I just hope that the judge asks Kate and Gerry pertinent questions as she did their witnesses.

McCanns fearful of going to Portugal because Dr Amaral still has a citizen's power of arrest ?
Portugal
WIKI
According to the Portuguese Code of Criminal Procedure (article 255), any person may arrest someone in the act of committing a crime or fleeing from the crime scene if the crime they were committing is punishable with a prison term of any length. The arrested person must be handed over to the police immediately after it is possible to do so.

He is cute...

No watches
No phones

Just like the T9 - he can play that game

IMO
I am certain he does use email and phone (microwave, sat nav, ipod, i phone, and any other gadget going beggin) it's just that he is not giving it out to all and sundry - and who can blame him? he aint risking being bugged.....

Kate and Gerry McCann Risk Fresh Libel Trial Delay Because Goncalo Amaral Lawyer 'Doesn't Use Email or Phone'
By  Dominic Gover                                                                                                             
July 7, 2014


  •  

Kate and Gerry McCann are fearful about going to Lisbon for a libel trial because of more bizarre behaviour from Goncalo Amaral His lawyers choice to communicate via email or phone or not can hardly be labelled as "behaviour" of GA. A silly assertion. Also, it may be that he uses emails and phones all the time but has made the choice not to communicate with the McCanns in this way. It's his perogative.

The parents of missing Madeleine McCann fear yet more heartache when they arrive in Portugal tomorrow (Tuesday) for the often-adjourned case.
The last time they went to Lisbon the proceedings were postponed at the last minute when Amaral dismissed his lawyer inside the court, leaving Kate and Gerry fuming outside Nothing newsworthy about this pair fuming, seems to be their normal mindset. But they remain hopeful of winning the defamation case against Amaral over his claim in a banned book that Madeleine died in an accident Which is ridiculous since the latest SY developments are clearly based on Madeleine being deceased in 2007 and they subsequently hid the body Based on the transcripts from the court, the McCann witnesses said NOTHING AT ALL of any substance, even the Judge was too underwhelmed to allow Kates mother to speak.

Amaral's unorthodox tactics in his defence have not stopped, with Madeleine's family being told his new lawyer cannot be contacted because he doesn't use 'phone or email.' Given Gerry's starring role at the Leveson enquiry, he should be delighted that emails and phone calls are not made, there is no chance of hacking. And it is unnecessary to speak to Goncalo's lawyer as it is the closing of the case tomorrow. What on earth would Goncalo's lawyer wish to speak to them about?

Being unable to contact the other party hampers efforts to prepare for the case.Bit late to leave any "preparations" till the closing day, is it not?

A source close to Madeleine's parents said: "Kate and Gerry have been told Mr Amaral has appointed a new lawyer but he doesn't use email or phone. How he can operate like this in the modern era is beyond belief.

"They wouldn't be surprised if Mr Amaral pulls another stunt to try and stall the case yet again."
Despite the risk of being stood up in court again, the McCanns do intend to travel to Lisbon for the hearing on Tuesday.

Family spokesman Clarence Mitchell added: "Kate and Gerry are planning to attend court on Tuesday as required by the judge.
"They believe they have a very strong case against Mr Amaral and they expect to win their claim."There is nothing that has been said throughout the whole duration of this case from the McCanns that gives even a hint of this being the case. Team McCanns efforts were embarrassing to say the very least. Mitchel is an arse.
The McCanns are suing Amaral for libel over his book 'The Truth of the Lie,' which is banned from publication in Britain because of its incendiary claim that Kate and Gerry know what happened to Madeleine.

Clarence dear, if you or any of your lackies is reading this, you are sounding even sillier than ever. Do give it a rest.

Off topic, but I just have to say that people from the UK really do have some of the best ripostes as evidenced here by posters comments. My dad has the gift of the gab, inherited from his parents, I recall, before our rand took a sharp nosedive, attending many a comedy evening featuring comedians from the UK.  big grin

Well, quite. Takes one to know one, and all that. To say nothing of a professional man, a doctor, taking his family abroad without the protection of a credit card.

Plain speak.

One or other 'residents' at Rothley Towers.

"you fcuking told me GCHQ could and would intercept ANYTHING that 'muncher' would be saying or planning"


" How he can operate like this in the modern era is beyond belief "

Yes, well it is all very well to publicly criticise the way a man chooses to do his job and claim it is beyond belief in this modern era  - but,imo ,it is far worse and yes, totally beyond belief, that the Mccann's claimed they operated as responsible parents...

If Amaral is satisfied that he is being properly represented, that is the end of it, and Kate and Gerry's opinions are an irrelevance.

If they don't, the judge may decide that they've had their chance to make statements in court and - OK, not important I know - they'll lose their £1M prize. Perish the thought.
Under such circumstances, I would hope that they still have to fork out to pay for GA's lawyers, after all, they forced this issue. If they lose, GA should, by rights, counter-sue for everything they have brought upon him, but I doubt he would. Too decent. I have a bad feeling the McCanns are going to win this though!

Contacting Lawyers....

Post by SchrodingersBody on 07.07.14 21:25

I might be speaking out of total ignorance of the Legal system in general, and especially the Portugese system here, my experience of it is limited at best.

Why does a prosecution Lawyer need to contact a defence lawyer at all, never mind after all the evidence is presented? What possible legitimate reason is there. I thought that broadly speaking the prosecution had to lay their case out (or at very least give the evidence/witnesses they intend to use, to the court), and the defence lawyer was able to be as sneaky as they liked, aren't "clever tricks" the very domain of the defence lawyer, or at the very least he's perfectly allowed to keep his strategy hidden. Or is that just criminal cases, or am I educated by TV drama and clueless ?

The burden of proof is on the litigants. I'm sure having spent years as a policeman, he's enjoying being able to do the winding up, rather than being wound up.

This smacks to me of the bullying tactic (sueing in the first place) failing, and now we get them switching tack and playing the victim, ooh poor you having to catch flights to chase a million quid, and all because the defence team are doing what defence teams do !
