Christina Odone is a truly odious character.
In her Observer article today, she once again uses the McCann saga to push her somewhat warped view of The World.
She goes a whole step further, though, in making two comparisons.
Firstly, with Joanne Lees (of the Falconio murder) and, secondly, with Mersault (from L'etranger by Camus).
In the case of Joanne Lees she says '...Lees found herself a murder suspect. It didn't matter that she had been raped, tied up...'
Well, it's a lie.
(As was pointed out 'if she had been (raped) then the difficulties the prosecution had in proving the DNA evidence would have fallen away').
I am sure that Ms Odone was not thinking of the stress caused to the Lees Family who may just read The Observer of a Sunday.
She was only interested in fabricating something in support of her case.
At the very least she should offer an apology to Miss Lees.
Ms. Odone has been caught telling porkies before and even had to chutzpah to spin the story into a Guardian article.
The second comparison she made this time was between Mersault and Kate McCann.
Maybe, she hasn't read the book.
Mersault actually was the murderer.
