Vox populi: 'Long live Dr. Gonçalo Amaral'
Sandra Felgueiras: How do you interpret the fact that Isabel Duarte said that Ricardo Paiva, the Inspector requested by the defense, lied in this court?
Dr. António Cabrita: It's an opinion, it's respectable. Now if it is factuarl or consistent that's a different matter.
S.F.: But do you believe that could lead the judge to decide against you?
A.C.: I do not comment on opinions of colleagues. The right to an opinion is free in this outcry, that is what I defend, therefore Dr. Isabel Duarte, like any other citizen, have the right to opinion what they think.
Unknown Reporter: Gonçalo Amaral already said this afternoon that he would like the case to be re-opened.
A.C.: Which process?
U.R.: The process relative to the disappearence of Maddie.
A.C.: All of us would like that, to find out what really happened.
S.F.: Gonçalo Amaral said that he would like to constitute himself as an assistant. Legally, how is that possible? Is it possible for someone to be constituted as an assistant without presenting a new fact that allows the reopening of the process?
A.C.: Depends, if new facts are presented it's always possible to reopen the process.
S.F.: New facts, but could those facts be undertakings that were not carried out?
A.C.: Eventually, eventually. [nods affirmatively]
U.R.: Or it needs more than that?
A.C.: But on that issue I wont make any further comments. I don't know the process, except the DVD that was distributed.
S.F.: The reading of the verdict is on the 18th, is that it?
A.C.: On the 18.
S.F: Thank you.
A.C.: Good bye.
Gerald McCann: 'We would very much like the whole process reviewed, we would like that all the information held by all law enforcement to be put together and systematically reviewed and that they find areas for other investigations'.
S.F.: 'We were said that that notice that PJ received witch had inclusively photos from Madeleine or eventually from some child...'
G.M.: 'Pardon, sorry...' - turns head to another reporter, refusing to answer Sandra's question on what was divulged by Isabel Duarte during the accusation final allegations regarding photographs that she had found on the process at Portimão, of children similar to Madeleine (read here)
