Gonçalo Amaral's editor has not been notified yet



Transcript & translation:


Gonçalo Amaral – They won’t shut us up, that much is certain.

Sandra Felgueiras (voice over) – For now, the former inspector can still say it without paying a fine, because even if he appeals, this sentence has no suspending effect, which means it has to be obeyed. But by the early afternoon today, Gonçalo Amaral had yet to be notified of the gagging order – verbal, through the book and the DVD – that the court imposed on him. The McCanns have always considered that his conviction, that was never proved, and which attributes to them the concealment of their own daughter, is an injury that had catastrophic effects in the outcome of the case.

Gerry McCann – There’s a lot of people in Portugal who believe that there is evidence, and, further afield, that Madeleine is dead, and if people believe that, they won’t search for her. And they may have information, and they may not come forward with that information.

SF (voice over) – The controversial book has been on the market for a year, but Gerry McCann explains that only now he is advancing with an injunction to prevent new editions, because he had to wait for the translation of the entire process, in order to gain certainties.

GMC – I'm very clear. There is no evidence that Madeleine is dead.

SF (voice over) – Due to a lack of evidence, the case was archived, and even without clues about Madeleine’s whereabouts, at this moment, Gerry only hopes for another outcome from the Portuguese justice: that it forces Gonçalo Amaral to shut up, if only forced by a fine.

  1. Só falta os Macan dizerem a todos nós para baixar-mos as calçinhas,porque à Pj já á muito que eles fizeram isso exceto a um único elemento.
    Por isso e só por isso Dr. Amaral lhe desejo que a vóz nunca lhe doa e a coragem nunca lhe falte.

    Força a verdade vençerá.

  2. Gerry aged a lot in the last few months. There is a lot more going on in his life right now, in my opinion.I would have expected a better face during this statement, a face of relieve, something like that, but he looks much worse than he ever looked before.Maybe because he feels bad about talking about the book, the PJ's conclusion,the conclusions of the Public Prosecuter and Madeleine's death, he has to admit this subject in front of the public, even if he denies the final conclusions.Till now, Clarence would do the talk, even at every wind the McCanns would break, Clarence would tell us how great it was smelling. Yesterday Gerry spoke to the public himself, knowing what the Britains think about this case.
    How difficult it must have been.

  4. Quem conhece a história do velho, o menino e o burro.
    Cada hora um deles montava no animal, chegaram os dois a montar ao mesmo tempo, juntos, isto tudo sempre sob comentários negativos de passantes.
    Quando a Justiça portuguesa vai entrar na cidade com o burro nas costas?
    Eu quero ver.

  5. A Manuela M. Guedes e o Jornal de 6ª já fazem falta, para dar destaque ao autentico atentado contra a liberdade de expressão que resulta da Providência cautelar anunciada ontem, contra Gonçalo Amaral!

    "there is no evidence that Madeleine is dead." Yup, that sounds unintelligible to me.

    I remeber when they suggested to the Police that Madeleine was dead and tjhat they'd like to let that South-African dead-body buster have a go with his contraction...

    Maybe he's saying that the evidence is insufficient to prossecute his ass, or that there's no evidence of an abduction, but that's fine by him... or maybe, he just needs to say his own lies out loud to keep believing in them himself...

  6. Se este gerry mccann acha que os portugueses estão convencidos que a menina está morta e que o seu corpo foi escondido pelos pais apenas e só por terem visto o documentário e por terem lido o livro de Gonçalo Amaral está profundamente enganado(ou quer enganar quem o ouve).A descrença dos portugueses face à versão ferozmente defendida por estes pais desde o dia 3 de Maio de 2007 deve-se em primeiro lugar ao comportamento bizarro do casal enquanto se encontrava em Portugal, que nada tinha a ver com o de pais verdadeiramente preocupados com o desaparecimento de uma filha que, segundo eles, havia sido raptada por um misterioso desconhecido.A recusa em responder às perguntas da polícia e em participar na reconstrução do dia do desaparecimento,as inconsistências nos depoimentos, a existência de dois discursos diferentes- um para a família em Inglatera e para os media ingleses e outro para a polícia portuguesa e para os media portugueses- o aparecimento de um porta-voz pago pelo governo inglês e a recusa das autoridades britânicas em fornecer informações importantes para a investigação sobre o casal e a menina foram peças que se foram encaixando no puzzle e que levaram gradualmente os portugueses a duvidar cada vez mais da versão do rapto e a suspeitar de que algo muito mais grave se passou com aquela criança.Além de que todos nos apercebemos de que o casal goza de uma inexplicável protecção política .A detecção de odor a cadáver no peluche da criança e nas roupas da mãe e de, simultâneamente, odor a cadáver e sangue no apartamento onde o casal estava instalado, assim como no carro alugado 20 e tal dias após o desaparecimento da criança pelos famosos cães ingleses (que até terem incriminado os mccann eram considerados os melhores do mundo pela imprensa britânica e que passaram depois a ser apenas inúteis e falíveis) e o comportamento suspeito e pouco profissional do laboratório inglês encarregue de analisar os vestígios encontrados confirmaram o que todos já temíamos.O livro do Sr Gonçalo Amaral acabou por não se revelar uma grande surpresa para a maioria dos portugueses.Portanto, sr gerry mccann, o seu grande medo é que aí em Inglterra e no seu páis natal, os seus compatriotas descubram que afinal não há evidências de tenha havido um rapto, há sim indícios que a criança morreu e que o sr e a sua esposa, ajudados pelos vossos amigos e pela autoridades britânicas não só nunca colaboraram com a investigação como fizeram tudo o que estava ao vosso alcance para a sabotar e levar a um fim precoce e inconclusivo.Aqui já não engana ninguém!

  7. The Liverpool echo (kate Maccanns home) which in the past has been supportive of the Maccanns had very little to say about the book banning. The daily mail is now allowing comments against the Maccanns I wonder are the UK papers now wakeing up a little.

  8. i think this is the beginning of an end for the McCanns. Why is spokesman Clarence not making the speech, scared of law suit?

    Something new has cropped up. To prove what happened.

    Running scared they are

  9. Joana, eu também quero ver a Justiça com o burro nas costas, a entrar na cidade.
    Vai tropeçar muito pois dizem que é cega.
    E é sim.
    Não enxergar a conclusão da PJ e a do promotor de justiça,verbalizadas pelo Amaral no livro, só pode ser cega.

    Não conseguir imaginar o choro da Madeleine, só pode ser surda.

    Não gritar por justiça, é muda.

    Além do mais, analfabeta, não sabe ler o que está na frente.

  10. I agree the Maccanns are scared, Gerry looked different this time mind you he is a very good actor , and where was Darling Kate, not holding his hand this time and swishing her pony tail, I would say they are now very afraid.

  15. Joana, if you see fit, I think that the comment made in portuguese by anon.@ 23:53 is worth of translation into english for many more to be able to read it. Thank you!

    Oh, and congratulations to the said anon.! Exactly my thoughts and feelings!

  16. Sandra F - One of the few honest journalists to have followed this case.

    Amaral - Brave and full of integrity.

    Gerry McCann - Left his three year old children alone in an unlocked apartment unsupervised, so that they could be kidnapped, according to his own account. Seeks to justify that as reasonable parenting. Has never explained why he and the other Tapas 9 did not mount an immediate and concerted search in the direction indicated by Jane Tanner's "sighting".

    By the way this is the key to unravelling the mystery - some sustained questioning of Jane Tanner about who she told and when (she has already admitted telling another Tapas 9 person soon at or around 10pm). A proper investigation will focus on what happened after that and why no concerted search was undertaken.

  17. "For now, the former inspector can still say it without paying a fine, because even if he appeals, this sentence has no suspending effect, which means it has to be obeyed."

    I despair of our justice system, I really do! We've all seen high-profile cases involving polititians, namelly council mayors, who have been investigated, accused, charged and found GUILTY and condemned to jail sentences in a court of law, and yet, just because they filled for an appeal, as the law allows them to do, their sentencing is put on hold until the appeal(s) is heard, and they are considered innocent and are free to go about their business as usual, even to the popint of being able to run for another term in office!!! But, on the other hand, Mr. Amaral as to obey the gagg order even if he is putting-up an appeal! And it was not even a sentence derived from a court trial, it is only an injunction!
    I do not understand how this can be!?

  18. Perhaps Gerry is looking bad because he is afraid of the consequences of banning the book.
    If Amaral fights back, and that's what I expect, it will be difficult for the Mccanns to overlook everything.
    The accident and death happened in Portugal, the boby is probably still there, Amaral even said he knows what happened to the corpse, its whereabouts, etc(As tardes de Júlia).
    Gerry fears this but he still prefers to ban the book, to avoid its coming to the UK.
    He must be terrified.
    Death, fraud, the UK will vomit the couple.

  19. Segundo Joana Morais em cima da pagina encontra-se o seguinte: "1.Everyone shall possess the right to freely express and publicise his thoughts in words, images or by any other means, as well as the right to inform others, inform himself and be informed without hindrance or discrimination 2.Exercise of the said rights shall not be hindered or limited by any type or form of censorship Constitution of the Portuguese Republic, Article 37.º"
    Entao que "raio" de leis sao essas ai em Portugal, um Juiz pode fazer a lei como quer e dar ordens como quer, fazendo assim com que Goncalo retire o livro das bancas e nao tenha liberdade de expressao!

  22. Fiz mais fotocopias do livro ontem, para satisfazer pedidos de amigos que entretanto o re-fotocopiarao para outros amigos, do que durante o ano inteiro.

    Parabens Gerry, por esta publicidade enorme a verdade que quer esconder.

    Ninguem calara a indignacao de milhoes de pessoas pelo mundo que se encarregarao de passar a mensagem do livro, e comentar nos cafes, na internet , nas reunioes de amigos, aquilo que voces querem que G. Amaral e Portugal engula. A censura de ha 50 anos nao funciona no mundo moderno e nos ja nao temos vendas na cara.

    JA TODOS PERCEBEMOS O QUE VOS MOVE NESTA MEDIDA- NAO E PROCURAREM A VOSSA FILHA, E RECEBEREM ALGUNS MILHARES DE EUROS A CUSTA DO TRABALHO DA PJ E DE G. AMARAL. ESTE ATENTADO A LIBERDADE DE EXPRESSAO VISA OUTRO CRIME.... A EXTORCAO DE DINHEIRO COM A BENCAO DESTA JUIZA.
    A juiza e perita em ser guardia de pedofilos, ja safou o Pedroso mas nao convenceu o Publico.

  23. As I see it, Amaral had 2 options about his book and TV interviews: either be blunt and assertive about his thesis, or beat a little bit more around the bush, describe his findings, and explain what it might lead the PJ into thinking (about the child's disappearance) in a more subtle way. Both options had advantages and disadvantages. He chose the first, with the risk that he would be ordered to shut up after a while, and would be asked for a substantial amount of money by the family. It allowed him to say what he thought for quite a long while, and he wasn't unsuccessful at all in making his point of view known to the greatest possible number of people.

    I don't see Amaral as a winner, and I don't think he should be pressured to take more and more personal risks. I see him as a man dedicated to his work, a man with pride, honour and above all a sense of justice. He considers he has a duty to the poor child who had such a sad fate, due to some amount of carelessness. He is not a scheming type. That is why he is so much appreciated.

    He now has achieved his goal which was to let everyone who wanted know how the investigation progressed, then was stopped. Well done. Thank you Mr Amaral.

    Now it is up to the authorities to decide if they want to dig a little more into the case, or let it unfinished, with the inconsistencies unexplained, and the reconstruction not done.

  24. Great clip, showing the cadavar dogs & then Gerry's "no evidence"

    Watch the head & voice, start at approx 50 seconds, then Gerry comes on.

    Changes in Voice for Liars
    Voice changes can also reveal a lie. Voice may go up in pitch, showing stress, or it may go down in pitch and slow down, as if the person is thinking hard about what is being said. A person may stop to clear her throat, or take a long pause while deciding what to say.

    Another big one is Kate in so many intervies, shrugging shoulders

    Shrugging shoulders. When a person makes a statement, then shrugs her shoulders, it appears as if she is saying it’s not believable, or she doesn’t have faith in what she’s saying.

    I also agree that the fact that Clarence is missing sreams "the fan is covered" & Kate wont be able to hold up the lies. So many interviews, so many inconsistant stories.

    People that have never given a damn about this case, will be up in arms over "freedom of speech" & "abuse of power"

    People who are in it for the money will be selling English copies of the book.

    I also agree that there were so many books about Jon Bennett Ramsey, the parents were super rich, had connections but never got the books banned??????

  25. Getting a book banned is the riskiest of strategies, because people in general are against the very idea of banning books and censorship. The McCanns, whose names are already firmly associated with the idea of leaving children home along (as in the expression 'doing a McCann'), must have known their names will now be associated with the odious practice of book-banning. There's always a price to pay for everything you do, as they've found in the past and will no doubt continue to find in the future.

    I also think the way this book-banning has been reported in the British media will have disappointed them. It was on the 6 o'clock news on ITV on Wed, but both the newsreader in the studio and their reporter in Rothley looked bored with the whole subject, as they recounted the bare bones of the matter, without a trace of the usual sympathy in their faces or voices. They also mentioned the contents of the book and not once did they use the word 'abduction'. Censorship raises red flags for everyone, even the dimwits of the British media.

    I didn't see Gerry's interview, but if he's aged then it's more than he deserves. Madeleine will never age, IMO, and for that they bear a heavy responsibility, no matter what her fate.

  26. Perhaps Gerry McCann is worried people might start looking for a dead Madeleine.

    And, actually find her.

  27. "Gerry McCann – There’s a lot of people in Portugal who believe that there is evidence, and, further afield, that Madeleine is dead, and if people believe that, they won’t search for her. And they may have information, and they may not come forward with that information."

    Well what about the witness that came forward to the McPI's 2yrs+ after seeing a so called Victoria Beckham look-a-like in Barcelona? Now this supposed witness (if he exists) did not come forward for personal reasons nothing to do with GA's book. Now did the McC PI's look for M then. What did they actually do with the information the supposed witness gave them? Imo it seems the Barcelona information real or not was used for pure PR sensationalism! Perhaps pure PR sensationalism they thought the gullible public would believe and in turn would support this injunction in Portugal against GA's book. You know put out in the worldwide domain via a worldwide press conference that there is a witness who has come forward all this time later with information about the missing child. Put out in the worldwide domain that there could be lots of other witnesses and because of GA they might not be coming forward! I do not think they expected they're worldwide press conference to be seen as the unbelievable farce it was! Who goes to an expensive air time worldwide press conference regarding the sensitive issue of a missing child with their mobile technology switched on? CM and DE both looking at their phones and reading them or whatever! It reminded me of when looking at house for sale (when it was difficult to sell) in the past, the phone ringing and the seller answering it and impying that someone was very interested in the property when quite obviously it was not an interested party! Imo the vibrating or ringing moby's were props to provide and show an air of importance during the non news conference! Now I have not read GA's book however I have read some translations of it on the Internet. Before I even knew that GA existed and before he even put pen to paper I had my own suspicions!...contd

    ReplyDelete
  28. ..contd:

    My own suspicions were aroused on the 4/5/07 when I heard the news. When I realised that three little children all then aged 3 and under were left unsupervised in a holiday flat whilst their parents went out for dinner! My suspicions grew stronger. When I actually saw with my own eyes the news coverage and just exactly how far the flat was from the bar, it was most definitely not the distance the McC's, their family and friends were implying to the world! Why? My suspicions grew stonger when I actually thought how could they get all 3 children to sleep and know that the children would not wake up or get out of bed as children do. Children can climb out of cots especially travel cots. You know wake up for a drink, the toilet (what if one of the twins or both had diarrhea, they were both in nappies fgs and were in cots! What if M had diarrhea was she supposed to attend to herself?) a cuddle, perhaps a sore tummy that needed a rub, a need for comfort, what if one of the children were sick (I now know from the case file that there was sickness going around on during that holiday!) were these children if they vomited or soiled themselves expected to just wait until someone checked on them every 30 mins? What if one of the children choked on their own vomit? How would a checker who listened at a door know that a child had choked? What if the child that could get up and wander about had an accident? Say she fell off of something and died from shock or an injury and was lying hidden behind what ever she fell off of? How would a checker that listened at doors know this? These are some of the suspicions I have had since the 4/5/07. GA's book merely supports my thoughts it has not formed them. I am capable of forming my own opinion. That is why imo the McC's brainwashing does not work with me. I do not believe them. I did not believe them on 4/5/07, they're actions and behaviour since then have strengthened my suspicion of them. I have never believed that MBM was abducted and never will. However if I thought I saw a child who was MBM, or at some point in my life thought I saw/met a woman young or old that could be MBM I would push my own suspicions to one side and I would report it to the police. I think even if GA experienced the same he would too! Imo all this is nonsense that GA's book is stopping people searching for her and coming forward. The mother of the missing child said on Oprah that she was in the flat the night her child disappeared waiting for the light to come so she could get out there. WTF! What parent of a missing child would wait for light to look for their little child that is out in the cold, dark night? Do the McC's think/expect evrybody to give them money to do they're supposed searching? Do they think/expect the public are also going to go and physically search for them also? They state via the Press/Media that no law enforcement agencies are searching for their child? Why are they not requesting that the case for their child they claim has been abducted be re-opened? Why are they not in Portugal demanding this? How on earth is doing nothing about the archived case file that is sitting on a shelf in Portugal gathering dust doing everything they can to find their findable child?

    "GMC – I'm very clear. There is no evidence that Madeleine is dead."

    Where is the evidence to support an abduction? Just because she is missing does not mean she has been abducted? Where is the evdience to support that this child is alive?
    Perhaps no one has come forward because no one else, outside of those on that holiday or Mr Smith and his family, has seen or heard anything!

  29. O Sr.Amaral já foi notificado oficialmente da decisão do tribunal? É que hoje de manhã o Sr.Amaral esteve a falar do livro na TVI no Você na TV. Infelizmente não pude ver :(
    Quais são as consequências?
