"Disgraced former police chief Goncalo Amaral told Portuguese TV on Sunday night: 'They had come knocking on the door. That person wasn't home'"

Oh dear..

The pock faced suspect as seen by a local schoolgirl who was standing on the opposite side of the road to apartment 5A, was / is almost certainly Christian B...

Similar to how top cop Sir John Stevens performed in the Stephen Lawrence murder.

The lady suspect who stood in a similar place, appearing to be watching the McCann apartment was almost certainly Charlotte Penington..

The mysterious couple who were said to have entered the McCann apartment on the evening of 1st May 2007, were undoubtedly the pock faced man (Christian B) and the lady dressed in red (Charlotte Pennington), which corresponded to the crying episode reported by Mrs Fenn on the evening of 1st May 2007.

The English is verbose and not always easy to follow but this is an interesting critique of Amaral's theory.  Worth a read.

The nanny (Charlotte Pennington) , along with an accomplice (the pock faced man - Christian and B) went to the finale apartment 5A to tend to the crying child(ren)  on the evening of 1st May 2007!

On this occasion, the McCann parents visited 'Chaplins bar' after their evening (concluded prior to 10.00 pm)  meal, at the Ocean Club)

This is what Kate wrote about Amaral.

"Amaral and his chums had evidently been poised to take full advantage of the long-awaited lifting of judicial secrecy. Now they really went to town: we had staged a kidnap, or Madeleine had died in our holiday apartment and we had hidden her body; we had influenced the British police and organized our campaign to mislead investigators into searching for a living child, and so on and so forth. No longer gagged by the law, Amaral was talking more and more openly to journalists and turning up on television chat shows. A friend in the Algarve kept us updated on his activities. It was unpleasant and distressing to hear what he was saying, but we had to know what Madeleine was up against in Portugal. And it was incessant. With the best will in the world, it is hard for anyone to absorb this stuff day in, day out and remain completely objective, especially when it is never challenged or balanced by an alternative viewpoint. It is impossible to convey, particularly to people outside Portugal who were not aware of Amaral’s behaviour, just how difficult this smear campaign was both to withstand and to counter. And we desperately needed to counter it: we have always believed that the information that can lead us to our daughter is likely to come from Portugal. This is where the crime was committed, after all. Blackening our names was one thing, but if people there were taken in by Amaral’s theories, they were going to think there was no point in looking for Madeleine, or in passing on any information that might be relevant. We are quite sure that Amaral’s posturing has reduced our chances of finding her. Why on earth would a former police officer want to convince the world that a missing child was dead – with no evidence whatsoever to support his claim? The only conclusion we could draw was that he was attempting to justify his actions while in charge of the investigation and at the same time promoting his forthcoming book to cash in on our misfortune. It just beggars belief."


"Later the same month, Amaral was given an eighteen-month suspended prison sentence in connection with a case in which three of his officers were accused of torture. The mother and uncle of another missing child – eight-year-old Joana Cipriano, who had disappeared in 2004 from a village seven miles from Praia da Luz – had been imprisoned for her murder, although no body has ever been found. They claimed they had been tortured into confessing (the police maintained that Sra Cipriano had fallen down the stairs). The officers concerned were cleared but the jury found that Amaral had falsified statements relating to the torture case. His conviction was upheld in the Supreme Court in March 2011. Joana’s mother is still in jail. Falsifying statements? It was difficult to understand why anyone would believe the theories of a police officer found guilty of such malpractice. While coordinating the investigation into Madeleine’s disappearance, Amaral had been an arguido. How on earth had he come to be put in charge of an inquiry into the disappearance of another missing child?"

More from Kate McCann

"To our dismay, however, the Portuguese press, galvanized by Gonçalo Amaral, lapped it up. Off he went on another round of the interview circuit – he even held a press conference on the matter – seizing this opportunity to air his allegations once again. It was absolutely soul-destroying. What probably galls me the most about Amaral’s interviews is the way he presents himself as a person who, perhaps above all others, really wants to find Madeleine and get to the bottom of her fate. I cannot begin to express how much this outrages me. His conduct in relation to the search for our daughter has led us to believe otherwise. There is nobody in the world more desperate than Gerry and me to find our daughter and to discover the truth – the whole truth – about what happened to her. What does he think has been the focus of our existence since 3 May 2007? At that point it was almost two and a half years since the prosecutor had closed the file and removed our arguido status. How many more times will we have these disgraceful slurs thrown at us? How many more times will they be pushed down the throats of the Portuguese public? Gonçalo Amaral has been convicted of falsifying statements and has coordinated investigations into the disappearance of two little girls, neither of whom has been found. Why is this man being allowed a platform from which to peddle his absurd and offensive ideas?"

It sounds genuine. But this is coming from a mother who refused to answer multiple questions about the disappearance of her own daughter.  The McCann's have been coached by experts and have had multiple resources made available to them, that would not normally be afforded to others in a similar situation.

Presumably, the crooked Amaral and his pals arranged for corpse odours to be distributed, to effect the dog alerts.

Martin Smith says Brueckner is not the man..https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/11964573/madeleine-mccann-witness-christian-b/

I think I still feel this case is soluble, but we don't have all the information. The German Police are obviously trying to link Brueckner with Inga Gehricke: https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/11793499/what-happened-germanys-madeleine-inga-gehricke-when-go-missing/

..and Rene Hasee https://inews.co.uk/news/rene-hasee-madeleine-mccann-suspect-christian-brueckner-investigated-disappearance-434736
 I think Smith th man was either Gerald McCann,  or Serge Malinka!

False positive.
