Libel Trial 7th Jan Postponed - confirmed

Post by Tangled Web on 06.01.14 23:31

Hope it's ok to post this here before definite confirmation. I've just been on the Hideho Facebook page and, apparently, Lizzy has heard from a trusted source that the trial has been postponed...

Just seen that too.
Very disappointing. Am I being too optimistic thinking it has some relevance to the postings on official page yesterday.
Poor Goncalo Amaral.

Trial postponed for 3 days of national mourning for Eusebio. No intrigue, no spin. #mccann

And bless Wikipedia. As up-to-date as tomorrow's newspapers.

Quote
"The former President of Mozambique and childhood friend Joaquim Chissano said that "it is with a feeling of great utter sadness that I get the news of his death. I lost a friend, when we were kids we used to play together, we played football together. He was almost family. Portuguese football lost one of his references. Football connected Portugal and Mozambique. Eusébio was a pride to the Mozambican people. Through sport, Eusébio was one of the ambassadors for Mozambique. His deeds will live on."[26]

Following Eusébio's death, the Portuguese government declared three national days of mourning.[27]

A Mass will be offered in his remembering on 6 January 2014 in Igreja do Seminário do Largo da Luz"

As trulysenile has recently used her scum cop alias to proclaim that 'of course the trial won't be postponed for a footballer fgs' thus implying that anyone who doesn't share her warped view of the world is a numpty, I think we can take it that tomorrow's hearing will be postponed due to Portugal's three days national mourning for Eusebio, RIP.

I don't believe that Redwood has ever been too close to the McCanns. He still looks too well and healthy and he didn't age at all.
It was not the case of Amaral's, who looked tired and less well for a long time, it was not the case of his lawyer Cabrita who got the Mexican flu, absolutely not the case of Mitchell who aged a extremely lot, and the McCanns too.

People who deal directly or indirectly with the couple, are always at risk.

Wish we had an up and down arrow to like or dislike a post.  The reply above is a classic.  I could not stop laughing!

I think it has nothing to do with the 3 days of mourning, although I don't know how reliable this is..........

As always S&M brilliant.  clapping 
How wholesome it is to rise to a good laugh. The day has started well. At this rate, at the gracious age of 71 heading onto 72 she has 28 years to fly in and out, entertaining us all with her predictions, before she gets her letter from the Queen.
On a more serious note.
I don't follow football at all, but it is so good to see that a boy from an ordinary background can become a person so beloved by so many people, for what he 'gave to society', not for what he 'took from it', and that he is so respected.
I don't recall any unanimity when Mrs. T. passed on, and now the 'papers of the time' are being exposed for their lies and intrigue re the miners' strike, just as Scargill (imprisoned for such) and many others, openly tried to argue at the time.
It is from the ranks of the ordinary people still, that true love and respect is shown.
RIP a national hero uniting nations.  roses

Legal argument at this stage? Maybe they're now insisting they be heard as witnesses. Let's wait and see

If they are "arguing" to be heard then I hope Madam Judge allows it and makes her decision before the weekend papers.   titter 

If it is allowed I believe we wont be seeing pics of them with smiley faces then.

Breakfast News this morning (around 7am GMT) announced the libel trial resuming today in Lisbon. An old photograph of K&G arriving at the Lisbon Court was shown and an old photo of GA (when he was heavier) was also shown.

You have to ask yourself why this was announced in the first place.

Bizarre as usual.

Yes, after a few tweets here and there during the whole trial, why is it now all over the news? I don't believe that ITV etc. didn't know it had been postponed.

Perhaps they're trying to withdraw their allegations and have the case thrown out on the basis that they've now changed their minds.

Not likely, but you never know. Can you withdraw your allegations once a libel case has begun to be heard in court in Portugal?
