KATE AND GERRY MCCANN: SORRY
Wednesday March 19,2008

The Daily Express today takes the unprecedented step of making a front-page apology to Kate and Gerry McCann.
We do so because we accept that a number of articles in the newspaper have suggested that the couple caused the death of their missing daughter Madeleine and then covered it up.

We acknowledge that there is no evidence whatsoever to support this theory and that Kate and Gerry are completely innocent of any involvement in their daughter's disappearance.

We trust that the suspicion that has clouded their lives for many months will soon be lifted.

As an expression of its regret, the Daily Express has now paid a very substantial sum into the Madeleine Fund and we promise to do all in our power to help efforts to find her.

Kate and Gerry, we are truly sorry to have added to your distress.

We assure you that we hope Madeleine will one day be found alive and well and will be restored to her loving family.

DAILY EXPRESS:
MCCANNS ACCEPT £550,000 DAMAGES
Monday March 10,2008 (Jan’s note: this article was published on-line on 19-03-2008).

Have your say(2)

Kate and Gerry McCann have accepted £550,000 libel damages over allegations that they were responsible for the death of their daughter Madeleine.
The couple, who were not at London's High Court for the hearing, said they were pleased Express Newspapers had admitted the "utter falsity" of the articles.

As well as the damages, the couple also accepted a public apology.

Their solicitor-advocate, Adam Tudor, told Mr Justice Eady that from the late summer of last year until February this year, the Daily Express, the Sunday Express, the Daily Star and the Daily Star Sunday, which have a combined circulation of several million copies as well as a substantial online readership, published more than 100 articles which were seriously defamatory of the couple.

He said: "The general theme of the articles was to suggest that Mr and Mrs McCann were responsible for the death of Madeleine or that there were strong or reasonable grounds for so suspecting and that they had then disposed of her body; and that they had then conspired to cover up their actions, including by creating 'diversions' to divert the police's attention away from evidence which would expose their guilt.

"Many of these articles were published on the front pages of the newspapers and on their websites, accompanied by sensational headlines.

"In addition to the allegations referred to above, the Daily Star published further articles (under the headlines 'Maddie mum 'sold' her' and 'Maddie 'sold' by hard-up McCanns') which sought to allege that Mr and Mrs McCann had sold their daughter in order to ease their financial burdens. A further article alleged that Mr and Mrs McCann were involved in 'swinging' or wife-swapping orgies."

Mr Tudor said the all the libel damages would be donated to the fund established to assist with the search for the four-year-old, who disappeared from Praia da Luz, Portugal, in May last year.

The Daily Express and Daily Star have run prominent pieces at the top of their front pages, headlined "Kate and Gerry McCann: Sorry".

The McCanns are reserving the right to sue other papers for libel.

DAILY EXPRESS:

POLICE TO QUIZ MCCANN FRIENDS
Monday March 31,2008
Have your say(3)

Portuguese police are to visit the UK next week to re-interview the friends of Kate and Gerry McCann.

Officers are expected to arrive in Britain on April 7 but they will not interview the couple, whose four-year-old daughter Madeleine disappeared from the Portuguese resort of Praia da Luz on May 3 last year.

Instead Portuguese detectives plan to sit in while officers from Leicestershire Constabulary interview their friends.

A spokeswoman for the British force said: "Leicestershire Constabulary will be coordinating the execution of the request for mutual legal assistance made by the Portuguese authorities.

"The Portuguese authorities have asked that the contents of the request and the way it is being executed be kept confidential so as not to prejudice their ongoing investigation."

It is almost 11 months since Madeleine disappeared from the holiday resort of Praia da Luz.

Kate and Gerry, both 39, from Rothley, Leics, remain arguidos - formal suspects - in the case.

Clarence Mitchell, the McCanns' family spokesman, said: "Kate and Gerry and their friends have long expected this visit by Portuguese police officers and it comes as no surprise that some reports in the Portuguese papers in the last few days have been speculating about the arrival date.

"I am not in a position to confirm any dates or give any details about the re-interviewing of the friends and all matters will have to go to Leicestershire police.

"However, Kate and Gerry and their friends welcome the police interviews. The friends are more than happy to co-operate fully, as are Kate and Gerry, although in this case Kate and Gerry will not be interviewed. This has not been requested but Kate and Gerry would have agreed to answer any questions had the police wished to put anything to them."

Comments:-

OF COURSE THEY ARE WILLING TO HELP!!

Last time the McCanns had a chat with the Portuguese Police it appeared they couldnt get out of Portugal fast enough rather than hang around to answer anymore questions.
They even flew home by Easy Jet!!
I think it would have been more believable Mitchell if the McCann's and the so called "Tapas Nine" had gone back to Portugal voluntarily.
Have any of them gone back to Portugal to help? ...not that I am aware of...instead the PJ have to come over here.
Lets home the quetions are vigorous and finally get to the truth of what happeded

POLICE TO QUIZ MCCANN FRIENDS

I don't see the point of the questioning of the 7 as they questions have been pre-agreed with the Home Office who by the McCanns own admission they are in constant contact with.

I'LL BELIEVE IT WHEN I SEE IT!

So Clarence Mitchell says that the McCanns are willing to speak to the Portuguese Police.

Have they contacted the PJ and asked to be interviewed, I bet they haven't.

I'll believe it when I see and hear them volunteering and not just talking through Clarence.

SUNDAY EXPRESS:

Copied from post by Ines from “Express says 60 to be interviewed” thread, posted: Sat Apr 05, 2008 9:36 pm

<Quote> EXpress


Up to 60 witnesses will be questioned by police in Britain over Madeleine McCann’s disappearance.


A series of intensive interviews will start this week after a three-man team of senior Portuguese detectives fly into Leicestershire tomorrow.


The trio, led by Paulo Rebelo, the chief investigator in the case, will begin by supervising the quizzing of key witness Jane Tanner.


Ms Tanner, 36, claimed she saw a man carrying a girl from the McCanns’ holiday apartment in the Algarve at about 9.15pm.


Yet another witness says he was outside the flat in Praia da Luz at the same time but did not see her or the mystery man.


After Ms Tanner’s interview, British police, supervised by the Portuguese, will spend three days speaking to remaining members of the Tapas Seven who were dining with Madeleine’s parents when she vanished.


No lawyers will be present and friends of the group stressed they are meeting the police voluntarily. They have been warned to expect lengthy bouts of questioning.


The group were all dining with Kate and Gerry McCann on the night their daughter vanished on May 3 last year in Praia da Luz.


Ms Tanner’s partner Dr Russell O’Brien, 36, from Exeter, was away from the group tending to his sick daughter in the period when Madeleine was snatched.


Dr Matthew Oldfield, 37, a hospital consultant from London, and his wife Rachel, 36, a recruitment consultant, were also at the tapas restaurant.


David Payne, 41, a cardiovascular researcher from Leicester, was the final person, apart from the McCann family, to see Madeleine. His wife, Fiona, 34, and her mother, Diane Webster, will also be questioned by police in Leicester.


Then officers will switch their attention to three separate bands of witnesses who have been singled out by Gerry and Kate McCann as vital.


As arguidos, or official suspects, the couple have the right to demand that certain individuals be seen by police if they are believed to hold relevant information. Despite plans for the Portuguese investigators to return home on Friday, British police will mount a full-scale operation in which more than 50 more witnesses will be interviewed. These will include other guests who were staying at the resort, Ocean Club apartments staff and holidaymakers staying nearby.


Relatives of the McCanns who visited the Algarve in the weeks after she went missing are understood to be on the list, as are their current spokesman Clarence Mitchell and his predecessor Justine McGuiness.


Two sisters who were puzzled by a blond pair of men in their 30s acting strangely at the resort hours before Madeleine went missing are on the interview list.


Jayne Jensen, 54, and Annie Wiltshire, 58, said one of the men standing outside the patio doors started to walk down a flight of steps.


But when he was seen by divorced mum-of-two Annie, from Maidstone, he retraced his steps and began talking to his friend.


Yesterday the McCanns made an emotional plea to Portuguese detectives to clear them in time for the one year anniversary of their daughter’s disappearance.


Madeleine’s parents, both 39, hope the unprecedented move to question their friends in Britain will mark an end to their seven-month ordeal as suspects.


The couple are desperate to return to Praia da Luz to mark the tragic date with a renewed appeal for information which could unlock the mystery surrounding what happened.


Clarence Mitchell confirmed that Kate and Gerry want detectives to lift their arguido status and reveal any evidence they hold.


He said they will not return to the Algarve while they are still suspects.


He said: “Kate and Gerry want to return to Praia da Luz to reinvigorate our campaign to find Madeleine.”
