#McCann's : #LibelReform - Million Dollar Baby Claim

One does not need to be a hot shot lawyer to see where Gonçalo Amaral's lawyer is going with his media coverage and why the McCanns are spinning like a court of law they claim.

 £215,000 each for emotional distress

They say they suffer 'permanent anxiety, insomnia, lack of appetite, irritability and an indefinable fear'.

The writ also says Kate McCann is 'steeped in a deep and serious depression'.

HOWEVER, we have all been reminded today and Amaral's lawyer will question the McCanns (if they show) why they refused to carry out the reconstruction and when given the opportunity for the case to remain open they let the time pass... why the above symptons were not felt for their daughter from the moment she disappeared.....surely these feelings would have been more appropriate at the loss of their daughter to a paedophile than a book written by his client. AND more importantly why are they accusing his client of stopping the search for their daughter when they themselves have obstructed the investigation every step of the way ?


This diligence was not carried out because – it should be recalled – the McCann couple and six of their friends refused to participate. “The British authorities’ interest values all of the work that was developed by the Portuguese police and questions the reason for a hasty and abrupt archiving. The material truth still has to be established”,
