Ce n'est pas exact, c'est même Mark Harrison qui a joué les avocats du diable, pourtant sans aucune conviction. Voir son rapport.
MB : Particularly the collection of forensic evidence ?
MB : Local police, the GNR, did respond on the night and by the next morning there was a great deal of police activity.
Back home, Leicestershire Police coordinated the response, but numerous UK agencies became involved once the search for Madeleine escalated into a criminal investigation.
AJ : With due respect to the Leicestershire Police the way the Constabulary is working you know... there's the Metropolitan which is huge and has huge resources and huge expertise and there is the rest. So Gerry and Kate McCann felt that Leicestershire just didn't have the wherewithal to conduct this problem properly.
I was shocked first and foremost when the MCs went immediately under the Portuguese system considered suspects. That was the first critical mistake, it was unfair and for the investigators unfair with regard to the integrity of the forensic evidence that would be captured and unfair to the MCs themselves. Clear the ground beneath your feet first and foremost.
MB : So are you saying that the past six years and 12 million pounds has all been a waste ?
MB : The Portuguese and the Metropolitan police both admit their relationship has sometimes been fraught, but they now say they're working closely together.
??????????????????? we can fish around this, as much as you want. Ourselves and the Portuguese are doing a critical piece of work and we don’t want to spoil it by putting titbits out on it publicly.
