Translation of the Conclusions of the Appellate Court's Decision

Bildunterschrift hinzufügen

Thanks to Astro for the translation.

A great day for Amaral and certainly for freedom of speech.

I especially like this:

.... – it was the subjects of the appeal themselves [Kate and Gerry McCann] who, benefiting from an easy access, multiplied themselves in interviews and interventions in national and international media, one must conclude that it was them who, voluntarily, limited their rights to reservation and to the intimacy of private life.

By proceeding in this manner, they opened the way for anyone to equally express an opinion about the case, contradicting their thesis – without losing their right to exercise a legitimate, and constitutionally consecrated, right to an opinion and a freedom of expression of thought.

They used the media for their purposes - mainly in explaining away all the discrepancies their actions and statments had created - and therefore diminished their privacy rights to a level where the right to an opinion weighs more. FANTASTIC!!

    Best wishes Sr. Amaral

    What is next Johanna, do you know? I read "it is not over".
