Anyway, after a few searches online, I found a answer to my questions. It seems that Mr. Alan
Johnson was also a very sensitive Interior Minister, who took a great care not to disturb some
people and be a nice politician, in their eyes. Like, for example, when he “blocked an
independent inquiry into Scotland Yard’s phone hacking investigation in 2009”, as the Leveson
Inquiry heard, last March (according to the “Mail Online”:
“Sir Denis O’Connor, the Chief Inspector of Constabulary, said he wanted to examine the case because it raised ‘substantial public confidence issues. But he told the inquiry that his proposed review ‘never really got off the ground’ because the then Home Secretary Alan Johnson had ‘no appetite’ for it.”
I still have a question: what changed the former Minister’s “appetite” and made
him be so enthusiast about the necessity of putting pressure over the Portuguese Government
(????) to reopen Maddie’s case?
