The vilifying of Goncalo Amaral

Post  dragonfly on Sun 17 Apr - 15:53

Im recently new to this forum and have found this site rather interesting, and have found it to have more up to date information on here,
Then the official Find Madeleine one (the last update being 17 Dec 2010)
Well what first took my interest about this tragic case , aside of the fact on Gordon Brown and the Pope getting involved (which I did find rather odd regarding how many children go missing each year ) What made me question things was the banning of Goncalo Amaral's book, So I watched the truth of a lie,
and am disgusted how Goncalo Amaral has been treated and the impact this has had on so many peoples lives, through no fault of his own he has been dragged in to this, due to two parents leaving three children alone,

Now this Official Find Madeleine Facebook page Im shocked at who is running this page and the promotion of one particular link on their page

Here are some extracts of the link The Official Find Madeleine Facebook page promote to their followers

‘The truth of the Lie’ by Amaral, has sold several million copies to date, netting him somewhere in the region of 1.2 million euros in royalties. The McCann’s search fund, at one point, topped over two million pounds. Since then the McCanns have been completely open and transparent with the funds, publishing a full annual account in the press for the scrutiny of the public. Amaral, however, has yet, as far as I know, to do the same. If he did promise to make a payment to children’s charities it has, so far, yet to be made good. So what HAS Amaral done with all his profits? At this point I think it time to point out that one of the more common accusations levelled at the McCanns is that they are publicity seekers. Please bear that in mind for the moment, as we return to Amaral. I wish to show you two pictures of this individual, one from before he wrote his book, and one after. Let us look at the first. (pictures can be found on link)

Note the jeans, the bulging shirt opened to reveal a gold chain, the ill-fitting jacket, rather unkempt hair and untrimmed moustache. To be fair he may not have realised he was being photographed at that particular time, but let’s face it, he is exuding a slovenly, scruffy and unkempt look. Still on a standard PJ wage, he is yet to capitalise on his experience with Madeleine and her parents. Now lets look at another, more recent picture, post authoring his version of the events of 3rd May, 2007.

An altogether different appearance, don’t you think? A very smart, expensive and tailored suit, with matching hat. Gone is the shabby shirt, to be replaced with collar and tie. Clean shaven, and the moustache removed. Every inch the suave, sophisticated man about town. In short, the appearance of a wealthy man. And where did this new found wealth Amaral is so clearly and deliberately flaunting come from? The profits from his book, that’s where. In addition, we know he spent money on a brand new car, a top of the line Jaguar. For his birthday he held a large and elaborate birthday party, with many guests, lavishing them with what some called a spectacular fireworks display. Oh yes, and he had his ear pierced with a diamond stud! All paid for by Madeleine.

And the McCanns? Have THEY sought to change THEIR social status, or make good from Madeleine’s abduction? Well, if they have bought a new car I am not aware of it. If they have it is likely to be nothing more than an ordinary family saloon, paid out of their own wages, not a flash sporty job like Amaral splashed out on. They are not seen in expensive designer clothes, or dripping with tacky jewellery. No elaborate, firework illuminated birthday bashes for them. No round the world cruises, nor buying second homes on the continent.

And this is being promoted by the Official Find Madeleine page?

What lows have to be reached for the official page to promote this? judging someone on their hair dress sense, facial hair ect,
So wearing an open shirt and a gold chain is ok to mock judge someone?, but dont mention the health and safety and welfare of three children being left alone while the parents are out drinking with their mates and having tapas UNBELIEVABLE
