BBC News 13/5

Post  quickfingers on Fri 13 May - 8:17

The BBC just had an ex-Scotland Yard Detective on about the McCann case and he said the review will involve having a look at all the forensic evidence and re-testing it. Also testing items that haven't been tested before. He said forensics have come on alot since 2007. Lets hope the samples still exist and can be re-tested.

Not what the McCanns had in mind, I imagine. As Clarrie is quoted as saying on the Sky News site, the McCanns wanted to see the information that has been added since 2008.

The original forensic test results might be interesting b4 they were manipulated. It would be very interesting to find out who gave the orders to change the results.

I would think new tests will show more details even though 5A was scrubbed out and Madeleine's clothes and belongings vanished. Having to return to the UK to get an item of Maddy's says a lot about the McCann's. What happened to her clothes and hairbrush and toothbrush...sharing a toothbrush is not very nice esp with having doctors as parents...buying a new 4x4 had a higher priority.

Wouldn't a review of any case involve re testing and testing of things not previously tested?

I thought Mr Amaral said the FSS had destroyed all DNA samples

Desperate times call for desperate measures. I think the McCanns need to have a look at the new information after the three Lisbon judges said their rights had not been infringed, they face costs for the books and there's the Amaral libel case, which I think they won't back down from: too arrogant! Or maybe they wanted to look at the new files before deciding to go ahead or drop the case against Amaral.

So are we all in for another long wait till September or beyond for the trial?

I suppose we are used to waiting now...we've had plenty of practice. The truth will be worth waiting for.

Some samples of DNA may have been destoryed but in the main they do keep other samples in a safe secure place should the case progress further. It depends on what Leicestershire Police have as well, it seems they have had ongoing involvement since Madeleine went missing and this has only been scaled back so far. You can bet pound to a penny all their telephone calls will have been recorded/monitored - FACT! Everything about them would have been put under surveillance. It is a review of all evidence from the word go and that means if there is something else in those files that is of interest to both the Met and the PJ that would allow the whole case to be reopened. Well it looks like the McScums had better get General Pinochet's QC back on retainer just in case they get called back to Portugal - or maybe, just maybe they could be tried in this country instead for the murder of their daughter. You know what I'd take my chances with the Portugese cause the British would be baying for blood more than Portugal ever would!
