'We'll do everything we can to get Maddie home': Kate and Gerry McCann vow to not let libel battle de-rail search for missing daughter
Couple say they will continue to fight against ruling in Portuguese Supreme Court

THE PARENTS of Madeleine McCann yesterday vowed to “do everything we can to get her home” as they told of their disappointment at losing a battle over a £434,000 libel payout.

Kate and Gerry McCann said they would continue the fight against former Portuguese police chief Goncalo Amaral who claimed they faked their daughter’s abduction.

The couple said it was never about the money, which they would have used to continue the hunt for Maddie, but the damage it has had on the nine-year worldwide search and the crushing impact on 11-year-old twins Sean and Amelie.

Amaral, who won the major legal victory on Tuesday, now intends to sue the McCanns for libel.

In a new posting on the official Find Maddie website, heart doctor Gerry, 47, and ex-GP Kate, 48, state: “We are disappointed with today’s ruling from the Portuguese Appellate Court. As we have said in the past, this action has never been about money.

“It has always been focused on the effects of the libels on our other children and the damage that has been done to the search for Madeleine.

The parents from Rothley, Leics., who face the agonising ninth anniversary of their daughter’s disappearance in less than two weeks, added: “We will continue to defend ourselves against this libel and the search for our daughter. We will be appealing to the Portuguese Supreme Court.

“Madeleine is still missing and we will do everything we can to get her home.”

The McCanns also took the time to thank their followers for their “continued support” in the update titled: “Statement from Gerry and Kate regarding libel case”.

Amaral, 57, was last year ordered to pay Kate and Gerry half a million euros in damages after he was ruled to have libelled them in his book The Truth of the Lie. But an appeal court in Lisbon overturned the ruling.

The former detective, who worked on the four-year-old's disappearance case in the opening days, claimed the McCanns "covered up Maddie's death by faking her disappearance".

He was taken off the case for criticising British police.

His book, which he made £286,000 from, is due back on the shelves in Portugal next week.

The McCanns now face a series of hefty legal bills to challenge the decision in Portugal’s Supreme Court.

Their fund was down to its last £750,000 in October, with few new cash donations coming in. The Home Office this month stepped in to provide £95,000 to maintain it for six months.

A source close to the McCanns said: “They are seething over the ruling and fear Mr Amaral may now repeat all the slurs. It just drags on and on.

“The timing couldn’t be any worse, just a few weeks away from the ninth anniversary of Madeleine’s disappearance.”

Madeleine vanished from a holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in May 2007.

I wonder how much of his fabled 'honour' would be left if the Great British Public heard the Golden Bullets tape? The media must be praying for an excuse to expose everything about Gonzo the Great.
