Dear Trial for the McCanns Petition Supporters,

Once again thank you for your signature and support. This year we have seen a lot of events regarding this unsolved case, yet none of those highly mediatised stunts have brought the investigation any closer to the truth for Child Madeleine. Despite all the attempts by New Scotland Yard to absolutely want the public to think that eventually, there would have been an abduction, which the McCanns themselves have also tried to drill into our heads for seven years, I see that this case is still not treated under normal standards, and some people do, definitely, want Justice to be avoided. I call this ABUSE.
So please keep reading about the case, get updated whenever there is new "info", join the facebook groups and the forums, watch those videos by Hideho and Richard Hall, to name only two excellent authors among so many others, read those blogs and those books, and, very importantly, the Police Files (PJ Files).
And please keep supporting this Petition, which, had it been posted or shared by any "celebrity", would now be signed by millions. But as I am no ''super hero celebrity'', all I can do is asking you to please share this link and promote it any way you can:
You may also start your own to ask for the same thing: normality, that is that Madeleine's parents would be tried for their deeds: leaving their young children alone to fend for themselves, loosing one as a consequence, lying to the media, insulting a Police Officer, refusing to comply to the Reconstruction of the scenes with the police and, let's call a cat a cat, not being very clear as to their "fund" and its use. I am sick and tired to have to say once again that had Maddy's parents been any couple without the connections and protection which those two have enjoyed, they would of course now be behind bars and with their other children taken into care.

The Truth Seeker's Guide: BURIED BY MAINSTREAM MEDIA - The True Story of Mad...

The Truth Seeker's Guide: BURIED BY MAINSTREAM MEDIA - The True Story of Mad...: Richard D. Hall has recently completed his latest UK tour and one of the subjects covered in these talks is the case of Madeleine McCann....

 DVD series "BURIED BY MAINSTREAM MEDIA" by Richard Hall : "The True Story Of Madeleine McCann"    - If you are new to this case or want to know more, I recommend you may start by watching this series of 4 great films (nothing but verified facts).


These films have been produced by film maker and engineer Richard D. Hall. Richard has been presenting a TV programme on SKY channel 192 for the last 4 years called RICHPLANET TV. The programme investigates and reports on subjects which are suppressed or not covered correctly in mainstream media. In March 2014 Richard decided that the Madeleine McCann "incident" needed to be covered in more depth than has been presented on mainstream TV and newspapers. In March 2014 he travelled to Praia Da Luz to embark on this project. This website has been set up so people can find out the facts about the Madeleine McCann story. You can watch more programmes made by Richard D. Hall covering many different subjects from this link.

The Madeleine McCann disappearance has become one of the most enduring mysteries of our time. It has generated thousands of front page headlines in the UK press. Despite the unprecedented coverage, few people have any detailed understanding of the circumstantial and physical evidence of the case. The mainstream media has been used to create diversion and confusion over what really happened, rather than inform their readers about the facts.

The first film in this series, entitled “The Initial Storm” examines in a level of detail never described before in any TV documentary, the evidence of the first night when Madeleine is alleged to have disappeared. The second film, “Dogs Don’t Lie”, reports on the compelling findings of one of the worlds top sniffer dog handlers, Martin Grime, whose two dogs searched for scent at key locations in Praia Da Luz. The third film exposes the so called private investigations instigated by the McCanns, details of which have never been aired on TV before. We reveal evidence and detailed testimony about the government agencies who were claiming to be searching for Madeleine or helping the McCanns, but was this really their agenda? Our four documentaries represent the most detailed film based analysis of the Madeleine McCann story, leaving the viewer with an understanding of the comprehensive establishment led cover up, and offer suggestions as to what all the evidence really points to.")

May Justice Be With You Mr Amaral!

Without making a long speech, I will post this photo which I have seen on social sites, to reflect my and many other Truth-seekers' feelings about the important day in Court tomorrow, regarding the (in)famous "Libel" Trial, or in our views, the NON- libel trial.

If there is any justice left in Portugal, you will win this Mr Amaral.

Madeleine McCann's parents vow not to return to Portugal unless new search finds daughter's DNA 

Blog photo, pinched from a forum

Kate and Gerry McCann have “no intention” of being in Portugal’s Praia da Luz while forensic archaeologists and sniffer dogs scour the area

"Not going back: The McCanns will avoid the grim task" (did they mean "MASK"?)

"The parents of Madeleine McCann will not return to the resort where they last saw their daughter next week when British police will start digging for clues."
However, Mrs Healy, the mother, claims she goes back around twice a year to be "closer" to Maddy... Mmh... Well well well Mrs Plod, what have we got here?
"The significant new ground searches could begin as early as Monday, according to Portuguese sources.
But Kate and Gerry McCann have “no intention” of being in Portugal’s Praia da Luz while the grim task is being undertaken, a close pal revealed yesterday." [Yeah let's recap the other article going around these days: 

"A UK crack team – believed to include a forensic archaeologist, sniffer dogs and ground penetrating radar - will scour an area yards from the family’s flat in Praia da Luz.
Scotland Yard are focussing on two more sites close by as they prepare for an operation lasting between four and six days.
Portuguese officers will supervise the work and retain overall management of the search.

MDMThe beach in Praia da Luz.
New search: Detectives will scour the beach in Praia da Luz

But Kate and Gerry McCann have decided to stay away, a close pal has revealed.
The friend said: “They welcome the new phase of the investigation and hope it may lead them a step closer to finding out what happened to their daughter. They will be kept informed by Scotland Yard of any developments but they have no intention of going there. It is the last place they would want to be while digging takes place.
“It will be a hugely emotional time for Madeleine’s parents but it is a scenario they know needs to happen. They will only go to Portugal, God forbid, if any remains matching her DNA were found.”

PAKate and Gerry McCann.
" Hope: Gerry and Kate McCann are praying for a happy outcome "--> HAVE YOU READ THIS ONE??!! 



Former GP Kate and heart doctor Gerry, both 45, believe Maddie – who vanished seven years ago and would now be aged 11 – could still be alive. Gerry recently told supporters in his home village of Rothley, Leics, that they had been buoyed up by the Met Police investigation.
During a prayer gathering for his daughter he said: “They are going back out to Portugal very soon. They are chipping away and there is new evidence. We are going to continue hoping we get a happy outcome – and one day we will know what’s happening.”
Kate added: “We are still battling, still hoping, still searching for Madeleine.”??!! REALLY KATE? That's new! Hope you get successful, more than on the 3rd May 2007 night! Must have been exhausting going down those patio stairs and back up.

PAMaddie McCann
Missing: Madeleine McCann vanished seven years ago and still hasn't been found Well no, but BODY FLUID, BLOOD, DNA and CADAVER ODOUR WERE! Even in the flowerbed outside the flat, the rented car, Mummy's clothes and of course high up on the curtains.

And why is this pic SO airbrushed now? Can't see the marks anymore! Is this Madeleine at her "progression age" this year?

It comes less than a week after Scotland Yard chiefs said the search for Madeleine would enter a “substantial” new phase in the coming weeks.
Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley confirmed: “There is going to be a substantial phase of operational activity involving Portuguese police with British police in support.
“In a major investigation with multiple lines of inquiry and hypotheses, you have to systematically work through them all.
“This is a phase of activity based on those principles.”
Search warrants permitting work to take place on the privately-owned land had already been issued, it has been reported.
One plot is thought to be fenced-off waste land a two minute walk from Madeleine’s apartment which police hired a Portuguese air force helicopter to fly over earlier this month so they could take pictures. Diggers and other equipment are expected to be hired locally by the Met.

No stone unturned: Diggers are set to be hired in the search of Praia da Luz

Scotland Yard have sent formal requests to search two other plots of land - making a total of five - but the letters have not yet reached police in the Algarve capital Faro.
The “substantial” work Met Police have referred to is also expected to include interviews with new suspects identified by Operation Grange officers heading a British probe into Madeleine’s disappearance.
Several are understood to be ex-Ocean Club employees. The Yard has not ruled out the possibility Madeleine is still alive, but has prompted speculation with its dig requests that they now believe the youngster was kidnapped and her body dumped near her holiday resort.
They are linking 18 incidents when a male intruder broke into British families’ holiday villas between 2004 and 2010 and sexually assaulted nine girls with three near-misses.
One of the victims, a ten-year-old girl, was assaulted in Praia da Luz two years before Madeleine vanished from the resort.
Portuguese police heading a separate investigation into Madeleiene’s disappearance have not ruled out the involvement of a former Ocean Club worker who died in a tractor accident in 2009. Yes. He is dubbed "tractorman".
Euclides Monteiro’s widow Luisa Rodrigues has insisted her recovering drug addict partner, a convicted burglar, had nothing to do with Madeleene’s disappearance and was cleared of any involvement in the sex attacks after police questioning the year before he died.
Praia da Luz parish council leader Victor Mata has attacked the police excavations plans.
Claiming locals were “fed up with the Maddie case” and most “didn’t care anymore”, he told a Portuguese paper soon after the first reports of the dig plans emerged: “It’s bad for tourism. It’s beggars belief they’re preparing to open up holes here a month before summer.”
The McCann’s spokesman Clarence Mitchell yesterday refused to comment on the forthcoming police activity, saying: “I cannot and will not discuss Operation Grange.” OH PINKY, DARLING.

Cannot be more explicit than this, for a change! DIGGING FOR MADDY'S BODY!

Police prepare to dig for Madeleine McCann's body

Incredible "news"... (as NOT credible) but... AMAZING FACTS! MCCANNS HID PIECES OF FILES FOR YEARS!

Let's start with Pinky...

The Pink News always come right on time to counteract important FACTS that could well turn the nations against some "responsible, innocent parents".

Regardless of that PR stunt garbage of dead abductors stories, we are sending our respects to this grieving Family in Portugal and, gladly we have a myriad of fresh news and FACTS to look at these days:



  • Jane TANNER's "abductor" that has FINALLY, OFFICIALLY exploded in thin air, never to return (and that is ONE punch in the face of ALL these people who were calling us "fantasists" (EH MISS TANNER??!! AH AH!) or "conspiracy theorists", "trolls", "paedos", "liars", "armchair detectives", etc., etc.
  • And, OH, AND, I am SO excited!!! Listen to this one: the McCanns have, reportedly, HIDDEN vital pieces of the files found by their own Private Detectives, for 5 years! Yes! Apparently, according to this paper, they would even have intimidated them, forcing them to "keep QUIET" about this!! Why? Well, to me it is simple. Martin Smith saw a man carrying a child like Madeleine at ten to ten on the 3rd May 2007. As he saw Gerry McCann stepping out of the plane in England, on the news on that day of September 07, he "tilted" and... RECOGNISED him, quite positively, as THIS man. And this is what the McCanns have tried to shush: THAT E-FIT that looks like Gerry McCann! E-FIT that Gerald did NOT wanted you to SEE for FIVE YEARS!:

(well, all is MY opinion and I find this pretty logical, I will keep you posted regarding "further developments"!! OR feel free as always to post more info, opinion you voice or find, and links. And as always, don't forget to sign or Share our Petition to spread the idea of Normal Justice!)



Madeleine clues hidden for 5 years

The new prime suspect was first singled out by detectives in 2008. Their findings were suppressed. Insight reports

THE critical new evidence at the centre of Scotland Yard’s search for Madeleine McCann was kept secret for five years after it was presented to her parents by ex-MI5 investigators.

The evidence was in fact taken from an intelligence report produced for Gerry and Kate McCann by a firm of former spies in 2008.

It contained crucial E-Fits of a man seen carrying a child on the night of Madeleine’s disappearance, which have only this month become public after he was identified as the prime suspect by Scotland Yard.

A team of hand-picked former MI5 agents had been hired by the McCanns to chase a much-needed breakthrough in the search for their missing daughter Madeleine.

10 months after the three-year-old had disappeared from the Portuguese resort of Praia da Luz, and the McCanns were beginning to despair over the handling of the local police investigation. They were relying on the new team to bring fresh hope.

But within months the relationship had soured. A report produced by the investigators was deemed “hypercritical” of the McCanns and their friends, and the authors were threatened with legal action if it was made public. Its contents remained secret until Scotland Yard detectives conducting a fresh review of the case contacted the authors and asked for a copy.

They found that it contained new evidence about a key suspect seen carrying a child away from the McCanns’ holiday apartment on the night Madeleine disappeared.

This sighting is now considered the main lead in the investigation and E-Fits of the suspect, taken from the report, were the centrepiece of a Crimewatch appeal that attracted more than 2,400 calls from the public this month.

One of the investigators whose work was sidelined said last week he was “utterly stunned” when he watched the programme and saw the evidence his team had passed to the McCanns five years ago presented as a breakthrough.

The team of investigators from the security firm Oakley International were hired by the McCanns’ Find Madeleine fund, which bankrolled private investigations into the girl’s disappearance. They were led by Henri Exton, MI5’s former undercover operations chief.

Their report, seen by The Sunday Times, focused on a sighting by an Irish family of a man carrying a child at about 10pm on May 3, 2007, when Madeleine went missing.

An earlier sighting by one of the McCanns’ friends was dismissed as less credible after “serious inconsistencies” were found in her evidence. The report also raised questions about “anomalies” in the statements given by the McCanns and their friends.

Exton confirmed last week that the fund had silenced his investigators for years after they handed over their controversial findings. He said: “A letter came from their lawyers binding us to the confidentiality of the report.”

He claimed the legal threat had prevented him from handing over the report to Scotland Yard’s fresh investigation, until detectives had obtained written permission from the fund.

A source close to the fund said the report was considered “hypercritical of the people involved” and “would have been completely distracting” if it became public.

Kate and Gerry McCann: now officially not suspects, say the Portuguese authoritiesKate and Gerry McCann: now officially not suspects, say the Portuguese authorities (Adrian Sheratt) Oakley’s six-month investigation included placing undercover agents inside the Ocean Club where the family stayed, lie detector tests, covert surveillance and a forensic re-examination of all existing evidence.

It was immediately clear that two sightings of vital importance had been reported to the police. Two men were seen carrying children near the apartments between 9pm, when Madeleine was last seen by Gerry, and 10pm, when Kate discovered her missing.

The first man was seen at 9.15pm by Jane Tanner, a friend of the McCanns, who had been dining with them at the tapas bar in the resort. She saw a man carrying a girl just yards from the apartment as she went to check on her children.

The second sighting was by Martin Smith and his family from Ireland, who saw a man carrying a child near the apartment just before 10pm.

The earlier Tanner sighting had always been treated as the most significant, but the Oakley team controversially poured cold water on her account.

Instead, they focused on the Smith sighting, travelling to Ireland to interview the family and produce E-Fits of the man they saw. Their report said the Smiths were “helpful and sincere” and concluded: “The Smith sighting is credible evidence of a sighting of Maddie and more credible than Jane Tanner’s sighting”. The evidence had been “neglected for too long” and an “overemphasis placed on Tanner”.

The new focus shifted the believed timeline of the abduction back by 45 minutes.

The pictures of a man who may have taken Madeleine were drawn up in 2008The pictures of a man who may have taken Madeleine were drawn up in 2008 (Adrian Sheratt) The report, delivered to the McCanns in November 2008, recommended that the revised timeline should be the basis for future investigations and that the Smith E-Fits should be released without delay.

The potential abductor seen by the Smiths is now the prime suspect in Scotland Yard’s investigation, after detectives established that the man seen earlier by Tanner was almost certainly a father carrying his child home from a nearby night creche. The Smith E-Fits were the centrepiece of the Crimewatch appeal.

One of the Oakley investigators said last week: “I was absolutely stunned when I watched the programme . . . It most certainly wasn’t a new timeline and it certainly isn’t a new revelation. It is absolute nonsense to suggest either of those things . . . And those E-Fits you saw on Crimewatch are ours,” he said.

The detailed images of the face of the man seen by the Smith family were never released by the McCanns. But an artist’s impression of the man seen earlier by Tanner was widely promoted, even though the face had to be left blank because she had only seen him fleetingly and from a distance.

Various others images of lone men spotted hanging around the resort at other times were also released.

Nor were the Smith E-Fits included in Kate McCann’s 2011 book, Madeleine, which contained a whole section on eight “key sightings” and identified those of the Smiths and Tanner as most “crucial”. Descriptions of all seven other sightings were accompanied by an E-Fit or artist’s impression. The Smiths’ were the only exception. So why was such a “crucial” piece of evidence kept under lock and key?

The relationship between the fund and Oakley was already souring by the time the report was submitted — and its findings could only have made matters worse.

As well as questioning parts of the McCanns’ evidence, it contained sensitive information about Madeleine’s sleeping patterns and raised the highly sensitive possibility that she could have died in an accident after leaving the apartment herself from one of two unsecured doors.

There was also an uncomfortable complication with Smith’s account. He had originally told the police that he had “recognised something” about the way Gerry McCann carried one of his children which reminded him of the man he had seen in Praia da Luz.

Smith has since stressed that he does not believe the man he saw was Gerry, and Scotland Yard do not consider this a possibility. Last week the McCanns were told officially by the Portuguese authorities that they are not suspects.

The McCanns were also understandably wary of Oakley after allegations that the chairman, Kevin Halligen, failed to pass on money paid by the fund to Exton’s team. Halligen denies this. He was later convicted of fraud in an unrelated case in the US.

The McCann fund source said the Oakley report was passed on to new private investigators after the contract ended, but that the firm’s work was considered “contaminated” by the financial dispute.

He said the fund wanted to continue to pursue information about the man seen by Tanner, and it would have been too expensive to investigate both sightings in full — so the Smith E-Fits were not publicised. It was also considered necessary to threaten legal action against the authors.

“[The report] was hypercritical of the people involved . . . It just wouldn’t be conducive to the investigation to have that report publicly declared because . . . the newspapers would have been all over it. And it would have been completely distracting,” said the source.

A statement released by the Find Madeleine fund said that “all information privately gathered during the search for Madeleine has been fully acted upon where necessary” and had been passed to Scotland Yard.

It continued: “Throughout the investigation, the Find Madeleine fund’s sole priority has been, and remains, to find Madeleine and bring her home as swiftly as possible.”

"Why were Maddie suspect E-fits kept SECRET for five years?"

Indeed... WHY?


A forum Member has made this association, in the light of the events:

For once, regarding the reporting of this case by the Daily Mail, I will agree with their title. I disagree, however, about their attempt to provide an "explanation" as to "why" (as we will see further) as I find their personal views really unprofessional - they are a "mainstream media", not a private blog of fresh amateurs. Anyway, here is the full copy of the article:

"Why were Maddie suspect E-fits kept SECRET for five years? Images and evidence of sighting uncovered by private detectives were suppressed

  • Images of man seen carrying child through Praia da Luz on the night of Madeleine's disappearance were unveiled on Crimewatch two weeks ago
  • Based on evidence from Irish holidaymaker Martin Smith and his family
  • Emerged yesterday that E-fits were contained in files from five years ago
  • Produced by private investigators hired by the McCanns

Under wraps: This is one of the E-fits drawn up by the investigators
Under wraps: This is one of the E-fits drawn up by the investigators

"The E-fits of a ‘new’ suspect for Madeleine McCann’s disappearance were drawn up five years ago – and suppressed.
Images of a man seen carrying a child through Praia da Luz at 10pm on the night the then three-year-old vanished were unveiled on BBC1’s Crimewatch two weeks ago.
They are based on evidence from Irish holidaymaker Martin Smith and his family. At the same time, the British police team behind a new investigation revealed they had discounted a 9.15pm sighting of a man with a child by Jane Tanner, a friend holidaying with parents Gerry and Kate McCann and their three children.
It meant there was a new ‘timeline’ of Madeleine’s presumed abduction. Yet it emerged yesterday that the recently released E-fits were in fact contained in files produced five years ago by private investigators hired by the McCanns. Similarly, those private detectives had questioned the Tanner sighting and the timings associated with it.
But the E-fits were kept private, and the questioning of the Tanner sighting and related timeline were kept quiet. One detective said he was ‘utterly stunned’ to see his five-year-old dossier suddenly presented as new on TV.
The investigator told a Sunday newspaper: ‘I was absolutely stunned when I watched the programme... it most certainly wasn’t a new timeline and it certainly isn’t a new revelation. It is absolute nonsense to suggest either of those things... and those E-fits you saw on Crimewatch are ours.’
The McCanns are now fully behind the fresh police drive and release of the E-fits – but ago they were reluctfive years ant to issue them, possibly in part because witness Mr Smith’s account seemed inconsistent and unreliable. " [My note: I disagree, in fact it seems that the REAL reason is enunciated here in the following statement (which the Daily Mail has cleverly separated with a bullet pointed list of other articles, lol:]

So, REAL REASON, in my opinion: "Months after the disappearance and after seeing Gerry McCann on TV, Mr Smith told police that he thought the man he saw carrying a girl around Madeleine’s age at the very time she went missing reminded him of Gerry McCann himself."Read more:
Mr Smith has reportedly since withdrawn that claim – just as Portuguese police have officially told the McCanns they are no longer suspects for their daughter’s disappearance.
The couple have also won libel damages for false suggestions that they were in any way involved.

Numerous witnesses have also given statements making clear that Mr McCann was at his holiday complex at the moment the sighting occurred – which was at the very time when he and his wife started calling for help looking for Maddie.
Madeleine McCann went missing in Praia da Luz in May 2007

But shortly after Mr Smith told police Mr McCann may have been the man he had seen carrying a little girl, a friend of the McCanns said: ‘Look at the facts. This man sees an individual carrying a child on the night Maddie vanished.
‘He waits 13 days to report this to the police, going back to Ireland  in the meantime. At this stage he admits he has no idea who the man is. Almost four months go by before, after seeing him on TV, he feels that it could be Gerry.
‘The truth is that this is part of  the victimisation of Gerry and Kate which has gone on from the very beginning by the Portuguese.’ 

Portuguese police have officially told Kate and Gerry McCann they are no longer suspects for the disappearance
Portuguese police have officially told Kate and Gerry McCann they are no longer suspects for the disappearance
In 2008, the McCanns used money from their charity fund  [NO! No, NO and NO! UNPROFESSIONAL once again, Daily Mail!!! THE FUND HAS NEVER BEEN A CHARITY! It is a BUSINESS, an UnLtd Company!!!! Do you research! Correctly!] to hire investigators from a firm called Oakley International, led by  former MI5 surveillance officer Henri Exton, to look into the mystery – and they focused on the Smith sighting.
They produced a dossier and called for the E-fits to be published. They also suggested Madeleine could have died after wandering off.
The McCanns, who became embroiled in an unconnected financial dispute with Oakley International at around the time they received the dossier, responded by warning the detectives of legal action if they publicised their report.
A source close to the fund said the report would have been ‘completely distracting’ if it had become public."

[and here is the further LOL bit:]
