Day 64 - 06/07/2007 Friday
The major development today was the arrest of a 39 year old Dutch citizen in
for attempted fraud. The man had sent six e-mails saying he knew who had
Madeleine and where she was. He was demanding €2million for this information.
After being arrested he has admitted he did not have any information and was motivated by boredom and trying to extort the money. Eindhoven
This arrest, after cooperation between the Portuguese, British and Dutch police
forces, sends a clear message that this sort of crime is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. It also encourages Kate and I that all information about Madeleine coming through to the police in any European country will be taken seriously and rigorously evaluated.
