Metodo3 the infamous Spanish detective agency involved in searching for Madeleine McCann was today accused by the Spanish Attorney Generalâs Office of squirreling other peopleâs nuts away for a rainy day.
The âcrackâ detective team â and who can forget that one of their directorâs stands accused of importing crack cocaine stuffed in frozen prawns, continues to amuse us with its antics.
According to the Attorney Generalâs Office note, the Catalan government, in recent years, have ordered and paid for a significant number of reports that seem irrelevant, citing, for example, a âsurvey into the socio-economy of a hazelnut farmâ ordered from the detective agency for the modest (???)sum of 30,000 euros. The resulting survey, according to El Confidencial was copied word for word from the Internetâ¦â¦â¦! Wherever could they have got the idea for this âdodgy dossierâ from.
Metodo 3 has already been linked to other scandals connected to the political and the financial world, and, recently, their work in investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, where one of the senior employees, Antonio Jimenez, was accused of having driven several British journalists to meet previously paid witnesses, who had allegedly seen Madeleine in Morocco. Jiminez was subsequently arrested for theft and cocaine trafficking.
The Attorney Generalâs Office say the total amounts involved in the misappropriation of funds and money laundering could be âcolossalâ.
Wire tapping, suitcases full of âcuddle-catsâ as they drive British journalists to meet paid informers, cocaine stuffed prawns, a Spanish debt collecting agency with no previous record of finding lost children, and now plain ânutsâ â how on earth did the McCannâs end up paying the hard earned pennies of widows and school children into the coffers of this agencyâ¦â¦it was Edward Smethhurst legal co-ordinator of Brian Kennedyâs many companies, past and present, who recommended them was it not? Or perhaps Clarence Mitchell, ex-senior employee of the media monitoring unit belonging to our own âdodgy dossierâ government?
Surely not sheer chance?
