JOSE ANES (62) Year 2007 (Former-Director of Lisbon’s police laboratory)
Jose Anes, 62, blasted police procedures and said: “Mistakes in the early hours demolished the entire case.” The ex-director of Lisbon’s police lab highlighted the failure to seal off the McCanns’ holiday apartment after Maddie was reported missing on May 3. A series of blunders meant crucial evidence was lost forever. Remaining evidence was contaminated and made worthless. Mr Anes said: “If the scene is not preserved in the first hours, all the hours of effort that follow are useless. “I am utterly convinced — unless some new, concrete evidence suddenly emerges — the case will never reach trial.” He warned that even if it did go to court, a defence lawyer could easily get it thrown out because of doubts over contaminated evidence. Jose Anes is on the speaker's circuit for freemasons as a well-published author on the subject e.g. speaking at the "London Freeman' s Conclave ", of which he is a member, belonging to the Order of the "Holy Royal Arch Knights Tempar Priest/Order of Holy Wisdom.

Alberto Costa PJ

ALBERTO BERNARDES COSTA (Minister of Justice)
Portugal Justice Minister, Alberto Costa, had to step in publicly to assure all parties that the relationship between the Portuguese and British police forces working on the Madeleine McCann case was still strong and of "beneficial co-operation."
Alberto Costa claimed that "it is important that all teams are focused on the investigation work and not on the comments" and was reacting to comments made by Gonçalo Amaral to a daily newspaper where he criticised British police action. Gonçalo Amaral, who has said he thought his statements were being made "off the record", had accused British police of "working exclusively on the information wanted by the McCanns and that suits them better.".


Mr Amaral's comments were made in relation to a report in the British media about an anonymous email sent to the official website of Prince Charles.
The email accused a former employee of the Ocean Club of being responsible for the abduction of Madeleine McCann in a revenge action to destroy the resort's credibility. But the PJ investigator said this information "had no credibility for the Portuguese police" and therefore "it was completely excluded" from the investigation.

He held an impromptu press conference on Saturday 5th May, in Portimao - and admitted his men were working on the assumption the case was an abduction with motives that could be sexual or to secure a ransom - which was unprecedented.

ALIPIO RIBEIRO Head of P.J. Lisbon

ALIPIO RIBEIRO
Hovering in the background has been Alipio Ribeiro, Portugal's most senior police officer and the national director of the Policia Judiciaria.
On 21/10/07 he was interviewed by El Pais:
Asked about the leaks from the Portuguese police:
"There has been, without doubt, but less than it would appear. The imagination of journalists has also worked hard. What is certain is that the police must have serenity to separate history, fantasy, as police. We can not get carried away with emotion, we must keep open all scenarios and walk step by step."
He confirms that the paedophile abduction theory came from the McCanns.
Asked about the McCanns' publicity campaign:
"First, we have never had insufficient means in this case, although it is true that excessive international concern has multiplied alleged sightings of the girl and red herrings to a level that would have been too high for any police of the world. Secondly, we still do not know the truth, so I could not make moral judgments on that campaign. I have no results yet, I do not know what happened that night."
Asked about the British press coverage:
"And it must be understood that the British press works that way. They said unjust things, but we could not react to this day, get to play ping pong, the Judicial Police against the British press. That game does not interest us."

PAULO REBELO (45)
Paulo Rebelo, an assistant national director of the Policia Judiciária (PJ), has been appointed as the head of the Madeleine McCann investigation. Officially his new role is the chief of the PJ criminal investigation department based in Portimao, which covers Praia da Luz. Rebelo made his career at the Central Directory for the Investigation of Drug Trafficking before being appointed one of four associate directors last year. He was head of the criminal investigation department in Lisbon which uncovered the notorious “Casa Pia” paedophile ring in 2002. Other high profile cases include the “Mea-Culpa” investigation into the death of 13 people in an arson attack. He headed the “Freeport case” in which a PJ officer was convicted of leaking details of a corruption investigation on the eve of the last parliamentary elections. Rebelo is said to be highly regarded. Colleagues say he is nice and a good communicator. He is close to the PJ’s national director, Alipio Ribeiro, who demoted the the previous head of the inquiry, Goncalo Amaral.

PORTUGUESE FORENSIC EXPERTS

On 29th November four members of the Portuguese investigation team met five experts from the Forensic Science Service (FSS) in Birmingham at Leicestershire Police headquarters to review and interpret the DNA results. The FSS had been conducting the tests for the Portuguese authorities for the last four months. Tests are said to have been conducted on blood samples, bodily fluids and hair found inthe Mrs McCanns' holiday apartment in Praia da Luz and in the car the couple hired 25 days after Madeleine disappeared on May 3. Leicestershire Police and the FSS both described the meeting as routine. A spokeswoman for the East Midlands force said: "Throughout the investigation there has been really good dialogue between the teams in Portugal and the UK but they felt it was a good time to sit down and talk face to face. They are not going to be interviewing anyone else. It is a routine meeting and then they will be going home." It is reported that Mark Williams-Thomas (a British ex-detective) also attended the meeting.

Inspector Ricardo Paiva

RICARDO PAIVA
At the meeting, the PJ relied on Ricardo Paiva, one of the investigation's main officers. He is not head of the inquiry, but the inspector from the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) in Portimao who is one of those who has been working closest with all the diligences. "He is, probably, the person who knows the process best", several sources with the investigation explained to Jornal de Noticias. This was not the first time that he had travelled to England for this case, as he worked with the British officers when they were in the Algarve supporting the investigation.

Kate McCanns comment from the Book Madeleine Page 250

Each time a dog gave a signal, Ricardo would pause the video and inform me that blood had been found in this site and that the DNA from the sample matched Madeleine’s. He would stare at me intently and ask me to explain this.These were the only times I didn’t respond with a ‘No

comment.’ Instead I said I couldn’t explain it, but neither could he. I remember feeling such disdain for Ricardo at this point. What was he doing? I thought. Just following orders? Under my breath, I found myself whispering,‘Fucking tosser, fucking tosser.’ This quiet chant somehow

kept me strong, kept me in control. This man did not

deserve my respect. ‘Fucking tosser . . .’

Carlos Anjos, the head of the Portuguese police federation, stepped into the fray, saying that Kate and Gerry McCann "do not help the investigation" and that the McCanns were using PR as "diversion tactics". On 19th November (Panorama programme) he was shown as saying: "We have uncooperative witnesses that don’t collaborate, the McCanns, the friends, the people that were there are not collaborating with the investigation"

JUDGE PEDRO DANIEL DOS ANJOS FRIAS
JUDGE PEDRO DANIEL DOS ANJOS FRIAS (38 ) Year 2007
The immediate future of Madeleine McCann’s parents lies in the hands of a criminal instruction judge who has been in his post since August, For Pedro Daniel dos Anjos Frias, being appointed to a role overseeing police investigations in southern Portugal was simply the next step in his highly successful career. Judge Frias is renowned for his diligence. Some lawyers, particularly defence barristers, are said to be daunted by his businesslike manner. Others are said to feel that he can be aloof

This short Portuguese video shows Pedro Frias, the investigating judge, arriving at court in his car. In the video they say that he is 38 years old and previously worked in the circle of Lagos. 

It was Pedro Daniel dos Anjos Frias, who rejected the prosecutors' request to have the McCanns brought back to Portugal for further questioning. He insisted that the fresh interviews be carried out by British police in the UK. 

There is also a brief clip of the McCanns entering the church at Praia da Luz with their own key and a short interview with Father Hubbard

The president of the Union of the Magistrates of the Public Ministry, António Cluny, rejected the idea that the Portuguese police did not have sufficient funds to maintain the investigation into Madeleine's disappearance. The statements made by the McCann's spokesman and their lawyers on 9th/10th November are without foundation. If the PJ do not have sufficient funds in their annual budget, the Portuguese government will be asked to make an "exceptional payment" to cover the additional costs.

 NOEL HOGAN
Kate and Gerry McCann have hired a former Met Police officer to carry out a "cold case" review into Madeleine's disappearance. Noel Hogan, a former CID detective, has spent hundreds of hours interviewing British witnesses in the case. He has also gone through each witness's existing statements line by line. Among those he has interviewed include the so called "Tapas seven" who were on holiday with the McCanns in Praia da Luz last May. He is also thought to have taken Kate and Gerry McCann through their own statements in minute detail. Mr Hogan spent eight years in the Met where he reached the rank of detective superintendent. Since 1986 he has run his own detective agency in Surrey, Hogan International, which claims to have extensive experience dealing with missing-person cases.

Danie Krugel

DANIEL KRUGEL
In July 2007 the McCann’s called in Daniel Krugel, a former South African detective, with a record for finding missing children. He spent 4 days searching in and around Praia da Luz. He believes that he has followed the route taken by Madeleine from the apartment, through paths and roads leading to a nearby beach. He then drew a map and handed this to investigators who searched the area on two occasions, but found no tangible evidence of any kind and has said that there is a slight possibility that she could be alive. Kate and Gerry McCann believe that Krugel’s findings show that Madeleine was abducted and placed on a boat, whereas the Portuguese media see this as her body being placed on a boat and then dumped at sea. The Portuguese police were aware of Krugel’s search at the time and followed up his findings.

JOHN STALKER
John Stalker was Deputy Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police who came to the fore of public attention during the so-called "shoot-to-kill" scandal in Northern Ireland in the mid-1980s. He was in the Serious Crime Squad, the Bomb Squad and the Drugs Squad. He travelled round the world studying terrorism and crime and on his return worked for 2 years in Northern Ireland. Here, somewhat controversially, he revealed an alleged Royal Ulster Constabulary "shoot-to-kill" policy, much to the embarrassment of the authorities, his superiors and the British Government, and was probably the victim of a 'dirty tricks' campaign to discredit him. On October 28th he was reported to say, "One thing above all worries me: Why have the McCanns and the seven other members of their group – the Tapas Nine – remained so silent? My gut instinct is that some big secret is probably being covered up. Unlike other high-profile cases I have worked on, not one of them has been prepared to break ranks or really come out and support each other. After all this time and pressure, I cannot believe that nobody wants to speak. Their answer has always been no comment but there is surely some division between them. So what are they hiding? I have a real suspicion that we are not being told the whole truth. There is something else there, some issue that members of the party are embarrassed about. While they continue to refuse to talk it is unlikely we will find out what it is for a very long time but one thing is certain – it will eventually come out

Desmond Thomas, former deputy head of Hampshire CID, came forward, around the middle of September, when his expertise was needed.

LORD JOHN STEVENS

LORD JOHN STEVENS
Lord John Stevens, former Metropolitan Police chief, believes in the innocence of the McCann. On a opinion column in “News of the World”, he claims he has always based his conclusions on “hard evidence”, during his 30 years as a police detective. Then, he says he is making his judgement about the McCann based in what he read on newspapers: “Again, I don't say this from believing in the McCanns' innocence or their guilt. I simply don't know either way. But from the evidence I have read I don't think they did it. Unless the Portuguese police have something else, it doesn't make sense. The couple don't fit the profile and their opportunity was limited.” Paulo Reis (Gazeta Digital) pointed out that Lord Stevens doesn't even know what evidence the Portuguese police has and believes that the article suggests that Lord Stevens is so sure they are innocent that he doesn't feel the need of the same “hard evidence” he claims he always needed, in his police career.

This specialist team of four handlers and dogs will be on call to help in murder enquiries and other incidents involving human remains. Mick Swindells has been featured in several British and Portuguese documentaries. He explains that what the dogs react to is totally intangible - likening it to a "fragrant soap" to the human nose. However, his greatest emphasis has been on the dog's inability to lie.
