The Infamous 48 Questions

Post by Rosie on Sun Apr 05, 2009 3:45 am

The Judiciária's 48 questions that the PJ say Kate did not answer

1 On the 3rd of May 2007, at around 10 p.m., when you entered the apartment, what did you see, what did you do, where did you search, what did you handle?

2 Did you search in the couple's bedroom closet? (said she would not reply)

3 (Two photographs of her bedroom's closet are exhibited) Can you describe its contents?

4 Why are the curtains in front of the side window, behind the sofa (photograph is exhibited) ruffled? Did someone pass behind that sofa?

5 How long did the search that you made in the apartment after detecting the disappearance of your daughter Madeleine take?

6 Why did you say straight away that Madeleine had been abducted?

7 Presuming that Madeleine had been abducted, why did you leave the twins alone at home while you went to the Tapas to raise the alarm? Even because the supposed abductor could still be inside the apartment.

8 Why didn't you ask the twins at that moment what had happened to their sister, or why didn't you ask them at a later point in time?

9 When you raised the alarm at the Tapas, what exactly did you say and what were the words?

10 What happened after you raised the alarm at the Tapas?

11 Why did you go to warn your friends instead of calling out from the balcony?

12 Who contacted the authorities?

13 Who participated in the searches?

14 Did anyone outside of the group learn about Maddie's disappearance during the following minutes?

15 Did any neighbour offer you help after the disappearance?

16 What does the expression "we let her down" mean?

17 Did Jane mention to you that she had seen a man with a child that night?

18 How were the authorities contacted and which police force was called?

19 During the searches, and already with the police present, in what locations was Maddie searched for, how and in what manner?

20 Why didn't the twins wake up during that search, or when they went to the upper floor?

21 Who did you call after the facts?

22 Did you call SKY News?

23 Did you know about the danger of calling the media, because that could influence the abductor?

24 Did you request the presence of a priest?

25 How was Madeleine's face publicised, with a photograph, or other media?

26 Is it true that during the search you remained seated on Maddie's bed without moving?

27 How did you behave that evening?

28 Did you manage to sleep?

29 Before the trip to Portugal, did you comment on a bad feeling or a bad premonition?

30 What was Madeleine's behaviour?

31 Did Maddie suffer of any disease or did she take any kind of medication?

32 What was the relationship like between Madeleine and her siblings?

33 What was the relationship like between Madeleine and her siblings, her friends and her colleagues at school?

34 Concerning your professional life, in how many and in which hospitals have you worked?

35 What is your medical specialty?

36 Did you work by shifts, in emergency rooms or in other departments?

37 Did you work on a daily basis?

38 Did you stop working at a certain point in time? Why?

39 Do your twin children have difficulty in falling asleep, are they unruly and does that upset you?

40 Is it true that at certain times you were desperate over your children's attitude and that left you upset?

41 Is it true that in England you considered the possibility of handing over Madeleine's guardianship to a relative?

42 In England, did you give your children medication? What type of medication?

43 Within the process, you were shown films of cynotechnical inspection of forensic character, where the dogs can be seen marking indications of human cadaver odour and equally human blood traces, and only of human origin, as well as all the comments that were made by the responsible expert. After the visualisation, and after cadaver odour was signalled in your bedroom next to the wardrobe and behind the sofa that was pushed against the living room window, you said that you could not explain anything apart from what you had already said?

44 You said that you could not explain anything apart from what you had already said, concerning the marking of human blood behind the sofa by the detection dog?

45 You said that you could not explain anything apart from what you had already said, concerning the marking of cadaver odour in the boot of the vehicle that you rented a month after the disappearance?

46 You said that you could not explain anything apart from what you had already said, concerning the marking of human blood in the boot of the vehicle?

47 You said that you could not explain anything apart from what you had already said, upon being confronted with the result of the collection of Maddie's DNA, which was analysed by a British lab, behind the sofa and inside the vehicle's boot?

48 Did you have any responsibility or intervention in the disappearance of your daughter?

The question that she answered

Are you aware of the fact that by not answering these questions you may compromise the investigation, which is trying to find out what happened to your daughter? She said "Yes, if the investigation thinks so".

What Really Happened When Kate Was Asked 'Those' Questions?



By VERONICA LORRAINE
in Praia da Luz

Published: 04 Aug 2008

KATE McCann refused to answer 48 questions when probed by Portuguese cops over her missing daughter Madeleine, it was revealed yesterday.

The devastated mum replied to some at the start of the interview on September 7 last year.

But she exercised her rights and fell silent once she was made an “arguido” in the case, leaked police files show.

Two weeks ago Kate and her husband Gerry, both 40, of Rothley, Leics, were officially cleared of any involvement in Maddie’s disappearance.

Details of the Portuguese police probe are due to be opened to the public today.

The police files from the exhaustive inquiry, which lasted more than 14 months, are being made available to journalists after the shelving of the case a fortnight ago.

Included in the mammoth dossier - said to run to 20,000 pages - are witness statements, transcripts of interviews with the McCanns and details of the lines of inquiry detectives pursued.

Maddie vanished in May 2007, days before her fourth birthday.

She had been left alone with her twin siblings at a holiday apartment in Praia da Luz.

Yesterday Portuguese newspaper Correio de Manhas said Kate was quizzed over why she said from the start Maddie had been abducted.

Cops also asked whether she gave the children medication and if it was true that she sometimes despaired of their behaviour and had considered handing custody of Maddie to a relative.

McCann family spokesman Clarence Mitchell said last night: “Kate was well within her rights not to answer if she didn’t want to.”


http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/maddie/article1508469.ece


Let's deal with this question, because I have seen this twisted and Goncalo Amaral himself appears to infer that Calpol is some kind of sedative, that the McCanns gave their children and because of this Madeleine somehow had an accident, fell, hit her head and died!


  • First and foremost Calpol is NOT a sedative
  • Calpol does NOT have any sedative properties.
  • Calpol is simply liquid paracetamol, made especially for infants and young children
  • Calpol works by reducing fever
  • Reducing pain
  • In a fractious sick, tired child, if both these symptoms are controlled, it is likely as a direct result of the symptoms being alleviated, that a tired child will then sleep.
  • This does NOT happen because Calpol has any sedative properties.
  • The dosage on the bottle is a guideline for otherwise fit, healthy babies and children
  • If an overdose is administered, then providing the child receives the antidote treatment (according to how much the child has overdosed on), then there is unlikely to be any lasting ill effects
  • Guidelines for administering antidote is approximately up to 12 hours after ingestion. (Some cases antidote is unnecessary)
  • Calpol (liquid paracetamol suspension) does not prove fatal immediately, or even 12 hours after ingestion.
  • Paracetamol, liquid or otherwise, is only fatal after a length of time
  • Paracetamol harms by having a toxic effect on the liver
  • paracetamol does not sedate and kill you.

So even [IF] Madeleine was either given an overdose or simply drank the Calpol herself, it would have done nothing to her immediately, it would have taken many days to do this and Madeleine appeared to be a healthy, happy, well little girl.
Her parents, both highly trained doctors, would be highly unlikely to give their child an accidental overdose of paracetamol, something like a whole bottle! Madeleine may have drank this, but it is unlikely, Madeleine has been reported to be a very bright articulate little girl, so she would have more than likely been instructed about touching and taking such things and she would have heeded those warnings, children of 4 can be very literal. However, even if she did not, a whole bottle of liquid paracetamol would probably not be fatal.

So when Goncalo Amaral speaks about Madeleine dropping down after being sedated, inferring that this was paracetamol, then as usual he is talking out of his rather large rear orifice!

Yet another myth perpetrated completely without foundation!

Perhaps when the fatwah one writes his next book to top up his piggy bank, he may care to correct his misleading statements?

Rosie

Much was made of a new variety of Calpol which came out, is something like Night Calpol (not sure because we dont have it over here) on the 3A's.

But it was proven from the Calpol web site, that the new one with the sedative was not available for many months after Madeleine disappeared. It quite simply was not available. Although it may have been available to a doctor as a sample. This would have been very very easy for the PJ to prove by contacting the drug company.

It would seem no attempt was made to prove that it wasnt Calpol but the new one with the sedative, so that would prove to me that it was the plain old Calpol, with no sedative properties at all.

Another thing. If it was suspected that the children were sedated, then a court ordered drug test should have taken place on the twins.

It is beyond comprehension that accusations fly around, which could quite easily and legally have been examined and either proved or discarded had the investigation been run properly. A drug test should have been done regardless, because the abductor may have drugged all 3 children, and this should have been investigated.

Post by Cath on Wed May 06, 2009 11:04 am

I agree Dianeh. And you know what makes it even more sickening?
Paiva writing in his report :
Strangely, Kate also made several requests, three months after the disappearance of Madeleine, that the police should take blood, hair and nail tests of Madeleine’s twin siblings, because, as she said, she remembered that on the day of Madeleine’s disappearance, in spite of all the commotion and noise made by the authorities and other persons who were looking for Madeleine in apartment 5ª of the OC, the twins never woke up, having been transported to another apartment, they remained asleep, due to which she now presumes that they were under the effect of some sedative drug that a presumed abductor had administered to the three children in order to be able to abduct Madeleine, a situation which Kate refers to being possible according to what she read in a criminal investigation manual given to her by the British authorities, that would have been the procedure of the abductor in the real case involving abduction, rape and murder of the girl.


Kate and Gerry are parents and were panicking, non-functioning parents when Madeleine disappeared. They didn't think of that possibility until they read about it. In hindsight they thought it was strange the twins didn't wake up. Now this inspector makes it look suspicious. (And Amoral's theory is based on the assumption the parents drugged their children to sleep).

WHY on earth didn't the PJ think of checking the twins asap?
They weren't emotionally involved, they are supposed to be the professionals, they aren't worried like hell about the fate of their daughter.

I just cant believe that the PJ as a whole are so incompetent. But I dont rule out that certain individuals are that incompetent. Or perhaps there were other reasons why no tests were taken.

Do you remember one of the GNR officers that was present the night that Madeleine disappeared, saying that he was surprised that the apartment was sealed, but since it was under the jurisdiction of the PJ, they made no comment etc? It seems that simple processes were not followed, and it was noticed by the GNR. Later we find that other simple things were not done (these are all listed in other places on this forum), including these tests. And then Amaral uses the fact that tests are not done against the parents.

Yet Amaral is the ONLY person responsible for these tests not being done. Was he just incompetent or did he deliberately not apply for such tests (either directly to the McCanns or through the prosecutor) for reasons that we do not currently know? These tests could have been taken even months later, even if he overlooked it at the start of the investigation. WHY WERE THEY NOT DONE? Is it possible that not having the facts (especially if they prove no drugs used) was more desirable than having the truth and the facts? smellarat

Hi bluj1515

Post by Rosie on Sun Jul 05, 2009 1:31 am

A big welcome to the forum. Welcome

I totally agree with you regarding these questions, they were never designed to try and help find Madeleine (which should have been the main aim) they were designed purely to try and pin the blame on the McCanns for Madeleine's disappearance (especially on Kate).
Words do not come anywhere near how beneath contempt that I actually hold disgraced former PJ detective Goncalo Amaral. Who has now been convicted of lying, perjury etc.

Amaral, has never spoken to the McCanns, has never met them, in fact Kate and Gerry have never been interviewed by Goncalo Amaral or when Amaral got the sack, his successor Paulo Rebelo.
Paulo Rebelo came to this country to see the head of the Birmingham Forensic Science Lab and he made no attempt to contact the McCanns, despite the fact that Kate had written to him a few times asking for information about her daughter and how the investigation was going - nothing. To me this is not only ignorant, it is just plain cruel and unnecessary.
When Rebelo took over, I looked at his profile I allowed myself a glimmer of hope that at last this man who seemed incorruptible, was going to take charge and actually restart the stalled investigation into Madeleine's disappearance. I really thought he was going to do the right thing by Madeleine and her beleaguered parents.

Instead all we go was more of the same, it turns out that Rebelo was just a fall guy, a 'yes man', put in charge of the investigation to ensure that the McCanns were kept arguido and arguida for as long as possible, I felt let down and bitterly disappointed in that man, so if I felt that then what on earth must it have felt like for Madeleine, Kate and Gerry and their family and friends?

In my opinion there are those that suspect that a little more than meets the public eye went on behind the scenes of this investigation and rather than have an investigation proceeding that could have found Madeleine and those responsible, to save the Portuguese tourist industry and national pride, the investigation was ended and placed on the shelf with a very vague promise that if new information came to light it would be re-opened.

That too has turned into another farce.

There has been many things that would have reopened this investigation, but it has been kept firmly closed.

Indeed you have to ask, how would they know if something had come along which may open the investigation, if the police officers taking information coming in from the public simply refuse to log it, telling the informants "not to worry about it and waste their time because the little girl is dead" They may miss vital information and as this looks like what has been happening all the way along the line, the chances are that they have actually missed that vital piece of info that may have helped fine Madeleine and her abductors.

This is why we on this forum and every other *like minded* forum are important, we have to help try and keep Madeleine's profile raised and try at least to point to the huge amount of conjecture and utter lies that have grown up around this.

Exactly Cat!

Also for one that is writing books and circulating around Madeleine's name looking for opportunities to cash in on it and fatten his bank account, one would think that at least, when he was in the charge of the investigation, that he would have actually asked to talk to Kate and Gerry McCann.

Especially when you take in consideration that this man, failed and disgraced former PJ detective, never even bothered to turn up the night Madeleine was abducted and did not even bother to meet her parents in days fallowing the abduction.

How could he have formed all these opinions of people he had not even met personally?

It actually beggars belief!

Yet there are still people that hang on this fat fantasist's every word.

Paulo Reis; Duarte Levy and Goncalo Amaral, are well suited, three fantasists who long ago lost their grip on reality.

One has to ask why Goncalo Amaral was ever allowed any near the Madeleine abduction, one only has to look at the corrupt mess, he made of the one other child disappearance he was allowed to head.

That one earned him a conviction for lying and perjury and concealing evidence of a torture.

Some detective!

I did not realize that he did not interview the McCanns and did not
meet them in the beginning of the investigation. Another huge and basic
oversight. Even if it was only for a few moments, it would have gone a
long way to forming a true profile of the McCanns. And as the lead
investigator/detective, you think he would have been leading the
interrogation of the arguidos. But I think it's obvious why he stayed away. If he looked in their faces, if he had to spend more than a few moments with them, he might have felt weakness at how clearly upset and devestated they were. And if he did, what if the sheeple media and police felt it? After all he's done? What would happen? No, like a member of the 3As, he believed in his decision and he would bend facts and evidence to fit his sense of reality.

Rebelo was disappointing. Obvious now he was sent in to attempt to give "impartial" support to the Amaral theory, or to conclude it was a waste and just close the investigation. Plus buy time while the others figured out what to do with the McCanns, the files, etc.

The reaction seemed to always be, why did this happen here, why did the McCanns have to vacation here, as if they were the problem, not the still on the run criminal who caused the disaster. They have no intention of reopening the investigation unless a body is found - which it will never be, I believe - or the McCanns confess.

Even Cipriano's common law husband knows that Goncalo should never have been in charge of another missing child investigation.

Am wondering dianeh, did you accidentally leave the word 'not' out of the second para?

............000..............


Too many FACTs, and it becomes difficult to prove your hypothetical 'incriminating theory', dont you agree, dianeh?.

Not saying that WAS the reason, but just pointing out the facts.

HB noticed that there was no time on the one Smith report/statement. Because of that, it would have been far easier to assert that Gerry was bundleman and thus guilty. In previous cases there has been a history of evidence being lost. So easy to have lost the timed report/statement and rely on the one which could be used to help incriminate

Surely a cop wouldn't deliberately leave the time out?
Surely a cop would make sure it was on?
Why did nobody pick up on it

So, why was it missing?

Fortunately Gerry had so many witnesses as to where he was almost all the time, that there is no way that he could have been bundleman.


I make NO accusations, BUT am pointing out that some obfuscation could make proving the fact that someone was guilty a much easier task. Obfuscation just could have been the reason both for the lack of sealing off the apartment and the lack of timing on the Smith report. ........And as we all know, Amaral has proved himself a liar and manipulator in Court.

I reiterate that I make absolutely NO accusations, but just question why these things happened...and point out possible consequences of such actions, if they were deliberate. Have no doubts, we have to look at all scenarios if we are to find Madeleine. We can leave no stone unturned.

Sadie

You are making my case for me.

The quandry is this.

Is Amaral so incompetent that he failed to seal the crime scene, put a time on a crucial witness statement, failing to clear the McCannsin the first few days, not releasing details etc etc etc . Even if not him personally, he is responsible and should have been reviewing the case. (Good pick up on the time missing from the Smith statement by the way).

OR

Was it all part of a MO following the 'success' of the Cipriano case? (No forensics, wild theories, press leaks, go for the mother, and NO physical evidence that supports the wild claims of the PJ).

I wont give you my conclusions, but I will go on to say that IMO the entire PJ cannot be this incompetent, nor can the entire PJ be so corrupt. But corrupt and incompetent individuals occur in all police forces.

There is I believe a good book that has recently been published that goes into detail about the investigation and asks the same questions that you and I are asking. Perhaps the answer lies there.

How could Amaral seal the crime scene? He did not even attend it, I have tried and tried to discover the first time he did attend this scene, I think it may have been when the British dogs were brought in some THREE months later, (when he finally made the apartment a crime scene) but cannot be sure.

he certainly never attended the scene to speak to the parents, as he has NEVER personally spoken to them. (Neither has his successor Paulo Rebelo)

Ahh, Rosie, see part of the quandry.

Is he such a plonker that the didnt ensure the crime scene was sealed? He didnt have to be there for that, he just had to give directions over the phone. Actually he shouldnt have had to because it should have been standard operating procedure ,but I wont go there.

Or did he trust that the next one in charge did that? Not a good move as the 2IC obviously couldnt be trusted either.

Or was it a deliberate decision not to seal the crime scene?

As for why he never spoke to the McCanns directly, I cannot even begin to fathom. The interviews are not videoed, so he had not way of judging their reactions etc. I can only guess (my opinion only) that he wasnt interested in their reactions, or their answers. That is the only answer I can come up with that makes any sense of his actions.

As for Rebelo. He did observe the rogatories of the Tapas group. Maybe he never spoke to the McCanns because he already knew they were innocent and after the rogs, thought there was nothing further to be gained by interviewing them.

I just don't understand how Mr. shoot from the hip, gut feeling, detective makes determinations without observing the main suspects....certainly makes it seem like he'd decided the Cipriano method was the best method.....child doesn't turn up dead from a stranger in the first few days, then go for the Law and Order method and go for the parents in the most spectacular way possible

Diane, I doubt that after Cipriano he even understood the importance of the crime scene and keeping it the way it LOOKS and not the way he WANTS it to look

Bluj

He understood the importance of the crime scene alright. He does after all have a degree from Lisbon University I believe.

I'm sure he does, Diane, and the fact that an intact one means he'd have to follow the findings there, instead of just divining the cause of crimes as he seems to prefer.

Is he such a plonker that the didnt ensure the crime scene was sealed? He didnt have to be there for that, he just had to give directions over the phone. Actually he shouldnt have had to because it should have been standard operating procedure ,but I wont go there.

Or did he trust that the next one in charge did that? Not a good move as the 2IC obviously couldnt be trusted either.

Or was it a deliberate decision not to seal the crime scene?

As for why he never spoke to the McCanns directly, I cannot even begin to fathom. The interviews are not videoed, so he had not way of judging their reactions etc. I can only guess (my opinion only) that he wasnt interested in their reactions, or their answers. That is the only answer I can come up with that makes any sense of his actions.

As for Rebelo. He did observe the rogatories of the Tapas group. Maybe he never spoke to the McCanns because he already knew they were innocent and after the rogs, thought there was nothing further to be gained by interviewing them.

He writes good stories, doesn't he? sells them too?

Gotta make the story interesting; sad there were no pigs in this one and only swingers and not incest. Incest is far more interesting.

No, I shouldn't be fascitious like this, and I know this is not likely to be the reason, BUT he has made up stories and he should be held to account. I wonder if all the other cases he has been in charge of have juicy little bits added to enrich his argument?

My honest opinion is that he understood the importance of the scene of the crime only 'too' well! However, according to him, there was NO crime, according to him Madeleine had wandered off and she would be found. I would not be surprised to learn that he instructed the GNR NOT to seal off the scene! (That would throw the cat amongst the pigeons if that ever came out).

As for Rebelo not speaking to the McCanns, we have discussed this before i think, I have not changed my opinion of him.
I find it absolutely amazing that no one of any importance in this highly controversial case even spoke to the McCanns.
Whether he thought them innocent or guilty, in my opinion he should have spoken to them. how can he form opinions if he has never even met them?

I have not forgotten how long he kept this distraught couple as arguidos, when he knew the DNA evidence pointed to their innocence. I believe that Rebelo kept them arguidos for as long as he possibly could in order that the case grew as cold as possible, making it as hard as possible to find Madeleine.

In my opinion Rebelo was a yes man, a fall guy and this disappoints because when he was forst put in charge, I had really high hopes that he would help discover what happened to Madeleine, but in the event it turned to be muc of the same.

So we are all agreed, Amaral did understand the importance of the crime scene.

As for Rebelo, I understand why he didnt have to talk to the McCanns, but I dont agree that he didnt. I dont know his reasons for why it took so long to remove the arguido status, but I do agree his primary role was to wind down the case. Even if that was not how it started, that was how it ended. We can never know just what he did do to try to find little Madeleine. But unlike some other copper we know, accusations of torture, impropriety, etc do not follow him around, he may have done his job properly (as well as he was able to).

I do think Amaral knows the importance; I was being flippant at first. :)

I can see the argument for both sides with Rebelo.
