Yes kitti, the McCanns being told they can't give evidence at the Trial was probably the first time they have been refused anything . I wouldn't be surprised if all the Press is represented at the Trial , they smell blood.

Gerry McCann frustrated after libel trial is suddenly postponed
The father of missing Madeleine McCann has expressed his determination to give evidence at the libel trial of the police officer in charge of the case, after the hearing was unexpectedly postponed.
The disgraced Portuguese detective accused of hampering the search for Madeleine McCann sought to ban media from the court room as a libel case against him got underway.

Gerry McCann, 45, travelled to Lisbon with his sister Trish Cameron, in the hope of appearing as a witness in the case of Goncalo Amaral, the shamed detective they are suing for £1 million.
But as he arrived at the courthouse in the Portuguese capital, Mr McCann was informed that the hearing had been adjourned because one of the lawyers’ grown up children was unwell.
Mr McCann and his wife Kate launched a libel action against Mr Amaral over his book, The Truth of the Lie, in which he alleged they were involved in their daughter’s disappearance in May 2007.
Portuguese law used to prevent the plaintiffs or claimants from giving evidence in such hearings, but a recent ruling overturned that ban.
Mr McCann said despite the sudden postponement of the hearing he was determined to return and give evidence in the case.

He said: “If I get the opportunity to be heard I will come back. The law has changed and Kate and I know better than anybody what we have gone through, the facts of the files and the damage that has been caused to the search for Madeleine.”
The decision to suddenly postpone the hearing is the latest frustration for the McCann family, who believe Mr Amaral’s book badly damaged the international search for their daughter.
Previously Mrs Cameron and Mrs McCann’s mother, Susan Healy, had travelled to Portugal in the hope of giving evidence, only to be turned away when the Judge Maria Emilia Melo e Catro called off the trial citing “personal reasons”.
Madeleine disappeared from an apartment in Praia da Luz shortly before her fourth birthday in May, 2007
The former police officer’s lawyer, Vitor Santos de Oliveira, applied to halt the hearing on Thursday night, telling the court his son was in hospital.
He said: “My son is having an operation. I hope that because of this you won’t be making a hullabaloo saying that Gonçalo Amaral is holding things up.”
Isabel Duarte, the lawyer who is representing the McCann family said: “It’s not surreal, it’s Portugal.”
“I saw the request to adjourn this morning. The facts are that we have organised the trial and the lawyer was actually here, so I was expecting the trial today. I asked the judge to at least hear my witness.”
Mr Amaral’s controversial book was published in July 2008 claiming that Madeleine had died in an accident and her parents had hidden her body before faking her abduction.
The couple are suing Mr Amaral, his publishers and associated documentary makers for £1 million.
The trial is scheduled to sit again next Tuesday.

That's rich coming from Gerry "I want our twins to lead normal lives" Their World has turned upside down since their Sister went missing.:-

Constantly seeing her face on the front page of Newspapers, their Parents swanning off to various Countries to promote a book their Mother has written on the pretext that she wants them to read it when they are older, not to make money you understand cough, cough, . seeing their Parents interviewed on TV. , being questioned by their schoolmates inevitably .

There was harm done to the search for MM and it was done by them - they had a chance to answer questions and reconstruct the night and come clean but refused to do so in case it wasn't helpful.

Too late to sing now Gerry, we've all heard you and the missus' version of the truth including the fact that the Smith efit would not be productive to display, since it looked like you.

You had a chance to deal in truth vs spin and you picked spin every time. The Judges are quite capable to determine if the damage was done by Amaral's book and if so if it was based on lies.

He can go and give his statement to the press I suppose. They will like that just as much.

Hi fuzeta, this is the online Telegraph and yes, it is a compilation on one page obviously dedicated to Madeleine I assumed.
