On September 20th, 2007, Clarence Mitchell was interviewed on Radio Live in New Zealand by Marcus Lush.
Near the end of the interview Clarence says this:
I’d stress as well that the money that people have donated from around the world is only being spent on that campaign and Kate and Gerry’s legal costs and media management in the shape of me that’s all coming from the financial benefactors who are contributing quite separately so that anybody who has given money to help find Madeleine need have no fear that their money is being spent on lawyers fees or anything like that.
This statement is quite clear. “No money will be spent on lawyer’s fees or anything like that.”
After reviewing the money spent on lawyers in the Madeleine Fund accounts, it is quite obvious that Mitchell’s statement is a bare faced lie.
The interview used to be at this link: http://content.mediaworks.co.nz/radio/radiolive/Marcus/Sept/070920_LUSH_mccann.mp3
However, the link is now broken and you cannot hear the interview on either Media Works’ website or on the Marcus Lush website. The interview has been selectively removed because there are other Madeleine interviews on the Marcus Lush website.
Good job we kept a copy here!
