 +| **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. |
 +| **04 Dec. 2016** | OP Grange 'last dice' |  Lead is said to be the 'last throw of the dice' in investigation [[https://​www.independent.co.uk/​news/​uk/​crime/​madeleine-mccann-scotland-yard-investigation-gang-traffickers-a7454796.html | Independent]] |  The lead is said to be the "last throw of the dice" in the investigation.

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.|

 +| **03 May 2017** | Colin Sutton said a high-ranking friend in the Met called him and warned him not to lead the case when [[metropolitan_police|Scotland Yard]] announced it would get involved in 2010. |  '​Scotland Yard would order him to prove Kate and Gerry were innocent and ignore other leads' ​ - [[https://​www.dailymail.co.uk/​news/​article-4467832/​Met-interested-proving-McCann-parents-innocent.html | Daily Mail]] | Speaking to Martin Brunt on Sky News, he said: 'I did receive a call from a very senior met police officer who knew me and said it wouldn’t be a good idea for me to [[operation_grange|head investigation]] on the basis that I wouldn’t be happy conducting an investigation being told where I could go and where I couldn’t go, the things I could investigate and the things I couldn’t. 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.'​ |
