I thank you for that very interesting link, Photon! :D
"In 2000 Tom sold Mentorn to the Television Corporation PLC where he became Group Director... Jan 2004 he left...."
...so he upheld, obviously, his links with Mentorn! I suppose in the Meeja World everyone knows someone or other, but it is especially interesting in this case, in this thread even, that the makers of the 30 April programme to mark the year-long anniversary of the disappearance of the child, have connections to a person who noiselessly dropped out of being Fund Spokesperson.

Whenever it happens - and I doubt that it will be before next year - there will be virtually no detail in the accounts.

Almost certainly only an unaudited balance sheet with a few notes attached will be submitted to Companies House.
Nothing more than this will be required.

MADDIE FUND PAYS McCANNS' MORTGAGE;
Donations to help finance hunt for missing girl are used to cover parents' living costs

BYLINE: Vanessa Allen

SECTION: 1ST; Pg. 1

LENGTH: 695 words


KATE and Gerry McCann have used the £1million Find Madeleine fund to pay their mortgage, it was revealed yesterday.

Fund organisers refused to say how much had been spent but confirmed that money donated by the public was made available for the family's living expenses. Neither has worked since Madeleine vanished on May 3, although Mr McCann is due to return to his £75,000-a-year post as a hospital consultant this week.

Mortgage repayments on the couple's £500,000 detached home in Rothley, Leicestershire, are believed to be £2,000 a month.

The Find Madeleine fund, which has received more than £1.09million in donations from all over the world, was set up primarily to fund a publicity campaign after the little girl vanished on May 3.

It also met legal fees involved in setting up the not-for-profit business, which does not have charitable status.

But the fund's directors - who include colleagues, friends and relatives of the McCanns - ruled that they cannot use it to pay the legal team defending them against Portuguese allegations that they were involved in Madeleine's disappearance.

That has been met by a separate fund, using donations from wealthy benefactors including Sir Richard Branson. The salary of the McCanns' spokesman Clarence Mitchell is paid by another millionaire, double-glazing tycoon Brian Kennedy.

But the Find Madeleine fund has paid for other staff, including former campaign manager Justine McGuinness, In the weeks after Madeleine's disappearance it paid for her parents' campaign trips to Madrid, Amsterdam, Berlin, Washington DC and the Moroccan capital, Rabat.

It was revealed last month that about £300,000 had been spent, and a further £80,000 was paid out this month for a new publicity campaign in Portugal, Spain and Morocco. Donations have slowed dramatically, however, since the McCanns, both 39, were made official suspects in the case.

Exact details of where the money has gone will not be disclosed until the end of the financial year when the accounts are made public. Fund officials said an administrator has been appointed to ensure 'the highest standards of transparency and accountability'.

Mr Mitchell said last night: 'The fund exists to support Kate and Gerry where their living costs would become difficult. 'Gerry is going back to work this week and they hope they will not have to rely on it for their living costs for much longer.' The McCanns have said any surplus money from the fund would be given to charities to help families of other missing children.

Friends of the McCanns have said they are anxious to keep the fund's money for the campaign to find Madeleine. They denied Mr McCann was returning to work for financial reasons, insisting he wanted to regain a 'sense of normality'. He has been on unpaid leave and his wife, a part-time GP, has not been paid while she has been off work.

It is understood that Mr McCann will initially work three half-days a week at Leicester's Glenfields Hospital and will not have any direct contact with patients until his employers believe he is ready. His return has been approved by the General Medical Council, which regulates the medical profession, but a senior heart specialist warned last night that it could put patients' lives at risk.

The consultant, who did not wish to be named, asked: 'How will he be able to concentrate on his work with his daughter missing? It is a high-pressure job and you have to make difficult decisions. I can tell you from personal experience that if your mind is not totally on it, it is hard.

'If he is going to be doing procedures where you have to totally focus, the only way you can do it is compartmentalise and if you can't do it, it could be very difficult. He could break down and make a mistake.'

The group Patient Concern said Mr McCann should be monitored for at least three months and the public should be able to choose not to be treated by him. Director Roger Goss said: 'It's a good idea he is allowed back, but he should be monitored to ensure he is all right.

'Patients should be allowed the option of not being treated by him while the case has such a high profile. I know it sounds discriminatory but it is not unreasonable.'

"MADDIE'S PARENTS PLAN £2M FILM DEAL;
McCanns warned of public backlash after talks with agents and movie company Madeleine: 'We would be naive not to ask for cash

BYLINE: Vanessa Allen

SECTION: 1ST; Pg. 1

LENGTH: 814 words


KATE and Gerry McCann could make £2million from a film deal over the story of their daughter's disappearance, it was claimed yesterday.

Representatives of the couple have begun negotiations with the world's largest entertainment agency, IMG, over selling the rights to their story.

They hope a lucrative deal would fund the continuing search for Madeleine amid fears that the £1.2million raised from public donations will run out within months.

But there were warnings that the extraordinary move risks a backlash against the couple - who are both still police suspects in the case - if they are perceived to be cashing in on the eight-month tragedy.

So far the McCanns, both 39, have turned down offers from big-name chat shows and television dramas as they were anxious to avoid being seen as celebrities.

However the flood of donations after Madeleine went missing on May 3 slowed to a trickle when they were named as suspects in September.

The couple's spokesman Clarence Mitchell confirmed that their representatives began talks with IMG last month, and said they would consider only 'something done sensitively and considerately'.

At the same time, however, Portuguese police are preparing to fly to Britain to oversee fresh interviews with the couple and the group of seven friends who were on holiday with them in Praia da Luz when Madeleine vanished. Even now, leaks from inside the inquiry have suggested that police believe they have enough evidence to charge the couple, possibly with 'accidental homicide', hiding a body or faking a crime. A publicist, who asked not to be named because of the sensitivity of the high-profile case, said: 'It seems extraordinary to be negotiating film rights while they are still suspects in the investigation. It's a huge risk.' The McCanns set up the Find Madeleine fund in May to finance the search for their four-year-old daughter.

It has been used to fund a private detective agency, Metodo 3, and to pay their living costs while they both took extended unpaid leave from their jobs as doctors. But it hit controversy last year when it was revealed that they had used the public donations to pay two £2,000 instalments of the mortgage on their £500,000 house in Rothley, Leicestershire, . The directors of the fund - mostly friends and colleagues of the McCanns - control how the money is used.

They are due to meet today and are expected to discuss the film deal proposal. If the deal goes ahead with IMG, it would involve the same team which made Touching The Void, the award-winning drama-documentary about two British mountaineers' fight for survival in the Peruvian Andes. It interspersed interviews with the mountaineers, Joe Simpson and Simon Yates, with a dramatic reconstruction of events, using actors. A film about the McCanns' search for their daughter could use a similar format, but only if Mr and Mrs McCann were formally cleared as arguidos, official suspects, in the inquiry. While they remain arguidos they are banned from speaking publicly about the events of May 3 and the police investigation.

The company which made Touching the Void, Darlow Smithson Productions, has sent Mr and Mrs McCann a tape to show them how it would treat their story. A spokesman said the firm 'had a preliminary meeting with representatives of the McCanns about the possibility of an observational documentary following the ongoing search for Madeleine. 'Discussions are still at a very early stage and the issue of money has never been raised.' Jonathan Dean, of the magazine Total Film, said he believed the movie rights could go for up to £2million. Disgraced banker Nick Leeson earned a reported £450,000 when he sold the rights to his autobiography, Rogue Trader.

Offers to Austrian kidnap victim Natascha Kampusch were said to have topped £1million. Clarence Mitchell said: 'We've not agreed anything, we're not about to sign anything. We like the proposal, we thought it was fair, but there are others.' He added: 'It would be commercially naive if we did not ask for a donation to the Madeleine fund. We would be giving up the rights to a lot of money which could help to find her. 'Any money raised that way would go to the fund, which Kate and Gerry do not control.

This is not about personal gain for them. Madeleine's Fund is spent on investigators and advertising. It's dwindling. The money is going. I would imagine we've got a few months left. It's not going to last the year unless we get more money in.' Mr Mitchell said a book deal was also being considered 'at some point down the line'. He confirmed reports that one of the directors of the fund, former GMTV presenter Esther McVey, had resigned from the board, but denied it was because of any rift with the McCanns. He said she wanted to concentrate on her role as a Conservative parliamentary candidate and was also about to start studying for a demanding MBA qualification.

Hello ...first time I've read all that gosh it makes me mad :x
Can anyone explain please (sorry if you have already discussed this) did the Mccanns 'go sick' at first.....the 'normal' person would surely??
did they then take 'compassionate leave'??
Or from the start was it unpaid leave?
would have thought the types of careers they are in would have provision for 'pay' during such a CLOSE family crisis?
Or even their mortgage/insurances would have some inbuilt plan?
It all makes me sick certainly seems like a 'company' not a charity but then the whole thing is LUDICROUS!

Hi Amber08!

Spokespeople of the McCs have always said that Gerry has taken unpaid leave. However, a number of posters have pointed out that he would be entitled to 6 months sick pay at full salary after which a further 6 months on half salary. Consequently his return to work on 1st November (i.e. after 6 months) was considered significant. I think it is generally believed that Gerry would have been on sick leave rather than unpaid leave. Kate situation is different - as a locum, she is not entitled to either holiday or sick leave. However, her salary would have been significant even though she was only working one and a half days per week (and could have been around £30,000 per year). In the Vanity Fair article, Auntie Phil said that Kate only worked for the money - they would struggle on Gerry's salary of £75,000 (+ private practice income) alone.

Justine McGuinnes first spilled the news about the mortgage payments. CM was just pointing out that it was within the fund remit to do so.

Another fund expense.

Gerrys Blog - 22nd Aug.

I had another early morning drive to the airport- I could almost do it with my eyes shut. After dropping the kids off we had some photos taken with the results of a survey of UK and European parliament MP's. The survey results, commissioned by the find Madeleine campaign, will be published tomorrow and demonstrate strong support for changes in European legislation following Madeleine's abduction.

Kate is keen to get in touch with a very nice mum, who she spoke with at the toddler pool in the Ocean Club on Sunday 3rd June. She is sure you will remember the conversation and Kate would be grateful if you could get in touch at with her at campaign@findmadeleine.com

Enough evidence

"We have the conviction that the parents participated in the concealment of the body's girl and that she is dead. Although the existing evidences are not enough to accuse them of homicide. But we have more than enough evidence to accuse them of negligence. They know that and they don't return to Portugal probably because they are afraid of being arrested", said another judicial responsible connected to the investigation.
"It is not understandable the reason why they are all dragging their feet - including the McCanns - to participate in a reenactment that will probably last 6 hours".



If this from 24 houras is correct, the fund is a FRAUD.

Esther figured out which way the wind was blowing and bailed.

I would be interested in the legalities of declaring fraud. Do we have Gerry on tape anywhere saying it would be a charity or how it would be used. People were giving to a limited company without asking too many questions. Esther seems to have been overruled about using the money just to find Madeleine. She looked pretty stressed and upset on the tape.

In that video she talks about potentially setting up a separately administered legal fund. Does anyone know for sure if such a fund exists and if so who administers it?

Good question. That is the one where Branson kicked it off with 100,000. Brian Kennedy then stepped up to the plate. All we hear about is Kennedy but the original statement spoke of Kennedy and other wealthy benefactors. Kennedy seems to be the front man but who knows and they certainly are not making it public.

Good line for follow up investigation. I hope Scotland yard is following the money in this case.
