OPEN LETTER TO THE MCCANNS

Post  kitti on Thu 20 Feb - 9:35

**OPEN LETTER TO KATE AND GERRY McCANN**

Kate and Gerry,

On 23rd November 2011 you appeared together at the Leveson Inquiry to give evidence regarding your treatment at the hands of the press, according to you, for "one simple reason" - that a system should be put in place to protect ordinary people from the damage that the media can cause.

The nation was aghast as you recounted how "distraught" you were by suggestions in the newspapers that you were responsible for your daughter's death.

Gerry, you told the inquiry that many of these stories were "offensive and objectionable, untruthful, sinister or made up", fuelled by, you suggested, a "tremendous amount of speculation".

You said that you felt that you and Kate were being tried by the media and were unable to defend yourselves.

Kate, you told the inquiry that you felt "totally violated" after News Of The World printed extracts from your diary and that you felt there was absolutely no respect shown to you as a grieving mother.

(You neglected to mention at the time that you were compensated to the tune of £125,000 for this 'violation' on top of the £550,00 you received along with front page apologies from Express Newspapers alone in 2008)

After Leveson made his recommendations in early 2013 you made various appearances, both separately and together, on BBC News, Sky News, the Andrew Marr Show, representing Hacked Off in order to lobby the government to implement Leveson's recommendations.

Gerry, you made a keynote speech at the Hacked Off conference in February 2013, where you said:

"I don’t often find myself making speeches at events like this. But I’m happy to do so for Hacked Off, because I passionately believe in the cause.

Kate and I had the misfortune to suffer the worst that the press could throw at us.

• We were labelled as murderers without a shred of evidence.

• Rumours were dressed up as the truth

• and downright lies became front-page news.

An insatiable hunt for headlines combined with a total lack of respect for other people. The mentality that can turn a family’s distress into cold, hard cash. Profit from misery."

So...with all of the above in mind:

When are you going to condemn the Daily Mirror for labelling Euclides Monteiro as the "No 1 SUSPECT" in Madeleine's disappearance on their front page??

Have you considered that this man's wife and family may feel "totally violated" by this speculation?

Do you think there has been any respect shown to his grieving widow, his parents, siblings and other family?

He has been labelled a junkie and a jailbird in the Daily Mirror and other newspapers. Does that have anything to do with your daughter's disappearance?

Do you feel that this man is being "being tried by the media" and is unable to defend himself? Or that his family may find the headlines "offensive and objectionable"?

Is it possible that rumour is being dressed up as truth or that downright lies are becoming front page news?

Is it right that his widow feels she has to talk to the newspapers in order to defend a man who is no longer around to defend himself? You once bemoaned Colin Myler, former editor of News Of The World for, you claimed, beating you into submission verbally until you agreed to give him an interview - are you satisfied that Monteiro's widow hasn't been "beaten into submission"?

Having had the misfortune to suffer the worst that the press could throw at you, do either of you have any sympathy for this man's widow?

Gerry, you complained that Leveson's recommendations didn't go far enough. Therefore do you agree that this would be the ideal opportunity for you to illustrate that very point?

Or were your Leveson and Hacked Off sorties merely attempts to serve your own agenda?

Until you publicly condemn the irresponsible behaviour of the media with regards to this man and the many others who have been linked to Madeleine's disappearance with little or no evidence whatsoever, you appear hypocritical, self-serving and in possession of the most appalling double standards.

Yours sincerely hoping that you will receive all that you deserve in the near future,
