-**Waiting for Chance?**+**1.) Waiting for Chance?**
  
-If a case doesn’t move due to lack of knowledge or just lack of actual intention of the involved parties sometimes the best to do is indeed just waiting for changes. Often, sometimes by pure chance, there will arise a new push to the case by some occasion. This may be by political change as from changes of personal relations at the living circumstances of the known or unknown offenders as well. Indeed there are some chances of such things to happen in the case of Maddie. But waiting has one obstacle: The high possibility that one or more of the offenders out there will get away from it all just e.g. by dying from a natural reason in the meantime. Justice then just will come much to late.+If a case doesn’t move due to lack of knowledge or just lack of actual intention of the involved parties sometimes the best to do is indeed just waiting for changes.

 This was actually the state of the art at the time [[goncalo_amaral|Goncalo Amaral]] was dismissed from the case. The established [[policia_judiciaria_pj|PJ]]-files contain enough evidence to take the case to any European court with a good chance for a verdict. The files are still in this profound state. Taking them to court is still indicated, and in the actual state, would also provide a clean possibility for the McCann’s to get a certificate of innocence if there could not a verdict against them be substantiated. ​ This was actually the state of the art at the time [[goncalo_amaral|Goncalo Amaral]] was dismissed from the case.

 The indeed very unusual [[operation_grange|Operation Grange]] is often misunderstood in public as a solely quasi-“private” investigation paid by the public to support the McCann’s in their special version of the case. This is due to the fact that there is by far not done any official effort like this to any other similar case in the UK (see e.g. the [[ben_needham|Ben Needham Case]]). A fact which will have to be explained in the far future to the public regardless of the outcome either. ​ The indeed very unusual [[operation_grange|Operation Grange]] is often misunderstood in public as a solely quasi-“private” investigation paid by the public to support the McCann’s in their special version of the case.

   - That the purpose of the search will be seriously prejudiced if the police officer cannot have immediate access to the property upon arriving at the premises.   - That the purpose of the search will be seriously prejudiced if the police officer cannot have immediate access to the property upon arriving at the premises.
  
-This is but just the one side of the problem. The other side is the question, when will the police be forced from criminal or moral ethics to do such a house search? From the files and when the McCann’s got the status of suspects (arguido) September 2007, the case of “//A criminal offence of a sufficiently serious nature has been committed//​” was given for sure and substantiated by a lot of hard facts. It must be stressed here, that neither the hard facts have to, nor a house search does, prejudice any question of guilt in any way. But if such hard evidence for a serious crime is given, it is a must to do so. In September 2007 such a house search in Rothley was necessarily indicated, but it was never done. The question why, regardless of the question of guilt, has to be explained also in the far future to the Britisch public. ​Although ​today the effectiveness of such a house search in Rothley has to be questioned much, it is also known from forensic experience that even such “to late”-searches will have a good chance to be fruitful.+This is but just the one side of the problem.

 The same applies to the Interrogation of the whole [[tapas_9|Tapas-9-Group]] by British Police in the past (Leicestershire Police) as well as for new interrogations by Scotland Yard/​Operation Grange today. Although severely indicated there was never a strong cross examination of those central witnesses/​suspects by British police. It is late but not to late to catch up on this issue today. The same applies to the Interrogation of the whole [[tapas_9|Tapas-9-Group]] by British Police in the past (Leicestershire Police) as well as for new interrogations by Scotland Yard/​Operation Grange today.

 A real oddity in the case is the lack of photographs for the location [[praia_da_luz|Praia da Luz]]/​[[ocean_club|Ocean Club]] for the time of the evening [[3rd_may|3rd May 2007]]. Although today people are equipped very much with cameras, mostly digital, and also with cellular phones and smartphones with cams, there are still today no photos which show the Tapas Group and/or the McCann’s in the crucial five hours [[timeline|time between 17:30 and 22:30 latest]]. ​ A real oddity in the case is the lack of photographs for the location [[praia_da_luz|Praia da Luz]]/​[[ocean_club|Ocean Club]] for the time of the evening [[3rd_may|3rd May 2007]].

 Such photos could give indeed some very prominent evidence to the case. Especially the [[tapas_7|Tapas Group]] asserted to have not taken any photos in this time, also as a matter of fact was a severe forensic failure, the PJ didn’t take any photos on arriving at the scene, but took photos only after having evacuated the scene from people. Such photos could give indeed some very prominent evidence to the case.

-The question arises now, **does ​very exist anywhere photos taken by any tourist, employee of OC or Resident of PdL, who has taken photos at the time in or widely around the Ocean Club in PdL which could eventually show members of the Tapas group, especially Gerry McCann?** This would be crucial especially for a comparison with the testimonies of the Smith’s Sighting. A comparison which could then burden but also unburden the McCann’s.+The question arises now, **does ​there exist anywhere photos taken by any tourist, employee of OC or Resident of PdL, who has taken photos at the time in or widely around the Ocean Club in PdL which could eventually show members of the Tapas group, especially Gerry McCann?** This would be crucial especially for a comparison with the testimonies of the [[smiths_sighting|Smith’s Sighting]].
