“In response to the recent story from the Associated Press regarding a statement made by Mr. Alvarez, we note that this statement was given more than two months after Michael Jackson’s death and is inconsistent with a statement he gave the police the day after Mr. Jackson was taken to the hospital. Further, his statement does not match up with much of the physical evidence found at the scene.
The defense would caution against putting too much emphasis on statements leaked by law enforcement or the District Attorney’s office. These leaks are provided piecemeal and are timed for effect.
Since Dr. Murray’s next court hearing is scheduled in ten days, we expect more leaks. However, we will not be trying this case in the press. We would ask the public to reserve judgment until after the People’s witnesses are placed under oath and subjected to the rigors of cross-examination. We are confident that a fair trial will ferret out the truth.” -Ed Chernoff

and CNN on the same:

Los Angeles, California -- Dr. Conrad Murray's defense team accused prosecutors Monday of leaking a police report to a reporter to force them to reveal their defense strategy in the involuntary manslaughter case stemming from Michael Jackson's death.

The "death investigation police report" includes a statement from a witness who said Murray stopped resuscitation efforts on Jackson so he could collect drug vials, said Miranda Sevcik, a spokeswoman for defense lawyer Ed Chernoff.

"We note that this statement was given more than two months after Michael Jackson's death and is inconsistent with a statement he (the witness) gave the police the day after Mr. Jackson was taken to the hospital," Chernoff said. "Further, his statement does not match up with much of the physical evidence found at the scene."

Sandi Gibbons, the spokeswoman for the Los Angeles District Attorney, said prosecutors did not provide the document to the Associated Press, which initially reported on the document.

"We haven't given anybody anything," Gibbons said.

Murray, the pop star's personal physician, has been charged with involuntary manslaughter in Jackson's death on June 25, 2009.

The Los Angeles coroner concluded Jackson died of "acute propofol intoxication."

Murray told investigators he gave Jackson propofol, a powerful anesthetic, to help him sleep.

The autopsy report said investigators found "multiple opened bottles of propofol" in Jackson's home.

The defense spokeswoman said "we can only assume" the investigation report was leaked by prosecutors since it was not done by the defense.

"These ridiculous tactics by the DA's office have no other purpose but to take a peek at our defense, because they aren't secure enough in their own case to convict Dr. Murray so they have to pull these little tricks to try to get to him," she said. "We're not taking the bait."

"We have an explanation obviously," Sevcik said. "But how much do we share at this point and how much do we share in court?" Chernoff said he expects more leaks from prosecutors as Murray's preliminary hearing, just 10 days away, approaches.

"We would ask the public to reserve judgment until after the people's witnesses are placed under oath and subjected to the rigors of cross-examination. We are confident that a fair trial will ferret out the truth," Chernoff said.
Murray, who was with Jackson when he died, is charged with involuntary manslaughter by acting "without malice" but also "without due caution and circumspection."

Jackson, who hired Murray as his physician while he prepared for what was to have been a series of comeback concerts, called the doctor to his rented Los Angeles-area mansion last June 25 at about 1 a.m., the report said.

"The decedent complained of being dehydrated and not being able to sleep," it said.

A police affidavit previously made public said that the doctor told investigators he gave Jackson three anti-anxiety drugs to help him sleep that morning.

Murray told them he had been treating Jackson for insomnia for six weeks at the time of the singer's death. He had given Jackson 50 milligrams of the sedative propofol diluted with the local anesthetic lidocaine every night via an intravenous drip.

The doctor told police he was worried that Jackson was becoming addicted to the drug and was trying to wean him off it.

During the two nights before Jackson's death, Murray said, he put together combinations of other drugs that succeeded in helping Jackson sleep.

The case will fall apart and CM will walk away a free man.  The statement by Alvarez was given for one reason and only one reason, to get CM off scott free. I think MJ put Alvarez up to the statement because it completly contridicts the Chef's statement that Prince and Paris NEVER went up the stairs.  She told her story months ago, and she had no reason to lie, however, Alvarez has only one reason to lie....to set CM free.

I worked in law for years and I can tell you, the defense will use Kai Chase, the chef to discredit Alvarez and all of his statements will be thrown out by any jury.

We have to realize that MJ has planned this whole thing down to the details. Why would Alvarez lie? From the way he's talking CM should have been charged with murder, but he wasn't. Why?  And remember Alvarez is still working with the family, so he's still under the guidance of MJ.

MJ is not going to let an innocent man go to jail. He has CM coverd and he just coverd him by having his right hand man Alvarez give a conflicting statement to gurantee CM is found innocnet.

She might have a reason to lie.  If you believe in the hoax then why not believe that Kai has an agenda as well?  To discredit Alberto Alvarez would be to discredit the children as well.
