As it of interest to the ongoing investigation NUIPC 201/07.0 GALGS which is investing the ABDUCTION of the English girl Madeleine McCann, we URGENTLY ask that a request is made to the competent authorities for the following:

- The telephone operators TMN, Vodaphone and Optimus be asked for the preservation and conservation in digital format (CD or DVD) of all the information relating to MOBILE PHONE TRAFFIC, including roaming calls, with an indication of the mobile phone numbers, date and time of the telephone conversations that took place on 2, 3 and 4th May 2007 with respect to the mobile phones that cover the following geographical locations:

Apartment:

Tapas Restaurant

Both locations are situated in the OC resort next to Rua Agostinho da Silva and Rua Dr Francisco Gentil Martins in P da L.

PJ mobile phone analysis relation
document

This missive from Lisbon, an Analysis Report dated 29 May 2007, starts by saying
that "competent correlations and analyses" have been done on all calls made in
Praia da Luz during 2, 3 and 4 May 2007 based on information furnished by the
three phone companies.
From that preliminary study two sets of calls seen during the "critical period",
understood to be between 20h00 and 22h00 on 3 May 2007 immediately stand
out:

- Number 916... (unknown user), between 20h39 and 21h15, received 5 (five) connections from 969... ("Porto das Grutas - Sociedade Imobiliaria - Turistica");

- this same number (unknown user), at  21h01 and 21h16 also received two calls from an Irish number, 353872... (whose user can be determined if justified).

Widening the analysis period it can seen that:

- on that same day, at 17h40 and 17h48, the "Porto das Grutas" number made two calls to that Irish number (whose user can be determined if justified);

- also on that day, at 10h49 that Irish number (whose user can be determined if justified) made one call to number 916... (unknown user);

- at 11h52, the "Porto das Grutas" number made one call to the (unknown user) number.

Conclusion

From the present preliminary analysis the crossing between the three numbers above indicating the existence of knowledge/relationship between the respective users, [
but] not knowing yet the basis or motive for those contacts established.

It is suggested that the (unknown user) be traced and the object and motive of the above contacts be determined to discern the possible involvement in, or complete lack of knowledge of the callers about, the events under investigation.

Service information 17 Sept 2007 re: McCann and Tapas group telephone traffic

[
In summary]

Because it has become necessary in this case to analyse telephone traffic of the family, the friends and other telephones verified as being
[somehow] related to the events of 3 May 2007, and given the urgency of the investigation, I venture to suggest that, with the competent judicial authority, the following be requested as soon as possible:

1 - the complete lists from 28 April to 9 September 2007 of all telephone calls made and received, including cell mast contacts, and SMS and MMS messages complete with content thereof, for the following telephone numbers [British numbers of the nine adults and one that sent G.McCann 14 SMS messages on 2 May and 4 more the day after the disappearance.

2 - the complete list of calls made and received from 20h00 on 3 May to 12h00 on 4 May 2007, including cell mast contacts, SMS and MMS message and contents for the following mobile phones [Ocean Club reception; Ocean Club manager S.B.; GNR Lagos police station];

3 - the complete list of calls made and received from 20h00 on 3 May to 12h00 on 4 May 2007 for the following fixed service phones [Ocean Club reception; GNR Lagos police station];

In equal manner, I venture to suggest that, with appropriate legal authority, the content of the computer disk in the portable computer hired and used by G.McCann after the disappearance of his daughter, and which was voluntarily delivered to this police force by its owner, N.J.S.Ferreira, for the conduct of any examination that may be necessary.
I submit the above, Sir, ...

Subject: Investigation into the Disappearance of Madeleine McCann


Within the scope of the investigation identified above into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann it has become necessary to proceed to analyse the telephone traffic information of the McCann couple and the friends who were on holiday with them at the Ocean Club, Praia da Luz.

Therefore, given the urgent nature of the current investigation I suggest that the following be requested from the competent legal authorities as quickly as possible:

1. The 3 national mobile telephone operators (TMN, Vodaphone and Optimus) be requested to provide digital support (CD or DVD) with the complete listings of telephone traffic referring to the calls received and made during the period of time from 28th April 2007 t0 9th September 2007 including mobile phone location and trace back, as well as roaming calls and SMS and MMS messages and their respective contents for the following phone numbers:

- 00447786986188 Gerald McCann
- 00447903108397 Kate Healy
- 00447748844837 David Payne
- 00447796272586 Fiona Payne
- 00447790327853 Diane Webster
- 00447713258795 Russell O’Brien
- 00447808584191 Jane Tanner
- 00447771591456 Matthew Oldfield
- 00447818520047 – telephone number that has not yet been identified, which on 2nd May 2007 sent 14 written SMS messages to Gerald McCann and another 4 on the day following Madeleine McCann’s disappearance.

2. The telephone operator TMN should be asked for digital support (CD or DVD) with the complete telephone traffic listing referring to calls received and made during the period between 20.00 on 3rd May 2007 and 12.00 on 4th May 2007 including mobile phone location and trace back, as well as calls in roaming and SNS and MMS messages and their respective contents, for the following mobile numbers:

- 969787045 - belonging to the reception of the Ocean Club.
- 964098114 - belonging to the manager of the Ocean Club
- 962093051 - belonging to the Lagos GNR station

3. 3. The telephone operator Portugal Telecom should be asked for digital support (CD or DVD) with the complete telephone traffic listing referring to calls received and made during the period between 20.00 on 3rd May 2007 and 12.00 on 4th May 2007 including mobile phone location and trace back, as well as calls in roaming and SNS and MMS messages and their respective contents, for the following fixed lines:

- 282771000 - belonging to the reception of the Ocean Club
- 282762809 - belonging to the Lagos GNR station

In the same way I suggest that the competent legal authorities be asked for authorisation to proceed with the analysis of the content of the hard disk of the portable computer, Sony, model Vaio, hired and used by the arguido Gerald McCann after the disappearance of his daughter. The computer was voluntarily handed into this police force by its owner, so that we could carry out the necessary examinations.

I submit this request for your consideration.

Signed

Inspector Ricardo Paiva
