According to reports an hour ago from The Sun newspaper's in house McCann loving journo, Tracey Kandohla - Kate and Gerry McCann have called time on their malicious hounding of ex PJ inspector - Goncalo Amaral.
The McCanns had promised that they would fight the decision by the Supreme Court in Lisbon, who after a series of lengthy court cases, ruled in favour of Snr, Amaral's right to sell his book, and documentary, that described the investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.
The McCanns had claimed that they planned to take up the case with the European Court of Human Rights. Something we discussed earlier this year:
As predicted by Laid Bare, the McCanns have now finally decided admit defeat, in what many described as a desperate bid to silence the truth.
According to quotes in The Sun:
"Pals of Kate and Gerry have said Goncalo Amaral 'has won once and for all' because they don’t have the 'time, energy or funding” to take him to the highest court in the land."
The report then quotes the family friend as finally admitting that:
“Realistically a European Court appeal was never going to succeed plus it would be too expensive to launch. It seems Mr Amaral, regrettably, has won once and for all. The fight is finally over."
It would seem all that remains to be settled now, is for the McCanns to pay Goncalo Amaral's legal expenses, as per the order from the Supreme Court.
What this means, if correct (The Sun, and Kandohla not being the being the most reliable of sources), is that now the McCanns have ceased with their obsessive gambling of cash - from the fund many thought would be used to find Madeleine, Goncalo Amaral is free to sell his book wherever he chooses, and in any language he feels he wishes to.
We sincerely hope to see English versions adorning the bookshelves of our homes here in the UK very soon, as well as a more polished, and UK friendly documentary.
