On the McCann Lawyers
Isabel Duarte, the new McCanns lawyer, justified today the presence of the McCann couple at the second hearing [the first took place on the 4th of December] in the Civil Court of Lisbon regarding the temporary injunction that banned the book 'Maddie, The Truth of The Lie', stating that she needed 'psychological help'.
«I asked for their support. I need support because I am doing what 90% of the people don't believe in and their presence gives me strength.», said Isabel Duarte.
