It's interesting how the media make very little mention of the fact the TV company are being sued too. It's all about Amaral and his money, conveniently sidestepping the other party. IMO it is a grave mistake on behalf of Team McCann as they are looking ever more greedy and vindictive.

I have no doubt that the Mccanns would wriggle out of the Judge finding in favour of Amaral - they'd pin it down to yet another instance of how unjust and incompetent these sardine munching Portugese are. That said, it would not be easy especially with SY talking about Maddie's body.

If Amaral loses then he will fight on as best as his health and wealth (or rather lack thereof) and he would become, to some extent, a greater martyr than he already is and history is replete with tragic martyrs and the danger they can pose "establishment".

However, the best case scenario for them is simply to have this drag on indefinitely. They can then harp on about the crazy system, childcare, Amaral's sardine budget for years and years.

As the libel is not about the truth of Goncalo's book, but the damage to the McCanns' reputation, I wonder if this case will be in the bizarre situation five years down the line, where Gerry and Kate in their respective prisons, will be awarded financial compensation?

I think the McCanns lost the exclusive right to claim 'abduction' during their legal proceedings against Tony.  When their lawyer was asked what proof there was of abduction, she only had the word of the McCanns.

It seems to me that the word 'abduction' has been dropped from the narrative, even the MSM seem reluctant to use it now.

Devastated that someone knows what they did, fearful that evidence might emerge to prove him right, and desperate to shut him up.

I haven`t heard it used for a long time by MSM. As if it is being studiously avoided.
