Sorry but what is it with this man and those books? What can’t he understand? It is simple the books belong to Guerra e Paz and NOT him.
He gets paid a royalty for every book that sells and he doesn’t even own the copyright according to one Portuguese Poster (screenshot).
So why is he now on about those books to O Crime
Why weren’t they returned yet?
I doubt the books still exist. In fact, it should be recalled the McCanns’ lawyer has always affirmed that those books would never be put on sales again. Exactly from where does that sureness come… I have no idea. I only know that lawyer and her clients do not abide by the decisions of the Portuguese courts, which can be a clear indication of their character, or, at least, of their behaviour within the Portuguese legal system. Allow me to remind you that, due to my suspicions that those books were destroyed, I have denounced the situation to the Public Ministry [Attorney General’s Office]; currently taking place at the DIAP [Department of Investigation and Penal Action] of Lisbon is a criminal process for improper clearance or destruction of objects placed under the public domain (Article 3551 of the Penal Code), abstractly punishable by at least a sentence of up to five years in prison, where the suspects are the McCann couple and their illustrious lawyer.
Of how many copies are we talking about?
In question, approximately 7 500 book copies.
When they are returned, will you re-market them again?
Those books or a new re-print should be already on sale. The book publishers “Guerra e Paz” will know more about that issue.
Now Mr Amaral, I will say it slowly and loudly:
THE BOOKS BELONG TO GUERRA E PAZ AND NOT YOU. IT IS DOWN TO THEM IF THEY DECIDE TO PUT THEM BACK ON THE SHELF OR NOT. IF GUERRA E PAZ DOES NOT ASK FOR THEIR BOOKS BACK FROM ISABEL DUARTE THEN THAT MUST TELL YOU SOMETHING, DOESN’T IT?
Is this man stupid or what? More can be read about the books here:
He is beginning to remind me of a spoilt child over these books. One who has been naughty and mummy has taken his favourite toy away, so he will lay on the floor kicking and screaming and having one almighty tantrum.
As for the rest of his interviews and comments lately, well they reek of desperation to me. It reminds me of someone knowing they are losing and are not going down without a fight and will cause as much hurt and mayhem as possible to the opposing side.
In fact the whole anti stance lately reminds me of that… perhaps they have heard of something that is not going to be liked in their quarters.. something along the lines that Goncalo Amaral and his thesis is totally wrong.
Because they are beginning to remind me of a group of people out on a full blown attack to try and wear down the supporters of the McCann family and Madeleine’s right to life, because they know that they will never be able to defend what emerges in the future.As they say you can’t defend the indefensible.
