Madeleine McCann 'Died In Holiday Apartment'

Jon di Paolo, in Lisbon
A report into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, signed by a police chief, said she had died in the family's holiday apartment, a court has been told.

The lawyer in charge of the original inquiry into Madeleine's disappearance said the report was signed by Tavares De Almeida, who was chief inspector of police at the time Madeleine vanished.

Jose Magalhaes e Menezes also revealed that text messages sent by Kate and Gerry McCann were intercepted by police who were suspicious about their role in their daughter's disappearance.

But the texts were not considered as part of the investigation because a judge would not allow it.

Watch below for live coverage of the trial from Sky News Online's Jon di Paolo.

Mr Menezes was the first witness called at a libel trial brought by the McCanns against former police chief Goncalo Amaral. His book claimed Madeleine had died in the family's apartment in the holiday resort of Praia da Luz in May 2007.

Mr Menezes said the decision to designate the McCanns 'arguidos' - or suspects - was taken by police after sniffer dogs brought to Portugal from England had carried out their searches.

Giving evidence, Mr de Almeida told the court that the dogs identified blood and the smell of a human body inside the dining room of the holiday flat and in the car the McCanns were using.

The animals also found a scent on a piece of cloth in a flat rented by the McCanns after they left the apartment.

No-one can be allowed to say that our daughter can't be found without very good evidence.

Gerry McCann

The McCanns are seeking £1m compensation and a final ruling preventing Mr Amaral from repeating the claims he made about them.

The McCanns' lawyer told the court that the couple were prepared to give evidence but only after Mr Amaral had done so.

The case may now last longer than its expected three days because a new witness - named as Luis Frois - is being called by the McCann team.

Coronation street to go ahead with missing child storyline

Post  Keela on Tue 12 Jan - 13:39

Daily Mail report that a planned storyline about a missing child is to go ahead. It was shelved following Maddy's disappearance as there were similarities. I have posted a comment about dragging the McCanns into any missing child storyline. No doubt won't be posted.

I googled it and apparently he was a Portuguese missionary who was born in 1532. Do you think he will manage it? I would not put anything past the McCanns

Corrie scripts are far and away more believable storylines than McCann / Mitchell spin, sasha.

But, whatever your views, today's events are a big news story. They spent five minutes on a "filler" on packed lunches at schools - the sort of item which can be used on a slow news day.

Hi Alfie, No the Leicester McMercury is still reporting that K&G are on their way to Lisbon... We'll probably not hear anything about the court case in the Mercury until the saintly duo are back in residence here the UK.

Madeleine McCann 'Died In Holiday Apartment'

6:16pm UK, Tuesday January 12, 2010

Andy Jack, Sky News Online

A report into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, signed by a police chief, said she had died in the family's holiday apartment, a court has been told.

The lawyer in charge of the original inquiry into Madeleine's disappearance said the report was signed by Tavares De Almeida, who was chief inspector of police at the time Madeleine vanished.

Jose Magalhaes e Menezes also revealed that text messages sent by Kate and Gerry McCann were intercepted by police who were suspicious about their role in their daughter's disappearance.

But the texts were not considered as part of the investigation because a judge would not allow it.

Mr Menezes was the first witness called at a libel trial brought by the McCanns against former police chief Goncalo Amaral. His book claimed Madeleine had died in the family's apartment in the holiday resort of Praia da Luz in May 2007.

But Mr Menezes said he thought the probability of Madeleine being alive was 50/50.

He said the decision to designate the McCanns 'arguidos' - or suspects - was taken by police after sniffer dogs brought to Portugal from England had carried out their searches.

Giving evidence, Mr de Almeida said that the dogs identified blood and the smell of a human body inside the dining room of the holiday flat and in the car the McCanns were using.

The animals also found a scent on a piece of cloth in a flat rented by the McCanns after they left the apartment.

One of the dogs was in a nervous, excitable state, and wanted to get into the room, according to a report by British police, said Mr de Almeida.

No-one can be allowed to say that our daughter can't be found without very good evidence.

Gerry McCann


Mr de Almeida accused both the British authorities and British police of hindering the investigation by withholding information.

Next to give evidence was police inspector Ricardo Paiva. He was the family liaison officer but was taken off the case at the request of the McCanns.

Asked if he ever got the impression from the McCanns that they thought Madeleine could be dead. He said yes.

The McCanns are seeking £1m compensation and a final ruling preventing Mr Amaral from repeating the claims he made about them.

The McCanns' lawyer told the court that the couple were prepared to give evidence but only after Mr Amaral had done so.

The case may now last longer than its expected three days because a new witness - named as Luis Frois - is being called by the McCann team.

Mr Amaral was in charge of the investigation launched when Madeleine McCann disappeared shortly before her fourth birthday.

He was taken off the case the following October after criticising British police in a newspaper interview.

Mr and Mrs McCanns' status as arguidos was lifted when the investigation was shelved in July 2008.

The same month, Mr Amaral published a book called Maddie: The Truth Of The Lie, in which he called into question the McCanns' account that she had been abducted.

Arriving in Lisbon, Mr McCann said: "No-one can be allowed to say that our daughter can't be found without very good evidence. That's what this court case is about."

Mrs McCann said: "We're looking for justice."

The couple, both 41, from Rothley, Leicestershire, have said that any damages awarded to them would go towards paying for private investigators to look for their daughter.

The Sun - Online McCann parents face ex cop lie claim!!!!

Post  tabs on Tue 12 Jan - 18:50

http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/2804154/Maddie-McCann-parents-will-face-ex-cop-Goncalo-Amarals-lie-claim.html

By ANTONELLA LAZZERI

Published: Today
KATE and Gerry McCann today face being wrongly accused in court of hiding the body of missing daughter Maddie.

They flew to Portugal yesterday to see ex-police chief Goncalo Amaral try to lift a ban on his book, The Truth of the Lie.

Amaral, who led the initial hunt for Maddie, claims in the book she is dead and the couple made up the story of the three-year-old being abducted in Portugal in 2007.

Amaral, 54 - now retired - is expected to call three ex-colleagues to back his allegations.

He will tell the Lisbon hearing what led him to believe the couple lied.

A source close to the McCanns from Rothley, Leics, said: "It may be traumatic for them to hear terrible things said about them and Madeleine but they want to be there for her sake."

The McCanns had the book banned last year.

Not sure what you mean. But channel 103. It is now saying that the police changed their mind when Kate told them she had dreamed Madeleine was dead. Then unbelievably they have just said the prosecutor said he thought Madeleine was still alive. That is totally garbage. How dare they.
