sorry seemed to have messed above post up.......




That is what the money donated should have been for Maddie....but IMO they knew they were going to need a hell of a lot of money.

To me it paid for there survival.... lawyer fees suing etc, ...exactly by persuing Goncalo Amaral they got publicity for his book that money couldn't buy

Would have probably been a different outcome if they didn't have the fund money...the right one IMO That Goncalo was right.  


Ex Cop accuses McCanns of using Fund for legal bills

Madeleine McCann parents accused by ex-cop of using cash for legal bills instead of search

MADELEINE McCann’s parents have been accused of spending money on legal fees instead of the hunt for their daughter.




By Jerry Lawton / Published 22nd September 2018

Ex-detective Goncalo Amaral has called on the couple to reveal just how much they have spent on “court cases”.

And he said it was “thousands of pounds not spent on looking for their daughter”.

The McCanns sued the ex-Portuguese police officer over claims he made in a book about Madeleine’s disappearance.

The couple said his assertions stopped members of the public actively looking for her.

They were initially awarded £430,000 in libel damages.

But the judgment was overturned on appeal, a decision later ratified by Portugal’s Supreme Court.

The couple have now gone to the European Court of Human Rights to try to get the ruling overturned.

Madeleine vanished while on holiday in the Portuguese resort of Praia da Luz in 2007.

Mr Amaral said it will not be his fault if the McCanns run out of cash, insisting he has never taken any legal action against them.

He told news website Portugal Resident.com that the couple should explain “how much money they have spent on lawyers’ fees”.

He added: “These were thousands of pounds not spent on looking for their daughter.”

Last night a spokesman for the McCanns, from Rothley, Leics, declined to comment.

Looks like GA is bringing to attention..... what most of the fund was spent on ......



"The McCann Fund never paid me anything, just paid - and a lot – to private lawyers and detectives to investigate me and file complaints against me, which is a utilization of that Fund that I don't see is compatible with its legally defined purpose - the search for Madeleine McCann", said Gonçalo Amaral







Gonçalo Amaral: “Daily Mail” story is “completely false”


Gonçalo Amaral: “Daily Mail” story is “completely false”
"The news published by the Daily Mail and other British newspapers about an alleged lawsuit I would have brought against the McCann is completely false. I did not file any lawsuit or demand any compensation from the McCann", Gonçalo Amaral told us, today after questioned about a story published by that tabloid, saying that the McCann may have to pay him 750,000 pounds for compensation because of a complaint filed by him, wiping out the Fund for the search of Maddie.
"The case reported by the 'Daily Mail' concerns a complaint filled by the McCann themselves with the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg against the Portuguese State. If that court decides any compensation must be paid, it can only be the Portuguese State to pay them, McCann, for failures of the Portuguese Justice system. If they lose the case, they will never, under any circumstances, have to pay any compensation to anyone”, said the former investigator of Polícia Judiciária.
Gonçalo Amaral also told us that "in the next few days" he will file a formal complaint against the Daily Mail and other British newspapers, which printed the same story, with the Independent Press Standards Organization (IPSO), a self-regulatory entity of the British Press.
"The McCann Fund never paid me anything, just paid - and a lot – to private lawyers and detectives to investigate me and file complaints against me, which is a utilization of that Fund that I don't see is compatible with its legally defined purpose - the search for Madeleine McCann", said Gonçalo Amaral.
