Extracts from Final Report

Post  Panda on Sat 6 Oct - 9:29

No doubt in the final trial of the long-running libel saga that is McCanns v. Amaral, reference will be made to the Attorney-General's final report, which effectively archived the investigation sine die, unless 'new and credible evidence' of those responsible for Madeleine's disappearance was produced.

Extracts from the 58-page report are rarely quoted. Here are a few:

On page 4597, it says: “The witnesses’ statements revealed important details which were not entirely understood and coherent”.

On the same page, the Attorney-General laments the failure of the McCanns and their friends to co-operate with the Portuguese Police’s wish to carry out a reconstruction of the events of the night that Madeleine was reported missing. He says this: “These [witness statements] would need to be tested and brought together at the crime scene in order to resolve the apparent inconsistencies, if not disagreements”.

The Attorney-General continues: “The technique for this is a reconstruction, but despite every effort by the Public Prosecutor’s office and the JP [Policia Judiciara]…this was not possible”.

On page 4598, various hypotheses are mentioned. They explicitly include, quote: “accidental death and subsequent hiding of a body".

On page 4603, the Attorney-General states: “The British media had been told of the disappearance, and the BBC apparently knew at 2.00am on 4 May”. On the following page, 4604, he adds: “As recorded in the questioning of Rachel Mampilly (one of the McCanns’ friends), via the Letter Rogatory, it was she who telephoned the wife of a friend of hers who worked for BBC news, to tell her of the disappearance and ask if it could be reported in the news”.

On page 4605, the Attorney-General makes this comment on the abduction theory: “The preliminary facts suggested this could be a case of abduction, although nothing was, or is, ruled out. The possibility of abduction was exhaustively investigated. No ransom was ever requested, nor were any sufficiently consistent clues to support this supposition found”.

On page 4621, the Attorney-General states: “Matthew Oldfield…went the usual way and entered through the French window of the McCann family’s apartment, which was open/slid to. From the middle of the lounge he saw the twins in their cots, as the door was ajar, but did not enter their bedroom and could not therefore say whether Madeleine was asleep in he bed…”

On page 4621, the Attorney-General refers to the evidence of Jane Tanner. He writes: “Jane Tanner only recounted seeing a person with child some time after the disappearance was discovered”.

From page 4628 onwards, at Section D, the Attorney-General discusses the evidence of the dogs. He lists 13 places, all associated with the McCanns, at which the cadaver dogs of police dog handler Martin Grime alerted to scents of a human corpse and/or blood, adding, “The work of these dogs can be appreciated much better on film...the dogs are trained in detecting dead persons".

On page 4630 the Attorney-General quotes Martin Grime as saying, “The dogs’ evidence…can help in the gathering of intelligence in investigating serious crimes”.

On page 4635, he says: “…the parents were the last people known to have been with Madeleine, alive and in a known place…the possibility of a body having been in the apartment and in the vehicle used by the parents were reasons for suspecting their involvement. As they were called once more to make a statement, having no plausible explanation for these facts and faced with evidence produced by the dogs…they had to be named as suspects…”

These are the comments of the Attorney General. Why have the saintly pair decided to go after Amarel and not the AG. Could it be that he is the easier target. Surely the comments of the AG should be taken into account in the review.

Hi Keela, they can hardly go after the AG he is very much up the chain of command and prepared his Report on the evidence he had.

One of his theories was that Madeleine died in 5a which is what Amaral used in his book and convinced the Court to overturn the injunction.

The report was prepared on the basis of the evidence available. GA's book was written with the evidence which was seemingly apparent. No libel there are everyone said and saw the same thing.

When Amaral wrote his book he said the theory was that Madeleine died in 5a. The McCanns sued him on the grounds that his claim hindered the search for Madeleine and was basically unfounded. The young Judge took out an injunction on the sale of the Book and ordered all copies available to be sequestered. Amaral appealed to a higher Court and won on the basis that the theory that Madeleiene died in 5a formed part of the Final Report. It may have been the McCanns did not know about the Final Report when they took action against Amaral.

If they didn't know about the report when they took action, they certainly do now so why persue the matter. Could it be that they are only carrying on with the farce because it saves face and this is all that matters to them?

Keela, their suit against Amaral was 1. His Book hindered the search for Madeleine. 2. The Book affected the health of the twins . 3. the Book affected their health. They are claiming E1.2 million in damages and thwey havn't got a hope in Hell of winning the case. My guess is , they listened to Smethurst , Brian Kennedy's corporate Lawyer and now a Director of NSU, it was Smethurst who accompanied Gerry to Portugal to start the ball rolling.
