Diário de Notícias - 28/4/2008

Gonçalo Amaral called her "cold" and said that Kate McCann was an"actress"

Pedro Sousa Tavares

An article from a Spanish newspaper ridicules the inspectors of the PJ.

It is a very hard article to the Portuguese police in general and to Gonçalo Amaral in particular, the one that was published on Sunday in the Spanish newspaper El Mundo.
The phrase concerning to Kate McCann was atributed to Gonçalo Amaral, the cop who was removed from the case after critics to the British police:
"You did not see the mother (of Madeleine). You do not know the mother. She is cold. She is cunning. She is an actress".

The journalist that writes the article, Aníbal Malvar, had been already in Praia da Luz and has been following the case. The declarations were given presuming that the source would not be identified. But the journalist considers that after the retirement of the inspector there is no need to maintain the anonymity.

The conversation was based in the critics made to the inspector by the British press. But Gonçalo Amaral was only offended by the comments concerning his outfits: "He is not concerned of being classified as a drunk. What upsets him is that the British press talks about his wrinkled outfits."Damn Aníbal. This suit is Hugo Boss".

Aníbal Malvar divulges also a conversation between the inspectors João Tavares and Francisco Meireles that he heard. In the pieces quoted, João Tavares appears describing the virtues of "improvisation" of the "Portuguese cops". "We cannot loose our intuition as cops... We have to be wilful, we are not Norwegian. We are Portuguese and the Portuguese cops improvise, count on intuition". And he adds "We smoke, we like to eat and to drink".

The article clearly states that the Portimão police "is convinced that the couple is guilty in the disappearance of the daughter. And that they manage to hide it thanks to their high level influences".

The DN tried to contact Gonçalo Amaral to comment. Carlos Anjos, from the Union of the Criminal Investigators said that "the Spanish have much more cases of missing children than we have in Portugal". And he added concerning this reportage: "If every time that a crazy or any other person, or whatever, says bad things about the police we had to comment or react we would not do anything else. We must have the notion that people are free to express their opinions, each person has his/her opinion".
