Madeleine McCann’s Parents Defeated By Detective Who Accused Them Of Covering Up Tot’s Death

The search for Madeleine McCann may be going stale, but the ongoing battles between the missing child’s parents and a Portuguese former detective is getting a lot of attention. That’s because Goncalo Amaral has defeated Kate and Gerry McCann in court after they initially sued him for libel. The tables have turned, and the former detective has reportedly won his appeal against the missing girl’s mom and dad. The Daily Mail reports that Amaral posted the judgement, proving his courtroom victory, which has immediately attracted attention from all over the world.

Kate and Gerry McCann sued Goncalo Amaral for libel after he wrote the book Truth of the Lie, in which he directly accused them of playing a role in the disappearance of little Maddie. In the book, Amaral alleges that Kate and Gerry were negligent for leaving the then 3-year-old child alone with two infants while they enjoyed dinner and drinks with friends. He alleged in the book, that Madeleine McCann died at some point during the hours that she was left alone by her mom and dad. Instead of seeking help for the child immediately, Amaral wrote that Kate and Gerry covered up her death. Goncalo Amaral reportedly believes that the McCanns faked their daughter’s abduction.
