Former Detective hired by Maddie parents knew all the steps being taken in the Investigation
Soon it can be revealed the name of the Inspector who belonged to Gonçalo Amaral's team and who was a 'snitcher' for the McCanns
A former detective from the Spanish Agency Método 3 guarantees to have had "access to confidential informations" during the investigation done regarding the disappearance of Madeleine McCann. According to the detective, at the origin of this alleged leak is an element of the Judiciary Police who "is protected" by the Directorship of Faro [the Director is Guilhermino Encarnação].
The statements given by the Método 3 man - the detective agency hired by Kate and Gerry to search Maddie whereabouts - where recorded in video by the journalist Duarte Levy and will become part of a TV documentary on the subject.
"In the interview, the Spanish detective clearly identifies the PJ inspector", guarantees the journalist, adding that this statements "confirm suspicions risen" by other elements of the Judiciary. "This informations allowed us to know previously what the inspector Gonçalo Amaral and his colleagues where going to do", summarizes the detective, who believes that without this elements the investigation "could have had a different ending".
Quoted by Duarte Levy, the man from Método 3 says that the informations resultant from an alleged "leak" in the PJ had repercussions on the process: "Several initiatives from Amaral's men failed (...) but there were also informations coming from informants who where connected to the British Embassy". The former detective highlights that the investigation "was doomed [condemned]" since there was a previous knowledge of all the steps to be taken by the Police.
That until Gonçalo Amaral started having suspicions. Then, and still according to the detective, he started giving information only to his "men of trust".
The 24 Horas contacted the National Directorship of the PJ, however it did not receive an answer in time [for the publication]. Gonçalo Amaral was out of reach up to the end of the closing of this edition [maybe he is in Granada, Spain?].
In the interview, the detective reveals that he tried, without successes, to contact the coordinator of the investigation to the Maddie Case, Gonçalo Amaral. "He was considered among us as tough, specially in the fight against drug trafficking.. he is Incorruptible", states the detective.
Guaranteeing that he was "never" asked to search for Maddie - he was only asked to collect information about alleged sightings - the Método 3 man says that his objective was to "spread broadly" the Moroccan lead to "confirm that it was an abduction."
