'DON'T SAY ANYTHING!' Kate and Gerry McCann ban their lawyer from answering questions after judges reveal they have NOT been cleared over Madeleine’s disappearance


The order comes after they lost their libel case against ex-cop Goncalo Amaral


Exclusive


BY TRACEY KANDOHLA

17th February 2017, 3:17 pm

MADELINE McCann’s parents have begged their Portuguese lawyer to keep quiet after judges ruled they weren’t in the clear over their daughter’s disappearance.

Isabel Duarte is believed to have been readying herself to comment on the failed libel battle against ex-cop Goncalo Amaral, who claims the couple faked Maddie’s abduction.

But Kate and Gerry have now reportedly ordered her to not “say anything” or respond to any media requests after the judgement was handed down last week.

Ms Duarte said today: “We received instructions from the clients not to make any declaration or give public information about the file against Mr Amaral or the case itself.”

The couple lost their nine-year civil battle against Amaral, who claimed their daughter had been accidentally killed in May 2007 and they had covered it up.

They have always vehemently denied any involvement.

The devastating blow came after judges ruled former GP Kate and heart doctor Gerry were not officially in the clear over their daughter's disappearance.

They were ruled out as “arguidos” – formal suspects - in 2008 but the country’s top court said in newly released 76-page dossier that this does not “equate to proof of innocence”.

The previously reported Supreme Court ruling said there were “serious concerns” over the theory three-year-old Maddie had been snatched from her bedroom at the Ocean Club apartment in the Algarve’s Praia da Luz nearly 10 years ago.

The comments were made in the huge dossier after Amaral, who headed the hunt for the missing girl, was handed victory.

The McCanns had insisted his 2008 Maddie book The Truth of the Lie and a TV documentary about the case had been hurtful and libellous.

Did I just read more objective reporting from Tracey Kandohla??? And the Gaspar statement included as a comment???

Their lawyer, Ms. Duarte, has said in the past that she felt abandoned by friends because she was 'acting' for the McCanns.

Few would agree with the writer's description of the McCanns as "fiercly private and rarely speak in public about Maddie". Hardly "private" when she divulged details of their sex life.....but of course that was only to raise more money for the "search".

I wonder if "Don't say anything" was meant to include "Don't say anything about being told not to say anything"!! Silence would have been far less noticeable.

From the DM article (same topic) - The couple "have previously gone to extraordinary lengths to stop people close to them talking AND EVEN PREVENTED SOME BRITISH NEWSPAPERS FROM REPORTING CERTAIN DETAILS ABOUT THE MADDIE MYSTERY".

"Their latest order to their lawyer may signal the end of their legal fight against Mr. Amaral with no anticipation of them challenging the ruling in the European Court of Human Rights."

Still there!! The comments are brutal. The media must be aware of something coming up - SY winding down or the tenth anniversary approaching, but surely "something".

"Don't say anything" - is that something like the super injunctions celebrities obtain when they want to keep an embarrassing story under wraps.

Apparently papers can be sued now for moderating so should/have to let anyone say what they want
Doesn't apply to the DM, of course, as they never seem to publish my comments...
