My comment in the Independant (irish version) was shared as now are many more.

Interesting the only defamatory and abusive comment reads as follows

"I see the people who have stalked, threatened, libelled and harrassed the McCanns are on here.
You should know that a call has gone out on twitter for all these people to post negative comments against the McCanns again. It happens everytime when comments sectioned are left open unfortuantley.

Has nothing been learned from the Leveson enquiry?
Please do not allow these sorts of comments on here. It only fuels their hatred further.

These people have threatened to fire bomb the McCanns home with the twins in it. They have even threatened to abduct the twins.

Please realise these comments are part of an orchestrated hate campaign."

And it still appears. I have asked the mod to remove it as it does not comply with the rules of posting comments.

"Comments that are judged to be defamatory, abusive or tasteless will not be approved and contributors who consistently fall below these criteria will be permanently blacklisted. Comments should be concise and to the point. The moderator will not enter into debate with individual contributors and the moderator's decision is final."

I"ve just come home and scanned the Special Resolution,,,,,,is no one going to stop this couple ??????

The Company has nothing to do with searching for Madeleiene, it will be involved in teaching, making videos etc....it"s a b***dy disgrace.Why didn"t they close it down and donate what was left to another Charity for missing children instead of using it for their own ends. This is Smethurst"s idea no doubt,
can they get away with it? Remember, if they start borrowing money and go bankrupt, the Directors only pay £1 liability.

This should come as no surprise to anyone. The Find Madeleine Fund was registered and trademarked on 18 May 2007. The trademark included Class 36 Insurance (financial affairs) and Class 41 Education (provision of training). Excellent forward planning and part of Gerry's wider agenda I think.

I know it"s a scam but they shouldn"t be allowed to get away with it, I might just write to someone in authority who would take into account all the
donations from the Public and investigate the legality of this.

Panda, I was furious too when I read the terms of the fund.

Still I have to say it is exactly what I expect of these selfish, greedy, vile people!

Hi Palmeras16,

When the Fund was started John McCann stated that it would be administered under the "Good Governance Guide for Charities".......surely the public
have a right to challenge this departure. Iv"e got copies of the Accounts to 31.3.2011 but never saw the M & A. It looks as though there was some
dissent among the Directors because 4 of them resigned in August 2010. Is there nothing can be done?

Given the McCanns never ending pursuit of money one could be mistaken for thinking that Madeleine's disappearance was a deliberate marketing ploy and not a consequence of random misfortune.

I notice that The Fund appears to be turning into a Foundation now.

I know, Panda, but it's a sign of how cheesed off I am about not only what they did (or didn't do, depending upon when and why Madeleine disappeared) but the emphasis on collecting and frittering money ever since.

I am truly exasperated.

Apologies if anyone is offended by my remark. Factually true but yes, it is in bad taste.

And I am not Frankie Boyle (or Katie Boyle, for that matter)

As for taking action, it defeats me why we (especially thee) are put in a position whereby highlighting the matter should even seem necessary.

But it seems "inaction" is the "go to" mode for whatever Ant-Fraud Authorities we have got left.

Serious question: what were the terms and conditions before, has it seriously changed that much??

The reason l ask is, maybe they know their days are numbered and they're preparing for something else??

Don't forget too, how much money went into that fund in the last few months from the serialisation and sale of Kates diaries, can all now be used exactly how they want!

I think those who contributed to the Fund have every right to question this change......the first £1million was solely from public donations. Cameron won't
do anything , maybe Theresa May? I say this because she wasn"t going to order a Review until Cameron announced it.

I think this is exactly the point Margaret. They know whats coming next but so they are not fettered by the FIND Madeleine rules - they have changed them to play a different game. I still think the 'review' will come up with a - abducted probably dead - conclusion which the Mc's will reluctantly accept and then try and move on into circles of do-gooders!!

I would hazard a guess that the £300,000 paid to Halligen was "washed" and placed in an offshore account. The McCanns have probably paid off their
Mortgage now and I think this "training " thingummy is to keep Kate occupied. Gerry may still be working at Glenfields in the Research Department with
the grant provided by the British Heart Foundation ......but I don't know how long these usually last.

I have now had chance to "skim" compare the two documents (the original 2007 and the revised 2011 versions). While clauses have been renumbered and reorganised as far as I can see there is only one fundamental diffference between the two versions.

The 2007 version included the following in the objectives:

"To provide provide support, including financial assistance to Madeleine's family"

These words are absent in the 2011 version.

Bet no-one expected that!

Hi Chris, with all the money Kate made from her Book the Family are well provided for and maybe the McCanns realised there might be outrage if they
continued to take money from the Fund. So the 2007 M & A contained the clause that money could be used for traing and making videos? That's
incredible.

These words are absent in the 2011 version.

Bet no-one expected that!

Clause 2D.2.1 wording was there before as Clause 5.2.1 of the Memorandum. "Beneficiary" isn't defined anywhere so in the absence of the family support clause it is difficult to see who any beneficiaries might be. My guess is the revision merely reflects the original (apart from the exclusion I have already mentioned) and the original was cobbled together from a pro forma set of Mem & Arts without too much thought.

Hi Chris It seems quite clear to me.

" 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, "

So from what I can see any Director can be a "beneficiary"

Also not the words "Limitation on private benefits" - Limitation - not NO private benefits.

I think you are looking at it from the wrong direction. 2D.1 limits application of the funds for its objectives. 2D.2 prevents payments to members except as otherwise provided by the subsequent clauses. 2D.2.1 only allows payments if members/directors are also beneficiaries but does not make them beneficiaries. No beneficiaries are now provided by the objectives.

ETA the wording is very clumsy - no-one has actually sat back and thought through whether some of the clauses are actually necessary or properly constructed to reflect the totality of the document. I mentioned earlier about the circularity in the member/director arrangements.
