“Many people linked to the Maddie case and the investigation made in Portugal, were or are still the target of tapping and surveillance,” said a source of the Home Office to 24Horas in answer to the affirmations made by the ex-coordinator of the Department of Criminal Investigation (DIC) of the Judicial Police (PJ) of Portimão.
Gonçalo Amaral said that he was “under surveillance” and he knows that his “phone is being tapped.” The former head of the investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann “does not know who is watching him”, but he affirms that his email has been the target of a constant curiosity and that part of this information has been transmitted to the McCanns.
“At the moment, there is information which has to be developed regarding the localisation and what might have happened to the body of the young girl,” said Amaral, accusing the Public Prosecutor (PGR) and the management of the PJ of making a taboo of the Maddie case, where “nobody does anything” allowing “that people external to the Portuguese justice and police force investigate crimes under the PJ’s responsibility”.
Gonçalo Amaral, who, until now, has not received any notification regarding the complaint for defamation announced by the McCanns, confirms that he will sue Kate and Gerry McCann and will prove that an “agreement existed” between the couple and the British police during the investigation, which supposedly influenced the end result of the investigation.
Maddie’s parents want to prevent the publication in English of the book “Maddie: The truth of the lie”, in which the ex-coordinator of the PJ reveals many details of the investigation he was leading in Praia da Luz and where he sustains the theory of Madeleine’s death. The decision of the couple was supposedly taken as a consequence of the disclosure of the documentary based on this book that TVI (Portuguese TV channel) broadcasted and is available on internet with English subtitles.

Amaral accuses the Public Prosecutor to have “trapped” him in the Leonor Cipriano case.

“I haven’t got any doubt that there was a trap from the Public Prosecutor which then led him to say during the judgement that I made a false testimony, because I should have been made arguido the first day, at the first hour, like my colleagues,” said Gonçalo Amaral on TVI (see video) on the fact of having been condemned in the lawsuit of Leonor Cipriano, confirming that he is going to appeal against the sentence.
The ex-coordinator, talking about his most recent experience made with law in Portugal, gave the example of two complaints presented around the same report worked out by an association in the Joanna Cipriano case: the complaint presented by Amaral over a year ago is on standby, whereas the second, presented by the opposing party, already has some arguidos.
