and Gerry McCann
wanted the Supreme Court of Justice to
nullify a decision by the
that allowed for the book
by Goncalo Amaral, 'The
Truth of the Lie', to be distributed. Nonetheless, the judges
have refused the request.
Former Policia Judiciaria inspector
will again be able to sell the book about the
'The Truth of the
Lie', which was taken off shelves after an injunction that was filed by
the parents of the little English girl that disappeared in
Praia da Luz
was accepted by a lower court.
The Supreme Court judges refused the request for an 'exceptional review'
of the Appeals Court's decision, which overturned the injunction that
had been filed by Kate and Gerry McCann.
The counsellors' decision may be appealed to the Constitutional Court,
but that will have no suspensive effect, which means that Kate and Gerry
McCann will have to return every copy of Amaral's book that they
If they do not comply, they may even incur in a crime of disobedience.
Contacted by Sol, the McCanns' lawyer,
Isabel Duarte, refused to comment on
this judicial decision, because she hadn't been notified yet.
