Blunders would never happen in Britain

Post  Guest on Fri 8 Aug - 6:43

The release of the Madeleine McCann police files reveal the failure of the police properly to investigate her disappearance, a former detective claimed today.

Child protection expert Mark Williams-Thomas said “bungling” Portuguese police should have released the e-fits of the two suspicious men seen hanging around Praia da Luz just before the little girl vanished.

And they should have acted immediately to investigate the possible Dutch sighting, he said.

Shop assistant Anna Stam, 41, told detectives she spoke to a little girl aged three or four in Amsterdam who said her name was “Maddie” and replied to a question about her mother: “They took me from my holiday.”

“These files reveal the inadequacies of the police investigation,” said Mr Williams-Thomas.

“There is absolutely no excuse for failing to release those e-fits. What value is there in doing a photofit unless you’re going to release it?

“They have failed to do some of the very basics.”

He said the police clearly had “no media strategy”, and narrowed their investigation “very quickly” to looking at the McCanns.

If they failed to follow up the Amsterdam lead then by now it is probably of no use , he said.

Over time, the value of the tip-off deteriorates as CCTV is wiped or lost and other possible witnesses forget or cannot be contacted.

“The information from Amsterdam is probably of no value now at all - because if it was something that was real then you needed to act upon it straight away.

“She could be anywhere by now.”

He accused the police of “giving up” and said the evidence should have been reviewed by another force before being made public.

“The file should have been made available to another law enforcement agency from another country and they should have been able to review it before it was made public.

“There is information there which should not have been put in the public domain and should have been followed up. It is a huge blunder to make it public.

“They have given up. They have have completely given up. The only people looking for Madeleine are the McCanns. The police are absolving themselves of responsibility.

“What we’ve got now is a public investigation - it’s extraordinary. Fifteen months after she went missing they have closed the case and given up - it would never happen in Britain.”

Someone should inform Mr Williams-Thomas about this website http://www.missingkids.co.uk/

It does happen in Britain but the media doesnt even give it a mention.

Mr Williams-Thomas should also take a little time to research before acting the clown together with the pink pompus pig. The Dutch sighting WAS followed up and its in the files which the journalists now have. This link is the proof.
