Madeleine McCann: Amaral’s Book Banned

amaral-book4GONCALO Amaral’s book on the Madeleine McCann case, The Truth Of The Lie, has been banned.

The McCanns’ Spokesman Clarence Mitchell said the couple were “absolutely delighted“.

A judge at Lisbon’s main civil court outlawed any further sales or publications of the book.

Says Clarence Mitchell:

“Kate and Gerry McCann are absolutely delighted that the judge in Portugal has done the right thing by granting this injunction.”

Copyright for the book and film must also be handed over to the McCanns’ lawyer.

It bans him from repeating any of his claims about the McCann family and applies to a TV programme he produced earlier this year.

Mr Amaral, the former policeman, has to make it so that all unsold copies of his tome are removed from points of sale and distribution across Europe or face a 1,000 euro-a-day (£877) fine.

If he can find them…

Mr Amaral says he does not believe the McCanns’ account that Madeleine was kidnapped. But he was not paid to believe – he was paid to discover the facts. And he failed.

And instead of facts, we got more speculation. All we know is that McCanns are innocent; the police have proven no crime too place; there are no suspects; and Madeleine McCann is misisng.
