The Wallet histrionics

More on the wallet.

Gerry's 2nd Trip Home

Case Files Released: Portuguese Reports (1) ...... Gerry McCann had his wallet stolen during a brief trip to London, ... One picture is said to show Madeleine at 15-months-old while the other was taken in church more recently. - En caché

Well girthed Aunt Phill wheeled out to explain the 'situation' the McCanns find themselves in. It was Phill who told about the 'jemmied window' it was Phill who told about ' the deal made with PJ' a blatant lie and it was Phill who told about the ' alleged stolen wallet' On all three occassions Phill has not been present they are the words from her deceptive little brother the great Gerry McCann.

According to Philomena McCann, Gerry's sister, "He bent down to put something in his rucksack and some dirty animal had the wallet out of his back pocket."

There have been a number of attempts by people to dissect Gerry's blogs. Quite a few people felt that he was writing them in some kind of code and used them to plant alibis and explanations - though to be honest I just found them rather dull, tedious and smacking of someone revelling in their self-importance.

The entry that I found most interesting is this one:
Day 47 - 19/06/2007 - Tuesday
Flew in to London to for a series of meetings. Helped a passenger on the flight who collapsed. He was ill enough to require a full assessment on arrival and went off to hospital in an ambulance.

Unfortunately shortly after arriving in London I had my wallet stolen which meant I was running late. I did manage to get to all my meetings which ran late into the evening. We had very good discussions regarding sustaining the search for Madeleine long term. The role for Kate and I in the campaign will not be nearly be so public. We have to balance any campaigning in the search for Madeleine with protecting Sean and Amelie and making sure their privacy is protected. We are exploring the use of new media and using local advertising, particularly in Europe. There will of course be event driven media exposure such as the balloon launch on Friday 22nd. There are several other very good ideas being developed and a few large companies are willing to help us.

The man who apparently received medical assistance has never been publicly identified.

And Gerry has his wallet stolen. Not lost. Stolen. But no more details given.

And then... hurrah! The wallet has been returned.

Day 57 - 29/06/2007 - Friday
Early rise this morning dropping off and picking up good friends from the airport. One of our friends from Amsterdam, who has been actively campaigning to publicise Madeleines disappearance, dropped in to see us for a couple of hours since he is on a golfing trip in the Algarve.

Our friends brought back my wallet which had been returned, needless to say minus the Sterling, although all my cards and €30 were still in it! It is good to have my driving license back and one or two other important things.

Can't quite put my finger on it, but I think it reads oddly.

NO ONE BUT NO ONE WHO STEALS A WALLET WOULD RETURN MONEY OF ANY what were the histrionics really all about? There was according to Gerry a photograph of Madeleine in a church in his wallet...this photograph has never been shown to the public unless the McCanns are holding it back for the simple reason the photograph is of Madeleine inside the church in PDL...the church McCann claimed he did not know where it was the night May 3rd.

Gerry McCann: 'Delighted'
Madeleine McCann
Three favourite pictures of Madeleine McCann have been returned to her father
Treasured photos of Madeleine McCann stolen from her father have been returned.

Gerry McCann, 39, was distraught when a thief took his wallet from his back pocket during a brief trip to London a fortnight ago.

As well as cash and cards, it contained his three favourite pictures of four-year-old Madeleine. They have never been seen in public and there are no copies.

But after Mr McCann and his wife Kate made an emotional appeal for its return, the wallet and photos were sent anonymously to their home in Rothley, Leicestershire.

Yesterday a friend returned them to a "delighted" Mr McCann in Portugal at the Algarve resort of Praia da Luz, where Madeleine was snatched from her bed on May 3.

Brian Kennedy, Madeleine's great uncle, said: "Either someone with a conscience has realised who they stole it from, or it was discarded by the thief and sent to us by someone who found it.

"It's a bit of good news, which we haven't had for some time."

Today the McCanns moved out of the Portuguese holiday resort from where their daughter was abducted - 60 days after she disappeared.

The family have set up home in a private property nearby.

They stayed at the Mark Warner Ocean Club resort in the Algarve town of Praia da Luz for nearly two months, but the start of high season meant they had to find somewhere else to live.

The family had based themselves in one apartment and used a second as an office, from which to run the campaign to find their four-year-old daughter.

A spokeswoman for the family said they were taking thousands of letters and cards of support with them to the new house.
An endless stream of messages have been sent to the couple as they wait for any breakthrough in the hunt for their daughter.
The McCanns now meet the Portuguese Policia Judiciaria (PJ) on a regular basis, but despite an extensive investigation there have been no significant developments in the case.

Leaving the holiday complex today is the first sign that life is starting to move on.

"Obviously, like any family, packing up and moving is a very difficult time," their spokeswoman said.

"The amazing thing has been moving all the letters of support, there have just been thousands of them.

"Every single one has been boxed up and moved with them. It has been so uplifting for Kate and Gerry to know that so many people have prayed for them, are supporting them and hoping Madeleine comes home safely."

Mr McCann's pickpocketed wallet was initially sent to the family's former address, which was listed in the wallet, before being forwarded to their new home. There was no note inside and £100 in cash was missing.
However documents contained in the wallet, including Mr McCann's credit cards and driving licence, and 30 euros were returned.

Mr McCann was pickpocketed at a cash machine at Waterloo station in Central London on June 20. He had arrived in the capital on a two-day visit to interview candidates to be Madeleine campaign manager.

Meanwhile, a Portuguese woman accused of trying to extort the £2.5 million reward money for Madeleine by offering information about her whereabouts was freed from court in Spain last night.

Aurora Vaz, 54, and her millionaire Italian boyfriend Danilo Chemello, 61, were arrested at their luxury villa in Sotogrande, near Gibraltar, last week.

Chemello was remanded in custody following the closed hearing at San Roque. A decision on any charges will be taken later.
