Madeleine McCann detective claims investigation was 'tainted' as soon as it was an 'abduction'

Madeleine McCann detective claims investigation was 'tainted' as soon as it was an 'abduction'

Goncalo Amaral says Portuguese prosecutors felt ‘intimidated by the United Kingdom’ and claims Kate and Gerry McCann were given special treatment by British authorities
The former Portuguese detective who led the probe into Madeleine McCann’s disappearance a decade ago claims the investigation was tainted as soon as it was deemed an ‘abduction’.
Goncalo Amaral says Portuguese prosecutors felt ‘intimidated by the United Kingdom’ and claims Kate and Gerry McCann were given special treatment by British authorities because they were doctors.

The ex-policeman refuted claims his officers’ probe was shoddy and says interference from the UK hindered the process.
He maintains devastated parents Kate and Gerry were involved in three-year-old Maddie’s disappearance on May 3 2007 in Praia da luz.
The former officer also pointed the finger at the British class system in an interview which will be aired on Portuguese news channel CMTV on Monday.

He told Portuguese magazine Sábado: “They belong to the upper-middle class and the British do not like their doctors to mess up abroad and get convicted for it.”
Retired Amaral, who was removed as head of the probe after criticising British detectives, claimed UK authorities tried to rush the process.
He said: “It is not normal for an ambassador from a foreign country to come to the place to push in the sense that ‘this has to be quick’.
“If the ambassador and even the consul had not appeared, the investigation would have been directed to what is normal - to suspect those who have responsibility for the custody of the child.
“(The) Judiciary, Public Prosecutor’s Office and the government felt intimidated by the United Kingdom.
“The mistake was the statement about the abduction. It was almost a lack of respect to make the decision (that it was an abduction) and to make it public.”
Portuguese detectives said on May 5 2007 - just two days after her disappearance - that they believed she was still alive in the country after being abducted.
Then director of the Policia Judiciaria Guilhermino Encarnacao made the announcement, stating officers were working on the assumption Maddie was being held between 1.8 and 3.1 miles from the resort.
One eyewitness told the Mirror Portuguese police arrived on the scene at the Ocean Club complex some 90 minutes after Madeleine vanished.
Our source also accused police of messing up key witness statements taken in the days after the tragedy.
But Amaral denies Portuguese police made a string of errors, instead accusing British police of trying to ‘protect’ the McCanns.
Amaral said: “When the couple left, the British police who were here to cooperate and help also left. The feeling was that the British police were here to protect the couple.”
Amaral accused Portuguese police of now ‘doing the politically correct’ thing by following Scotland Yard’s lines of enquiry, to ensure they do not compromise relations between the UK and Portugal.
He said: “The management of the Policia Judiciária and the prosecutor himself are doing the politically correct.
“In the United Kingdom and here the direction of the police walked with Scotland Yard. Do not investigate anything that might compromise your parents or friends. It is a mistake.”

It is like breathing fresh air to have Goncalo Amaral given some column inches in the UK MSM

Well done Matthew Young I say!

Yes, it would be great if other journalists started to show the other side of the story.

What is so very good about being British is that a lot of us have an inherent sense of fair play, which is why Goncalo Amaral was not dismissed as the sardine munching shoestring from the backwaters of some third world existence which the McCann PR machine propagates to this day.

It was largely ordinary British folk who funded Goncalo Amaral, including retired and serving officers of the Metropolitan Police.

The latest onslaught in the media is to be expected. Dirty campaigns do that.

I can't commit to the honesty of any tabloid. To congratulate a tabloid for a single story doesn't make sense to me. A spoon-fed, lazy, greedy and manipulative media will turn on anyone at any time.

It's about selling newspapers and not about demanding truth and justice.

Just my opinion of course.

I'm just wondering what else they didn't print.

This was from the SABADO print special that was available yesterday in Portugal. There doesn't seem to be any copy of it online as far as I can see, no one has uploaded it anywhere.  I think much more was probably said.

The Daily Mail;  they have managed not to insult him even once!

".....He was moved off the case and resigned six months later but wrote his book using police files as he put forward a theory she had died in the apartment. 


The McCanns took legal action, saying there was no evidence and his work was defamatory.
The appeal hearing in Lisbon which ruled against the McCanns was held in private.


Mr Amaral, 56, who the McCanns first sued for libel in June 2009, won the lengthy legal fight after judges decided he had the 'right to freedom of expression'.


Earlier this week, British detectives announced they had a 'significant' line of inquiry in the case, ten years after the youngster went missing.
Scotland Yard chief Mark Rowley said there are still 'critical' leads that are of 'great interest' in the investigation.


He also ruled out that Gerry and Kate McCann were involved in her abduction and said she could still be alive.
But described the possibility of a 'burglary gone wrong' as a 'sensible hypothesis' which has not been 'entirely ruled out'."

This case demonstrates the number of people who are prepared to make public fools of themselves. Do any of them believe the nonsense they peddle or are made to peddle? 
A burglary gone wrong is a corker. Is he suggesting a burglar though it a good idea to take Madeleine's body with him or have the dogs been whooshed along with several other truths?

The Mirror cannot agree with the Sun in cases of controversy, The latter had a 4 page pull out regurgitating paedophile employees 1 killed in a tractor accident, burglars having chloroform to silence children when they awake during a job. Absolutely nonsensical drivel. At least the Mirror (whon I cannot stand) focussed upon the statements given by GA.  However didn't the Mirror publish the story entitled "Madeleine home by christmas"?
