 'Okay. Just finally, Fiona, I just want to ask you, you are aware that there is going to be a re-enactment over in Portugal, it is either going to be at the end of April or into May'' 
 Reply:   'Umm'. 

 1485 :  'How do you feel about attending that re-enactment'' 

 'Well I've made my feelings clear in a letter, erm, already.Erm, my feelings are, I would do absolutely anything if I felt it was going to help bring, find Madeleine or find who took her. Erm, my reservations are, at this point, how doing the re-enactment is going to achieve that or advance the search in any way. And, obviously, there is a lot of apprehensions about doing it, just in terms of the media and they way we've beentreated, the way the media would react to us doing the re-enactment, how they'd sort of physically actually manage to do a re-enactment without massive media intrusion, erm, and how the information would be used, I mean, 
we all know that we're telling the truth of our actions on the night and if doing a re-enactment were going to be for the purpose of trying to find holes or, you know, in our movements and statements and try and rubbish our statements, then we know that's not going to help find Madeleine, because we know, we were there, and we know we're telling the truth, so I wouldn't be happy to do it if that was the reason for doing it. I'd just like to be convinced how it's going to move the investigation on really, erm, to find Madeleine'. 
 1485 : 'Yeah'. 

 'And, at the moment really, we've got no reason to trust the motives of doing a re-enactment when Kate and Gerry are still aguido and, if they're aguido, I think we've all got to be implicated, because I just don't see how Kate and Gerry could have done anything that's been suggested without us all being 'in on it,' you know, it's just impossible'. 
 1485:   'Is that it'' 
 Reply:   'So, you know, that's a big stumbling block really'. 
 1485 :  'So, at this present moment, you are saying you wouldn't'' 

 'No, I mean, we haven't really had any, been given any information about how it's going to be used and that's the information that I think we would all need if we were going to do it and, obviously, there's no point one of us doing it without everybody doing it. So, I think, you know, as far as I'm concerned, I'd only do it if everybody else was doing it, back and have to do an re-enactment, I really do, and I don't see how, erm, emotions couldn't affect the way it was done, because it would just be horrific, I mean, imagine, you know, Jane having to relive that, Kate having relive that, any of us having to relive that, you, you couldn't do it without it being an emotional thing'. 
 1485:   'Yeah'. 

 'Erm, so I just, I just don't see, I mean, in my eyes, doing it, it would be beneficial if actors and actresses did it because they don't have that emotion and you can still direct them to exactly what you were doing and where you went and your movements. So, so I still don't, we still haven't had an answer to that really, that side of it'. 

 1485:   'Okay. Alright. At this stage I have got nothing else to say to you'. 
 Reply:  'Umm'.


No I don't suppose Officer 1485 had anything else to say to Fiona Payne or any of the others he had to interview.  The interviews must have been a real EYE OPENER for the officers of the Leicestershire Police, a taste of what the Portuguese Police were up against when dealing with this group of people.

Madeleine was not for one moment a concern to them when it came to this reconstruction.  Their concerns were for themselves.  Each and every one of them put themselves before the missing child.

All quite obviously worried as they knew their stories did not make any sense and would most likely not have stood the test of a reconstruction.

Each of them tell us that 'actors' would be best.  That a reconstruction would not help Madeleine.  It was too late.  It should have been done sooner.  That they are telling the truth. That they don't trust the Portuguese Police etc etc.  That they think the police in Portugal simply want to find holes in their stories.

The truth is, if there is no hole it cannot be found.  So, seems strange that they 
ALL FEARED that the police would FIND ONE?

What was the chance that every member of this group would say the same thing, right down to the exact wording as to why they did not want to return?  What are the chances that 
EVERY one of them were worried about their INDIVIDUAL STATEMENT given to police?

The chances I would say - pretty slim - unless they ALL knew that their stories weren't quite what they should have been!

And most important of all:

IF these people TRULY thought Madeleine was out there ALIVE, with someone who had abducted her, be that person a paedophhile or not, if they TRULY wanted to do EVERYTHING they could to have her back with her family, if they had been COMPLETELY HONEST in their STATEMENTS TO POLICE, I believe they would not have refused to assist police with inquiries, nor refused to HELP Madeleine.  

There is 
NOT a reason in the world for these people to have refused.

This nonsense which they have 
ALL spouted, that the police were only wanting them back in Portugal so as to find holes in their statements, no more than them covering their sorry backsides.

Upstanding, decent members of society would never leave a child to such an horrific fate as we are to believe Madeleine faced,  being left with  paedophiles, if they could help in any way.  And this bunch could help.  They just 
No matter if they thought the diligence being asked of them might not bear fruit (though how they felt more qualified than police authorities to make this  judgement) people with nothing to hide would not refuse, they would be falling over themselves to help.

So why N
OT The Tapas Group?  

It is clear they colluded in this, and much else, they are tripping over barrow loads of excuses to justify their decision 
NOT to help Madeleine, to try and justify what they have done, or rather what they didn't do!

Again - Why?

The question their inaction poses - If Madeleine is not alive - Do this group of people know this, and if so, when did they become aware? And did this influence their decision regarding the reconstruction?

Certainly their statements and conduct might suggest that they do indeed "know" more than they are prepared to say.   And in light of this, one could see why the public might think that they do "know more" as why else, would they have left this wee girl to live a life without her family?

Their co-operation may just have led to Madeleine, her whereabouts.

I wonder if they ever give that a moments thought?
