The C.V. of the lawyer currently representing the murderess of her own 8-year-old daughter, Leonor Cipriano, and who offered the four detectives charged with torture the opportunity to receive 'only a suspended sentence' if they told the court that Goncalo Amaral had ordered them to torture Leonor Cipriano and that Amaral was present during the torture:
The career of Marcos Aragão Correia
1975 - Born: Madeira
2000? - Sets up legal practice claiming he specialises in ‘human rights’ cases
6 May 2007 - (‘Three days after Madeleine disappeared’) His underworld sources told him (cough) that Madeleine McCann had been raped and killed and her body thrown in a ‘murky lake’.
May to December 2007 - Er, did nothing (except send a recorded delivery letter to the McCanns - see below), except perhaps to negotiate a lucrative financial deal with Metodo 3, who were acting on behalf of the Helping to Find Madeleine Fund…who were acting on behalf of two British Doctors, Dr Gerry McCann and Dr Kate McCann.
2 Oct 2007 - Claims to have sent a Recorded Delivery letter from Madeira to the McCanns in Rothley allegedly containing details of ‘vital clues and evidence’ in the case. Also says he notified the Policia Judiciara in Funchal (Madeira).
17 Oct 2007 - Says he was notified that the Recorded Delivery letter never arrived to the McCanns although allegedly the letter was ‘signed for’
13 Nov 2007 - Mysteriously sues Portuguese postal service (the Correios de Portugal - CTT) for allegedly failing to deliver this letter. He told the court: “They are controversial matters, because there is no material proof of them, but I assure you there is a high degree of credibility about them. I am fulfilling my duty as a Portuguese citizen to take my ideas to the right place. I took my ideas to the PJ in Funchal, but since they didn’t reply, I took them direct to the McCanns”. He says a CTT officla falsely reported that the Recorded Delivery letter had been received. The judge dismissed Aragão Correia’s claim as unsubstantiated and orderd him to pay court costs of 100 euros (around £80). Source: Madeiran Daily News, 13 Nov 2007
10 Dec 2007 - Told Portuguese Police, in conjunction with Metodo3, that Madeleine’s body was probably lying in the Arade Dam near the tower. He had reached this conclusion after carefully considering (another cough) the information from ‘underworld sources’, who told him that Madeleine’s body was ‘in a murky lake, with a beach, near some trees’. Later, when questions were asked about his sources of information and why he hadn’t acted sooner, he changed his story to say that he had had a ‘supernatural indication’ or ‘vision’ (another cough) of where Madeleine body might be.
Dec - late Jan 2008 - Said Portuguese Police did ‘nothing’ to act on his ‘information’.
Jan 2008 - Pays for British divers from Dive Time, Lagos, Algarve to search one part of the Arade Dam. Cost at least £1,200 a day. Says he did this out of the goodness of his own heart, but later said Metodo 3 paid him ‘expenses’ [denied by Metodo 3]. Described in sections of the British press as ‘a good Samaritan’ (another cough). Media on hand to record the discovery of a 17-foot length of cord ‘which could have been used to tie up Madeleine’. Says he is ‘99% certain that Madeleine’s body will be found here’ [there’s over-confidence for you].
Mar 2008 - Further search of lake, this time managing to find ‘two black plastic bags of bones’ in the lake. Once again, media on hand to take photos of Dive Time divers, bags of bones etc. - lots of pictures of divers in black wet-suits in British media. At the same time the head of the Portuguese Police admitted that the McCanns were made ‘arguidos’ ‘hastily’.
These stories served a number of purposes, including:
(a) that the Portuguese police had acted ‘hastily’ in making Dr Gerry McCann and Dr Kate McCann suspects
(b) that the Portuguese police had deliberately ignored the vital evidence of Mr Aragão Correia’s underworld sources that Madeleine had been dumped at the bottom of a murky lake - and ignored his apparently unshakeable conviction that this ‘murly lake’ was the Arade Dam
(c) that the possibility that Madeleine’s body had been dumped in the Arade Dam tied in with the suspicious sight of a woman transferring a young child to another car in the Silves area, the woman looking like Mikaela Walczuch, the girlfriend of Mr Robert Murat. This nearly linked Madeleine’s ‘disappearance’, once again, to the ‘one-eyed oddball’, Robert Murat
(d) that Gerry and Kate McCann were not responsible; Aragão Coerreio said: “I don't believe Kate and Gerry did it. It could have been a single madman or a gang”.
Team McCann buoyant - see below:.
QUOTE: “Kate and Gerry believe it could be a key step in clearing their name. A friend revealed: ‘They're not punching the air as they know there's still a long way to go, but it's a step in the right direction’.” UNQUOTE
QUOTE: “Mr Mitchell added: ‘There was no air of celebration, but it's the sort of thing we have been waiting for. We hope that his comments are an indication police realise there's no case against Kate and Gerry and that it leads to them being eliminated from the inquiry’.” UNQUOTE
Not quite celebrating and ‘punching the air’, then’. But nearly.
Mar - October 2008 - Silence from Aragão Coerreio, apart from
8 April 2008 - Visits Leonor Cipriano in prison.
April 2008 – At the same time, a report said: “Aragão Correia also met the director of Odemira prison, Ana Maria Calado, who confirmed suspicions about Cipriano's treatment, noting that she was ‘shocked about the conditions in which Cipriano entered the prison’. A report to the ‘top judicial authorities’ in Portugal at the time (April 2008) said: “The report concludes that the testimony of Leonor Cipriano and of the Prison Director, as well as other available evidence, are convincing in terms of proving that a crime of torture was committed by officers of the Portuguese judicial police. It condemns the use of ‘medieval methods’ to ‘extract confessions at all costs, even if they are false’, as ‘inadmissible’ and as ‘harmful for Portugal's image as an EU member that defends human rights and has a modern legal order’ and, as such, argues that these practices must be punished in ‘exemplary’ fashion, or the Portuguese citizenry will lose faith in the judicial system.
The report ends with a message from Leonor Cipriano, who was treated as a monster as a result of the horrible nature of the crime she was accused and found guilty of committing: ‘I hope that my daughter Joana re-appears, not only to be with her again, but also to show the world that it was the male officers of the Policia Judiciara who tortured me and who are the real monsters’.”
October 2008 - Dramatically pops up in court to replace the lawyer representing the serial liar and murderess of her own daughter, Leonor Cipriano, currently serving 16 years for murder, in a claim that a confession was beaten out of her by Goncalo Amaral and his four detectives
November 2008 - Admits to a proposed ‘crucify Gonçalo Amaral’ deal with the lawyer for the four detectives. Tells the defence lawyer that his detectives will only get suspended sentences for a more minor offence if they say it was Amaral who ordered the torture and that he was there when it happened
November 2008 - Calls defence lawyer for the four detectives, Pragal Colaço, a ‘goat’
Summary of career to date:
Complete unknown until paid by the McCanns, the helping to Find Madeleine Fund and Metodo 3 to promote the abduction theory with two bogus searches of the Arade Dam and then to get Gonçalo Amaral convicted or ordering and covering up torture and beating of a prisoner who together with her own uncle murdered her own daughter
Prediction of future career:
1. Instead of helping to nail ‘disgraced cop’ Gonçalo Amaral, he in fact becomes ‘disgraced lawyer Aragão Correia’ - and thereby inadvertently turns the spotlight on the McCanns for having employed him.
2. McCanns, the Helping to Find Madeleine Fund and Metodo 3 have to explain what their relationship is and has been with Aragão Correia.
Bank accounts of Aragão Correia, Metodo 3 and Helping to Find Madeleine Fund examined by police.
