Leveson Enquiry Statement by chief Crime Reporter for Daily Star

Post  Panda on Thu 29 Mar - 1:27



Referring to answer to question 15, it is surely of significance that the cases in
which individual police forces have chosen not to engage with the press have
resulted in some of the most vociferous complaints about coverage. Had
Leicestershire Police chosen to give off-the-record guidance to the press
about the state of the Madeleine McCann investigation then coverage may
have been markedly different. Instead Leicestershire greeted every query
with, "It is a Portuguese police investigation. You need to contact the
Portuguese police", in full knowledge - as you have previously heard in the
inquiry - of the fact the Portuguese police refused to comment officially on
any aspect of the case due to that country’s official secrecy laws.
