Carter-Ruck demands immediate removal of 'abduction scenario' article from Madeleine Foundation.org website
By Tony Bennett, Madeleine Foundation
In a letter dated 5 February 2010, Carter-Ruck have asked us to 'immediately' remove the article on our website, by Barbara Nottage, titled "How did the alleged abductor snatch Madeleine in a time slot of no more than 3-4 Minutes?"Their letter claims that this article "implies that our clients have lied and that their daughter was not abducted" and is therefore "highly defamatory, casting (as it does), very serious doubt on the suggestion that Madeleine could indeed have been abducted".
We are considering our formal response urgently.
The letter is addressed to me personally and I have replied to Carter-Ruck dated today [8 February 2010]:
