'HE WANTS TO SQUEEZE EVERY PENNY' Cop who led initial hunt for Madeleine McCann shamelessly vows to ‘clean out’ her parents by suing them for damaging his reputation
The McCanns won a libel case against Goncalo Amaral in 2015 after he claimed they covered up Maddie's death, but the decision was later overturned
EXCLUSIVE

THE detective who led the initial hunt for Madeleine McCann has shamelessly vowed to “clean out” her parents by suing them for damaging his reputation.

Goncalo Amaral, 57, wrote a book claiming Maddie died at the McCanns’ holiday home in Praia da Luz and Kate and Gerry covered it up.

The grief-stricken parents won a libel case against the now-retired cop over his allegations in 2015 — but the decision was overturned on appeal and later upheld by another Portuguese court.

It means the McCanns are now unable to take the case any further and Amaral is able to counter-sue the couple for damages.

The dad of three has already put in a claim for 10,000 euros , around £8,500, to cover legal costs.

Detectives hunting Madeleine McCann says cops will only look at 'meaningful lines of enquiry'
His publisher and a firm behind a DVD on the case also want 5,000 euros each.

But the ex-cop, who was out enjoying a beer in the sun on Friday, could claim tens of thousands more.

A source said: “Amaral holds the key to making life financially very tough for the McCanns.

“He has told friends he intends to do just that. He wants to squeeze every penny he possibly can out of them, clean them out. He has no shame at all.

“He doesn’t believe they need the money to fund the search for Maddie as he is certain they know what happened to her.

“He is looking to deplete the Maddie fund at a time when they need all the money they can get.

“On top of all that, Kate and Gerry will be asked to pay a large legal costs bill for their case that ended in defeat for them.”

He is also still working on his second book on the case despite claims to the contrary

Amaral may do interviews on May 3, the anniversary of Maddie’s disappearance

Matthew Wright claims parents of missing children have been 'short changed' compared to Madeleine McCanns
The financial blow for Kate and Gerry comes as they approach the tenth anniversary of Maddie’s disappearance next month.

And in a further twist, The Sun on Sunday can reveal Amaral is still working on his second book on the case despite claims to the contrary.

The source said: “Amaral says the second book will be even more explosive.

“Since writing the first his mind has been working overtime coming up with all sorts of wild theories.”

Approached in Lisbon, Amaral said: “I don’t have to explain anything to anyone.”

But he added that he may do interviews on May 3, the anniversary of Maddie’s disappearance.

So he's made a claim for 10 k to cover his costs. Hardly squeezing every last penny.

Remember most of his costs were covered by donations from well-wishers, so I think his claim is reasonable. Giving interviews on 3rd May doesn't indicate to me that he's going softly on the McCanns.

I think we can safely assume that the "source" has pink all over it. And given that GA doesn't speak English it would appear that Clarrie can add fluent Portuguese to his cv.

Another article from the Sun:

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/3341709/grubby-profits-made-by-the-odious-goncalo-amaral-over-madeleine-mccanns-disappearance-turns-the-stomach/

THE SUN ON SUNDAY SAYS Grubby profits made by the odious Goncalo Amaral over Madeleine McCann’s disappearance turns the stomach
The grubby individual who ran the investigation has now sworn to bankrupt the grieving McCanns


MADELEINE McCann’s parents had suffered more than enough even before the odious cop Goncalo Amaral set out to make their lives yet more hellish.

They will never stop grieving for the little girl abducted from their holiday flat in 2007.

The rag is hated everywhere. This just days after its editor saw fit to give the truly odious Kelvin MacKenzie space for his racist and vile vendetta against Merseyside. They define grubby, it's what they do.

Disgusting journalism, how they can call the lead investigator, and a man with a law degree these names is pathetic. I smell panic and desperation in this article......... something is about to blow?

It's a free country. We are all free to show our opinion of the Sun's "journalism" by exercising our right to not purchase a copy, every single day of our lives. I know that's what I do.

I had to laugh when, with what was generally praised as an excellent performance for Everton yesterday, Barkley showed far more aptitude for his job than McKenzie ever has. Plus Barkley undoubtedly earns a lot more too. That's what happens when your worth is valued in a free market I suppose. Some people can cut it and some just can't.....

Regarding this other drivel this morning, can you imagine having to put your name to that - even as, undoubtedly, you don't agree with a word of it yourself - just so that you can pay your cocaine dealer every month? OK, so they might have the platform, but we have all the dignity.

I stopped buying the sun, even when asked to for other people, the day they ran the disgraceful line "gotcha" about the premature deaths of young men of the "wrong" nationality.

The sun is still boycotted by many on Merseyside after Hillsborough, I am told that there are still newsagents who refuse to sell it.

No offence to Sun readers ( Very Happy ) but how anyone with 2 brain cells to rub together can believe the rubbish spouted in the article     Rolling Eyes

The dad of three has already put in a claim for 10,000 euros , around £8,500, to cover legal costs.
But the ex-cop, who was out enjoying a beer in the sun on Friday, could claim tens of thousands more.
A source said: “Amaral holds the key to making life financially very tough for the McCann
“He has told friends he intends to do just that. He wants to squeeze every penny he possibly can out of them, clean them out. He has no shame at all.



I doubt 'the source' is CM, sounds more like KM having a temper tantrum.  Are they hoping some id**ts will donate because of this article?     Bile indeed and clearly so.

Must add, just had a thought - Of course this is TM's nightmare come true now with the latest Supreme Court judgement. Sleep well TM affraid

A cheap shot at keeping the story rolling but perhaps that's a good thing because it keeps the focus on the McCanns' predicament perhaps? They are the story that won't go away and that's not good for them, surely?

If Amaral is only going to claim for the balance of his costs, rather than all of his costs, doesn't that mean that everyone who contributed to his legal fees has made a nice present to the McCanns?

Wouldn't it have been better to claim the whole lot, and have passed the donated money on to a charity?

I think it is down to what the court decides concerning costs and they decided that the McCanns must pay a certain proportion of Amaral's costs.
In different circumstances he might have had to pay all of his costs.
