Barrage of negative media reports from whom against whom?

One of the parts of the CdM report that caught my eye was how well this news was received in Portugal.  94.2% very pleased.

It doesn't, which is why I asked the question about whom Misty thought was going to be on the receiving end of a barrage of negative reporting, and from whom.

As far as I can tell, the UK press are going to have to tread carefully in reporting this news accurately.

That leaves the Portuguese press.  I cannot foresee the declaration of an open hunting season, but should it occur, I would assume it would be anti-McCann.

It is more likely that Amaral will be doing another round of interviews, whilst the McCanns will say very little.
In mods I trust!

A long time ago it was reported that the UK police had investigated Amaral.
Not so long ago the Sun pulled a story headed "Maddie cop's sick secret".
It will be in the public interest to know what information about Amaral has been withheld pending the outcome of this libel trial. Freedom of speech and all that.

I am exceedingly sorry their appeal hasn't been upheld. I had hoped it would be.  However, from the little I have learned about Portuguese process ... I am not in the least surprised at the outcome.


I was running a sweepstake on who would be the first supporter to say that.

Thinking back now to the original judgement by Judge Emilia Melo e Castro, she obviously got it so very wrong.  Lets hope she undertakes some refresher courses or even retraining before she returns any more bad decisions.

If I were the McCann's I would be looking for a rebate from Dra Isabel Duarte whose advice got them into this shit in the first place.

We should be given a bit more freedom of speech on this forum too now, if Amaral's book is considered fair.

Why not as long, as the rules are obeyed.
I believe everything. And l believe nothing.
I suspect everyone. And l suspect no one.
I gather the facts, examine the clues... and before   you know it, the case is solved!"

Or maybe not -  10 years and still no solution.

The lead officer in the Madeleine McCann case will not have to pay compensation to her parents over a book he wrote about her disappearance.

The quote I picked up "On April 19, 2016, the Court of Appeal of Lisbon recognized Gonçalo Amaral the constitutional right to express his opinion and revoked the decision that forced the former PJ inspector to pay one to the English couple.


"On April 19, 2016, the Court of Appeal of Lisbon recognized Gonçalo Amaral the constitutional right to express his opinion and revoked the decision that forced the former PJ inspector to pay one to the English couple. With the decision then handed down, Relação also revoked the ban on the commercialization of the book written by Gonçalo Amaral, which appeared in the sentence of the first instance."

OK he can sell a few more copies of his book which is available free on the internet.
Sell more DVD which are already on Youtube.

No more interest payments.  OK.
