 [[mccanns_extended_family|Madeleine McCann’s aunt]] explains why she has joined charity for missing people....“...For the McCanns, there was a desperate need for funds to pay for legal advice and a worldwide search. Patricia said: “It is so hard to watch Kate and Gerry push themselves constantly. **When Madeleine first went missing, family and friends had to step in to help them pay the mortgage. Money is constantly tight but they have to keep going.** They will never give up looking and that costs money. Families of the missing still need to pay bills while they search but there is no right to any financial help.” After Madeleine disappeared,​ Patricia took on the role of babysitter for Kate and Gerry’s twins, Sean and Amelie, now five, while their parents searched. As a result, there is a close bond between Patricia and the children....” [[mccanns_extended_family|Madeleine McCann’s aunt]] explains why she has joined charity for missing people....“...For the McCanns, there was a desperate need for funds to pay for legal advice and a worldwide search.

 From the directives of the fund it is clear, that the McCann'​s have legal access to donations from **“To provide support, including financial assistance, to Madeleine'​s family”**. From legal construction __there is no limit__ given (in any percentage) how much money may be taken for personal issues. Thus in principle any amount may be extracted legally for personal income. As it is no charity, and never was, it is also not forced to give detailed accounts of the use of special amounts of money. Just an oversight in terms of expenditures and incomes, this is roughly the bulk in- and out of money, is legally needed. From the directives of the fund it is clear, that the McCann'​s have legal access to donations from **“To provide support, including financial assistance, to Madeleine'​s family”**.

-Another income to the McCann'​s stems from regular **libel payouts** so e.g. **£55,​000** in libel damages from the ->​[[http://​www.bbc.com/​news/​uk-29470599|Sunday Times]] in 2014 and **£550,​000** libel damages from Express Newspapers in 2008. They also were donated the Tapas Seven **£375,​000** in libel damages from Express Newspapers. This is achieved by [[carter_ruck|Top-libel lawyers of Carter Ruck]] which may also be paid legally from the Fund's donations as it states. They also paid ->[[http://www.mccannfiles.com/id275.html|other prominent PR firms]] like [[bell_pottinger|Bell Pottinger Group]] and "​Hanover"​ to fit their public appearence.+Another income to the McCann'​s stems from regular **libel payouts** so e.g. **£55,​000** in libel damages from the ->​[[http://​www.bbc.com/​news/​uk-29470599|Sunday Times]] in 2014 and **£550,​000** libel damages from Express Newspapers in 2008.

-See e.g. ->[[http://www.mccannfiles.com/id89.html|Express Group Apology]]: (Magazine Public Eye): //​“...Although Dirty Des's lawyers offered £250,000 in an attempt to settle quickly, the **McCanns declined and insisted on £1m per newspaper - a total of £4m,** covering the daily and Sunday versions of the Express and Star. Outside legal experts consulted by Desmond have reported back to him: "​You'​re f*cked."​ That should, of course, be "​Carter-F*cked"​ - for Kate and Gerry McCann have indeed turned to Britain'​s most aggressive libel lawyers in their attempt to stem the flow of nonsense written about them....The Mcs have hired Peter Carter-Ruck and Partners. For those who don't know, this means they are really desperate....”//​+See e.g. ->[[https://www.gerrymccannsblogs.co.uk/Nigel/id89.htm|Express Group Apology]]: (Magazine Public Eye): //​“...Although Dirty Des's lawyers offered £250,000 in an attempt to settle quickly, the **McCanns declined and insisted on £1m per newspaper - a total of £4m,** covering the daily and Sunday versions of the Express and Star.

 Last but not least there are large incomes from [[kate_s_book|Kate'​s Book Madeleine]],​ so **1 millon pound** in advance from the publisher and another **550.000 pounds** for Uk-tabloid publishing of (parts of) the book. Regular payments from sellings in bookstores around the world add to this amount additionally. The amount is unknown, but with regular paid fees of about 5 pounds per book this must have added up today to **some millions** though. Last but not least there are large incomes from [[kate_s_book|Kate'​s Book Madeleine]],​ so **1 millon pound** in advance from the publisher and another **550.000 pounds** for Uk-tabloid publishing of (parts of) the book.
