Kate And Gerry McCann Reportedly Have Not Been Cleared Over Madeline’s Disappearance
According to reports from The Sun, Madeline McCann’s parents have pleaded with their Portuguese lawyer to keep quiet after judges ruled they were not in the clear over their daughter’s disappearance.
According to further reports from The Mirror, their lawyer, Isabel Duarte was believed to comment on the failed libel battle against ex-cop Goncalo Amaral, who claims the couple faked Maddie’s abduction.
But Kate and Gerry have now reportedly ordered her to not “say anything” or respond to any media requests after the judgement was handed down last week.
Ms Duarte said today: ”We received instructions from the clients not to make any declaration or give public information about the file against Mr Amaral or the case itself”.
The couple lost their nine-year civil battle against Amaral, who claimed their daughter had been accidentally killed in May 2007 and they had covered it up.
The devastating blow came after judges ruled Kate and Gerry were not officially in the clear over their daughter’s disappearance.
They were ruled out as “arguidos” – formal suspects – in 2008 but the country’s top court said in newly released 76-page dossier that this does not “equate to proof of innocence”.
