Gonçalo Amaral, the former Judiciary Police head of the Maddie investigation, thinks that the Freeport process is being handled at the same “power pressure” level as the disappearance of the little English girl.
‘The politicians are the same. Take this at face value’, Gonçalo Amaral said in Oporto yesterday, during the ‘Desire’ congress.
Concerning political pressures, Gonçalo Amaral stated once more that they existed in the Maddie case. ‘There was pressure from London to archive that one, now it seems there is pressure from London not to archive the Freeport process in Portugal.’
The PJ investigator, who has retired in the mean time, even launched a challenge to the Freeport process investigators’ team. ‘The prosecutor could go and have tea with Kate McCann. Maybe she’d tell her the truth. And they might as well solve the manipulation of the forensics results’, said Gonçalo Amaral.
