MADELEINE McCann supporters have called for her parents to get more money to continue trying to find the missing girl.

They have rallied to tell the Home Secretary: “Madeleine is priceless. You cannot put a price on her life.”

Campaigners are demanding Sajid Javid give the green light to Scotland Yard to carry on searching when their money runs out in just eleven days.

The Met Police has not yet applied for more cash but they say they are “currently in dialogue” with the Home Office who insists it would need to “carefully consider” any fresh requests.



Kellie Howe posted this week on the official Find Maddie Facebook page, endorsed by her parents: "Fingers crossed the new Home Secretary backs us the way Theresa May has.

"You cannot put a price on her life. There should never be a limit where they say ‘too much money has been spent.’
“She is priceless and just as Gerry said in May 2007 ‘We will leave no stone unturned.’

“Hoping this is our last round of funding because it is the round that brings Madeleine home to where she belongs.”



Denise Wynne added: “Be safe and come home dear sweet Madeleine. There is hope and faith that you will someday return to your family who are never going to stop looking for you.

"It was such a cruel thing that happened when you were kidnapped.”

Three-year-old Maddie vanished from an apartment in Portugal’s Praia da Luz during a family holiday in May 2007.

She and her younger twin siblings had been left sleeping alone in their beds while Kate the McCann’s were dining in a nearby tapas restaurant with pals.

So far the inquiry into her disappearance, launched in May 2011 on orders of the then Prime Minister David Cameron, has cost the British taxpayer a staggering £11.6 million.

Heart doctor Gerry and ex GP turned medical worker Kate, both 50, are currently on tenterhooks again not knowing if the hunt for their eldest child will continue of be shelved.

Friends and members of public are rallying round to give them a D-day boost with heart warming and positive messages posted on social media.

Charlotte Metcalf enthused: “It would be one of the best days of my life when Madeleine is found. I think of her often and pray that God is looking after her no matter the circumstances.”

Suzi Kerslake added: “Never give up on you Maddie you are out there somewhere. We all want you hone safe and with your family.”

A source close to the family told The Sun Online today: “To have positive and supportive messages like these gives Kate and Gerry a boost and they are grateful to everyone, everywhere who hopes and prays with them that Madeleine can still be found alive.”

Whilst the couple from Rothley, Leics, are “keeping fingers crossed” the search will carry on for another six months they realise funding could be refused by the Home Office special grants committee, and if members are undecided they will turn to the Home Secretary for his final say.

A Home Office spokesperson said today: “To date no request has been received from the Metropolitan Police Service to extend funding for Operation Grange beyond the end of September 2018.

"Before we would even consider an application from the Met Police to continue its Operation Grange inquiry we need to know what work is left to be done and how much it would cost.”

A Yard spokesperson said: “We are currently in dialogue with the Home Office regarding future funding for Operation Grange.”

Cops on the scaled down inquiry have secretly continued to visit the Algarve searching for possible clues to Maddie’s whereabouts but are not believed to be any step closer to finding her abductor during their high profile and at times controversial seven year investigation.

Kate and Gerry, who have 13-year-old twins Sean and Amelie, cling onto a glimmer of hope their daughter - who would now be aged 15 - could still be alive.

No mention of where the money is going to come from considering the constant decline of police numbers through lack of funding and why 'No Stone Unturned' remains an untapped resource to fund the searches.

Unquote.

Why do they continue to press ahead with an abduction theory despite no evidence that such an event took place. All avenues including; a wheelchair bound cancer patient who couldn't even get up the stairs to the apartment and an even Australian multi-millionairess, (to whom they had to apologise profusely), all led to nowhere.

The canine and physical evidence of large blood deposits and blood being cleansed away in an apartment where no reports of any incident were recorded and  canine evidence of Cadaverine inside and outside the apartment, again where no reports of death had been reported. The blood and DNA evidence was declared not sound and the Laboratory closed down. The canine evidence was poo-poohed by Gerry in a TV interview when remarking on the success's of the dogs in other cases in finding pieces of a human skull; " It was probably a coconut shell". Did the met conveniently forget that particular case and all others where canine discoveries had proven their cases for the police?

Seems GA wants to put the record straight regarding ECHR....


http://portugalresident.com/uk-media-accused-of-trailing-fake-mccann-stories-to-%E2%80%9Cpressure-the-european-court%E2%80%9D



Posted by PORTUGALPRESS on September 20, 2018
UK media accused of trailing fake McCann stories to “pressure the European Court”

As a new funding deadline approaches for Operation Grange - the UK police inquiry that has spent over €12 million ‘searching for Madeleine McCann - British newspapers have been running with “fake stories” centring on the possibility that the Madeleine Fund is in danger of being wiped out by a new court action lodged by former PJ detective Gonçalo Amaral.

The Mail has inferred that a court case brought by Amaral is “due to start in the next few weeks” while the Sun describes the situation as a “Euro court showdown”.

The truth is that the case due to be heard has been instigated by the McCanns themselves and has nothing whatsoever to do with former PJ coordinator Gonçalo Amaral, who has been at pains to distance himself from media hype ever since the McCann’s long-running case to sue him for €1 million failed in the Supreme Court, Portugal’s final court of jurisdiction (click here).

Since that time, costs incurred by the McCanns (and awarded against them) have been left hanging.

The couple’s bid to overturn the Supreme Court judgement has failed twice (click here and click here), thus the jury is definitely out on the merits of this appeal to the European Court of Human Rights.

But as to the case being anything to do with Amaral, the former detective has been in touch to put the record straight:

“There are stories being printed saying I am taking the couple to court. It’s a lie. I have never received any kind of indemnity from them and I have never asked for one.

“The case they have lodged in the European court is not against me, but the Portuguese State.

“These lies just serve to make out that they are victims, to ask for more money and to pressure the European Court”.

The father-of-two who has long since maintained that the McCanns have set out to “assassinate” his “civil position”, said: “They should explain how much of the money of the Fund they have spent on court cases.

“For example, how much they have spent on lawyers fees. These were thousands of pounds not spent on looking for their daughter”.


Amaral’s treatment by the British press has been constant for the last decade.

This week the Sun has called him “disgraced” (when in fact he won the case taken out against him by the McCanns at least three times) and his theory that the parents could have covered up their daughter’s accidental death “shameful” and “ludicrous”.

As to the possibility that the Madeleine Fund could be “wiped out” if the European Court dismisses the McCann’s appeal, this is not news. The situation of the Fund was highlighted by all newspapers in March last year. In fact, Jerry Lawton of the Daily Star referred to the McCanns “going for broke” and using the Madeleine Fund to pay for their legal fees, even though this was something they had originally vowed they would never do (click here).

With the deadline for a decision on further funding for the Metropolitan Police search approaching, other UK newspapers have highlighted “an honest interview” with Madeleine’s father
Gerry where he discusses his struggles with depression as a result of the stress of losing a child.

The interview is due to be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on September 29.

Of course it's a lie that Mr. Amaral is taking the McCanns to court. The McCanns' case is against Portugal. I figured Gerry's "feel sorry for us" was not just for personal sympathy but for additional funding in the event the government didn't come through for them again. I hope Mr. Amaral sues the U.K. papers which continue to defame him. If he requires funds to do so I will be happy to help support him; please keep posters aware if there is a campaign to help support such an endeavour.

Really hopes he will sue - Mr Amaral has been very damaged by this case and his family too
