I know there is a lot of tweets from people going on about what happened pre-arguido days and it seems that they are living back in 2007 before the Attorney General said the McCanns along with Robert Murat did NOT commit any crimes and they were released from their arguido days. I have just had one those time-warp moments myself and ended back in 2009.
There I was searching for something totally different when I found a translation of a 24horas news article about Goncalo Amaral’s so-called debts.
The translation was provided by Pedro Silva back on Justice for the McCann Family Forum.
I couldn’t believe what I was reading, so I checked out if this could be true.
Well Joana Morais on her blog post called Portuguese Press Coverage of “Citizens support Gonçalo Amaral”, in the comments I found the paper editions that were uploaded to scribd. One for the 24horas and one from the Expresso. Joana states that the 24horas article is just a rehash of the Expresso article printed earlier.
Joana even posts up a translation and states clearly it is not her translation but she does not dispute the translation or the contents:
Blinkered, I must have been blindfolded, my god there is this man in all this debt, being sued left right and centre, along with being an made an arguido in a torture case. Surely his mind could not have been properly on the case of finding missing Madeleine McCann? Why was he ever put in charge?
And there was I being the bigger fool by dismissing everything that Rosiepops posted and thinking that the translations could have been manipulated to suit the McCanns agenda. The McCanns didn’t have to instruct anyone to alter anything to prove things. Seems simple investigative journalism from Portugal’s own media, showed exactly what a mess Goncalo Amaral was in.
