07 - DÉC 12 - Lettre Mission Rogatoire (1)


Lettre rogatoire - 12.12.2007 (1) 
adressée aux autorités britanniques compétentes en matière judiciaire, au nom de la justice et conformément aux préconisations de l'Assistance Mutuelle Légale Internationale (act 144/99, 1999-08-31)
Considering the facts justifying this Letter of Request and its accomplishment, the Public Prosecutor for the jurisdiction of Portimao, Portugal, requests the competent Judicial Authorities in the United Kingdom to carry out, observing all the legal formalities, the investigations mentioned below.


1 - Introduction et description des faits
An Inquiry-recorded under no. 201/07/0 GALGS-is in progress at the Public Attorney's Office of Portimao, carried out by the Public Prosecution Service, having Gerald Patrick McCann, Kate Marie Healy and Robert Murat as arguidos [formal suspects].
This inquiry aims at determining the circumstances of the disappearance of Madeleine Beth McCann, born on May 12, 2003, daughter of Gerald Patrick McCann et Kate Marie Healy. The minor disappeared from the Apartment G5A, Ocean Club Resort, Praia da Luz - Lagos, Algarve.

- The disappearance of MMC was reported to the 24/7 service of the PJ through a phone call from the National Republic Guard [GNR] in Lagos made around midnight on May 3, 2007.
- A team of investigators was immediately deployed to the place, in order to inspect it.
- Facing the fact, the disappearance of a minor, the investigation outlined the several possible scenarios. The disappearance took place in the period of time between 05.35 p.m. and 10.05 p.m., on May 3, 2007.
- Since the beginning, the minor's parents attributed the fact (the disappearance) to an act committed by third parties, claiming it was an abduction.
- Although this being a possible scenario, the family's procedures led in that direction, including the use of an intense media campaign.
- In fact, the next day in the morning, British television channels and newspapers were already announcing the disappearance/abduction of the minor.

Time went on without this scenario being absolutely confirmed. A ransom request in exchange for information or for the child itself was never made.
However, and in view of the statement made by one of their friends, Jane Tanner, we could be facing such as scenario.
- After receiving the report, a judicial inspection was made to the place, resorting immediately, among other assets, to 'sniffer dogs' of the GNR.
- We must point out that these dogs were specifically trained to follow tracks and find people, besides taking part in international trainings, accomplishing the corresponding protocols.
- International dissemination was made;
- During three days these kinds of dogs were used in searches carried out in a perimeter of approximately 15 square kilometres [+/- 5.8 square miles];

Meanwhile, investigations were going on in order to collect all kinds of information, always having in view to work out all possible scenarios. Countless investigations were carried out, in order to confirm or invalidate the several clues concerning a possible abduction.
Statements from all employees and service providers of the resort were obtained.


- At a certain time, keeping all the other lines of investigation open, it was decided to make a new inspection to the place from which the child has disappeared.
- This inspection technique is commonly used in the U.K. and consists of using two specially trained dogs.
- We must stress the fact that in the United Kingdom the resort to this kind of inspection is common and that it has a very high percentage of success.
- One of the dogs is trained to detect 'dead body scent' and the other one, human blood traces.
- All the inspections were recorded, with sound and image, being directed by the British colleagues handling the dogs.
En fait un handler, Martin Grime, et le spécialiste britannique des cas de disparition, Mark Harrison.
- In these large number of objects and places inspected, the dogs identified and alerted to the following places and objects:


1. Apartment 5 A, Ocean Club resort, the place from where the little girl disappeared
Dead body scent dog :
*in the couple's bedroom, in a corner, next to the wardrobe
*in the living-room, behind the sofa, next to the apartment's side window;
Human blood detecting dog: 
*in the living-room, behind the sofa, next to the apartment's side window (exactly in the same place the dead body scent dog gave the alert);


2. Yard area close to apartment 5 A 
Dead body scent dog:
*in one of the flower beds; the trainer commented on the swiftness of the detected scent;


3. Apartment where the other group members (TP7) were lodged
*NOTHING was detected by any of the dogs;

4. Current house of the MC couple (at the time the inspection was carried out):
*NOTHING was found in the house by any of the dogs;

5. In the village of Luz:
*NOTHING was detected by any of the dogs;


6. In the clothes and belongings of the MC family
Dead body scent dog:
*in two pieces of cloth of Kate Healy
*in one piece of cloth of the minor MMC
*Possibly, in the cuddly toy of MMC (the dead body scent was detected while the cuddly toy was still inside the house where the family stayed at that time).
*the alert was confirmed outside the house;


7. In the vehicle used by the MC family
Dead body scent dog:
*alerted to the car key;
Human blood detecting dog; 
*alerted to the car key;
*alerted to the inside of the car's luggage compartment;


8. In the vehicle used by a friend of the family, who was lodged in the same resort for some days at the same time:
*NOTHING was detected by any of the dogs:


9. In all vehicles used by the arguido [formal suspect] Robert M and by persons close to him:
*NOTHING was found by any of the dogs.
(In a total of ten vehicles, the dead body scent dog and the blood scent dog only alerted to the vehicle of the MC family, rented on May 27)


- Forensic examinations are being carried out to the places and objects marked by the blood scent dog and to which this dog gave alert.

- Based on the performance of the dog team, revealing the possibility of the presence of a body in the apartment and in the vehicle used by the MC family, and in order to give Gerald MC and Kate H the chance to have their position in the proceedings safeguarded, they were named arguidos [formal suspects], merely due to the possibility of their involvements with a possible body.


- The information gathered at the beginning with the family and friends - a group made up of a total of nine adult persons - reveals some disparities and shows that it is necessary to determine with certainty the precise way these facts have occurred.
- According to the parents and to the other members of the Group's account, they went to have dinner, all of them leaving their children, sleeping, in their own apartments.
- We are aware that, a posteriori, they got together in a meeting where they remembered the rules referring to the continuous supervision of the children while they were having dinner.
On ne saurait dire plus clairement que les règles du jeu ont été fixées après coup.
- The assumed version was that someone in the group went to the apartments every 15 or 30 minutes to check if everything was all right with the children.
- There is some inconsistency in the statements of the entire group in what concerns some details, which should be better clarified, with a view to determine rigorously the activity of the people that evening.
- Checks on the children were made in two ways; one, only to hear if any of them was crying (if there was silence it meant everything was all right), and the other, to actually check on them.


- From the data in the proceedings, we conclude that:
# MMC shall have been last seen by third parties around 05.35 p.m.;
# After that time, she shall only have been with her parents and was possibly (to be confirmed) seen by the witness David Payne, around 07.00 p.m. inside the apartment used by the MC family;
Où l'on voit que le procureur ne croit pas trop à la visite de DP. Mais a-t-il connaissance des curieuses dépositions écrites des Payne ?
# Afterwards, the witness Matthew Oldfield, when checking on the MC children, around 09.30 p.m., and despite the fact that he entered the apartment,  did not have visual contact with MMC.


From this, we can conclude, in an objective way and regarding the statements that were taken, the following:
# If there was the participation of third parties in the minor's disappearance: she shall have been removed from the apartment between 09:15 p.m. (approximately) - the time her father saw her - and 10:05 p.m. (approximately) - the time her mother noticed she was missing.
Donc deux déclarations non indépendantes : le père, la mère. 
# If her parents actually participated in the disappearance: the minor may have been removed between 05:35 p.m. and 10:05 p.m. (in case David Payne has not seen her around 07:00 p.m.; if he did, the time of her disappearance should be between 07:00 p.m. and 10:05 p.m.).
Où l'on voit que l'implication possible des parents est clairement énoncée.


- Following the analysis made to the information obtained from the statements, one of the members of the group, Jane Tanner, became very important due to the information she gave: she saw someone, at dinner time, around 09.15 p.m., crossing the street (en fait traversant le T formé par la rue FGM et  la rue ADS qui...) that provides access to the main entrance of the apartment towards Robert M's house, carrying a child.
La première localisation de Tannerman faite par Jane est différente. Le procureur en a-t-il connaissance ? De fait elle ne figure pas dans le rapport final de la PJ.
- We can also perceive the lack of a consistent version about the alleged sighting of the man carrying the child in what concerns Gerald MC's and Jane T's statements, as well as in what concerns Jeremy Wilkins' witness statement, who was in that place, at the mentioned date and time. 
- Even the place where, allegedly, they would have passed by each other is not very well explained by none of them.

- Regarding all that has been found out, the facts indicate that MMC's disappearance took place, on the night of May 3rd, 2007, between 05.35 p.m. and 10.05 p.m., from inside the apartment 5A, in the Ocean Club resort in Praia da Luz, used by the McCann couple and their three children.
- Since there was an alert given by the two dogs (dead body scent/blood), behind the sofa of the living room, it was possible to consider that MMC's dead body may have been in that place, which originated the gathering of material to be subject to biological examination.

- According to a preliminary, not final report made by the Forensic Science Service (FSS) of Birmingham, England, there is cellular material in the collected samples; however, the FSS do not definitely state that this cellular material belongs to MMC.
- Besides the dead body scent dog strongly alerted to the room where the MC couple used to sleep.
Le procureur a raison de souligner cette alerte qui, n'ayant pas été confirmée par le chien "sang", montre que l'EVRD a réagi à l'odeur de cadavre.

- There was also a new strong dead body scent alert given on KMC's clothes. Là non plus le chien "sang" n'a pas réagi.
- There was also a strong dead body scent alert in the car used by the couple (since May 27th, 2007), along with the human blood detecting dog's alert to the luggage compartment of that vehicle. Du sang a été trouvé sur la carte de démarrage.
- The before mentioned FSS's Interim Report indicated that there are, resulting from the examinations made to the luggage compartment, biological components that may be compatible with the ones of the minor ; however, this test does not definitely show that the traces originated in MMC's body.
- The dead body scent dog, as well as the human blood detecting dog, also gave alert to the key of the before mentioned vehicle. The Laboratory also confirmed the existence of GMC's DNA in the key. Furthermore, this last Alert was given by the dog's when the key was placed away from the vehicle and in a place out of sight.
  
- We must point out as well some contradictions regarding the MCs' account and some other statements that were taken.
# The neighbour from the apartment above said that on May 1st, she noticed MMC cried out for an hour and fifteen minutes (between 10.45 p.m. and midnight). En fait Pamela Fenn a entendu un enfant, pas un moins de 3 ans, pleurer et appeler "Daddy".
# One of the cleaning maids saw one of the siblings' cots in the couple's bedroom and the other in the children's bedroom, which contradicts the arguidos' (formal suspects) version, who assured that the cots were always in the children's bedroom.
# The before mentioned maid alleged that, when she was cleaning, the shutters were open, since she noticed the light was entering. This was also denied by the MC couple, who assured that they closed the shutters of MMC's bedroom since the first day and that's how they kept them.

The group of friends, duly identified and already interviewed, of the missing child's parents was made up of :
1. DAVID ANTHONY PAYNE, Leicester
2. FIONA ELAINE PAYNE, same address
3. DIANNE WEBSTER, living in Bedford
4. RUSSELL JAMES O'BRIEN, living in Exeter
5. JANE MICHELLE TANNER, same address
6. MATTHEW DAVID OLDFIELD, living in London
7. RACHAEL MANPHILLY OLDFIELD, same address

- The undertaken investigations also allowed to determine that on the night of the events the formal suspects Gerald and Kate, as well as the remaining group of friends, maintained telephone contacts, sometimes insistently, either via sms, or by voice, with the following phone numbers :
(List of 44 different telephone numbers quoted in this part of the report)
