In my opinion, yes you are. He has made statements to police and presumably doesn't want to do any more. That is his privilege

Just playing Devil's Advocate here, but wouldn't Gemma's (New?) Smithman inference instigate "another new lead". This (at asking for funds time of yea ) would constitute a further funding by the British Government, that would once again lead nowhere, but still keep our undercover forces in Portugal and elsewhere with a legitimate reason for being there. IMO.

I don't think there's much more Martin can do though, he's been to police and told them what he saw, he went back again to make a statement, its still on going so I think he's totally correct to stay quiet and not get involved. It's up to police.

Sorry, Froggy. To be clear I'm not talking about the Smith family statements/personal Police meetings that AFAIK were only ever made in 2007. I'm saying MS has over the past 10 years (RDH & BBC Panorama) tried to get retractions. IIRC the RDH one sort of worked? The Panorama one failed according to G O'D to which she fixed. From there we have the Tweet from Walker claiming she's a liar/fakenews/bad egg and TextUSA not sure about her either.

While all this goes on, nobody in the Police or media or anywhere else seem to care or have the back of the Smiths. The one set of witnesses to something that after nearly 11 years still stands and remains. This is very likely the key to the case yet there is this feeling the 'other side' is said to be trying to sabotage and destroy this with nobody seemingly trying to stop it (I'm talking about the PJ/GA/OG or someone else in authority)

Whenever others have said to have been harassed or wronged in this case (for good or ill!), it has quickly and publicly been sorted in the media/by authorities. Or a least big stink and forum arguments! lol!  

Quick query: I seem to remember that AR is said to have met with the Smiths twice in 2012/2013. Is this true and on the record? The below quote from Gemma's article reads to me like it did not.

The BBC even went as far as to make this claim. In a ‘Panorama’ programme broadcast in May 2017 to mark the tenth anniversary of Madeleine’s disappearance, presenter Richard Bilton told viewers that the Smiths had changed their mind about seeing Gerry McCann and now believed they had seen someone else.

In recent weeks, I have spoken to Martin Smith at his home in Drogheda. He told me he continues to stand by everything he said to police in 2007. At no point did he withdraw his statement or change his mind about the sighting.

Just seems odd there is no reference at all in the article to the more recent contact with AR/OG if it happened?

I sense your frustration, TTWO. But what you're describing is the whole case in microcosm - nobody with the power to knock heads together shows even the slightest inclination to so do.

Thanks to Dee Coy for bumping Pat Brown on the discussion thread. It just reminded me of the Smithman and Tannerman blogs she wrote....
