To sum up, with no evidence, no base to this statement, a police officer of a high rank from the Met (Metropolitan Police in the UK), Mr John SHORD, sent an official message to the Leicestershire police.
“Intelligence suggests that a paedophile ring in Belgium made an order for a young girl three days before Madeleine McCann was taken.
“Somebody connected to this group saw Maddie, took a photograph of her and sent it to Belgium. The purchaser agreed that the girl was suitable and Maddie was taken.”
An that is a totally UNFOUNDED STATEMENT. There is NO PHOTO, NO PROOF of this, WHATSOEVER! This was solely based on RUMOURS...
How can such malpractice have been tolerated by the British authorities, at a time when both Madeleine's PARENTS Kate Healy and Gerald McCann were MAIN SUSPECTS?! (the John SHORD email was sent to DC Hughes at LP on 4th March 2008)
I wonder if some connections previously existed -or were established by arrangement. If you click on the RUMOURS link above, the article from Anarak will tell you more details. The Spaniard named TOSCANO, who had the information, offered to meet the McCanns, however they REFUSED!
"Toscano, who attributed Madeleine’s abduction to orders from a paedophile network to someone called “El Francés“, was interviewed several times by the Portuguese authorities, but his allegations were quickly ruled out after investigation. The Spaniard had even asked to meet Kate and Gerry McCann, who had refused."
Question: HOW did the Mccanns know that his information regarding, according to this, Madeleine in a Belgian paedophile ring, was not worth of interest?!
Even the BRITISH POLICE was taking to the bait! (and I repeat, without an ounce of evidence)
I find this all STRANGE to say the least. And: Would Anna Stam be connected with the McCanns? To me it's VERY likely. And the Loop would be complete! Loopy Loop.
To be honest I've always found it really weird that the McCanns had REFUSED to see that Toscano man.
That is really fishy. Why would they do that if they were sincere about their claim and the investigation? Imo it was a huge indication that:
1) they probably were in contact therefore Toscano was instrumental in that great action of SABOTAGING the case, all being orchestrated by them in the first place - if not pre-planned , etc.
2) they were not in contact, didn't know each other but the McCanns feared he would suss them out, flairing he was smart (if the case, I've no idea ) so they prefered NOT to speak with him...
... or more simply they KNEW what had happened so just like for the sighting in Belgium, AGAIN, in summer 07 this time, when Gerry sucked on a lollipop at the PJ station, why bother at all...
...However, ... "Referring to the McCanns’ spokesperson, Clarence Mitchell, The Telegraph states that the “revelation” added weight to Kate and Gerry McCann’s theory that their daughter may have been abducted by a child smuggling ring."
