I thought we were talking about press articles and who they put the blame on....ie bungling police etc not readers comments....

Well the press are addressing a readership...

Just making the point that I don't believe this type of spin - if that is what these recent articles are - is going to work in the McCanns' favour.

If Amaral had seen fit to visit the crime scene maybe we would have more facts,  he didn't interview the parents, didn't visit the crime scene, heard everything second hand. He could even  be classed as an armchair detective like the rest of us.

I think we're beyond this now, SH. The time of [ censored word ] and [ censored word] has gone.
People who are still interested in this case want to understand.

What exactly was his role in this case? At the beginning he was Portugal's best cop, lead detective, chief investigator, infact he was portrayed than being whiter than white. Wrote a book took the credit and the cash until his own character was revealed as not being totally unflawed. Now he is a bit player. Laughable really.

Not blaming him Red, just an observation.

SH , thought we just all were armchair detectives until I read the definition of one. Seems Amaral is too.

You think so?

He is now pretty famous. There may well be other books or projects using his name one day. In English.

You obviously don't understand the police hierarchy drummer but then nobody would expect you to.  Dr Gonšalo Amaral rose to one of the highest echelons of the Portuguese police through his successes.  To say that he was in some way a bit player is both false and disingenuous.  He was the coordinator of detectives in both the Cipriano and the McCann cases.  As the name implies, his job was to coordinate those beneath him.  He was not required to go out on the ground looking for clues or to interrogate anyone.

Dr Amaral rose to the equivalent of Detective Chief Superintendent which is one post short of Assistant Chief Constable if you want an equivalent in UK terms.  As such he was a very senior officer.

It is true that his career has been tarnished by the civil case brought against him by his brother and the fallout from the Cipriano beatings.  I am quite sure he regrets both these events as they contributed to his demise and eventual exit from the police.

A malicious prosecution for a crime which never existed. John Lamberton exposes egregious malfeasance by public officials.
