Gonçalo Amaral's book 'The Truth of the Lie' is banned by McCann's restraining injunction

PACTS OF SILENCE AND GAGGING ORDERS - The Mccann's way of 'searching' for Maddie.

The McCann couple was able to make an interlocutory restraining injunction against the book of the former PJ Inspector who investigated the disappearance of Madeleine.

The civil court of Lisbon accepted a restraining injunction by Gerry and Kate McCann and ordered to take from the market the book "A Verdade da Mentira", written by Gonçalo Amaral, which defends the thesis that the parents are involved in the Homicide and disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

The Court also prohibited the DVD sale with the reportage made by TVI based on the book of the former PJ Inspector. And, still according to the court, the publishing house Guerra e Paz will have to collect all the existent books [and burn them?] and deliver them at the hands of the McCann lawyers. A punishment of 1000 euros daily was established, by each day that goes by without the ruling being complied. This is a provisional ruling and it will have to be confirmed in trial.

A few interesting comments:

One thing is for absolute certain. We can now take it for granted that this case goes right to the top and is probably more seedy than the seediest thoughts we have ever dared to think and write about.

There's nothing like a banned book to make it more popular!

Let's see what happens & meanwhile, brace for the spin we'll see in the UK press now or very soon.

Today, i've never despised Kate and Gerry McCann more than i do right now.This is the man who put months of work into getting to the truth about theirdaughter, and at the expense of his own children and family time! They are outrageous!
