Madeleine McCann and the 48 police questions her mother refused to answer to help find her



Statement from The Madeleine Foundation:

In order to highlight a key aspect of the Madeleine McCann case, namely Dr Kate McCann's refusal to answer any one of 48 questions put to her by the Portuguese Police on 7 September 2007, The Madeleine Foundation has just published (13 July) a special YouTube video on the subject.

Our Secretary, Tony Bennett, reads out each of the 48 questions, with the text of those questions being clearly shown across the screen as he speaks. Already many poeple have told us of the impact on them of hearing and seeing these questions. It has led them to think again about these questions and ponder on why Dr McCann refused to answer any of them. In just under 10 minutes' viewing, the key issues in this case are highlighted. Please pass this message on so that as many people as possible become better informed about the issues surrounding Madeleine McCann's mysterious disappearance.

Already the video has been seen by nearly 1,000 people in just its first two days.

You can catch up with all that we're doing, and read many articles about the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, on our website: http://www.madeleinefoundation.org.uk/

Update: The youtube video seems to have been carter-rucked but you can read the 48 questions here in the Daily Mail or see the video on this blog where you can also read the shocking witness statements given to the Portuguese police, by two British doctors, that suggests there was a child molestor within the group of friends: http://gasparstatements.blogspot.com/2010/07/48-questions-that-youtube-wont-let-you.html

Statement from the Madeleine Foundation - 16 July:

Late yesterday we received an e-mail from Steve Loughrey at Carter Ruck demanding that our 48 question U-tube video be pulled immediately on the grounds that it was libelous.The Madeleine Foundation absolutely denies that the U-tube video is libelous. On the contrary, it is a factual account of the exact 48 questions that Dr. Kate McCann refused to answer. In addition, in the introduction to the video we told viewers the 2 reasons given by the McCanns for her refusing to answer the questions, (1. Her solicitor advising her of her right to remain silent, and 2. her belief that the police were suspecting her instead of looking for Madeleine. The Madeleine Foundation has attempted to contact U-tube at numerous times in the past 24 hours but all attempts have failed so far. There are other outlets for videos and we will be seeking to upload our video elsewhere as soon as we can.

McCann's lawyers, Carter Ruck also seem to be passing information to internet stalker/ex policeman 'muratfan'/Ian West of Norfolk, who refers to solicitors at Carter Ruck as his "best mates".
