LIBEL TRIAL DISCUSSION HERE

Post by aiyoyo on 16.09.13 17:47

Defence Lawyer: Do you know if the book hampered the investigation?

Hubbard: I can't answer that.
Not helpful to the mccanns is it?


VC - What is the difference between the crime files and the book?

EL - says the book is easier to read.
No disparity in the factual contents then?  
In fact, she's promoting the book as quality wise better easier to read version.  What a Hoot!

I understand why GA is not testifying, as someone said before ( too big thread to search ) all he had to say is in the book. The twins are of course too young and Gerry as it seems, too busy. But Kate's here,she was in court, who better than her to testify all the harm the book did to her and her family? Where's the statistics of how the leads dropped once the book was released? IMHO if something dropped was the donations to the fund, that was a real tragedy! The fact that Kate is not testifying speaks for itself.
Also, their legal team IMO sucks big time. From the two first days of trial it's clear that they don't have the strong case they want us to believe!

We saw in the TB trial that their star witness tried to sneak something past the Judge, but was not successful, and had to admit that there was no evidence for what she had tried to get entered into the record.
Here one of their star "witnesses" - who seems not to be a witness in any conventional meaning of the term -, tried to sneak something under the wire, and has been caught out.
Two other "witnesses" have tried to sneak thinks past, and have also been caught out when challenged about dates, numbers of occasions, and so forth.
You would think they would have been better selected, (or better briefed !)
Maybe these are the best of the best.

I mean, would you agree to step into a witness box and lie, on behalf of a third party, under oath?
And THAT, imo, is WHY not a single one of their 'so into' 'T7 friends' hasn't volunteered to ride to their rescue.

I wouldn't expect JT/R'OB, MO/RO, or even the fragrant Fiona and Dave to be on the next plane over, THEY all have far to much to lose, unless the McS 'call their bluff' with 'something' THEY might let 'slip out'

If any of the T7 DO turn up NOW, imo, they will have been got at.

Only my personal THEORY, you'll understand.

Long time friends would have been far more convincing. 

As for the tapas crew, I am rendered speechless.  These are the people in whom Kate and Gerry have 100% confidence, yet they would not return for a reconstitution and, so far, no sign of them for this very important trial.  They too were awarded damages from The Express newspapers - £350k I believe, that we are told they donated (in its entirety?) to Madeleine's Fund. A Fund that is pursuing more damages.  They had the front to stand on the steps of the Royal Courts of Justice following their victory against the Express Group.  The expression fairweather friends comes to mind.

I'd also like to know if Emma Loach's claim, that she saw Amaral's book on sale in a UK bookshops, will be pursued. How can she possibly be considered a credible witness when her answer is blatantly untrue? Given that the lawyer specifically asked her about the UK how will she explain this one?

c) Guerra & Paz's lawyer's questions

GUERRA & PAZ - Do you know if the book was published in the UK?

EMMA LOACH - says she saw it in bookshops

If they pursue it, they give her a chance to backtrack, "Oh I might have been mistaken ...I might have seen it while abroad ...blah de blah blah".

As her testimony stands, she saw the book for sale in the UK. Clear and unambiguous, 100%.

If the defense case later proves that the book was never sold in the UK, Emma Loach's credibility is blown out of the water.
They should have asked her: 
Do the McCanns pay you for appearing here as a witness?
How much?
Did you make a documentary on their orders?
Is that documentary telling it as it was, a true rendering of the facts?

**********

Expletive thinking deleted

**********

Q 4: I don't know, Judge
I wont be surprised they are paid a small fee for their appearance. Bit like guest stars/support casts if you like.
Else why would they put aside a work's day, when time is precious, and time is money to these professionals, to testify for a pair they only met through their profession?
It cant have been a novel chance to visit Praia da Luz so what makes it attractive for them to stand as witness for Mccanns?
If not friendship then it has got to be MONEY.
Even if they'd become friends with Mccanns unless they're socialising regularly and become close, there is no possible basis or reason to be witness for newly acquired friends especially given the mystery circumstances of the case, and given Scotland Yard is working on the case, and verdict unknown.

Imagine how stupid they will look if ever......

Easier to read? So every dingbat in Portugal could understand its contents? But do people not read newspapers over there on the Mediterranean (Gerry-quote somewhere)?

But hey, wait: EL doesn't know Portuguese from Watutsi, does she? 
So how would she know about dr Amarals book being easy reading?

Friends of Kate and Gerry McCann have accepted £375,000 in newspaper damages at the High Court.

Yes, if KM was so worried about the harm done to the search for her daughter she should be speaking on Madeleine's behalf, by not doing so she shows what a coward and a lousy mother she really is.  Any mother would fight tooth and nail for their daughter, but "oh no" not KM, she's too busy doing other things, like bringing in vulnerable witnesses who have made complete idiots of themselves and a mockery of the "search for the truth for her daughter" just to save face for KM.

Come on Kate, show some respect for your daughter and get on the witness stand and answer some of those "hard" questions like your vulnerable witnesses have had to answer.

It is a hoot isn't? If the files are too much for you to get your head around then I recommend Goncalo Amaral's book 'The Truth Of The Lie' which is written in an agreeable and easy to read style (not to mention clear, concise and truthful)

Right, the McCanns are trying to prove they were upset by GA`s book, but how do you prove WHY the McCann`s were upset?  Was their upset caused :-

(a)  Because the world wouldn`t continue to look for their daughter, or

(b)  Because they`d been sussed?

It would be hard for most people to realise exactly what someone is REALLY upset about, let alone new friends they`d made.

In fact, none of this wrangling can go anywhere until its proved whether or not the McCann`s had involvement in their child`s disappearance.  I`m half waiting for the judge to say something along these lines.

Yes, if it can be proved - but I`d hardly say she was putting in her best effort - and I thought she was meant to be highly regarded in legal circles.  Perhaps she coming up to retirement and is thinking what the hell.

That is the crux of it Ayniia.  The Fund accounts would give a definitive picture of how Goncalo's book affected the donations to the Fund, the losses could be illustrated with a graph and perhaps a Director giving evidence?  Surely donations to a Fund is as good a gauge as any, to how the public perceived the McCanns following publication of Goncalo's book.  Of course that would place the Fund open to scrutiny.

c) Guerra & Paz's lawyer's questions

GUERRA & PAZ - Do you know if the book was published in the UK?

EMMA LOACH - says she saw it in bookshops


She hasn't answered the question thus making it sensitive.

She doesn't tell us A) the was published in the UK
B) where the bookshops were that she allegedly saw them in.

By not answering the question, she is answering the question

I am not really surprised Mr McCann is nowhere to be seen.He likes to be a winner, a true competitor.He does not like to be seen as a no-hoper or as an idiot.He does not like to be humiliated.

I think our Mr McCann could see the writing very clearly on this wall and decided to stay behind, obviously to look after the twins!!

The whole half-hearted effort of their 'legal' team and their 'witnesses' give the impression that this was a legal action that they wish was not taking place.Once committed to it, they had to see it through, however ridiculous it is appearing.Their regrets will increase if and when the costs of all this are awarded against them.

Money talks  
'Leitmotif' in this whole saga and now again.
It's written in capital letters.
No money, no grooming, no effort whats-o-ever has been spent
on the preparation of this trial.

Because they cannot win, deserted the sinking ship already.
Only minor,hired poets, shielded by the fact that they fell for the story.

Please let it stop, let the truth be known and all wrongs righted!

Out of respect of Madeleine McCann, let her forever be loved and respected!

I suspect if the McCanns lose, they may not appeal. They may bluff about doing it for face-saving purposes though.
