All of the Tapas are involved by the simple fact they have all lied. Two are only of interest. The witness statement of Dianne Webster and Russel O’ Brian. PJ statements and not the ones in Leicester.The Leicester statements have no value.
Dianne Webster, in her statement said she arrived with the Paynes approx. 21.00H. She does not recall, but thinks perhaps Gerry and Matt had not been in the Restaurant. I have no interest in Matt only Gerry. Gerry would be by now on his way to or in the apartment..We know this because he met with Jez Wilkins.
In this regard, asked specifically whether, on the journey to the restaurant, if they had passed either of the two individuals described in the preceding paragraph, she answered categorically not.
Questioned about the members who, during the dinner, had absented themselves from the restaurant, the witness says that, as she recalls, there were some people who left, failing to identify which, except for Russell who had left the restaurant and taken a little more time than usual due , from what she knows, his daughter being sick.
The question asked, she thinks that up to the date of the disappearance it had never happened that anyone had entered the apartment of another couple in order to check their offspring.
Nevertheless, it seems that the couple Payne and the witness, did not make any trips to apartments, because they had an intercom called the “baby monitor”, through which sounds or noises of the children could be heard.
Therefore, she can only say with precision that, at around 22.00 Kate McCann returned to the restaurant, seemingly in panic, communicating to others the fact of Madeleine’s disappearance.
Asked about the reaction of other members of the group when they heard the above from Kate, the witness says that everyone, except the witness, left the restaurant and went to the apartment of the couple McCANN in order to find out what was going on.
In turn, as relates to her, the witness says she stayed at the restaurant for about five minutes, then, noting that the remaining members of the group had not returned, she followed in the direction of the McCANNS’ apartment.
In that apartment she found that KATE was completely in panic, in “state of shock “.
Because she was asked, she states that she entered the apartment by the sliding glass door of the patio at the back, which gives access to the lounge. Then she went to the children’s bedroom, noting that there she found KATE and the twin siblings of MADELEINE .
However, she wants to stress that immediately afterwards, she went outside the apartment in order to ascertain whether she would be able to raise the shutters by hand from the outside, and found it was impossible for her. Consequently she infers that at the time of her arrival at the apartment the window would have been closed already.
Because she was asked, she says she does not know if the window, and the shutter, of the couple’s bedroom were open or not, in that she did not enter that room.
After this time she returned to the restaurant to get her handbag as well as the MCCANN couple’s camera and “baby monitor” of her daughter, and was soon back again in the apartment.
