Disgraced Madeleine McCann detective must reveal how much money he made from book about bungled Maddie probe

20 Nov 2013 00:00

A judge ordered Goncalo Amaral to hand over receipts - Gerry and Kate McCann are suing him for £1million over his book The Truth of the Lie

Disgraced former detective Goncalo Amaral was yesterday ordered by a judge in Lisbon to reveal how much cash he made from a book about the bungled Madeleine McCann probe.

Amaral, 56, has 10 days to hand over receipts.

The book’s publishers and the producers of a TV documentary were also instructed to reveal how much they paid him in royalties.

Gerry and Kate, both 45, are suing him for £1million over his book The Truth of the Lie, in which he claimed they covered up their girl’s death in the Algarve in 2007.

He denies defamation.

eta: Glad to see the Mirror is giving him free publicity for his book, The Truth of the Lie.

Why?


Why has he got to do this, it's not about how much he made, is it.


Bloody cheek.


How about the mccanns handing over how much they made out off their dead child.


This got something to do with the fund?


No donations going in , is there .

What the hell difference does it make how much money he made? He did give a figure for the sale of the Books , but why did not the Judge tell Amaral earlier what information she would require.? Is she going to say to the McCanns at a later date, will you provide the figures showing how much income you received from the disappearance of Madeleine and how much was spent on engaging reputable Detectives.

I understood the charge was Amaral's book and video affected the search for Madeleine, not that he made a fortune from it.

This is possibly a request from the McCanns' legal team.

I wish I didn't think so weissnicht, but as you say, the Mccanns must be kept whiter than white and when it comes to political deals between countries then they are willing to sacrifice truth and honesty and are more than unscrupulous enough to throw innocent people to the wolves. I quite simply have no faith whatsoever in any justice system any more.

I agree.
As we recall, even on Day 1 of the trial, even before she entered the courthouse, Duarte was spouting off about Mr Amaral's money in the car park to anyone who would listen:

Isabel Duarte slanders Gonçalo Amaral Twitter

Ms Duarte made her comment to Sky News as she made her way into the Palace of Justice on the first day of the trial.

#madeleine McCann lawyer Isabel Duarte tells Sky News she believes ex-cop Goncalo Amaral is hiding the profits from his book.

I think it a logical request for a judge to make.

How many copies of this book were sold is very important.  Was it a billion copy blockbuster that reached millions of people worldwide, thus perhaps harming the search, or was it a book written and distributed in Portugese and then translated into other languages with small sales figures before being withdrawn because of the McCans legal action.

I don't think it's an indication of anything other than the judge wants all relevant information to hand when making a decision which to me seems fair.

As usual though its been spun with a negative slant towards Mr Amaral.



Edit

Since I wrote that, this tweet from uk justice forum

@Justice_forum: Day 9 of the #McCann vs Gonçalo Amaral libel trial in Lisbon sees McCann lawyer Isabel Duarte demanding proof of royalties paid to Amaral.

So it's them up to their old tricks most likely.

Isn't this Duarte's usual MO, her 'dodgy money' party trick, the stunt she pulls when all else is failing?

Remember a few years back when she put in a criminal complaint accusing Mr Amaral of fraudulently obtaining legal aid?
She didn't win that one either.

She's had this bee in her bonnet since Day 1 of the libel trial, as mentioned previously.
The trial has been going on for ages, but she only chooses to mention it in court now, after her sly remarks to hacks way back. Seems like she stuffed it at the bottom of her handbag in case it was needed later.
And now she fetches it out again ...

IMO it is an indication of just how badly things are going for her and the McCanns.

I DEMAND to know how much of the 'donation' (£38.73p) made to the Madeleine 'fund' raised by a group of handicapped kiddies, specifically given, after tremendous exertions, to be used, so they thought, for 'searching only' for Madeleine, ended up in their spokesman's pocket or paying mortgage repayments on the McCanns house or paid for GM to stay at 5* hotels in Lisbon!

When ID answers THAT then, and only then, will she have the moral authority to ask her questions.

This just shows what the McCanns are really interested in. They waited a year after Amaral's book was published before deciding that it was causing them distress and harming the search.
