Police watchdog: McCann inquiry ‘ludicrous’

Kate and Gerry McCann

Met Police Authority member says inquiry into girl’s disappearance is waste of money - 


Kate and Gerry McCann are facing a backlash over plans for the British police to investigate the disappearance of their daughter Madeleine, who was taken from them while she slept in their Praia da Luz holiday apartment four years ago.

After an open letter written by the couple was published in the Sun, prime minister David Cameron asked the Metropolitan Police to get involved in a fresh inquiry into the disappearance of Madeleine, who would now be eight years old.

But a senior member of the watchdog that monitors the Met's activities, the Metropolitan Police Authority (MPA) has spoken out against the decision to re-open the investigation. Jenny Jones told the Mail on Sunday: "The police should not take this case up in this way.   It is ludicrous.

"This could take years and will cost millions. It is very unusual for police to step in like this and it is not an appropriate use of police resources.

"The Government is closing down the Forensic Science Service because there are not enough funds. This is a crucial part of police work.

"Although it is tragic and I feel for the McCanns, how can the Prime Minister justify spending millions of pounds on one case?"


British police take 67 return flights to Portugal as cost of Madeleine McCann search nears £9million


  • Trips last year cost nearly £16,000, around £1,300 a month
  • Came as police carried out largest ever search by British police overseas 
  • Eight-day search in Algarve in June ended with nothing of interest found 
  • David Cameron set a provisional budget for £5million for the investigation
  • Operation Grange has cost around £2.5million every year for three years
  • Home Office said this year's spend likely to be 'broadly in line' with past


I guess Jenny Jones of the MPA back 4 years ago in 2011 was correct when she said that it was ludicrous for the Metropolitan Police to have taken on this investigation, correct too when she said it would take years and cost £m's.  And looks like if the report is correct, there is no end in sight, Met are set to spend at least another £2.5m this coming year!

How many years can the Met justify spending this money when they have come up with nothing thus far, when they have in their possession, the police witness statements given by McCanns and their buddies, which are clearly untruthful, a lot of who shot John - as Judge Judy would say.

Just for the hell of it, would it not be great to see McCanns and their buddies appear before Judge Judy, now that would be a showdown!

If it doesn't make sense - it's a lie!
