Transcript

Reporter

What do you know about what Kate is thinking, feeling about the kind of direction this inquiry is taking.

Brian

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.

Reporter

What you think, you think that someone may have deliberately?

Brian

Well, the perpetrator or someone else has put it there, because I know Kate and Gerry would not harm Madeleine at all.

Reporter

And you think someone may have planted DNA to try and implicate them?

Brian

Yes, I think so.

Reporter

Is it possible that Kate with her medical background ,might have, wanted to help Madeleine to go to sleep that night?

Brian

Not at all.

Reporter

Even out of kindness, she she certainly would not have given her....

Brian

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.

Reporter

What effect is it having Mr. Healy on the family generally, particularly the way things are going in Portugal?

 

Brian


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.

Reporter

How about you? cause you've not been well have you?

Brian

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.

Reporter

Whats your view of the Portuguese Police now and the way the Investigation has been conducted.

Brian

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.

Reporter

You say for weeks you've been supportive but you don't feel that way anymore?

Brian

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.

Reporter

So, what are your views now with the Portuguese police?

Brian

Well, I dont want to say too much. I'm not happy with them, lets put it that way.

Reporter

Your clearly concerned about the way ....


Brian

Yes

Reporter

Do you feel that they will not now get the level of support they have had from the family thus far?

Brian

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 so disgusting.

Reporter

Why do you think they have taken this course?

Brian

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 be hit.


Reporter

You think that they fear that all of this will affect their tourist industry?

Brian

I think they just want Kate and Gerry out of their country and close it all down.

Reporter

Now Kate and Gerry were planning to return this week-end were they not?. Whats the latest on that?

Brian

Inaudible...I don't know , we will have to wait and see.

Reporter

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 ?

Brian

I don't know,. I think she will be bewildered and be horrified that anyone can even think that of her, you know.

Reporter

What would you say to her if she were with you now?

Brian

I'd just hug her to death

Reporter

Do you want a break? are you O:K:?

Brian

No, No...I just want to hug her to death. She is so unprotected over there...you know..

Reporter

How do you get through it?

Brian

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...

Reporter

Do you believe that Madeleine will be found?

Brian

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.

Reporter

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 Madeleine disappearance?


Brian

It's unbelievable, disgusting and obscene. My daughters not like that , I know her.
