Great. I've tweeted it and apparently the book is available in bookshops but not on Amazon, surprise, surprise....so Lilemor1 says.

Looking forward to an English version.

We best as Isabel Duarte and the McCanns they have around 1500 English copies they could sell to us (they won't give them to Amaral apparently)

How do you know they are in English? I didn"t think the English version had been translated yet. Why wouldn"t the Publisher take out a court order for their return as soon as the injunction was lifted if this was the case.

Neither am I fred, although I really don"t understand why, it has been translated into many languages and since the injunction was overturned
what is to stop him publishing in English. ?

Sorry I could be wrong.

I am sure I have seen that the McCanns stopped Amaral selling them right on the eve of them being sold in UK (so there would be some printed?). They are or were holding on to 1500 copies.

I am just going out but I will have another look later.

Thats what I don't understand either Panda. I thought he was free to publish his book anywhere and in any language.

Yes Autumn, it is strange. He also wrote "The English Gag "is about U.K. Government Interference which for me would have been an
obvious choice to be published in English. Maybe, he is finding it hard to get an English Publisher because no one will have a word said against
the McCanns, unless of course they lose their Libel suit.

I have found the article regarding the books and it says "On the eve of seeing the book translated into English" so probably no actual English books.

Panda is there an English translation of the "English Gag"? I'd love to read that.

Morning gillyspot, no , we would know if it was. Apparently it was launched in a prestigious Bookshop while the injunction Trial was in progress.

It is published in Portugese but I don"t know of any translations and I doubt because of the British Goverment involvement that any U.K.
publisher would take it on. I doubt it will be 384 pages long so maybe it will get translated and published by an American Company, sold on
Amazon like Stevo did with his book "The Faked Abduction".

Hi Panda, imo the libel case for the McCanns is a far more important to them then Mr Amaral, the McCanns if they lose(which imo they will) will course the flood gates to burst open on these two child neglectors and boy it will imo, were as Mr Amaral only loses money/livelyhood (which is bad enough I know) but will just fight on if this libel case goes against him, atleast he will not have the world on his shoulders (because if the McCanns ever take a public noise dive, my god it will be spectacular) if he loses, his is monetry, the McCanns well theirs is about freedom or a life in prison imo.

Does anyone have a link to the "Goncalo libel fund" Ive seen one somewere but can't remember,,,each month Ive decided to put a small amount out of my wages into the fund until Feb 2012, 4 donations out of my wages ins't much but all small amounts adds up.

Morning Lilyofthevalley,

Yes, I"m quietly confident that the McCanns have gone one lawsuit too far, I just hope we have a translator in the Court like they did the last time at the injunction hearing, maybe twitter or Facebook will surprise this time. I donated when there was an appeal to help with the Legal
Costs, but now the injunction has been lifted the book can be sold again so I would think Amaral can manage now. However, Cllaudia knows
Amaral so you could PM her to find out.

It's the cover off the book that worries me.



It is the same cover as Kate mccanns book.


His original cover had a brown cover with the pic off Madeleine in the spotty top


Are we sure someone hasn't changed the cover for a reason?

HI kitti. hope you are better and good to see you posting again. Gerry said ages ago that he holds the copyright and if it is the same cover
as Kate"s book I would be surprised if Amaral altered it. Where did you see this was it on Amazon ? Can you find the link, isn"t the original
cover for "The Truth of the Lie" used as Claudia"s avatar?

The cover off his book is claudias avatar.

The book on eBay has the same cover as Kate mccanns book.


Why would mr amaral CHANGE from the original cover to the same as Kate mccanns cover .


It feels very fishy to me .....the truth off the lie IS on sale on amazon but NOT in English.

The original OP listing from EBay shows the publication date as 2009 so the pic as the front page was used before the McCanns book

If you look again, it says "this is a private listing", the writing is in German isn"t it, not Portugese and "Maddie" would never have been used by
Amaral.. The very fact it is on e-bay is suspicious. The Seller is roxy media .I presume Amaral"s book was published in Portugese first . This
Book was last updated on 22nd October 2011 so I am just wondering if it is part of an original printing which was subsequently abandoned
because of the injunction and this guy has bought a job lot , maybe changed the cover himself.

The brother of Goncalo Amaral, the former police chief coordinator dismissed in the Madeleine McCann investigation has sued him because of bad debts. Apart from that, Amaral has 1/3 of his salary monthly confiscated by the tax office, because of debts to the tax office. Also, his house of Olhaois has been confiscated by a Portuguese bank (BIC) because of debts of around 500 000 euros.

All this yet Goncalo Amaral and his wife Sofia of Portimao continue to "live like lords", apparently they manage to live without even paying a single cent of their own pockets! There are rumours rife that all his money is in some sort of offshore account or in another person's name.

Amaral also continues to drive around in a luxury Jaguar motor car after having all their assets connected to earnings from his book, TV & radio interviews, newspaper and magazine interviews and documentaries, frozen by the court. His book is still banned from sale and Amaral is due to face a libel trial soon brought by Kate and Gerry McCann, who are suing him for £1 million for defamation and libel. The ban placed on his book has now been upheld by the court of appeal three times.

Amaral also benefits from charity money collected for him which is intended for his defence trial and has been set up in a bank account under the name of Paulo Sargento.
Pensioners have been asked to donate their pensions and savings into the fund to pay to Amaral by Joana Morais a close "friend".




This is what rabid pops said about mr amaral and his fighting fund.
