Dominic Heale (anchorman): Let’s go live to Lisbon now and our reporter Mike O'Sullivan. Good evening, Mike.
Mike O’Sullivan: Yes, good evening Dominic, there’s been huge interest in this story today from the British and Portuguese media as the McCanns came to Lisbon. They want this Civil Court here to uphold the ban on a book written by a former Police Chief in the Madeleine investigation, a Police Chief, who unfortunately seems to have a very low opinion of the McCanns.
Mike O'Sullivan, to Gonçalo Amaral: Is your book hurting the McCanns?
Gonçalo Amaral, walking: No, BLEEP Mccanns.
Mike O’Sullivan: This is the former Police Officer whose book 'The Truth of the Lie' has caused so much heartache for the McCanns.
Dominic Heale: So Mike, an amazing outburst from the man who was in charge of that inquiry, what did you think when he made that comment to you?
Mike O’Sullivan: Well frankly Dominic I was astonished and so was my cameraman as, well, you know that a former Senior Police Officer could, could use a term like that aimed at the McCanns. I had to check back the tape to make sure that is what he said, using that four letter word and I had to ask senior colleagues at East Midlands today to check it as well before we could use it, because it really is crude.
Well, I see here one of two options, BBC, you either unbleep this video so that we all can hear like Mr. Mike O’Sullivan, his cameraman and his senior colleagues at East Midland did and checked it and confirmed it the times they thought necessary before airing it, so that we too can slam Mr. Amaral for such foul language; or apologise, publicly.
We’re still waiting.
