… when you think about it. How can you go and beg for help from the Government and Police when you don’t answer questions?
The first thing that any copper is going to ask you is why didn’t you answer those questions put to you? Don’t you agree? Now Kate McCann exercised her legal right in Portugal to not answer those questions. Even if she had answered every one of those questions, they held NO validity until they were sworn in by a Judge.
She had to repeat everything in front of a judge before it could be classed as evidence.
Already in Portugal the press were reporting about the Cipriano case, naturally any person would be worried. Torture was being used in those articles, pictures of Leonor were circulating the papers, just like this picture to the left.
And this picture appeared in the Expresso paper dated 4th May 2007, less than 24 hours after Madeleine’s disappearance, relating to an article that states Goncalo Amaral was made an arguido due to him possibly being involved in the alleged torture of Leonor Cipriano.
Now if the lead investigator in the case was already being implicated in possible torture, wouldn’t you be scared of what could happen to you? I know I would.
As we know now due to a trial and his subsequent appeal that he lost, Goncalo Amaral HAS been convicted of perjury and falsifying documents, relating to the Cipriano torture case.
So I would like to move on to a tweet that has appeared on twitter:
We know that Kate McCann along with her husband have had meetings with Scotland Yard and the Home Office and they have handed information in with regards to what has been investigated by their own private detectives. So what is the betting that Kate and Gerry McCann have been entirely honest with Scotland Yard and explained why she didn’t answer those questions and have answered them during their many meetings.
It seems common sense to me, the last thing you want is for a Police Force to turn the investigation back onto yourselves. And Kate McCann would have known she didn’t answer those questions, and that they possibly needed answers, so she told the Police of Scotland Yard all the information they needed.
Just because Kate McCann hasn’t gone running to the press or blogged or posted about answering those questions, it doesn’t mean she hasn’t. We just don’t know and therefore it’s unfair and pure speculation when people say she has not answered those questions.
No wonder Eddie is redundant….
