An attempt to breach the Secrecy of Justice
The McCanns couple lawyer, Isabel Duarte, now intends to sue the former coordinator of the PJ, Gonçalo Amaral, for having allegedly violated the secrecy of justice in the Madeleine McCann case.
by Frederico Duarte Carvalho, journalist
Based on the testimony of the publisher of "The Truth of the Lie", Mário Sena Lopes, Isabel Duarte realized that the work would have been delivered to the publisher "Guerra & Paz" before the 21st July 2008, the date of the final dispatch that archived the process. Therefore, Gonçalo Amaral violated the secrecy and must pay for it.
However, at the time that Gonçalo Amaral began working on the project, it was already expected - by the act of the law - that the process would leave the secrecy of justice close to the month of August. But, by coincidence, the process was made public days before the publication of the book - the latter had been edited on the 24th July [the book was released to the public on the 25th, Friday, July 2008].
That is, Gonçalo Amaral was even willing to violate the law of the secrecy of justice and start a media debate on the subject. Except that with the archival made a few days before the launch of the book, Gonçalo Amaral could no longer be accused of violating the secrecy. At most, he could be charged with an attempt to breach the secrecy of justice. And he really tried, but even that was not allowed...
