Would this be an appropriate time to say "I told you so"?

Shocking, disgraceful decision - an act of cruelty against Madeleine's champion.

The actual amount awarded is being reported in varying amounts so I'm not sure what the correct figure is.

And I should have added - no amount of blood money will clear their conscience of the role they played in the disappearance of their daughter.

How a judge in Portugal has fallen for the McCanns' nonsense I really don't know.

Unbelievable.

He has a right to appeal.

Let's hope that he does. The McCanns don't deserve anything in damages.

Daily Snail is reporting £75,000. That sure buys a lot of highlights and bottles of plonk. Cannot believe that anyone can be taken in by their lies. They are the most undepressed looking people I have ever seen. Looks like justice in Portugal stinks as much as it does in the UK.

For anyone who is a member of The Maddie Case Files, it's worth reading what Astro posted.

I think we need to see the official ruling.

I am not surprised, because everything we have expected to happen since all this began in 2007 has gone the other way, always in the McCann's favour.

I am so disappointed for Amaral, but I am not surprised, I would have been surprised had he won!

There is no doubt in my mind that this case is a complete whitewash, there will never be a conclusion, they will never, ever be held to account.

That poor man and his family. Very sad news!

@CarlaSpade Other sources in PT reporting €106k figure. GA legal team have not been notified of decision. #waitandsee

Amaral's lawyer refuses to comment. As he is not aware of such ruling. #mccann

Very strange verdict, very strange way to leak it in the Press without informing Amaral's lawyers.
Suspicious.
Anyway, G.Amaral will probably appeal in Portugal and in Strasbourg where they give a very important value to the freedom of speech.
A battle lost, not the war.

@MrsWaspie Biggest red flag for me is they're reporting book banned and that's not possible, not part of this case #McCann

MrsWaspie ‏@MrsWaspie 12 mins12 minutes ago

@CarlaSpade yes. Supreme Court Judge ruling already on the book - #mccann
