Ex-Cop: 'I Want To See McCanns In Court'

From Sky News

The disgraced former police chief who investigated the disappearance of Madeleine McCann said he is going to fight legal action from her parents.

Kate and Gerry McCann announced this weekend they are to sue Goncalo Amaral for defamation after he claimed in a book and series of interviews that they were involved in the little girl's death.

The couple, from Rothley, Leicestershire, said they are taking action because his claims that Madeleine is dead are hampering the search for their daughter.

His comments had also caused "indescribable devastation and suffering" to their lives, they said.

But Mr Amaral, who was in charge when the McCanns were made official suspects and was later removed from the case, said he plans to counter-sue the pair.

So this is where the Find Madeleine Fund gets spent? Or are they using their own money for this?


  1. The Court of Public Opinion finds them guilty.....well, I do.

  2. Not just Kate & Gerry but the kids have also decided to put their names on the legal papers. At least I assume they decided...

  3. Henry, they are trustees of the fund, and one of the objects of the fund is the 'support of the family' what 'own money' were you thinking of then.......
