New slap in the face for Maddie parents: Cop wins fight for libel case appeal


AN EX-POLICE officer fined for claiming Madeleine McCann’s parents were behind her disappearance has won the right to an appeal.

Goncalo Amaral was ordered to pay £357,000 in libel damages to Kate and Gerry McCann after claiming that they covered up their daughter’s death.
But now he has been told the court of appeal will hear his case.
Mr Amaral headed the initial investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine, then aged three, in Portugal in 2007. T
he latest twist means the McCanns, of Rothley, Leics, may have to return to Portugal to give evidence again.
A source close to the couple said last night: “Kate and Gerry are exasperated by this. It just drags on and on and causes them even more anguish.”
Last night it was revealed Scotland Yard had made a new request to the Portuguese authorities for further cooperation in the case.
