Kate and Gerry are not criticising Portugal for not running the Crimewatch show but it is rather baffling

They really don't know why they have made themselves rather unpopular in Portugal? Well, it could have something to do with not co-operating with the police, hot footing it when made arguidos, calling a police officer a f*cking t*sser, trying to ruin an ex-senior police officer. They're baffled? They can't be that unaware! Or maybe they are!

Morning AnnaEsse.....not to mention the money spent by the Police Force and judiciary.....it was over E1 million a long time ago . The damage done to the Ocean Club resulting in some staff losing their jobs, the loss of income from renting 5a . They really are an arrogant pair and running scared.
With Gerry's penchant for walking out when being asked questions he doesn't like and Kate swearing and similarly refusing to answer questions I dread to think what they will be like when questioned by Amaral's Lawyer.

They are obviously running scared but will probably do more damage in the Witness Box than outside it. When they tried to bargain with Amaral a few months ago they must have been told by Carter Ruck their case was hard to justify.........now they know it.!!!

I bet  the judge won't allow the Mccanns and G.Amaral to testify, saying that the other testimonies were enough informative for the court to take its decision.

I hope that is the case frenchperson, the Judge seems as if she will stand no nonsense ..........BUT, the Mccanns will use this tto their advantage and the Portugese will be blamed again, so maybe she will realise this and let the McCanns , with the aid of an Interpreter , nail their own coffin.

It's true Panda, but I think the juge is fed up with the McCann'circus.

Joana Morais posted on the TMCF the paper version of the Daily Express which is VERY informative, more I think, than the online one. Sorry if it has been already posted:



"Paper Edition

9 out 2013
Daily Express
From Gerard Couzens in Lisbon and David Pilditch

DRAMATIC NEW COURT CLAIMS

Now mum Kate wants to give evidence against Portuguese detectives KATE McCann is to make a dramatic bid to nail the smears which have hampered the search for her daughter Madeleine.

Brave Kate wants to defend herself in open court to silence her tormentor, detective Goncalo Amaral, over false claims she was involved in a cover- up, it was revealed yesterday.

The former GP is expected to use new evidence unearthed by Scotland Yard to kill off Portuguese police smears once and for all. British officers are set to unveil “fresh, substantive” material during a Crimewatch TV special on the case to be screened on Monday.

It comes as detectives revealed they are closer than ever to discovering what happened to Madeleine who disappeared during a family holiday in Portugal in 2007.

Kate and husband Gerry, 45, hope a targeted appeal will lead to a significant breakthrough.

And the information could shatter the claims made against Madeleine’s parents by the former police chief.

Now Kate has asked a judge for permission to address a £ 1million libel trial in Lisbon. Heart consultant Gerry had already asked permission to address the hearing as has Mr Amaral.

Kate’s application – revealed at the restart of the hearing yesterday – paves the way for an emotion- charged finale.

If given the go- ahead, the McCanns and Mr Amaral are expected to speak on the same day on or after November 27 when the last hearing in the trial at Lisbon’s Palace of Justice is scheduled.

Madeleine’s parents are convinced their daughter was abducted and insist there is no evidence to suggest she is no longer alive. She would now be 10.

Damage

Kate and Gerry are suing Mr Amaral over allegations in his book The Truth Of The Lie.

And in a day of dramatic developments, former Portuguese colleagues yesterday told the hearing that nothing Mr Amaral wrote in the book was new.

Former family liaison officer Ricardo Paiva told the court: “What is in the book is based on our investigation and contains the professional and personal opinions of Goncalo Amaral as a police officer.

“Everything that is there can be found in the case files.”

Mr Paiva insisted the book’s publication did not damage the search for Madeleine. He said: “The flow of information continued to come in regularly. Neither this book or any other book affected the flow.”

Luis Neves, head of a national police unit tasked with investigating organised crime including kidnappings, told the court it was British police who began developing the theory Madeleine had died.

Sniffer dogs brought in by an officer from the UK were said to have put a huge question mark over the theory that Madeleine was kidnapped.

He said: “Our British colleagues said there was a team made up of dogs and their handlers that could help us to find out where the child could be buried.

“It was from then on that the Algarve police division decided to allow the dogs to come and the idea of Madeleine’s death began to form and things took another direction. I know the suggestion of the dogs was not accepted lightly. We had no experience of it in Portugal and the cost was another factor.”

But retired police officer Francisco Moita Flores, now a TV commentator, attacked the on- going Metropolitan Police investigation for assuming that Madeleine was kidnapped.

“There’s a prophetic and dogmatic vision behind it,” he said. He described the Portuguese investigation as one of the “most complex and well- investigated cases” he had ever seen and called Mr Amaral “competent”.

Kate flew to Portugal for the start of the libel trial last month. But so far she has left it to friends and relatives to testify on behalf of the couple.

Yesterday Judge Maria Emilia Melo e Castro, referring to her request to make a statement, said: “The court will decide on this application once evidence has been heard by both sides as only then will I be able to judge on the need for and the pertinence of this application.”

Around 120,000 copies of the book were sold before it was withdrawn when the McCanns won an injunction against the ex- police chief.

Portuguese TV station TVI is also being sued over a documentary based on the book. Mr Amaral, 56, denies defamation. The hearing was adjourned until November 5".

I don't think any new evidence that has come to light is relevant for this trial and I doubt the judge would allow it. It has no bearing on this case at all.

Anything is possible with this Pair...but Kate is being very indiscreet and SY won't like being dragged into this and I wouldn't be surprised if she gets a rap on the knuckles for this.

Yes definately.....we can read those two neglecting sods to the extent that we know what they will do next.


Kate McCann saying she has 'new evidence' which she will reveal at the trial....if that's so, why hasn't she shown this 'new evidence' to the pj so they can reopen the case ?


I hope she gets that question asked In the court ...I think Kate McCann is relying on the women judge to have empathy with her.

She has no chance kitti, the Portugese are really p***ed off with the McCanns and this Judge will not be sympathetic towards them , especially when Kate wanted the African guy with his gizmo to search for a body.!!! Yet 6 years on she can say she is "findable", only to swell the Fund coffers of course.

Just noticed that in the previous  Daily star article, "smears" was between brackets:

"Maddie mum begs court: Let me clear my name
FURIOUS Kate McCann wants to defend herself in court against Portuguese police "smears" that she covered up daughter Madeleine's death."

frenchperson, the Press is enjoying all this and if the McCanns lose this case the theory that Madeliene died in 5a becomes acceptable.

Equally, there is no evidence to suggest she is alive, apart from some dubious sighting on some unnamed Med island.


Good one, Ricardo Paiva. He really is in GA's corner and told it exactly as it is.

IMO, the finale is the decision by the Judge. NOT their appearance at the court, the court where not long ago their solicitor was stating they were not needed because they were going to win anyway!
Its all gone t*ts up for them, hence their request!!

would not surprise me if this was all planned.  the six months for negotiating, get the crimewatch programme done, get SY on side, say they don't need to appear, then with this new "evidence" fly in at last minute, make emotional pleas in the UK press to get all on side and then go and try to blast Libel case with information from SY on new suspects. jimo.

Agree wjk.
