Very true, it's sad that people like Van der Leek still attempt to make money on the back of a little girl's demise. Opportunistic and contrived to coincide with the tenth anniversary of Madeleine's disappearance, they should be ashamed of themselves.
I think the problem may be that rather than look at Madeleine's case from a different perspective they are covering the same ground as everyone else has.
There are aspects of the case which have not benefited from in-depth investigation.
For example has anyone ever written in depth about vital evidence which may have been in existence but which was lost making it irrecoverable by Rebelo's team when they were sorting through the chaos they had inherited?Correio da Manhã 21.10.07
Investigation: Perplexity over news
Ill-feelings at the PJ
The theory that the Maddie case investigation failed to give value to some clues and that the process was disorganized, is causing ill-feelings within some sectors of Policia Judiciaria. This idea has been circulating within judicial circles and has been echoed through some news, that connect it with the team of Paulo Rebelo, the new coordinator of the Criminal Investigation Department in Portimao.
Over the last few days, as the new Rebelo team has been gaining knowledge of the inquiry, the theory has been spreading that the investigation is weak, and with few clues. Yesterday, 'Expresso' cited sources at the PJ that said they had found "important material spread all over, which had not been included in the investigation", and that the new team in Portimao "had a hideous amount of work to do" in order to organise the files. Worse: That the new team considered "there was a lot of important information that was despised in the investigation".
After these news, the silence that surrounds the investigation has thickened. None of the former leaders of the case - Gonçalo Amaral, Guilhermino Encarnação and Luis Neves - comments on the cited news. But several sources in the police have told CM that the news are causing "perplexity" and that they cannot be connected with the investigators from Lisbon who are analysing the case. Paulo Rebelo and the team he has chosen are pointed out as very experienced people, who are used to deal with pressure and who would not easily fall prey to the ingenuity of making precipitated judgements of value.
The investigation is still with the same group that was already working on it before - with the obvious exception of Gonçalo Amaral - and the four policemen who travelled from Lisbon are still reading the process. It is an acquired piece of data that the investigation's direction from now on will be that of a homicide case, just as the trio formed by Gonçalo Amaral, Guilhermino Encarnação and Luis Neves already considered it.http://themaddiecasefiles.com/topic2332.html?sid=26f577f3d99a46e7fb4356c8a98f48eb#p27076
