McCanns should have been suspects since the first day, insists Gonçalo Amaral


"Kate and Gerry should have been considered suspects on the 1st day"

Report by Helena Figueiras/Paulo Lourenço

Gonçalo Amaral states that there isn't anything else to add to the Madeleine McCann disappearance and, for that same reason, he isn't planning on publishing a second book about the girl's case, even though he has already written it. Despite the fact that the former Judiciary Police inspector still has to face the McCann couple in court, he continues to maintain that the Portuguese police investigation was a job well done and that he would only do one thing differently. He would have had considered Kate and Gerry McCann as suspects on the exact day the child disappeared.

by JM/Textusa

Helena Figueiras [Voice Over] - Gonçalo Amaral says that he is not a victim of the Maddie case but acknowledges that he has been dealing with the consequences of a battle for the past seven years, a battle he was forced to fight by virtue of being a policeman.

Gonçalo Amaral - We are part of the collateral damages and in fact that’s all we are. Mere extras in a tragedy... a tragedy that affects that family, no question about it, but mainly the victim, that is the child who disappeared and who may be, as all points to, dead.

Helena Figueiras [Voice Over] - The setbacks due to the case were translated into family, affective and material losses, nevertheless Gonçalo Amaral guarantees that he would write the book again in which he responsibilizes the McCann couple for their daughter's disappearance.

Gonçalo Amaral - Maybe even do a second... a second volume but...

Helena Figueiras- Would you have more to say?

Gonçalo Amaral - ...Actually, that is already written, it is written but I don't believe I'll publish any further books about this case.

Helena Figueiras [Voice Over] - As to the investigation, he speaks of avenues of investigation that he would follow again, with only one difference, he would never have let down the guard in relation to Kate and Gerry.

Gonçalo Amaral - It was due to those diplomatic issues, the ambassador’s intervention and all else, who promptly wanted to push towards the abduction thesis. That limited the police action in the sense that they [McCanns] would have been treated as suspects from the start otherwise. What does that imply? That means, that they and those close to them would have been the target of direct, personal surveillance, and also of electronic surveillance. We were lead to consider other paths and only later did we return to that starting point. In some way we wanted to be considerate, we wanted to be somewhat friendly, diplomatic, when that isn’t part of a police investigation.

Helena Figueiras [Voice Over] - As to the Scotland Yard operation in Praia da Luz practically overlapping the trial in which the McCanns accuse him of defamation, he says that is no coincidence.

Gonçalo Amaral - The issue of paying or not paying the one million two hundred thousand euros, that's not what they are really waiting for. They are using the trial to suggest something like "see, we're not guilty". Which is actually what has been taking place. The whole of the Scotland Yard investigation is heading towards that goal. It's a farce. By being politically correct, or by defending something that in my view it's not only the McCanns. It's something more. It's that whole group and everything that went on within that group of doctors, a reflection of the English society itself.

Helena Figueiras [Voice Over] - After all that remains to be said…

Gonçalo Amaral - Those who held the custody of that child are responsible for her disappearance, at the very least for her disappearance, nothing more than that.

  2. Joana o que você escreveu sobre os McCann está excelente. Parabéns! E é por demais evidente que os McCann deveriam ter sido considerados suspeitos desde o primeiro segundo que, se bem me lembro, foi aí - e convenientemente - umas três ou quatro horas depois da miúda desaparecer. É uma afronta a posição deste casal e o facto de quererem destruir a vida de um homem (isto é, já terem destruído) por vingança e a troco de dinheiro....como se ao longo deste tempo todo tivessem recebido pouco dos incautos e ingénuos que foram na cantilena deles.
    Há apenas um "detalhe" (note-se que estou a ser irónica e muito quando digo detalhe) que me ultrapassa completamente e ainda hoje não consigo perceber: como é que eles, ilustres desconhecidos à época, conseguiram uma cobertura mediática à escala mundial numa fracção de segundo. Eles não: ela! Que é a "cabeça de casal" desta história mórbida!!!!!! Dá-me ideia que se se atreverem a pôr os pés neste País para o julgamento do Gonçalo Amaral, são linchados em três tempos. Convinha é que fosse noticiado e não abafado como é costume neste País.
    Já publiquei o seu "artigo" no FB (i.é, o link). Volto para saber os desenvolvimentos & again congrats!!!!!!

  5. Dr Amaral is absolutely right , the man has common sense , the parents left under age children on their own that's NEGLECT , refused to answer questions put to them by the Portuguese Police 7 years ago , they changed their stories , Jane Tanner claimed she saw someone , its beyond the realms of reality for redwood to suggest the mccanns and the Tapas 7 are not suspects , has the man no clue to read between lines? Or was it not expected that the files would find their way on the internet ? Or was it expected for Dr Amaral and his family to suffer in silence ? Would redwood stand in a British Court of Law and claim a parent who left under 4 year old children on their own is lawful in the UK or any where else in the world for that matter? Would the mccans hired liar still claim the mccans are "responsible" parents ? Its time the Portuguese Government applies for European warrant of arrests for this vile couple and their accomplices and charge them under Portuguese Law for Neglect . As for SY , they should try and resolve the crime in the UK instead of poking their beaks in a Sovereign Country. Would redwood be happy if a "suspect" REFUSED to answer questions when asked ? From how this case is going , its a total waste of public money and seems like it is looking like a "whitewash" to get the mccanns off the hook . Any decent Police officer who is genuinely looking for the truth into the disappearance would ask himself , why did the parents change their stories , why did they refuse to answer the questions put to them , how come the dogs smelt death in the apartment , on their person and in the car hired by this vile couple ? Its about time the British Tax payer demand ANSWERS through their MPs and get the good Mr Cameron to haul in the senior officers in this case before a select committee to answer why the Parents were not charged with Neglect . When a few senior officers involved in this case are "relieved" of their duties in Public Interest then maybe SY will once again get its once had good name back and the public will start to trust the police once again . No one is above the Law not even a Senior Police Officer period .

  6. As a matter of interest Gerry, what did happen to that big blue bag that was photographed in your apartment wardrobe on the night Madeleine vanished, and on the very shelf the cadaver dog alerted to weeks later, and which went missing, and which you subsequently said had never existed. I suppose just like those very UK blood and cadaver dogs which alerted in the McCanns' holiday apartment and hire car, and to only the possessions of the McCanns, ignoring everybody else, we have to assume that the big blue bag has also been airbrushed out of existence as far as the case is concerned. Presumably also never to be referred to Redwood, who has yet to even mention the UK dogs. After all, as far as Redwood is concerned Gerry McCann has spoken, there was no bag, so we must be seeing something that isn't there in that photo, and Redwood obviously believes all the McCanns tell him, him having already said the McCanns and their pals are not even suspects in any way whatsoever.

    What a bloody farce this so called SY 'investigation' is when no cop worth his salt would ever ignore the dogs, so what does that say about Redwood. We must make our own conclusions on that one..

  12. No, Dr Amaral, it is not the fault of 'English society', it is the British 'Establishment' who controls all this stuff, brainwashing and manipulating the public as they go. That is why Jimmy SaVILE,, a good friend of Royalty (top Masons) and also a Mason, was able to get away with his paedophile criminal acts for so long. The disgusting creature was promoted to the unsuspecting public by the media in the guise of a 'National Treasure', and a blind eye was turned by those in authority, BBC and all, who could have intervened and stopped his attacks on children, even those innocents in hospitals, but backed off, even the UK police also, because they saw him as part of that 'Establishment' who could do what the hell he liked, and he said and thought as much, and so did.

    Others high in political life were also protected by 'the great and the good' like vile MP Cyril Smith, another paedophile who preyed on young children, and the truth about this disgusting creatures long career of sexual abuse and violence towards children did not emerge until he was dead. How many more of them are there also being protected? God only knows!

    Nevertheless, the truth does eventually make it out into the light of day, and we can hope it will also do so in this case, and we can then all discover what the hell is going on with an investigation where the main pointers to what happened do not appear to be even being considered.

  13. @11 Actually I don't think he's blaming the English society, but stating that the whole group, the investigation which started as a politically motivated review ordered by Cameron following alleged pressures by NI, and maybe perhaps the whole affair, including the political pressures are a "reflection of the English society itself".

    ReplyDelete
  14. Please keep in mind Portugal that Gerry McCann and Gordon Brown are Scottish, and even Kate McCann is of Irish ancestry. Don't blame the 'English' for the production of these characters. Sorry Scotland and Ireland, but it is about time you took ownership of them.

  15. Is there no chance that Dr Amaral could take his case to the European Court of Human Rights?

    ReplyDelete
  16. I believe he could under Article 6 of the ECHR, "within reasonable time" ie for the excessive delay and the effects hampering his personal and his family lives.

  17. Anon 14, there are journalists who are very concerned about the cover ups perpetrated by the British 'Establishment' on behalf of their pals, e.g. Savile, Cyril Smith, both also well into Masonry, and both well protected whilst alive, and they knew it. Dr Amaral could perhaps raise his concerns with one/some of them. Not all journalists are willing to tow the line for those in power, and are well aware of the corruption that power can exert, even over the police, who are not able to do their jobs properly because of it.

    Simon Danczuc did an article in the 'Mail' in April entitled 'How police were forced to let Cyril Smith off the hook, and etc....' Quite an eye opener as to how the 'Establishment' operate on behalf of their 'pals', and a book has been written about it.

    I mention Masonry because there appears to be that common thread running through these issues involving the top people, though of course most Masons will be just ordinary people who meet as a group without sinister motives. Yet it is a way for those at the top to rub shoulders with each other and share 'favours' of helping their Masonic 'brothers'.

  18. The vile couple will get caught eventually , even if redwood turns a blind eye on vital evidence like the blue bag ,the dogs and if redwood claims that the mccanns and their pals are in no way whatsoever suspects for the disappearance of the child then , Iam sorry to say this man is not fit to hold the office of constable as a DCI and should be relieved of his duty with immediate effect , so should his Superiors as I assume he keeps his superiors informed of the "developments" . I am sure the plod are looking at these blogs and the genuine honest plod is blushing red with embarrassment . Its time for a public enquiry and the corrupt police officers relived of their duty in public interest . I hope redwood still remembers one of the "first objects " of a met police officer - PRESERVATION OF PUBLIC TRANQUILITY and as a Queens Constable to carry out investigations in an un bias and without favour or prejudice manner . The way this case is going is causing public outcry especially since its involved a enormous amount of money digging holes in sunny climes while the poor tax payer is trying to make ends meet .

  19. The Mccanns are in the newspapers they are very angry and upset because they are worried the truth will come out. Mr Amaral be strong and find out the truth we are all on your side, they are angry they thought they would get money from you. They are worried Mr Amaral will find out the truth. We all on your side to stop the lying people bringing different stories. Most people believe that Maddie died in the flat. Mr Amaral good luck and we hope you find something. We read that Mr McCann once said they will never find her they know what happened.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yes, the McCanns are responsible for Madeleine's "disappearance". Whatever happened inside that apartment, they are responsible for the disappearance of her little body. Not once have I heard either of them advise parents not to do as they did, leave three little children under the age of four alone. All I have ever read is that they were advised they behaved in a 'responsible' way.

  21. The McCs may be Scots/Irish but it is SY, the British Police who are responsible for what seems to me a monumentally cack-handed cover-up. Truly a national disgrace which will, sooner or later, be revealed for what it is.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I said that when the Appellate court rendered its decision in favour of Mr. Amaral and the Supreme court dismissed the McCann's appeal that the libel trial was effectively dead. Why, because no matter what decision is handed down Mr. Amaral will certainly win on appeal. Mr. Amaral knows it, the McCanns know it, but regardless the couple and company are pulling out all stops to have this decision go their way. Why, because then they can say to the world as Mr. Amaral put it: 'see we're innocent.' The worldwide media will have a field day with such a decision, but when Mr. Amaral wins on appeal the headlines will be few.

    You have to wonder why this libel trial even went ahead. Is it a libel trial? I'm not even sure that the people representing the McCanns have gone into specifics as to what they consider to be libelous. If I was Mr. Amaral I wouldn't trust these proceedings. Perhaps his recent behaviour, i.e. sacking his lawyer and his bold declarations are an indication that he knows that something is not right in that court.

    ReplyDelete
  23. The knowledge that little Maddie was cremated in the same coffin as a stranger is devastating. Such a deep, dark secret that has somehow seen the light of day. Perhaps the Bishop drew a confession from someone wracked with guilt?

  25. If I and many others round the world , hope the SY get common sense and get the despicable duo to Portugal to be charged with neglect , Mr Amaral will be seen as a hero for he spoke the truth while this pair and the pink mouthpiece went round the world spewing stories of abductions when the ordinary man and woman with enough common sense and has followed the case from day one , know the pair of them are guilty of neglect and their accomplices are guilty of aiding and abetting .

    ReplyDelete
  26. I hope the Portuguese still realise that there are many, many British people who do not believe the McCann's story. Even people in their home town of Rothley do not believe them. We are disgusted with this whole affair and the negative effect it is having on the people of Praia de Luz and Portugal as a whole. One thing I will say and firmly believe; the truth will come out eventually and when it does, we should all be ready and waiting to make sure everyone who was involved in this cover-up be made accountable.

    Thank you Joana for your continued vigilance.

  27. @ Anonymous 5 : Martin Grime was very clear stating that Eddie didn't alert to a shelf but to the corner between the cupboard and the wall. The shelf alert is therefore a myth.
    Believing the BBB (big blue bag) story telling means not believing the Smith family who said they crossed a child carrier who had no shovel nor blanket nor BBB. And that happened about 8 minutes after the alarm was launched, when all had left the Tapas, exactly at 10:03.
    GA can sue the Portuguese state at the ECHR. For instance he could complain that the banning of his book injunction, after more than a year with the book on sale, had no meaning whatsoever and that his getting finally his book back on shelves 26 months later was a severe interruption of sales and prejudice for the public. In particular, of these 26 months, 7 are due to the MC's lawyer who used all tricks to delay the restitution of the books.

  28. The Macanns are losing the plot ,they know that the majority of people know the truth but their arrogance will continue until some decent person tell the truth. Kate Maccann was spewing sheer venom outside the court and could not disguise her anger or frustation .She is a very much a physocapth who will never believe she is not normal.God help her other children when they confront her with the truth ,which they will..

    You are right, and why this so called 'libel' case was not thrown out as 'frivolous' from the get go is beyond belief, since they appear to be scraping the barrel with their reasons to bring it and their demand to gag the world. Surely this was all settled at the Appellate Court already.

  30. Are the 8 suspects already being quizzed by the PJ and are the interrogations being kept secret because of the secrecy law in Portugal?
    I agree that the suspects have to be protected also because I wonder if they are guilty of anything related to Madeleine.

  31. There's a woman on Twitter on the McCanns # not McCann # who says she works in a hospital that one of t tapas 7(surgeon) works in,she says that he is trying to keep himself together,but is under a lot of stress,she says initially he got confused with the timeline of events that night,and regrets going along with it all.Someone on twitter told her she shld tell him to now do the right thing.I don't know if she's genuine,but she's got her own pic in her avatar.

  33. I understand Amaral's pessimisme because the PJ sufered a lot during their investigation.
    But I believe that the Met police are serious and they must have a reason to complicate the case. They need a perfect evidence and I think that they need the body.
    By now they must know where they can find it but they need to prove that the parents are involved in the homicide.

  35. Start with the mccanns and the Tapas 7 , redwood , get the gruesome twosome to answer the questions they refused to answer the Portuguese Police 7 years ago and the people round the world will think you are really trying to solve the crime instead of harassing junkies and digging up Portugal , while you are there maybe take the "coffin" clue seriously . Could it be why the big mouth Gerry claimed " find the body and prove we killed her" ? When you do both these then INVESTIGATE THE "FUND" and that would be seen by the British Tax Payer and people round the world that you are doing something productive and you may be able to justify the costs of the investigation . Its the people you are answerable to not the executive . Take the case to the European courts Dr Amaral its about time this vile pair are held accountable and counter sue the lot of them . As for the legal "eagles" defending this vile pair and fighting libel cases on their behalf , have they not followed the case and ask the same questions the public are asking ? Is it anywhere known in the annals of history , for a parent who NEGLECTED under 4 year old children that sadly went " missing" to be seen to hire a professional liar ? An decent Ex police officer Dr Amaral is being persecuted for just trying to do his job . Would a honest decent police officer be happy to see another police officer penalised for doing his job and be able to sleep at night ? Expose this lot in the ECHR Dr Amaral , God is on your side and the decent people round the world are praying for you . God bless you Joanna for the blogs and trying to get Justice for the little girl and DR Amaral .

  38. The fact they got taken for a massive fraud by a conman who said he could help pretty much shows the parents are innocent I think.
    Like most Brits I can't help but feel this is pretty much the incompetent Portuguese police who were on the case trying to cover their ineptitude. That's not a reflection on Portugal, but on those individuals involved in the investigation..
    Interesting allegations here. Almost all the points about guilt have been refuted.
    The McCanns were wrong to leave their kid alone - hardly murder.

  42. It looks like the British tax-payers are paying for a sub-standard Police-Force. Just what investigation are we supposed to be paying for? We certainly expect an honest, and thou-rah investigation, not one that involves cover-ups/corruption.
    Whether there is a body to be found or not, the perpetrators will make sure they've covered their tracks and got rid of any discriminating evidence you can be sure of that! But I ask myself WHY are the Met Police ignoring all other evidence that's pointing only one way if everyone here can see it!!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Anonymous @ 33. The Met cannot be serious. A serious police force cannot dismiss an entire investigation led by the Portuguese Judiciary Police, which had solid evidence of the parents guilt in Madeleine's disappearance. And declaring the parents innocent at the very starting of their own investigation, is not only against any police guidelines in similar cases, but reveals lack of professionalism and is biased to say the least.

    ReplyDelete
  44. @38 You must be very naïve or live in the clouds. And nobody here is stating that the parents are guilty of murder. But Madeleine's disappearance is nobody else's fault. Would you agree?

  45. Redwood should hang his head in shame. He is nothing but a rent a cop. When thus review rubbish started, it was made clear that the macs and their pals were in the clear. Why take such a conclusion, even before a review was even started? Answer, because it's all utter disgusting deceit. I said all along, Cameron was not going to have an investigation which showed the British were wrong. Rotten to the core. Mr. Amaral had been persecuted for doing what he believes is right. The authorities in his own country should stand up for him once and for all.

    The dog was actually trying to jump up to the shelf at one point, and who is to say the deceased child was not placed in that bag for a while BEFORE she was taken off into the night, (which would point to an earlier time of death, which would also correspond to the amount of time needed for cadaver scent to develop for cadaver dogs to detect it, approx ninety minutes for best dogs, discovered by tests carried out), the child then being then carried by the man in his arms, thus seen by the Smiths. No way can the large blue VANISHED bag, which was even mentioned in the Brunt documentary on the case be ruled out.

  48. I have to agree about the way they were treated by the PJ at the beginning. K&G should have been arrested and charged that night-even with a neglect charge. The reason they were treated differently, was because the police were trying to be 'nice' TO A COUPLE WHOSE DAUGHTER WAS ABDUCTED-MISSING.

    Team McCann must have known they would be charged, as they would have most certainly would have done here in the UK. I bet they still can't believe their luck!

    They pulled it off,with great finese,and became richer than their wildest dreams-meeting heads of state-and A list celebrities, and now they are raging because one person who actually cares about what happened to their daughter.

    The court case has brought them 'fame' and celebrity-(although they are a shy couple and hate the press) (haha) and the MSM made millions and continue to do so...

    SY, in the form of Redwood, said, and made it very clear from the start, that this 'review/investigation' was being carried out to bring 'closure' for the McCanns. The only 'closure' the McCanns will be satisfied with is one that will result in clearing their names completely, that means that SY must only look for the big bad 'abductor' and certainly not at them. Under no circumstances must SY look at them, nor will they, as Redwood has already told all who are listening that the McCanns and their friends are innocent of any involvement in the disappearance of Madeleine. That is Redwood's remit, and no way will he deviate whilst digging and all, since he is digging and doing his bit for the cause of finding the 'abductor'. Obedient Redwood is no Dr Amaral, don't expect him to be looking at what is right in front of his nose and so obvious, such as those doggies and all, since they will point away from the 'abductor', and even if he believes Madeleine did die in the apartment, it would still be the 'abductor' who abducted her dead body!

  50. For Anne Guedes when she writes: "Believing the BBB (big blue bag) story telling means not believing the Smith family who said they crossed a child carrier who had no shovel nor blanket nor BBB."

    In this particular instance there seems to have been a failure in your reasoning.

    The child's body could have bee removed from the apartment and taken in the manner described by the Smiths and... temporarily hidden.

    The holdall in the wardrobe shelf was photographed during the police searches in the apartment, therefore it is possible to assume the bag was used later to take her body, elsewhere.

    One thing does not contradict the other. Important to note that holdall has never been accounted for (I think).

    Also, it is interesting to note David Payne answers when asked about it (during the rogatory interview).

    There is at least one photograph of Gerry carrying a large golf holdall on his back, so the Portuguese investigators know he has used them. Scotland Yard would have discarded the missing bag as irrelevant.

    I suspect the brief SY have been given by David Cameron (Clarence Mitchell's mentor) is exactly to discard such circumstantial evidence and "prove" the parents are totally innocent.

    Keela detected odour that might have accumulated there via drafts as well as if it had been there! Both principles logically apply.

    No animosity implied Anne. I enjoy reading your pragmatic comments.
    Keep up the good work and stay loose.

  51. The blue bag in the wardrobe might also have been used to put the body in whilst a 'clean up' was carried out, and before the Smith sighting later on.

    Also, what happened to the fridge from the McCanns' holiday apartment that David Payne mentioned in his statement and refers to as having broken, yet that somehow does not get mentioned by the McCanns, speaking only of broken shutter and washing machine?

    Surely it may be of significance given that Dr Amaral mentions evidence from the car points to such an appliance for freezing or keeping cold having been used at some time, and the PJ were going all out at one time searching for a fridge, which was reported in UK media. Was it ever found?

    David Payne also wanted to tell more regarding the disappearance of Madeleine when he was interviewed in UK, but did not want it put on record in his statement. Did the PJ ever receive that information, or has that vanished also? Nevertheless, he could always be interviewed again and asked about it if the PJ reopened the case and started where they left off.

    ReplyDelete
  52. The blue bag existed, I believe Gerry himself reported it had been stolen to the OC reception, I read this somewhere,cant remember where but he was pretending to be annoyed about it. I have to try and find this piece. I think it is a strong possibility that the cremation theory is true. The PJ did think about cremation and investigated a pet crematorium that had been closed down.
    Dr Amaral is too humble, he denies being a victim and puts everything down to part and parcel of being a policeman, whilst the MCs raged and stamped their feet and cried its not fair, get the facts right MCs.
    Are all the people in the uk gonna accept all this, write to your mp,prime minister home secretary, we all need answers to these questions. Especially as it may be that the fund is illegal as Maddie is woc. Why did they do that,not something a normal parent would do.

  53. There was a great big bag slung across the back of an extra large buggy they were pushing down the hill, just a bit down from their holiday apartment, either 6/7th May. The buggy was covered over, and they were dressed in black and white with dark glasses, looking very solemn. Later on they were photographed coming back from that direction, minus buggy, bag and glasses, and looking very perky. After that, other buggies were used by them, but not seen that one again in any of the photos taken later on, and as for that large bag, never seen that again either. It was said that a buggy was also reported by them as having been stolen. That one maybe! They seem to have had quite a few things go missing, besides Madeleine of course.

    I DO believe that the Smiths saw Gerry carrying a child, but that child WAS NOT Madeleine! I don't thik he would risk walking through the streets with a dead child in his arms, no way...so, in this line of thought, he was carrying the daughter of one of his friends, I bet on Tanner's older daughter, and in the meanwhile Madeleine was taken out of the apartment in the big blue sports bag. She was hidden somewhere, maybe in one of Murat's real estate business empty houses, or in the house of some other helpful expat, and the sports bag was returned empty to the closet, before the police arrived. Later on, they must have realized the danger, if it was collected for forensics, and "wooshed" it!

  56. Its about time redwood gets Gerry to explain what happen to the blue bag , and if redwood thinks he can bring closure to this case he can think again . The crime was committed on Portuguese soil a place where redwood is an ordinary civilian and has to take direction from the Portuguese Police no matter what the papers say . Portugal has its own Police force who are capable of bringing the guilty people who caused the disappearance of the little girl and can do so without the British Police telling them how to conduct their investigation .Start by charging the mccanns with neglect Portugal , hold them in custody till their case comes up for hearing with no bail , then investigate the fraud fund they created , the fund that helped pay for their mortgage instead of using it to look out for their child , something it was set up for ! As for the pink "mouth piece" take him to Portugal and charge him for perverting the course of justice by trying to insinuate that the mccans are "responsible " parents and the other lies he has spewed to the press . As for SY send them back telling them to mind their own business it will save the UK tax payer a lot of money .

  57. the mccans claim Dr Amaral caused them "distress and pain" , the only thing Dr Amaral has done is fight for the truth , and yes Gerry and Kate are right , because once they get charged for neglect it will "distress" them to appear in court and cause them "pain" in the lengthy sentences they will serve the hideous pair of money grabbing creatures .

    I know what Redwood said, but assumed he was playing mind games to make the McCann's feel safe, thinking they weren't being looked at, while they gathered enough evidence to be certain they were involved, and then take the appropriate steps.
    I really can't understand why a couple of Doctors are being protected at the highest level. What is it, that they are involved in that affords them this level of protection???

  59. I would not be surprised if Madeleine had died earlier than the day reported missing, possibly on the night of all the crying and screaming heard by the lady upstairs, which she said stopped when the door opened and she assumed the parents came home. Maybe it was not the parents coming home, it was somebody departing, as children who have worked themselves up into such a fit of crying and then screaming, don't usually just stop so easily but have to be calmed down. As for the creche attendance, the women who worked there didn't really seem to know Madeleine as the description of her as being quiet and timid (on the boat ride), don't seem to fit other descriptions of her by her family as lively and boisterous. Even these women were not constantly in attendance as they came and went on and off duty taking turns in looking after the creche children, and anybody could sign a child in or out as the book was just left out for the parents to do so. Was there even a head count of the children, or any photos to prove Madeleine was there on the last couple of days, or still around, besides that photo taken by the pool with Gerry, said to be the 'last photo' which looks more like he had just arrived with his pale colouring, not somebody who had spent hours playing tennis outdoors. All those supposed witnesses, yet nothing seems to hang together, and the account by the McCanns has changed with the telling, locked apartment, unlocked apartment, cuddlecat on 'the shelf' which alerted Kate to the 'abduction', then cuddlecat was on the bed and not on the shelf, and so it goes on.

    Yet those blood and cadaver dogs are hard to beat since they were considered the best in the world, and had worked on hundreds of cases and never wrong. They indicated there had been a death in that apartment, but when and whose is the question, though nobody had ever been reported as having died there, and only Madeleine was missing. How SY can overlook that, and simply pronounce the McCanns and their pals are not suspects is beyond belief.

  60. If it turns out the McCanns were involved in the disappearance of Madeleine, they wont be done for 'neglect', as the time for being charged with that has probably run out after seven years. It will be charges related to the massive fraud of taking money from the public and others, by claiming they would be searching for their daughter knowing full well she was already dead, plus wasting police time and resources, etc. No doubt the book would be thrown at them, and it would have been better if they had admitted what had happened, if it had been an accident, in the first place.

    There would also be civil actions coming at them from all directions from people who had been defrauded by giving them money, they would not have enough money to pay for it all.

  61. And not to forget the tapas lot receiving damages from a newspaper. They have lied and lied for seven long years over the death of a little child. Jesus said, whoever harms one of these, it were better they had a millstone about their neck and were cast into the sea.

  62. Sempre achei que os pais deviam ter sido considerados suspeitos e constituídos arguidos desde o primeiro momento. Nunca percebi porque não o foram.
    Tiveram tempo e margem de manobra para fazer muitas coisas. Acredito que a verdade sobre este caso nunca se saberá e terá sido um crime perfeito.

  64. May the Devine light guide the Judge on her ruling of this case and rule in favour of Dr Amaral , hold back in custody the venomous pair and put all their assets in the UK for sale to compensate DR Amaral . The immaculate conception has appeared in both Lourdes in France and Fatima in Portugal and the venomous pair had no shame when they went to see the Pope , knowing what they done , NEGLECTED THEIR CHILDREN , a child is Gods gift in life , the venomous pair will find themselves facing worse persecution than they are putting DR Amaral through very soon , the persecution from both God and mans court very soon . As for redwood , he should read about what happened to the Police officer who persecuted the young girl Bernadette (Saint Bernadette ) in France I will not repeat what award he was given by the divine intervention . So all ye who protect the venomous duo think , think very hard what they are doing to an innocent Police officer who was only doing his Job in trying to establish the truth .
