“O livro podia ser lido em França, em Espanha, na Holanda, na Alemanha, na Dinamarca, em Itália. Mas não em Portugal. Essa proibição foi um vexame que a maioridade cívica dos portugueses dispensa e rejeita.


“Maddie: A Verdade da Mentira”, the controversial book alleging Madeleine McCann died in apartment 5a in Praia da Luz, is back on sale in bookshops.

Edition 729 (17 May 2012)

Written by former PJ inspector Gonçalo Amaral – the policeman who led the original investigation into the 3-year-old’s disappearance – the book was banned from sale in September 2009 as a result of legal action mounted by Madeleine’s parents, Kate and Gerry McCann. Appeal court Judges overturned the ban in October 2011 – but it took months before the 7.000 “seized” copies were returned to publishers Guerra e Paz.
Talking of the ban, a spokesman for Guerra e Paz said it “was an affront that the majority of Portuguese society saw through and rejected”. Meantime, the book continues to be unavailable for sale in the UK where, the spokesman added, “a thick blanket of silence” has been maintained.
