Gonçalo Amaral: An interview with Semanário Privado

“The apprehension of my book only gives me more strength to discover the truth about the Maddie case”

Gonçalo
Amaral is going to request the political parties and the Republic’s
President an audience, after his book “Maddie – The Truth about the
Lie” was ordered apprehended by a judge at Lisbon’s Civil Court. The
former inspector thinks that freedom of expression is under threat, at
a time when new facts concerning Maddie’s disappearance may come to
light

by José Leite

How do you comment on the
apprehension of your book, “Maddie – The Truth about the Lie”? Do you
think there’s the “hand” of the McCanns in this? Has the book started
to be apprehended from the stores?

My comment is a concerned
one, as an author and as a citizen who still holds his full civil
rights. I remind you that I left the PJ in June last year, in order to
recover my freedom of expression and that, 15 months later, they want
to strip me of that freedom. The “hand” is evident: those persons filed
the request for the injunction. I have no idea if the book has started
to be apprehended, the fact is that it hadn’t been sold for months and
now it seems to be sold out.

How many copies have been sold?

I
don’t know the number of copies that have been sold, it seems that
those persons know more than I do, they must hold privileged
information.

If your appeal wins, do you intend to sue the judge who prohibited the sale of your book, and the McCanns, over the damages?

As
you know, it is not yet possible, in this democratic, lawful country,
to notify judicial decisions through the media, at least when those
affect and restrict fundamental rights. I will not pronounce myself
about the illustrious judge, because I respect, obey and believe in the
judicial system, and mainly because I do not know the fundament and the
contents of the decision. As far as the authors of the injunction are
concerned, I will exercise my rights, whether in a civil or in a
criminal court.

When you mention limitations on the freedom of
expression in Portugal, are you solely referring to your case, or also
to other recent cases, like that of TVI? Or the processes that were
filed against “bloggers” who disturbed the socialist power, especially
José Sócrates?

It’s not me that says it, it’s the politicians
who speak about an asphyxia of democracy in this 21st century Portugal,
35 years after the [revolution of the] 25th of April. There are
limitations to the freedom of expression, there are journalists who are
prevented from informing, this is a tragic reality. On the other hand,
I do not point my finger at any specific party, the limitations come
from those in power, who are possibly disturbed by the objectivity and
the freedom that assists those who write and who have the duty to
inform. As an attentive citizen, my opinion is that the concentration
and the monopoly of the media have prompted a crisis and are limiting
the freedom of information, of opinion and of expression. The
journalists have become employees of corporations, more interested in
profit than in informing (maybe not in its entirety, but it is close).

Has anyone at the PJ shown his or her solidarity with what has happened to you?

My
friends stand with me. As far as others are concerned, it needs to be
recalled that the PJ, just like other institutions, is going through an
electoral period and some fear changes, therefore no major solidarity
should be expected from there.

When will the English version of the book be launched?

It will be launched, that is all that I can tell you right now.

Do
you think it was a mere coincidence, the fact that the judge who
decided over the apprehension of your book was the same who condemned
the Portuguese State to pay 131 thousand euro of compensation to Paulo
Pedroso?

I trust the judicial system and its independence,
therefore I’m not commenting on the coincidence, which is probably just
that, but we are attentive.

Don’t you think that there is a
personal persecution against you, after you saw your pretension to run
for mayor for the Algarve’s PSD, dismissed?

That’s a good
question. Two or three days before the president of PSD vetoed my name,
the now author of the injunction was in Lisbon. According to what is
being said, he met with his then lawyer and with a politician from that
party. We are interested in confirming said meeting and its relation
with the decision that affected my civil right to be elected.

What hidden interests – masonry, national and international political lobbies – are moving in order to set you up?

I’m
not a fan of conspiracy theories, there may be coincidences concerning
the people who are trying to destroy me, but on the other hand, I have
been receiving support from people who are connected to the masonry. I
do not believe in any concerted effort to destroy me, this is something
personal, not organised.

Should Maddie’s parents worry about the
fact that Gonçalo Amaral mentioned that he is going to continue, in
private, to investigate the case of the disappearance of little Maddie?
What passage of your book may have disturbed them most?

The
authors of the injunction are worried about the fact that I am a rather
experienced criminal investigator. My book tells about that experience
and knowledge. Many books have been published about the little girl’s
disappearance, some more aggressive and more violent, but written by
journalists, and they were not targeted by any injunction. The authors
of the injunction fear my knowledge and my experience.

One of
the new facts that have already been revealed by our newspaper – and
that was also mentioned during the McCanns’ interview with Oprah
Winfrey – concerns a blanket that disappeared from the Ocean Club and
that, allegedly, was used as a shroud during a funeral. Could that be
one of the worries for those who persist in preventing the discovery of
the entire truth about what happened to little Maddie?

I’ll
explain: this child, like so many others of her age, slept with a
certain blanket and with a certain soft toy. During that interview that
you mention, the interviewer spoke to the mother, saying that she knew
about her concern in knowing if the abductor covered her with “her
blanket”. So far, nothing much. Now notice this, the blanket was left
behind when the disappearance happened. There is documentation that
proves that it was not taken with her, and there is no known testimony
saying that it was seen when she was being carried away in a man’s arms.
What
is being asked is the following: Was this a gaffe by the interviewer?
Was “her blanket” the one that was left behind? How did “her blanket”
go back to the child? These are the questions that need an answer and
at the very least, they may indicate that there is something wrong.


Is there any other fact in the process that should be investigated further?

Yes.
To find out why the soft toy that the little girl used the most – and
that was later used by Kate McCann in all of her public appearances –
was washed before the sniffer dogs, that are experts in detecting
cadaver odour, arrived in Portugal.

Do you continue to defend that the key to the mystery lies in Aldeia da Luz?

We
have no doubts whatsoever. That is where the little girl disappeared
from and where she was seen for the last time. A reconstruction is
still necessary.

Does this episode of the veto on the book give
you strength to proceed with your investigation, or to publish more
books about this case?

They want to destroy me. They started out
by attacking my good name, my honour and my professional pride. Now
they want to attack my patrimony, apart from affecting my civil rights,
the freedom of expression and of opinion. What is still left is freedom
and life, will the next step be an attack against those? I have reasons
to be afraid, but they won’t shut me up, and this sad and worrying
episode will give me strength to proceed and to contribute towards the
discovery of the truth and the fulfilment of justice. God protect me,
but they won’t shut me up.


Attorney General receives information that may reopen the Maddie case

We have been informed that psychologist Paulo Sargento, a regular
commentator of the Maddie case on television, has sent the Republic’s
Attorney General a letter with information that may reopen the “Maddie
case” process.

Although he declined to reveal the contents of
this letter, he advanced that there is something “very important”
concerning the cuddle cat (Maddie’s soft toy, that Kate often carried
with her during her media appearances), an object which, as has been
made public, was positively signalled with cadaver odour by the sniffer
dogs. Together with “Maddie’s blanket”, the pink soft toy may be a
starting point to reopen the process “at a time when, apart from an
attempt to silence Gonçalo Amaral, through an injunction against his
book ‘The Truth about the Lie’, a shameful picture of an attack on the
family of the former inspector, by the British media, is starting to
emerge”, the psychologist told Semanário Privado.

It's strange isn't it that now Mr Ameral wants freedom of information, of opinion and of expression- but when Kate and Gerry McCann wanted it some two and a half years ago it was against the law. I think the words 'double standards' comes into play here!!

I am a not-that-well informed citizen and this transcription from a paper edition of a Semanário Privado made my eye brows to raise (both) along with my lower jaw to fall. So I googled.

Semanário Privado was launched (paper edition) last 1st of July, with 'bombastic' news on its first page about the "Maddie case", "a blanket missing from the Ocean Club and used for a secret funeral" and "Praia da Luz priest suspect of sexual abuse".










Terça-feira, 30 de Junho de 2009

O jornal avança ainda com uma história sobre o passado «sombra» de Américo Amorim, um dos homens mais ricos de Portugal, e escreve que a Polícia Judiciária está a segur o rasto do dinheiro de quatro jogadores do Boavista, nomeadamente Bosingwa.
Com o lema «a verdade, doa a quem doer», o Semanário Privado tem preço de capa 1 euros, 24 páginas, uma tiragem de 30 mil exemplares e é distribuído pela «Logista Publicações».

So, one must never underestimate these ******* (no idea of the word under the *s, my command of english is not that good; please choose whichever word you feel is more appropriate). When was the case against Amaral presented to court? They are fast organising themselves, hey? and you can find politicians linked to this garbagge, both from extreme right and extreme left (same thing, someone one once said), the name of an 'anonymous' who signed a letter sent to PJ (again???) denouncing corruption on the eve of former elections and that couldn't be proved till these upcoming elections and naturally had to come up in time to undermine PM reputation (again...).

In what concerns Madeleine and the family, I think this cr#p should be directed to the lawyers urgently, including this number 0 and number 1.

PELUCHE GUARDA SEGREDO


«Por que motivo foi lavado o peluche que a menina usava antes da chegada a Portugal dos cães ingleses especialistas em farejar odor a cadáver?» - interroga Gonçalo Amaral em entrevista, onde revela outros factos que podem reabrir o processo.
O ex-inspector vai, ainda, pedir uma audiência aos partidos políticos e ao Presidente da República depois de o seu livro, «Maddie-A Verdade da Mentira» ter sido mandado apreender por ordem de uma juíza do Tribunal Cível de Lisboa. O ex-inspector acha que a liberdade de expressão está ameacada, numa altura em que novos factos respeitantes ao desaparecimento de Maddie podem vir à ribalta.

And by the way, does anyone know the names of journalists and managers of Tal&Qual, the paper that went bust just before the family could sue them? Yes, I know I should know, but I never touched it, so... forgive me. Do any, some or all coincide?

Is this what Amaral is now reduced to as his popularity wanes?

amaral can end this anytime he wants, just by producing the body. He DOES know where the body is, doesn't he? After all, that's what he claimed months ago, and that he was just about to produce it. So, why hasn't he? Where IS the body, gonzo?

The answer is simple: he doesn´t know where the body is, because there is NO body, there is NO evidence to prove his theory.

Amaral said:

"I will not pronounce myself about the illustrious judge, because I respect, obey and believe in the judicial system"

Isn't that contradictory to what he said during/after his trial ? I recall him saying something completely opposite to the above. Anyone else remember this ?

Does everyone else think that 'her blanket' doesnt refer to the blanket that was covering her in bed the night she was abducted? I think this is an English vs Portuguese comprehension thing.

I have seen the Oprah interview, and I am pretty sure Kate was not referring to the blanket left behind. I dont have time to watch it now, but will try to find it (I have it recorded) and see exactly what was said. This is assuming it is the Oprah interview that the misquote comes from.

For non English speakers, "her blanket" refers to any blanket being used to cover her at the time, not a specific blanket. So if Kate said something like 'I hope the person who has Madeleine covers her at night with her blanket', it in no way refers to a favourite blanket Madeleine may have had, but instead refers to Madeleine being covered with the blanket on the bed she is sleeping in (which in english is 'her bed').

Kate didn't even say it, during the interview. Oprah did. From Oprah's website:

When your daughter is missing, it's not only major questions that you
worry about, Kate says. "It's [little] things you worry about as well.
Is someone brushing her teeth? Is someone rubbing her tummy if she's
not feeling well? It's all those things you do as a mother," she says.

That was in response to Oprah saying something like "I read somewhere you worrying about the little things: I hope someone is keeping her warm, I hope someone is giving her a blanket when she is cold..." I don't even know if Oprah said "her blanket". I don't trust the transcript and I can't find the clip online.

But I agree Diane, it would be common to say "You hope someone gives her her blanket when she's cold."

It's also asinine to think Kate slipped up WITH OPRAH and said "Oh and Madeleine's blanket is missing and the abductor took it with him." Amaral is DESPERATE.

I remember something on Oprah but not exactly what was saying, and I just dont have time to watch it today, but I will try to do so over the weekend.

And glad we agree, that it is just common english language usage.

And yes, Amaral is DESPERATE.
