Just seen the interview on Sky, do we know who the middle aged guy travelling with them is?  I am guessing an extradition lawyer of some sort, not seen him before.

IF he was he's a fcuking hypocrite, because he has been seen on at least two 'public' occasions NOT wearing one.

I don't quite understand the need for victim impact statements in a civil case. Surely the case is to establish if they actually are victims? As it stands it is only themselves making that claim.

I think that's probably just the journalist trying to explain what's happening in a Portuguese civil case when they only have a limited understanding of English criminal procedures

Kate and Gerry McCann return to Portugal to deliver personal statements at libel trial against former police chief

They were prevented from giving statements last month after trial adjourned
Goncalo Amaral is accused of making false allegations about the couple
His book suggested they hid their daughter's body after an accident

Kate and Gerry McCann are back in Portugal today for the latest hearing in their ongoing libel trial against a former police chief.

The couple hope they will be able to deliver personal statements to the trial at Lisbon's Palace of Justice after they were thwarted last month when the case was adjourned.

Mr and Mrs McCann previously criticised former Portuguese police chief Goncalo Amaral for what they claimed was a 'blatant and cynical' attempt to hold up the trial after he removed powers from his lawyer on the morning they were due to make statements about the effect allegations in his book had had on them.

The couple had travelled to Lisbon on what was due to be the last day of the long-running trial over Mr Amaral's book The Truth Of The Lie, but the case was adjourned in the wake of the former detective's application.

After the hearing they spoke of their anger, accusing him of trying to wear them down and delaying justice for their missing daughter.

Madeleine, who was then nearly four, 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 restaurant with friends.

The McCanns are suing for libel over claims made in Mr Amaral's 2008 book, including suggestions that they hid Madeleine's body after she died in an accident and faked an abduction.

They say the allegations damaged the hunt for their daughter and exacerbated their anguish.

If successful, the family stand to gain around £1million in damages. A judgment is not expected in the trial until later this year.

The couple's latest visit to Portugal comes after Scotland Yard detectives last week returned to the country to help interview suspects in the case.

Officers from the force's Operation Grange joined their Portuguese counterparts in Faro last week as they interviewed people of interest in relation to Madeleine's disappearance in 2007.

The suspects were believed to include three workers from the Ocean Club in Praia da Luz who have been linked to a string of burglaries in the area before Madeleine's disappearance.

The return of British detectives came after they joined their Portuguese counterparts last month in searches of three areas of land near to where Madeleine went missing.

After the searches, police said it was the 'first phase of this major investigation which has been agreed with the Portuguese' but that there was 'still a substantial amount of work yet to be completed in the coming weeks and months'.

Mr and Mrs McCann previously said that the fact police found no evidence relating to their missing daughter had reinforced their belief that she could still be alive.

There are two admins from the JFM Facebook group in court apparently and one of them has passed on the same message above.

I'm sure it will be a heartfelt speech with a shaky wavering voice.

I hope there's a cardiologist in the court for when she histrionically 'collapses'.

Still better to happen in a court room than on an easyjet, i suppose.

WOOHOO! TB's Madeleine Foundation gets a mention from Brunty!

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
