Clarence Mitchell annonce (UK - Sky News)
CM : Kate and Gerry have gone to Lisbon for a series of meetings with their lawyers, in Portugal, and some of the other Portuguese advisers that they have. Errr... they're planning to only be there for the one day, they're not going to go to Praia da Luz or anywhere like that, errr... this is, if you like, a... a working trip. Errm... of course, the inquiry, errr... into Madeleine's abduction remains suspended in Portugal, there is no active, errm... police work being down over there unless there is any major breakthrough. My understanding is that they are just meeting their lawyers, errr... and, errr... some other advisers they have there.
Dermot Murnaghan : Okay, are we going to hear anymore about, errm... your own private investigation? Of course, there was that flurry of activity in a press conference in, errr... Barcelona after, errr... errr... thought to be...CM : Indeed, well...
DM : ...a significant sighting there. Has anything come of that? Are we going to hear anything more?CM : Well, we've had over a thousand pieces of information come into the investigative side since that news conference; we're very grateful for everybody whose contacted either the website, via email, or phonecalls, errm... and, indeed, to the media for their continuing attention on it. Errm... there is no substantive, errm... detail that I can go into at this stage. All that information is still being processed and the detectives involved will follow the evidence where it takes them. Errm... they've been working in Europe over the last couple of weeks and if anything of any note, errr... comes out of that, we will, of course, announce that in due course.
Conférence de presse
Chris Brown : (Daily Mail) Errm... obviously, errm... Kate if I'm right, this is your first time back in Portugal, errm... since you returned back to England; this must be very emotional for you. How... how are you feeling right now and what do you hope to achieve for this particular visit?
Sandra Felgueiras : Hello, Kate and Gerry. I hoped I would have plenty of questions to put you but I really don't have time to do it. I would like to ask you Kate, errr... particularly Kate, if you and Gerry... do you want, and do you have any hope, to reopen the files here in Portugal?
KMC : I mean, really, we just want to improve the search to find Madeleine, we just want to find Madeleine, and whether that involves reopening the case or not, it doesn't matter because we just want to improve the search, and we want to ask as many people as possible, really, to help us. We want people to believe that Madeleine's alive because there is a very good chance she's alive, errm... I'm sure you'll be familiar with the recent case of Jaycee Dugard, errm... in America being found, after 18 years, and I just think it's so vital and so fair for Madeleine that we don't give up on her, that we... we look for her and we try and find her and I guess I'd like to encourage people to help us and to help Madeleine, you know, and give her a chance 'cause she can't find her way back to us and she deserves to be home.
SF : We haven't talked since you've read the files because [indecipherable]. I would like to ask you if there was anything that surprised you most, even concerning the, errr... Birmingham results. I am... I'm aware that you've already read what is in the files. What do you have to say concerning that? All the evidence that the PJ, the Portuguese PJ, said they had? What did you (inaudible) ?
GMC : Errm... they're based in England; they'll follow up, errr... information wherever we can, errm... and that information will be passed on to the appropriate authorities if and when jurisdiction is needed.
