Money laundering? Or another extension for their house? Kate and Gerry McCann hamper the search for Madeleine by placing half a million pounds of public donations in 'investments'

Lawyer confirmed couple are fighting a court judgment which could cost them hundreds of thousands and wipe out the “Find Madeleine” fund
McCanns launch new court battle against cop's claims they faked Maddie abduction amid fears his case could leave search fund broke

But the trustees / Directors of the "Fund" said a long time ago that it could NOT be used for legal expenses ! Ester McVey (who then became a short lived MP) resigned very shortly after saying this in public . . .

According to the latest accounts filed last month the couple’s Find Madeleine fund has just £200,000 left after half a million was placed in investments. Experts say legal fees and a possible pay-out to Amaral would easily dwarf this sum, leaving no cash left to continue the couple’s efforts to find their daughter.
  
 
"placed in investments . . .? Who authorised this ? Where is it NOW ? Who has control ? And what "efforts" have they made to find their daughter ?


Amaral was relaxing this week in the Olivais region in the north of the capital Lisbon. A local who spotted Amaral dining told the Sunday People: “He rarely mentions it. We know who he is – everybody does.”

A shopkeeper added: “He comes to the newsagents and then goes to one of the restaurants here for lunch.”

Roadsweeper Enrique Gonzalez said: “He is popular with all of the police officers who live and work around here.
“He comes and talks about the old times.”
Brilliant.
