The Find Madeleine fund said all information privately gathered during the search for Madeleine "has been fully acted upon where necessary" and passed on to Scotland Yard.

Evidently not correct seeing as SY had to contact the authors of the report i.e. Oakley International !

depends who you want to believe

Always listen to both sides of the story before you judge.

The first storyteller you will always find has modified the story, for there benefit BE WISE.

Oh dear the Telegraph and the Sunday Times.

Lets hope the journalistic might of the highly esteemed Daily Star can help them out of this crises.


No doubt Clarence has plenty of "Maddie held by gypsies" stories to help them out.

Portuguese police held their own Madeleine McCann reconstruction

A RECONSTRUCTION by Portuguese detectives of key events on the day Madeleine McCann went missing has helped persuade the country's legal offi-cials to re-open the case, we reveal today.

By: James Murray
Published: Sun, October 27, 2013

The detectives, who have been reviewing the case files for two years, went to Praia da Luz on the Algarve a month ago to pursue secret inquiries.

They spent hours walking around the Ocean Club working out where certain people were seen at particular times and at Apartment 5a, from where threeyear-old Madeleine went missing on May 3, 2007.

The exercise was the culmination of months of work by four Portuguese detectives based in Porto in the north of the country, who are directly working for the highly respected senior officer Helen Monteiro, an expert on abduction cases.

It is thought her elite team of dedicated officers has recently been concentrating on statements from witnesses who say they saw unknown people acting suspiciously in the resort around the time the child was missed. The work in Luz came before Scotland Yard released photofits of potential suspects on the BBC's Crimewatch show this month.

Often there are almost perfect crimes and not all of them are discovered all over the world

Paula Teixeira da Cruz, Portuguese Justice Minister
 
Ms Monteiro has insisted all her officers work in absolute secrecy to prevent leaks of their inquiries. It was decided officers in Porto should conduct the review as none had any direct involvement in the first Madeleine McCann investigation and would therefore approach the case with fresh eyes and open minds.

In Portugal, Ms Monteiro is seen as the driving force finally to get the Madeleine case files re-opened after five years, rather than through the efforts of Scotland Yard. She and her team are working separately from the Yard, although there is close liaison between the two.

Yesterday Portuguese Justice Minister Paula Teixeira da Cruz said the decision to reopen the case, taken last week, was due to the work of the Policia Judiciaria and not because of pressure from Scotland Yard. She said: "The PJ developed diligences that allowed for this process to be reopened. Often there are almost perfect crimes and not all of them are discovered all over the world. If the PJ requested the reopening, it has good motives to do so."

Portuguese law officials and senior officers in the PJ have been acutely aware of criticism of the initial police investigation and insist they are determined to solve the case.

Ms Teixeira da Cruz urged people to be "proud" of the work being done by the PJ, which she insisted had not been idle in seeking to solve the mystery.

For a time Madeleine's parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, were seen as arguidos or suspects but that status was lifted. Now they are being kept fully informed of all developments and were given a personal briefing of the work of the PJ in Lisbon last week.

The McCann's Portuguese lawyer, Rogerio Alves, is reportedly seeking for his clients to be "assistants" in the case. This would allow their lawyer to work closely with state prosecutors.

Thats the way the press works. One paper is often the first to run with a story that could cause waves, especially when it concerns people who are know to be particularly litigious. Then other papers, who were more cautious are free to report that other papers have reported it. Papers are not there to report what other papers say, they only use that as "cover" when they are concerned about being sued.  The second paper also has corroborative information that warrants publication.

That's very true and is quite significant....the telegraph has been very guarded about what it has printed which indicates it suspects possible litigation...so its not just me who thinks carter ruck will be expecting another bumper pay day

The Telegraph won't have a copy of the suppressed report - they're just reporting what another paper is reporting. Newspapers do this all the time when they don't have their own source.

First it was significant that no other paper was reporting it, now another one has and it's even more significant! Fancy that!!

I don't think the McCanns would react to The Times story or any story about them at this point.

They right now got what they wanted, there is an active police investigation looking for Madeleine. Nothing else matters.

they haven't broken the same story..the telegraph have dropped the times in it by "quoting" them...that's all they have done. the more papers that quote the times then the more chance of legal action. In fact the guarded way the telegraph have reported the story indicates that they expect action against the times..

The content of the news article(s) is not really the point. The real story here is that two papers have now printed stories that paint the McCanns in a less than glowing light.

This is on top of the Murdoch controlled Fox news in the US who interviewed some 'expert' who was also critical.

This is worrying news for the McCanns - we all know how quickly the media can turn against people and they do have a massive influence on public opinion.

I don't think the Mccanns will react either. Because it's true. If an active police investigation was that important they would have asked for it to be kept open in 2008.

This is MASSIVE news. It makes a mockery of their 'no stone unturned' campaign.
