Moral Guilt
Detractors of the work of our British Police in bringing criminals to justice generally ignore the important distinction between moral proof and legal evidence of guilt. In not a few cases that are popularly classed with 'unsolved mysteries of crime,' the offender is known, but evidence is wanting. If, for example, in- a recent murder case of special notoriety and interest,* certain human remains had not been found in a cellar, a great crime would have been catalogued among `Police failures'; and yet, even without the evidence which sent the murderer to the gallows, the moral proof of his guilt would have been full and clear.

An interesting question has arisen elsewhere.  Do members think the Kate & Gerry McCann v Amaral & Others libel case would have had a different outcome if pecuniary damages in the sum of €1.2 millioon hadn't been sought?

Interesting question...

I don’t know, however IMO the size of the initial award virtually guaranteed an appeal.

Yet no objection to mistaken saying that supporters fawn at the McCanns and look on them as dieties.
I found that personally insulting and reported it as such and responded to her post indicating my feeling that her post was goading and insulting but yet the the post remains?
Amaral, making money from a disappeared child, and clearly without a clue.

Maybe John will do the deed later.   To me saying "saying that supporters fawn at the McCanns and look on them as deities" is slightly over my head to work out whether it breaks any rules.

The 1.2 Million was made up of 5 separate claims. Three were rejected by the first judge because the claimants were unable to prove them, not because of the amount claimed.

You may have noticed faith tried to lecture me insisting that Brexit might affect the McCann's appeal to the, ECHR..... not realising that this, would, have no effect at, all as, the case, was, against portugal...
