Title: Was Anyone Right To Criticise The Policia Judiciaria?
Post by: Holly Goodhead on August 16, 2019, 08:36:43 AM
The above was brought up in a post on another thread so I thought I would nip it in the bud and start a new thread.

Regardless of what anyone believes has happened to MM the case has highly unusual features for PJ.   Despite this it seems to me they were far more organised than the British police have been in investigating homegrown cases with unusual features. 

I read a comment somewhere that said the Portuguese authorities perceived the early interference of the British authorities as akin to a former colonial power wanting to take over!

As I've said previously if my theory is correct it is absolutely damning for the UK police and this is the reason I am keen to pass all the info sent to Op Grange to head of PJ.

I think its absolutely right to criticise teh PJ initial investigation on the basis they completelt misunderstood the evidence in making the mccanns arguidos. This was evidenced in teh archiving report which stated none of the evidence used to make the mccanns arguido was confirmed. I dont see anything damning re the UK police taht can be substantiated

by misunderstanding the evidence the emphasis of the investigation was taken in teh wrong direction

There is a interesting piece in the interview with Rowley where Brunt the interviewee tried to criticise the PJ,Rowley pointed out the PJ collected the mobile phone intel on which Redwood acted upon in going after the 3 amigo's.
An interviewee some time ago  in an interview with Hogan Howe tried to criticise,Howe wouldn't have it.
OG at a not inconsiderable cost translated the files,their help in trying to find out what happened is based on them.
The criticism's will no doubt come from those who haven't a clue on policing methods but are strong on key board semantics.

Were the McCanns made aguidos solely on the 'evidence'.  Robert Murat and other have since been made aguidos without such evidence.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arguido

If a person becomes an arguido, they automatically gain certain rights that a witness or suspect would not have.[7] An arguido has the right to be accompanied by a lawyer when questioned.[5] The investigating police may ask the arguido more direct accusatory questions (the answers to which would not be admissible in court if possibly self-incriminatory and asked of a non-arguido) but the arguido must be presented with whatever evidence is held against them,[7] and unlike a witness has the right to remain silent,[8] not to answer any question that may incriminate the person, and does not face legal action for lying.[9]

Witnesses in criminal investigations are legally bound to co-operate with the police and do not have the right to silence and face legal actions if they lie.[7][9] Because of the legal advantages, some individuals apply for arguido status to be given to themselves, e.g. when it would appear that the police suspect them but are trying to use their witness status to extract as much information as possible.[7]

A person who has arguido status has not been formally accused of a crime, arrested or charged,[10] and not all arguidos are subsequently charged.[1] The police may ask a court to restrict an arguido's movement and oblige them to not leave the country.[1] Arguidos cannot change their place of residence, without permission from a court.[10] There is no time limit on the status.[11]

It actually staes in the archiving report that none of the evidence used to make the mccanns arguidos was confirmed. Its clear from the files taht the pJ did not listen to the advice of the uK police re the evidence.

I have provided an article from the guardian taht has Almeida stating that the main evidence against the mccanns was......am i allowed to say.....when they had been told taht this"evidence" had no evidential value.

we were also told in the Netflix Doc that when the PJ received the report from teh FSS...they only read the first paragraph..re 15 markers., and failed to raed or understand the rest of the report. That is pretty damning to me



To this can be added that, in reality, none of the indications that led to their constitution as arguidos was later confirmed or consolidated. If not, let us see: the information concerning a previous alert of the media before the polices was not confirmed, the traces that were marked by the dogs were not ratified in laboratory, and the initial indications from the above transcribed email, better clarified at a later date, ended up being revealed as innocuous.

But where's the evidence the McCanns were made aguidos solely on the 'evidence'.  Robert Murat and others were also made aguidos on no such 'evidence'. 

The McCanns may have been made arguidos to allow PJ to pursue a more direct accusatory line of questioning.

I never said they were made arguido solely on evidence. What I have said is taht the initial PJ investigation misunderstood the evidence...they thought they had proof Maddie died in the apartment...see amaral doc.
Amaral told us taht it wa sthe whole investigation taht shared his views. They were wrong and therfore deserve criticism

I was just being silly about a flag being raised.

I had thought initially KM might have 'staged' the shutter/window not to cover up anything about MM's disappearance per se but because she felt embarrassed, guilty etc about leaving the children alone in the unlocked apartment.  So I was kind of with PJ on it.  But now I believe the abductor(s) staged the shutter/window as it all fits puuuuurfectly with my theory.

But is it a man thing in that a group of investigators almost exclusively male cannot simply say 'sorry we've done our best and we can't solve it'.

The case against the McCanns was a non-starter hence it went nowhere.  In other cases the so-called evidence against individuals has been weak or non-existent but the police resort to 'noble cause corruption' and other such measures and then we end up with miscarriages of justice.

No police force is above criticism, especially one that fails to find a missing child, and fails to solve the case, that goes for any police force anywhere.  Furthermore, the PJ have been criticised by people who are well-placed to judge and they are entitled to their opinions,  In Malaysia you must not question the police or speculate about what happened on pain of punishment, letís hope we never find ourselves living in a society where one may not criticise those wielding the power.

I think the personal attacks by the UK media on the Policia Judiciaria was an absolute disgrace. It was zenophobic and unwarranted. I saw it beginning to develop again towards the Malaysian police recently.

Holly was perfectly right; people are made arguidos because of the questions that the police want to ask them. Murat and the four 'burglars' were made arguidos because of suspicions, not because of hard evidence and it was the same with the McCanns.

Funny how some people here have no problem whatsoever criticising parental decisions (McCanns, Quorins) but when it comes to the police one must accept that they are above criticism (but only if they are foreign - UK cops are also ripe for a good kicking).

i think the criticism was warranted based on the fact tha tthe initial PJ investigation completely misunderstood the important evidence. IMO there was an agenda to protect portugal and blame the brits....i see the same happening in Malaysia now with a post mortem ruling out foul play to save Malaysias reputation.. I beleive the SC was similarly biased.

I think whatís at play here is the ďracismĒ card.  You canít criticise foreign police forcesí obvious failings because thatís waycist and colonialist and how very dare we be so mean.  Thereís also a good dollop of British self-loathing in the mix too. IMO.

In your opinion.  I think itís fair comment.  Did you not see the photos of fat, sweaty Goncalo in the papers at the time, looking like a real scruff bag?  And we all know how much the Portuguese like sardines, itís an established fact.  The British self-loathing comes from the determination of some to run down all things British in order to excuse all things Portuguese of their short-comings.  It happens all the time on here.

I would rather be fair and impartial than insulting, biased and zenophobic. I think every police officer in every country does his or her best. Their best isn't always enough, but I would never sink to directing personal attacks at anyone to try and discredit them.

Anyone who thinks personal attacks on anyone are OK is not my kind of person. I have always opposed such behaviour which I see as childish, ignorant, bullying and immature.

In my opinion the media had nothing concrete to criticise the Portuguese police with, and neither did the McCanns. Kate in particular took to personal ridicule and complaining about a lack of refreshments, smoking and fast driving. Not one word of appreciation for the cancelled holidays, the long hours and the immense effort and expense Portugal expended because she put her pleasure before the safety of her children.

Amaral was out at midnight drinking during the working week and then drinking again lunchtime... Long boozy lunches we are told...i don't see how he was fit to work


He instead enjoyed a twohour 10 minute lunch washed down with wine. The next day was a similar tale - lunch lasted two-and-a-half hours. And on Friday he was gone for more than three.


His longest session, which lasted three hours and 10 minutes, was on Friday afternoon. It meant he could not have carried out more than four-and-a-half hours of work all day. Amaral, 47, who has a young daughter, is No3 in the Madeleine inquiry, in charge of its day-to-day running. After one drinking spree this week, the moustachioed police chief got in his car and drove home.

Imagine for a moment that the McCanns had hired a baby-sitter on 3rd. The baby-sitter felt hungry and went out to buy a take-away. She was only gone for 30 minutes, but when she returned MM had disappeared. She said PdL felt so safe she thought the children would be fine for half an hour. Do you think;

a) The McCanns would say her actions were within the bounds of reasonable baby-sitting
b) The McCanns would accuse her of carelessness and failing in her duty of care.

I have criticised the PJ.

I feel they should have seperated the T9 immediatly, and questioned them individually. Not given them time to 'discuss'  a timeline.

They should also have charged them with what ever law they had to cover their behaviour regarding their childrens welfare.

I feel they were given too much of a say at the begining.


With regards to all the other negative stuff I found that embarrassing and'little Englander mentality'.


The PJ had to work with made up  timelines, which didn't fit, they thought they were dealing with a missing child who wandered- this changed drastically to MBM being abducted. Chopping and changing direction is a serious contender for people who have something to hide.


I am of the opinion the PJ were begining to see more to this than they initially thought when they were at the scene witnessing the behaviour etc- T9 saw this which is why they began that eve by their attack on the police. Accusing them of doing nothing and leaving Kate and Gerry to go look  for theoir daughter by themselves, which was a lie.

OK that is your view but would you like to put some suggested times to your plan?

1. "I feel they should have separated the T9 immediately"  When should that have happened?  What time and who by the GNR or the PJ?

2.  "and questioned them individually"  Would that mean they would be locked up until interpreters are located?
Who's looking after the remaining 7 kids while the parents are detained?

3.  "They should also have charged them with what ever law they had to cover their behaviour regarding their children's welfare."  When would they get arguido status for that crime?  That status would interfere with the above questioning wouldn't it?

As soon as the GNR police got there and saw what was happening -had happened.They should have been removed and taken to local police dept. interpretors brought in and the nannies used look after the remaining children.

Inhave it on very good authority- this is what would have happened if they were in the UK. children's family would be asked to look after them or placed in foster care.

In my theory there would have been an advantage if what you propose did happen,  but how certain can the GNR be that there wasn't a little girl lost in the streets of PdL?

Do the GNR have the power to arrest and detain?  Or is that just a PJ function?

I have criticised the PJ.

I feel they should have seperated the T9 immediatly, and questioned them individually. Not given them time to 'discuss'  a timeline.

They should also have charged them with what ever law they had to cover their behaviour regarding their childrens welfare.

I feel they were given too much of a say at the begining.


With regards to all the other negative stuff I found that embarrassing and'little Englander mentality'.


The PJ had to work with made up  timelines, which didn't fit, they thought they were dealing with a missing child who wandered- this changed drastically to MBM being abducted. Chopping and changing direction is a serious contender for people who have something to hide.


I am of the opinion the PJ were begining to see more to this than they initially thought when they were at the scene witnessing the behaviour etc- T9 saw this which is why they began that eve by their attack on the police. Accusing them of doing nothing and leaving Kate and Gerry to go look  for theoir daughter by themselves, which was a lie.

As it is, I don't take your meanderings too seriously.

I agree MTI.  The fact that they refused to participate in a reconstruction says it all in my book.

The Smiths are unreliable witnesses in spite of taking part in a reconstruction. The parents and their friends are reliable in spite of not taking part in a reconstruction. Itís a rum old world.

A child disappeared yet when the police asked the tapas group to assist the investigation they all reneged. I'm sure if Maddie is still alive she will be so grateful for this.

If Madeleine is alive then a reconstruction by her family and their friends would have done absolutely nothing whatsoever to enable her to be found.

You should join the police VS.  After all, you appear to know more than they did and they were there. 😂

I donít need to have joined the police to see how completely illogical your post is.

By that logic if she is dead then a reconstruction would have helped find out what happened.

The so called "reconstitution" has been flogged to death on numerous occasions on the forum and as far as I am concerned really doesn't require revisiting.
However I think it is worthwhile belaying that opinion to ask you the way in which you think a reconstruction as proposed by the Portuguese would have progressed Madeleine's case? ... glutton for punishment as I am|

Having seen the effects of being declared as an arguido I could imagine the other members of the T9 and Jez Wilkins were justified to be reluctant to return to Portugal.

Bit of a bummer then for the 4 residents of Luz and surrounds who were arguidoed at OG request in July 2014?  Maybe they should have left Portugal to avoid that experience?

It certainly was a bit if a bummer for them, especially if they had nothing to do with the disappearance.  Of course, they still havenít been cleared so it is still possible that they did.

How do we know if they have had any bad effects from being made arguidos?

Yes! bit remiss of them not to open up a company 'fund' to fight the accusations using the best lawyers other peoples money can buy!

The T9 left devistation in that community, and never aknowledged responsibility on their part for a little girl- still missing.
