Grâce à la liberté dans les communications, des groupes d’hommes de même nature pourront se réunir et fonder des communautés. Les nations seront dépassées.

08 - AVR 25 - FLO Markley et McGarvey

Deux des officiers de liaison ont tenu à faire savoir que les MC 1) insistaient beaucoup sur l'épisode larmes MMC du 3 mai au matin et 2) avaient demandé à plusieurs reprises si la PJ avait découvert des traces de sédation.


Déposition de Stephen Markley - 25.04.2008


Occupation: Police Officer
Ayant exercé une fonction de Family Liaison Officer (FLO) à PDL.
This statement (composed of 2 pages and signed by me) is true and in accordance with my understanding.
I am police officer Markley of the Leicestershire Police currently working in the criminal unit.
In 2007 and in relation to the Portuguese investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, I was detached to Portugal in the role of family communication officer.
On remarquera l'extraordinaire omission de la date et il est tentant de la rapprocher de l'une des questions supprimées par Stuart Prior, qui portait sur la date d'arrivée et celle de départ.
According to the Portuguese PJ Letter of Request, I was asked to respond to the following question :
En fait la question à laquelle il répond n'a pas été posée par le Ministère Public portugais. Stuart Prior a supprimé les questions du MP et les a remplacées par la question qui suit, une question dont il connaissait la réponse puisqu'il savait ce que les FLO avaient observé auprès de la famille MC. 
Was there anything done or said by Kate or Gerry McCann in your presence or during your various meetings that could raise any suspicion that they had any knowledge about what could have happened to Madeleine, beyond the circumstances described to the Portuguese investigators?
My reply to the question was: No.
Stuart Prior n'avait pas prévu que les deux remarques suivantes seraient ajoutées...
However, in relation to the above, I would like to add the following: At about 20.00 on Saturday 5th May 2007, I arrived at the apartment where Kate and Gerry were staying, with other officers. During the meeting Gerald and Kate had a number of questions to which they wanted follow up and responses from the PJ.
One of these questions was that they wanted the PJ to be aware of was Madeleine's revelation about Wednesday night, when she said that she was left alone during the night. She told Kate and Gerry that she remembered the twins crying and that she wanted to know why neither her mother nor her father had gone to the room to see what was happening.
Il est amusant de voir que les MC aient tant insisté pour que la PJ prenne note d'une remarque que Kate MC a décrite comme "sans importante", "en passant" !
They also wanted to know whether the PJ had any evidence that would suggest that the person who took Madeleine had used any substance to facilitate the abduction.
Pourquoi voulaient-ils savoir si la PJ avait trouvé des traces de sédation ? À rapprocher du fait qu'ils n'ont commencé à parler de sédation par le ravisseur quand ils ont été soupçonnés d'avoir administré une over-dose à MMC.


Déposition de Jim McGarvey - 25.04.2008


I am police Inspector McGarvey of the Leicestershire police force, currently based in the criminal unit.
In 2007 and in relation to the Portuguese investigation carried out into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, I was detached to Portugal in the role of communication officer for the family.
Aucune indication de date non plus.
In accordance with the Portuguese PJ Letter of Request I was asked to respond to the following question : Was there anything done or said by Kate or Gerry McCann in your presence or during various contacts that could raise any suspicion that they could have had any knowledge of what could have happened to Madeleine, beyond the circumstances described to the Portuguese investigators.
My reply to the question: No.

In relation to the above I would like to mention that at approximately 20.00 on the 5th May, I arrived at the McCann apartment with other family communications officers. We were asked several times during this meeting about questions that Gerald and Kate would like to have followed up and responded to by the PJ.
I remember that during the meetings, Kate revealed that Madeleine had spoken with her in the morning of her disappearance and said that she remembered the twins had cried during the night and that she wanted to know why neither her mother or father had appeared. Kate asked herself whether this fact could have any relation with Madeleine's disappearance.
Gerry and Kate also questioned whether there was any suggestion that pointed to the use of drugs to facilitate Madeleine's abduction.
JMG a été frappé de la même manière que son collègue. Il y avait d'autres FLO, ils ont répondu "non" à la question de Stuart Prior, mais n'ont rien dit de plus.
This statement was made by me and is truthful in accordance with my knowledge.
