No 'doubt' Operation 'Strange' are, right now, 'inventing' ANOTHER very 'last lead' to 'pursue'!

NOTHING, of course, to do with the McCan'ts 'possible involvement' in Madeleine's 'disappearance', you'll understand!

MADDIE COURT BID QUASHED Maddie McCann’s parents lose court appeal to silence cop who claims they covered up daughter’s death
Goncalo Amaral had worked on the investigation to find Maddie after she disappeared in May 2007
BY GERARD COUZENS 31st January 2017, 3:30 pm

MADELEINE McCann’s parents have lost their new court appeal to silence the ex-cop who claims they covered up their daughter’s death, Portuguese media reports.

Portuguese Supreme Court judges met to resolve the couple’s fight against a lower court’s decision last April to reverse their 2015 libel win against Goncalo Amaral.

Gerry and Kate McCann, pictured in July 2014, are reported to have lost their high court bid to silence an ex-cop who claims they covered up the death of their daughter.

The hearing took place in private in Lisbon this morning.

And Portuguese newspapers also reported the country’s Supreme Court had ruled against their new bid to try to silence Amaral’s claims.
The couple could now face a huge legal bill, which had been frozen until the outcome of the final appeal.
The decision is a major milestone in Gerry and Kate McCann’s eight-year fight over a book written by Amaral, who led the initial hunt when then-three-year-old Madeleine vanished from their Algarve holiday apartment in May 2007.


Amaral was ordered to pay Kate and Gerry £430,000 plus interest in damages after losing round one of their libel battle in April 2015 over his hurtful book ‘The Truth of the Lie.’

The night Maddie was taken
Appeal judges reversed the initial ruling by a court in Lisbon in April last year, siding with the former police chief and overturning a ban on his book.

The decision sparked a fresh appeal by the McCanns to the country’s highest law court.

The McCanns’ Portuguese lawyer Isabel Duarte lodged the couple’s new appeal last May after vowing to fight the U-turn by judges over Amaral’s book.

Criticising the ruling in favour of the ex-police chief, which a friend of the McCanns said had left them “seething,” she said: “This decision was an appreciation of the law and not the facts.

“We can appeal to the Supreme Court which we will do as we have instructions from our clients.”

The judge who ruled in the McCanns’ favour in April 2015 said Amaral’s constitutional rights to freedom of speech and expression were conditioned by the fact he had been in charge of the investigation into Madeleine’s disappearance until shortly before the publication of his book.

She concluded he played on his status as a long-serving police officer to present personal opinions and claims about the high-profile case as fact.

The appeal judges said Amaral’s right to express his opinions overruled any duty of confidentiality he had as an ex-police chief heading the Madeleine McCann investigation once the case files were put into the public domain.

Amaral is understood to have earned £344,00 from his book before it was banned and a subsequent TV documentary.

He claimed in the book Madeleine had died in their holiday flat and they had faked her abduction to cover up the tragedy.

The book was released just three days after Gerry and Kate were told their status as formal suspects had been lifted on July 21 2008.

The McCanns told the Lisbon court staging the Amaral libel trial in the summer of 2014 they were left “devastated and crushed” by his allegations.

Natasha has cleaned up the translation for us:

The McCanns were denied the appeal presented by the Supreme Court against Gonçalo Amaral. The former Inspector of the Judiciary Police claimed, in his book 'Truth of the Lie', that Madeleine McCann's parents were responsible for HER disappearance in 2007, on Luz beach in the Algarve.




In April 2016, the Court of Appeal annulled the sentence taken by a lower court that forced Gonçalo Amaral to pay compensation to the couple.




The Appellate Court understood that the ex-inspector was free to express his opinion and his book could go back on sale.




Kate and Gerry McCann did not settle for the verdict at the time and said they would appeal the ruling in the Supreme Court. The appeal was filed by the lawyer at the end of May last year.




The decision of the Supreme has now been made known. According to SIC Notícias, the appeal was dismissed and the McCann couple lost the case against Gonçalo Amaral, having now no more opportunities to reverse the decision.

Supreme court rejects Mccanns’ appeal: Amaral vindicated for second time
In a case of “second time proved right” former PJ coordinator Gonçalo Amaral has seen a national court take his side in the long-running civil action taken out by the parents of Madeleine McCann.
The Supreme Court has today convened to consider the case, and is reported by SIC television news as having “dismissed it”.
This means that Supreme Court judges do not consider there are grounds to appeal against the decision given in April last year by Lisbon’s Appellate Court, and which ruled that Amaral was well within his rights of freedom of expression when he wrote the book: “Madeleine: The Truth of the Lie”.
SIC’s report claims the McCanns have now “lost the case against Gonçalo Amaral” as “there are now no further opportunities to reverse the decision” of the Appellate Court.
Whether this is in fact the truth, remains to be seen. The McCanns lawyer Isabel Duarte has intimated to British press that the couple could take the case to the European Court of Human Rights if they lost in Portugal.

marian greavesjust now

A good day for common sense and justice, the McCann's brought this action themselves and went all out to seize this mans assets so he couldn't defend himself, maybe they should sue carter ruck for giving them bad advice on persuing it without any research or evidence for their claims of how it affected them, and as for paying court costs they have always insisted they haven't used the public donations for that and their lawyers have always worked pro bono so thats good then isn't it, they didn't win so their lawyers won't charge them a fee then.
Also you have the figures wrong again the sun, Mr Amaral is only likely to have made about £90.000 euros from his book as with any book they only get a percentage of the sales.

Madeleine McCann's parents lose Supreme Court libel appeal

By Associated Press

Published: 16:27, 31 January 2017 | Updated: 16:27, 31 January 2017

LISBON, Portugal (AP) — Portugal's Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that missing British girl Madeleine McCann's parents can't sue for libel a former Portuguese detective who published a book alleging they were involved in their daughter's disappearance.

A court official told The Associated Press that Portugal's highest court ruled the allegations are protected by freedom of expression laws. Also, the judges decided his claims weren't abusive and "were within acceptable limits in an open and democratic society."

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the decision hadn't yet been published.

FILE - In this July 24, 2008 file photo, former detective Goncalo Amaral poses with his book whose title translates as "The Truth in the Lies", during its launch in Lisbon.

Portugal's Supreme Court has ruled that missing British girl Madeleine McCann's parents can't sue for libel a former Portuguese detective who published a book alleging they were involved in their daughter's disappearance. A court official told The Associated Press on Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2017 that Portugal's highest court ruled the allegations are protected by freedom of expression laws and weren't abusive.

A Lisbon court in 2015 ordered Goncalo Amaral to pay Kate and Gerry McCann 500,000 euros ($540,000) in compensation. The McCanns had sought 1.2 million euros. An appeals court last year overturned that conviction, but the McCann's lawyers turned to Portugal's top court.

Madeleine disappeared from a vacation home in Portugal's Algarve region in May 2007, days before her 4th birthday.

Amaral had argued in his defense that the claims in his 2008 book "The Truth of the Lie" stemmed from the police investigation. He also noted that Portuguese media had already reported the possibility that the parents might have played a role in Madeleine's disappearance.

Portuguese police closed the investigation after detecting no evidence of a crime, but British police are still looking into it.

Madeleine's disappearance sparked global interest as pictures of her and her grieving parents were published around the world.

Supreme court rejects Mccanns’ appeal: Amaral vindicated for second time
In a case of “second time proved right” former PJ coordinator Gonçalo Amaral has seen a national court take his side in the long-running civil action taken out by the parents of Madeleine McCann.
The Supreme Court has today convened to consider the case, and is reported by SIC television news as having “dismissed it”.
This means that Supreme Court judges do not consider there are grounds to appeal against the decision given in April last year by Lisbon’s Appellate Court, and which ruled that Amaral was well within his rights of freedom of expression when he wrote the book: “Madeleine: The Truth of the Lie”.
SIC’s report claims the McCanns have now “lost the case against Gonçalo Amaral” as “there are now no further opportunities to reverse the decision” of the Appellate Court.
Whether this is in fact the truth, remains to be seen. The McCanns lawyer Isabel Duarte has intimated to British press that the couple could take the case to the European Court of Human Rights if they lost in Portugal.
Really?
And what about Madeleine's Human Rights?

It's quite novel really. Go to the Human Rights Court to shut somebody's free  speech up.

So pleased to hear this news - justice well and truly served to someone who really deserves it. HIs brave brave stand for freedom of speech and what he believed in is a lesson to us all - I only wish I had his courage

I guess - justice does come to those brave enough to fight and wait for their day. I hope now that he can now go on and live the rest of his life without the looming threatening McCann Cloud hanging over his head.

Congratulations Goncalo - you truly deserve this victory.

Indeed, really think its "curtains" for them though on that point IMO.

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.
