On September 8, we wrote a story – “The circus has came to town” - explaining the strategy to be followed in order to convince British public opinion that Gerry and Kate McCann were framed by Portuguese police. In the same story, we alerted for the interference of other kind of “organizations”, already in action, in Portugal: “Most of these activities have been conducted by retired British citizens, some of the long time residents in Portugal. Other group was 'recruited' among the already large locally born British community. These collaborators have an important skill, which is the capacity of speaking the local language, but their lack of experience means a higher risk and they have been used just in low-level operations.”
Criminal Coordinator Gonçalo Amaral was removed from the investigation, but his replacement wasn't who the McCann supporters expected. Yesterday, Daily Mail, a newspaper that has been spearheading the campaign against Portugal and Portuguese police, was given the “green light” to use the above referred “lethal weapon”.
