Another insider said lawyers would become involved if he continued to make allegations about them being involved with Maddie’s death.
‘If he repeats any allegations that he has made before, Kate and Gerry’s lawyers will be looking at it. They have said before that their lawyers are watching,’ they said.
‘If Mr Amaral’s attempts to get his current book or his new one about Madeleine published in the UK, lawyers will take immediate action.’
Amaral’s first book, The Truth of the Lie, claimed Maddie’s death was accidental, and that her parents covered it up.
The McCanns have always maintained Maddie was kidnapped from her hotel room in Portugal.
