I see what you mean. HB was really unhappy with the investigation in Portugal. She gave a very detailed description of what she endured and she even went public in 2015 talking about her rape. Nothing was followed up back then. She was very disillusioned until the rape of DM was made public. As a woman, I really cannot blame her for accusing someone directly even before that person is charged. It is the same with all victims who know or at least think they know the perpetrator. I find it a facet of human nature and I cannot condemn it.
However, the same happened with the mum of the girl who he supposedly sexually attacked on the beach. She recognised him and went to the media. Same with witnesses who had given detailed descriptions (CT comes to mind). I sincerely think it is just natural to want to blame someone specifically and especially when you (think you) have been a victim of that someone.
On your other point, this is mainly a problem of the media and not of the investigating officers. So I take no real issue with that. I am just waiting patiently for charges
To be clear, I am fine with public appeals for information by law enforcement - though i do find the German approach to this odd where the suspect is publicly accused based on secret evidence. This different to the UK and now what I am used to.
What I think is not great in terms of natural justice is HCW speculating on what charges may or may not eventuate in different matters, in international media.
Seek information on crimes sure. But charge people or not. I think the running commentary is odd.
