Kate McCann launches book to «tell the truth»
Kate McCann says she wants to tell the «version of events» of the parents
McCann couple in a Lisbon court, last year, when they were trying to ban the former Judiciary Police coordinator, Gonçalo Amaral's book titled 'Maddie, The Truth of the Lie'
The mother of Madeleine McCann will launch a book with her daughter's name, on May 23 in Lisbon, four years after the disappearance of the child, which is marked on this Tuesday.
In a press note sent by their publicists in Portugal, quoted by Lusa news agency, Kate McCann states that the book was written with the objective of «telling the truth» and the «version of the events» of Maddie's parents.
The mother of the child added that «it was not an easy decision» to write the book 'Madeleine', each cent that results from the sales of this book will «revert to the investigation and search» for Madeleine.
«Nothing is more important to us than to find our little girl», Kate explained.
Her husband, Gerry McCann, said he was hopeful that the book «would help the investigation to find Madeleine in other ways too». «Our hope is to have an impact on those who have relevant information (consciously or not), to present it and to share it with our team. Someone has the key piece of the puzzle», he said.
The English girl disappeared on May 3, 2007, from the room where she slept with her twin siblings, whilst the parents dined with a group of friends in a near-by restaurant, from the tourist resort of the Ocean Club, in the village of Luz.
After 11 days of investigation, the Judiciary Police constituted an English citizen as arguido, Robert Murat, for suspicions of being involved in the case, but found no evidence to arrest him.
Without the body and the perpetrators of the crime, the Judiciary Police(PJ), who initially admitted the kidnapping, turned the course of the investigation in August 2007 towards the likely death of the child, with suspicions falling on the parents, Kate and Gerry, both doctors.
The turnaround in the investigation was based on biological evidence collected in the apartment and in the car rented by the McCann couple, 25 days after the disappearance of their daughter.
After having undergone several hours of questioning at the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the PJ in Portimão, Gerry and Kate McCann were constituted as arguidos.
In mid 2008, the prosecutor of the Republic archived the case, which will be reopened if new relevant data surfaces.
