Court considers that the newspaper went too far in the news published about British citizen who came to be accused in the Maddie case
The Lisbon Court of Appeal decided that the Morning Post will have to pay 15,000 euros in damages to Robert Murat, the British who lived a few tens of meters from the apartment where Madeleine McCann Lagos was kidnapped in 2007.
"The goal of increasing print runs can not obnubilar journalistic duties, respect for the presumption of innocence, not taking statements or images that reach the dignity of persons, as well as news publishing raising discrimination," the judges in judgment dated middle of last month and now made public.
"Tall and pale hair, glasses, air friendly, helpful staff will be Robert Murat after a predator who acceded to sites of sexual violence, "wrote the Morning Post in May 2007. "Is this English for 33 years that the Judicial Police believed to have drawn little Maddie from the bed where she slept to the house where he lives with his mother." Another article from the same time counts as the researchers had found in searches at the residence of Murat "cassettes with pornographic images of 'serious violence' and links to sites of sex with animals. " For the Court of Appeal of Lisbon, the public interest argument can not be used to justify 'warp' facts 'insinuations' and conjecture that attributed to the British - who came to be made defendant in Maddie case - a "unhealthy personality of the area not only as to the pedophilia zooerastia, consistent with the practice of criminal offense related to the disappearance of the unfortunate child." How was proved that the dissemination of news in question meant that if Murat had gotten to have to disguise when she went out to the street to be named, coming to receive phone calls and letters with threats to their physical integrity, the judges condemned jointly and severally to pay the compensation to company owns the newspaper and professionals who signed the news. Soon in 2008, Robert Murat, living in Portugal for many years, received a compensation of 757 thousand euros of British tabloids also for defamation
I think google translate Correio-da-manha newspaper as Morning Post.
