Well do you actually believe everything you read in the papers? I know I don't for sure.
And that is especially true as I know how many editors and journalists have now admitted they made things up in the McCann case.

It was actually Clarence Mitchell who stated that the fund had payed their mortgage, he had too, as the papers had already got hold off the story ...


I personally do not believe it was two payments.

So what evidence do you have for claiming it was less or more than two payments? Just a hunch maybe? Thats the best way I suppose.

It would be just as easy to say "what evidence do you have" that the fund is for actually searching. Nearly 1/2 million spent in the latest accounts on a "small team" with nothing in the accounts or even detailed notes on how much was spent on the search and who was employed.

Did you check the missing people accounts and see they have "transparency" and "accountability" promised but not delivered by the McCanns fund.

http://www.missingpeople.org.uk/missing-people/who-we-are/finances

Platinum you must see that when a limited company which one of the objectives is "financial support" to a family doesn't share where the donated funds are actually spent after promising "transparency" and "accountability, people are bound to question it and it's spending.

If people are giving their hard earned money they have a right to know exactly where it is going.

Good grief.

This is not some sort of game, but an attempt to contribute to the resolution of the mystery of the disappearance of a totally defenceless young girl.

What on earth is to be gained by emotionally charged point-scoring"?

I just want the matter resolved - whatever the real truth (and not just a version of the truth) is.


I see you have edited your post and now I understand what you are saying but we (who stick our neck out) received abuse on a massive scale from the pro McCann supporters and sometimes you need to let off steam. Clearly you saw what BB1 said about me.

My turn to edit.

I don't consider this a game. Far from it as I spend a lot of time searching for information on the case and sharing what I find. Still sometimes you have to show some emotion when you are abused constantly. I don't swear or respond with abuse back so this is my way. Sorry if this gave you the wrong impression about me.



Errm, I was referring to the overall content of the foul site you linked to - not to you or what you said! That site seems to have no debate as such, just slings mud.



Edit: Just saw your later post and checked page 2. Merely confirms my original view. Quoting out of context and making things fit a warped and destructive mind-set. It gives some clues as to the nature of the type of people who think leaving defenceless young children to their fate is within the bounds of acceptable behaviour and are so blinkered that they cannot see any inconsistencies in the "version of the truth" fed to us on behalf of other irresponsible parents.

Further Edit: I've sent you a PM, but have no difficulty in apologising for all to see for what I can see was an unintentionally ambiguous response - I was so horrified by what passes for comment on that other site that my indignation genes were over-excited.

Special Resolution": Amendments to the Articles of Madeleine's Fund Leaving No
Stone Unturned Limited


11 January 2012 | Posted by

Joana
Morais Leave
a Comment




This
24-pages document was filed on December 21, 2011 at the Companies House. Pages 1 to 11 have a similar text and the
signatures of the current directors [except Edward Smethurst's signature]
approving a “Special Resolution” (sic). From page 12 to
24 follow the amended articles of the “Foundation”
(sic), that is, of Madeleine's Fund Leaving No Stone Unturned Limited. On
January 8, 2012 the private limited company full accounts [up to March 31, 2011
- without Kate McCann's book royalties & book deals] were
made available at the Companies house, the stamp on the first page indicates they were
filed on December 30, 2011. Since yesterday several UK newspapers have been reporting spinning on the Fund “dwindling donations”,
seemingly oblivious of the amendments to the articles of the company and despite
their obvious significance; adjustments which effectively ensure the McCann
couple & associates will now have a quasi “carte-blanche” regarding the use
of the Fund's donations.

Pages 1 to 11

I agree I'd love to know the answer too as the vast majority at leveson Edmondson, Pilditch etc deny making the stories up. Pilditch actually said his stories tallied with the police files when they were released did he not?

To me the word Foundation in this context suggests a charitable benevolent organisation. I think that Team McCann is trying to give the impression that the fund comes into that category.

Nice try guys but you'll know from my user name that I wasn't born yesterday!

Thanks gillyspot and NBY!

Well if the McCanns are trying to cause confusion in Joe Public's mind re the two Foundations, it could just as easily work against them maybe? It might depend on the search terms used by the searcher and the metatags used by the webmaster perhaps?

And yes, it does make it sound like something benevolent and wholesome. And also rather larger and more grand (in terms of personnel, resources and importance) than it actually is.

Just copying and pasting my thoughts from the other thread....

Powers
2C. To further its objects the Foundation may:
2C.1 provide and assist in the
provision of money, materials or other help; What money, what 'help'?


2C.5 provide or procure the provision
of advice; (From CR if needs be)

2C.8 acquire or rent any property of any kind and any
rights or privileges in and over property and construct, maintain, alter and
equip any buildings or facilities;
2C.9 dispose of or deal with all or any of its property
with or without payment
and subject to such conditions as the Directors think
fit, (So they can buy a property and sell it on WITHOUT taking PAYMENT back for the fund who initally bought it? I'd call that money laundering)

2C.11 set aside funds for special purposes or as reserves
against future expenditure, (for future Legal Fees?!)

2C.21 engage and pay
employees, consultants and professional or other advisers and make reasonable
provisional for the payment of pensions and other retirement benefits to or on
behalf of employees and their spouses and dependants,
(They can set up and pay into a pension fund for any directors? Nice little earner! Wonder if there are any pensions set up and how much is in them)

Limitation on private
benefits

2D.1 The income
and property of the Foundation shall be applied solely towards the promotion of
its objects
2D.2 Except as
provided below no part of the income and property of the Foundation may be paid
or transferred directly or indirectly by way of benefit to the members of the
Foundation. This shall not prevent any payment in good faith by the Foundation
of:

2D.2.1 any payments made to
any member, Director or Connected Person in their capacity as a beneficiary,
2D.2.2 reasonable and proper
remuneration to any person for any goods or services supplied to the Foundation
(including services performed under a contract of employment with the
Foundation), (Payments to anyone who the directors see fit then!)


Winding up
2F. If any property remains after the Foundation has been
wound up or dissolved and the debts and liabilities have been satisfied
it may
not be paid to or distributed among the members of the Foundation, but must be
given to some other institution or institutions with similar objects. The
institution or institutions to benefit shall be chosen by the Directors at or
before the time of winding up or dissolution.
(So they can get a 'friend' to start something up and donate the money to them)


My thoughts in red.

It's a nice little earner gillyspot judging by the wording.

Payments can be made to the directors as they see fit. So a director can take out a lump sum of any amount, as long as taxed is paid on it it's legit.

Pensions can be set up for the directors and any amount paid into it.

The directors can decide to buy a propery and do it up as they see fit and then dispense of said property without payment.

They can set aside fund money to be used in any future expenditure - does this include legal fees if Brian Kennedy cuts them loose?

And even if the foundation is wound up they can decide who benefits from any money left. They can get one of their bezzies to set one up and 'donate' the money to them.

It was a very bad move to let Kate or Gerry McCann become directors of this fund. They can use the foundation money as they see fit now.

As l said, nice little earner. If the mortgage hasn't been paid off before, it will be now.

One more thing..... if this has all been changed recently then certain people are moving towards the next phase that is getting as much as they can before the shite hits the fan, all in all good news for Feb and the results of the Met review which they know will be re-opened,.

Well do you actually believe everything you read in the papers? I know I don't for sure.
And that is especially true as I know how many editors and journalists have now admitted they made things up in the McCann case.

So, how many were there?

Four and all apologised within the newspapers. And paid damages.

It was in fact Tony Bennetts organisation which piggy-backed on the McCann fund Foundation name not the other way round.

I am not sure anyone could claim ownership of the word "Foundation" being a common expression. As far as I know the fund has never been called the Foundation other than as a legal shorthand (ie a definition) in a document.

The fund was launched under the name "fund" was it not?
