Gonçalo Amaral: 'McCanns are getting desperate'
The former coordinator of the Judiciary Police, Gonçalo Amaral, responsible for investigating Maddie's disappearance said the "McCann are getting desperate". Amaral therefore responds to the accusations made by the couple who today [yesterday] guaranteed that they would bring a criminal action against the former coordinator of the PJ Criminal Investigation Department in Portimão for the alleged breach of confidentiality by reproducing facts pertaining to the investigation [process] in the book "Maddie - The Truth of Lie" before the decision to archive.
Isabel Duarte, the McCanns' lawyer, said Friday that the action of Kate and Gerry McCann will be made "next week" after extracting a certificate from the trial that banned the book by the former Inspector of Judiciary Police (PJ), taking place at Palácio of Justiça, in Lisbon.
"The McCann couple were badly advised by their lawyers, things are going the worst possible in court, even the very British press has begun to review its position on the Maddie case and now the tactic is one of despair, 'fuite-en-avant' [headlong rush] and make another complaint against Gonçalo Amaral to see if the little girl appears", said ironically the former coordinator surprised by the news of a new complaint.
The couple's lawyer remembered that it was established on Wednesday's hearing that the book, which defends the thesis of the McCanns of involvement in their daughter's disappearance on 3 May 2007 in Praia da Luz, Algarve, was concluded on 24 July 2008 at the publishers Guerra e Paz, also a target in this process as well as TVI.
