what now

Post  cass on Mon 16 Sep - 11:12

ok im thinking out load - this case is a civil matter between the mcanns and ga - but along side we have the sy review - what does this case mean - the outcome

1 say that the mcanns dont get sod all from ga and ga wins ? does that mean that portugal and sy MUST move forward and reopen the case and or interview them all again - because there will be a lot of pressure choose what the outcome - i never thought it would go ahead tbh - thought the powers of higher up in portugal and uk would stop it all - and tell the mcanns to stfu go away

If GA wins - as he should - then it puts the SY investigation into a precarious position should they be doing a whitewash.

That's too big an anamoly to explain, the two main countries investigating and coming to completely different conclusions....

I think it was important for the McCanns that Scotland Yard went ahead with their enquiries - telling the world that Madeleine could be alive was vital. One may suspect that the SY announcement was orchestrated with timing in mind, and one may suspect that the delay earlier 'to allow for an agreement to be reached' was similarly tactical.

If the McCanns win this case outright then nothing much changes in the SY enquiry. I'm sure that the police aren't going to be influenced by the outcome of a foreign civil action. Indedd this particular action doesn't appaer to hinge upon Sr Amaral's book being false or true, but maybe I have m,isunderstood that part.

But if Mr Amaral is vindicated - even bearing in mind that the case doesn't look likely to prove his theopry (or the McCanns' version) one way or the other, it will have huge effects on the way the story unfolds.

An Amaral victory will highlight the fact that it's not his first court win over the McCanns, and it will most definitely make a lot of people sit up and take notice. Good hearted souls who have supported the McCanns throughout will be turning their back on the hapless doctors and their chums, and more to the point politicians will take note too. Our elected leaders always keep a weather eye on the next election, and will be less likely to steer the forces of law & order in this country away from public opinion.

So there's everything at stake for both sides.

I was wondering too about the implications of the outcome.  I know somebody might be the tidy sum of £1.2m better off and somebody else might be £1.2m poorer.  But apart from that small detail!  I remember at one of the other cases a SY officer called by Goncalo Ammaral wasn't allowed to give evidence because the case was ongoing and this was before the review.  So presumably the McCanns couldn't call any police officers.

You're right it's a civil case, l forgot that, but if l can make that mistake so will others less interested in the case....

I'm just wondering if political interference of some kind will rear it's ugly head quietly in the background yet again.

All things considered, I think most of us are decidedly ill at ease regarding this possibility, mara thon!

No matter what the outcome, there will be appeals and this could last a long time.

As for compensation, just because the McCanns asked for £ 1m doesn't mean that they will be awarded that amount if by chance they win.

gas book ban was over turned that gives me faith that the mcanns will get sweet nothing - if so that says that the judges that uplifted the ban was wrong - will the mcanns go after them - or anyone that makes any referance from the book ? i think if they loose the press will turn without being afraid - the circus started and it will end soon

I think there's a strong possibility.

Will the super injunctions still be in place if GA wins the libel case, I can't see how the papers will run riot if their hands are still tied
I hope not, I pray the day the papers turn on these two scum bags! Their greed knows no bounds!

We don't know if there are super injunctions are in place do we? Usually they get spoken about being in place, but nothing in this case.

This is just a thought, but should GA win do the McCann's have sufficient funds to launch an appeal. At what point do they need to finance an appeal?

I can't see it happening. The mccanns are new money and mere plebs to tories. What little bridge they had was burnt when the arrogance of Gerry attempted to embarrass Cameron publicly during the hacked off campaign.

Sorry, but I can't remember the next dates of the libel trial. Can anyone help me out? I know the last one is some time in November but there are at least two days before that. My fault - I should have written them down somewhere.

As far as I know it's 26th and 27th September with a verdict expected on 5th November. Let's hope that some well-deserving people get rockets up their nether regions!

WHEN Dr Amaral wins this one - not if - I wouldn't be at all surprised if somebody agrees to publish his book in English. And then it's game over for the McCanns.

But there can't be much of it left kitti. What will they do when it finally runs out? Heaven forbid, Kate might actually have to go out and get a job!

After they have paid mr amarals TWO legal fees.....the book being overturned they have yet to pay PLUS their own fees...NO there won't be much left.


But no way will they go down without a fight regarding the book ....they will get the money from celebs or from whoever is protecting them.
