Justine McGuiness urges industry to take paedophile threat more seriously

Post  interested on Tue 4 Jun - 16:22

Travel Weekly News has an article entitled, "Madeleine press spokeswoman urges industry to take paedophile threat more seriously", dated 04 June 2013 at 14:02 GMT.

"Asked what she now believes happened to Madeleine, McGuiness said it was highly unlikely she was kidnapped to order as some theories suggested or just walked out of the apartment herself."

Sorry, I can't "do" links but I think this article is of interest as it relates to Justine McGuiness.

The travel industry should do more to combat the threat from paedophiles, the press spokeswoman for the family of Madeleine McCann told the ITT conference.

Justine McGuiness, giving her first ever public address on her experiences of managing the press campaign to find the missing five year old, said the sector should take the issue more seriously.

She praised the operator Mark Warner from whose resort in Praia da Luz in the Algarve Madeleine went missing from six years ago for its reaction.

But speaking about the travel industry in general she said she felt more should be done to counteract problems before incidents occur.

“When you take people to safe places to have family holidays and there is a risk there then actually I think the travel industry should take it more seriously than it does.

“Preparation is the key. I always said to clients prepare for the worst, the likelihood is it won’t happen but then at least you are prepared for it.”

McGuiness said the rise of social media means firms have to react quicker than ever to any incident and that a speedy and effective response was likely to pay dividends.

She said she was grateful the disappearance of Madeleine happened before the days of Twitter because the micro-blogging site has speeded up the flow of information.

“We had a clear strategy. We wanted to change certain things so that if a similar case occurred the police response would be quicker. There was a public affairs strategy as well as a media relations.”

McGuiness said she felt the Portuguese police did not understand the McCann family’s need to stay in Portugal while the hunt for Madeleine got underway following the disappearance.

And she believed the police and the local authorities started to take the view that they wanted the McCanns to go home.

“They felt if they went home this problem would go home with them. Of course you would want to know what happened to your daughter.

“For some of the policemen, and they were all men, I do not think they really understood that. They wanted them to go home and started applying the pressure by briefing the Portuguese media and then the UK media.”

And of Mark Warner’s response, McGuiness said: “They were prepared for dealing with the crisis. They did not know what crises may happen, but they were prepared.

“That’s the real trick in terms of a corporate dealing with a crisis, is preparation. They did a really good job and were supportive of the McCanns and were really helpful.”

Asked what she now believes happened to Madeleine, McGuiness said it was highly unlikely she was kidnapped to order as some theories suggested or just walked out of the apartment herself.

But she said her experience of the case made her realise that many paedophiles appear to be upstanding members of communities not thought capable of carrying out that sort of crime.

But she said often when the police find out what pornographic material they have half have material involving children under the age of 10 and 20% material involving under three year olds.

McGuiness said she feared as more time passes the chance of finding Madeleine fades.

“I hope it has a very positive outcome and that Madeleine is found. They are still looking for her but the longer than goes on the more likely it is that there won’t be a resolution.

“My heart really goes out to Kate and Jerry [Madeleine’s parents], to go for six years without knowing what happened to your daughter really is brutal.”

Interesting that Justine has been wheeled out after all this time. I thought they parted on not so good terms

Justine says the people responsible for Madeleine's disappearance may,
....appear to be upstanding members of communities not thought capable of carrying out that sort of crime.

I concur.

I notice she is being referred to as "the press spokeswoman" and not the "former". Has Clarence been replaced or do the McCanns now have two; a spokeswoman and a spokesman?

Whatever the case it still remains unbelievable to me that the 'evidence' provided by the dogs continues to be ignored in these frivolous abduction/kidnapped myths.

This is strange even by McCann stories. It appears to be a current article, referring to Kate and Jerry (nice spelling) not knowing for six years what happened to their daughter (OH YES THEY DO) but it also says that Madeleine is 5.

I think that it has been regurgitated as a new story with the six year reference added on.

so they had a clear strategy, was this about finding Madeleine or getting stuff out to the UK media, and they wanted to change things. well making sure your children were supervised by an adult whilst parents were out is a good start, was this mentioned any where. I don't believe the Portuguese wanted them to go, I think they wanted them to pay their way and not continue to take advantage of Portuguese or other hospitality. jimo

Another article from Metro News is of interest. "Sniffer dog Sasha the first 'drowned victim search dog", states "whose nose is so sensitive she can detect a corpse underwater from 30m (100ft.) away."

And yet the McCanns don't even believe dogs can "detect" on land.

Back in August of '07, after Gerry ripped off his microphone when the Spanish interviewer asked him about blood being found, he said that they were winding down their media campaign because it was proving to be counter productive.

Here we are six years later and I can't say I've noticed their media campaign winding down.

I guess that was just a rattle throwing out of the pram moment when Gerry was asked a question that wasn't on the script.

There have been a few of those - as when asked if he knew Robert Murat and also when asked to comment on fund money being used to pay the mortgage.

does this mean that Justine McGuiness is inferring that Madeleine was taken by a paedophile, and should she be promoting this story without evidence to support it. jimo.

Justine McGuiness and mccann were just thinking of others..all heart. Awwww...

“We had a clear strategy. We wanted to change certain things so that if a similar case occurred the police response would be quicker. There was a public affairs strategy as well as a media relations.”

And she an kate mccann were texting while kate was questioned in police station like stupid teens...it was forbidden. This is bit thick coming from her:

"And she believed the police and the local authorities started to take the view that they wanted the McCanns to go home."

..and forgetting that mccanns fled the country, when PJ had unfinnished business with them. How convenient. When it suit her own agenda.

etc. etc.


Basically...she is spouting sh**e.
