 +| **20 April 2016** |  Court decides Dr. Amaral not to pay libel charge | Libel conviction of ex-detective in Madeleine McCann case overturned [[https://​www.theguardian.com/​uk-news/​2016/​apr/​20/​libel-conviction-ex-detective-goncalo-amaral-madeleine-mccann-overturned|Guardian]] | Lisbon lawyer Isabel Duarte told Associated Press she was notified of the court’s decision to uphold Gonçalo Amaral’s appeal against the order to pay Kate and Gerry McCann €500,000 (£394,000) in compensation. |

Furious Gerry and Kate made it clear through lawyers that they strongly disagreed with the judges'​ '​erroneous'​ premise the lifting of their status as '​arguidos'​ or formal suspects did not mean they were innocent of any involvement in their daughter'​s [[3rd_may|May 3]], 2007 disappearance.|

Asked to clarify what he meant, he added: 'The Scotland Yard investigation was going to be very narrowly focused and that focus would be away from any suspicion of wrongdoing on the part of the McCanns or the tapas friends.'​ |
