I tagged some information on the end of my last post without thinking it through.

The dates are of interest as there seems to have been a sudden flurry of activity between the Mccanns , their backer Brian Kennedy and Robert Murat the time this bag was alleged to have been found.

It would appear the bag and its contents were pure fabrication , they are not in the Police files and no mention of them in Dr.Amarals book.

Therefore can be only one reason this story was released and that was to threaten, or silence someone.

Jane Tanner, why did she lie? Why was she chosen when she makes such a bad job of it ?. I can think of ONLY one reason and that is her deep love for her partner, Russell O’ Brian.

Did Russell O’ Brian out of some misguided loyalty decide to help his friend Gerry Mccann....?

The bag alleged to have been found containing Madeleines DNA, was reported by the press...November 3rd 2007

The story that two of the Tapas wanted to change their statements was reported.....November llth 2007

Robert Murat , his mother, Brian Kennedy,his lawyer Edward Smethurst and Murats lawyer Francisco Pagarete met at Burgau on ........Wednesday November 13th 2007.

Maddie DNA clue in airport bag Traces found on fleece and stained jeans 
By Dominic Herbert, 03/11/2007 

A BAG of clothes containing DNA linked to Madeleine McCann has been found dumped by a road in Portugal. 

The white carrier bag was discovered in a layby two weeks ago near Faro airport, the News of the World can reveal. 

Maddie's parents Kate and Gerry McCann have learned the bag contained a blue fleece jacket and a pair of adult jeans with traces of DNA that contained "moderate" links to the missing four-year-old. 

There was also a SHOWER CURTAIN inside.

Madeleine: Changes in evidence from Tapas Nine could 'dramatically change investigation' 
09 November 2007 

Changes in the evidence of two of the so-called Tapas Nine could "dramatically change" the Madeleine McCann investigation, it was claimed yesterday. 

The pair who allegedly want to correct their version of events were named yesterday in a Portuguese newspaper as Russell O'Brian and his partner Jane Tanner . 

Miss Tanner has given a key account of seeing a man carrying a child away from the McCanns' apartment. Both her and Dr O'Brian deny that they have contacted police to change their statements........ 

Once again JANE TANNER and WHY it is so important to her that you know she did not have JEANS with her when MADELEINE disappeared.

She is not asked what clothing she wore on that night, but volunteers the information. And goes on to explain she was wearing one of RUSSELS fleeces.

QUOTE I remember I was wearing, because it was cold, I’d got Russell’s big, I’d borrowed one of his, erm, fleeces, so I’d got a big sort of fleece, it probably came down to about here, but then I’d got flip-flops on and cropped trousers, because I’d only got, I didn’t take jeans, I know I didn’t take jeans on holiday, and then. 

The fabricated article of the bag found along the road to FARO airport and its list of contents are of no importance...just the two items are relevant above the reporter Dominic Herberts name. MADDIE DNA: TRACES FOUND ON FLEECE AND STAINED JEANS.

The Missing blue bag...... does it contain the FLEECE and JEANS ? ‘ and if so, who has it and where is it ?

.....AND if a good friend helped you in a bad situation, why would you keep it to use as a weapon against him?

SNIFFER DOGS ‘Found Scent of Death’ on McCanns Friend


THE SUN reported on October 21st, 2008. 

KATE McCann and three friends discussed child-snatchers hours before daughter Madeleine disappeared, it has emerged. Dr Russell O'Brien, one of the so-called Tapas Seven, told police of the "haunting" conversation had while on holiday in Portugal last year. 

He said it came up after another father said he felt awkward photographing his own child. Dr O'Brien, 37, was with his partner Jane Tanner, 37, Rachel Oldfield, 37, and Kate, 40. 

He said: "We then had a conversation about the ludicrous pressure on parents that they can't take photos of their children. Stranger "The other aspect of the conversation, which is doubly haunting, was that we said, 'You're far more likely to get clobbered by your uncle or your neighbour than some random stranger'. "Since this happened ten or 11 hours before Madeleine was abducted, it seemed a very uncomfortable coincidence." 

The doctor, of Exeter, Devon, made his comments in April as he was quizzed by British cops at the request of the Portuguese authorities. 

THE DAILY MAIL reported September, 26th, 2007. 


Friends of the McCanns faced fresh allegations yesterday after it was claimed that sniffer dogs had found the "scent of death" on one of them. 

The same police dog which reacted to Mrs McCann's clothes - first causing suspicion to fall on her - was alleged to have smelled "death" on one of the friends who had dinner with the couple the night Madeleine vanished. 

Police sources briefed a Portuguese newspaper that two police dogs from South Yorkshire, trained to detect corpses, human remains and microscopic traces of blood, had reacted to some items of clothing. 

Family spokesman Clarence Mitchell denied categorically that any such procedure had happened. The newspaper did not reveal which of the friends' clothing was meant to have triggered the reaction. 

Police in South Yorkshire refused to comment. Detectives are writing to British police asking them to re-interview the seven friends the McCanns dined with on the night Madeleine vanished. 

Madeleine's parents were dining in a tapas restaurant just yards from the apartment in the Mark Warner Resort in the Algarve, Portugal, when their daughter disappeared. She had been sleeping inside the apartment with her brother and sister, twins Sean and Amelie. 

According to reports from Portugal, all of those dining with the McCanns that night face further police questioning because their accounts of the night's events allegedly clashed. 

Leicestershire police have consistently refused to comment on its role in the investigation and directed all questions to Portugal. A spokeswoman said: "As the inquiry into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann is a Portuguese police investigation it is not appropriate for us to comment on it. Our role is to assist the Portuguese authorities, when and if they request it, with UK based inquiries. "But because it is a Portuguese investigation, and because of the judicial system there, we are not able to disclose the nature of those inquires." 

The seven friends - who, with the McCanns, make up the Tapas Nine - have been steadfast in their loyalty to Madeleine's family. The group - most of them doctors and professionals - was made up of: 

Dr Russell O'Brien, 36

A consultant in acute medicine at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital, he knew Gerry McCann from Leicester. He was on holiday with his partner Jane Tanner and their two young daughters. At 9.25pm he left the restaurant for around 25 minutes to check on one of the girls, who was ill. He has been subject to a vicious Portuguese press campaign alleging he was absent for over an hour when Madeleine went missing. He has threatened to sue, insisting: "These reports are completely untrue and extremely hurtful."

Jane Tanner, 37 

Dr O'Brien's partner. She arrived late at the tapas bar after treating their sick daughter. On the way, she passed the McCanns' apartment and saw a man carrying a child. Crucially, her description of the child's clothes matched Madeleine's pink pyjamas. 

Dr Matthew Oldfield, 37 

Dr Oldfield, an endocrinologist at Kingston Hospital in South-West London, went to check the McCann children at 9 25pm. But he did not look inside the flat - simply listened from outside to ensure Madeleine and the twins were not crying. 

Rachael Oldfield, 36 

Dr Oldfield's wife, a former lawyer who is now a recruitment consultant. She is one of four witnesses who claim to have seen the first suspect, British expat Robert Murat, near the McCanns' flat. Last month she angrily dismissed reports that police had intercepted phone calls and emails between the McCanns and their friends which contradicted the group's earlier statements. Mrs Oldfield accused Portuguese police of "throwing mud when we are not able to defend oursleves" 

David Payne, 41 

Mr Payne is a senior research fellow in cardiovascular sciences at Leicester University He and his wife and mother-in-law joined the group at 8.55pm. They are believed to have been the only ones using a baby monitor to check on their two children. Mr Payne has said: "All these smears and rumours are overshadowing the important thing, which is to get Madeleine back." 

Dr Fiona Payne, 34 

Mr Payne's wife, she is understood to have told police she saw Mr Murat shortly after Madeleine vanished. Dr Payne and her husband stayed on in the Algarve to support the McCanns. When the couple were made official suspects, she said: "It's an outrage - a preposterous accusation." 

Dianne Webster Dr Payne's mother. 

She has given no public interviews. 

(This newspaper article STILL available on the Internet and RUSSELL O’BRIAN, it would seem, has not sued anyone. The Daily Mail ,did not use the word ALLEGED ,which gets you out of a tight spot where the Mccanns lawyers Carter Ruck are concerned.)

---------------------------- AND now looking at some facts about the SHY Dr.Russell O’Brian and how kind the police were to him in Leicestershire and how unfortunate the video for his first interview seemed to have ‘Technical failure’.

Not only that, the kind Policeman let Russell read Jane Tanners,( his partners) statement to remind him of the events . THE EVENTS, who could forget the events of May 3rd 2007?

What kind of person would need to ‘REFRESH’ their memory of such a dreadful night? how could anyone forget the ‘disappearance’ of a child, NOT anychild, BUT their friends child, MADELEINE. (Is it within the law to allow a witness to check anothers statement ? OR ,was this to make sure they both agreed ? It seems Leicestershire Constabulary make up their own rules where these Doctors are concerned.)

RUSSELL O’BRIAN said. ------------------------ "I have been given the opportunity to refresh my memory at the start of the report by Jane Tanner (partner) and it allowed me to see these documents, which have been done in the presence of DC 1578 Gierc," said O 'Brien. (O'Brien was interviewed twice, on 8 and April 10, 2008, but strangely, his first interview could not be recorded on video because, according to British police, there would be a "technical failure") The second interview, Russell O'Brien by the officer Andrew Gierc, was recorded on video.

CURIOUS AND INTERESTING O’BRIANS partner JANE TANNER gave her witness statement to PJ May 4th, 2007 The time 11.30 am JANE was clear about the type of clothing she saw the ‘abductor’ wearing. He was wearing linen type cloth trousers, beige to golden in colour, a “duffy” sic type jacket (but not that thick).

KATE McCANN Did not give her statement until 2.20 pm the afternoon of May 4th. Kate and Jane would have had plenty of time to talk about the man she saw and what he was wearing...

LOOK what Kate McCann has to say. Thus, at around 9pm, her husband went to the apartment to make sure the twins, as well as Madeleine, were OK, then he went back to the restaurant. Her husband said that the children were doing well and that he had bumped into the person with whom he had played tennis, a person who has two children. At the same time, one of the group of friends, Russell, went to see his children, without checking on the interviewee's children. Later, a member of the group, Russell's partner Jane, when she went to her apartment to see her children at around 9.15pm, saw from the back [rear] about 50 metres away, on the perimeter road of the club, a long-haired person, in what she thinks were jeans, with a child in his arms and walking very quickly.

But she is better able to tell you about that herself. --------------------------- JEANS.....I am interested as to why Kate mentions JEANS when her friend has already stated the clothes were linen and the colour beige. KATE also mentions the ‘abductor’ had LONG hair.....again without being prompted, states JANE will be able to tell you about that herself, BUT Kate knew Tanner had already been interviewed.

JEANSs seem to have been on JANE TANNERS mind a her rogatory statement without being prompted she feels she must explain she did not take JEANS on holiday to PDL. Reply “Yeah. Erm, I’m just trying to, well I’ve walked out of the, walked out of the, erm, the Tap, you know, walked sort of into the reception of the Tapas Bar and obviously walked up the road. I remember I was wearing, because it was cold, I’d got Russell’s big, I’d borrowed one of his, erm, fleeces, so I’d got a big sort of fleece, it probably came down to about here, but then I’d got flip-flops on and cropped trousers, because I’d only got, I didn’t take jeans, I know I didn’t take jeans on holiday, and then. Oh I’m sidetracking a bit, but that’s why I knew one of the pictures in the paper wasn’t from the holiday, because I hadn’t got jeans on the holiday with me, so. Erm, yeah, and I’d got cropped trousers on and just flip-flops, so I can remember sort of walking, I couldn’t walk that quickly because I’d got these silly flip-flops on and I couldn’t walk that, that well in them, so to speak."

JEREMY WILKINS had already seen JANE TANNER earlier in the evening of May 3rd, standing outside an apartment, she was wearing a PURPLE dress.

TANNER talks of a photograph in the newspaper of her wearing JEANS.... If this photograph exists has anyone seen it.? If they have, it is IMPORTANT to JANE for you to know it was NOT taken in PDL. The ONLY photograph to my knowledge of TANNER, outside of PDL is of her on the COURT steps to collect her money..which she gave to the FUND.

Back to the ‘Sensational Journalism’ and the JEANS. The McCanns are desperate to get their hands on information PJ still have ..information ONLY known to them.

Their meeting and talks of REVIEWS have nothing to do with wanting the case re-opened, it has been three years and we all know this is something those in the’ know ‘will never let happen. BUT I have to wonder if the JEANS exist, are they in the hands of PJ and do they hold ‘The scent of cadaver?’

Why did Kate McCann say a long haired person wearing JEANS.?...TANNER has long hair BUT insists any photographs of her that MAY exist wearing JEANS were not from when she was in PDL. Is there a tourist out there somewhere with a photograph ot TANNER in the background wearing jeans in PDL?

An unknown tourist who does not realise the significance of this photograph. I have no idea why, but these JEANS are of great importance to JANE TANNER and from KATE MCCANNS suggestion of JEANS in her statement, again ,without being prompted, KATE knows the reason why.

UPDATE: ------- TANNER from her ROGATORY STATEMENT: "I remember what I was wearing because it was cold, I'd borrowed one of RUSSELLS'S FLEECES." "BUT I did not take JEANS with me to PDL:" ----------------------------------------- Jane offered this information about her clothing without being asked. Do you remember the bag found along the road leading to FARO airport and what it contained?

There are two items of interest and if I was a devious person there is a way I could use these items to buy someones silence. Suppose, just suppose, the BLUE BAG missing from the MCCANNS bedroom wardrobe in the apartment was used for a pair of JEANS and a FLEECE.

The owner of the bag promised to dispose of BOTH items BUT just suppose that promise was not fulfilled. If I were a devious person I may just keep them for future use. USE SUCH AS THIS. JUST A REMINDER AS TO WHO IS IN CHARGE....and in case anyone in the future thought of changing their statements.

Maddie DNA clue in airport bag Traces found on fleece and stained jeans 
By Dominic Herbert, 03/11/2007 

A BAG of clothes containing DNA linked to Madeleine McCann has been found dumped by a road in Portugal. The white carrier bag was discovered in a layby two weeks ago near Faro airport, the News of the World can reveal. Maddie's parents Kate and Gerry McCann have learned the bag contained a blue fleece jacket and a pair of adult jeans with traces of DNA that contained "moderate" links to the missing four-year-old. There was also a SHOWER CURTAIN inside.

News of the find came as it emerged police hunting for the youngster have asked the Mafia to help. Crime godfathers in Morocco-where there have been several alleged sightings of Maddie-have been told cops will scale back drug busts if they do. 

Meanwhile, the bag, found by a passer-by, was sent to a UK lab in Birmingham for forensic tests. A leaked report showed experts concluded the clothes contained bodily fluid and traces of hair that could have come from Maddie. Skin Other items recovered from the bag included a white flannel, a green elastic band, a light green child's T-shirt with a green flower on the front and a pink and blue pencil case with a pink heart motif.

A source said: "The bag could be crucial. The DNA isn't an exact match to Maddie's, but it does link. "It is the first clue found outside the apartment complex and could provide a trail." The report-which was handed to detectives ten days ago-was obtained by the News of the World from Portuguese police sources. 

The jeans contained more than 60 different stains. The report concluded: "The blue fleece and jeans were found to contain traces of congealed skin and hair. "They were found to contain DNA characteristics that could be attributed to Madeleine McCann." No traces of Maddie's DNA were found on any of the other items. 

The fresh clues will give Kate and Gerry, both 39, renewed hope of finding their daughter alive six months after she disappeared. Last night a friend of the McCanns said: "It potentially suggests that someone has taken her then disposed of the clothing. "They have done it near Faro which could imply they have gone in the direction of the airport. It backs up the idea she was abducted." 

 Last Sunday the News of the World revealed that the crack Spanish detective agency hired by the McCanns, Metodo 3, are convinced the youngster was snatched to order then smuggled from Portugal to Morocco. Last night it looked like Mafia bosses will AGREE to use their underworld connections in the hunt for Maddie. 

 ---------------- The DNA 'EVIDENCE' was reported November 3rd 2007 We then had this report dated November 11th 2007

DAILY MAIL REPORTED., NOVEMBER 11th 2007 Madeleine:

TEXTUSA, may well be on holiday BUT anyone who has any information they think may be of importance has my mail.

I have this morning received something I think you will find of great interest. Someone ,who has asked for me not to give her name and this is always respected, made arrangements to go with her family to The Ocean Club, but before booking needed some details, she has small children and the arrangement , for an ALL inclusive holiday...this means the ONLY place you may eat breakfast and your evening meal is at the MILLENIUM.

This lady in all her innocence was confused as she understood you could also eat at the TAPAS (ALL INCLUSIVE) but, it appears this is not the case.

Paul Gordon and his family mentioned the ALL package deal and the fact he could ONLY manage to eat twice at the TAPAS bar...WHY? because OCEN CLUB ::::::ONLY have arrangements with the MILLENIUM for eating arrangements ALL inclusive in the package deal.

This is part of JANE TANNERS statement and read very carefully when she is ASKED if the TAPAS BAR is included in the price.

TANNERS STATEMENT _________________ we saw Kate running when we were at the Café Parisio or whatever it was, Kate was running along, we saw Kate running along the beach, so she’d obviously gone for a run. Actually I think that was before, I think that’s, yeah, that’s when we were still on the beach, so it was before we’d gone to the café that we saw Kate running”. 

4078 “Right. So it was before teatime?” 

Reply “Before, yeah. So it would have probably been before five, it would have been sort of, either before, definitely before half past five I would have said we’d seen her, yeah”. 

4078 “And she was on her own?” 

Reply “She was on her own, yeah. Erm, so, yeah, the, sorry, Russell, Matt and Dave went up to, back up to the complex, for want of a better word, to play tennis, because we sort of said ‘Well’”. 

4078 “You’ve got to?” 

Reply “’You’ve got to because’. I think Russell and I are probably more sort of laid back and just go with the flow a bit, but some of the people on the holiday were quite sort of ‘Oh we’ll ask, we’ll get this’, you know, a bit like booking the Tapas Restaurant every night, I don’t think it would ever have crossed Russell and my mind to try and get a block booking, but, erm, you know, I think they sort of”. 

4078 “Once somebody has you feel obliged to go along with it?” 

Reply “Well, I think, yeah, I mean, and we actually did have a conversation, it’s one of those ‘What ifs’ as well, I can remember on the morning of the, Thursday morning by the tennis, at the tennis, somebody in our tennis group had tried to book the Tapas and they couldn’t get in because it was already full. And I can remember thinking at that point, and I just felt, you know, ‘Good’, because they were bloomin’ awkward by booking it out. And they were sort of saying well it’s a bit ridiculous that they couldn’t have got in because they’d booked, they’d tried to book in, you know, they’d been there at nine o’clock to book in and they still couldn’t get in. So, we did, at that point, I can remember having this conversation was ‘Oh shall we go somewhere different’, but it never happened, but. And Kate was, I think Kate was there then, I can’t remember who else, but we did actually say ‘Oh shall we, shall we go somewhere different’. And I think almost at that point we had considered it, but I think the problem was the kids were so tired after having such full days, I think it was more ‘Well it’s worked every other night’. But I know definitely from my point of view I felt quite bad that we were taking this, you know, this block booking every night and it was affecting other people using it”. 

4078 “What were the other options then for eating, was there a good option close by?” 

Reply “No, it was just the Millennium, well in terms of ones that you wouldn’t have to pay extra for, it was the Millennium, which didn’t really start until, I think it was half seven or something, so, you know, by that stage it was, we could have, we could have gone there, so I think. And our kids are probably more, I don’t know, (inaudible) our kids as they are growing up, but we tend to drag our kids with us more, you know, they have never really had a certain bedtime as such, I think”. 

4078 “So they adapted more?” 

Reply “They adapt, they’re more adaptable, yeah. But I think, I normally would have pushed that, but I think because Ella had had the complete, the night before, because she was so tired, so completely lost the plot, we thought ‘She’s tired, lets just, you know, stick with it as it is really’”. 

4078 “And the holiday was all inclusive?” 

Reply “Yeah”. 

4078 “Does the Tapas come under that bracket?” 

Reply “Yeah, yeah, that’s, that’s did, yeah”. 

4078 “Right”. 

______________________________________ QUESTION: " AND the holiday was ALL Inclusive?" TANNER ANSWERS: "YEAH" QUESTION: "DOES THE TAPAS COME UNDER THAT BRACKET" TANNER: "YEAH, YEAH, that's that's did, YEAH"

 --------------------------------------- Breakfast was taken each morning in the MILLENIUM because it was ALL included in the price...The first night they went to the MILLENIUM was because it was included in the price..... e.mail.....

From THE OCEAN CLUB confirming THE TAPAS is NOT part of the HOLIDAY package deal.

Subject: RE: Eating Accomodation 

Dear xxxxxxxxx 

The Tapas restaurant can be used by Mark Warner guest too. They do serve salads, burgers, sandwiches, chips at lunch and then in the evening is pizzeria. 

We do not allocate the apartments at time of booking however, we can request an apartment closer to whichever restaurant you prefer. 

 Hope this helps. 

Many thanks,

TEXTUSA BLOG, thanks the person who sent us this piece of information and there is NO fear her name will ever be disclosed. It is an important detail , one more piece of information to fit this very complex puzzle. One more piece of information that PROVES how easily JANE TANNER lies.

McCanns: SIMULATING Abduction?

The COT and what I believe is PROOF of the staged abduction. Ocean Club employee, Maria Julia de Silva , her witness statement caught my eye because of what she noticed Wednesday morning, May 2nd. Maria cleaned the apartment the day before Madeleine disappeared. 

She remembers that when she entered Apartment 5A on the Wednesday, the parents were inside. After being duly authorized, she entered and carried out her work, because they were already on their way out.

While she was in the apartment, there were no children there, and she supposed that they were in the creche. While performing her work, she remembers having noticed that the couple were sleeping in the room located opposite the entrance, where she confirmed the presence of a child's bed (crib) or cot. 

The room gives onto an outdoor garden by means of a terrace, as it is on the ground floor,. In the room next to the entrance to the apartment there was a bed placed next to the wall (where she supposed the missing child slept), and also the second child's bed (crib). 

All these beds were untidy at the time, meaning that they had been used. She also declares that in the room next to the entrance was another bed that had not been used.


Maria Julia de Silva noticed something of great importance. The COTS or CRIBS.....One being in the parents room and the other in the room Maria presumed Madeleine had slept. 

AND YET the following evening both cots were together in the same room...Madeleines room.... The alleged ‘ABDUCTION’ was the following night and with the arrangement the way it appeared of children sleeping in two seperate rooms are we to believe the ‘abductor’walked around the apartment looking for children to steal?


SILVIA MARIA BATISTA Silvia is responsible for maintenance in ‘The Ocean Club’ Silvia said she was alerted about the disappearance of Madeleine between 22.30 and 23:00. 

She was at home and was informed of the event via a telephone call. She drove immediately to the Ocean Club where she arrived a few minutes before elements of the GNR (Local Police) popped in. 

After she arrived she went immediately to the apartment 5A where she found several people inside the apartment and outside of it. She entered the flat but soon left without having spoken with anyone, because she was informed that elements of the GNR (Local Police )were in the principal reception. 

She went there to meet them. When she came close to the elements of the GNR (Local Police) she found that behind her was Gerry, Madeleine's father, accompanied by another man whose identity she doesn't remember. 

Then Gerry kneeled down, hit the floor with both hands, positioning himself as if he were a praying Arab, and screamed twice of anger, what he said being impossible to understand. Then Gerry stood up and accompanied her (the witness) and the other man in the car of the GNR to apartment 5A. . 

Silvia entered the apartment and asked for the passports of all elements of the family, and also photographs of the missing girl. She went with Gerry to the GNR car to hand over the requested documents. She mentions she did this, as well as other tasks, at the request of the GNR Commandant, because she could translate their questions and the missing girl's family's answers. 

She remembers Gerry gave the Commandant several photographs of the missing girl. They were postcard-like pictures, taking into account their size and shape and seemed all the same to her. (ODD they were so quick to have Madeleines photographs ready to give to the police when thoughts were still the child could have wandered off, it would appear abduction had been decided before the police had even arrived)

Silvia understood also, that since the very beginning either Gerry or the others insisted on stating that Madeleine had been snatched, all using the word "ABDUCTED” instead of MISSING, and all showing much interest in informing the press of the situation. 

She also recalls entering the room where Madeleine should be sleeping and remembers now that the door was closed. The room was dark. The blinds were down, some light entering through their holes. The windows were closed and the curtains slightly open. 

Gerry, who followed her and the elements of the GNR, said he did close the window because of the babies sleeping in the room, a fact she confirms. (...and we must remember the ONLY fingerprints found on the window belonged to Gerrys wife, KATE HEALY.) 

Gerry said that when he discovered the disappearance of Madeleine he noticed that the window and the blinds were open and the curtains fluttering. Why did Gerald McCann interfere with the shutters and window immediately he entered the room after Madeleine had been supposedly discovered missing? Surely he knew this was evidence....BUT he has already explained, he closed them for fear the twins would catch cold. (So, in actual fact there is NO ONE who saw this window open , we once again ONLY have the word of the parents...when Silvia entered the shutters were down she noticed the room was in darkness.) 

Silvia recalls that the beds which were in the middle of the room and used by the babies were aligned and therefore found it strange that someone had taken Madeleine from the bed where she would be sleeping and had gone to the window because there was no space to pass. (AGAIN I draw to your attention the two cots ...which are now BOTH in the same room ...Madeleines room ....and Silvia noticing the cots created a barricade where it was impossible for someone, anyone to pass) 

Silvia opened the wardrobes of that room in order to confirm that Madeleine wasn't eventually hiding there. Then everyone left the room and someone shut the door. She remained for some time in the living room, near the GNR elements, Gerry and other elements of the group who went in and out and spoke on their cellular phones. 

She observed that none of the elements of the group including the father and mother of the child was concerned with looking for her. The mother was sitting on the bed of her room, the father was with her (the witness) and the elements of the GNR, and other elements of the group went in and out and spoke on the phone, anxious, in her opinion, to tell the press what had happened.


The parents were also very anxious to tell family and friends back in England that Apartment 5A had been broken into...The shutters were smashed and Jemmied... 

This of course was a blatant lie there was no break in nor any sign of any smashed or jemmied shutters. Silvia Batista was in the room with Gerry and GNR and at no time does Silvia mention she noticed a broken shutter or Gerry mentioning this to GNR. 

The Mccanns had been very clever, by telephoning their friends the night of May 3rd, the following morning all English TV channels, thanks to the Mccanns,.... family and friends were telling the story as though they themselves had witnessed the event. 

The press were reporting a BREAK-IN and the abduction of three year old Madeleine Mccann. On being made an ARGUIDO Gerry was questioned about the cots, this is what he had to say. 

When questioned, he said that on the day they arrived, April 28, they removed two cribs that were in their room, and placed them in Madeleine's room. He is unable to confirm, but it could be possible, that there were 3 cribs, and they asked them to remove one. It is not true that on a certain day they placed one crib in their room, leaving the other in Madeleine's room.


This is from Kate Healys Police statement May 4th, 2007....the day after Madeleine disappeared. At this point KATE had not thought ahead about the CLEANER and her observation there were TWO COTS, but in seperate rooms.. 

KATE SAID. The apartment has two beds in one bedroom, and two in another where there are also two cots on loan from the Ocean Club. The interviewee and her husband sleep in one bedroom and the three children in the other. The twins sleep in cots, Madeleine in a normal bed, the other bed staying empty.


NOTICE: Kate does not mention a third cot.... Maria Julia de Silva has already confirmed Saturday 28th April, ONLY TWO COTS arrived at apartment 5A. Maria also confirms the TWO COTS May 2nd ,were in separate rooms. 

Maria had by May 2007 worked for ‘The Ocean Club’ for thirteen years. A trusted employee who had no reason to lie, had she Dr. McCann?

TAVARES De ALMEIDA : Madeleine DIED in Apartment

Clarence Mitchell worked hard for his pieces of silver, or tainted gold.. 

The Ambulance chaser quickly WHITEWASHED the damning words said by Tavares de Almeida that Madeleine died in the apartment. 

Goncalo Amaral , we had to be quickly reminded ,was the bad guy here, and ONLY he, we must not stray from the McCanns goal of destroying Amaral and the reason why. 

There were and are no others who thought the poor, poor Mccanns could be involved in the disappearance of their ‘ she was so special ‘ daughter. 

Lets remind ourselves of what really happened in Lisbon before the ‘Paint’ had time to dry back in the U:K: Madeleine McCann died in an accident in her family's Algarve holiday apartment and her death was covered up by her parents who then concocted a tale of kidnap, a Portuguese court was told. 

Kate and Gerry McCann, aged 41 years, were in court to hear how the detectives leading the investigation into Madeleines disappearance believed they had lied to hide the truth. “She died in the apartment as a result of a tragic accident and the parents simulated an abduction after failing to care for their children,” Tavares de Almeida, former chief inspector at Portimao police station during the initial months of the investigation, told the court in Lisbon. “These were the conclusions of a police report signed by me on September 10 2007,” he added. 

The allegations against Kate and Gerry McCann, both 41, were presented in court on the first day of a hearing to challenge the publication of a book written by Algarve detective Dr.Goncalo Amaral. 

Lawyers for Dr.Amaral, who co-ordinated the TEAM that made the McCanns arguidos – suspects – in their daughter’s disappearance, called witnesses to support the claims outlined in his book. The McCanns arguido status was lifted after ten months in July 2008 when the Attorney General ruled there was no evidence against them. 

We must remind ourselves here ABSENCE of EVIDENCE is not EVIDENCE of ABSENCE. Gerry himself has told us many times ‘ There is no evidence’ There is no proof’ ‘There is nothing to show Madeleine has come to any serious harm’ The Attorney General has agreed, to agree with Gerry. 

However, and there is ALWAYS an however The McCanns came face to face with Dr.Amaral for the first time since they were officially made argiuidos in September 2007, four months after their daughter vanished, nine days before her fourth birthday. 

Dr. Amaral,aged 50, helped co-ordinate the initial investigation into Madeleine’s disappearance from a holiday apartment in Praia da Luz on May 3 2007 while her parents dined with friends at a tapas bar nearby. He was removed from the case, which remains unsolved. 

His book, entitled “The Truth of The Lie”, published in July 2008 claims that Madeleine died in the apartment and questions her parents’ account of events that evening. It became a bestseller in Portugal selling more than 200,000 copies and went on to be published in six languages and made into a documentary film. 

The documentary is clear and precise, Dr.Amaral proves how an abduction described the way the Mccanns tell their version would have been impossible. 

No wonder Gerry McCann made his own documentary showing his own VERSION of events. The actress who played Kate Mccanns part was ALSO so unbelievable, that even Gerry McCann left her out of his ‘PLAY’. 

After a year long campaign the McCanns succeeded in getting a temporary injunction banning further sales and it was withdrawn from shelves last September. 

The couple are suing for libel because they believe that the book is damaging the search for their daughter by asserting that she is already dead. (They do not mention their concern for the Gaspar statement, but concerned they must surely be) They are expected to ask a judge for around £1million in damages which they will use to pay for their own continuing hunt for their daughter, who they believe was kidnapped and could still be alive and being held somewhere. 

The McCanns are now of course directors of the FUND and a link to this FUND by PAYPAL still remains at Leicestershire Police station. The same Police station that held back the Gaspar statement from the investigation. 

We must remember also, Dave Edgar said Madeleine is in PDL living in a HELLISH Lair and still Gerry says ‘There IS no evidence she has come to any harm’ In fact Gerry has made no attempt himself to go in search of this HELLISH lair where his TOP MAN claims she is being held. Strange you would think NOTHING would keep him away. 

Mr de Almeida told the court: “We have always spoken of a tragic accidental death – not homicide. The McCanns did not kill her but they concealed the body,” Mr de Almeida, was also removed from the the case in September 2007, said the decision to designate the McCanns 'arguidos' was made by police after sniffer dogs brought to Portugal from England had carried out their searches. 

Giving evidence, Mr de Almeida said that the dogs had identified blood and the scent of a human corpse inside the McCanns’ holiday flat. The animals also reacted to traces on a piece of cloth in a villa rented by the McCanns after they left the apartment and in the boot of a rental car hired by the family several weeks after Madeleine disappeared. 

Many reasons have been given as to this odour in the back of the car, the twins dirty nappies , rotting meat and spilt fish oil. (Not a very good example coming from two NHS doctos, no wonder the hospitals are rife with SuperBugs......) .. 

Mr de Almeida also complained that Portuguese police efforts to investigate the McCanns had been frustrated by their British counterparts. “We were told that the UK would not accept any investigation of the McCanns – there was a lack of cooperation,” he said. 

But later he said that the theory that the parents had covered up Madeleine’s death as outlined in Amaral’s book was one reached by British police on the ground in Portugal too. “THIS WAS NOT SOMETHING INVENTED BY AMARAL,” he insisted. “It was a conclusion reached by the team of Portuguese investigators as well as BRITISH POLICE.” 

A third witness said the turning point of the investigation came following a tearful call from Mrs McCann who, after a dream, told police where to search for her daughter’s body. 

Police Inspector Ricardo Paiva, who acted as a liason between the McCanns and Portuguese police in the days following their daughter’s disappearance told the court he had received the phone call in late July 2007. “Kate called me, she was alone as Gerry was away and she was crying,” he said. “She said she had dreamt that Madeleine was on a hill and that we should search for her there. " (According to Gerry , Police Inspector Ricardo Paiva, is a liar...Gerry can see into Kates head and no, she never had such a dream, to Gerry everyone is a liar who WILL NOT believe his version.) “She gave the impression that she thought she was dead – it was a turning point for us.” 

The senior detective said the land was searched but nothing was found. “That is when we decided to send the specialist dogs in. BRITISH POLICE informed us about how they could detect the scent of death.” 

He admitted that the police had been suspicious of the McCanns from the start of the investigation. “They disobeyed our request to keep quiet about the details of their daughter’s disappearance while we conducted our investigation. Instead they turned it into a media circus and that gave rise to some suspicions.”  

He said that the McCanns should have faced prosecution for leaving their children alone. “They should have been pursued for neglect. People have been arrested for far less – even in the UK.”  



From everything that was gathered, the facts point in the direction that the death of Madeleine McCann occurred, on the night of May 3rd of 2007, inside the apartment 5A, of the Ocean Club resort, occupied by the couple McCann and by their three children; 

There is a coincidence between the marking of cadaver odour and blood, according to the Laboratory Report (partial) annexed to the 'Autos'. Such markings, occurred behind the sofa of the living room (cadaver and blood odour/DNA), which proves that indubitably such piece of furniture was pushed back by someone, after the death of Madeleine McCann occurred. 

Because of the weak (small) vestiges recovered at such place, it is to admit as a strong hypothesis that the same was subjected to a wash, at the time the death occurred. In the same way, the soft toy used by the dead child, found at the head of the bed where she usually slept (see photos about the initial forensics) reveals that someone put it there in a moment posterior to the death, once the bed doesn't have cadaver odour. 

This is, there occurred an intentional modification in order to simulate a 'picture' that doesn't correspond with the reality; It must be added that the cadaver odour signalled a strong odour in the bedroom where the McCann slept, which can indicate the moving of the corpse from the actual death scene (living room) to the non visible part of the bedroom; 

Furthermore a strong reaction for cadaver odour was made on Kate's clothes, which can indicate that she was in touch with the cadaver; 

There was also a strong reaction of cadaver odour in the car used by the McCann (since May 27th 2007), which in conjugation with the blood dog and the forensics present in the 'Autos', that indicate the presence of Madeleine McCann's DNA in the booth of the car, are in order not to exclude a strong hypothesis that this car may have been used to transport the cadaver, 24 days after the death; 

It can't also be neglected the indication of the cadaver and blood dog, on the car key, having the laboratory confirmed the existence of Gerald McCann's DNA. This last signalling was obtained by the dogs after the key was put far away from the car and in a place not visible. 

From everything that was exposed from the AUTOS, we conclude that: 

A) The minor Madeleine McCann died in the apartment 5A of the Ocean Club resort, on the night of May 3rd of 2007; 

B) It was performed a simulation of kidnapping; 

C) In order to avoid the death [alarm] of the minor before 22H00, it was created a situation of the children's surveillance by the McCann while the children slept; 

D) Kate McCann and Gerald McCann are involved in the occultation of the cadaver of their child Madeleine McCann; 

E) At this moment, there seems that there aren't strong indicia that the death of the minor didn't happen due to a tragic accident; 

F) From what was obtained until now, everything points out that the McCann, as self-defence, didn't want to deliver immediately and voluntarily the cadaver, existing a strong possibility that the same was transported from the initial place of deposition. This situation is susceptible to raise questions about the circumstances under which the death of the minor occurred. So we suggest that the 'Autos' be sent to the Sr. Procurador Geral da R'ublica [General Attorney], in order to: 

G) New interrogation of the Arguidos Kate and Gerry McCann; 

H) Evaluation of the measure of restraint to be applied in this case; On the course of the house search to the residence of the McCann, a manuscript was found, a sort of diary, already photocopied, possibly authored by Kate McCann, and admitting that the same may contain elements that may help to reach the material truth of the facts, 


I) The photocopies of such document to be presented to the M.Mo Judge regarding its apprehension, if legal, translation and eventual recovery of elements to bring into the 'Autos' for future investigation.

Strange things happen when this ALLEGED witness statement appears. Here in Spain, a newspaper for ex-pats was Carter Rucked because it dared to print information from the released PJ files. 

A simple phone call and I was told it was out of their hands they had been gagged and had to remove the offending article. The article in question was part of the ALLEGED events that were witnessed by Dr.Katherine Gaspar. 

This is a little like closing the barn door when the horse has bolted. The newspapers had already been delivered and the information was out there, nevertheless it was removed from online. A petition also having reached 5,000 signatures, was quickly closed when someone gave their reason for the case being re-opened, they mentioned the Gaspar statement. 

Several books have now been written about the McCann affair and there is suggestion of the parents involvement in many, if not all, from the authors. The one subject the books do not touch on however, is the Gaspar statement, only Dr.Amaral mentions it in his book as part of the investigation. 

This witness statement has been kept back at all costs from the British public by the McCanns, through their lawyers. 

The cadaver dogs and their findings do not seem to phase the Mccanns , they are unreliable says Gerry AND even though the dogs only picked up on ALL things McCann, no one dare question Gerry on this observation, in fact there does not seem to be one British reporter observant enough to even notice.

Dr.Amaral told his side of the story in his book ‘The Truth of The Lie’ an excellent title, as the whole affair is based on a lie. Dr.Amaral and HIS observations from years of experience led him to suspect the McCanns, BUT not just him , his TEAM... the Mccanns have singled him out as their target but it was an INVESTIGATION that brought them to this conclusion. 

The McCanns have NOT been cleared as they like to tell us, their arguido status has been lifted, something quite different. The McCanns have also made it clear, they are NOT to be questioned. There is ONLY one version of events and that is theirs. 

So, to the public, ALL information is out there and the McCanns are innocent of any involvement in the disappearance of their daughter. Everything is known? Well, not quite , the statement from Dr.Katherine Gaspar has been kept from the British public. 

The allegation Katherine makes, is a serious one and I wonder why Gerry and David Payne have not taken action against her if untrue.. 

This information is being kept hidden away, like a dirty secret and it does, when reading ,appear perverse and very,very sordid. 

If British reporters had done, what they are paid to do,’ expose the truth,’ this statement would and should have been in the press. I think damage control would have been impossible, even for Clarence would have been a ticking time bomb, what would the public reaction have been or would be even today on reading this? shock and horror and yes thoughts of the possibility Madeleine may have been an abused child , or worse. Leicestershire Constabulary held this information back from the Portuguese Investigation for SIX months. WHY? Reasons known only unto themselves. 

Utterly remarkable that two NHS Doctors have managed to make an entire Police force look either very stupid, or very corrupt. As for the Gaspar statement, time has gone by and the longer time passes the more important this statement appears OR does it? it may of course mean nothing at all, a scorned woman, jealous because the McCanns found the Paynes more fun. 

Even if this should be the case, it was not for Leicester Police to decide on what information should be forwarded and what should be held back. . It was for PJ to decide and investigate, the colonial days are over but someone forgot to tell the McCanns. 

Katherines husband did not seem concerned, nor does he mention his wife asking him to watch the children at bath time if David Payne was bathing them. Although Katherines husband does agree, the suggestions made by David Payne , were in poor taste. If Katherine was so concerned, why did she not leave with her children?, ,instead she continued to allow David to bathe them even with these thoughts running through her head, thoughts of paedophilia. 

This whole affair is very strange and there is something not quite right with the Gaspar statement. AND yet it must be important because the Mccanns make sure their lawyers sue anyone who dares mention it. 

I cannot help but wonder if Dr.Amaral had not placed this statement in his book, would the McCanns be so intent on destroying him?

I make this statement in relation to the MCCANN family who are currently in Portugal. 

The MCCANN family is composed of Gerry MCCANN, his wife, Kate MCCANN and their three children, Madeleine, 4 years old, and Sean and Amelie, who are twins, aged two. 

As has been widely covered by the news, Madeleine is not with her family presently, and has been missing for the last two weeks. 

I will begin by explaining that I am married to Savio Gaspar and that we have two daughters, E., who is almost 3 and I. who is now one year old. I have been married to Savio for 11 years. 

I am a General Practitioner like my husband. I met my husband when we were (page 1) working together in Exeter, about 14 years ago. 

To explain the way in which we met the MCCANN family, I would like to state that my husband knows Kate, as they both attended Dundee University between 1987 and 1992. 

At that time, Kate?s name was Kate HEALY. I met Kate and Gerry on the occasion of their wedding, around 1998, in Liverpool. Both Savio and I went to the wedding because as Savio was an old friend of Kate?s, we were both invited to the event. 

As far as I know, Savio did not know Gerry before the abovementioned wedding. From that time onwards, we met as friends about three times a year and we would spent weekends away together. 

I would say that we became intimate friends of Gerry and Kate. I remember that in 2002 or 2003, Savio and I spent a weekend with Gerry and Kate in Devon. 

We would stay in contact with each other by telephone. In 2002/2003 Savio and I were living in Birmingham and the MCCANNS in Leicester. 

In September of 2005, Savio, I and E., who at the time was about 1 and a half years old, went to spend our holidays abroad, in Majorca. 

We went (page 2) on holiday with Kate, Gerry, and Madeleine, who would have been around 2 and a half years old and with the twins, Sean and Amelie, who were just months old. 

I remember that I was pregnant with I. During those holidays there were also friends of Gerry and Kate with us. 

There was a couple, whose names were Dave and Fiona, and whose surname was PAYNE, I believe. I think that they were married and had one daughter aged about 1, named L. I remember that during those holidays that Fiona was pregnant. 

There was another couple, whose names were Tara and Stuart, but whose surname I cannot remember who were also on holiday with us. They had two boys, aged 1 and 3, whose names I do not remember. 

I did not know these two families before we went on holidays together. 

From memory, I think that it was Dave who organised these holidays and we all stayed together in a big house when we were in Majorca. 

We spend a week on holidays, however, the MCCANN family and the PAYNE family stayed for two weeks. 

I think that Tara and Stuart, and their two children, also stayed for just one week. 

Two or three days had gone by, we were all staying in Majorca where, in general terms, we had fun (Page 3) with our children. 

Possibly, around the fourth or perhaps the fifth day abroad, I remember an incident that stayed recorded in my head. I say this in this way, because I have thought numerous times about the incident that I am about to describe since that date. 

One night, when we were on holiday, the adults, in other words, the couples that I mentioned were on a patio outside the house where we were staying. We had been eating and drinking. I was sitting between Dave and Gerry whom I believe were both talking about Madeleine. 

I don?t remember the conversation in its entirety, but it seemed they were discussing a possible scenario. I remember Dave telling Gerry something like ?she?, referring to Madeleine, ?would do this?. When he mentioned ?this?, Dave was sucking on one of his fingers, pushing it in and out of his mouth, whilst with the other hand he circled his nipple, with a circulating movement over his clothes. 

This was done in a provocative manner there being an explicit insinuation in relation to what he was saying and doing. I remember that I was shocked at this, and looked at Gerry, and also at Dave, to see their reactions. I looked around (page 4) to see ?did anyone else hear this, or was it just me?. 

There was a nervous silence noted in the conversations of all the others and immediately afterwards everyone began talking again. 

I never spoke to anyone about this, but I always felt that it was something very strange and that it wasn?t something that should be done or said. 

Apart from this, I remember that Dave did the same thing once again. When I refer to this, I want to mention again that it was during a conversation, in which he was talking about an imaginary situation, though I could not say precisely what it was about. 

I believe that he was talking about his own daughter, L., though I?m not certain. He slid one of his fingers in and out of his mouth, while the other hand drew a circle around his nipple in a provocative and sexual manner. I believe that he was referring to the way that L., would behave or would do it.  I believe that he did this later on, during the holidays, but I cannot be sure. 

The only time, besides this one, that I was with Dave and Fiona was several weeks after the holidays, when Savio and I met up with Gerry, Kate, Dave and Fiona at a restaurant in Leicester. 

I am absolutely certain that he said what he said and that he made the gestures I referred to, but that could have occurred in the restaurant in Leicester, even though (page five) I believe that it was later on, in Majorca. 

When I heard Dave saying and doing this a second time, I took it more seriously. I remember thinking whether he looked at the girls in a different way from me or from the others. 

I imagined that maybe he had visited Internet sites related to small children. In short, I thought that he might be interested in child pornography on the internet. 

During our holidays, I was more attentive at the bath times after hearing Dave saying that. 

During our holidays in Majorca, it was the fathers who took care of the children baths. I had the tendency to walk close to the bathroom, if it was Dave bathing the children. 

I remember telling Savio to took care to be there, in case it was Dave helping to bathe the children and, in particular, my daughter E. I was very clear about this, as having heard him say that had disturbed me, and I did not trust him to give bath to E. alone. 

When I heard Dave say that a second time, it reinforced what I already thought in relation to his thoughts about girls. 

During our stay in Majorca, Dave and his wife, Fiona, accompanied by their daughter L., took Madeleine (page 6) with them to spend the day, in order to give Kate and Gerry a bit of rest and time to be with the twins. 

When I say this, it is not that I was worried about Madeleine?s safety, since she was also with Fiona and L., and also with Dave, as far as I know. 

As I have already mentioned, I was only with Dave and Fiona on one occasion, after Majorca, and I have not spoken to them since then. 

In the last two years, we have met, as a family, with the MCCANN, every now and then. This mainly happens on the children?s birthdays, a time when we meet up. The first time I heard of the terrible news about Madeleine?s disappearance through the radio, my thoughts went immediately to Dave. 

I asked Savio if Dave was also on holidays with the MCCANN in Portugal but he did not know. I watched the TV thoroughly, and seeing the news coverage, I noticed that Dave was there, because I saw him, in the background, on the television images during the first days after Madeleine?s disappearance. 

Based upon that, I believed that he was on holidays with the MCCANN in Portugal. 

Today, Wednesday, 16th of May of 2007, at 17:40, I gave DC Brewer an A4 page containing 2 photographic images. 

I am going to refer to these images as (Ref KZG/1) (element of proof) that may (page seven) be presented as means of proof, if necessary. These photographs were taken during the holidays in Majorca. In the photographs, Dave is wearing a white T-shirt and the woman in the photograph corresponds to his wife Fiona. 

The man who is holding the glass of wine in the photograph is Stuart. These photographs were taken while we were in Majorca.

As requested, appended are the statements of Arul and Katherina Gaspar. 

I read with curiosity the written statements given by David Payne but was not able to extricate any other information besides what is already known. 

He declares that he saw Madeleine, for the last time, at 17H00 on 3/5/07 in the McCann apartment. 

Also present there were Kate and Gerry. 

He did not indicate the motive for being there or what he was doing. 

He also cannot indicate how long he stayed. 

When asked with whom he was on the afternoon of May 3rd, he declares that this information was already offered to the police and cannot remember if anyone else was there. 

He does not remember what he was wearing that afternoon. 

 He took part in the searches, having carried out most of them alone. He was at times accompanied by Matthew Oldfield. 

He did not partake in the searches realized on the 4th of May, because, on this day, he spent to majority of time in the police headquarters.

For many questions, he does not give a complete response, affirming simply that he has already given this information to the Portuguese police in his declarations. 

I examined once again the declarations of Fiona Payne. 

In her depositions, she states that she went to the McCann apartment, around 19H00, on the 3rd of May, together with Kate. 

She states afterwards that, 10 minutes later, the husband arrived; it is not clear which husband she refers to.

Her responses to the questions are vague. She continued to respond to questions with ?they conform with my earlier deposition? or some similar statement. 

TEXTUSA as you know is now on holiday and this information will be here for you to ponder and digest. 

If you wish, please leave a comment but they will not be published until Textusas return. 

Happy Holidays.

Last Call - All ABOARD (...or NOT) !!!

I’ve been very critical with the Portuguese Police performance on the night Maddie died.

Although I do maintain some criticism, I now recognize that I wouldn’t have done much better in same circumstances.

Everyone by now has understood that what happened on the night of May 3rd, 2007, in PdL, was very similar to the depicted in the “Murder On the Orient Express” movie, including a very coincidental “… the train is unusually crowded for the time of year”.

There are various differences.

In PdL, Ratchet wasn't but a little 4 year old girl called Madeleine, for one, and there was a body evidently murdered in the train, while in the apartment the body is to this day missing, and probably no longer exists.

Another important difference is that on the train, all the planning took place BEFORE the murder, while in PdL I believe that the planning, not of a murder but of a cover-up, took place AFTER, what I also believe to have been, the manslaughter.

Also, I’m sure that all the Tapas 9 didn’t stab Maddie as each of the Orient Express’ 12 suspects stabbed Ratchett once, “so that no one could know who delivered the fatal blow”, but I’m in belief that all of the Tapas 9 know exactly who delivered that particular "blow" to Maddie.

So, if, as police, I was to be confronted by a couple, backed by OTHER seven adults, that their daughter had been abducted by aliens, my first natural reaction would be to contact the local air traffic authorities, even if all physical evidence pointed otherwise.

The likelihood of being before NINE adults lying about the death of one of their own children is too staggeringly adverse.

 If it were just the claim of the couple, then yes, very suspicious… but it’s humanly impossible to grasp immediately that NINE people are in on a plot to cover up the very recent death of a girl that was the daughter to two of them.

It would be natural to assume that all and any absurd fact would later have an explanation, and that it could wait as, very appropriately so, the absolute priority would be to find the toddler as quickly as possible. After all, she could be just lost down the street…

But this post is NOT about what happened that night, but it’s about all those unfortunate enough to have “been on the train” that night.

When a train crashes into a station, the people that happen to be either on the train or on the station, are bound to get seriously hurt.

Their only guilt was to decide to be on that that particular train or on that particular station at that particular time, but irrelevant of lack of guilt, they will get hurt, seriously hurt. Maybe they shouldn’t have been in any of the two places or it’s completely irrelevant their presence there or elsewhere, the fact is that no one could anticipate the accident, otherwise, logic dictates, they would be somewhere else.

Unjust, unfair, but that is the way it is.

 The “train” on May 3rd, was the Ocean Club, on board, many passengers, not only the Tapas 9. The “station” is one huge place. It encompasses PdL, some parts of Portugal, and goes all the way to so many a corridor, house and family in the UK.

This post is directed to all those that were unfortunate to be, one way or another, at either on that train or on that station. So let me now talk directly to all those good, honest and decent people, who know exactly that I’m referring to them.

I know you hate me, and you have reasons to hate me. I would hate me if I were you, no question about that.

I, on the other hand, don’t hate you, or even “hate” you, but understand that the fact that I just won’t go away is reason justified for you to hate me. Understand and accept that.

But although I understand your hatred fully, I won’t apologise for anything for there’s nothing for me to apologise for.

As I said, nothing moves me against you and I maintain fully the adjectives I used to describe you all: good, honest and decent.

Although it doesn’t seem to be so, I’ve thus far tried to protect you, for I see you as mere collateral victims in all this. I know that by now you’re wishing that you weren’t where and when you were. Or that you didn’t have family or friends that were there and then.

Unfortunately, nobody, nor you, nor I, can change that. And whether you were in the Ocean Club, PdL, somewhere else in Portugal or in the UK you got hit. Hard. No matter how much you pretended, and pretend, you weren’t, you were. And I keep reminding you of that, and that’s got to hurt, I know.

But going about protecting the “train driver” from his accountability was simply the wrong thing to do. Yes, things did get a little out of hand, and yes, you can even say they fooled you at first. I know that they, to some of you, namely those that had little to lose, appealed to your National values.

As if it wasn’t the “natives’” business to poke their dirty little noses in yours, as is known, in the Brit Empire, what happens there stays there.

The problem is that it didn’t happen anywhere near an existing Empire. To all those that had much to lose, well, there was no argumentation needed, right? You must understand that the McCanns, under the excuse that they were protecting you, have USED YOU as a wall to protect themselves.

And you must understand that for us to get to the McCanns, we must go past that same wall. To get to them we must go through you. The only way around this, is YOU making that unnecessary.

In the blog I’ve exhausted the "Smith Sighting" theme. I may squeeze out of it one or two more posts, but that’s it. Then I may write about some Black Hats wandering about, many of which I do believe to be you, and may even find one or other minor theme to write about, but we must move on.

And once we do, we do.

You’ve seen our methodology on the “Smith Sighting”, and if I wasn’t afraid of infringing some copyright, I would dare call it as the “leaving no stone unturned” technique. But I believe somebody else has already used, or better said, misused the expression, so I won't use it. Just have to find myself another one.

The important thing is that we in this blog, are not as satisfied as many, in playing around with the already known facts and putting them together over and over again.

Like having a clearly limited amount of Lego pieces, and be satisfied to mount them in many different ways. Always apparently different, yet just the same pieces.

We in this blog, seek new pieces. To the displeasure of many.

And when there’s a will, there’s a way. And yes, we’ve found some very, very interesting stuff. No, we do not have privileged information, secret sources or leaked documents. It’s all in the information available to all. All already published or seen. Which, in my view, is not exactly a good thing for you, as it is there for all to see, once there’s a finger to point it out to them.

It has then come the time for you to do some damage control, if you wish to do so. We still believe that it’s possible to contain all this to all those DIRECTLY involved in the demise and body disposal of the British citizen, Madeleine Beth McCann.

We know that some of these people acted in good faith, but, unfortunately for them, accountability is accountability.

You all good, decent and honest people can go and find yourself another online/offline “PDL Church” somewhere and hold one of your meetings and convince those that are accountable that this whole farse doesn't make sense anymore, if it ever did, and that it’s time that they owned up and faced the music, and leave the rest of you, finally, out of it.

This is not a threat, just an alert. As I said, nothing moves me against you, so, in conscience, I had to warn you, and that's what I'm doing.

Tomorrow I’m leaving for holidays. Ironside has the blog’s front door keys, but has already warned me NOT to hand over the key to the mailbox.

Which, by the way, seems to be having some problems, according to what I’ve been told. Remember only when you receive the message that the comment has been submitted, will it mean that it has been sent. Don’t worry about duplication, that will be my problem.

Your comments will then continue to be received, but will only be published upon my return. With the exception of those “DO NOT PUBLISH”. Those are to remain private, and will never be published, so that all the good, honest and decent people can continue to use it, if they wish to do so.

Take care, the Sun is calling and arthritis is pushing. No, I won’t “go away”.
