Kate and Gerry have turned down a raft of media interviews on the ninth anniversary of the search for their missing daughter over fears they will focus on the libel ruling  News Group Newspapers Ltd

Ex-cop Amaral is set to republish the book which claims the McCanns covered up Maddie's death by faking an abduction. A court of appeal ruled in his favour after he was sued for libel  PA


Sources claimed the family are worried interviewers will focus on the libel loss and not the nine-year hunt for their daughter.


Kate, 48, and Gerry, 47, were devastated when a Portuguese court of appeal sided with Amaral, 57, depriving them of a payout they hoped would boost their search for missing Maddie.


A family friend told the Daily Star: “They would love to make a new appeal, but are aware that any journalist would want to inquire about Mr Amaral’s victory.


“They’re seething over the ruling. That’s the last thing they want to discuss. “


Amaral was ordered to pay damages last year after he was ruled to have libelled them in his book Truth of the Lie.

The funds were never released when he challenged the decision.


In the 2008 book he claimed the McCanns faked an abduction to cover up Madeleine’s death and they sued.


But a Portuguese appeal court ruled in favour of the former cop and overturned the libel payout.


Kate and Gerry, of Rothley, Leicestershire, are now lining up their own appeal in Portugal’s Supreme Court. 

Amaral has hinted that he may sue the McCann's for compensation.

Meanwhile, Amaral is reparing to re-publish his book which made him £286,000 on its first release.


Maddie,was three when she disappeared from a holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal, in May 2007.


Next month would have been her 13th birthday.


British cops have announced they are to wind down the search after exhausting a number of leads.


Scotland Yard boss Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe has said they have one lead"everybody agrees is worth pursuing" - but the British investigation will end after that if no more evidence arises.


They believe Madeleine was snatched during a botched robbery by a gang of thieves.
