Sorry to be a pain but her name is Isabel not Isobel. Yes, she is probably sick of the whole thing by now with the whiny couple demanding to testify.

And yet early on they set up the Limited Company 'Fund' to search for an alive, findable child ...

I love the humour of this juge:

"She waved the book in her hand as she demanded to know from Ricardo Paiva: 'The back cover says it contains exclusive revelations.


'What's new in the book that's not in the police files?'


Told by Mr Paiva, 'Nothing', she replied: 'Ok, so then I have to conclude this is misleading advertising."

*#mccann The last witness today was Moita Flores.
He read the book but did not see the documentary.
He has 18 years of experience as an investigator for the PJ, homicide division, and is a teacher in criminal investigation.
He says that all theories are valid, except for one: an abduction through that window is completely impossible.
He thinks the investigation made a fundamental mistake because it started only with the abduction theory.
The classics teach that first one must look at who had access to the apartment. Solutions to crimes are usually the most simple ones.
He was perplexed by the shelving of the investigation, as all of the contradictions between the parents and the friends had not been thoroughly investigated.

Gonçalo Amaral's book “contained nothing new, nothing that it wasn't published before”

Gonçalo Amaral's book edition post McCann injunction, 'No axe can cut the roots of freedom,
the Portuguese are going to read the forbidden book'

Here's what usually happens when books are banned. (Both quotes from Wikipedia).

Main article: R v Penguin Books Ltd.

When the full unexpurgated edition was published by Penguin Books in Britain in 1960, the trial of Penguin under the Obscene Publications Act 1959 was a major public event and a test of the new obscenity law. The 1959 act (introduced by Roy Jenkins) had made it possible for publishers to escape conviction if they could show that a work was of literary merit. One of the objections was to the frequent use of the word "fuck" and its derivatives. Another objection involves the use of the word "cunt".

Various academic critics and experts of diverse kinds, including E. M. Forster, Helen Gardner, Richard Hoggart, Raymond Williams and Norman St John-Stevas, were called as witnesses, and the verdict, delivered on 2 November 1960, was "not guilty". This resulted in a far greater degree of freedom for publishing explicit material in the United Kingdom. The prosecution was ridiculed for being out of touch with changing social norms when the chief prosecutor, Mervyn Griffith-Jones, asked if it were the kind of book "you would wish your wife or servants to read".

The Penguin second edition, published in 1961, contains a publisher's dedication, which reads: "For having published this book, Penguin Books were prosecuted under the Obscene Publications Act, 1959 at the Old Bailey in London from 20 October to 2 November 1960. This edition is therefore dedicated to the twelve jurors, three women and nine men, who returned a verdict of 'Not Guilty' and thus made D. H. Lawrence's last novel available for the first time to the public in the United Kingdom."

In 2006, the trial was dramatised by BBC Wales as The Chatterley Affair.
Spycatcher: The Candid Autobiography of a Senior Intelligence Officer (also Spycatcher), is a book written by Peter Wright, former MI5 officer and Assistant Director, and co-author Paul Greengrass. It was published first in Australia. Its allegations proved scandalous on publication, but more so because the British Government attempted to ban it, ensuring its profit and notoriety.

Pressures on the court...
10 October 2013 | Posted by Joana Morais

Over the last few days, we have watched yet another attempt at misinformation and intoxication of public opinion, which does not surprise anymore. The surprise, if it can be called that way, is the reaction of the Portuguese press which seems to be unable to see the main motivation of this campaign and turn that into the real news. The ongoing publicity campaign has the main purpose of putting pressure on the Portuguese court that has to decide. What is at stake is the independence of Portuguese courts to decide objectively, in a free manner and founded on the law. The Portuguese press in general has not yet understood, or didn't want to understand what is at stake, but the common citizen, who can think on his own and with good sense, is still alert and has already understood what is happening.

Gonçalo Amaral, October 10, 2013

I remember getting a copy of Spycatcher from a friend in America, couldn't wait to get it. It was the most turgid pile of shite ever, but it became a best seller for the simple reason it was banned!! Look at Frankie goes to Hollywood single, when it was banned, it shot to the top of the charts!!
