Interesting article in the Express

Well, it might have been worse! There are at least some truths, some half truths along with the usual McCann spin. But on the whole it is a slightly more positive article than some of late.

This story in The Sun seems awful at first but it does give details of the fund set up and apparently it has produced more donations there.





EXCLUSIVE: Ex-cop who lost libel case against McCanns has British backers



Exclusive by Ben PERRIN

Trolls fork out for Maddie lie cop's court bill.

BRIT trolls are helping pay the legal bills of an ex- cop who said Madeleine McCann's parents were behind her disappearance. Hundreds of donations have flooded into a sick online campaign for shamed Goncalo Amaral 56.
Today marks the eighth anniversary since Madeleine vanished from Praia da Luz, Portugal, when she was three years old.
An ex-British policeman is among those supporting the "injustice" of Amaral losing a libel case over allegations in his controversial book The Truth of the Lie.
He claimed that Maddie's parents Kate 47, and Scots- born Gerry 46 faked her abduction after she died .Amaral is set to launch a costly appeal after being ordered to pay the couple from Rothley, Leics, a total of £434,000.
Leanne Baulch, 22, of Birmingham is listed as organiser of the gofundme webpage "Legal Defence for Goncalo Amaral"- which aims to raise £25,000.
Some donors called the libel ruling in Lisbon a "perversion of justice" John Green paid £10 and wrote "I am a retired policeman and will never understand how criminal proceedings have never been taken against the McCann's .
Mary Benusis said her £50 was in memory of a Twitter troll found dead after being exposed as being behind vile social media messages about the McCann's.
Speaking after winning the six year battle with Amaral ,Kate McCann said" It was about stopping awful lies which hindered the search for Madeleine " Last night a family spokesman declined to comment.

WOW!! The Sun "outed" me. My donation was in memory of Madeleine McCann and Brenda Leyland (not in memory of a "Twitter troll" as mentioned in the article).

All things considered though, I'm glad the writer has drawn attention to the Legal Defence Fund.
