  5. Just Great, the Tapas 9 have now my full support to travel to Lisbon, be present at the livraria -- but must sleep under the bridge, amongst their fellow rats. And no scrambled eggs for break., though.

  10. Joana, people in the UK don't know who Moita Flores is.
    It would be wise to explain it.

  11. As well as May 3rd, December 11 is not going to be a date that the McCanns will forget in a hurry.

    ReplyDelete
  12. And people on the rest of Europe and on the American continent don't know it either.

  13. who knows the McCanns are prepared to sign the books.

  14. I for one am looking forward to reading Gonçalo Amaral's newbook. Maybe the McCanns will attend the book launch and ask for an autographed copy.

    I am pleased to see that there are a lot of important people who support him and that he is not at all alone in his fight for justice, not just for Maddie but for everyone. It takes a lot of courage to take up this battle.

  15. I presume the British media are coming to Lisbon.
    I hope Sunday Express will be present.

    ReplyDelete
  16. The British media will still be bound by the super-injunction.Perhaps The Guardian have decided to report nothing at all, rather than be obliged to report from a pro-McCann stance.

  22. I'm afraid that if the British media is present (and they probably will), they will again report how the disgusting Portuguese mistreated the brave McCann couple who are in Portugal to clear their name (pls read to extort some money) of the increbible claims contained in the book bla bla bla. And then again they will have a go at GA. We know the score..

  23. I just love Sr Amarals' style, way to go, hope i can get an English copy, just what i need for Christmas!

  24. Ferris 23 - You have put into words my thoughts exactly!

    ReplyDelete
  25. The McCanns will milk this opportunity to appear the 'persecuted' couple and the UK media will make sure they are the good guys in all this!

    Good luck Goncalo - many of us are backing you and admire your dedication!

  26. 23, do you think the British public are stupid?
    They know what happened.
    They know their media are gagged.

  27. Hurray! Sky's Martin Brunt has blogged and it's close to the facts of the matter at hand as one can get in any press :-o


    McCanns v Amaral...The Next Round

    Martin Brunt December 09, 2009 7:36 PM


    Kate and Gerry McCann will launch their libel action against former police chief Goncalo Amaral in Lisbon on Friday.

    They want a permanent ban on his book The Truth of the Lie, in which he challenged their version of events the night their daughter Madeleine vanished in May, 2007.

    And they want around a million pounds in damages, money they say will go to the Madeleine Fund to support the continuing search for her.

    I'm not expecting them to give evidence at the opening of a hearing that may drag on for several months.

    In September, the McCanns got a temporary ban on the book, which they claim is hampering public support for the search.

    Mr Amaral had many of his assets frozen and thousands of unsold copies of the book were returned to the McCann lawyers.

    It sounds like a potentially explosive courtroom confrontation, but I understand Mr Amaral may not even be there.

    Rumours on the ground suggest he may be across the city launching a new book.

  28. Of cause the British Police know the truth , they along with the media have been gagged . The guilt rests with those who are supporting the McCann's lies , whoever THEY are , let's hope for an eleventh hour Whistle Blower exposing the McCann's for what they have done to Madeleine and for all hell to break lose for the sake of justice for little Madeleine , then maybe she will rest in peace .

  31. Well done! I sure said Moita Flores and others would know exactly where their opinion mattered.

    Roll on Friday! :D

  32. Joana did you know where we can buy the new book? Can we order it trough Internet? Just in time... I decide my present to friends and family that cristhmas.

    Congratulations Mr. Amaral... in few weeks your new book will be a Best-seller in all countrys where will be released.

    Wonder... to see the Mccann's HURRY launching a new campaign asking more donations. THEY NEED MONEY TO PAY THE TRANSLATION OF THE NEW BOOK and a deep analise of the book by lawyers and other experts. They teached the world how to be insane and ask insane amounts of money. I HOPE ALL PEOPLE " hired" by the Mccann's to work on the new Amaral book, will ask them an insane amount of money to do the job. On Mccann's life all the numbers have no less then 6 figures. Remember that, guys, when you negociate with them.

  33. Moita Flores is a criminologist, a writter, a University teacher and also the Mayor of Santarem ( a town near Lisbon).
    For long time he worked in the PJ.

    Famous supporters of Amaral are people with high education and high reputation in Portugal, which don't need Maddie case to get protagonism and some minutes of fame on the shine stage of the Media. Contrary... Mccann's supporters, are the " Bimbos" of the football and the " Gringos" of the Media. THIS SAYS ALL ABOUT THE ALL SAGA... BIMBOS AND GRINGOS LOVE TO BE PART OF THE "BIMBOGRINGOLANDIA".

  38. All power to Amaral!

    Now let's get a read of this book in English please. Who the hell are the McCanns to tell me what I can or can't believe?

    I find it hard to believe anything that comes out of the mouths of child neglecting parents. 'Series of Checks' my ass.

  39. Bravo Sn Amaral - a new chapter in Mccanns circus. GOOD LUCK AND WELL DONE, freedom of speech for all, this book should soon be in WH Smith's front window - BEST SELLER - the Mccanns cannot suppress freedom of speech they are two pathetic murder suspects, with a group of ignorant, low life friends - JUSTICE FOR MADDIE. Top of my wish list.... 'I WANT THIS BOOK IN ENGLISH NOW!!'
