Same people questioned me, either in my blog or at one of many ongoing discussions in Anorak (like this one or this one), where I have been postings some comments, about the reasons I call Mr. António Toscano a hoaxer.

Well, here are ELEVEN GOOD REASONS, THE STRONGEST PRESENTED BY CLARENCE MITCHELL, SPOKESMAN OF MCCANN FAMILY, WHO TALKED WITH MR. ANTÓNIO TOSCANO:

The McCann’s spokesman Clarence Mitchell said Toscano had contacted the couple regarding The Frenchman and they passed on his contact details to cops. But he added: “At every stage Mr Toscano declined to provide a name for the suspect. This was both frustrating and potentially hurtful to Gerry and Kate.”

But Madeleine’s parents say Toscano refuses to answer any questions they put to him. They were said to be “driven up the wall” by Toscano’s claims. Family spokesman Clarence Mitchell said: “As soon as Mr Toscano contacted us via an intermediary we immediately spoke to him. At every stage Mr Toscano declined to provide a name for the suspect he believed was responsible for Madeleine’s abduction.This was both frustrating and potentially hurtful to Gerry and Kate. They were upset that this man appeared to be trying to give us important information but when asked the critical questions declined to do so.”

Last night the McCanns returned to Portugal from Morocco, where they had been raising awareness of Madeleine’s disappearance. Family spokesman Clarence Mitchell said: “We urge Mr Toscano to talk to the police directly and immediately.’’ Police said they would probe Toscano’s claims.

However Madeleine’s parents revealed that Toscano was interviewed, but refused to answer any questions. Family spokesman Clarence Mitchell said: “As soon as Mr Toscano contacted us via an intermediary we immediately spoke to him. At every stage Mr Toscano declined to provide a name for the suspect he believed was responsible for Madeleine’s abduction. This was both frustrating and potentially hurtful to Gerry and Kate. They were upset that this man appeared to be trying to give us important information but when asked the critical questions declined to do so.”

THE Maddie hunt switched to a paedophile kingpin dubbed The Frenchman last night. A Spanish investigative journalist said he was “100 per cent certain” the mysterious figure was the abductor. But Antonio Toscano claimed his attempts to give information to cops has been thwarted — by the POLICE themselves. He believes Maddie IS still alive and was snatched to order for wealthy paedophiles. (…) Toscano, 36, who met The Sun in Seville, Spain, yesterday, said: “I am absolutely certain that I know the name of the man who took Madeleine. He is a convicted paedophile known widely among child abuse networks only as The Frenchman. I have met him twice while investigating child pornography rings. “Madeleine is not the first child he has taken to order, but I don’t think he will have delivered her to his paymasters yet. He keeps them hidden for one to two months before delivering them. I think she is still alive.” (...) TV investigator Toscano, whose story was first published in Spain’s respected national daily paper El Mundo, also works as a private eye (...) Toscano claimed he has tried several times to give cops the information. But he added he is still waiting for Spanish officers to interview him as promised on behalf of the Portuguese. Last night, the journalist — who has cracked 14 missing children cases — offered his services free to Maddie’s parents Kate and Gerry McCann.

A SPANISH investigative journalist claimed yesterday he was “100 per cent certain” he knew the identity of Madeleine McCann’s kidnapper (...) Toscano insists he knows the full name of the pervert – nicknamed The Frenchman – and has tried to pass on the information to senior officers investigating Madeleine’s disappearance. He says he has still not been questioned by Portuguese police 12 days after he first alerted them (...) He said: (...) “I have spoken to the police in Spain and Portugal but they have still not checked out the information. The Portuguese police said they did not want me to tell them the name over the phone but they have not sent anyone to interview me (...) Toscano is a former Spanish TV reporter who specialises in child abduction cases. His claims were first published last week in respected Spanish daily newspaper El Mundo. He said: “I have been successful in 14 of 15 cases I have investigated. Unfortunately in the 15th case the girl was found dead. (...) Toscano insists he has tried in vain to make contact with Portuguese police. But police chief Olegario Sousa said: “We want to talk with him and if he came to Portugal I would set up an immediate meeting.”

“I have spoken to the police in Spain and Portugal but they have still not checked out the information. (...) I am fully aware that if I was not 100 per cent right the information I have revealed would be very upsetting to Madeleine’s family but I am certain that I am. “I believe she is alive and is probably being held in Portugal. The sooner this is investigated the better the chances of a good conclusion to this sad story. I just want the little girl to be returned safely to her family. I would offer my services to the McCanns if they asked me. I don’t want to make any money out of it. I would be willing to do it for free.”Toscano insists he has tried in vain to make contact with Portuguese police. But police chief Olegario Sousa said: “We want to talk with him and if he came to Portugal I would set up an immediate meeting.”

Anyone with information (about Madeleine) can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. If you are calling from Portugal call +44 800555 111.


(*)“Antonio Toscano is a serious and reliable journalist”, says Virgínia Lopez, the journalist who interviwed Toscano for the Spanish daily "El Mundo", the first newspaper to publish the story (and I imagine what "El Mundo" editor must be thinking, now, about his decision to allow it). But of course. Mr. António Toscano is a reliable journalist and my real name is not Paulo Reis, I’m Bill Gates and I’m just testing new Micrososoft software for blogging...

Dear Anonymous,

What about giving some evidence, also, instead of just calling me "an hoaxer"?
