Madeleine is dead and the parents have, with the assistance of a person or persons unknown, disappeared her body.
It is some nine months later that the story of the McCanns unprecedented, uninvited and shameless intrusion into lives and grief of the Cortes family, appears in the press.
By this same time, all but the simple and the foolish know that the child is dead, that includes numerous sections of the British Government and undoubtedly Leicestershire Constabulary.
It also includes in the know, Clarence Mitchell, a multitude of things apart, he wouldn't be there in the first place if the McCanns were innocent.
The McCanns have been made, and still are arguidos at this time.
Such then is the setting which surrounds this insidious tale.
Having had their shabby and shameless plans to use, the then still unknown fate of little Mari Luz, thwarted, what then is the response from team McCann and the piece of detritus that speaks for them?
It is not as you might imagine, a sincere apology for their transparent, self serving efforts, to give their own case some legitimacy, by the crass and vulgar use of Mai Luz's image, no it anything but.
It is however, anything but, what you can imagine, it is to attack, in all their grief and anguish, the parents of Mari Luz Cortes, attacked I might add with a degree of hypocrisy that is not only unheard of, but is immeasurable.
These utterly shameless words, spewed out by this despicable creature are below, and it is these words that cumulate in something so vile, so abhorrent, that they make one wonder just how base, just how wretched is the specimen that uttered them.
"How can someone be furious with another person for wanting to help to find the daughter?", said and outraged Mitchell.
Do the world a favour Mitchell, contract something terminal and die, but do make it something as painful as it is slow.
As a man and as a human being, your worth is nothing.
McCanns spokesman regrets the reaction of Juan Cortés and says that the couple only wanted to help
"It is shameful that Mari Luz's father presents complaints"
It is "surprising and shameful that Mari Luz's father presents complaints about us in a press release". This was the reaction of Clarence Mitchell, spokesman for the McCanns when he was informed by the 24 Horas that the father of Juan Cortés does not authorise the distribution of the 18 thousand posters with the images of Maddie and the Spanish girl in Spain and Portugal.
"We regret the confusion. We only wanted to help Mari Luz's family and honestly we thought we had permission from the girl's father to this joint campaign", said Clarence Mitchell. The problem is that the 18 thousand posters were already sent by post, last Thursday to Spain. "Our only hope is that the owners of schools, restaurants and other public places are aware of the reaction of Mr. Juan Cortés and do not display the posters", said the spokesman of Kate and Gerry McCann.
"As I explained to you newspaper last Saturday, we did believe to have the permission of the Cortés family. Few days after the disappearance of Mari Luz, a Kate's friend that speaks Spanish contacted the father of the Spanish girl and told him about the intention of the McCanns in printing a poster of both children.
At that time Mari Luz's father said he would appreciate everything that the McCanns could do". Clarence Mitchell will now talk with Kate and Gerry about the situation and also with the volunteers that cooperated in the poster campaign. "How can someone be furious with another person for wanting to help to find the daughter?", said and outraged Mitchell. source Jona Morais
