Keep saying these things, Victor, and you will be attacked constantly for telling the truth.
Those who criticise you seem blind to the fact that children must be protected from those who abuse or neglect them.
Only Madelaine McCann's abductor knows what has happened to her, but the entire world now knows that her parents made a conscious decision to leave her alone with her younger siblings.
Paint it how you wish, they knowingly broke the law. Had they returned sooner and found her safe and well the fact remains that they committed the crime of wilful neglect.
Read any law relating to the care of children and you will see the phrase 'the welfare of the child is of paramount importance'. In other words, above and beyond all other considerations.
