Gonçalo Amaral Interview by Carlos Saraiva

 I must thank to  My sister J. by the big help ! 

Weekly "The Crime" Thursday, March 1, 2012 (pages number 12 and 13 )

"I suspect that my books were destroyed"

A new source of conflict between the former PJ inspector and the McCann couple goes around the back of the book written by Amaral. The courts overturned the injunction hanging over the work, and now the former inspector calls 7500 copies of "Maddie - The Truth of the Lie", whose trustee is the legal representative of McCann in Portugal.

"Crime" - The Court of Appeal ruled that the books (Maddie - The Truth of the Lie) which had been seized, will be delivered. Have them already in their possession?

Gonçalo Amaral - the Lisbon Court of Appeal ruled that my book and my opinions did not violate privacy rights of the couple McCann, parents of missing child, so that the injunction was peremptorily denied.

The decision has become final?

The decision of the Court of Appeal did not accept action. Even so, the distinguished lawyer of the couple managed to delay the final judgment, which occurred in November 2011 following a decision contrary to the McCann issued by the Supreme Court of Lisbon. It has been selling "pig in a poke" and I am beginning to doubt that the McCanns are aware of the decisions of the Portuguese courts. You may continue to pay without knowing the outcome.

Why it was not returned?

I doubt that the books exist. Indeed, it is good to remember that the lawyer of the McCanns have always said that these books would never be offered for sale. Where did this come ... sure do not know. Just know that this lawyer and his clients do not comply with decisions of courts of Portugal, which can be demonstrative of his character, or at least their way of being in the Portuguese legal system.Let me remind you that, to suspect that such books have been destroyed, denounced the situation to the prosecutor, happening right now in DIAP Lisbon criminal proceedings for embezzlement or destruction of objects placed under the government (Article 355 C of the Penal Code), abstract punishable by a prison term up to five years, which are suspected the McCanns and their illustrious lawyer.

How many copies are we talking about?

They will be concerned about 7500 copies.

When you are given will replace them in the supply chain?

Those books, or a new reissue, should already be in the market. The publisher "War and Peace" will know this subject.
What stage is the civil case against the McCanns have you?
We are in pre-trial hearing. 
Right now, my new attorney has"Tweaked" a process that was stopped and this has caused panic in the opposing party.
One of the strongest arguments for the prosecution is claiming that Gonçalo Amaral enriched with the rights to the book. 
What a commentary it deserves?
If someone wants to talk about "enrichment", first think about the parents of missing child in their family, in his "staff" and support in his illustrious lawyer.In the latter case that it was important to say how much you've earned and the prospects of earnings that still feeds, not to mention other lawyers, detective agencies and communication.

Do you have any expectation for this process?

The only expectation is that we will win the action, because there are no facts or matters of action. The action of the McCanns is inept. And all this causes great despair in his illustrious lawyer, who feels the need to move forward with a campaign of disinformation and defamation against me. You should not forget what has been said, because by that will respond in court.
As you know, Prime Minister David Cameron has ordered re-evaluate the research in England about the disappearance of Maddie. 
How do you assess that decision, admitting that the British hardly have access to research in Portugal?
The decision of the Prime Minister has been misrepresented. The McCanns have spoken of a reassessment of the "sightings" of the child. But what is known is that Scotland Yard, appointed to review all research, has put aside the pseudo-sightings focusing on the process that is filed. The elements of the Scotland Yard have been working with a research team from Porto  (Porto because the Algarve and Lisbon had been involved), and what is known is that the "thing" is not going very well for the side of McCann 

The Maddie case, one can say (not secret) has committed his career in PJ. What hurts you feel about that?

Not so! The case "Maddie" happened at a stage in my life when I was already tired of saying "yes." Only and only that.

It was naive?

Nothing like that. I left the Judicial Police on my initiative and head up, I worked there for almost thirty years and had a successful career and unpolluted. The detractors who try to denigrate such a career, because then we talk soon.

So far the track taken by private investigators looking for the child, even those that have become more media, have proved useful and, perhaps, have thrown up more confusion about the case. 
What is your opinion?

The private detectives, in general, were concerned to make up stories about the Portuguese investigators in charge of the case, or creating false sightings. The McCanns should have the courage to disclose all reports generated by such private detectives and then we would understand how that has served the fund created to find the child .. 
It would be very interesting.In fact, let me remind you of the action detective agency "Method 3". These gentlemen have created several sightings. At some point, Christmas 2007, came to say that the missing child would be home that same Christmas. At that time tried to turn the investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine. They came to "contact" a lawyer / medium to make that connection. This character was the first person who publicly coverage mediatic said that Madeleine was dead, and carried out searches in the Algarve dams. And today is bewildering, or maybe not, who is a distinguished lawyer of the McCanns to defend it in the process against him for defamation intentei qualified and whose crime is being prosecuted in the Court of Faro. Now let us stop a little. recall that the McCanns say that when I expressed my opinion in the sense that the child be dead, was, according to them, undermining the search to find it.Now I ask you to you and every citizen: the reason for the lawyer of the McCanns be defending a person who manifests and has publicly expressed the idea that Madeleine is dead? What is the reason for the "Method 3" have contacted the lawyer / medium? Surely not to find the child alive.

Still believes that someday we will know what happened, that beyond any doubt?

Someone must find a solution politically correct and diplomatic.
