Should there be a link, Graceful1?
 
I can't find anything on the Express website which certainly makes a change with a McCann story.

It's to do with the forthcoming hearing in Portugal from what I can decipher; interesting that the Express is mentioning it rather than ignoring it.

Here now:

Madeleine: Fresh agony for Kate and Gerry McCann
KATE and Gerry McCann face more agony next week when their libel action against a former Portuguese police chief comes to court in Lisbon

The couple are seeking £1million in damages from Goncalo Amaral over allegations he made about the fate of their daughter Madeleine.
The hearing could not come at a worse time, however, as Scotland Yard detectives begin work in the Algarve to try to solve the six-year-old ­mystery of Madeleine’s disappearance. The Sunday Express understands officers have advised the couple not to attend the civil hearing.
They believe Kate and Gerry’s presence would provoke a media circus and could seriously damage their sensitive work on Portuguese soil.
However, Mr Amaral is expected to attend and give interviews on the steps of the court to support his view that Madeleine died in apartment 5a of the Ocean Club in Praia da Luz on May 3, 2007.
He will say that under freedom of the press he has the right to air his views, especially as he was in a senior coordinating role early in the investigation.
A family friend said: “He has spent months working on his case and is very confident he will win.”

The couple are seeking £1million in damages from Goncalo Amaral over allegations he made about the fate of their daughter Madeleine
Isabel Duarte, the McCanns’ lawyer in Lisbon, said: “Kate and Gerry do not have to give evidence so they do not need to be here. I am confident of winning.” She is seeking damages for Kate, Gerry and their twins Sean and Amelie, plus further damages for the harm caused to the search for Madeleine.
It is expected some of the McCanns’ family will give evidence at the trial to explain the impact Mr Amaral’s allegations had on them and on the global hunt for the missing child.
A source said: “Because of the sensitivity of the situation, police don’t want the McCanns anywhere near the country because they fear it could turn into a media circus. They have faith in the Yard investigation and will do what the police feel is best. It will be bad enough having all the old allegations dragged up again and repeated. No doubt Mr Amaral will want to say his bit outside the court and it will all flare up again. It will not be helpful for the Yard.”
Heart specialist Gerry and former GP Kate, both 45, of Rothley, Leicestershire, have vowed never to give up the search for Madeleine, who would now be 10.
Their spokesman Clarence Mitchell said yesterday: “The court process in Portugal is in the hands of Kate and Gerry’s lawyers and is purely a matter for them to proceed with.”

The police have told them to keep away because of their ongoing investigations and because their presence could case a media furore.    Well, well, well who would have guessed that would be the advice listened to.

Edited to add - on another post different thread - they will give evidence by video link. Well that's sumat I suppose, but how does that tally with the advice from the police about appearing because of the police ongoing investigations?

I should think the Express will be sending reporters to cover the hearing, maybe Martin Brunt as well. Interesting times, very interesting.

The effect on whom ?  On the McCanns - in which case this would be hearsay, or the effect on the family members, in which case it would be irrelevant.
And I can't wait for the follow up question about the global hunt !

And which members of the family are going to be chosen to attend to give evidence. Let us pray it is Philomena

You mean this Philomena, Petermac ?



 “He’s going in at 2pm today. But he’s not the main suspect, for some unknown reason there’s something about a sniffer dog sniffing Kate. Suddenly a dog can talk and says she smelled a death. How can that be when a British sniffer dog came out months after Madeline’s case. They’re doctors, if there’s a smell of death on them could that possibly be a patient?”

 who also stated that SHE KNEW Kate's book contained TRUTHFUL AND SCATHING things about the Portuguese police,  then went on to say that she MIGHT NOT READ IT because it was going to be too upsetting.

Exactly.
The one who talked about the "Greedy unscrupulous person" and thereby trashed the chances of the reward ever producing information leading to the recovery of Madeleine.
The one who doesn't know the difference between a "jemmy" and a "jimmy"
The one, who as you observe, ACCEPTS that the dog smelled death, and then tries to justify it.
Let us PRAY that it is Philomena who is going to give evidence on their behalf.

A family friend [of Dr Amaral] said: “He has spent months working on his case and is very confident he will win.”

Isabel Duarte, the McCanns’ lawyer in Lisbon, said: “Kate and Gerry do not have to give evidence so they do not need to be here. I am confident of winning.
So Agony in the McCann household can be defined as the confident prospect of winning £ 1m
Just as being held in a hellish lair for 7 years by a paed**** can be defined as coming to no harm ?

But both lawyers say they are confident.  Which is good, as they will both earn their fee.

Agony for them?

It was their decision to ask for ONE MILLION POUNDS from AMARAL (the one who has lost weight etc, if anyone remembers) Poor them?

Sunday Express forgets to mention this, of course.

They should be there, they wanted it in the first place didn't they?

I think that the Express might be extracting the urine with the headline.

Unlike most of the British media so far, it has printed information about the hearing and not used the usual insults - shamed, disgraced etc - about the Portuguese police.

The thought of Philomena as a witness has brightened my day!

'Kate & Gerry's presence would create a media circus' 

LOL - isn't this what the McCanns have been creating and wanting since 3rd May 2007?

"Even when we are abroad 'searching' for Madeleine, it's so devastating, we just can't imagine there's anything to smile about."

(memo to all Mccann 'supporters' reading this: GA has ALL the pictures of the 'depressed, devastated, forlorn' McS since they raised their 'action' against him)

Have a nice day.

Ah! This new agony, as opposed to all the old agonies above?  Is this whole Portugal performance because the law is the law in Portugal and a court case in Lisbon is not likely to go their way?
There is clearly no way, short of changing the constitution, that this courtcase can be stopped.  So the alternative is to prepare the public for the McCanns' agony present and future.
Confusion is good.

Lisbon hasn't been lucky for them so far - the time when Gerry  lost it. Kate saying she knows what happened and Gerry waying she never dreamt anything at all. So there.

I happen to think that this libel trial will not go ahead. I happen to think there will be some sort of last minute issue that will result in another adjournment. I really hope I'm wrong.

I really hope that this trial will go ahead, also hope that Mr A has few tricks  up his sleeve.

I agree I think something will occur to force a postponement.

But they prepare ahead to be seen as the victims, even though they are not.

It's a libel trial. It was brought about by Team McCann. They are in the driving seat. As I understand things the McCanns have nothing to prove, they have highly paid lawyers (goodness knows who is covering those fees). It is for Snr Amaral to prove. The McCanns don't even need to attend. It's disgraceful imo but it's the way of libel trials and the subsequent highly paid lawyers (my Dad's bigger than your Dad) deal with these things.

The fact that Scotland Yard is now 'involved' in an investigation is imo a real opportunity to defer the proceedings.

The McCanns don't need this trial and don't need the money imo. What they and their woefully, fragmented team of people around them need is to show they are stoic winners.
