Madeleine McCann: A Date For Amaral’s Libel Case, Kate’s Diary And Blaming The Gypsies

by | 14th, December 2011

MADELEINE McCann: The McCanns’ libel case against Goncalo Amaral Sky calls him the Portuguese police officer who bungled the hunt for missing Madeleine” will take place in Lisbon on February 9 and 10.

Sky News , sister organ to the NoTW , is scathing of the former detective who wrote the book The Truth Of  The Lie. It has sold over 300,000 copies.

The 52-year-old former detective has made a fortune selling a book and TV documentary claiming the young British girl is dead – and wrongly claiming her parents staged a cover-up.

The McCanns says Mr Amaral is self-obsessed “. Is is fairly treated by the British media ?

The McCanns have always strongly denied his allegation and in a 36-page writ lodged in June 2009, they accuse Mr Amaral of libel and breaching their human rights.

An unnaamed source is quoted:

“Mr Amaral has made the McCann family’s life hell and he has made himself rich in the process. Kate and Gerry want to stop him spouting his malicious lies about them and to stop him profiting from their pain, and the only way to do that is by going to court.”

The McCanns say Mr Amaral allegations left them totally destroyed “.

The McCanns are seeking at least 1.2m euros (£1m) in damages from the ex-policeman, and if they win the case the money will go towards the search for Madeleine…

The country’s attorney general Jose Pinto Monteiro has cleared the McCanns of any wrongdoing over Madeleine’s disappearance.

This case is risky for the McCanns.

In other news, a Spanish site called The Olive Press reports:

Gypsy link to Maddie

How so?

BRITISH detectives are to return to Spain to investigate a possible gypsy link in the disappearance of Maddie McCann.

Round up the usual suspects. No proof that any gypsy did anything to Our Maddie. But, what the hell, no-one likes the gypsies, do they. What matter that you defame an entire race? And Maddie was being spotted pretty much everywhere .

A team from Scotland Yard have already spent three days looking into claims that the youngster was smuggled into Spain and taken to Barcelona… Now they are reported to be returning to investigate the theory that she was snatched by a child kidnap gang run by gypsies.

Reported where is not said. We can find no record
