#McCann : Who briefed Kate Mccann to discount the Haut de La Garenne abuse scandal ?

The dogs: We realise that the behaviour of the dogs was the turning point in the investigation for the PJ. The use of dogs has proved to be problematic and unreliable in previous cases




(please refer to the Jersey ‘Haut de La Garenne’ case and other research published about their use and reliability).

It is vital to note that alerts by such dogs are classified as intelligence rather than evidence, as police officers familiar with their use will verify. These alerts must be supported by forensics in order to be used as evidence. The results of the forensic examinations did not identify any blood or Madeleine’s DNA. To suggestor use the dogs´ reactions as evidence is simply wrong and abusive.
