Leonor’s trial may be repeated

Post  pm on Mon 13 Jul - 21:41

The court of Portimão has accepted the appeal for extraordinary revision of the ruling that condemned Leonor Cipriano to 16 years in prison over the death of her daughter, Joana. At a limit, the trial may be annulled and carried out again.

Leonor Cipriano’s lawyer, Marcos Aragão Correia, justified the appeal with the existence of new facts that raise “serious doubts about the justice of the condemnation”, as determined by the Penal Process Code.

One of these facts is the alleged confession that was signed, last May, by Leonor’s brother – João, who has also been condemned to 16 years in prison over Joana’s death – according to which he admitted to having tried to sell the little girl. Joana disappeared on the 12th of September of 2004, from the village of Figueira. Her body was never found.

Earlier, in January, Leonor Cipriano had also denied her involvement in her daughter’s death. According to that version, it would have been João Cipriano who killed Joana, after a failed attempt to sell her.

On the other hand, the lawyer also thinks the fact that it was proved in court that Leonor was aggressed in the Polícia Judiciária’s building in Faro and forced to confess the crime is fundamental for the re-appreciation of the case.

Five PJ inspectors and former inspectors, including Gonçalo Amaral, who became known after heading the investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, were tried, but it was not proved who was responsible for the aggressions against Leonor Cipriano. Three of them were acquitted from the accusation of torture. Gonçalo Amaral was condemned to one and a half year in prison with a suspended sentence for false deposition.

Meanwhile, the Public Ministry has accused the former PJ coordinator again, but this time over co-authorship of torture. According to the accusation, the victim was Leandro Silva, Leonor Cipriano’s partner. The case has allegedly taken place at the PJ in Portimão, during questioning, within the Joana case investigation.

After the favourable decision by the court of Portimão, the case now rises to the Supreme Court of Justice, which may determine the annulation of the first trial and order a new one for the “new facts” to be appreciated”.

Eds you need to read what these killers did to her daughter Joana:

http://missingmadeleine.forumotion.net/main-maddie-thread-latest-news-f1/supreme-court-of-justice-joana-case-ruling-t3705.htm

These are the 2 who took Amaral to court for the beating...

Now they want a retrial to get out of jail!

Her lawyer is the one who went to find Maddie in the dam and then he ended up defending these 2 sickos! So who is paying for this do you think?

The Maddie fund!
