Will Star Witness Jane Tanner Be McCann's Downfall?

Or one of the others perchance?

Something to warm the cockles of your heart after yesterdays dismal day, Murat takes legal action against four Tapas.

Is this the way in, through the back door, will Gerry get thrown under the bus?

If it gets that far, who knows what might happen, Like we have been doing, we will have to wait and see. But would I be too extreme if I said the Portuguese Legal System, seems to me, to be little more than a front for other interests?

I do hope not.


Robert Murat is taking legal action against four of the McCanns' friends
Friday February 19,2010
By Daily Express Reporter BRITON Robert Murat, wrongly labelled a suspect in the Madeleine investigation, is taking legal action against four of the McCanns’ friends, it was revealed yesterday.

The estate agent has lodged a “criminal complaint” against Jane Tanner, 39, who claimed she saw a man carrying a child near the McCanns’ holiday apartment on the night Madeleine vanished.

A second complaint has been made against Ms Tanner’s partner, Dr Russell O’Brien, and Fiona Payne and Rachael Oldfield, also members of the so-called Tapas Seven.

It is understood that the complaints centre on allegations that the four gave evidence to Portuguese police which led to them making Mr Murat, 35, a suspect in the investigation.

The expat, who lived in Praia da Luz at the time, was found to have no involvement in Madeleine’s disappearance.

Details of the allegations, lodged at a court in Lagos in the Algarve, are unclear because under Portuguese law the parties involved cannot discuss them. Express

Yes, from the Express, perhaps they would like their money back.

Update: Anna Andress has a substantial article on the same.
