Agree with a lot of the points but LOL at the UK government holding an inquiry into the West Yorkshire Police. Kangaroo court more like!
I have no idea if the parents are innocent, and agree there are odd things about the case that makes one wonder if Maddie died in an accident and they covered it up. But that is different than saying the child never existed.
It is possible for police to let a perpetrator fall through the cracks.Peter Sutcliffe, the Yorkshire Ripper, killed 13 women and injured 9 others between 1975-1980. West Yorkshire Police interviewed him 9 times over a 5 year period and didn't have a clue he was the ripper until he confessed to the crime. Following his capture the UK gov had an inquiry of the police force's investigation of the case, finding that it was mishandled.
The German police seem to have some evidence that points to this guy as a suspect and unlike the other parties, they don't have anything to prove. The Portuguese police apparently find the evidence compelling, too, which is interesting considering their focus on the parents over the years.
The ward of court thing was likely so they could petition the court to get access to police reports on suspects and then use that info to pursue their own leads. Otherwise the police would not provide information to them on an open case. It is an extreme approach but there is some logic to it.
This was the same government who allowed Sir Jimmy Saville to take over Broadmoor Hospital, despite being completely unqualified... and of course a known rapist of children and vulnerable adults!
Savile became great friends with Peter Sutcliffe in Broadmoor. One of Sutcliffes' victims was actually killed outside Savile's house in Yorkshire. Savile himself was a suspect in the Yorkshire Ripper case and had a dental impression taken for comparison with bite marks.
Does an honest government allow an unqualified DJ, who is a former Yorkshire Ripper suspect, and has dozens of rape and abuse accusations against him, to take over the country's leading mental institution?!!
Particularly when the institution houses the Yorkshire Ripper - the man Savile was once suspected of being!!
In my option they are evidence of different problems,
The ripper investigation tried to address issues with a police force that was making largely a good faith effort to capture the killer but failed due to organizational and operational issues, not necessarily because of corruption.
The jimmy savile affair was a true coverup, evidence of corruption in UK govt around child sex crimes committed by the famous and powerful.
