Letter of appeal to the Prime Minister of the UK

Mr. Gordon Brown, Prime Minister of the UK.
10 Downing Street
London, England. SW1A-2AA

Mr. Brown:

This is an appeal to you as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom on behalf of Madeleine Beth Mc Cann, a British citizen, age four, and currently in unknown whereabouts as a result of her abduction and disappearance on May 3, 2007 in Portugal. The earnest request consist of declaring the abduction and disappearance of Madeleine Mc Cann as a national tragedy, and make available the British intelligent services to step in the search of Madeleine Mc Cann until she is found either dead or alive.

Since Madeleine Mc Cann was abducted, eight months have passed without the Portuguese police and a private detective agency producing any solid leads that could result in the final solution of the case. On the basis of the Portuguese police modus operandi on the case since the very beginning, the widely publicised theory that the great blunders made by the Portuguese police in crucial moments, contributed to the commission of the heinous crime a success. Meanwhile, a Spanish private detective agency was hired to find little Madeleine Mc Cann but after at least four months no solid leads were produced. However, early after their incorporation to the search for Madeleine Mc Cann, the leader of the agency went around bluffing and arrogantly bragging about how much he knew on who abducted Madeleine Mc Cann, who is holding her, and that "she will be home by Christmas." All of these and other elements only contribute to create a situation of great disadvantage for the case to be resolved within reasonable time. Also, there are those who think that the Portuguese police are not competent to do what it takes to find Madeleine Mc Cann either dead or alive. In view of these facts, it is widely believed that the case needs the intervention of a police with highly recognised history of success in resolving difficult cases such as the present one, and the British intelligent services are fit for this task. Meanwhile, the lack of positive results in the present investigation pose serious threats of never finding the child due to the inadequate performance of those currently involved in the case.

Mr. Brown, I believe that bilateral relations between democratic States become fortify when the protection of basic human rights are defended and protected, therefor, there is no reason to believe that defending the right to freedom of an authentic British child age four, could affect in any way the relations between Portugal and the United Kingdom. Additionally, the act of kidnapping any person is a highly abominable crime, because it deprives the victim of a basic fundamental human right which is freedom. In reality, the condition of freedom is inherent by simply being a human alive, independently from whatever technical or political definitions there are. These and other important elements make this appeal to be a reasonable one which I and many others --perhaps even millions-- are asking you to grant.

Finally, Madeleine Mc Cann is an authentic Briton and an innocent child who deserves full recognition by the government of the British community, so I ask that you grant this appeal, please.

Respectfully Yours,

Your name
