Madeleine McCann: Selling Amaral’s Opinion As Faction

“I received numerous messages of support and solidarity since being taken off the case, including from the UK – messages that also motivated me to tell people what I knew about the Maddie case. I am positive that there’s also a section of the public eager to know the truth.”

We all want to know the “truth”. So, Senor, what happened to Madeleine McCann?

“People can form their opinion without the manipulation that we have seen before.”

An opinion? We want the truth. We want the facts.

Asked whether he thought Madeleine was dead, he said: “It is not just my opinion. A whole team of Portuguese and British investigators came to that conclusion last year, and this is part of the files. I have never said the couple killed their daughter and this is not my belief. Deaths may happen for natural reasons, accident or intervention by a third party.”

A conclusion based on opinion. Such are the facts…

He said he was unperturbed by the threat of any legal action from the McCann family. “There is no reason for that. The details exposed in the book are facts, happenings and objective data which figure in the process and not lies, as they have been described in the press.”


He denied he was profiting from the tragic case. “The biggest thing I achieved with this book was to defend my honour and that of those who worked with me. The way I see it, you cannot put a price on dignity. The other objective of the book is to contribute to the search for the truth.”

RRP: 15.99. Dignity: Priceless.

Clarence Mitchell, a spokesman for the McCanns, said last night: “Lawyers for Kate and Gerry have been aware of what Mr Amaral has been alleging for some time. What he has said and written before now is grossly defamatory of them.

“If he chooses to publish them in Britain those words will be studied intensely carefully and they will not hesitate to act if they are defamatory.”

Any publisher out there want to take on Team McCann?

METRO: “Murat accepts ‘Madeleine’ damages”

Robert Murat has accepted substantial undisclosed libel damages over an allegation that there were strong grounds for believing that he was guilty of abducting Madeleine McCann.

Mr Murat was not at London’s High Court for the settlement of his action against British Sky Broadcasting Ltd.

An innocent man had his life ruined by lies, smears and speculation. What price that? Any opinion, Mr Amaral…
