Kate McCann publishes her fundraising book called Madeleine later this year
Sunday March 20,2011
By James Murray

FORMER Portuguese police chief Goncalo Amaral is set for a new legal battle with Kate and Gerry McCann after writing a second book about their missing daughter Madeleine.

Mr Amaral’s book will be published in Portugal next month shortly before Kate McCann publishes her fundraising book called Madeleine.

It could not come at a worse time for Kate, 42. She is hoping someone who reads her book will come forward with information about the person who took her daughter on May 3, 2007.

The McCanns’ private investigator David Edgar is also preparing to beef up his team in Portugal to react swiftly to any new leads produced by Kate’s book. It goes on sale in Britain on May 12 and a week later in Portugal.

The McCanns have already fought a costly legal battle over Mr Amaral’s first book on the case. Called Maddie: The Truth Of The Lie, it was taken off the shelves for several months before being allowed back on sale.

On Friday the McCanns lost an appeal in Portugal’s Supreme Court to stop his first book from going back on the shelves there. The timing of this new book is just coincidental, nothing was planned
Goncalo Amaral’s wife Sofia said

In the book Mr Amaral put forward the theory that Madeleine had died in apartment 5a of the Ocean Club complex in Praia da Luz on the Algarve. His conclusion angered the McCanns, who insist there is no evidence to suggest Madeleine died there and they still hope she is alive.

Now the stage is set for a fresh legal battle. Mr Amaral’s wife Sofia said: “Goncalo has been working on his book for about six months, spending days and nights assessing all the evidence. He has put in an enormous amount of work. The title has not been decided and a publication date will be sorted out this week.

“At this stage he doesn’t want to say too much, but he will say his investigation was cut short and he will explain what he would have done if he had been allowed to continue. The book is not just about Madeleine. He gives the background to other big cases he was involved with.


“The timing of this new book is just coincidental, nothing was planned. We are not trying to cash in on the fourth anniversary of Madeleine’s disappearance and we do not want a fight over Kate’s book.”

Mr Amaral was a senior investigation officer in the case but was taken off it after criticising British police for an alleged lack of co-operation.

After resigning from the Policia Judiciaria, he has become a successful author in Portugal and regularly appears on television news. He has tried to publish The Truth Of The Lie in Britain but no publisher has accepted it for fear of being sued for libel.

Kate McCann is said to have been warned by her publisher to be careful of what she says about Mr Amaral. However, she does chronicle her frustration with him and her anger over the way he looked at the case.

The Sunday Express can also reveal that Mr Edgar has been making regular trips to Portugal to check out leads in recent months.

A source said: “The investigation is very active. There is a hope that Kate’s book will lead to someone coming forward with the key piece of the jigsaw

So Mr Amaral is set to publish a new book

IIRC, littlepixie had started a standalone thread on this. Yes, Amaral has stolen their thunder. Boy, the mccanns must be lividly furious.

Expect comments like: it is not helpful, in fact it is hurtful that Amaral is continuing in this vein which is hampering the search for Maddie.

Of course they conveniently forgot they are also penning a book which they slying termed 'fundraising book'.....blimey's only Ok if they do it. Others are not allowed to express their opinions. Get real mccanns!

Daily Express is doing a sterling job so far of coverage appeal not upheld -
just goes to show it doesnt pay to antagonise the Press.

Since presumably no UK publisher dares to take the risk to publish Amaral's Truth of the Lie, I am wondering if the UK papers were to acquire serialisation right for Amaral's book would that be considered libellous? Maybe serialisation can be selective avoiding passages stating mccanns were involved but include dogs evidence and other data on process in the files ..which should serve the purpose of putting across investigators version ..
Plus I'm thinking if mccanns were to apply for injunction to stop serialisation it would look bad for them and there is no guarantee injunction will be granted.

I hope it will be a question of time before that happens. A serialisation of Amaral's book at parallel time as rival paper covers serialisation of the km's book will be sensational sure to generate sales volume.

He seemed full of himself in that vid, but very quiet now. Don't count chickens and all that.

Blood and cadaver alerts

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
