McCanns face quiz

Post by sharonl on 03.04.11 21:20

MADELEINE McCann’s parents are set to be quizzed in court later this year in connection with their daughter’s disappearance.

Kate and Gerry McCann, of Rothley, Leics, will face lawyers acting on behalf of the Portuguese detective who led the hunt for Madeleine.

They are suing former police chief Goncalo Amaral for more than £1million damages over claims he made about them.

Amaral, who believes Madeleine is dead, is due to call the McCanns in his bid to defend himself.

Last night the couple’s lawyer Isabel Duarte said she expects the libel trial to take place this year.

She said: “It could be June or July but most likely September. He can call them if there are things they can contribute (to his case).”

Madeleine went missing during a family holiday in Praia da Luz, Portugal, in May 2007.

I wish this would hurry up and be concluded.

Even their lawyer "spins". "He can call them if there are things they can contribute to his case."
No, dear. They are suing HIM. The case does not take place in vacuo unless he chooses to call them. They are an integral part of the whole process.

Personally I think it unlikely they would put themselves up for cross examination and I am fairly sure their lawyers will advise them to pull out at the last minute unless offered a setlement at the door of the court. If cross examined they would be on their own, without the protection of being able to refuse to answer, and without the hand signals we have seen so often. Far too dangerous IMHO, so I expect the 'spin' that the process was going to take too long, or cost the Fund too much, or Gerry couldn't get time off work, or the twins had a cold, so they have dropped the case, or something along those lines. Remember you read it here first !
