Policemen consider that Kate McCann’s diary was made on purpose to influence the investigation into Maddie’s disappearance.
Several police sources that are connected to the process told Rádio Clube that Kate’s diary does not look like an intimate portrait, as would be usual, and that it seems to have been made on purpose to be found by the authorities. The diary was not distributed to the journalists but Radio Clube had access to the writings of Kate McCann.
The text starts on the day that the English couple arrived in the Algarve, and lasts until early August. A diary that was given little importance by the Polícia Judiciária. Still, it is possible to read about support, irritations and other curiosities. Listen to the piece from journalist Augusto Freitas de Sousa who describes some statements from Kate’s diary.
The pressures that the former coordinator of the process, Gonçalo Amaral, has been referring to are described in Kate McCann’s diary. Madeleine’s mother wrote that she left British prime minister Gordon Brown a message, to call and to increase the political pressure.
Furthermore, 20 days after the disappearance, it can be read in the diary that Gordon Brown spoke to Gerry more than once. Kate mentions the PJ, the journalists and the political pressures, and numerous clues that failed to reveal as important for the process.
