Goncalo Amaral was ordered to pay damages of €250,000 to each of the McCanns, a total of £358,000, after they sued following the publication of his book The Truth of the Lie.
The court also ordered sales of the book to be halted.

Yeah would like to see this also.

Can it not be copied and pasted....

I'm really sorry but I can't without permission and she isn't online at the moment.  It's worth reading Jon Tait's tweets though

Well 250 + 250 doesn't make 358??? Unless they're chopping and changing from Euros to pounds

No, none of this makes sense right now and as all the figures are different, I'll wait for the official version

@jontait42 @CarlaSpade So how does the media get hold of the story before Amaral's legal team is even notified? Team #McCann ???

The Euro rate as of today is 0.72 so a quick calculation is £360.000. Please don't let this be correct.

Plus 106 thousand euros in damages over £70,000, so nearly half a million I think.

Amaral's lawyer refuses to comment. As he is not aware of such ruling. #mccann

To the bolded. I thought both parties would be informed of the decision before it being made public?

I will refrain from exploding until I read a statement by GA.

Well the news has prompted loads of people to donate to Goncalo`s fund, so it`s helped him in a way.

Here it is for anyone who wants to donate. http://pjga.blogspot.co.uk/

I would say £360.00+£54.000, so if correct £414.000.

I was just about to post a similar message, you beat me to it.  Smile

I think I remember reading a while back that Brunty had had his emails hacked, or am I imagininginging it, oops, been at the wine as well.  The stress is getting to me too.

If true this is dreadful news. I am dumbfounded, how could this be the result after the judge's comments at the end of the trial?

Bewildering, completely bewildering.

There are evil forces at work somewhere I fear. Please, please, let it be a vicious rumour.
