Here is Amarals version of what happened - complete with errors.
FIRST EYE WITNESS STATEMENTS; KATE HEALY'S SURPRISING REACTION
Madeleine's parents are already back in Vila da Luz when we receive photos taken on an area of the motorway: you can make out the figure of a little girl, who looks like Madeleine, accompanied by a couple. These images come from a CCTV camera on the motorway linking Lagos to the Spanish border. The McCanns are asked to come to Portimão in order to proceed to an identification. It's the end of the day. Kate Healy seems annoyed at coming back and made uncomfortable by the speed of the police car taking her. We are somewhat astonished by her reaction, as if she was not expecting to get her daughter back. The identification turns out negative.
It's less than 24 hrs since Madeleine disappeared and he is already suggesting to his readers that Kate is not expecting to get her daughter back!
By the use of the word 'WE' any reader who didn't know better could be forgiven for wrongly believing that he was there personally witnessing all this.
How anyone can read his version and not see how biased Amaral was against the McCanns - and in particular against Kate - right from the get go - is beyond my comprehension.
