Madeleine McCann's parents testify about illegal wiretaps

Kate and Gerry McCann claims that most news about ther daughter were invented.

LONDON - The British Parliament on Wednesday received the parents of Madeleine McCann, British girl who disappeared in 2007 during a vacation with her parents in Portugal. Gerry and Kate McCann were the targets of numerous reports suspicions of British tabloids. The former "News of the World" went on to publish excerpts from the diary of Kate. The couple, however, believe that it was the victim of illegal wiretapping. Earlier, a British newspaper reported that James Murdoch, son of Australian magnate Rupert Murdoch, would have left the board of News Group Newspapers, responsible for publishing the newspaper "The Sun", "Sunday Times" and "The Times".

Gerry McCann recalled a hearing in Parliament that suffered exposure after the disappearance of his daughter, Madeleine, and said that one of the worst news was the machete of the tabloid "Daily Mirror" that gave the girl dead. Kate has already said she felt "completely violated" to see her diary published in the "News of the World. The couple blamed the Portuguese police of leaking protest information to British journalists.

- Unless gramped as our phones have been, and I believe they were not, the news was all invented - said Gerry.

James Murdoch had resigned from the board of British newspapers

James Murdoch, son of Australian magnate Rupert Murdoch, would have left the board of News Group Newspapers, responsible for publishing the newspaper "The Sun", "Sunday Times" and "The Times". According to the newspaper "Evening Standard," James continued as director of the European arm of News Corp.. Nobody's News International commented on the information.

The crisis in the media conglomerate began with the illegal wiretapping scandal and led to the closing of the Sunday tabloid "News of the World." Editors, reporters and Murdoch themselves are accused of obtaining information and encourage the use of wiretapping in the newspaper. According to documents obtained by "Evening Standard", James had resigned last September.

This week, witnesses and victims of illegal wiretaps began to testify in the British Parliament. Until now, the girl's parents Milly Dowler, who had invaded the answering machine after being kidnapped and killed, and the actor Hugh Grant appeared in court. On Wednesday, who's going to Parliament are the parents of Madeleine McCann, missing since 2007.

Press was biased and confusing, say parents of Madeleine McCann at a hearing on "News of the World"

The parents of Madeleine McCann, who disappeared in 2007, Kate and Gerry McCann, were heard Wednesday at a hearing that is part of the investigation into the wiretapping scheme of News Corp., which led to the closure of the tabloid "News of the World "Rupert Murdoch.

In the statement, the couple criticized the confusion of information and the suspicions raised about the participation of the parents in the crime.

Kate said she was "desperate" by news fluids found in the car the couple. "There was fluid blood, but it was repeated so that it became a fact. We just wanted to find our daughter," she said.

The "News of the World" was one of the publications that raised suspicions about the couple, but curiously, Kate and Gerry McCann tried to publish a series of articles in the book written about Kate worse case. "I was terrified at the invitation after what they had written about us," said Gerry in the audience.

He said there was a meeting with Will Lewis and Rebekah Brooks, former director of the tabloid, to set the negotiation. The couple's interest in the agreement was to generate a new interest in the case that he should be reopened.

The couple said they had been suffering from cramps, but criticized the way the British press, generally covered the case. Newspapers such as "Daily Star", "Sunday Star" and "Daily Express", all the company's Express Newspaper, were cited for publishing biased material on parents. In the case of the "Daily Express", the newspaper was forced to pay compensation of 550 thousand pounds to the couple for libel.

For parents, the extra publicity the case has not helped. "I do not believe that has contributed, especially in 2007 and 2008. There was much confusion," said Gerry. "She was on the covers of newspapers every day, but this is not the issue, when the story is negative, does not help," added Kate.

The survey, conducted by Judge Brian Leveson, may recommend major changes in the way the media is regulated in the UK and also present new revelations in the case of staples.

This week we have been hearing the parents of the young Milly Dowler, killed in 2002, actor Hugh Grant and comedian Steve Coogan. This first phase of investigation will be focused on the practices carried out by the media, culture and ethics of the media and its relationship with politicians and police and also covers the case of the victims.

The second part will be further investigated in the case of wiretaps performed by the newspaper, although this phase can only begin after the completion of the ongoing police investigation, whose completion date was not determined.

The "News of the World", which was closed because of the scandal, held for years, apparently in a systematic way, a spy of famous cell phones, journalists and others in order to obtain exclusive stories.

Kate and Gerry McCann testified today in London, an inquiry into illegal wiretapping, following the scandal of the newspaper "News of the World."

The McCanns went to court today in London to be heard at the inquiry into illegal wiretapping, along with other public figures like Hugh Grant. K. Rowling or Sienna Miller, who also testified to have seen their lives spied for British newspapers.

This survey follows the wiretapping scandal of the newspaper "News of the World", which ended in July after a proven systematic violations of the law.

The McCanns said that the constant media pressure that was submitted, affected her family life. The disappearance of Madeleine MacCann, during the vacation that the couple spent in Portugal and the suspicion that falls on Kate and Gerry, led to intense media coverage that had a devastating effect on their life.

Gerry said in the survey, news circulated that "sinister" about their involvement in the abduction of her daughter, who quickly became "highly speculative". His wife, Kate, explained that he became depressed when the news began to Madeleine as dead and that his words have never had great weight against the power of the media.

Also asked about a newspaper has reported that the couple sold Madeleine to be without money, responded that this news was "nothing less than shameful."

Kate and Gerry McCann complain of leaks from the Portuguese authorities for the media

Kate and Gerry McCann said on Wednesday in court in London that there were leaks from the Portuguese authorities for the media. "There were leaks of research that clearly wanted to indicate that there was strong evidence that Madeleine was dead and that we were involved," said the father of the girl who disappeared in May 2007 in Praia da Luz

"For everyone who followed the news in July, August and September 2007, it is perfectly reasonable to assume that there were elements of the inquiry to speak to the Portuguese media," he added. "We do not know if they were exposed to the UK average, but what we saw were pieces of information, which, for me, the British media had no way of knowing whether they were true or not, and which were then published, often in an exaggerated way , giving rise to hundreds of headlines, "he lamented.

Kate and Gerry McCann testified on Wednesday in London, an inquiry into illegal wiretapping, following the wiretapping scandal of the newspaper "News of the World", which ended in July after a proven systematic violations of the law.

As we can all see, the press published smears, theories without no evidence to prove it, just to sell newspapers, without care for searching the truth:

Madeleine McCann was abducted, her parents are completely innocent,

Madeleine McCann is real, living, findable child.
