From: Paolo Ferreira, Inspector
I bring to your attention that on the 20th September in the
morning and on his own initiative, Hoos Evert Hendrik appeared
before this police force (Dutch nationality, company Creon
Starlight Crematorio de Animais lda NIF 507045289, Monchique).
Hoos Evert Hendrik says that he is the owner of an animal
crematorium situated at the above mentioned address.
He referred to an article recently published in Correio da Manha
which mentioned suspicions that Madeleine McCann could have been
cremated in his crematorium.
He said that on the morning of 20th September, in other on the
day that he presented himself to the police, he found several
individuals circling and photographing the installations of the
crematorium, persons whom he approached and checked that they
belonged to the police force which had already visited site,
during a veterinarian inspection as a result of which the site
was closed and sealed.
Hooes Evert Hendrik came to the police with the aim of clearing
any doubts or suspicions that might exist regarding him, and
placed himself at disposal for any clarifications necessary with
the aim of lifting these suspicions as he confirmed that he had
nothing to do with the disappearance of Madeleine McCann,
adding, when questioned, that he did not know any members of her
family, neither her parents or anyone else related to them. He
said that all he knew about the case came from the press.
Hoos Evert Hendrik said that the crematorium had been closed and
sealed following an inspection in March 2007.
He asked us to go to the crematorium installations to check this
in situ to check that the seals had not been violated and to
inspect documentation with regard to the inspection and the
attitude taken by the authorities on that occasion.
On the afternoon of the 20th September, accompanied by my
colleague Ricardo Paiva, I went to the site in question and was
received by Mr Hoos. There we checked that in fact the
crematorium consisted of two ovens situated on land next to the
offices. Both doors to the ovens were sealed with aluminium tape
from the IGAE and the seals were seen to be intact. Labels on
the doors were also visible. We made a photographic report (in
Inside the office, namely a room equipped with a desk, Mr Hoos
gave us a copy of the Apprehension Notice issued by ASAE -
Authority for Food and Economic Safety, dated the 2nd March,
2007, which refers to the sealing of the ovens.
Mr Hoos added that after the sealing of the ovens the
possibility continued to exist, with recourse to this effect to
an incinerator of the municipal chamber of Lisbon. He proved
this fact by showing several invoices/receipts referring to
this. He said he would hand over copies of documents referring
to the activities he carries out.
