The Shadows Over Madeleine’s Parents

What Kate McCann’s Secret Diary Does Not Tell



By Aníbal Malvar 24/10/2011 (06:00h)

Kate McCann has been in Madrid this week to present the book “Madeleine”, based upon her diaries and in which she exhaustively describes the police and personal efforts to recover her daughter. On 3rd May 2007, Maddie McCann aged four, disappeared whilst sleeping with her twin siblings in a chalet in Praia da Luz, in the Algarve. Since then, nothing has been heard about the girl.

The police had asked Kate McCann to try to reconstruct in detail and in writing all her activities, meetings, conversations, phone calls and visits, during the days previous to Madeleine’s disappearance. Including the tiniest or most trivial detail. They assured her that this memory exercise would help the investigators follow the leads that might have appeared to her as having gone unnoticed.
Kate McCann was used, since her teenage years, to take up her exercise book every day and write some impressions and details of her life.
In other words, she kept a diary.
However, this was not told to the Portuguese police.
She waited for the arrival of the British intelligence service to deliver this more intimate diary.
When the existence of this book came to light, the Portuguese police requested a copy from the British. It was denied.
A gesture that muddied even further the already tense relations between the Portuguese and British investigators who were collaborating in the search for the girl.
Gonçalo Amaral had spent six years heading the Portimão Criminal Investigation Department when he was put in charge of the investigation.
A few days before being taken off the case “due to political pressure” according to his own words, Amaral phoned me early in the morning in my Portimão hotel. It was the 12th September 2007 and until then, the Portuguese officer had avoided any contact with the press: “Justice is done in silence”, he quoted Saint José to kindly evade any requests for interviews. The meeting took place in a Brazilian owned cafeteria in Olhão. A dull and over lit place that would remain open until dawn.

Amaral, who had charged the McCanns five days previously, arrived late, unshaven, his suit wrinkled and with deep shadows under his eyes.
He said he had not slept for days.
His shabby appearance was one of the most recurrent arms used by the British press to discredit him.
In the UK defending the innocence of the McCann couple had become a question of patriotism, the tabloids had gone to the lengths of qualifying the Portuguese officer as a dipsomaniac, a bumpkin and even as suspected of being involved in a paedophile network.
They did not pay any attention to Amaral who continued to insist on the theory that Madeleine had suffered a domestic accident and that the parents had disposed of her body to avoid scandal: according to Amaral’s suspicions, the autopsy would have revealed that the McCanns had been sedating their hyperactive daughter and that they had exceeded the dosage.
Gerry McCann, a doctor by profession, was at the point of being named for an important position in the British health service when the girl disappeared. A well-connected man with influence at the highest levels.

Although the Portuguese police had not had access to Kate McCann’s diaries, Amaral knew of part of their content due to press leaks.
According to these leaks, Kate admitted in her writings that Maddie’s hyperactivity would on occasions, rile her.
In any case, Amaral also doubted the veracity of what Kate had written, suggesting that the version of the diary delivered to the British several weeks after the disappearance would have been later manipulated to hide evidence: “If you take this book and write now that it is the 12th September and your impressions..., is that a diary or fiction?”.

The line of investigation opened by Amaral and so dismissed by the British, is just a question of method: “Almost 90% of all missing children cases are the parents’ responsibility”, he says, referring to police statistics. But, in this case, there were more elements of suspicion.

Firstly, the McCanns did not call the police immediately after the disappearance.
They first organised, together with the friends they were dining with that night, search patrols around the resort.
When they finally called the Portuguese police, the McCann apartment had been infested by amateur investigators contaminating the scene of the events and making it difficult to obtain “clean” evidence. An unreasonable attitude from educated and affluent persons. Any parent having the financial resources the McCanns had would have immediately considered the possibility of a kidnapping with economic motives.

Furthermore, the media circus organised by the McCanns, implied to Amaral the immediate “condemning to death” of the girl in the case that this was an abduction by a paedophile network. The McCanns had clearly disregarded the recommendations for discretion made to them by the Portuguese police.

After having been removed from the case, a few days after our interview, Gonçalo Amaral requested early retirement and left behind 28 years of his profession in order to write the book “Maddie. The Truth of the Lie”.
In a few days more than 120.000 copies were sold. In the book, Amaral claims that Gerry McCann hid his daughter on the beach and, later, with the help of accomplices, froze her body and disposed of it. Traces of blood appeared in the apartment and car boot of the McCanns, but the police did not consider that there was conclusive proof to accuse the parents.
Before the book “Truth of the Lie” was printed, PJ inspector Paulo Pereira Cristóvao had already written “The Star of Madeleine”, a book in which he relates the investigation and maintains theories very similar to those defended by Amaral. This book also had successful sales.

Now Kate McCann has just presented her book “Madeleine” in Madrid with the aim of raising funds to continue searching for her daughter. Both the Portuguese and British police have abandoned the investigation.
The McCanns however, have insisted during these four years, contracting detectives who have followed false leads even to India and offering a two million pound reward to anyone who provides true information leading to Madeleine’s whereabouts.

Kate McCann’s book has also been distributed in the UK and Portugal. Although “Madeleine” is partly based on them, it does not include the diaries that were so zealously denied by the British police to Gonçalo Amaral, whom, no longer a member of the police, continues to request publicly the re-opening of the case whenever he has the opportunity.

I'm fed up with all this diary nonsense because Leveson will NEVER want to get to the bottom of it so it's a waste of time anyways, my thoughts....

There is more than one diary. Kate owuld NEVER write in the diary after Maddie went missing that her 'hyperactivty used to rile her' - we all know why.....

Auntie Phil says she told Kate to write a diary here it says the police did.....?

I'd like to see proof the PJ asked the British for this diary including the refusal.

Gerry was going to be named as someone important in the NHS.... well why wasn't he anyway? Isn't Kate always the one who's going through files? He could have still done that job.

Without having the diaries Amaral knew of their content due to 'press leaks' - sorry l am fully behind the PJ but l honestly didn't see the British police leaking anything, whatever was coming out was someone in Portugal - and no l'm not accusing Mr.Amaral, never would!! there were plenty involved who could get information out.

However, l do believe it was the British press PAYING for any info that could be got out.....

Now, forgive me if I'm wrong but, had this diary or transcripts of it been in the hands of the police then would this not have been classified as ' evidence ' and therefore the property of the police whilst the investigation was live.

If this is the case then would someone taking this evidence / property without their consent infact be stealing it and is it not the case that anyone involved in the handling of stolen property would be involved in a crime ?

I searched all night and through early morning trying to find out whether the Police had taken Kate's Diary from the Villa but couldn't find anything. I don't think it was leaked from the Police. I think it was probably someone else.

I am so confused. Are there THREE diaries then? 1. Kate's normal one, that she's kept since she was a child. 2. The diary the Portuguese police advised her to keep. 3. The diary that Aunty Phil advised her to keep? And if so, which diary contained the 'hyperactive' stuff? and which is the one that the NOTW got their hands on? and which is the one the British police refused to hand over?

http://www.mccannfiles.com/id166.html snipped from McCannfiles article entitled: Kate tried to hide twins' tantrums Correio da Manhã - Kate's notebooks – Sean and Amelie were only 18 months old - 31 July 2008 Thanks to 'astro' for translation



PJ went to London to fetch diary

Kate McCann's diary, which is considered to be fundamental by the investigators due to the fact that it reveals the profile of Madeleine's mother, led the Polícia Judiciária to England to try to apprehend it but it was never validated as evidence and the process ended up being archived.

The document, which started to be written by Kate upon advice from a psychiatrist after her daughter’s disappearance, was discovered by the police in the Ocean Club apartment, in the Algarve, and was initially photocopied and analysed. But it was only in April, during their last trip to England, that the Polícia Judiciária was granted permission to formally apprehend the original document, a fundamental diligence that had been requested in September so it could be valued as evidence.

But the judge that held the process decided to postpone the validation of the diary, which therefore could not be taken into account within the Polícia Judiciária’s investigation – and in the meantime, the Public Ministry ended up archiving the case.

The authorities believed that Kate's notes revealed her personality, and therefore were determinant for the investigation, but they ended up never being able to use them as evidence.

Initially, the police only appended the copies of the document to the process, and the original was not apprehended because it juridically fitted within the concept of private correspondence, which is subject to a stricter regime. Meanwhile, the McCanns returned to the United Kingdom, which forced the Polícia Judiciária to request the apprehension of the diary through rogatory letters, which took months to receive a reply.

If this supposed leaked Diary was leaked by a PJ (Portuguese Journalist) then someone ought to get in touch the the LI (not Leveson himself because he is biased - it was him that made the Sanderson chap(?) eventually say probably the Portuguese Police) and let them know they are conducting an Inquiry with false information!

ETA

Annabels thread here:
http://missingmadeleine.forumotion.net/t18264-ambiguous-or-equivocal-or-just-tongue-in-cheek-thepottingshedder

Go read the article on the link.

Ambiguous or Equivocal?... Or just tongue in cheek.
Taken from the statement of Daniel Sanderson who appeared at the Leveson Inquiry on 15th December 2011

snipped:

"I believe 18,000 Euros were paid to the Portuguese journalist (the P J). It was paid in two parts; 9,000 Euros up front and 9,000 Euros on publication. I can’t be certain of this figure, but it is certainly a fairly accurate estimate. I am aware of the approximate figure because that is the price that had been agreed with the PJ in my initial phone conversations with the PJ. The PJ set the price, which I had communicated to Mr Edmondson. Mr Edmondson then authorised both payments to the source. The PJ then contacted me after publication to organise the second payment, which was authorised by Mr Edmondson.



For the benefit of the Leveson Inquiry...
PJ = Portuguese Journalist


For the benefit of the rest of the astute world...
PJ = Policia Judiciara (Portuguese police)"

The diary had already been photocopied?

Tavares -During the house search at the McCann couple’s residence, a diary style manuscript was found, already photocopied, possibly authored by Kate McCann; admitting that it may contain information that may help to reach the material truth of facts, WE PROPOSE THAT:

I) the photocopies of said document are presented to the illustrious Judge for the purpose of its apprehension, if legal, its translation and eventual collection of information to be included in the process files, as necessary for the investigation.


Translation [from English original to Portuguese] the responsibility of the 'Area of Documentation and Translation' of the Policia Judiciária

The journalist who wrote the article that this thread is based on is Anibal Malvar. Joana Morais proved that he is either a liar or a very very bad researcher. The fact that she showed he had stolen a lot of one of his articles from a work of fiction suggests liar. He even had to apologise for other articles he has written about the McCann case.

http://joana-morais.blogspot.com/2008/04/el-mundo-article-lies-and-plagiarism.html

http://joana-morais.blogspot.com/2008/04/maddie-case-media-authophagia-reaches.html

Personally I don't think there is any doubt at all that the diary (the one that was quoted in the NOTW and the one that was used by Correia de Manha in Portugal was in the hands of the PJ.

This report sent by Tavares Almeida to the co-ordinator of the investigation (wasn't that Goncalo Amaral?) in September 2007 is clear that they had the diary in the last few paragraphs.

http://www.mccannpjfiles.co.uk/PJ/TAVARES_ALMEIDA.htm

There is also an invoice from the woman who translated it for the PJ for her 5 weeks work on it and a record of payment as well as other documents.

http://www.mccannpjfiles.co.uk/P17/17_VOLUME_XVIIa_Page_4493.jpg


We should all realise that relying on newspaper articles for information especially when the reporters involved have been shown to be liars is a bit silly when the PJ Files themselves show that the article is wrong and that in this case the Policia Judiciara definitely did have the diary from the McCanns.

Amaral, who had charged the McCanns five days previously, arrived late, unshaven, his suit wrinkled and with deep shadows under his eyes.
He said he had not slept for days.
His shabby appearance was one of the most recurrent arms used by the British press to discredit him.

First time I have ever seen this.
I thought they had never been charged.
If they were charged then released from arguido status then no wonder our tabloids say they were cleared

Well I think the reason you've not heard it is probably because its not true.
There is nothing in the PJ Files which suggests this at all.

Why people think that newspaper articles which are written by a person who Joana Morais proved was a liar have any truth in them is beyond me.
