To assist and to archive processes (2)

by Gonçalo Amaral

“I make an appeal to you from where I stand: do intervene, with the knowledge and the competence that you are known for”.

The Lawyers’ Order has made itself an assistant in a case trial concerning alleged torture that was committed by policemen against a woman who was condemned for her daughter’s death. It could make itself an assistant in other cases as well, like those of corruption and of financial criminality in general. As far as we know, it hasn’t made itself an assistant in inquiries like those of ‘Operação Furacão’ and Freeport.

It would be nice if the Lawyers’ Order wouldn’t leave us thinking that it doesn’t do so because there the suspects or arguidos aren’t policemen. Certainly not. Alas, in these cases, I prefer to think that it didn’t do so due to pure distraction; therefore, I leave an appeal to whomever it may concern. Not only concerning processes of financial crimes but also thinking of so many other situations. Mister President of the Order, as a father and as a citizen of this country, I make an appeal to you from where I stand: do intervene, with the knowledge and the competence that you are known for, and make yourself an assistant in all of the criminal processes where the law permits such.

This is the only way that you can become a precious instrument in the fight for the un-archiving of those cases where the victims were helpless children. This is the only way to prevent that processes are archived without everything having been investigated, and justice done.

    Mr Amaral, I'm so pleased that you are still trying to fight the corner of all helpless children and that their plight is not left up to such people as the McCanns, Clarence Mitchell and Gordon Brown.

    I hope you are aware of the amount of support you have from around the world and that we are counting on you to help seek justice for Maddie and the other children.

    No pressure!

    Best wishes to you and Sofia and your children and that you stay safe from the McMafia's. Best wishes to all the other PJ too.


    For Sofia: Orchids and Roses

  3. The need to fight for the un-archiving of cases 'where the victims were helpless children', Amaral rightly points out.

    Madeleine McCann and Joana Cipriano spring to mind. Why? Because they have dominated the news. Joana might not have done so to the current extent if it weren't for Madeleine. Why? Because they have been brought together. By whom? By the McCann Team trying to incriminate and consequently discredit G Amaral. Why? Because G Amaral knows too much, he knows what happened to Madeleine and that is not what her parents say.

    What the McCann Team does not appear to realize is that the more they try to discredit Amaral the more they show what they are really trying to do. That simply works against their attempts to convince the world the McCanns are innocent.

  4. Joana, every day I find myself thinking we better forget about this. If not forget, tell yourself that the truth will never come out.

    Check the last post I wrote about this case at 'Muito suave'

  5. Well done G. Amaral. Marinho Pinto is a Croc on behalf of PS power. He is looking for a ministry job to help all the corrupts. Justice is for low or middle class people working honestly.With politics and economic people is a big cover-up, waiting for big tips on his salary.

  6. I agree with everything you say, Dr. Gonçalo Amaral.
    Since the very begining the public interventions of this Master of Laywers Order wasvery polemic and odd. I was not susprised with his present atitude. What surprise me is how come Lawers had chosen him to represent them....If he want normal citizens take him seriously he would have intervene also in the cases you indicate, for ex.
    With the small hope i have in justice yet , hope justice will done this cases as in others, including those which envolve pwerful people.
    Forgive me, Joana, my english, but i wanted it to be understood by all, not only portuguese.

  7. Sorry Joana, this isn`t strictly a comment on the above article, just wondering if anyone knows why the 3A forums are showing as not being found on the server? I can get the index page but can`t get anywhere beyond that :(
