Mr
Enes says that just because people put forward their own theories, it
does not prevent other lines of inquiry being investigated.

Mr
Enes: Some parts of the book were put too strongly - it's not the way I
would have done it, but that's because I'm from another era...

The book was published very quickly to take most advantage of marketing opportunities, the court hears.

The marketing plan for the book was much smaller than normal, because we are a small publisher, Mr Lopes tells the court.

Despite the avalanche of testimony favouring Mr Amaral over the past two days, Mr McCann seemed to be quite upbeat.

He
explained that he was leaving the court case as he had unavoidable work
commitments in the UK, but that Kate would stay on until the end.

"I
think it's particularly disappointing that the police officers who
considered us responsible for Madeleine's disappearance...
4:59
jondipaolo:
"...are the same officers that we are depending on to carry on the search for Madeleine."
4:59
jondipaolo:
"The search for Madeleine is ongoing. We don't have any leads and we need to keep searching."
5:01
jondipaolo:
Mr
McCann added that mistakes were made during the investigation that now
cannot be righted - but that was not the point of the court case.

"We
made a mistake by leaving Madeleine alone in the apartment, and we have
to live with that. We can't change it," Mr McCann said.
