Leonora:
December 2010
17. Worked on tender for Grand Mosque at Mekka. Alone at home after work, as Tanja was at works party until after midnight.
18. Collected Tanja from the bus at 1.38 a.m. Helped landlord Chris Jefferies move his car in the snow during the morning. At 24th birthday party for Elizabeth Marland at the Pitcher & Piano with Tanja during the evening.
20. Woken at 4.15 a.m. by a police officer, Anneleise Jackson, with another police officer and the neighbour, Greg Reardon, whose girlfriend, Joanna Yeates, had gone missing. E-mailed Tanja at work about how upset I was about this. Tanja e-mailed back, "Hope she will turn up at home all of a sudden". I attended a dinner party at Glen O'hare's in the evening with Tanja.
21. Questioned by detective constable Simon Mills in connection with Joanna Yeates's disappearance. During the afternoon I sent Tanja a link to the video of a gloomy press conference the police had just held, with Joanna's tearful parents and boyfriend. We were both surprised that they thought she might have left home by herself, and Tanja wrote that it was "creepy".
22. Asked boss, Shrikant Sharma, for his understanding over the difficulties caused by the intense police and media interest.
23. Tanja e-mailed me at work that she is feeling "unsettled" by the police investigation, and a little later, "Don't read the latest BBC News - it's so upsetting, I had to get up from my desk". I e-mailed her that it would help if I read less news. Police officers searched the flat. Drove with Tanja to Babraham, Cambridge, to stay at Tanja's parents'.
24. Detective Constable Karen Thomas rang to ask for more details of events on 17 to 19 December.
25. Discussed the discovery of Joanna's body with Tanja's parents and brother Gunter.
28. Drove with Tanja via Channel Tunnel to Netherlands for New Year in two chalets in a holiday colony with Marcel and his three children, Ilse and Eileen and their husbands, and Cora.
29. Saw angry Chris Jefferies on the news saying some very strange things to a crowd of journalists outside our house in Clifton.
30. Saw on the news from England that Chris Jefferies had been arrested. Talked to Tanja about telling the police what the landlord had seen and the movement of his car. Tanja phoned to Bristol. The police want to interview us in Holland.
31. Drove with Tanja and Eileen to a hotel at Schiphol to be interviewed for 6 hours by DC Karen Thomas and her colleague. She kept twisting what we said to her. She took a swab for DNA. Then back to the colony. E-mailed Erik to wish him happy new year and tell him that Tanja and I plan to get married.

Leonora:
January 2011
02. Drove with Tanja to Clifton via Channel Tunnel. Went to 44 Canynge Road to collect our things. Let into our flat by Police Constable Steve Archer. Took possession of a flat at 37 Aberdeen Road, Cotham, belonging to Emily Williams, a former Dyson colleague of Tanja's who is on a month's vacation in Chile.
03. Saw a report in The Daily Mail that a sample of DNA found on Joanna Yeates's body could be crucial in the hunt for her killer.
05. Back to work.
15. Went for a cycle ride. While stopping at 44 Canynge Road, I was approached by a short-sighted reporter, Hilary Douglas, who wanted to know if I had murdered Joanna. I told her that we were all very upset by her death, and that I only came back there at weekends. In the evening, I went with Tanja to a dinner party at Andrew Lillie's and Laura in St Andrews. Sat next to Louise Abthorpe. Sarah Maddock was also there.
20. At 5.57 a.m. I was woken by a banging on the door. A man's voice said, "Open up, Mr. Tabak, it's the police." When I opened the door, the Detective Constable standing there, Geoffrey Colvin, arrested me and drove me to Trinity Road police station. My clothes and glasses were taken away, and I was examined and photographed by the Duty Nurse, Ruth Booth-Pearson. She took a swab for DNA, and gave me some old clothes that didn't fit, and a pair of plastic glasses that were difficult to see through. I was taken to an interview room, where Detective Constable Richard Barnston introduced me to a Duty Solicitor from Crossman & Co and an Interpreter. He questioned me until tea-time. The solicitor advised me to answer "No comment" to most of the questions. She prepared a statement describing my movements on the 17 December 2010 and declaring that I did not know Joanna Yeates. After I had signed it, I was locked in a cell.
21. Another day of interrogation, this time with Detective Constable Paul Derrick. He claimed that analysis of the swab taken the day before had shown that my DNA matched a sample of DNA found on Joanna's body. I signed a statement that the solicitor drew up, challenging this analysis and the integrity of the scientist who carried it out. I was taken to the Magistrate's Court so that he could approve an application to detain me longer.
22. Another day of interrogation. The Detective stated that incriminating searches had been found on my computers, so the solicitor got me to sign a statement that I was the only one who had used the computer previously shared with Tanja. At 9.30 p.m. He charged me with the murder of Joanna Yeates and locked me in a cell.
24. At 9.00 a.m. I was handcuffed and taken again, in a van this time, to the Magistrate's Court. I was to be represented by Paul Cook QC. At 10.00 a.m. I was led into Courtroom 1, which was crowded with people, to appear before William Summers. The Public Prosecutor, Ann Reddrop, told him that I was charged with murdering Joanna Yeates between 16 and 26 December 2010. Mr. Cook stated that I would be applying for bail. I was taken in a van to Horfield Prison, where I stayed in my cell, to avoid unpleasantness. Cora and Marcel have hired a professional spokesman, Paul Vermeij, to answer the questions about me that the press have been asking them. I have spoken to Cora on the phone, but I am not allowed to talk to her substantively about the case.
25. I was taken in a van to Bristol Crown Court to appear at 10.00 a.m. before Mr Justice Colman Treacy for a bail hearing. Paul Cook QC advised me not to apply for bail. Ann Reddrop told the court that I was a person of good
character, both in England and in Holland, but that the CPS opposed bail for failing to surrender and for interfering in the course of justice. After the hearing, I was taken in a van to Gloucester prison, where I was put in a cell without a proper toilet. Paul Vermeij has told "De Telegraaf" that I have denied the charges against me, and that my family believe me to be innocent.
26. I was taken by van to Long Lartin Prison, Worcestershire, and assigned a cell with a perspex door in the health unit.
31. I was taken to the prison's TV studio to appear by video-link before Judge Treacy at Bristol Crown Court again. The Public Prosecutor, Nigel Lickley QC, told the judge that Crown would serve the case papers by 1 April 2011 at the latest, and would expect the defence case statement to be submitted by 28 April 2011. The judge told the court that a plea hearing would be held in this court on 4 May 2011. He pencilled in 4 October 2011 for the start of the trial. He told me that I would have the opportunity to speak to my lawyer, Michael Fitton QC, later this week.

So it was the second DNA swab that they took that was a supposed match...... What happened to the DNA from his Holland interview?????

Did his solicitor not argue this point?????

Is this the Police conference that was pulled ... the one showing Greg??????

When he had talked of Joanna Yeates in the past tense... There could have been many reasons for him doing so... so why pull the Conference?????

Leonora if these are indeed the diary entries of Dr Vincent Tabak... I have a question:....


--- Quote ---At Line 267 of the prosecution chart
at 15.00 pm on 21 December 2010, Tabak searched the words
‘Extradition of Dutchman’
‘Jo Yeates’
At Line 271 of the prosecution chart
Tabak searched the Dutch word
‘doodslag’ (English meaning: ‘manslaughter’)
--- End quote ---

A perfect opportunity for the Police to have in the searches the VIDEO LINK he sent Tanja.....

So where is it??????
