Parents of Madeleine McCann stop her siblings following search online

My friends, this was taken from The Times newspaper:

S*** and A***** McCann have been prevented from looking for information to preserve their view of the world as safe, a court was told

Madeleine McCann’s siblings have been prevented from looking for information about their sister on the internet to preserve their view of the world as safe, a court in Portugal was told yesterday.

Their mother, Kate McCann, sat in the Lisbon court as a child psychologist warned that the natural curiosity of her eight-year-old twins, S*** and A*****, would lead them to seek information on what happened to their sister.

Mrs McCann, her husband, Gerry, and the twins are suing Gonçalo Amaral, the detective who led the search for Madeleine, over a book entitled Maddie: The Truth of the Lie in which he argues that she was killed accidentally, and implicates her parents in her death.

The McCanns say that their daughter was abducted days before her fourth birthday from their holiday villa in Praia da Luz in May 2007.

David Trickey, a consultant clinical child psychologist, told the court: “I know that recently S*** and A*****’s parents had to stop them accessing information on the internet,”

Mr Trickey advised the McCanns in Portugal after Madeleine’s disappearance in 2007. He told them how to talk to the twins about their sister going missing.

“It was very much to do with the disappearance, what we would call ‘ambiguous loss’, he told the court. “When the twins asked, ‘Where’s Madeleine?’ the answer was ‘we don’t know.’”

Asked if the twins had been left with any trauma as a result of their being left on their own by the adults the night Madeleine disappeared, he said there was “no evidence of that”.

However, Mr Trickey warned that as the children grow up, their natural curiosity might lead to them seeking out information that, if not contradicted or set in the proper context, could undermine their view of the world as safe and of their parents as their protectors.

“I know that recently S*** and A*****’s parents had to stop them accessing information on the internet,” he said.

“Children and adolescents are less likely to want to read difficult-to-read documents.

“My concern is that the book is so easy to read and accessible and may not be balanced by the information.”

The McCanns say the claims in the former chief inspector’s book have hampered the search for their daughter.

Mr Amaral was removed from the Madeleine inquiry in October 2007 after he accused British police of helping her parents to cover up their role in their daughter’s death.

Scotland Yard said in July this year that it had identified 38 potential suspects in the case and opened a new international inquiry after a review of evidence ordered by David Cameron.

It was reported that Scotland Yard had advised the McCanns not to appear in court to avoid antagonising the Portuguese authorities and public.

Mr Amaral, 56, will argue that under Portuguese law he is entitled to make the claims.

Mrs McCann declined to comment after the hearing yesterday.

The hearing will continue next week.
