Operation Grange asking for more money

Post  Wintabells on Fri 1 Mar - 22:12

I heard this reported on the radio this evening.
It seems Scotland Yard are asking for more funding to investigate what the reporter referred to as 'one last line of enquiry'. Some spokesman or other said something along the lines of, 'there isn't much evidence on this last line, but the investigation team want to follow it up'.
Wonder what it could be?

I've lost track of how many times I've heard about this "one last line of enquiry". Now "there isn't much evidence" on it, but they still want more funding.

THERE WILL BE INVESTIGATING UNTIL 2126 WHEN SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN 120 AT THIS RATE.

‘Strange inconsistencies’ in new ‘request for further Maddie investigation funding’

‘Stange inconsistencies’ in the latest request for renewed funding for the now eight-year-old Metropolitan Police investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann have prompted critics into suggesting that ‘no money is being spent at all’.

Indeed, self-styled ‘campaigners for the truth’ believe the investigation itself may have wound up some time ago.

Supporting the theory appears to be the fact that this time round – and indeed the last (only a few months ago when Grange received a further £150,000 in funding) – almost no direct quotes from the investigative team, or even the Met, have been used.

Whereas in the past, detectives have described “the last throw of the dice” (click here), this time round – when the call appears to be for a further £300,000 to be added to the £11.75 million already allegedly spent – there is nothing seemingly to substantiate the request.
Says the Independent, “the Met has refused to comment” – while online criticism under mainstream media texts is adamant that the time for spending yet more taxpayers money on this seemingly unsolvable case has long since passed.

A source for the Complete Mystery of Madeleine McCann, an online site/ group that has made no bones of its belief that Grange has never been anything more than an “expensive farce looking in the wrong direction” suggests there are very good reasons for continuing with ‘cash request’ announcements.

“We made it clear as a group over two years ago that if Grange was finally ‘closed’ we would be pushing for a new investigation with an unlimited remit”, said the group’s leading light Jill Havern (click here).

“Once any investigation is closed, the door opens for the press and members of the public to make Freedom of Information requests (FOIs).

“Ultimately, as we explained two years ago, we would have to make a Misconduct in Public Office complaint.

“Then of course there is the ‘second book’ that former detective Gonçalo Amaral said he would be releasing ‘once Grange was concluded’.

“All in all, we are beginning to think that Grange and the government are simply afraid of what would happen if they admit to shutting the investigation down.

“None of us can tell if it really has been receiving funds.

“There are no updates, except for ridiculous stories about looking for a woman in purple, or the equally ridiculous Julian Totman story.

“Maybe they’re waiting for Brexit, who knows. Won’t that mean no EAWs (European Arrest Warrants)?”

(For readers unaware of the ‘Julian Totman story’, this relates to a British doctor who apparently came forwards in 2007 to say he believed he was the man ‘seen’ carrying a small child in pyjamas by one of the McCann friends on the night Madeleine disappeared, but whose testimony was ignored until many years later.)

Thus, for now, the mystery persists, in all possible aspects.

The Met is saying nothing, the Home Office is apparently ‘considering’ the new funding request, and an answer is due ‘next month’ – almost 12 years since three-year-old Madeleine McCann vanished during a family holiday to the Algarve village of Praia da Luz.

Thanks for the update.
It's looking ever more likely that the McCanns have someone by the short and curlies.
Coupled with the unreported, (as far as I'm aware) fact that they are not cooperating with Netflix (who I believe is wanting to make an eight part series of the disappearance of their child).
Anyone else heard of this?

I read today that the Neflix series has been "delayed"; makes me wonder if the McCanns have obtained an injunction.

Hi tanzi and interested, I'm sure that their mouthpiece will be heavily involved with blocking any unwanted unsupervised or uncensored intervention/involvement by film crews or media outlets even 12 years after Madeleine's disappearance.

Even though Blair and Brown are no longer on hand to close the door on any prying or inquisitive reporting or suggestive scripting by screenplay writers there must be a consensus across our 'Honourable Members' of all parties that the McCanns secret must be withheld from the public domain.

I certainly wouldn't want their conscience...

"Honourable"??? I don't know any of them can sleep at night, or if any of those involved in the coverup even have a single conscience among them.

Honourable is not a word to usually associated, certainly in the same sentence as MP's or members of families with exceptionally poor parenting skills...
But, on a more happier note it seems as if the McCanns have been unsuccessful in calling a halt to the Netflix screening.
It looks like the 8 part Netflix series is due to start on Friday March 15th 2019.
