Gonçalo Amaral: New book Empty When is the other one coming out?

Post by tigger on 31.10.11 18:42

'The English Gag' - has that been translated yet? I could read it in French if necessary...

Wouldn't it be the most wonderful twist if Dr. Amaral became an international Ambassador for Children's Rights? The very job the McCanns were after within months of Maddie's disappearance. Also if his books and yet others he could write, were world best sellers?
The McCanns never need to go to prison, they'll be in hell anyway. They're not too happy with things as they are in any case.

'The English Gag' purported to be an account of how the British authorities, at quite a high level, interefered with the Portuguese investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann. It is almost astonishing that, so far as I am aware, there has not yet even been a summary of its contents published.

For those of us researching what really happened to Madeleine, Goncalo Amaral's 'Truth About A Lie' book is a valuable source document, with detailed information about what the Portuguese detectives uncovered.

It would surely be to our advantage if someone could at least summarise its contents in English.

Grenville Green when he was MF's Chairman went to Lisbon to support Goncalo Amaral and bought a copy of his book, in Portuguese of course.

Gonçalo Amaral: New book Empty preface

Post by russiandoll on 06.11.11 15:56

cant find a summary as yet but here is the preface wriiten by Francisco Moita Flores, former PJ inspector, now a mayor and a renowned criminologist and author :



Locard’s Truth

Gonçalo Amaral: New book CapaI
read this outcry for freedom by Gonçalo Amaral at a time when the
country wallows, and when I say the country, I say the politicians, some
characters within the judiciary system supplying the pyrotechnical
material for the fireworks that the media launch every day around the
‘Face Oculta’ process [major corruption scandal presently being
investigated in Portugal]. And it is the greatest example of hypocrisy.
Exactly the same newspapers, the same columnists, who in the name of
respect for the parents’ «pain», in the name of respect for arguidos
with no other coercion measure, practically imposed the end of any
newscast about Maddie, they are exactly the same that, forgetting today
what they had said yesterday, flog personalities from the areas of
politics or economy with suspicions, half truths and hearsay, based on
wiretaps that nobody knows, savagely destroying the character and honour
of their targets.

Two weights and two measures. And now, after
reading this painful, nostalgic, and yet brave book, following a
temporary injunction against ‘Maddie – The Truth of the Lie’, accepted
by a Portuguese court, I understand even better what I always
understood: the McCann couple’s strategy, since the first day of their
media folklore, never had any other purpose: to discredit the Portuguese
Justice, the Portuguese Police, and, fundamentally, Gonçalo Amaral, the
man who knew the most, and still does, about what they did. And what
they didn’t.

Gonçalo Amaral is not a fictional character. He is
the boldness of truth. He is the challenge of truth. Even if he doesn’t
fully know it. He knows what nobody else does, about Maddie’s hidden
destiny. And it’s no use to try to conceal the sun with a sieve, which
seems to be the child’s parents’ only obsession, because like Sherlock
Holmes invariably replied to his unavoidable friend Dr. Watson, the
method of deduction, applied to facts, as long as they are seen in
connection, becomes elementary, even for the most stupid living beings,
that if action A produced result B, if result B is coherent with
consequence C, then A is related to C. It is elementary! Aristotle
formulated this reasoning in the shape of syllogisms, Edmond Locard, the
father of modern criminal investigation, recovered it to become the
instrument of all investigation police forces worldwide, and the results
are there.

Even CSI, written under the shape of future fiction,
evokes Locard. He is the true God of criminal investigation. Without
exception. Be it for the Portuguese PJ, the FBI, the Scotland Yard.
There is only one exception. It applies to all criminal cases except to
the disappearance of Maddie. The exception. The divine exception which
protects the parents to continue the farce. Since the beginning of the
investigation. None of what has been explained by the hired
«detectives», none of what is related to the reconstitution of facts,
more or less proved, none of what is advanced by the «spin’s», hired
journalists, protective political chains, manages to resist the
implacable evidential logic of Edmond Locard. The instrument which
Gonçalo Amaral used. Nothing escapes it. Neither the «moral»
indignation, nor the silly piety, nor faith, nor propaganda, or any
injunction, manages to trample over what life produces, as such, and
Locard never ceased to be right. Just like Gonçalo Amaral. Just like all
professional policemen who know, who are competent, who master the
techniques of criminal investigation.

Gonçalo Amaral lives in the
artlessness of the very best policemen. He believes that working so
uninterestedly, in such an selfless way, where only the solution of the
enigma matters, he didn’t pay attention to the dark manoeuvres, he
didn’t realise that behind every column that was written against him,
behind every indignant comment or editorial, behind every report that
was serving the McCanns’ sieve, a current of sinister associations and
complicities was organising itself, which had nothing to do with the
material truth, or the investigation into the mysterious disappearance.
The ingenuity of those who love their job and deliver themselves to
their profession in an unconditional way.

Gonçalo Amaral never
realised that nothing was done, apart from him and his team, to solve
the case. On the contrary. Everything was done, from propaganda to
commissioned detectives, to screw up his case. Nothing else mattered.

And
one just has to look at the results. After all the silences, after all
the interviews, after all the «reputed» detectives, after millions of
euros, after the Pope’s blessing, and his negation, after so many words,
squeezed to the last drop, that what has been advanced since the day
that the process ended was zero. ZERO! That is to say, everything was
done to shut up Gonçalo Amaral. Nothing was done to discover the truth.
And the abduction theory, now the injunction, just like all the other
pieces of this farce, had only one goal, just one: to tell the world
that the little girl’s parents are saints and that the bad guy, the
really bad guy, in this story is the policeman.

But Locard is
right. Here and anywhere else in the world. And therefore, just like
Galileo, Gonçalo Amaral is right. Even if it takes years (in Galileo’s
case it took centuries) to demonstrate that he is right. Despite all
mystifications, all insinuations, all calumnies, all injunctions, the
truth, the only truth, that remains to be discovered is the time at
which everything happened and the destiny that befell the pitiful child.

There
is no inquisition, no censorship, no rhetoric, no ridiculous staging of
shamelessly moralist and lying statements, no falsehoods, no little
pieties that can violate Locard. The most cruel of all investigators.
The one to whom the entire world owes the discovery of the method that
became indifferent to witness statement or confession. The Truth is
there, even if others persist, and sanction it, as a Lie. The world of
material truth, taken from laboratories, pulled from Aristotle’s
syllogisms, reconstructed with the methods of scientific police, has no
pity for tears and no mercy for staging. Not even official censorship
can silence what is built by life, the material testimonies, no matter
how small, tear down the most staged and plentiful weeping.

It is
certain that the process did not reach absolute conclusions. It is
true. The formalism of the process imposes itself to the substance of
evidence. But do not try to deceive yet another truth. Because it did
not reach its end, but it went a long way. In another country, maybe it
would have been enough for a condemnatory decision. Not here. There are
no condemned. All are innocent. In the shape of law. Although those who
carry out criminal investigations know that not a single law can change
the entropy of life. Which is, after all, its greatest wealth which the
poverty of norm never succeeds in capturing.

russiandoll

Yes, thank you for this summary - it is very powerful even for a summary.

Locard's exchange principle
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

“ Wherever he steps, whatever he touches, whatever he leaves, even unconsciously, will serve as a silent witness against him. Not only his fingerprints or his footprints, but his hair, the fibers from his clothes, the glass he breaks, the tool mark he leaves, the paint he scratches, the blood or semen he deposits or collects. All of these and more, bear mute witness against him. This is evidence that does not forget. It is not confused by the excitement of the moment. It is not absent because human witnesses are. It is factual evidence. Physical evidence cannot be wrong, it cannot perjure itself, it cannot be wholly absent. Only human failure to find it, study and understand it, can diminish its value. ”
—Paul L. Kirk. 1953. Crime investigation: physical evidence and the police laboratory. Interscience Publishers, Inc.: New York.

Post by russiandoll on 08.11.11 12:05

Sorry if I have made a mistake, I thought the English Gag was his about to be published new book, only ever read a translation of one other, The Truth about the Lie....I realise the English Gag was written and due for publication a couple of years ago, but thought it had been held back due to all the recent legal trouble over the other one.
Could someone please let me know about a different title, I will go and root around and post about whatever I find that G Amaral has written about the Madeleine McCann case.

Gonçalo Amaral: New book Empty Gonçalo Amaral has released a guide to cases of disappearance and abduction

Post by Gillyspot on 12.11.11 13:56

From an article published today.

"" Lives without defense "is the title of the new book by Gonçalo Amaral, former coordinator of the Judicial Police (PJ) who led the investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.
Presented on Friday in Lisbon, the book has a preface of the psychologist Paulo Sargento and brings together an important collection of documents on the investigation into the disappearance, kidnapping and child abuse in Portugal and abroad.
Marked by the case which led him to abandon PJ, Amaral included in his book numerous references to the Maddie case and a guide for parents, educators and guardians of children missing or abducted.
Another feature in the book the former coordinator prepares a guide for practitioners on the criminal investigation of the critical phase of the abduction of children "- the manual methodology that did not exist in May 2007 when Madeleine McCann disappeared in Praia da Luz

Gonçalo Amaral points out the limitations of the law and the failures of the national model of intervention - Picture of Paul Henriques.

The disappearance of Maddie, the triple homicide of Santa Comba Dao, the crimes of King Ghoba and death of Joan in Figueira (Portimão) are just some of the cases that formed the basis of the work now published by Goncalo Amaral.

"One More provocation"

In the UK, a source close to Maddie's parents Kate and Gerry McCann, confirmed that the couple and their lawyers "follow closely" the interventions of Gonçalo Amaral.
"I am sure that Kate and Gerry do not know the contents of the book. But it is certain that the lawyers are going to pay attention to everything involving the couple and their daughter's disappearance, "said one source who, faced with the book cover, stressed that the choice was" more a provocation. "
Kate and Gerry McCann, continue to ensure the promotion of "Madeleine," must return to Portugal in February next year to return to face in the process that Gonçalo Amaral move against the former PJ coordinator."

It was in Portuguese and translated using google translator so may not read totally right.

How can they possibly think they have an issue with the cover? It is a teddy-bear and the book is about missing children.... Or have they copy-righted the entire concept of stuffed animals?!

It's 'The Truth about the Lie' that's translated on that link, not 'The English Gag'.
