Are you sure that he is not in Brasil or up in his home village ?

Can you prove that  Encarnacao died ?

What conspiracy theory is that from?

Perhaps Amarals conspiracy theory with the UK government and MI5 being involved.
He is fond of conspiracy theories.

Sadie seems to think Encarnacao faked his own death; which is nothing to do with what you have posted.

Well whatever Sadie's theories are, she has not published her theories to the detriment of anyone, unlike Amaral whose conspiracy theories have been published and expounded on many websites and television interviews much to the detriment of the parents of a missing little girl.

He apparently did die, Sadie on 24 Feb, 2010.

Why does every discussion seem to end up with Amaral being dragged into it?  His theories have no relevance whatsoever to what was said.

About the behaviour of Encarnacao and Neves,  which has passed under the radar, with all the attention being aimed at Amaral.

 Guilhermino Encarnacao, who was in charge of the Policia Judiciaria in the Algarve, died two weeks ago from stomach cancer.

Mr Encarnacao was convinced Madeleine had died in her parents' apartment and was a major source of a series of off the record briefings to journalists against the McCanns.

He may have done, but I have some doubts about that (or at least the extent). It would take quite a bit of digging back to back up why I'm a wee bit suspicious.

If you cannot accept that he had an integral part in the continuing discussion of the disappearance of a missing little girl, then in my opinion you are avoiding an important part of the debate.

Fair point, but he did place himself in the spotlight far more than any other officer involved in the investigation. Even prior to the actual publication of the book, he had a regular column in CdM spouting his theory as soon as he'd officially "left".

Maybe so, but he played no part in Sadie's suggestion, which is what I was discussing.

The Portuguese procedural system assigns the arguido the right to remain silent during all stages of the procedure from the moment of formal designation as arguido. The arguido is under obligation to give their true identity and details of a criminal record if any. The arguido cannot make any statement under oath. Under Portuguese law the arguido's choice to remain silent cannot be held against them.

Kate McCann's right was to remain silent. She chose to exercise that right. Quite why we don't know but the "they were gonna stitch her up wasn't they" and "She must have had something to hide isn't it" would seem not to stack up under the circumstances.

Bearing in mind that investigators are a bit like a badger with a curled up hedgepig, that is looking for a chink that may be exploited, the best strategy if there are two of you is one says nowt the other answers the questions.

That was confirmed when Kate and David both answered questions about the visit only hours before Madeleine's disappearance. What a cluster....
