From the Belfast Telegraph: today, 2 October 2013

Gerry McCann wants to give evidence in the case against Goncalo Amaral, who published a book making allegations about Madeleine's disappearance in May 2007.

The McCanns say the former detective's claims in the book The Truth Of The Lie, including suggestions that they hid their daughter's body after she died in an accident and faked an abduction, damaged the hunt for Madeleine and exacerbated her family's anguish.

If successful in the case - brought on behalf of Mr and Mrs McCann and their twins Sean and Amelie - the family stands to gain around £1 million in damages.

Mr McCann was left frustrated after flying to Portugal last week, when proceedings were adjourned because one of Mr Amaral's lawyers could not be present.

The doctor will return to the Palace of Justice in Lisbon today, when the case resumes, in the hope that he will be allowed to give evidence.

He will travel to the Portuguese capital with his sister Trish Cameron and Kate McCann's mother Susan Healy, who are both expected to appear as witnesses in the case.

Mrs McCann attended the court last month on the first day of the case where she told reporters she was in Portugal to "stop the damage" she believes was being caused to the search for her daughter.

The court has heard how she had suicidal thoughts after Mr Amaral claimed she had covered up her daughter's death.

Psychologist Alan Pike said * that after the publication of the former police chief's book in July 2008, Mrs McCann "thought about not being around anymore".

It is not thought that Mrs McCann will travel to Portugal with her husband today.

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.

Mr Amaral, the detective who initially led the inquiry into Madeleine's disappearance, was removed from the Portugese investigation in October 2007 after criticising the British police.

British detectives launched a fresh investigation into the youngster's disappearance in July this year - two years into a review of the case - and believe she could still be alive.

The Portuguese investigation into Madeleine's disappearance is official closed.

The case, in which Mr Amaral denies defamation, is expected to finish hearing evidence in November.

+++++++++++++++++++++++

* Factual note for the Belfast Telegraph:

From the Lisbon trial:

Question to Alan PIke: "Are you a psychologist?"

Answer from Alan Pike: "No".

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?"

Amelie Mcann (aged 2): "Maddie's jammies!".

This also states that Alan Pike is a psychologist.

Perish the thought that articles about the McCanns normally carry inaccurate facts!

Hi Sallypelt

Yes, I had a problem getting on the site in the afternoon, although it had been ok in the morning. I had a bit of a panic, and had paranoid thoughts about the site being shut down on the resumption of the trial today..."dark forces at work" etc. I was able to get on again late last night, where it became apparent loads of people had had the same problem, and it was nothing of the sort.

Kind regards....

The 2 women will probably be first to be called, so that shouldn't take long - hearsay.

Let's hope there's something to report about Iron Man by lunchtime.

Why can't there have been a live stream from the court room. I think it is LUDICROUS there isn't one.

Madeleine McCann father attends Lisbon libel trial

By The Associated Press 2:37 a.m.Oct. 2, 2013


LISBON, Portugal — The father of missing British girl Madeleine McCann is at a Lisbon court where he hopes to testify in the family's libel case against a former Portuguese detective.

The McCanns are seeking 1.2 million euros ($1.6 million) in damages from Goncalo Amaral, whose 2008 book alleged they were involved in their daughter's disappearance.

Amaral was part of the police investigation into Madeleine's disappearance from a vacation home in Portugal's Algarve region in 2007, days before her fourth birthday.

Gerry McCann said outside the court he would "listen to what the judge has to say and hope to be heard." He planned to speak last week but the trial was adjourned.

Portuguese police closed the case in 2008 after failing to find out what happened to Madeleine.

2nd October -  Libel trial reports and discussion *UPDATE*  Gerry McCann unable to testify, must wait for Judge decision by 10th Rtr3ficg-1-522x293


Gerry McCann has arrived in the Palace of Justice in Lisbon to give evidence against a former police chief accused of making allegations about the disappearance of his daughter.
The McCanns say former detective Goncolo Amaral is hindering the search for Madeleine after publishing a book which claimed they hid their daughter's body after faking her abduction.

Hopefully, though, like Kate Perry's song there'll be fireworks in court today.
