Absent friends


The McCanns. They are shown demonstrating the terrifying psychological damage that their libel writ describes.

We ourselves have had no information about whether S. Amaral’s lawyer Antonio Cabrita has ceased working for his client. Still, as we wrote in 2010 Cabrita is a serial incompetent who came close to destroying what remained of Scotland Yard police officer de Freitas’s career by his bungled attempt to call him as a witness for Goncalo Amaral as well as simultaneously embarrassing both the Yard and Leicester police.

Some weeks later he excelled himself in court when the prosecutor Menezes offered him a gift-wrapped treat in the form of his now-famous statement that the group had lied about the “checking”. Unfortunately Cabrita gave it back to him unopened. He completely failed to appreciate its importance and thus didn’t develop a line of questioning that would have brought its significance to the attention of both the judge and the slavering media pack outside. Finally the “interpretation” finding in the appeal court judgement which brought eventual success to S. Amaral seems to have owed more to the judges’ own reasoning about the case than to any arguments put forward by Cabrita. Nor does it help that he has been severely and incurably ill for some years.

That was why we called on Amaral to get rid of him and that’s why we can’t help thinking that any replacement would be preferable. But what do we know?

The McCanns describing the appalling and continuous symptoms of pain that the libel writ outlines.

Anyway the case is postponed, to the disappointment, no doubt, of those who are certain that Amaral is hurtling towards his doom. Much has been made of the impossibility of S. Amaral demonstrating the likely truth of his central contention that the child died in the apartment on May 3. After all we have David Payne who can testify that he saw the child alive, well and strikingly pretty at 6.40 PM, staff at the Tapas restaurant who can testify to the couple’s arrival time and the unanimous evidence of the whole group that the demeanour and behaviour of both Kate and Gerry McCann was completely normal and untroubled until 10 PM that night. All the other stuff, say the parents’ allies, such as the traumatising effect that the parents claim Amaral’s accusations had on them, is really unimportant and peripheral compared with what these solid and undeniable witnesses will tell the court.

So what are we to make of the witnesses called by the McCanns?

Just a little reminder

Well, a large chunk of the police and legal system are there, from Alipio Ribeiro down — João Melchior Gomes, António Marinho e Pinto, Paolo Rebelo, José Barra da Costa. Oh, and our dear old friend José Magalhães e Menezes. That the latter was called by Amaral himself in the Lisbon hearings should remind us that in Portugal a witness for one side or the other has a rather different status than in the UK. Their knowledge of what happened in apartment 5A that night comes to them courtesy of Amaral’s officers at the scene.

Then we have Susan Healy, Trish Cameron and Michael Wright. They were rather a long way from the apartment that night but with luck they’ll be able to tell us all about those shutters. And Susan Healy can tell the court all about her conversations with Kate McCann about the deal that the PJ offered.

Next we have Emma Loach, Susan Hubbard and Alan Pike who’ll be able to give the court plenty of “colour stuff” about what wonderful people the pair are and the dreadful symptoms that the pair have been showing ever since Amaral made his claims.

Now some big guns to prepare us for the climax:Ed Smethurst, that well known eye-witness to events will be there, as will Jim Gamble, a Mr David Trickey and Angus McBride.

Finally, ladies and gentlemen, after all these warm up acts we have the stars of the show, the Tapas 7.

Only they’re not there. Not one of them. They aren’t calling a single witness with actual knowledge of anything that happened in and around apartment 5A that night. Well, well, well. Not one.

However there is one last name to add to the list: that modern Sherlock Holmes, Dave “Strangler’s Hands” Edgar. He’ll sort it all out.

So,those in bold, are they the witnesses the McCanns are calling? How does Blacksmith know this I wonder? As he says, not a single witness who was out there around the time it happened.

http://www.mccannfiles.com/id224.html Could somebody ask Emma Loach,video-UK-witness, why they hired Lisa Donovan,and then cut her of the #mccann film.

Good question, why is Emma Loach a witness in a libel trial? As per Blacksmiths post.

Is Amaral going to be allowed to show them some of the many happy pictures of the McCanns? Starting with the one on the balcony around the 11th May 07, the zoo, the Amsterdam pictures and the little video where they didn't know the camera was already live.
Besides, their allegations seem rather flimsy to me, surely it is a matter of opinion how distressed you are?

I cannot see how GM has been able to work for the NHS if he has suffered so much since Amaral Goncalo's book has been on sale. Can't recall exactly the symptoms the McCann's have claimed to be suffering, but they would have been wrecks unable to function at all. They did very well at the LI, all those statements they put together wouldn't have been possible if they were suffering as they claim. GM's a heart consultant, how on earth has he been able to make decisions regarding patients treatment when he has barely been able to function. Why are the NHS allowing him to continue when it is clear from his list of symptoms he should not be in a position to make such decisions.

Well, this is the list of mccanns witnesses according to Blacksmith.
Can we rely on his source to be impeccable? Wasnt it him who reported that Murat was going to sue Tapas Jane and Fiona?


Ed Smethurst
Emma Loach
Susan Hubbard
Susan Healy
Alan Pike
Patricia Cameron
Jim Gamble
Angus McBride
David Trickey
Dave Edgar
Michael Wright

Alípio Ribeiro
José Magalhães e Menezes
João Melchior Gomes
António Marinho e Pinto
Paulo Rebelo
José Barra da Costa

None of these people was at the crime scene so what can they possibly provide that will support team mccanns.
This libel is about how Amaral's book hinders their search, so what can these witnesses contribute that will show the search was hindered by Amaral's book? Golly, team mccanns must be so desperate.
I thought kate's bewk is a big suicide note, now the mccanns risk imploding with their witnesses.

surely if these witnesses the mccanns have lined up to help get more £$£$£ for them,then these witnesses must have been living with the mccanns if they are all going to try to say how ill Mr Amarals book has made the mccanns,cant see any other way they can give an opinion.

also the murat v tanner ,i think this is a load of tosh

I have said it before and I'll say it again, I think Blacksmith is a fairly clever exercise in undermining Goncalo Amaral. The chipping away at Amaral has been a consistent theme of his. It wouldn't surprise me to learn that Blacksmith is one of our good friends that we send packing from time to time e.g Sans Souci.

Blacksmith says plenty that chimes with the anti point of view but there seems to be an anti-Amaral undercurrent to his work.

Beware.

Do we know who Blacksmith is? I used to confuse him with The Sargeants', so I'm not the best person to give a view.
Speaking of Paolo Rebelo - our great white hope for so long. Proved to be a waste of time. Worse, there is the lingering suspicion that he is the PT Govt's coverer-up in chief. Didn't he help to leave the Casa Pia case in suspension? And if his main experience was in the Casa Pia case, perhaps that indicates that the McCann case also has paedophile associations. Casa Pia and its web, extending to PdL?

On past form, I would take Blacksmiths claims of 'insider knowledge' with a very large pinch of salt. Rebelo went through the motions but the case was being prepared for shelving.
