Dr. Goncalo Amaral was the leading police officer of the initial 2007 investigation to the Maddie Case by PJ.
See a Vita of Dr. Amaral at →his Homepage.
Gonçalo Amaral’s wrote his book ‘The Truth of The Lie’ (Portuguese titel: 'A Verdade Da Mentira') about the case, which was published in July 2008. Nearly a year later, the McCanns’ lawyers filed a libel suit in the Lisbon Court claiming that his book had damaged the search for Madeleine and had caused them immense emotional distress. They demanded 1 Million Pounds (1.2 million euros) compensation from him.
The McCann vs Amaral libel suit is ongoing.
