Madeleine McCann's parents win Portuguese libel case and awarded £357k
Portuguese judge orders former police detective Goncalo Amaral to pay Kate and Gerry McCann damages after libel trial over claims in his book, The Truth of the Lie

By Martin Evans, Crime Correspondent3:43PM BST 28 Apr 2015
Goncalo Amaral, the police chief who led the initial investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, has been ordered to pay her parents £357,000 in damages because of hurt caused to them following the publication of his book “The Truth of the Lie”.
The Civil Court of Lisbon also banned further sale of the book in which Mr Amaral claimed Madeleine had not been abducted, but had died in an accident in Praia da Luz.
Kate and Gerry McCann launched a libel action against Mr Amaral, who was sacked from the investigation after several months of blunders, claiming they and their family had suffered emotional and psychological harm as a result of the claims made in the book.

The McCanns - once named arguidos, or formal suspects - were finally cleared in July 2008, when the Portuguese police investigation was shelved for lack of evidence.
But the following month, Mr Amaral who was sacked from the investigation and has since left the police force, published a book accusing them of faking their daughter's abduction to cover up her death in the apartment.



Kate McCann was visibly angry and upset during the libel trial (Francisco Seco/AP)

In 2010, they won a court battle in Lisbon to ban sales of the book entitled "The truth of the Lie", a ruling that was overturned later that year.
Mr McCann, a heart specialist and Mrs McCann, a former GP, then sought damages for themselves and their twins, plus further damages for the harm caused to the search for Madeleine.
In a 36-page writ, first lodged in June 2009, they described Mr Amaral as a "self-obsessed, manipulative money-grabber" and accused him of libel and breaching their human rights.
Portuguese police closed down their investigation over Madeleine's disappearance in 2008.

But the Metropolitan Police launched their own operation three years later with Detective Chief Inspector Andy Redwood at the helm.
Scotland Yard said in December that Mr Redwood, who has now retired, was being replaced by Detective Chief Inspector Nicola Wall.

Ex-Detective To Pay McCanns £75,000 For Libel
Former detective Goncalo Amaral is ordered to pay 106,000 euros (£75,000) to Kate and Gerry McCann in libel damages.

A former Portuguese detective has been ordered to pay 106,000 euros (£75,000) to the parents of missing Madeleine McCann as their long-running libel trial comes to an end.

Goncalo Amaral was accused of making defamatory statements about Kate and Gerry McCann in a book he wrote.

The couple claimed his 2008 book The Truth Of The Lie damaged the search for their missing daughter and added to their anguish.

A civil court in Lisbon ruled against Mr Amaral, and ordered him to pay a total of 106,000 euros in damages to the McCanns.

The couple had been expected to receive around £1m.

Madeleine went missing in May 2007 from the couple's holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in the Algarve, Portugal, on 3 May 2007, as Kate and Gerry dined at a nearby restaurant with friends.

Despite a worldwide hunt, the little girl has never been found.

Last year, British and Portuguese police examined patches of ground in the resort, but had no success.

In October 2013, Mr McCann's sister Trish Cameron told the libel trial the couple's pain was "multiplied 100 times" by the book.

Just how STUPID is Mutton? rofl rofl rofl rofl

That's it, he's finished - he has to pay €€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€ to the McCann family, and no-one is going to touch his book of lies with a bargepole.

Anyone that persists in quoting his rubbish, using it as a basis for their hate campaign, is DELIBERATELY choosing to believe lies and libel.

I do believe that makes them pitchforkers - and stupid ones, at that.

Maddie case: Gonçalo Amaral ordered to compensate McCanns
28/04/2015, 15:28
At issue is the book "Maddie: The Truth of the Lie", where the former inspector of the Judicial Police questioned the abduction theory and blames parents for what happened to the child.

Gonçalo Amaral was ordered to pay 500,000 euros to the McCanns. The decision of the Civil Court of Lisbon was known on Tuesday and also prohibits the former Inspector of Judicial Police continue to sell the book on the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

According to the SIC Notícias, the court decision, taken following a procedure for damages initiated by the parents of Maddie, will also require the publisher to return the existing copies of the book Maddie: The Truth of the Lie . The Valentim de Carvalho producer, which reproduced a documentary based on the book, is also prohibited from continuing to sell copies of the film.************

http://www.cmjornal.xl.pt/cm_ao_minuto/detalhe/ex_inspetor_da_pj_goncalo_amaral_condenado_a_pagar_500_mil_euros_ao_casal_mccann.html

The former inspector of the Judicial Police (PJ) Gonçalo Amaral was ordered to pay 500,000 euros to the parents of Madeleine McCann, for damage caused by the publication of a book entitled 'Maddie: The Truth of the Lie', said Tuesday the agency Lusa the lawyer of British couple. The civil court sentenced Gonçalo Amaral "payable to each of the first [Kate McCann and McCann Gearald] the indemnity amount of 250 thousand euros plus default interest at the legal rate of interest civilians, since January 5, 2010, until full payment ". Interest for late payment, according to the lawyer of the McCanns, are located at the moment in 106,000 euros. In addition to this payment, the court also ordered the ban on the sale and new editions of the book, even prohibiting new editions of the DVD, as well as the sale of the book's copyright and DVD. This process creeps in court for more than five years, with successive postponements of trial sessions and an attempted extrajudicial settlement between the parties, which was never realized


I suspect we will have to wait for things to calm down before we get the full total for the damages, once everything including the interest has been added up, and it's been converted into sterling.

Meanwhile..... yaydance

Parents of Madeleine McCann 'WIN libel trial against Portuguese detective': Officer 'is ordered to pay the couple £75,000'
Goncalo Amaral wrote book claiming British toddler had died in accident
McCanns told court they were left 'devastated and crushed' by the book
By SIMON TOMLINSON FOR MAILONLINE

A former Portuguese detective has been ordered to pay £75,000 to Kate and Gerry McCann after a long-running libel trial, it was reported today.
Police chief Goncalo Amaral ran the initial investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann in Portugal in 2007.
He went on to write a book in which he claimed the toddler had not been abducted, but had died in an accident in Praia da Luz

The Civil Court in Lisbon ruled the book titled The Truth Of The Lie had caused hurt to the family, it was reported by Sky News.
The couple had hoped to receive around £1million.
The McCanns told the court last summer they were left 'devastated and crushed' by his book, which sold around 120,000 copies before it was withdrawn when the couple won an injunction against the ex-police chief.
Mrs McCann, 47, said Madeleine's twin siblings Sean and Amelie, now ten, knew Mr Amaral had written a book but didn't know the detail.

She told the court last July after applying to make a statement: 'I believe that's what's in Mr Amaral's book and the documentary is very distressing to adults.
'To a child, it could be very damaging.'
Asked by the judge how she felt after reading the book, she said: 'I was devastated.
'It made me feel quite desperate because of the injustice I felt towards my daughter and our family as a whole.
'It was very painful to read and I felt sad for Madeleine. I also felt anxious and fearful because of the damage I felt it was doing in Portugal.'

Idiot hounder:

Deeply saddened at reading those headlines. Doesn't tally with the earlier pronouncements from the Portuguese courts. From those I expected Amaral would have to pay something for the items found against him but nothing of that magnitude.


We TOLD them the amateur 'court reports' were not accurate reflections of events and words. Did they listen? No, of course not, and now they don't understand why this has happened.

As usual, they are gibbering sh*te about imaginary 'political interference'. Anything, rather than face the fact that they've been lied to for years, and were only too willing to believe those sick lies - what that says about them, I don't know.

We told them repeatedly they were being lied to. They've no-one but themselves to blame for not listening to warnings, choosing instead to believe Pied Pipers like Bullsh*t and co.

Now who's TOAST? rofl rofl rofl

Yes, rhodes he has.  He was more interested in other things, in fact anything except diligently doing his job.

His job was to find the child and whoever took her.  You can imagine that that was too difficult for him or he knew who did take her and was not about to tell. 

It's one or the other.  Let it be on his head now.....

And that is it in a nutshell. The disgraced, ex-cop perjurer is the original source of all the rubbish on the hate sites, the inspiration for all their hatred, abuse and disgusting speculation.

NOTHING can ever make up for the damage Gonzo has done to Madeleine McCann and her family, but at least this decision in Portugal, by a Portuguese judge, recognises the harm he has done over the past eight years.

Sez another hounder:

Even the most fervent McCann supporters were worried after reading the judge's findings

Really? I don't think so - because we KNEW the amateur 'court reports' from Guedes and co were NOT accurate. And that as soon as the judge ruled that damage had been caused by Gonzo, it was all over bar the shouting.

Madeleine McCann's parents win libel damages in trial of police chief
Gonçalo Amaral, who led investigation for missing girl in Portugal in 2007, is found guilty of libelling Gerry and Kate McCann and ordered to pay €500,000

A former Portuguese police chief has been ordered to pay the parents of Madeleine McCann €500,000 (£357,953) in libel damages after accusing them of faking their daughter’s abduction.

Gonçalo Amaral, who led the botched police search for the three-year-old in 2007, has been on trial at Lisbon’s Palace of Justice over claims he made in a book about Madeleine’s disappearance.

Gerry and Kate McCann told the trial last year of their “pain and devastation” at being accused of hiding their daughter’s body.

In a lengthy ruling on Tuesday, Amaral was found guilty of libelling the pair and ordered to pay them €250,000 each in damages. The judge also banned further sale of his book, the Truth of the Lie.

The retired officer, axed from the Madeleine investigation after several blunders, vowed earlier last year to countersue the McCanns. Writing on Facebook, he said he would launch “a lawsuit against the McCann couple and others to be compensated for enormous damage they caused me – moral, professional and financial”.

He added: “The time to judicially react to those who put my privacy, intimacy, freedom of expression and opinion and survival at stake is approaching. They have tried to assassinate me civilly. But due to the support and solidarity of all of you, they were not successful.”

Giving evidence in the libel trial last year, Kate McCann told how her son asked if she had hidden his missing sister’s body after hearing Amaral’s claims. She said she and Gerry had taken advice from a child psychologist on how to answer questions asked by Sean, nine, and his twin sister Amelie.



Kate added: “They know Mr Amaral has written a book and about the documentary. They obviously don’t know the detail. We had advice from a child psychologist. He told us to let the twins lead the conversation so if they ask a question try to answer it honestly. I believe what’s in Mr Amaral’s book and the documentary is very distressing to adults. To a child it could be very, very damaging.”

Describing the moment Sean asked her about Amaral’s claims, Kate said: “Sean asked me: ‘Mr Amaral said you hid Madeleine, didn’t he?’ It was October last year. I just said: ‘He did. He said a lot of silly things.’”

She told the judge, Maria de Melo e Castro, that Amaral’s claims were even more damaging because they could prevent potential witnesses from coming forward with information if they believed his insistence that Madeleine is dead.


The only place Gonzo is going to be 'suing' anyone is in his drunken fantasies, frankly. He's poison now - with the book and DVD both banned, he can't even slouch around on Portuguese daytime telly sofas burbling about his 'hypothesis' and making up sh*t.

Libel payout for Kate and Gerry McCann after book claims they hid Madeleine's body

Libel payout for Kate and Gerry McCann after book claims they hid Madeleine's body

Madeleine McCann

Kate and Gerry McCann are set to receive £357,000 in damages after a former police chief accused them of hiding the body of their missing daughter Madeleine.

The couple, from Rothley, took legal action after Goncalo Amaral published The Truth Of The Lie in 2008 - a defamatory view of what he thinks happened based on the investigation he led into the three-year-old's disappearance.

A Portuguese court has ordered him to pay Kate and Gerry a quarter of a million euros each in damages following a libel trial.

Mr Amaral has also been ordered to pay more than £70,000 in interest.

Madeleine went missing in the Portuguese resort of Praia da Luz in 2007 while her parents were dining with friends at a nearby restaurant.

Gerry found Madeline was missing when he returned to the family's holiday apartment to check on Madeline and the couple's two young twins.

But Mr Amaral wrote that the McCann's had hidden their daughter's body and faked an abduction after she died in an accident.

The book was a bestseller in Portugal and the McCanns were originally seeking almost £900,000 in damages from Mr Amaral, his publisher and a company that produced a documentary based on his book.

The couple claimed the book added to their anguish and discouraged people from coming forward with information after Madeleine disappeared.

The court has banned all future sales of the book and ordered the producer of the TV documentary not to sell any more copies of the film.

The former police chief will have the right to appeal.
