Madeleine McCann: The Spanish Prisoner

by | 10th, June 2007

PAULO Reis writes from Portugal on Madeleine McCann and the Spanish hoax:

Antonio Toscano, the alleged “investigative journalist” who claimed to know the name of Madeleine’s abductor is an hoaxer who introduced himself as an expert in satanic cults in several interviews with Spanish newspapers an TV.

António Toscano was quoted, last week, by the Spanish daily “El Mundo”, saying that he his an “expert in missing children cases”. And yesterday, talking to a Portuguese newspaper, he claimed that his track record his so good that he “found 14 of the 15 missing children cases that he investigated”, during the last years.

Many Portuguese and British newspapers quoted the story published by “El Mundo”, but some of them wrote that Mr. António Toscano was a journalist working with the Spanish daily or a collaborator of that daily.

“Gazeta Digital” talked with Mr. Rafael Moiano, a journalist from “El Mundo” and he confirmed that Mr. Toscano was interviewed and the story was published last week, but denied any link between Mr Toscano and the newspaper: “Mr. Toscano is not a collaborator of ‘El Mundo’, we just published a story, last week, about its investigations.”

Any other journalists of questionable quality in Portugal?
