What do you know about what Kate is thinking, feeling about
the kind of direction this inquiry is taking.
Inaudible...The thing is Kate and Gerry are not involved and
the stuff must have been planted there, you know the DNA is
there, its just unbelievable.
What you think, you think that someone may have
Well, the perpetrator or someone else has put it there,
because I know Kate and Gerry would not harm Madeleine at
And you think someone may have planted DNA to try and
Yes, I think so.
Is it possible that Kate with her medical background ,might
have, wanted to help Madeleine to go to sleep that night?
Not at all.
Even out of kindness, she she certainly would not have given
Not even out of kindness, I think they may have used Calpol
like most mothers do....(inaudible).
first and foremost they wouldn't have done that.
What effect is it having Mr. Healy on the family generally,
particularly the way things are going in Portugal?
Um well, my sister in law had a collapse the other day it
might have been pressure, it might have been tension, I dont
know. Its affected all of us. My sister from Canada rang
today, she is so upset , she has not been to bed all night.
How about you? cause you've not been well have you?
Well, I think its err I'm just horrified ,that anyone could
even think that my daughter would do such a thing. I know
she hasn't done anything to harm Madeleine. ,Gerry the same,
its just devastating to hear people would even think it.
Whats your view of the Portuguese Police now and the way the
Investigation has been conducted.
We've been through weeks and months, we've been very
supportive of the Portuguese Police. I don't know. I just
don't know. I'M not that happy.
You say for weeks you've been supportive but you don't feel
that way anymore?
No, I am beginning to doubt. When people have tried to bad
mouth the Portuguese police we have always shied away from
it, but I don't care any more.
So, what are your views now with the Portuguese police?
Well, I dont want to say too much. I'm not happy with them,
lets put it that way.
Your clearly concerned about the way ....
Do you feel that they will not now get the level of support
they have had from the family thus far?
Well, they've already taken eleven hours of support away by
interviewing Kate, for that time why weren't they out
looking for Madeleine, or doing something?. This is just a
waste of time ...a farce...it would be a joke if it wasn't
Why do you think they have taken this course?
I don't know. I just say one thing ,in Faro airport. I never
saw one poster of Madeleine . They are concerned about the
tourist industry, you know, they, Philly McCann and a friend
of hers were bodily escorted out of the airport one time...(inaudible).
They are terrified that their tourist industry is going to
You think that they fear that all of this will affect their
I think they just want Kate and Gerry out of their country
and close it all down.
Now Kate and Gerry were planning to return this week-end
were they not?. Whats the latest on that?
Inaudible...I don't know , we will have to wait and see.
What do you think will be going through Kates mind now,
because she's been very supportive too, publicly at least,
towards the Portuguese Police ?
I don't know,. I think she will be bewildered and be
horrified that anyone can even think that of her, you know.
What would you say to her if she were with you now?
I'd just hug her to death
Do you want a break? are you O:K:?
No, No...I just want to hug her to death. She is so
unprotected over there...you know..
How do you get through it?
Well, funny enough I sleep well of a night. I don't spend an
hour without thinking about Madeleine. Sometimes, I go down
dark roads, other times you know, tend to forget about her
and it gets easier ...and then suddenly, it hits you and
like someone kicking you in the stomach...you know...
Do you believe that Madeleine will be found?
Well, according to Gerry he's seen stuff that we haven't
seen and there's nothing as yet to suggest that she's dead.
We have got to believe that she's alive.
What is it like for you, as a father of this woman, to hear
accusations about that she may have played a part in the
It's unbelievable, disgusting and obscene. My daughters not
like that , I know her.
