The McCann Case

This is an attempt to unravel the facts & the many varied & changing claims surrounding the death, abduction or dissapearance of Madeleine McCann aged 3, whilst on holiday with her parents and younger siblings in Portugal, on the night of 07-May-2007, to try to establish the truth.

NSPCC –

Guidelines on when it is acceptable to Leave children at home alone State unequivocally

  1. Babies, toddlers and very young children should never be left alone
  2. Parents and carers can be prosecuted for neglect if it is judged that they placed a child at risk by leaving them at home alone

Do be minded that the 3 McCann babies, and yes I do mean babies as the eldest was Madeleine and she was not yet four and in the eyes of the law she was a baby/toddler left in charge of two much younger babies, they were not even left at home – they were left in a strange appartment in a foreign country, where she could not even speak the language!

What the law says

Strange as it may seem, there’s no set age for leaving children home alone. The law simply says that you shouldn’t leave a child alone if they’ll be at risk.

There’s such a wide variation in the rate that children mature that it would be almost impossible to come up with a “one size fits all” law. Instead, the choice is left to parents. They know their children best and can use their own judgement.

Girl baking cake

That’s not to say that there are no laws on leaving children home alone. Under the Children and Young Persons (England and Wales) Act 1933, the Children and Young Persons (Scotland) Act 1937 and the Children and Young Persons (Northern Ireland) Act 1968, parents and carers can be prosecuted for neglect. This means that they can be fined or sent to prison if they are judged to have placed a child at risk of harm by leaving them at home alone, regardless of where in the UK the child lives.

There might not be a specific legal age to leave children alone but it’s safe to say babies, toddlers and young children should never be left alone, even if it’s just while you pop down the road. Even if they’re sleeping peacefully when you leave they could well wake up and get very upset when you’re not there to look after them. They would not be able to protect themselves in an emergency and may even try to leave the property to find you.

NSPCC advice on leaving a child at home

  1. Babies, toddlers and very young children should never be left alone
  2. Children under the age of 12 are rarely mature enough to cope in an emergency and should not be left at home alone for a long period of time
  3. Children under the age of 16 should not be left alone overnight
  4. Parents and carers can be prosecuted for neglect if it is judged that they placed a child at risk by leaving them at home alone
  5. A child should never be left at home alone if they do not feel comfortable with this, regardless of their age
  6. If a child has additional needs, these should be considered when leaving them at home alone or with an older sibling
  7. When leaving a younger child with an older sibling think about what may happen if they were to have a falling out – would they both be safe?

Things to consider before leaving a child home alone

No one knows your child quite as well as you do – so use your knowledge of what they’re really like to answer these questions. This won’t give you a definite answer about whether the time is right to leave your child alone at home, but it’ll certainly give you plenty to think about.

  1. Does your child seem to be responsible and mature for their age and always do what you tell him or her?
  2. Would they be able to fix themselves something to eat and drink and would you be happy with them using the cooker or microwave?
  3. Can you imagine how they’d cope in an emergency like a power cut or a flooded bathroom?
  4. Would they know what to do if the phone rang or someone came to the door?
  5. Would they know how to contact you or another family member or friend if they needed to? Do they have these contact numbers to hand?
  6. How would they feel about being left alone – pleased to be given the responsibility or scared by the thought of it?

But remember, if you or your child are even the teeniest bit unsure about leaving them at home on their own, it’s always best to be on the safe side and arrange some other kind of care for them such as a babysitter or childminder.

There is no doubt or argument which exhonourates Drs. Kate & Gerry McCann for having left their 3 babies alone and unattended in a rented flat in a foreign country where they didn’t even speak the language. Do be minded they were not left alone whilst the parents popped out, which would have put the babies at risk, but whilst the two Doctors left their babies to go out carousing with chums in a tavera some 100 yards away out of sight and sound of the babies.

However often they may claim to have returned to check them merely shoqws they knew clearly they were at risk and the periods between visits were the very cause of the outcome that night when Madeleine allegedly went missing.

Had these 2 Doctors acted responsibly and ensured the 3 babies were not abandoned, either by remaining with them, taking them with them or by ensuring they had an approved baby sitter Madeleine would still be in their care as a teenager now!

Hi,

.

What REALLY happened the night Madeleine McCann disappeared as nanny breaks her 10-year silence

The former child minder said she is still haunted by the image of dad Gerry desperately trying to find their missing daughter while she tried to comfort weeping mum Kate

A nanny who looked after Madeleine McCann has told how the youngster’s parents were plunged into despair and panic when the ­horrifying truth she had vanished sank in.

The former child minder said she is still haunted by the image of dad Gerry desperately trying to find their missing daughter while she tried to comfort weeping mum Kate who cried: “They’ve taken her.”

Breaking her silence after 10 years, the witness also claimed the resort from which Madeleine vanished was considered so unsafe nannies were handed rape alarms and told to not go out alone.

And she slammed the Portuguese police’s handling of the disappearance, insisting their ­blundering scuppered any chances of finding who had snatched three-year-old Madeleine.

Speaking of that dreadful night in May 2007, the ex-nanny –who looked after the girl several times – said: “A parent came to me and said there was something going on, and said someone’s looking for a child, I didn’t instantly think it was Maddie.

“A couple of minutes later I walked into Kate crying, friends comforting her, Gerry looking under cars, and it just blew up.

“I don’t even think she saw me. I just stood next to her and tried to comfort her.

“She was pacing up and down. The worst possible thing had just happened to her.

“I think I said something like, ‘She’ll be found, these things happen all the time.’

“She was crying, but almost in a catatonic state, and Gerry was very distressed. That’s the one thing I really remember from him, looking under the cars. I can’t forget that.

“We were told to start looking in bins in case her body was in there. It was at that point we realised this was serious.”

Along with other staff, the ex-carer, who worked for travel firm Mark Warner at the the Ocean Club resort, sifted by hand in the dark through industrial-sized bins and piping leading into the sea in their hunt for Madeleine.

They also walked Praia da Luz’s small, winding streets searching for the missing girl until they were told, against their wills at 5am, that it was time for bed.

But the woman, who we are not naming, said she is still furious with local police , who she claimed took 90 minutes to arrive on the scene.

And she told how people were in and out of the apartment where Madeleine vanished from – contaminating a ­potential crime scene.

The former nanny added: “I know I didn’t step into that apartment but pretty much everybody else did. So, evidence gone, nothing. There was nobody there to say, ‘We need to lock this off now.’

“The police didn’t get there for ages, maybe an hour and a half, so we were looking for her.

“And at the end of the day, no matter how much you’ve been trained with ­children, we were children, mainly ­teenagers, we’re not police.

“That’s why police were trying to get everyone’s timelines, because they weren’t there.”

She also told how she was interviewed by officers in the wake of Madeleine’s disappearance and later detectives from ­the Met’s Operation Grange handed her two pages of statements they had retrieved from their Algarve compratiots.

Her original statement was four to five pages long, but the one the Portuguese had been working from was only two pages long – missing a number of details from her interview.

The woman claimed “whole chunks of information were missed out”.

She added: “I think a lot of things should’ve happened differently. ­Unfortunately the effects were catastrophic.”

And the carer told how she was astonished Kate and Gerry were ever deemed suspects in their own child’s ­disappearance.

She is still constantly quizzed by people about the case who ask if “the parents did it”.

She said: “I tell them no, there’s no way at all. A, timings and B, where it was, their r­eactions, the whole thing. Not a chance.”

The woman also told how Madeleine was a favourite among the child minders. Her allocated nanny was Catriona Baker, but others also got the chance to look after her.

The carer added: “I remember her character and ­temperament. She was slightly shy, very sweet. Not loud or precocious.

 
The nanny said that Madeleine was a helpful, polite child (Photo: PA)

“We obviously give the same care to all the children, but she was a real cutie and a real sweetheart. If you asked her, ‘Can you just pass me that?’ She’d be like, ‘Sure.’

“She was easy for us, and you were happy to sit and help out this pretty little girl who’s really nice.”

While the Ocean Club was clearly popular with British holidaymakers like the McCanns, from Rothley, Leics, the former child minder claimed it was considered an unsafe place for those who worked there.

After she arrived she was stunned when a fellow nanny passed on a message from hotel staff to never venture off the site alone.

She added: “I just couldn’t get over how different it was to other Mark Warner resorts.

“We were told, ‘Here’s a rape whistle, don’t go anywhere by yourself, ever.’ There’d been a girl attacked the year or so before in Praia da Luz. It didn’t sound like a family resort to me.

“I just got the feeling the locals didn’t want us there.”

It emerged in 2014 that 11 years earlier a 10-year-old British girl had been sexually assaulted “in the heart” of Praia da Luz.

The victim came forward three years ago after a Scotland Yard appeal revealed a string of potentially linked sex assaults on young UK girls across the Algarve between 2004 and 2006.

Mark Warner, which operates in resorts all over the world, quit Praia da Luz in 2015.

Madeleine vanished as her parents ate with friends at a tapas bar just 40 yards from where she slept next to twin siblings, Amelie and Sean.

But the former nanny, who couldn’t face child minding again after the Algarve horror, said dining while kids were in the apartments was “really normal” in such resorts.

And she insisted there was no evidence Kate and Gerry would ever neglect their kids.

She said: “I remember thinking, even before I knew them, how they were the picture perfect family.”

 
The tapas bar was not far from the family’s apartment (Photo: The People)

Asked if she thinks Madeleine is still alive, the woman said: “Think possibly is the wrong word, but hope. I hope she is still alive.

“It’s probably very naive, but the best case scenario of a very horrible situation, is that she was procured and taken for a rich person who didn’t have children.

“I can’t go anywhere else in my head. I can read it about other people and know how horrible that seedy world is where children are sold. But my brain won’t go there with her. I just switch off.

“But I think the only person who knows exactly what happened is Madeleine. Can I believe it’s 10 years on? Yes and no.

Crimewatch – Madeleine McCann Reconstruction

 
 

No because 10 years seems like a really long time, she’d be nearly 14.

“And yes, because sometimes, when I talk about it, it feels like I’m right back there again.

“I wonder if she’s alive. Does she even remember? Does she remember her parents?

“I’m probably less harrowed by it now, but that’s just because, although it’s awful, it’s become accepted.

“‘It’s Madeleine, she’s gone missing but it would just be the best day ever if I could be told that she’s been found.”

Operation Grange, which was last month given £85,000 of Home Office funding to extend its probe until September, still speaks to witnesses.

Hi,

Kate and Gerry McCann vow to fight any prosecution for abandoning their children after Katie Hopkins demanded ‘justice’

The parents of Maddie McCann have hit back at the outspoken reality star

The McCanns have vowed to fight “tooth and nail” if prosecuted for abandoning their children after a shocking video called for them to punished ten years after Maddie was snatched.

As outspoken radio host Katie Hopkins branded it an “injustice” that Kate and Gerry escaped punishment for leaving three children alone during a family holiday, their friend said: “They were well aware they could have been charged with child neglect and naturally very concerned. But in legal terms they were doing everything well within the bounds of respectable parenting.”

The source insists: “Any legal action against them would have failed. A court would have to show Kate and Gerry had wilfully neglected their daughter and her siblings, and they did not. They would have robustly defended any charges, if brought.”

The couple could have faced jail under Portuguese law if they had ever faced a charge of abandonment and been convicted.

Hopkins’ harsh criticism of Maddie’s parents Kate and Gerry has refuelled the “were they right or wrong” row for leaving a trio of kids, all under the aged of four, asleep in a holiday apartment in Portugal while they were dining nearby with pals.

The mum-of-three Katie, in a global YouTube interview with glamour model Jodie Marsh, claims they should never have escaped justice and also claimed Kate was insensitive for ever washing her snatched daughter’s favourite cuddly toy, Cuddle Cat.

Three-year-old Maddie vanished from the un-locked doored flat in The Algarve’s Praia da Luz in May 2007. Her parents chose not to pay for a baby sitting service while they ate and drank in a tapas bar with chums, dubbed the Tapas Seven.

Ex GP Kate, 49, and heart doctor Gerry, 48, of Rothley, Leics, were never prosecuted for abandoning their kids out of “compassion”, a former Portuguese law chief revealed last year.

Former minister of internal affairs Rui Pereira slammed the decision not to charge the McCann’s with “the crime of abandonment.” He revealed in a TV interview how top officials, out of “compassion” for the parents, ruled out charges citing Brits’ “peculiar cultural customs, thinking it is natural for them to leave children alone.”

 
Kate and Gerry still believe Maddie, who would now be 13, is still alive (Photo: PA)

Hopkins had previously stated on national LBC Radio: “Maddie was lost because she was left to be found.” Marsh, in a Twitter rant, added that her parents should be searching “on their hands and knees digging up the bare earth rather than be side-tracked and busying themselves suing people.”

Maddie’s parents are bracing themselves for the painful milestone 10th anniversary of her disappearance in less than seven weeks. They cling onto a glimmer of hope that their daughter, who would now be aged 13, could still be alive.

McCann spokesman Clarence Mitchell today declined to discuss the latest rant, having previously said: “Kate and Gerry will not be fuelling any of this pure speculation with any comment whatsoever.”

I guess the McCann’s were in absolutely no position but to use their hired spokesman to try to suppress any similar suggestions that justice be brought to bear by prosecuting them for their reckless abandonment and irresponsible neglect of their 3 small children which was beyond any doubt the reason why Madeleine McCann is no longer with them and in my opinion almost certainly dead.

Sorry but this just doesn’t hack it:

McCann spokesman Clarence Mitchell today declined to discuss the latest rant, having previously said: “Kate and Gerry will not be fuelling any of this pure speculation with any comment whatsoever.”

A spokesman stated:

“Any legal action against them would have failed. A court would have to show Kate and Gerry had wilfully neglected their daughter and her siblings, and they did not. They would have robustly defended any charges, if brought.”

Personally I believe this is nothing more than legal bluster, it is widely stated that occupants of the ajoining apartment had drawn to the McCann’s that their children had been seriously disturbed and crying on a previous occasion they had been abandoned – it is also indisputable that baby sitters were readily available at the resort and inexpensive.

To wilfully overlook these facts I consider unarguably a deliberate and wilfull act of neglect! An act of wilfull neglect made even more serious as both Kate McCann and her husband Gerry McCann were both trained as Doctors and all too well aware of the risk of leaving babies unattended for any period – let alone for a prolonged period carousing with their chums far beyond sight or sound of the children!

These are the very people, in terms of training, who would expect to be called as expert witnesses in the prosecution of a young couple who had wilfully abandoned their small children to go to the pub, during which time one had come to harm or died!

Why have the McCann’s been denied the right to clear their namnes, why have they not been prosecuted – could it be that justice is a matter of the depth of the pockets of the miscreants?

Hi,

it is hard to find fault with the arguments put forward by the Portuguese Criminal investigator Moita Flores, who was once attached to the Policia Judiciaria and before him Goncalas Amaral both police investigators who worked on the case of the disapearance of Madeleine McCann officially.

It has always been my personal opinion that due to the reckless abandonment of their 3 very young children whilst Kate and Gerry McCann, both Doctors whose training is the very bedrock of the laws related to criminal negligence and child neglect and child abuse, were the most clearly guilty in this case – They had neglected their 3 very young children to irresponsibly persue their own pleasure, when all too clearly they could afford to pay one of the readily available registered baby sitters available at the resort.

That over £11 Million of tax payers’ money has been squandered on this case without justice either being done or seen to be done, is in my opinion an obscene waste of public funds.

Had there been a single shred of evidence that the child had been deliberately abducted, perhaps one could justify the expense – but why have the parents not been put before the Courts for their criminal negligence that led to Madeleine McCann’s disapearance – had they taken the most basec of interest in the well being of their children with a baby sitter, the child would never have gone missing.

Had there been even a Coroner’s Court enquiry there was every hope that new evidence would have been exposed and scrutinised, a criminal prosecution of the parents for their criminal negligence would have probed even deeper to expose the truth and neither course of action would have dragged on for 10 years and it is unlikely a fraction of the £11M would have been spent, which it has been to date with no greater knowledge of what went on in that flat than 10 years ago!

The death of Madeleine McCann would have been a tragedy and could have been dealt with in a normal and responsible manner by both the Police, the public and the parents with lessons being learned by all.

That 2 of the investigating officers consider it a probability that the child died in the appartment in a tragic accident and have had the courage to speak out accordingly tends to confirm my own long held belief

That our conclussions having studied 1,000s of items of evidence and reports only confirms to me tthe belief that Justice has neither been done nor seen to be done. At least a prosecution of the parents for their undeniable offence would at very least give them the opportunity both to have ALL of the evidence exposed and scrutinised and also a chance to clear their names.

I would of course dearly love to hear of the discovery of Madeleine Mccann, as with cases like DuGard and the like – but let us not forget all those cases had one thing in common, they were of older children and for sexual gratification. Had this been such a case it is a near certainty that it would have led to death and how was absolutely no evidence left at the appartment, nor is there any clarity of evidence of abduction – the most likely item having been the sighting of a man, not undesimilar to Gerry McCann, carrying a child of about the right size over his shoulder late on that night – a sighting that was unconfirmed and uncorroborated!

One is forced to ponder, with regret, as to whether this incident had occured on a council house estate involving some mythical Damian and Tracey and the loss of their daughter of a similar age, whilst they were in the pub nextdoor, whether they could have drummed up £11Million and avoided prosecution or has education and status skewed the blindfolded balance of the scales of justice!

Madeleine McCann ‘Died In Holiday Apartment’ Claims Portuguese Crime Expert

‘I have no doubt.’

16/03/2017 12:19 | Updated 16 March 2017

A Portuguese crime expert has weighed in on the mystery over Madeleine McCann, claiming to know for certain what happened to the little girl.

Criminal investigator Moita Flores, who was once attached to the Policia Judiciaria which began the search for the missing child, made his remarks as intriguing new leads in the case began to emerge.

“Maddie died in that apartment, I have no doubt,” he said in comments reported by The Sun.  

YouTube
Moita Flores’ comments have been dismissed as ‘pure speculation’ by a spokesman for the McCanns 

Madeleine was nearly four when she vanished in 2007 from her family’s holiday apartment in Praia da Luz as her parents dined with friends at a tapas bar nearby. The McCanns have spoken of their bitter regret about leaving her and two-year-old twins Sean and Amelie alone. The missing girl would now be a teenager, but the family has never given up the search and remain hopeful she is alive.

While Portuguese and British detectives are united in probing fresh tips that Madeleine was spirited away by traffickers, Flores dismissed this, stating: “It would have been impossible to get through the window with a child.”

Clarence Mitchell told The Sun Online: “Kate and Gerry will not be fuelling any of this pure speculation with any comment whatsoever.”

A source close to the McCanns criticised Flores’ comments, accusing him of simply repeating claims made by Goncalo Amaral, a police officer against whom Madeleine’s parents recently lost an appeal in their libel case, after he alleged they were involved in their daughter’s disappearance.

The current investigation is reportedly on human traffickers who may have snatched her and sold her “to order.”

Kate and Gerry McCann remain certain their daughter is still alive 

Private investigators hired by the McCanns in 2007 reported the presence of men watching children at the beach with binoculars and taking pictures of them.

The McCanns believe images of their daughter may have been shared with traffickers who then selected her.

Officers are currently hunting a former Ocean Club worker who was at the resort when she vanished almost ten years ago.

While there is no suggestion the employee, who is said to be a Portuguese man who speaks some English, was involved directly in Madeleine’s disappearance, it is thought he may have information.

A British re-investigation into case was launched in 2011 after the initial one by the Portuguese authorities was deemed insufficient.

Caveat:

I appreciate that as a result of exposing the criminality, corruption or abuse of others and/or providing a venue to enable others to do likewise – many who feel threatened by my actions will seek to discredit me in any way they can and will invent or distort facts about me.
I accept that is a risk, to which I expose myself, however I am well aware that my friends know the truth, others with integrity can check the facts by contacting me and the corrupt, dishonest and gullible who promote or believe the lies published about me must answer to their own shame in the long run! Frankly I care not a jot what such people’s opinion of me is as their willingness to lie about me or accept or promote the lies about me speaks volumes of them and very little about me and affects me not one jot.

There is never a wrong time to do the right thing – or to help those less fortunate than oneself, even if there is personal risk.

Hi,

Kate and Gerry McCann ‘not formally in the clear’ over daughter Madeleine’s disappearance

The couple were ruled out as formal suspects, or “arguidos”, back in 2008 due to lack of evidence – but in court papers released today, judges have said this does not equate to a ruling of ­innocence

Kate and Gerry McCann have been dealt another cruel blow as a Portuguese court failed to put them in the clear over the disappearance of daughter Madeleine.

The couple were ruled out as formal suspects, or “arguidos”, back in 2008 – but in newly released court papers, judges have specified that this does not equate to a ruling of ­innocence.

It will add to the McCanns’ torment, after the same judges ruled against the couple last week in a legal battle with the police officer who led the hunt for their daughter.

The couple sued ex-police chief Goncalo Amaral after he wrote a book claiming they were responsible for Madeleine’s “death” in May 2007.

But he fought the case and Portugal’s Supreme Court sided with him.

In the 76-page ruling on the case – made public – they also said the archiving in 2008 of the criminal case into Madeline’s ­disappearance does not prove the McCanns are innocent.

They wrote: “It should not be said that the appellants were cleared via the ruling announcing the archiving of the criminal case.”

While the judges said it would be wrong to draw any inferences about the couple’s guilt or innocence from the decision, they noted that the case was not shelved because prosecutors believed that Kate and Gerry, from Rothley, Leics, were innocent – but due to a lack of evidence.

 
The court sided with Goncalo Amaral (Photo: Mirrorpix)

They wrote: “That ruling was not made in virtue of Portugal’s Public Prosecution Service having acquired the conviction that the appellants hadn’t committed a crime.

“The archiving of the case was determined by the fact that public prosecutors hadn’t managed to obtain sufficient evidence of the practice of crimes by the appellants.

The court concluded that the archiving of the case should not be seen as proof the McCanns are not guilty, stating: “It doesn’t therefore seem acceptable that the ruling, based on the insufficiency of evidence, should be equated to proof of innocence.”

 
How the Daily Mirror reported the court case

The damming document means suspicion still hangs over the heads of the McCanns, who have always claimed their innocence.

It was released after the court decided Amaral’s “right to freedom of expression” was worthy of greater protection than the couple’s “right to honour”.

Amaral, 57, was ordered to pay the couple £360,000 in damages in 2015 for claims he made in The Truth Of The Lie.

He said the McCanns faked Madeline’s abduction after she “died” in their holiday apartment. Amaral claimed his work was based on publicly available police and court files on the case. Kate described the book as “devastating and distressing”.

Amaral successfully overturned the ruling against him last April and the McCanns lodged a Supreme Court appeal.

But judges decided Amaral’s claims were “within admissible limits in a democratic and open society”. It means Kate and Gerry, both 48, face having to pay Amaral’s legal bills and could even be sued by him.

The McCanns may take the case to the European courts, but legal experts say they must prove they have a valid reason of appeal before any hearing would be even considered.

Madeline vanished from an apartment in Praia da Luz as her parents ate at a nearby restaurant. Detectives are said to be working on a theory that she was kidnapped by a European trafficking gang.

Abandoning A Child Is A Criminal Offence

Abandoning A Child Is A Criminal Offence

Abandoning A Child Is A Criminal Offence & 105 parents have been arrested for the crime in the last 3 months.

Hi,

minded that a Freedom of Information request has provided the information that in the last 3 months over 100 parents have been arrested for leaving their children home alone (reckless abandonment defines the crime more than adequately!) and:

Chris Cloke, from the NSPCC, said:
“Although there is no legal minimum age for leaving children at home alone, no-one should leave a child unattended if they think they’ll be at risk.

And it’s never acceptable to leave babies and very young children on their own for any length of time.

Perhaps someone can explain why when such arrests take place when no harm has come to the children, based purely on the risk, just why when Kate & Gerry McCann abandoned their three babies, the oldest was Madeleine at 3.1/2, and then went out carousing with a group of friends in a local Tapas bar, in a foreign country – NO PROSECUTION took place.

To compound the injustice Madeleine went missing that night and may well have died by accidental causes.

Seven years later this small child has never been seen since and there is every probability that she died that fateful night, despite unsubstantiated claims of abduction and other obfuscating claims then and since – seven years later Kate & Gerry McCann have not only grossed 100s of 1,000s of Pounds even perhaps £Millions in donations and what seem to spurious damages claims as they have been compensated for their apparent criminal negligence by people who voiced detailed concerns and speculations as febrile as those constructed by the McCanns themselves, about what could possibly have happened to the small child that night.

Just why have these two not been arrested and treated like criminals as have been the 105 arrested for lesser offences in the last 3 months?

Whilst the police have prosecuted many of those who they arrested most of the balance have received official cautions, yet Kate and Gerry McCann have drifted from sofa to sofa giving well practiced interviews and have become celebrities in their own right; celebrities seemingly not only thus enriched but also protected from due process of law for their undeniably criminal behaviour.

Further as both Kate & Gerry McCann are qualified medical Doctors they were clearly even more aware of the risk they were taking with their babies wellbeing and possibly lives, than most, when they took the premeditated decision to abandon them to go out for the evening for their own gratification.

Prosecutions of parents who abandon their children or otherwise neglect them frequently call in Doctors as medical experts for the prosecution! It may even be possible that at some time either or both of them may themselves have been called upon as medical experts in such circumstances – yet they have not been prosecuted for the crime!

There is a maxim in British law that states that not only should justice be done but justice should be seen to be done – why has this not been upheld?

There is also an understanding that no one should be permitted to profit from their criminality, yet Kate & Gerry McCann would seem to have greatly profitted both financially and in public status amongst some who astonishingly condone and defend their irresponsible behaviour and its tragic outcome for Madeleine.

Why was not Madeleine as a mere baby protected by the law as there would seem to be absolutely no justice granted the child for its death, which after 7 years can surely be assumed and were a responsible application by the guardian, who in this case is the Court, it is more than probable that a Coroners Court would find that she was legally dead as there has been absolutely zero evidence led to lead any sane individual to believe she might be alive nor any sustainable evidence that she was even abducted in the first place – merely uncorroborated speculation.

When will Madeleine McCann receive the justice she deserves?

Essex parents arrested for leaving children home alone

First published Friday 27 March 2015 in News

Last updated 16:18 Friday 27 March 2015

FIVE parents in Essex were arrested on suspicion of leaving their children home alone in the space of just three months.

The figures, which were released by Essex Police as part of a Freedom of Information request, date back to October, November and December 2014.

Police forces in West Yorkshire, Kent, Derbyshire, and Thames Valley were the only authorities to make more arrests than Essex.

The law does not specify at what age parents can leave their children alone, but those who chose to do so can be arrested and prosecuted for cruelty and neglect if it puts the youngsters at risk.

A total of 105 mothers and fathers across the country faced criminal charges during the three month period, with cases involving children aged from just a few weeks to 14-years-old.

Thirty of those arrested were released without further action, 24 accepted a police caution and 19 were charged.

Other cases are ongoing.

Chris Cloke, from the NSPCC, said: “Although there is no legal minimum age for leaving children at home alone, no-one should leave a child unattended if they think they’ll be at risk.

“And it’s never acceptable to leave babies and very young children on their own for any length of time.”

Let The Public Record Show The Neglect Of Madeleine McCann!

Let The Public Record Show The Neglect Of Madeleine McCann!.

Hi,

it is interesting to note from this otherwise apparently sycophantically conducted interview that it would seem very clear that when Kate & Gerry McCann returned from their evening out carousing with their chums, irresponsibly and some may well claim criminally, having abandoned their three very young children unattended did not participate in the physical search for their missing daughter!

The following video clip from the Sky News on Christmas Eve in 2007 would seem unequivocally to question, if not imply, that Kate & Gerry McCann were materially responsible, if not culpable, in the disappearance of their three year old daughter Madeleine having allegedly recklessly abandoned her with her two year old twin siblings to go out for the evening carousing with their chums in the local tapas bar!

You will note that both of the above videos were available from You Tube, which although no seal of approval of content stand clearly as part of the public record of the events of the dubious behaviour of the McCanns towards their 3 children particularly in the light of the fact that as qualified Doctors it would be their ilk who would be called in a British Court of Law as expert witnesses in any Social Services case seeking removal of small children, from their parents, in instances of negligence and child abuse!
