Madeleine McCann's dad Gerry to face former Portuguese police chief in court in libel trial 



Gerry McCann will tomorrow come face to face with the Portuguese police chief who accused him and wife Kate of covering up their daughter’s death.
The heart specialist is hoping to give evidence in the couple’s explosive £1m libel trial against shamed cop Goncalo Amaral.


[snipped]

Gerry, 45, has submitted a request to be heard as a witness to a court in Lisbon hearing the case.
Judge Maria Emilia Melo e Castro must approve the request before the trial restarts tomorrow morning.

Gerry’s sister Trish Cameron has been confirmed as a witness.

Kate, 45, attended the start of the case a fortnight ago with relatives including her mum Susan Healy and cousin Michael Corner.

But her plans to give evidence were scuppered when the judge failed to rule on whether she could take the witness stand.

Gerry’s decision to apply to give evidence is thought to be related to her frustrated hopes of speaking at the hearing.

It is believed a recent change in the law in Portugal now allow complainants in civil cases to give evidence.

If allowed to give evidence, Gerry is expected to tell the court how Mr Amaral’s claims hindered the ongoing search for Madeleine.

He can turn up, but AFAIR, he`s not on the list of witnesses.

Ah .... but I bet some manipulation of rules will be allowed in this special case, for this special man.

Blimey, they really are pushing the boundaries, aren't they?  And these people get paid ££££ for making up stories as they go along?  Good grief, a classroom full of infants could come up with a story better than that for a few packet of smarties.  smilie

Maybe the judge failed to rule because the request was never made. Wonder if the judge could be made aware of this latest claim by TM?

What's happened to Sue Healy and Trish Cameron's evidence?

Why would the judge scupper her chances of giving evidence?

Surely there solicitor knows?

Can't wait to hear how Mr. A's claims hindered the search for Maddie.

All reeks of a desperate stitch-up spin job for sympathy votes and anti Portuguese justice system.
The only thing that amazes me is that either the British media or their sheep still go along with all this b******s.

Was it her frustrated hopes that kept her away from the hearing last week then? She still could have sat and listened in the court.

So maybe, just maybe the suicide stories didn't get as much sympathy as it might have been thought it would get? No rioting in the streets last week, so Iron Man HOPEFULLY wheeled out?

Why would the judge fail to rule, she either said yes or no surely?  
 If there was for example a late application for Kate McCann (or Gerry McCann) to give evidence, a judge could well say something like: "I'm not going to rule on this now, but I may consider a further application at a later stage in the proceedings (depending on how the evidence goes)". Sometimes, also, a witness can be recalled, if the court thinks s/he may have something to add.

As a general rule in the British courts - and no doubt in most other well-run judicial systems - a witness must tender their evidence well in advance and in writing. To allow last-minute witnesses would clearly prejudice the other side.  

In general also, it is more likely that a defendant would be allowed to introduce extra witnesses at the last minute than a claimant/plaintiff.  

What I can't understand so far is why, given the claim that both of the McCanns are suffering from the most serious and permanent depressions, with eating disorders and insomnia, indefinable fear and other such severe emotional conditions detailed in the libel writ...why we haven't yet heard from the McCanns' G.P. nor a Consultant in Depressive Disorders or a Consultant Psychiatrist.

Dr Martin Roberts: "The evidence is that these are the pjyamas Madeleine wore on holiday in Praia da Luz. They were photographed and the photo handed to a press agency, who released it on 8 May, as the search for Madeleine continued. The McCanns held up these same pyjamas at two press conferences on 5 & 7June 2007. How could Madeleine have been abducted?"
