Maddie Case: English suspects of withholding relevant evidence
Gonçalo Amaral believes that the British police did not disclose all that they have found to the Portuguese Judiciary Police (PJ)
Maddie Case: British ambassador revelations raise new suspicions
"English may have other evidence"
Gonçalo Amaral, former coordinator, believes that the British police did not disclose everything to the PJ regarding the McCanns and the suspicions of paedophilia of their friend Payne
by Henrique Machado
The British ambassador in Lisbon admitted that the police of his country found incriminating evidence against the McCanns in the disappearance of their daughter Maddie, as was revealed by WikiLeaks. Gonçalo Amaral, the former Judiciary case coordinator "without knowing which evidence are those", admits that they could have been omitted. "It is very strange, for example, that they did not send us the information relative to the suspicions (of paedophilia) referring to David Payne", an element of the [Tapas]group in Praia da Luz, in the Algarve, in May 2007.
"Similarly, the British police always told the PJ, in the requests made, that there was nothing relevant as to the credit card transactions" made by Maddie's parents or by the group of friends, nor in relation to "Kate and Gerry's relationship or to the missing child clinical records", for example.
The PJ coordinator does not believe that the evidence mentioned by the UK ambassador, Alexander Ellis, with his US counterpart had anything to do with the fact that the dogs, which have detected blood and cadaver odour in the trunk of the car rented by the McCann, were British. "Even because, on September 28 (the day the ambassadors' conversation took place), the English lab [F.S.S.] had already stated that the blood evidence gathered did not belong to Maddie". Therefore, the evidence that Ellis makes reference to "must be something else" - which the British police failed to deliver to the Judiciary.
Those gestures were witnessed by a British doctor, who denounced them to the British police in May 16, 2007. "The PJ was only informed in October", and, when Paulo Rebelo's team went to England with questions for the group, David Payne "was the only one who was heard by the English Police without the presence of the PJ".
He enjoyed giving bath
Payne was the last person, known, besides the parents, to see Maddie alive. The Englishman, over whom a suspicion of paedophilia was raised, enjoyed giving bath to children.
Gonçalo Amaral, PJ inspector now retired, told the CM that he is gathering new indicia that provide for the reopening of the investigation.
Amaral raises doubts as to the DNA results obtained by the English lab [Forensic Science Service].

"I was sitting between Gerry and David and I think both were talking about Madeleine (...). I remember David saying something to Gerry about "she", meaning Madeleine 'would do this'. While he mentioned the word 'this', David was doing the action of sucking one of his fingers, pushing it in and out of his mouth, while with his other hand he was doing a circle around his nipple (...). I remember being shocked by that."
