George Laird: Team McCann taking Gonçalo Amaral to court opened the floodgates, NPIA report states the parents should be investigated

Posted by George Laird

Dear All

The decision by Gerald Patrick and Kate McCann to pursue Gonçalo Amaral was a mistake, rather than stopping information coming into the public domain they created a flood.

A National Policy Investigation report, a British private body considers that not only the abduction should be investigated but also the death of Madeleine McCann.

The report states that criminal profiler Lee Rainbow who went to Praia da Luz had 'a strong conviction of the parent’s involvement into their daughter’s disappearance'.

It seems that the McCann bubble has finally burst.

The report’s contents make for interesting reading with comments such as;

“It was Madeleine's father who was the last one to see her alive”.

“The family is a lead that should be followed”.

“The contradictions in Gerald McCann's statements might lead us to suspect a homicide".

"On June 1st 2007 British police had the theory that Madeleine could be dead and the family could be involved".

At present, the Madeleine McCann case has been archived by the Portuguese Police for the last three years.

During this time both Gerald Patrick and Kate McCann could have asked for the case to be reopened.

They did not.

The Portuguese Police need to reopen this case and start again from scratch.

The McCanns’ should be subject to an EU arrest warrant and returned to Portugal to answer questions under oath in a Court of Law as well as the Tapas 7.

Finally, is not sad that Gerald Patrick and Kate McCann are prepared to travel thousands of miles but on the night of their daughter’s disappearance they never joined the search for her themselves?

Mind you there is rather a lot of money on the table now that wasn’t available in Praia da Luz in May 2007.


I remember Gerald McCann from Glasgow University, he is the kind of person when you walk pass, you instinctively turn round and check.
