Gonçalo Amaral: 'I Will Not be Silenced"
Sandra Felgueiras (voice over): The judge's decision on a request for an injunction of secret character that had been filed by the McCanns arrived this morning. Starting at the moment when Gonçalo Amaral's editor is notified, the sale of any books and videos that are still in stores will be forbidden. The editor has not been informed about this decision yet, but from what can be read, it is impeded from performing any new editions, and Gonçalo Amaral is strictly forbidden from making any comments that correspond with the parts of the book that defend the thesis that Madeleine died.
Gonçalo Amaral: What makes this worse is that they are trying to shut us up, but they won't shut us up, that is for sure, and the book will be published in English, even more so because the conclusions that are in the book are in the process.
SF (voice over): What is certain is that if Gonçalo Amaral and the editor do not obey the order, the court can condemn them to pay a fine of 1000 euro per day.
GA: It's a very dangerous decision. It's a decision that places the freedom of expression at stake. Let's see what the political parties will say. They will certainly have to say something.
SF (voice over): In Rothley, Kate and Gerry McCann rejoiced over the decision, even more so because it paves the way for a satisfactory outcome in the other civil action that they have filed in June against the former inspector, who was removed from the case and later abandoned the Polícia Judiciária. Over alleged moral damages, they demand compensation in the amount of one million and two thousand euro.
GA: What they want is to make money in order to pay for their house in Rothley, which is what they have been doing.
SF (voice over): Gerry and Kate have not heard Gonçalo Amaral yet, but from England they assert that the most serious part is that the former inspector's book damaged the search for Madeleine.
Influenced by this piece of news or not, the truth is that 'The Truth about the Lie' sold out in many Lisbon bookshops, this afternoon. This is almost a unique copy of a non-fiction book that became the most sold book during the entire year of 2008. 175,000 copies have been sold, and that is not counting with the editions that were translated for Spain, France, Italy, Denmark, the Netherlands and Germany. The adaptation of this book into a television documentary was watched by 2,209,000 people and became the single most watched television programme in Portugal, apart from football matches.
But is it the truth or a lie? This thesis from Gonçalo Amaral about the Madeleine McCann case has never been proved, and now, until an order to the contrary, it will have to be silenced.
