Disappearance of Madeleine McCann

1,309 posts in this topic

Der Spiegel has posted a series of articles about the Madeleine McCann suspect, including one about an online chat involving him in 2013. What he'd written to someone online had suggested that he might have had prior experience of abducting, abusing and murdering a small child. The police are apparently also investigating him for the disappearance of a 5-year-old girl from Sachsen-Anhalt in 2015.

 

It also seems, according to a report on This Morning, that the telephone records from 2007 place him on the night of Madeleine McCann's disappearance not just in Praia da Luz but near the McCanns' holiday apartment. The Portuguese police had apparently investigated him and ruled him out. Keystone Kops? I suppose only time will tell.

I notice the Telegraph is doing an access denied on stories connected to the current suspect and Germany. Try it on their front page. Same result with mobile and also with PC MS Edge

I notice that many articles are denied access, unless one subscribes to the Telegraph.

It works if you run it throught a UK VPN connection

 

As its only text, I would imagine any of the free VPN's will be enough

 

Not sure why, they want to precent non-UK people from accessing this rag

For me it is not the geographical location that is the issue. They want you to sign up (at least to a free trial) and login to be able to view the content. 

I wanted to read an article recently and had to go through the palaver of signing up to a free trial and then cancelling it a few minutes later. I could access all their site's content for a month. You don't need a VPN. ;)

Der Spiegel has found evidence of a blunder by police in Braunschweig in 2013. They had called Christian B. in for questioning with a letter telling him that he was to be questioned over the disappearance of Madeleine McCann. This could have enabled him to destroy evidence and experts are calling it a serious mistake.

Because of Germany's privacy laws.

Following reports in the British press that the German public prosecutor in Braunschweig, Hans Christian Wolters, has been saying Madeleine McCann is dead/they have evidence she is dead/some evidence she is dead/assume she's dead/have written to the McCanns to say that there is evidence she is dead, the McCanns have released a statement. It sounds as if the German public prosecutor is either putting out mixed messages or the British press is picking things up wrong (lost in translation?) or misinterpreting things (see second link below).

Kate & Gerry McCann Statement: June 16th 2020

Since the recent police appeals regarding Madeleine’s disappearance there have been many inaccurate stories reported in the media.  The widely reported news that we have a received a letter from the German authorities that states there is evidence or proof that Madeleine is dead is FALSE.  Like many unsubstantiated stories in the media, this has caused unnecessary anxiety to friends and family and once again disrupted our lives.

 

As we have stated many times before, we will not give a running commentary on the investigation- that is the job of the law enforcement agencies and we will support them in any way requested.  Furthermore, we do not have a family spokesperson nor are we actively paying any lawyers.  Any recent comments attributed in the media have not come from us unless they have been posted on our website.  If there are important developments that can be made public, they will be issued through official police channels.
 

Kate and Gerry

 

"Maddie" McCann doch nicht tot? Britische Zeitung feuert gegen Braunschweiger Ermittler


Die Staatsanwaltschaft Braunschweig sorgte in dem ungelösten Vermisstenfall am 4. Juni für einen Schock: "Wir gehen davon aus, dass das Mädchen tot ist", so Staatsanwalt Hans Christian Wolters bei einer Pressekonferenz. Die britische Zeitung "Mirror" zitierte ihn nun in einem exklusiven Interview damit, dass diese Aussage "Personal opinion and speculation" gewesen sei - Persönliche Meinung und Spekulation. Könnte Maddie also noch leben? Auf Anfrage von regionalHeute.de erklärt Wolters, diese Aussage nie getätigt zu haben.  "Ich kann ihnen leider nicht sagen, woher der 'Mirror' seine Informationen hat, aber von mir sind sie nicht", erklärt Wolters.

'Concrete evidence' that Madeleine McCann is dead, says German prosecutor

 

Quote

 

Authorities in Germany have "concrete evidence" that missing British girl Madeleine McCann is dead, Brunswick prosecutor Hans Christian Wolters told AFP Wednesday. "It is concrete evidence, facts that we have, not mere indications," Wolters said, adding that he was unable to disclose exact information. "We have no forensic evidence of Madeleine's death, such as a corpse," he added.

 

 

By saying "not mere indications" I assume he's referring to "Indizien" or circumstantial evidence and saying that they have more evidence than that.
