False evidence by the authorities to help frame Gonçalo Amaral.

The weakness of the prosecution case was clear from early on in the trial of Amaral and his colleagues.

The sequence of events leading up to the injuries sustained by Leonor Cipriano were soon established. Leonor Cipriano had apparently made her confession to the Policia Judiciara on 13 October 2004. She had then been taken to prison. What was clear was that the main injuries she suffered to her face and knees, quite probably caused by a fellow inmate, were probably sustained days afterwards, certainly no earlier than 16 October, i.e. after she made her confession to the Police. The probable date of the assault on Ms Cipriano was the date she was seen by the Consultant Prison Doctor, namely 18 October.

The Consultant Prison Doctor who was giving medical evidence to support the alleged torture of Leonor Cipriano contradicted herself on one important detail. A report written on the 18 October 2004 mentioned no lesions to the knees of Joana’s mother, who didn’t complain about any either. Yet on 29 October, she requested an X-ray to be performed on these lesions.

According to the medic, when she observed Leonor on 18 October 2004, she presented lesions on several parts of her body. She had ‘red swollen eyes’, ‘the left eye shut’, ‘minor cuts on both knees, superficial but symmetrical’. And she presented lesions to her back, to her chest and on her arms. But on 18 October the Doctor reported no ‘lesions’ on her knees.

Evidence was then heard by the court that the Prison Governor of Odemira Prison, where Ms Cipriano was being held, had ordered the Chief Prison Officer to materially alter a report about Leonor Cipriano’s health - yet, said Mr Carlos Anjos - it was a ‘stupefying fact’ that [instead of the Prison Governor being on trial] the person on trial for allegedly falsifying a document is António Cardoso, one of the four detectives.

There was a reference to Ms Cipriano having suffered injuries before she arrived at the prison. A former prison guard of Odemira prison, Ana Paula Teixeira, was heard during the trial on a videoconference link. She confirmed that Leonor Cipriano arrived at the prison with injuries, and explained, in the presence of the detectives, that she had suffered them as she fell off the stairs. However, social worker Adélia Palma explained during a later court session during the trial that Leonor Cipriano had told her that she had been assaulted during the questioning she was subject to at the Policia Judiciara and that the detectives had ‘ordered’ her to say that she fell. However, whatever these injuries might have been, the clear evidence heard by the court was that Leonor Cipriano suffered her main set of injuries on 18 October whilst she was already in prison.

One of Leonor Cipriaon’s lies in court may have been her denial that she was visited in prison by her lawyer, Mr Aragão Correia, on 30 October, during the trial. Gonçalo Amaral’s lawyer, António Cabrita, asked for Leonor Cipriano to be heard again, as he wanted to clarify what he said was ‘a lie’ either by her or from her dodgy lawyer.

Cabrita referred to an article that was published in a national newspaper, where Mr Aragão Correia admitted to having visited Ms Cipriaono in prison on the night of the 30 October, after she had been giving evidence on Day One of the trial. He had told the press that it was necessary visit her to ‘calm her down’ as she had been ‘very nervous’ following questions earlier that day from the Policia Judiciara’s lawyers.

Yet before that newspaper article appaeraed, during the second day’s session, when António Cabrita had asked Leonor Cipriano if she had received any visits at the prison, she replied that she had not.

“So someone is lying”, said Cabrita, merely stating the obvious.

A further contradiction between Leonor Capriano’s evidence and that of others occurred when the photographer who took the photographs of Ms Cipriano’s injuries in the prison reported that he was called immediately after the injuries were sustained and that he took the pictures ‘during the afternoon and with daylight’. But Ms Cipriano had claimed that the photographs had been taken ‘at night, in a room without light’.

Another official admitted that the prison had destroyed the photographs taken of Leonor’s knees because ‘the alleged injuries to her knees were not very visible’.

Given these examples of lies, contradictions and attempts to falsify documents and cover up certain matters, it was scarcely surprising that some of the four jurors asked a lot of questions of the witnesses during the trial.

One interesting statement made by Mr Aragão Correia to the court was that British Police officers had been ‘investigating’ Gonçalo Amaral. This is probably yet another fabrication by this dodgy, dishonest lawyer. It will be interesting to see if the trial judge asks him for their names, ranks, collar number and their place of employment. It would be a truly sensational revelation if it could ever be proved that any paid British security officer had actually been used in what Mr Aragão Correia was clearly suggesting was a ‘private investigator’ role, trying to get any ‘dirt’ on Amaral.

What's the source for this, John?

The Consultant Prison Doctor who was giving medical evidence to support the alleged torture of Leonor Cipriano contradicted herself on one important detail. A report written on the 18 October 2004 mentioned no lesions to the knees of Joana’s mother, who didn’t complain about any either. Yet on 29 October, she requested an X-ray to be performed on these lesions.

According to the medic, when she observed Leonor on 18 October 2004, she presented lesions on several parts of her body. She had ‘red swollen eyes’, ‘the left eye shut’, ‘minor cuts on both knees, superficial but symmetrical’. And she presented lesions to her back, to her chest and on her arms. But on 18 October the Doctor reported no ‘lesions’ on her knees.



From the court report, she was formally interviewed (with her lawyer) on 13 Oct. The PJ took her back to the prison at about 6:15 am on the 14 and picked her up again to take her back to the station, but not for "formal" interviews. Again they took her back at around 6 am on 15 Oct, but to the infirmary, where injuries to her face and eyes were noted, but the doctor didn't examine the rest of her body that day, apparently.



13 Oct - PJ picked Leonor up from Odemira prison at around 8.30 am and took her to Faro PJ station, where she was questioned by Cristóvão in the presence of her lawyer Dra. Célia Carocinho Costa.

8. No dia 13 de Outubro de 2004,no âmbito da referida investigação, a assistente Leonor Maria Domingos Cipriano foi recolhida por agentes da polícia judiciária no Estabelecimento Prisional de Odemira cerca das 8,30 horas, conduzida ás instalações da Polícia Judiciária de Faro onde, nomeadamente,
Processo no 1503/04.3TAFAR 5
foi interrogada, na presença da sua defensora Dra. Célia Carocinho Costa, pelo ora arguido Paulo António Pereira Cristóvão;



14 Oct - PJ took her back to Odemira at around 6.15 am.

9. A assistente Leonor Maria Domingos Cipriano foi conduzida pela Polícia
Judiciária e entregue no Estabelecimento Prisional de Odemira cerca das 6,15
horas da manhã do dia 14;

14 Oct - PJ picked her up again at around 8.05 am and took her back to Faro again.

10. Nesse mesmo dia 14 de Outubro de 2004, cerca das 8.05 horas, a assistente
Leonor Maria Domingos Cipriano foi de novo recolhida por agentes da Polícia Judiciária no Estabelecimento Prisional de Odemira e conduzida ás instalações da Polícia Judiciária de Faro;

14 Oct - Cristovão submits his notes (chopping up body, etc). p. 8

14 / possibly early am 15 Oct - No formal interrogation that day.
17.Não foi efectuado nenhum interrogatório (formal) á Leonor Maria Domingos Cipriano nesse dia;

15 Oct (a Friday) - Cadroso & another (unidentified) PJ officer take Leonor to Odemira prison's health centre at around 6 am (not clear but presumably time of arrival), where certain injuries were noted. She went back to prison at around 7 am.

18. Cerca das 6.00 horas da manhã do dia 15, o arguido António Fernando Nunes Cardoso e outro agente da Polícia Judiciária cuja identidade não foi possível apurar, que conduziam a Leonor Maria Domingos Cipriano ao Estabelecimento Prisional de Odemira, apresentaram-na no Centro de Saúde
Processo no 1503/04.3TAFAR 8
de Odemira onde, consultada pelo médico de serviço, este constatou que ela “apresentava edema traumático e hematomas já organizados e atingindo toda a área facial-frontal e temporal direita, edema palpebral grande, que lhe ocasiona o fecho total á direita”;

19. Não lhe foi feito então qualquer exame a outras partes do seu corpo;

20.Cerca das 7.00 horas dessa manhã, a Leonor Maria Domingos Cipriano foi
entregue no Estabelecimento Prisional de Odemira;

21. Em consequência dos actos violentos descritos supra em 12, foi infligido á Leonor Cipriano sofrimento físico, tendo resultado ainda desses actos edema traumático e hematomas atingindo toda a área facial-frontal e temporal direita, edema palpebral grande, que lhe ocasionou o fecho total do olho direito, extensas equimoses na face anterior do tórax, nos hipocôndrios, na face lateral do terço inferior de ambos os hemitórax, no flanco direito, na região lombo- sagrada e na face lateral do braço direito. Estas lesões curaram em 21 dias, sem sequelas;


15 Oct - Cardoso writes up his report of the "staircase" incident.
22. No dia 15 de Outubro de 2004 o arguido António Fernando Nunes Cardoso elaborou e subscreveu uma “informação de serviço”, dirigida ao “Sr. Director Nacional Adjunto”,

Evidence was then heard by the court that the Prison Governor of Odemira Prison, where Ms Cipriano was being held, had ordered the Chief Prison Officer to materially alter a report about Leonor Cipriano’s health -

I'd also like to know what this was about.

If Leonor had been told to say that she'd had a "staircase" incident, the prison officer could well have written that down. However, that wouldn't have been accurate as she'd apparently told a social worker that she'd been beaten. It was already on record on 15 Oct, early morning, that she had injuries to her face.

In those circumstances, what should the the prison governor have done? Allow the prison officer to submit a report concerning a "staircase" incident if there was a substantial doubt about it?

Clearly the prison Governor wasn't on duty when the Chief Prison Officer entered his report on Leonor Cipriano but wasn't happy with it when she saw it.  The evidence before the Court at Amaral's trial was that the Governor had ordered the Chief Prison Officer to materially alter a report about Leonor Cipriano’s health, not enter a false one!

Question is, what was entered first?

She had clearly been taken back from questioning at the police station by police officers to the infirmary.

It appears that Leonor Cipriano received further injuries after being returned to the prison by the PJ on the 15th October.  When examined on the 18th October her injures were much greater than those witnessed three days earlier.

Oh those would be the deep bruises coming out, John.  They can take days to come out.  When I severely injured my ankles by falling down a hole,  my bruises took a couple of weeks, and more, to fully show.



1.    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruise

Size and shape of bruises[edit]

Bruise shapes may correspond directly to the instrument of injury or be modified by additional factors. Bruises often become more prominent as time lapses, resulting in additional size and swelling.


2.  https://uk.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090110110647AAjrsWi

Why would a bruise appear 2 days later?

I got into a skiing accident about 5 days ago and fractured my arm almost in the shoulder socket. I didn't realize how bad it was and went to the doctors 2 days after it happened later that day a bruise began to appear and has gotten worse since it this ok? .

Actually that is quite normal. You see, the deeper the injury the longer it can take for a bruise to rise to the surface.



Thanks for reminding us of how long it took for the bruises to come out fully, John

So poor Leonor was beaten so hard that her deep tissues were affected.  This caused the bruises to come out over a number of days.     Bet her bruises took weeks and weeks to clear up

The BRUTES !  8()(((@#

I feel very sorry for Joana, first and foremost, as there is NO concrete evidence as to whether she is even dead or alive.

If the Belgian police had been more attentive in the Dutroux case, they might have found two little kidnapped girls still alive. Sadly, they died from starvation.
