In articles published
in September and November last year we suggested that the holiday
companions of Kate and Gerry McCann might have covered up the true facts
concerning Madeleine McCann's disappearance and/or misled the
authorities investigating her disappearance
We also suggested that the McCann's?
friends had been identified as potential suspects.
We now accept that these suggestions should never have been made and
untrue We apologise to Jane Tanner .
Russell O'Brien, Fiona Payne, David
Payne, Matthew Oldfield, Rachael Oldfield and Diane Webster to whom we
have agreed to pay substantial damages which they will be donating to
the Find Madeleine Fund.
