Amaral says Maddie Clue is Rubbish
Former PJ coordinator denies giving an interview to Australian channel (now removed from view in the UK).

A Deceitful trick. This is how Gonçalo Amaral (PJ) former Inspector of the Judiciary Police (PJ) classifies the documentary on Australian channel 7 on the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, that revealed a clue about an employee of the Ocean Club in Lagos, where the child disappeared almost 10 years ago.
The production of the Sunday Night programme used images of the former PJ coordinator strolling along the beach. Amaral told CM that "it's a lie" that he gave any interview for this program.
"I do not know how they did it, I've been to many beaches, but never with that journalist [Rahni Sadler]. It's a deceitful falsehood, which only demonstrates the lack of credibility of that so called clue," said the former PJ investigator. the Parents of the English Child have "a powerful and well-oiled communication machine that over the years has contributed to the defense of their main concern: Their Image."
Amaral also says that he was "shocked" by Maddie's father's response to the question of whether he has killed his daughter, in the documentary. "It's strange that a father has to say what he said. A simple" no "is more spontaneous and sincere than an emphatic" no, nothing "(father's words)," he says.
As Gonçalo doesn't speak English, maybe the conversation went like this:
RS: Gudday Bruce, what d'ya reckon about the new clue our film is gonna reveal about an Ocean Club employee where Madeleine disappeared ten years ago?
RS: Good on ya cobber, that'll do nicely.
