McCann family to launch new legal battle using "Find Maddie" funds.

This is not a McCann bashing thread....

Madeleine McCann’s parents have launched a fresh legal battle to overturn a Portuguese court ruling that failed to clear them of involvement in their daughter’s disappearance.

They intend to finance it from the "Find Maddie" fund.

Is this right....should they use donated money to cklear their name?

I object to the whole idea....the money was donated by those wishing to help find Madeleine...not for the parent's to use in legal battles.

NO the fund was for trying to find the child not to clear the parents.

Re: McCann family to launch new legal battle using "Find Maddie" funds.

I saw a bit about this in yesterday's paper. Apparently that copper is planning on writing his second book about them too.

I don't know enough about their finances to comment on the money though.

Re: McCann family to launch new legal battle using "Find Maddie" funds.

I cannot give a simple Yes or No , The way i look at it is if they dont fight to clear themselves then a lot will believe they were involved and give up on looking for Maddie .
I suppose they have to use whatever money is available to them to prove that what the book states is false , and there is still hope of finding her alive .

Re: McCann family to launch new legal battle using "Find Maddie" funds.

I must admit to a feeling of unease every time I see pictures or tv footage of this family, the husband in the background, her twisted agonised face, as if she is the only mother ever to lose a child. But in their case they didn't lose a child, they abandoned a child and a nice little earner it has turned out to be for them.

Re: McCann family to launch new legal battle using "Find Maddie" funds.

If I gave I think I'd be a bit miffed if the money was used not to find the child. Usually there are strict parameters to what can be done with charitably given money, we had a fund for vet fees in a dog rescue I helped it was clearly unlawful for us to use it for publicity or anything other than medical help.

It's all about publicity I suppose, the more headlines they generate the more money from 'well wishers ' is generated.

I guess so I just don't understand though all the kids went missing before Madelaine and since never had half as much publicity.

They are excellent self publicists, and never far from the headlines.

Re: McCann family to launch new legal battle using "Find Maddie" funds.

Frankly I am sick of hearing about the McCanns - if they had looked after the poor little child properly they would not be in this situation.

My sympathies are with the child.
