Madeleine McCann: McCanns Face Courtroom Questions

MADELEINE McCann: Kate McCann is on the cover of the Sunday Times, illustrating the paper’s coverage of the Miles for Missing People charity run in Regent’s Park, central London. Well, really the paper is illustrating Kate McCann, who remains newsworthy in light of, reportedly, moves by the Sunday Times’ sister organ the Sun to serialise her book Madeleine.

Meanwhile, the Daily Star thunders:


Madeleine McCann’s parents are set to be quizzed in court later this year in connection with their daughter’s disappearance.

Who is quizzing them?

Kate and Gerry McCann, of Rothley, Leics, will face lawyers acting on behalf of the Portuguese detective who led the hunt for Madeleine.

They are suing former police chief Goncalo Amaral for more than £1million damages over claims he made about them.

As Anorak said, the courtroom fight with Amaral was fraught with dangers. Now:

Amaral, who believes Madeleine is dead, is due to call the McCanns in his bid to defend himself.

This could be interesting.

Last night the couple’s lawyer Isabel Duarte said she expects the libel trial to take place this year.

She said: “It could be June or July but most likely September. He can call them if there are things they can contribute (to his case).”

Madeleine McCann is missing. We do not know what happened to her. We do not know what if any crime befell her. There are no suspects.
