Former Portugal President believes that if the Suspicions in Amaral's Book are true the McCanns Process should be Re-Opened
Jorge Sampaio, the former President of the Republic of Portugal believes that if the suspicions presented in Amaral's book are true they should have been used to reopen the process and not to write a book.
With the process archived and the controversy in the bookshops, the case Maddie keeps on causing several reactions. The most recent comes from the former president of the Republic.
Jorge Sampaio does not confirm if he already read or intends to read the book of Gonçalo Amaral, but he confessed that he is surprised with another one of the protagonists of this case.
The national former director of the Judiciary Police considered the archiving of the case to be hasty, but before, still at the commands of the Judiciary he used the same word, haste, to classify one of the high moments of the investigations.
Jorge Sampaio joins now the chorus of criticism to Alípio Ribeiro.
