This Judge doesn`t allow any nonsense by the sound of it.  I like this bit :-

"b) Guerra & Paz's lawyer's questions

GP - Do the British know the official investigation was inconclusive?
MW says the majority don't know.

The Judge observes that the witness keeps on saying that the conclusions of the Amaral book came on top of the Attorney General's Report. She wonders whether the people have knowledge that an official investigation exists. Are people aware that "we don't know what happened"?

Which IMO is the foundation on which this whole palaver stands.  The investigation into Maddie`s disappearance is inconclusive, we don`t know what happened.

The McCann`s are acting as though their own investigation was the `official` one and is the only one that counts.  Gladly, the Judge has noted this.

Don`t think it would have been Martin Brunt tiny - think he only works for Sky, not Channel 5.

Don`t know what MW meant about emails he received - maybe to his private email address or to their Find Madeleine website.

It could be the same incident as I know Sky used to (probably still do) produce Channel 5 news.

Yes, GA must have been really peed off to keep doing interviews and then the MSM not using them.  Don`t blame him.

Just seen Shubob`s post - didn`t know Sky and Channel 5 were connected.

Even if GA did ask for money to do the interview what difference is it from the McCanns asking for money for doing interviews.

Only 13% of the money in the McCanns' fund was spent on searching for Madeleine, why not 100%???  What have they done with the other 87%?   Why haven't they sold their house and donated their own money for the search for Madeleine (well, obviously they're not stupid are they when they can get children and pensioners to donate and they don't have to spend a penny of their own money).

SY have been searching for Madeleine (supposedly) for the past 2 years but the McCanns are still asking for donations on their website, what for??  Even £100 donations!  Why didn't they take off the donate buttons knowing full well that SY were searching for Madeleine.

Even Dave Edgar said in Court that the PJ were still searching for Madeleine after the case was shelved so what are the McCanns going to do with all that money in their "Fund"?

Sky News since 2000
In March 2000 Sky News Active was launched, a 24-hour interactive service providing headlines (and other services which ranged from weather, the top story of the day and showbiz) on demand.
In March 2004 it was announced that Sky News had won a 5-year contract to supply news bulletins to Channel 5, taking over from ITN in January 2005.

Gonçalo Amaral: The truth about the charges



 8 May 2009 | Posted by  Joana Morais




by Nigel Moore

Two days ago, Martin Brunt, Sky News Crime Correspondent, decided to use his blog to reveal the contents of an email Sky News had received from Gonçalo Amaral's agent.

The private email stated that it would cost 80,000 euros to facilitate an interview with the former PJ co-ordinator.

With unsurprising relish, Jerry Lawton, of The Daily Star, has today regurgitated the information contained in Mr Brunt's blog into a full-blown article.

Speaking exclusively to mccannfiles.com today, Gonçalo Amaral revealed the reasoning behind the decision.

He said: "I want you to know that I made the decision to get paid for any interview given to any British media, but that doesn't apply to anywhere else in the world.



"Its quite simple. I have given so many "free" interviews to the British media that were never published. They were censored and thrown to the trash. Next time they do it, I'm sure they will think twice about the money they pay."


Only this week, in Amsterdam to launch the Dutch version of 'the Truth of the Lie', Gonçalo Amaral and Sofia Leal gave their time freely to members of the public and press. In a 'question and answer' session, scheduled for 30 minutes, they stayed for 1 and a half hours discussing the case.

Mr Brunt, who has published details from a private email, and Mr Lawton, who, like so many Britsh journalists, is unable to write the name of Gonçalo Amaral without prefacing it with 'axed', 'disgraced' or 'shamed', need to question what they are doing to help find the truth about what happened to Madeleine. And how much do they get paid for doing it?

Clarence Mitchell raged in The Daily Star: "It is scandalous that anyone should seek to make money out of Madeleine's abduction?" But should a man currently taking wages from Madeleine's Fund - which, let's not forget, draws from the pocket-money and savings of children and pensioners, and was donated in good faith - really be adopting such a high moral tone? And why do the McCanns even need a PR person? Can they no longer speak for themselves outside of a scripted TV studio or film set?

And, as Columbo would say, one final thing...

This interview with Gonçalo Amaral didn't cost one penny. Or euro.

I found this first bit about Pinto intriguing :-

"20.09.2013 10am. The session starts with a request from the defence concerning a plaintive witness, the President of the Bar Association (bastonário da ordem dos advogados) since 2008, António Marinho Pinto (MP) who was supposed to give evidence this afternoon.

MP was cited as a witness in the libel writ but in January 2012 determined that he would submit a written statement, which was his privilege as bastonário. He was however obliged to inform the Court of his intentions.

On the 20th January 2013, MP declared his wish to waive his right to make a written submission and declared that he would be present to testify in the court room.

At the last minute, MP let the lawyer for the plaintive, Isabel Duarte (ID), know that he had changed his mind. He now wished to deposit a written statement on the basis of his privilege. This change would bring his written statement late to the proceedings and would not afford the defence an opportunity to properly consider his evidence or to put questions to him regarding same.

The judge said MP should have revealed his intention during the 10 legal days so lost his right because he didn't do so. It now falls to the lawyer for the plaintive to ensure that MP appears personally in order to be examined in the final allegations session."

First he wants to submit his evidence in writing, then he doesn`t, then at the last minute changes his mind again. The judge ticked him off, quite rightly and a bit risky cos I think he`s Chairman of the Bar of Lawyers - tthinks highly of himself and AFAIA is very palsy with ID.

ID - Did they feel deeply ashamed at being considered responsible for her death and the concealment of her body? Did they feel like cowards?
MW says "no, because they knew the truth". However he saw how Kate changed last week in Lisbon and how she couldn't smile or properly relax. She couldn't have come on her own because she feared people think they are responsible. Her behaviour in Portugal is very different.
Encore une fois, Tribunal's mot-du-jour!

ID - In what way was the relationship between the parents and the twins influenced?
MW The threats made them more vigilant, in particular when they started to use the internet at school or at home. Amélie googled her name and told Kate and Gerry she had found a site, Madeleine Foundation, which was at the top. So they realized they had to control the use of the internet.

Not obvious is it Michael Wrong? No wonder he needs his memory-aid?

We really have entered the Twilight Zone.....what was this aide memoire for ?  Dates? Specifics ? The type of thing you can get confused.


 No...............ID - When they learnt about it, how did they react? Was it sadness or pain? Were they socially and professionally affected?

GA's lawyer, SO, interrupts asking the Judge to ask the witness what is the paper he is reading.

MW says that they are notes about feelings, etc. to remember.

The Judge asks what is actually in the notes.
MW repeats that it is to help him remember

feelings and special contacts.

Which apparently he couldn't memorise himself, when told of them; so was forced to write them down in order to be prepared;

this in the hotel where he was/is (?) staying. Where is GM staying these days, btw? Do we know?

The Judge asks if he has any idea what led to them being made arguidos. Was it because the parents are the first suspects?
MW says "yes".

The Judge asks wasn’t there something during the investigation that led to their constitution as arguidos.
MW Not particularly. He adds he wasn't involved in that matter.

The Judge states that two facts were established:

1) The British police dogs detected the scent of human blood and also that consistent with a cadaver bring present.

2) These dogs detected the smell of human blood in the car rented by the McCanns.

The Judge asks whether these facts are of general knowledge in the UK.
MW Yes, they were, in 2007.

The Judge asks whether it was only before the shelving.
MW says there was speculation at the time, but analyses after the release of the files showed there was no conclusive evidence one way or another.

The Judge agrees but asks whether it wasn't the dogs that led people to speculate

The glorious thing is that he got caught out when the judge recognised that the paper wasn't standard file paper from the UK, or anywhere else, and he had to admit it was from the hotel.
Written the night before ? ?
In consultation with KM ? ?
Or with ID ? ? ?
Or both ? ? ?
If not - Kevin - how would he know what he had to write down ? How did he know what the answers were supposed to be to questions which had not yet been put, so that he could underline them in GREEN.

He couldn't even try to pretend that these were "professionally prepared case notes from years ago".
No. They were written the previous evening IN THE HOTEL.

Brilliant work Madam Judge !

I cannot wait to see her comments about that in the written judgment.
Or indeed to listen to the lawyers for the 4 respondents in their final addresses.
