....to meet with the Portuguese authorities, with the Judiciary Police? To do a reconstruction? To reopen the process? A big round: No! The couple are meeting Lift Consulting's Executive Director Cláudia Nogueira, their PR team in Lisbon owned by Santiago da Cunha and their Portuguese lawyer Isabel Duarte. We can only guess what strategies will be drawn today, though with hindsight we can fairly say their plans will not include any real action to reopen their missing daughter's process and will likely include a few meetings with the “sardine munching” media. Oh, and perhaps one or two encounters with their rent-a-cops and rent-a-mercs...
Maddie parents are in meetings today in Lisbon
by José Manuel Oliveira
Gerry e Kate McCann, Maddie's parents, are travelling to Lisbon today, to have meetings with their work teams, namely their lawyer Isabel Duarte and their PR agency directed by Cláudia Nogueira. The McCanns presence in Lisbon comes a few days after the British couple launch of an online petition seeking to pressure the Portuguese and United Kingdom authorities to review the process of Maddie's disappearance, in order to gather new elements that may allow its reopening by the Public Ministry. In their coming to Lisbon, Gerry and Kate McCann will grab the opportunity to give interviews to the Portuguese media. At the end of the day, they are likely to return to the town of Rothley, in northern England, where they live. Madeleine disappeared on the night of May, 3 2007 in Praia da Luz, Lagos, whilst her parents dined with friends at a restaurant.

McCann appeal to the Supreme Court in order to annul Lisbon's Appellate Court Ruling over Gonçalo Amaral's book [had to rewrite the title, which is totally gibberish copied from Lusa news agency, original title: Madeleine: McCann recorrem para o Supremo da anulação de proibição da venda de livro de Gonçalo Amaral, verbatim translation follows]
Lisbon, 10 nov (Lusa) at 20:12 - The McCann couple has appealed to the Supreme Court of Justice over the Appellate Court decision annulment of the prohibition to sell Gonçalo Amaral's book: “Maddie, The Truth of the Lie", stated today the lawyer of the parents of the child who disappeared in the Algarve.
Isabel Duarte, Gerry and Kate McCann lawyer, guaranteed that the appeal has been delivered to the Supreme Court of Justice on November 5, requesting the annulment of the decision made by the Appellate Court in Lisbon on the 19 of October.
In the appeal, the lawyer argues that the Appellate Court “has not taken in consideration facts, which along the process [I presume the process is the one relative to the book & documentary banning, and the silencing of a Portuguese citizen amongst other targets of the McCann injunction] were never put in question" and she stressed that “those elements were not analysed” by the Appellate Judges to overturn the decision of the Civil Court of Lisbon following the injunction made by Madeleine's parents.
