Goncalo Amaral DID NOT LIE about Madeleine: Today (7 Dec 2015) Daily Express publishes, on page 21, an offical correction to its 29 Apr 2015 headline



Posted by Tony Bennett on the CMOMM forum:

On 2 May this year I made a complaint against a headline in the Daily Express which ran:

'MADDY DETECTIVE DID LIE ABOUT DEATH COVER-UP CLAIM'.

As my colleagues in Mods & Admin are aware, to extract this correction, published on page 21 of today's Daily Express, has taken 7 months of letters and negotiation back and forth with the Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO) and with the Express Head of Legal Affairs, Barbara Ludlow.

I understand that I am not allowed to publish any of the correspondence, but I am told that a formal report on my complaint will be published on the IPSO website next week.

In the end, I accepted the wording you see below. Had I not done so, this would have gone to formal adjudication, and I personally doubt if I would have got a different result.

The result is a correction in the bottom left-hand corner of the page - see below.

Was it worth it?

Goncal Amaral was publicly accused in the Express's headline of having 'Lied about death cover-up claim'.

That has now been publicly corrected.

He did not lie.

I am personally content that I have not wasted my time and effort:

FOI Act 2000 request made 30 Nov 2015 - OPERATION GRANGE - Smithman, Tannerman, Closure of Case, Final Report

 Tony Bennett Today at 12:38
I successfully submitted this request to the Metropolitan Police earlier today:

[ NOTE:  I made this request via the 'What Do They Know' website. Any member of CMOMM or guest can follow the Metropolitan Police's responses to my request at this link: //www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/up_to_date_information_about_the ]  



Dear Metropolitan Police Service (MPS),

A petition on the Prime Minister's website calling for publication of  a report on the work of Operation Grange has attracted over 900 signatures so far.   

Please provide the following information about Operation Grange:

1. On 14 October 2013 on BBC Crimewatch, DCI Andy Redwood presented two e-fit images of a man he said was 'the centre of our focus'. He asked people to say who he might be. He announced days later that hundreds had called in with a possible identification. Are we, the public, still supposed to be looking for him? Or has been traced, identified and eliminated?

2. On the McCanns' 'Find Madeleine' website, there is an image of a faceless man - whom the McCann investigation team still say is a suspect - wearing a dark jacket and beige trousers, which was drawn up by Melissa Little, paid for by the head of the McCanns' private investigation team, Brian Kennedy, based on the recollections of Jane Tanner, and released to the public in late October 2007, nearly six months after the reported disappearance  of Madeleine McCann.  Is Operation Grange still asking (as they were previously) for the public's help in tracing this man, as well as the man in the two e-fits? Or not?

3. Who will  make the final decision as to whether or not to close or 'shelve' the active investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann...
(a) The current DCI, Nicola Wall, or any successor of hers?
(b) The current S.I.O. or her/his successor?
(c) A more senior Met Police Officer?
(d) Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, or any successor of his?
(e) The Home Secretary?
(f) The Prime Minister? - or
(g) Someone else?

4. If and when Operation Grange is closed, or the investigation is 'shelved', is it the Met Police's intention to provide a report to either (a) the public (b) the Mayor of London's Police Committee (c) the Home Secretary  or (c) the Prime Minister on its work and achievements.
Yours faithfully,



Anthony Bennett

Operations Yewtree, Midland, Fairbank versus Operation Grange






According to FOI requests the Operation Grange investigation, into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, has cost millions of pounds MORE than the investigations into child abuse/murders spent on Operation Yewtree, Operation Midland and Operation Fairbank.

Operation Grange v Operations Yewtree/Fairbank/Midland

Brenda Leyland - Hounded to death by McCann supporters, Sky News and Martin Brunt


Brenda Leyland was doorstepped on 2 October 2014 by Sky reporter Martin Brunt who accused her of 'attacking' the McCanns. On Friday the mainstream press attacked Brenda without mercy. The next day she was found dead in a Leicester hotel room having, apparently, taken her own life.

Why did Sky News and Martin Brunt get away with this?


 

Who added data to Gonçalo Amaral's Gofundme Legal Defence page (which has now raised over £50k) and is it preventing Google searches?

Posted by HiDeHo on the CMOMM forum:

Has SOMEONE (Google?) added data to the GoFundMe page to prevent successful searches for Gonçalo Amaral FUND page?
Upon checking the view source page there is added data that does not show in a random Gofundme page as can be seen in the  graphic. ''

Could this be to prevent people searching for the fund on Google and if so...WHY??
