Maddie's parents and Gonçalo Amaral fail according



By Lusa

18/02/2013 - 18:45


Case goes to trial. Parents of missing British child in Algarve in 2007 asking € 1.2 million to the former PJ inspector for alleged defamation.



The parents of Madeleine McCann, the British child missing in the Algarve in 2007 and Gonçalo Amaral did not reach court settlement in civil proceedings in which the former Judiciary Police inspector accused of alleged defamation.

Defense source said on Monday Lusa that "the parties have not reached agreement" and has called for "the resumption of proceedings" in 1. Civil Court of Lisbon, which will now have to schedule a new date for the beginning of trial.

The first hearing was scheduled for 24 January and, last week, the judge granted a stay of proceedings, in which Madeleine's parents claim compensation of € 1.2 million for allegedly defaming the former PJ inspector.

In this action, which prompted the request for seizure of goods Gonçalo Amaral as a precautionary measure, Kate and Gerry McCann still complain protection of rights, freedoms and guarantees.

In related case, 7. Th Civil Court of Lisbon decided in January 2010 to maintain a ban on the book Maddie: The Truth of the Lie , written by Goncalo Amaral, and video with the same title, based a documentary broadcast on TVI.

The ban of the book and the video, which presents the thesis of Gonçalo Amaral involvement of Kate and Gerry McCann in the disappearance of her daughter with the concealment of the corpse had been provisionally enacted September 9, 2009.

On 19 October 2010, the Lisbon Court of Appeal annulled the decision of 7. Civil Court, after which the McCanns appealed to the Supreme Court of Justice (STJ). In its judgment of 18 March 2011, the Supreme Court of Appeal upheld the decision.

Madeleine McCann disappeared on May 3, 2007, in an apartment in a tourist resort in Praia da Luz in the Algarve, where he was vacationing with her parents and twin brothers. At the time of the disappearance, Goncalo Amaral was coordinator of the Criminal Investigation Department of the Judicial Police of Portimão.

Kate and Gerry McCann, who have always claimed that the child was abducted, were made defendants in September 2007. The case was closed for lack of evidence, in July 2008, although prosecutors admit reopening if new data emerge about the child's disappearance.

Glad to hear this. Just hoping it wasn`t a ploy to play for time - goodness knows when the trial will be re-scheduled - could it be another 6 months - a year? By which time SY review will be finished and statutory legislation in place gagging the press?

I read this as GA has refused to give in the them and wants to get into court. Hope I'm right.

It's not been their month, has it?

First that nasty Mr Cameron refuses to give them what they want (and doesn't let them see the minutes of his meetings with the press). Now that dastardly Mr Amaral won't come to an agreement with them, well, not one that satisfies them, anyway.

Not to mention Tony's hearing not going to their plan.

Dearie me. Mr

Couldn't read any further.

Dr Amaral will take them to the cleaners for destroying his life.

As he is a man of honour, and the MCs wouldn't recognise the concept of honour if it gouged their eyes out,

this is the only and logical conclusion.


The moment when the Matador gains the moment of utter quiet.
Where the crowd is silent;

Where the Bull scrapes in the sand;

And the Matador turns around, and walks away, turning his back on the powerless bull; to the cheering of the crowd.



Dear Dr. Amaral, I hope to meet with you, as we all do.

You have set an enormous standard of morals and integrity.

I do not know how to add to this but for:

Oh you of innocent minds,

do you not remember when she was advised to look devastated in order to be believed?

A fresh onion will achieve this.

It will also jerk tears.

It really would not surprise me if GA were to receive discreet financial assistance towards his case from certain media sources.
I do hope so.

I'm trying to imagine the courage and determination of someone under such pressure ...
Good gracious.
Châpeau, Dr. Amaral!

We're "all" for "justice". But how far would anyone of us go?
Same for Tony.
I will have all extremities crossed on Thursday.

I've had that feeling for a while now that behind the scenes someone has been helping GA, both financially and with legal matters. It could be even a UK newspaper, it wouldn't surprise me.

Both the Portugese Police, Portugese media and the British press must be sick to their back teeth of having to kowtow to the McCanns for the past 5+ years.

ETA: Sorry, I've just reread your thread again, I seem to have repeated what you said.

I may be wrong but I can't help feeling that it was a ploy for time. If the hearing had taken place at the end of January and Goncalo had won then it would have helped Tony's case immensely, even though it is purely a contempt of court issue. If it was postponed for 6 months to try and reach settlement why is the negotiating concluded now, in less than 4 weeks? I would have thought it would have taken longer to get to the point of no agreement to settle. In any case I am still really pleased that Goncalo has made his stand but worry for Tony in the meantime. Good Luck for Thursday, Tony, just sorry I cannot be there for you this time.

I hope under Portugese law this pair are compelled to attend the hearing, and I hope they get a right grilling. A tough lawyer needs to ask them some tough questions under oath because it might be the closest they get to being put on trial as they so richly deserve.

Who gives a shit?!

Desmond? No. course not.

That's what his drudges ay at his feet per diem.

IIRC there were 20 days allocated for GA to consider whether he wanted to negotiate and if he did then the case would be adjourned for 6 months in order to seek an agreement. It sounds to me as if GA has replied `no negotiations thanks, end of`.

Yes I tend to think they were playing for time. Ah well - better get yer jack boots on Gerry and what with those negburns you might just get those nasty press people gagged.
