President Barack Obama has signed into law new legislation protecting US writers from foreign libel judgements. The Speech Act, recently passed by Congress, makes foreign libel rulings virtually unenforceable in US courts.
According to the British press in May 2007, a former British paratrooper, Colin Sahlke, went to Praia da Luz to search for Madeleine McCann. He sold his possessions and gave up his job and his rented home to finance the search. Under strange circumstances almost 3 years later, Sahlke suddenly died in bed on April 19, 2010.
Faked Abduction is the first English book to take a critical look at the police investigation and the way the media handled the case, without the pro-McCann propaganda that has been prevalent in virtually all British news articles.
Book out of print As of mid-November 2013 the book is out of print. Check back to see when the book is available again.
A few book Highlights:
• Copious footnotes and cross references to verify sources
• The statements deliberately held back from the Portuguese police by Leicester Constabulary
• The blatant discrepancies in the Tapas Nine witness statements
The McCanns have tried to gag people from publishing the truth about the case. In 2007, despite making several public assurances to donors to their “Madeleine Fund” that they would not spend any money on lawyers, they have employed some of the most expensive law firms in Britain to intimidate and suppress those who publicly doubt their abduction story.
