CEOP Contrary To Your Email Madeleine McCann Is Not Presumed Abducted She Is Presumed Dead
She may be presumed abducted by the British Press but she is presumed dead by the investigating police force.
Are we to assume that the CEOP, an organisation that is charged with the protection of children, bases it's policies on what is written in the press and the word of the last person to see the child alive, her father Gerry McCann, soon to be a guest of the CEOP to talk on the subject of child abduction?
Are we to assume that this is your metric, the press and the still uncleared arguido, Gerry McCann?
Might I draw your attention to the intercalary report drawn up by Chief Inspector Tavares de Almeida of the investigating police force, but then perhaps this is unimportant to you, seemingly preferring as you do, to take the word of Gerry McCann over that of the investigators.
If that is the case, as it certainly appears to be, then you Jim Gamble as CEO and your organisation needs to be urgently investigated as to it's true aims, as equally does your fitness to head this organisation.
The email below was sent in reply to an enquiry as to why Gerry McCann had been invited to speak at a meeting of the CEOP.

RE: Taken conference

Dear Mr xxxx
Thank you for your interest in the work of CEOP and your comments. We hope that the fact that you disagree with our choice of speaker at one of our conferences will not affect your interest in our work once you have read this message.
The courses and conferences which we run are mainly for the benefit of those working in law enforcement and public protection and, as a result, we invite a variety of speakers who have relevant knowledge or experience of the conference topic. The fact that we invite a speaker does not mean that we endorse their views. Our conferences allow people to exchange and challenge views. The current position regarding the McCanns is that they are the parents of a missing child who is presumed to have been abducted: that being the case anything that Gerry McCann has to say will be of interest to those who work in this area and will attend the conference.
I hope this clarifies our position in relation to Gerry McCann’s presence at the conference.

For the attention of the
Criminal Investigation Coordinator
From everything that is exposed, the process files result in the following:
A) the minor Madeleine McCann died in apartment 5A at the Ocean Club resort in Praia da Luz, on the night of the 3rd of May 2007;
B) a simulation of an abduction took place;
C) in order to render the child’s death impossible before 22H00, a situation of checking of the McCann couple’s children while they slept was made up;
D) Kate McCann and Gerald McCann are involved in the concealment of the cadaver of their daughter, Madeleine McCann;
E) at this moment, there seem to be no strong indications that the child’s death was not the result of a tragic accident, yet;
F) from what has been established up to now, everything indicates that the McCann couple, in self-defence, doesn’t want to deliver the cadaver immediately and voluntarily, and there is a strong possibility that it was moved from the initial place of deposition. This situation may raise questions concerning the circumstances in which the death of the child took place.
Therefore, we suggest that the case files are sent to the Republic’s Prosecutor, in the Lagos legal district, for:
G) a possible new questioning of the arguidos Kate and Gerald McCann;
H) an evaluation of the measure of restraint to be applied in this case;
During the house search at the McCann couple’s residence, a diary style manuscript was found, already photocopied, possibly authored by Kate McCann; admitting that it may contain information that may help to reach the material truth of facts, WE PROPOSE THAT:
I) the photocopies of said document are presented to the illustrious Judge for the purpose of its apprehension, if legal, its translation and eventual collection of information to be included in the process files, as necessary for the investigation.
At this date, I subject the case files to your appreciation, for you to determine whatever you may see as convenient, hence I open:
On the tenth of September, two thousand and seven
Tavares de Almeida
