice.”

But let’s say ‘The Daily Mail’ (and SY) have got it right and madeleine McCann was ‘abducted’ by these three burglars…

THE THREE BURGLARS would have had to:

Have drugged three sleeping toddlers before making off with one of them.

Have known exactly what dose of a drug to administer safely. (Safely?)

Have thoroughly cleaned and sanitized the apartment during the burglary.

Have had to spray cadaver odour in and around the room. On belongings, the childs’ soft toy, the Mothers’ clothing, etc.

Leave all items of immediate value behind.

Perform all this in the dark.

To have used traceable mobile ‘phones to communicate with each other.

And to come back at a later date to contaminate the parents’ hire car with cadaver odour and blood traces.

The burglars would be expert hypnotists to be able to:

Get the father to state he used the front door to enter the apartment – and then, a week later, to suddenly remember he came in through the patio doors.

Get the mother to stay indoors – rather than help search for her missing child.

Get the parents to ignore police advice not to advertise the childs’ eye-fleck.

Get the parents to not co-operate with the police.

Get the mother to flatly refuse to answer the police questions.

Get all nine Tapas friends to conspire to construct a false account of events resulting in an inaccurate timeline.

Get the parents to quickly set up a Company designed to accumulate finance for a long-term ‘Search’ for their daughter who, at that time, could have been found within hours.

Somehow they would have had to get the jemmied window shutters to self-heal.

We all remember the father saying, when he looked in on his children he, in retrospect, thought  the ‘abductor’ could have been hiding behind the door. Dr. Amaral demonstrated how that would have been imposible. But – for three people behind the door..? No.

Scotland Yard will be so familiar with all this information – do they really believe three burglars were responsible for all this?

Tomorrow the closing arguments in the Libel Trial will take place. It must be hoped that, at the very least, a decision will be made that will allow all the facts, freely available to the rest of the world, to be made available to the people of the UK. To continue with the censorship is abhorrent. There is no ‘hatred’ towards the parents in this case. The concern is for the child. It is to be hoped that as each day draws to its close we are one step nearer finding the truth and getting some justice, at last, for a little girl who has no voice.

Grateful thanks to all the guys on Facebook, in especial ‘Madeleine McCann : Unite for Justice’ and ‘Team Madeleine – Examining the Evidence.

A Happy New Year to all.
