English Book

lenquete-interditeThe French title of Gonçalo Amaral’s book, “A Verdade da Mentira,” is, “Maddie: L’Enquête Interdite,” The Forbidden Investigation.

This is the Foreword from the French version.

“Certainly, this book responds to the need I felt to defend myself, having been discredited by the institution for which I worked for more than twenty-six years, without being given any chance to explain myself, publicly or within the institution itself. I made the request several times, but it was never heard. I, therefore, scrupulously respected the rules of the police judiciaire and I refrained from making any comment. But this goes without saying: I experienced that silence to which I was constrained as an attack on my dignity. Later, I was removed from the investigation. It was then that I understood that it was time to speak. To do that, I requested early retirement in order to be able to express myself freely.

However, the purpose of this work is more important: to contribute to finding the truth so that justice can finally be done in the investigation known as the “Maddie case.” Truth and justice are two values strongly anchored within me, which reflect my profound beliefs: they always guided the work I did for the institution to which I am proud to have belonged. Even in retirement, they continue to inspire me and to be present in my life.

In no way does this text seek to challenge the work of my colleagues in the police judiciaire or to compromise the ongoing investigation. I am convinced that the disclosure of all the facts may, in the present case, result in harming the investigation. However, the reader will have access to unpublished information, to new interpretations of events – always with respect for the law – and, of course, to relevant enquiries.

The only objective of a criminal investigation is the search for truth. There is no place for the “politically correct.”

    What has happened to the Madeleine Foundation website?
    Surely McCann is not going to get away with supressing free speech along with his other crimes.
    If as it appears he is so fond of resorting to litigation, why doesn’t he sue the Doctors Gaspar for their statement made to Leicestershire Police alleging paedophile activity by him and his accomplice Payne.
    Could it be for the same reason that he has so far avoided meeting Inspector Amaral in a Portuguese Court.
    Awash with money from his claims he must think he is on a roll. Goebels has nothing on this man, he must be brought to book.

    Stevo Says: Carter Ruck have filed a bogus copyright claim on 3 images used in the site. The claim is bogus because the McCanns are giving those images of Madeleine out as free downloads on their own website. I should get it sorted later today and back online. The copyright claims dept. are not the most efficient dept. at the hosting company.

    Just finished reading the original version ( I am Portuguese) and I can tell you that though I didn’t had any doubts that the McCanns were guilty, I was surprised by Gonçalo Amaral many hints of friends in high places being responsible for helping that horrible couple. But why ? I can’t find a good enough reason, after all Portugal is a member of the EEC, if it was an accidental death, they would get preferential treatment and all, precisely for being English.
    Can anyone explain that ? Why would powerful people like some high ranking politicians get involved in such a mess, taking the risk of all blowing up in their faces, in case the truth comes out?

    Reply: The McCanns have got dirt on certain high-ranking Freemasons. This is why they are being protected.

    The jaz group that played jaz in the old fort, praia da luz are linked to Robert Murats uncle Ralph Eveliegh and his B&B villa, they are pictured there having a drink with a blond female singer in Salsalito advertisment Spring 2007.
    Amarals book states an Irish family named Smith saw a man carrying a small chld down towards the beach who had a good likeness to G M.
    The route this man possibly took with a small child was towards the beach, past the church onwards to the fort and the private beach, in a small inlet, maybe the perfect place to hide a body or to hand over a child to a waiting team of conspiritors.

    Gerard Says:

    I would love to know the real truth about this affair. If as is implied that the McCanns killed Maddie, I am sure they could easily have found one of the many deep wells that abound in that part of the Algarve down which to throw in the corpse.. Poor little thing would be lost without trace and they would never be found guilty or not. So they could lie forever knowing full well that the little girl’s remains would never ever be found. May she rest in peace.

    Michael Says:

    Dear Mr. Amaral,
    for years I’m thinking about the disappearance of Madeleine McCann. I would like to know the solution of this case.
    When I read your book, I wondered about some details.
    In chapter 7 you describe how you got rid of your Shitzu dog. You place it in a plastic bag and drop his remains in a bin.

    In chapter 16 you write that neighbours of the McCanns said, that the McCanns transported their bins in the car boot. Where did they bring the bins? Why did they bring their bins somewhere with the car?

    Did the police look for a body on the ground where the bins of Vila da Luz were emptied in May 2007?
    When were the bins of Vila da Luz the next time emptied after the 3rd May 2007? Where was the content of the bins brought to? Did the police look there for a body?
    Why didn’t you write nothing about it?

    I wish you good luck and all the best.
    Yours sincerly

    Celia Says:

    Hello Mr. Amaral,

    I would love to get my hands on a copy of your book but I would need it in English. Never once have I doubted the McCann’s are guilty. I have no time for them. That poor little girl and her siblings. How on earth could anyone leave three babies on their own in a foreign country. They of all people, professionals in their working life, no
    you just do not do that. Amongst everything. I just cannot understand why Gerry McCann had to leave Portugal to come back home supposedly for photographs. No, it just does not fit. None of it does.
    Is there any way your book could be put on line and translated? I must have an English copy somehow.

    Thank you for writing it. There must be something to hide when the McCanns will not let it be published here. They are dreadful people as far as I am concerned who have made money out of people by playing on their feelings.

    Wishing you all the best and God bless. We love Portugal. Celia

    kayla Says:

    ok well im pretty confused about this story right here, everyone is accusing their own parents of her disappearnce?? they left the door unlocked which was pretty stupid and does lead to some kind of guilt towards their part, but u guys are accusing them when we have no idea what rly happened do that poor girl. Maybe they did plan it all maybe they didnt and hopefully one day the truth with come out but to u mr.amaral u should of never published ur book because in the end what if ur wrong..?

    Site Admin: Snr Amaral’s book tells the truth about his time in charge of the investigation in 2007. How can it be “wrong”? The case was shelved as a homicide NOT a case of abduction. That is all indisputable fact.

    Colin Brittain Says:

    I found the whole debate about this quite distasteful indeed. I fail to see why Gonçalo Amaral should profit from claims in a self written book, he clearly has no morality profiting from such a dreadful saga.
    He has allegedly made many spurious claims in his book, and lets be very clear about this. Gonçalo Amaral was not present at whatever took place and his statements are therefore little more than assumptions at best. Gonçalo Amaral stands apart from the police force and one must consider why, would an innocent detective leave voluntarily, I doubt it.
    As for the chosen title of his book “The Truth of the Lie” who is to say what the truth is! I have no intention of buying this appalling mans book. Why do people believe that lining this mans pockets will have any impact on this sad time. Gonçalo Amaral is most definitely the prophet he seems to think he is……

    The parents did make such a dreadful action in doing what they claim to have, but unless anyone has irrefutable proof they cannot be proved to have killed the poor child!

    Madeleine is missing for sure, dead or alive it is a travesty that the Police in Portugal operates in such a closed way. Had they reacted much sooner and openly perhaps we might have had closure.

    The McCanns have defended themselves to the hilt, but let’s not loose sight of the real victim here, Madeleine!!

    Site Admin: You ask “why would an innocent detective leave voluntarily?” Well, he didn’t! He was sacked. Get up to speed on the story before you go making wild accusations and spread erroneous assumptions out there. What has money got to do with the book? Are you suggesting that anyone who wants to write a book about their first-hand knowledge of a situation has to do it for free? It’s ok for the McCanns to make hundreds of thousands of pounds from their dead daughter but it’s not ok for the chief investigator to document his side of the story?

    You sir are completely bonkers!

    Hello Mr Goncalo Amarel, I just want you to know that people haven’t forgot what those terrible parents have done, so many know you are telling the truth, and you were not allowed to finish what you knew about them and you have had such a hard time, I know God will look after you, you have done all you could under those difficult circumstances, how those pair can live with themselves I truly do not know ? May God Bless you and keep you and your loved ones safe !

    Amanda Jayne ‘Hart’ talks rubbish. She abandoned her daughter, drove her hundreds of miles to her ex husband’s house, dropped her off and never returned.
    Years later, she abandoned husband no.2, leaving him with her other two children while she disappeared to Australia for a new life, whilst attempting to defraud him and her own mother out of well over £10,000. She returned from Australia 6 days later as the fraud was found and stopped; she returned because she had no money.
    Much more on UK Skeptics website ‘Here come the psychic predators’ thread and the ‘Maddie Blogs’, written by Amanda and published online by her PR agent, Kizzi Ngwotcha. Ngwotcha removed the blogs after however long but they were copied onto UK Skeptics website.

    I have questioned the amount of money the MPS are spending on this case to my local MP and now had a reply from the Minister of State.

    He states to my question that the McCanns have to be the prime suspects that they were exonerated by the Portuguse authorities.

    I have not heard that before so would appreciate your comments.

    The amount of public money spent so far by the MPS is currently in excess of £4m.

    They have identified around 195 leads.

    Woburn_Exile Says:

    Madeleine was most probably being sexually abused by Gerry and co. See The Gasper statements to confirm.
    Madeleine McCann was being sedated by her parents.
    Madeleine McCann is no longer alive, she was not abducted as described by the media there is no hope in finding her.
    Kate McCann will be dead inside the next 5 years due to “suicide” citing pressure from internet trolls.
    Gerry McCann will get off scot free, his twins will never challenge his version of events.
    Vile disgusting lying people, I hope they and their ilk are not genetically linked.

    They are worse than scum, at least the moors murderers told their story and families had some sort of closure but these people want it to continue as long as they can they get free airtime and cash from everywhere, lets hope their other kids find out the truth about the scum they call mum and dad…………………..

    Claire Says:

    Dear Mr Goncaro Amarel,

    I, like many other English people, would like to read your book, and hear your story, which without even reading it, I believe to be true. Unfortunately Mr Amarel, the McCann’s have orchestrated and manipulated the English media and politicians, which sadly is not a difficult task, to promote their innocence and accuse others of their daughter’s ‘disappearance’. In addition, retail outlets are only selling books telling the McCann’s story; reviews of these books speak for themselves ie. “poorly written, thrown together quickly, why did Kate McCann refuse to answer 48 questions by the Portuguese police, if Portugal was such a dark place the tourist industry would have collapsed long ago, a biased and xenophobic book, etc’. I live in a supposedly democratic country – England, with free speech, but this is not the case. Increasingly, we are being controlled and influenced by the media and people with ‘connections’. Some quality and unbiased journalism still prevails ie. The Guardian, Independent, Observer. Mr Amarel I feel confident the decision will go in your favour; continue to be brave and honest, stand firm and I believe those that have to make the decision will see the truth. I anticipate reading your book – one day. Many best wishes, Claire

    Pepper Says:

    I read this book when it first became available as a free eBook download and it seemed to me that Mr. Amaral’s conclusions about Kate and Gerry McCann were perfectly reasonable. He had the right to publish his findings and he should not be subjected to a lawsuit simply because most of the British public happens to agree with him and the McCanns don’t like it.

    Georgie Says:

    Why, when being questioned by Portugese police, did she refuse to answer all but one question?

    These are the questions:
    1. On May 3 2007, around 22:00, when you entered the apartment, what did you see? What did you do? Where did you look? What did you touch?
    2. Did you search inside the bedroom wardrobe? (she replied that she wouldn’t answer)
    3. (shown 2 photographs of her bedroom wardrobe) Can you describe its contents?
    4. Why had the curtain behind the sofa in front of the side window (whose photo was shown to her) been tampered with? Did somebody go behind that sofa?
    5. How long did your search of the apartment take after you detected your daughter Madeleine’s disappearance?
    6. Why did you say from the start that Madeleine had been abducted?
    7. Assuming Madeleine had been abducted, why did you leave the twins home alone to go to the ‘Tapas’ and raise the alarm? Because the supposed abductor could still be in the apartment.
    8. Why didn’t you ask the twins, at that moment, what had happened to their sister or why didn’t you ask them later on?
    9. When you raised the alarm at the ‘Tapas’ what exactly did you say and what were your exact words?
    10. What happened after you raised the alarm in the ‘Tapas’?
    11. Why did you go and warn your friends instead of shouting from the verandah?
    12. Who contacted the authorities?
    13. Who took place in the searches?
    14. Did anyone outside of the group learn of Madeleine’s disappearance in those following minutes?
    15. Did any neighbour offer you help after the disappearance?
    16. What does ‘we let her down’ mean?
    17. Did Jane tell you that night that she’d seen a man with a child?
    18. How were the authorities contacted and which police force was alerted?
    19. During the searches, with the police already there, where did you search for Maddie, how and in what way?
    20. Why did the twins not wake up during that search or when they were taken upstairs?
    21. Who did you phone after the occurrence?
    22. Did you call Sky News?
    23. Did you know the danger of calling the media, because it could influence the abductor?
    24. Did you ask for a priest?
    25. By what means did you divulge Madeleine’s features, by photographs or by any other means?
    26. Is it true that during the searches you remained seated on Maddie’s bed without moving?
    27. What was your behaviour that night?
    28. Did you manage to sleep?
    29. Before travelling to Portugal did you make any comment about a foreboding or a bad feeling?
    30. What was Madeleine’s behaviour like?
    31. Did Maddie suffer from any illness or take any medication?
    32. What was Madeleine’s relationship like with her brother and sister?
    33. What was Madeleine’s relationship like with her brother and sister, friends and school mates?
    34. As for your professional life, in how many and which hospitals have you worked?
    35. What is your medical specialty?
    36. Have you ever done shift work in any emergency services or other services?
    37. Did you work every day?
    38. At a certain point you stopped working, why?
    39. Are the twins difficult to get to sleep? Are they restless and does that cause you uneasiness?
    40. Is it true that sometimes you despaired with your children’s behaviour and that left you feeling very uneasy?
    41. Is it true that in England you even considered handing over Madeleine’s custody to a relative?
    42. In England, did you medicate your children? What type of medication?
    43. In the case files you were SHOWN CANINE forensic testing films, where you can see them marking due to detection of the scent of human corpse and blood traces, also human, and only human, as well as all the comments of the technician in charge of them. After watching and after the marking of the scent of corpse in your bedroom beside the wardrobe and behind the sofa, pushed up against the sofa wall, did you say you couldn’t explain any more than you already had?
    44. When the sniffer dog also marked human blood behind the sofa, did you say you couldn’t explain any more than you already had?
    45. When the sniffer dog marked the scent of corpse coming from the vehicle you hired a month after the disappearance, did you say you couldn’t explain any more than you already had?
    46. When human blood was marked in the boot of the vehicle, did you say you couldn’t explain any more than you already had?
    47. When confronted with the results of Maddie’s DNA, whose analysis was carried out in a British laboratory, collected from behind the sofa and the boot of the vehicle, did you say you couldn’t explain any more than you already had?
    48. Did you have any responsibility or intervention in your daughter’s disappearance?

    Q. Are you aware that in not answering the questions you are jeopardising the investigation, which seeks to discover what happened to your daughter?
    A. ‘Yes, if that’s what the investigation thinks.’

    Wow, just wow.
    Some one mentioned to me that the McCann’s were behind the disappearance of Maddie..I said what a load of rubbish, but was told to search online.
    I have been searching and reading articles for two days and my opinion has TOTALLY changed.
    All I can say is, how on earth has this been kept quiet?
    This has to be one of the biggest cover-ups in British history.
    I’ve watched videos on YouTube and read article after article and it is as clear as day there was no abduction.
    There is evidence after evidence as to why she wasn’t abducted but no evidence that she was.
    The McCann’s are behind this and the truth MUST come out.

    Tara Says:

    Dear Mr Amaral, thank you for the book. I just want to clarify something, please: Gerry was “conducting his own experiments” closing and opening the window (is this true?), so if yes, why didn’t his fingerprints appear alongside Kate’s on that window frame? thank you.

  37. 37
    Tara Says:

    Also, could you please tell me your view on this scenario – it concerns “dealing with the body” after whatever happened in the apartment. Realistically, it needs to be 30 min or so to deal with it – go to the beach or wherever, clean up, etc. Who had these 30 min available during the evening? My answer is the dad of little Ivy, who said that he has to stay with her (after their turn of the checks) because she is awake and was sick. Very well. But is there any actual proof that she was sick? that he stayed with her for the whole time and was only replaced by his wife after she ate her dinner and after that he returned to the table to eat his? This scenario obviously involves Mccanns friends, but why not? it also may mean that something happened to Maddy just after Kate took her back in the afternoon while Gerry was on tennis court and this is why she wanted him to come back. Instead his friend went, and this is possibly the time when the plan was being thought of of how to deal with the body. Thank you.

Email can be send to the enclose email addr.

    rich Says:

    At the time my instinct was that they had sold the little girl. Over the years the feeling has not changed. Oddly, in every list of possible outcomes, no-one ever states this, its always a choice between: she was abducted (the least likely outcome but the most often spouted.where did this idea come from? the mccanns. They are the only ones saying this)or they murdered her, accidently or otherwise. It doesn’t take a genius to work out there may be over a hundred different possible outcomes and that the whole process is contrived. I believe the buyer was someone high profile, possibly a Royal. Clearly there is a link to Mr Brown’s brother but I only found that out today reading this blog. I still think it is someone more important – which would explain the strange/unnacceptable way the whole affair has been treated by the english press, police and government. The whole country hates this couple, mostly because they defend themselves for leaving their children alone in unlocked apartments abroad while they party, but also because we watch all the interviews and it’s all so obviously contrived. We all see through it, everyone except the police, the mccanns and the government. It’s a small island, I hope I never meet either of these people in real life and let’s be honest, we’ve seen their miserable faces enough to recognise them for life.

    The twins should have been taken off for neglect yet again social work fail because the parents work and have high profile jobs, they automatically assume they are good parents. Bull let’s face facts in this day a child is not safe in a back garden never mind a room a distance away with open doors and a strange country and if there was a fire all would be dead. These children are not safe and wether it was a accident or deliberate death it was because the mccanns failed there children, certainly wouldn’t trust them with kids or as doctors, and as for the British government a cult off corruption that’s what they are

    Wow!. I don’t live in the Uk and read your book.GUILTY. Why is the Govt covering up for them there must be something else going on with the father. I wish you well and hope you keep going to uncover the truth. Everyone deserves the truth and this couple have made too much money out of this foxing too many people. No one has addressed the fact that if nothing happened would these untrustworthy,selfish, narcissistic parents have continued to drug their children so they could go out having their fun? It wasn’t going to last forever. They should be had up by the child protection agencies as least.

    Mrs Joyce Barbakis Says:

    I totally agree with everything you have written. I remember reading in one of the Sunday newspapers that Jerry McCann actually checked on the children and Maddie wasn’t in her own bed so he assumed that she must have been in her parents bed. What kind of father does that? The truth will eventually come out.
    God Bless

    If they had given her a sleeping draft, and she had fallen off the back of the sofa banged her head, could account for the blood and cadaver odour. They would have been a major scandal, Doctors SEDATE CHILDREN, AND GO OUT FOR A MEAL WITH FRIENDS, LEAVING THEIR 3 YOUNG CHILDREN ALONE IN AN UNLOCKED PROPERTY IN PORTUGAL.As for Doctor Paynes version of his visit, it’s a work of fiction, and they have the bloo–y nerve, to lie to the Police, change their statements many times, ridicule these Police refuse to answer questions, refuse to return to Portugal in an attempt to find their daughter, who by now if she is still alive, will keep clear of her neglectful parents, and go on to have a happy life. Heartbreaking, and I never met this little girl.

    I am gobsmacked and furious that what I am finding online over and over again gives important details conveniently left out by the mainstream toilet rags of record.

    I also know not to look up wikipedia again, nothing but lies and propaganda.

    Good on Mr Amaral. In the end, the truth always comes out.

    Let’s see for how much longer these inadequate parents get away with causing the death of that child (gleaned from many sources but not this book which I have not yet had the opportunity to read).

    Jay Says:

    This book has to be released in English, some printer must be willing even if it has to be ordered online and sent by mail, possibly from outside the UK.

    I know it is available online but I would never read a full book on the internet, and I am sure there are many others the same.

    Will this book be published in English? I have just come across The Telegraph online publishing incorrectly the following:
    ’28 April 2015 – McCanns win libel case
    Former investigator Gonçalo Amaral is ordered to pay €500,000 to the McCanns for alleging in his book that they faked their daughter’s abduction.’ They should rectify this!

    Thanks for making this known.
    I have always been concerned by the (group of) families’ thought process at leaving such small children like this, especially as the McCanns stated that Maddie had asked them why, when they (the children) had been crying the previous night, no-one came.
    I am a Brit and am shocked at what I have read so far in this book and seen from the evidence in it, none of which has been reported by the UK press to my knowledge even though I believe the police report is available in full.

    Daniel lane Says:

    Wow I cannot believe the parents have got away with this for this long. If this was any other parent they would have been arrested. Just shows how corrupt MPs are for covering up such a thing. All it took was being rich and friends with Gordon Brown to get away with it. The parents have made a lot of money off killing their daughter and covering it up, even paid off their mortgage. The truth will come out one day… How can you dismiss the facts from the sniffer dogs. Who the hell carries the bin out in their car on holiday? And why did the parents buy a new fridge for the apartment? They prob used the fridge to transport her out the apartment.

    Recentemente entrei em contato com a Amazon para saber quando a versão em inglês do livro de Snr Amaral, ‘The Truth of the Lie’, ficaria disponível à luz da decisão do Supremo Tribunal de Justiça de anular a proibição.
    Eles me asseguraram que entrarão em contato com o editor para solicitar estoques do livro e esperam que ele esteja à venda em breve.

    Eu entendo que o livro está disponível on-line, mas dado o interesse público e apoio para Snr Amaral, acredito que muitas, muitas pessoas gostariam da oportunidade de comprar hte livro real.

    Você pode me atualizar?

    English Version of above message, for info –


    I recently contacted Amazon to find out when the English version of Snr Amaral’s book, ‘The Truth of the Lie’, would be available in light of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the ban.
    They have assured me that they will contact the publisher to request stockpiles of the book and hope that it will be on sale soon.

    I understand that the book is available online, but given the public interest and support for Snr Amaral, I believe many, many people would like the opportunity to buy hte real book.

    Can you update me?

    thank you

    Best regards

    The book can’t be published here because Gerry McCann doesn’t wish it, and we all have to bend before the great Gerrys demands. However, they have just lost a libel case in Portugal, and that clears the way for this book to be published here. Have a look online, there are English excerpts around, and it makes the McCanns look pretty shady – especially the 39 questions Kate refused to answer. Have a hunt online.

    Tanya Says:

    If you look or think back to the interview the morning after she went missing, the Mccanns were not upset at all, sorry but if a mother had her little girl taken she would be inconsolably upset. Kate did not cry or looked very upset at all. Plus dont forget the day after Maddie went missing the Mccans went for a drive and went shopping, why would you that when you child is Missing!!!!

    I think they disposed of her that afternoon and used the evening meal with friends as a complete cover up, or where they in on it as that makes you think doesnt. Kate diary says (so I was told) “I wish Maddie would disappear).
