#Leveson #McCann #Leicestershire Constabulary - Sunday Mirror Complaint

Leicestershire Constabulary


PUBLICATION: Sunday Mirror

Leicestershire Constabulary complained that an article had quoted a ‘Leicestershire police source’ being critical of the Portuguese police (in relation to the investigation into Madeleine McCann’s disappearance) when that was not the official view of the Force.

The matter was resolved when the newspaper agreed to place a note of the complaint in its archive files, which made clear that the quoted source was not speaking on behalf of the Force."

#BBC Dirty Tricks Smear Campaign

#Libelreform : Maddie Case Leads To Divorce

Translation by Joanna Morais

 Clear to see the McCanns intent on destroying Gonçalo Amaral who themselves are in Contempt of Court in Portugal ,they have STILL not returned Amaral's books. The British media fail to mention this small fact or that ALL court fees are paid from the FUND that gullible people still believe is used to search for a missing child !

Smearing #RicardoPaiva AND Placing Hewlett Back In The Frame

Post by Rosie on Sun Feb 28, 2010 11:07 am

When Dr Isabel Duarte, Kate and Gerry McCanns' libel lawyer questioned one of Goncalo Amaral's "star" witnesses in Amaral's recent appeal against the banning of his book and this could turn into a huge diplomatic incident. Ricardo Paiva's statement went something like this:

A witness for Amaral, inspector Ricardo Paiva who worked with him and is now in charge of the case since taking over from Paulo Rebelo, who took over when Goncalo Amaral was sacked, calmly announced under cross-examination from Isabel Duarte, that Amaral's book had not prevented people from contacting the police with info because he has a fat file crammed full with sightings that people keep sending. Isabel Duarte asked to see that file and in her final speech asked about all that neglected information: "how can she be found if the police is convinced she is dead and doesn't follow up the leads"? She asked, which of course is true. However, this wasn't the most damning of Paiva's announcement, when Ms Duarte later collected this file of information, she discovered that not only was it stuffed full of photographs which bore a remarkable resemblance to Madeleine, not only was it crammed with information about sightings of Madeleine and other reports that people thought were significant enough to contact the PJ, or their local police or the McCanns investigation team, it was discovered that ALL information coming into the "investigation" which is shelved, has been shoved into this file *WITHOUT* being examined, or actioned and the file itself has been marked "Not Relevant To The Investigation", so the chances of it ever being looked at in the future would also be greatly diminished! It is an absolute astonishing admission and confirms the fears of a great many people about the fear of corruption and the level of competency concerning those charged with the investigation into Madeleine McCann's disappearance.

When the case was officially shelved it was publicly announced that if any new evidence came in, that the case would be re-opened. Since then there has been information that has come into the investigation, among the information submitted to Ricardo Paiva at the Portuguese policia judiciaria (PJ) was that from Kate and Gerry McCann's private investigators, which the McCanns state was credible and has NOT been acted upon. This also applied to the information that the Leicestershire police had submitted to the PJ, the LP being the police force local to the McCanns and in charge of any information coming into the police in the UK and have also been carrying out investigations in the UK concerning the Madeleine investigation.

All this information being sent to the PJ has been finding its way into the file of Ricardo Paiva and marked "NOT RELEVANT TO THE INVESTIGATION".

Among the information that I remember reading as being sent to the PJ, was the strange circumstances surrounding known British convicted paedophile Raymond Hewlett!

At the time there was an announcement from the PJ that said Hewlett "was not relevant to the investigation", so now we know that this was NOT even examined, what is going to be done about this man? Are the PJ going to do their job and formally request to question Hewlett or not? Why after all those years living on the Algarve, did Hewlett suddenly up sticks with his family and rush them to Germany to live? So fast that tragically his son fell from the van the family was travelling in and they did NOT notice and when they did they had to turn around and travel back to find the boy, unfortunately the poor little lad had lost his life. The Spanish authorities confiscated their "white" van because allegedly it was not road worthy and of course was a crime scene because of the terrible circumstances resulting in the boy's death.
What happened to this this van and was it the subject of DNA/forensics tests? The family had their little boy buried in an unmarked grave and then immediately carried on with their journey to Germany. Now there are many legitimate reasons for an unmarked grave and I am not going to suggest that because Hewlett is a paedophile that he has not suffered over the loss of his son, certainly his wife Mariana must have been in a terrible state of grief.
But the haste with which the family was reported to have left Spain is a bit unusual to say the least, I am sure the Spanish authorities would have helped them under their tragic circumstances and not least because the Spanish social services had already been involved with this family and wanted to check the children out, they were concerned with their education and their welfare.

Hewlett himself claimed that they were very poor living off of him selling car parts he found by the roadside! Social security handouts ? From which country ?UK And Mariana was reported to do a begging/busking act with the children sent around to collect money from tourists etc.

Then how did Hewlett suddenly find enough cash to get himself and his family across on the ferry from Tarifa in Spain to Morocco? This ferry is not cheap and would have cost upwards of around 800 euros for all the family, without allowing for food and fuel and other essentials. The family then stayed in Morocco for at least a couple of months, how did they live over there?

That trip over, the family then decide to travel to Germany, where on route they suffered the tragedy of their son being killed in a tragic road accident. The family forced to hand their transport over to the Spanish police, then paid for the funeral of their little boy and completed the rest of the journey to Germany by train. How? How did they afford this? Two adults and five children, must have been an astronomical bill, how did Hewlett find the money to pay for this? In fact how were they funding their journey to Germany in the van and buying food, water and fuel costs? How did they purchase medicines and medical care for the children when they inevitably became ill?

It is said that Hewlett had failing health, OK this is as maybe, then how did he fund his own health care costs which was said to have been given just over the Spanish and Portuguese border with Spain? Hewlett himself told reporters that the PJ had come to visit him while he was in hospital in Spain.

While in hospital in Germany, it was said that Hewlett was near death, as far as I am aware the man is still alive, still has NOT spoken to the McCanns investigators which he said to the world's press he had no problem doing. Apparently the McCanns investigators would still like to talk to Raymond Hewlett, so what is stopping him now? Presumably he is making a good recovery after receiving treatment?

Incidentally can anyone see mention in the files of this PJ visit to Hewlett in Spain concerning the Madeleine investigation? Hewlett said he gave a statement, I cannot find it, it may be there and of course I may have missed it, I would be interested in reading it though.
This is just one incident that has probably made itself into the "fat file" of Ricardo Paiva,obviously he has not acted upon and yet Hewlett may hold information which is vital to the search for Madeleine and neither the Portuguese or the British police, are doing a damned thing about it!

What is the British Home secretary Alan Johnson doing about this? He spoke to Kate and Gerry McCann recently, what actions is he going to take? Has Alan Johnson spoken to the head of the judicial police in Portugal, Jose Almeida Rodrigues? Has he spoken to Rodrigues about the "fat file" of Ricardo Paiva and about Paiva's obvious conflict of interests? How can Portugal allow Ricardo Paiva, the police chief in charge of an already controversial (shelved) investigation, to appear in court as a witness for a detective who caused all the controversy in the very first place? And because of this was sacked from the initial investigation in October 2008 after five months? Ever since Amaral got the sack he has continued to lie and cause yet more controversy by, writing libellous books, accusing the parents with no proof or evidence, and making himself personally rich to the tune of millions of euros by, using a missing child's name and on the back of her abduction by claiming her parents killed her, and concealed her body and all of this without a single scrap of evidence? Now it transpires that not only is Ricardo Paiva a close friend of the disgraced ex cop Goncalo Amaral, he also has an obvious conflict of interests, as Paiva has appeared in court to bear favourable witness to the ex PJ detective who got himself booted off of the case and since has been convicted of perverting the course of justice and perjury, concerning the torture of the mother of another missing little girl? A child who went missing just 7 miles from where Madeleine disappeared! Not only does Ricardo Paiva lay himself wide open to accusations of a conflict of interests by his direct associations with disgraced ex detective Goncalo Amaral, Ricardo Paiva himself has been caught lying under oath in a court of law, which is perjury and which is serious enough, but for an acting law enforcement officer it is outrageous! In any other country it is doubtful that Paiva would still be in his position, he should have been sacked *IMMEDIATELY* so what is Jose Almeida Rodrigues doing about this? And has the British home secretary Alan Johnson spoke to Rodrigues about this? Normally of course it would be no business of the UK, but in this case it is, especially because it directly concerns a child that was abducted from her bed in Praia da Luz Portugal. There are accusations of Kate and Gerry McCann being framed for this crime allegedly by Goncalo Amaral and now it transpires he is himself directly involved with Ricardo Paiva who is at present head of the Madeleine investigation and that Amaral has had illegal contact with a case he was sacked from in October 2008, through Ricardo Paiva.

The whole entire thing stinks of corruption and the British home secretary has an obligation to intervene on behalf of missing Madeleine McCann, a British minor, a ward of court who the state has care an control over her welfare.

Or is Johnson going to fob Mr Mrs McCann off with mediocre words about protocol, primacy and jurisdiction? As if that has anything to do with the safety and welfare of a missing child? it is a disgrace and one Gordon Brown would do well to redress. There is nothing here that cannot be sorted out with a bit of tact and diplomacy on both sides, the case should be reopened and be the subject of a complete review, carried out by cold case detectives from Scotland Yard, using the Yard's HOLMES technology and working *alongside* the Portuguese detectives. This is the most sensible thing to do and the best thing to do for Madeleine, her parents and BOTH countries, this could stop a diplomatic incident, which eventually this whole case is going to end in unless someone does something and fast!

With free movement between EU countries, we desperately need a strategy in place to deal with abductions etc, there must be legislation put in place which deals with the problems of jurisdiction, protocol and primacy, so each EU country knows exactly where they stand and what they can and cannot deal and above all, they know how to put in place an emergency strategy *IMMEDIATELY* a child goes missing. There is nothing in place like this, the Amber alert that the McCanns tried desperately to get in place, where is it? "Lost in France" European protocol and weighed down by red tape while children suffer and their parents flounder and try to cope with several country's laws and regulations?

#RicardoPaiva : McCann Smear Campaign...


In light of recent revelations that Ricardo Paiva, the police chief in charge of the Madeleine Investigation has been filing away what could turn out to be credible leads, without investigating them, I believe he has made his own position untenable, it is time for him to resign his position.

The first police coordinator Goncalo Amaral was sacked from the Madeleine investigation after five months for serious professional misconduct, he has since taken early retirement from his position in the Portuguese policia judiciaria (PJ). Ever since Amaral has had a king size chip on his shoulder the size of Gibraltar and he blames his own failings on the parents of the missing child and he bears a grudge against them and has been orchestrating a serious hate campaign against them. he has recently had his libellous book ban upheld for the 3rd time, in his book he accuses the parents of killing their own daughter and concealing her body.

Amaral stands accused of impeding, frustrating and hindering the search for missing Madeleine.

During his last appeal to have this ban lifted, Amaral called witnesses to speak for him, one of those was Ricardo Paiva, who took over the reins of the Madeleine McCann investigation from Paulo Rebelo. during cross examination Paiva admitted to the McCanns libel lawyer Dra Isabel Duarte, that he never looked at or investigated any new information or evidence or sightings of the girl when they came into the investigation. it is known that the McCanns investigators have themselves put forward what they believe to be credible leads to Ricardo Paiva. Paiva has done no more than take all this new information and file it away in a dossier marked "Not relevant To the Investigation", it was never acted upon or actioned.

This is a shocking admission. The investigation was shelved on the proviso that if any new information became available then it would be reopened.
During this time much new information has been submitted, but always the same answer, nothing credible, the investigation stays shelved!

On who's say so? Ricardo Paiva's?

It is absolutely shocking that he has been saying this while not even bothering to look at the new information, let alone action it for investigation, this is an admission of a lie, it is a shocking indictment of his duty as detective in charge of this investigation.

Ricardo Paiva has in effect kept this investigation shelved and could very well be responsible for that vital lead being missed that could have lead detectives to find Madeleine and her abductors. How can he judge what is a credible lead or not, if he is not even examining the information?

Some of us knew this was happening all along, when there were reports in the newspapers of people contacting the Portuguese police only to be sent away after being told their information was "not credible" and that they were wasting their time as the little girl was dead! Now we learn about Ricardo Paiva.

This in itself is an astonishing admission of gross dereliction of his duty, but place this together with the fact that Ricardo Paiva is a very close friend and Alli of Goncalo Amaral, the former police coordinator in charge of the Madeleine investigation before being sacked and it is shocking. But it doesn't end there, Ricardo Paiva has appeared as a witness to testify for his friend Amaral in court and claims himself that Madeleine is dead.
Paiva also testified under oath that while Goncalo Amaral was leading the investigation, they had to no time to investigate other theories as they were all fully occupied with only one theory of Amaral's and that was the parents killed Madeleine and concealed her body.
(Since leaving the police Amaral has been convicted of perverting the course of justice and perjury)

By testifying that he thinks Madeleine is dead and by appearing as a witness for Amaral and by ignoring all new reports coming into the investigation and by having such a close friendship with the disgraced former police coordinator Goncalo Amaral, Ricardo Paiva has demonstrated he has a serious conflict of interests while he is in this position and he should either resign or he should be removed from the case as soon as possible.

If Ricardo Paiva is allowed to stay in his position, then we are just seeing a repeat of what happened when Goncalo Amaral was allowed to stay in charge of the investigation, an investigation that because of his background he should not have been allowed within a mile of, let alone take charge.

Ricardo Paiva must go.

What is the new Portuguese political police police chief ... José Maria Almeida Rodrigues doing about this?

Rodrigues must act and he must act fast, a review MUST be ordered and the case re-opened there is not a moment to lose, a little girl's life is resting on this decision, a decision once again brought about by a conflict of interests, professional misconduct, incompetency and a gross dereliction of duty.

If nothing is done about this, then there is going to be a serious diplomatic incident, which we have been warning Portugal about for years.

This is NOT going to go away, the McCanns are not going to go away, we are not going to go away.

Full and far reaching review now, reopen the case, allow a cold case team from Scotland Yard using their HOLMES technology to com in and work alongside the PJ.

This is what Jose Almeida Rodrigues could order and he must do this NOW and Paiva must be removed from this investigation IMMEDIATELY.

I also hope that every newspaper picks this up and runs with this campaign, if Portugal refuses to act then pressure must be put on her until action is taken. Primacy and protocol and jurisdiction pales into insignificance against a child's life!.
