Madeleine McCann: Kate To Attend Libel Hearing

News > UK News 3:00am 12th September 2013.


Madeleine McCann's mother is attending a Portuguese court for the start of the family's libel action against a former police chief which could see them receive £1m in damages if they succeed.

Kate McCann will be accompanied by her mother Susan Healy for the first hearing of the case against Goncalo Amaral, who published a book making allegations about the three-year-old's disappearance in 2007.

The McCanns have strongly denied the accusations and say the former detective's claims have damaged the hunt for Madeleine and exacerbated the anguish suffered by her relatives.

Their lawyer Isabel Duarte is expected to set out the case - on behalf of Mrs McCann, her husband Gerry and their twins Sean and Amelie, now eight - at Lisbon's civil court.

Mrs McCann, who is travelling to Portugal without her husband, could have been called as a witness, but is not expected to give evidence.

Instead, a number of relatives will appear in the witness box. They will speak about the "damage" caused by Mr Amaral's book which, they claim, poisoned public opinion in Portugal against the family and allegedly deterred people from hunting for Madeleine.

Spokesman Clarence Mitchell said: "Kate and Gerry McCann remain very confident that they will win the case.

"They have a strong case against Mr Amaral. The matter is now in the hands of their lawyer as it goes through court."

It is understood Mr McCann is staying at the family home in Rothley, Leicestershire, to look after the couple's children.

Madeleine, who was nearly four at the time, disappeared from her family's holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in the Algarve on May 3, 2007, as her parents dined at a nearby tapas restaurant with friends.

British detectives launched a fresh investigation into her disappearance in July - two years into a review of the case - and believe she could still be alive.

The Portuguese investigation into Madeleine's disappearance is officially closed.

The libel case will be heard today and tomorrow. It will then be adjourned until next Thursday when the court will sit again for two days. A final hearing is expected on September 27. The judgement is expected to be deferred.

Update on BT Yahoo news site

Post by sharonl on 12.09.13 11:55

906 comments so far on this BT Yahoo news item:

http://uk.news.yahoo.com/madeleine-mccann-kate-attend-libel-hearing-010321561.html#pzMJgp5

Lots of quite defamatory comments being allowed, like this one:

Why wouldn't she answer the 48 questions put to her by police? Only liars need fear getting caught out. The truth remains the same no matter how many times you repeat it.

Hundreds of people giving the 'thumbs up' to this and other comments.

It's obvious there is a massive 'gap' between what the people actually think about this case and what the mainstream media are telling us to think

Miami Herald reporting the case, based on an Associated Press report:

Associated Press, 12.9.2013


LISBON, Portugal -- A Lisbon court has started hearing a libel case brought by the parents of missing British girl Madeleine McCann against a former Portuguese detective who published a book alleging they were involved in their daughter's disappearance.

The McCanns are seeking 1.2 million euros ($1.6 million) in damages from Goncalo Amaral, who was part of the police investigation into Madeleine's disappearance from a vacation home in Portugal's Algarve region in May 2007, days before her fourth birthday.

The McCanns' lawyer, Isabel Duarte, told reporters at the court Thursday the couple are seeking damages because Amaral's 2008 book defamed them. They say Madeleine was abducted.

Portuguese police closed the case in 2008 after failing to find out what happened to Madeleine, though British police are investigating what they say are new leads.

#madeleine Loach: McCanns have to monitor Internet use of twins Seam and Amelie to stop them finding out about book and Port TV documentary.


Added by Admin:

SKY News Report 6.17 - 6.23 tonight:

Summary of news item:


Recap of earlier news today:

• McCanns devasted
• Accused of ‘cover-up’ by ‘local police chief
• Court heard from 2 witnesses today

Then we had a report from Martin Brunt:

• Both witnesses said that the police chief’s accusations had a ‘devastating effect’
• The TV documentary made things worse
• Amaral had claimed that Madeleine had died ‘accidentally’
• The court heard from Susan Hubbard, whom Brunt described as ‘the wife of the former priest’
• Loach and Hubbard ‘couldn’t understand’ how Amaral was allowed to write and publish his book  
• The TV documentary made the McCanns and their friends ‘acting like crazy people, drinking heavily’

We then cut to an interview at the door of the court with the McCanns’ lawyer, Isabel; Duarte, conducted before the start of the day’s proceedings.

She was asked how much money Amaral had made from his book.

Answer: ‘We don’t know. It may never be found’.
Was he hiding it somewhere:

Answer: ‘We don’t know if he’s hiding it’

Asked again how much money he had made:

Answer: ‘I can’t say, there will be statements in court, you will hear in the court room’.

Asked once again, she declined to reply. She looked quite relaxed and was smiling.

Then it was back to Brunt who said that tomorrow the court would hear from:

• A London Solicitor (we presume that will be Anius McBride), and
• ‘A child psychologist’ and
• Susan Healy, ‘mother of Kate’.

Sorry if some of the quotes are not quite exact.

LISBON (AFP) - The mother of missing British girl Madeleine McCann was back in Portugal on Thursday for the start of libel proceedings against a detective who has written a book about the case.

Mrs Kate McCann and her husband Gerry are suing Goncalo Amaral in a Lisbon court for the book in which he argues Madeleine was killed accidentally and implicates her parents in her alleged 2007 death.

The McCanns have strongly denied the accusations and say the former inspector's claims have hampered the search for their daughter and exacerbated the anguish suffered by her relatives.

The McCanns' spokesman Clarence Mitchell said: "Kate and Gerry McCann remain very confident that they will win the case.

Christopher Morris article:

http://uk.tv.yahoo.com/daybreak-mccann-court-case-begin-over-ex-police-093100381.html

This morning's 'Daybreak' updated us on an issue which has been part of the public consciousness in the UK for several years now. The programme reported that Kate McCann, mother of the missing child Madeleine McCann will be attending a Portugese court later today as libel proceedings begin in the European nation against a former local police chief.

Goncalo Amaral published a book containing a series of allegations about Madeleine's disappearance. The majority of these allegations can still be viewed online, and essentially it is stated by Amaral that the public has been misled about the Madeleine McCann case, and that according to the evidence that he has collected, it is likely that this isn't a kidnapping case at all, and that Madeleine in fact died in the apartment that the McCanns were staying in on that fateful day in 2007.

The McCann family has claimed that Amaral's book has poisoned public opinion against them in Portugal, and that the book is not based on fact.

Meanwhile, 'Daybreak' reported that Kate McCann is unlikely to give evidence in the trial. Instead, the family's lawyer will outline the case when the hearing begins at a civil court in Lisbon on Thursday morning.

Mr. Amaral is expected to argue that under Portugese law he is completed entitled to make the claims that are contained in the book.

This will naturally provoke a strong reaction in people, both from those who believe and disbelieve what the McCanns have had to say about the disappearance of Madeleine. What can be said for certain, though, is that this case has dragged on for so long that it is incredibly hard to believe that any useful information is going to come to light at this point in time, at least with regard to finding Madeleine.

It seems phenomenally unlikely that a 4 year-old could have survived independently for six years since disappearing, and that no-one would have learned of her whereabouts.

Of course, Amaral's claims suggest that Madeleine's life ended some time ago.

In other news...
