the 48 Questions courtesy of the Daily Mail

Post  Panda on Tue 17 Sep - 12:02

These are the questions:


1. On May 3 2007, around 22:00, when you entered the apartment, what did you see? What did you do? Where did you look? What did you touch?

2.  Did you search inside the bedroom wardrobe? (she replied that she wouldn’t answer)

3. (shown 2 photographs of her bedroom wardrobe) Can you describe its contents?

4.  Why had the curtain behind the sofa in front of the side window (whose photo was shown to her) been tampered with? Did somebody go behind that sofa?

5. How long did your search of the apartment take after you detected your daughter Madeleine’s disappearance?


6. Why did you say from the start that Madeleine had been abducted?

7. Assuming Madeleine had been abducted, why did you leave the twins home alone to go to the ‘Tapas’ and raise the alarm? Because the supposed abductor could still be in the apartment.

8. Why didn’t you ask the twins, at that moment, what had happened to their sister or why didn’t you ask them later on?

9. When you raised the alarm at the ‘Tapas’ what exactly did you say and what were your exact words?

10. What happened after you raised the alarm in the ‘Tapas’?

11. Why did you go and warn your friends instead of shouting from the verandah?

12. Who contacted the authorities?

13.  Who took place in the searches?

14.  Did anyone outside of the group learn of Madeleine’s disappearance in those following minutes?

15. Did any neighbour offer you help after the disappearance?

16. What does 'we let her down' mean?

17.  Did Jane tell you that night that she’d seen a man with a child?

18.  How were the authorities contacted and which police force was alerted?

19. During the searches, with the police already there, where did you search for Maddie, how and in what way?

20. Why did the twins not wake up during that search or when they were taken upstairs?

21. Who did you phone after the occurrence?

22. Did you call Sky News?


23. Did you know the danger of calling the media, because it could influence the abductor?

24. Did you ask for a priest?


25. By what means did you divulge Madeleine’s features, by photographs or by any other means?


26. Is it true that during the searches you remained seated on Maddie’s bed without moving?


27. What was your behaviour that night?


28. Did you manage to sleep?


29. Before travelling to Portugal did you make any comment about a foreboding or a bad feeling?


30. What was Madeleine’s behaviour like?


31. Did Maddie suffer from any illness or take any medication?


32. What was Madeleine’s relationship like with her brother and sister?


33. What was Madeleine’s relationship like with her brother and sister, friends and school mates?


34. As for your professional life, in how many and which hospitals have you worked?



35. What is your medical specialty?


36. Have you ever done shift work in any emergency services or other services?


37. Did you work every day?


38. At a certain point you stopped working, why?


39. Are the twins difficult to get to sleep? Are they restless and does that cause you uneasiness?


40.  Is it true that sometimes you despaired with your children’s behaviour and that left you feeling very uneasy?


41. Is it true that in England you even considered handing over Madeleine’s custody to a relative?


42. In England, did you medicate your children? What type of medication?


43.   In the case files you were SHOWN CANINE forensic testing films, where you can see them marking due to detection of the scent of human corpse and blood traces, also human, and only human, as well as all the comments of the technician in charge of them. After watching and after the marking of the scent of corpse in your bedroom beside the wardrobe and behind the sofa, pushed up against the sofa wall, did you say you couldn’t explain any more than you already had?


44.   When the sniffer dog also marked human blood behind the sofa, did you say you couldn’t explain any more than you already had?


45.  When the sniffer dog marked the scent of corpse coming from the vehicle you hired a month after the disappearance, did you say you couldn’t explain any more than you already had?


46.  When human blood was marked in the boot of the vehicle, did you say you couldn’t explain any more than you already had?


47.   When confronted with the results of Maddie’s DNA, whose analysis was carried out in a British laboratory, collected from behind the sofa and the boot of the vehicle, did you say you couldn’t explain any more than you already had?


48.   Did you have any responsibility or intervention in your daughter’s disappearance?

A QUESTION SHE DID ANSWER


Q.  Are you aware that in not answering the questions you are jeopardising the investigation, which seeks to discover what happened to your daughter?


A.  'Yes, if that’s what the investigation thinks.'

The  questions in red are the ones I think  serve no purpose

I don't think they will want the twins to see the questions. Even if they are a true account of what she was asked and what she refused to answer. I can see them wanting every thing like this taken off the internet.

Yes I do LJC, this is what I was trying to say on the other thread as to why Kate lost patience.This was the second day of questioning at the end of which she must have been tired , bored because the questions had to be translated, and I would probably have reacted the same way . Don't get me wrong, I am not condoning her, just in this instance can understand her reaction.

I understand that Panda, but how are the questions highlighted serving no purpose? She only answered one question, the very last one, so whether they were purposeful or not she refused to answer them because she had been advised prior not to answer them. It would not have mattered if she had been there three days, three hours or three minutes, she was not going to answer the questions.

On the other hand, by not answering, many would say she has answered a very big question, which is what is she hiding?

So what if Gerry answered and but Kate did not want to say anything that may contradict him? That only matters when you have something to hide.

But if you do choose to answer and you answer similarly to your partner, that strengthens your case.

Kate was advised prior just to let Gerry answer and for her to say nothing and that, to me, speaks volumes.

If you look at the questions again "how did you sleep" etc is Kate going to say , well my daughter has been missing for 3 days, but I slept like a log.!!

If she had answered the original questions, there may well have been secondary questions to follow.
Hence the 'sleep' question might have provoked more, eg Do you take medication to help you sleep? Do you take other non-prescription soporifics? How long have you been using them for? etc.

What seems like a 'banal' question on the surface could prove to be illuminating if explored further.

If she had co-operated, that is ...

Hi wjk, , just take a look at questions 5 and 8.......the twins were 2 yrs old and slept through it all as the Manageress would have testified when she first went into 5a.!!! If I had been the interrogator I would have taken a Psychiatrist disguised as a Translator to take notes.

You are right, I remember it too.

I don't think any of the questions put to her were banal and the fact that she chose not to answer any but the last, for fear of contradicting Gerry's answers says it all. If she was desperate for the questioning to be over so she could do what any mother would if their child went missing and go out walking and searching until her hands and feet bled that would be understandable, but she never did any searching

Exactly. Why would they be worried about contradicting each other if they were being honest.
I don't think it would have entered my head to refuse to answer and if my lawyer advised it, I would have said no!

Me too. If I had nothing to hide, I'd have provided the colour of my grandmother's eyes if I was asked!

Yes Kate was acting within her rights but what about her responsibilities?

I would think any lawyer would advise on the evidence and the status of the client, which in Kate's case was arguido and if Kate was advised not to answer questions there is a legal reason for it. Yes, she could have decided to go against her lawyer but if her lawyer advised her that the best outcome for her was not to answer, she may have thought it best in all the circumstances. Kate and her lawyer, remember, would have been mindful about charges being brought and arrests being made so by taking her lawyer's advice, perhaps in her mind she was keeping herself out of custody which, the pro's would argue, was best for Madeleine.

I don't think for one minute it has anything to do with the quality of the questions, although I can see nothing wrong in them, its more to do with legalities, with getting out of there.

Arguidos don't get to choose the questions the Police ask them. They either answer the questions or they don't. Both decisions have consequences.

Ah! Consequences. Always tricky . Pity the parents didn't think about them when they decided to leave the children.
