The Mail are really going for it. They must be VERY sure they cannot be touched now . ! ! !
Tracey Kandohla again.
Karen Matthews, 41, who spent four years in prison over the staged kidnapping of her daughter Shannon, said: 'I've been judged and I'm paying for it but Maddie's mother was bad too."
The document, drafted by the McCanns' Portuguese lawyer Isabel Duarte and and her colleague Ricardo Correia, says: 'The appellants understand the archiving of the case took place because during the inquiry, sufficient evidence had been collected to show the 'arguidos' had not committed any crime.'Their main contentious point seems to be about the archiving dispatch. Let's be clear that it was the couple, as applicants, who, via their lawyer brought the matter of innocence and the statement Kate and Gerry McCann had been declared innocent through the shelving of the investigation process.
They said the removal of the McCanns' 'arguido' status had legally-binding connotations and claimed the Supreme Court judges' argument it could be easily altered 'lacked foundation.'
Accusing them of acting 'frivolously' and contradicting themselves with their statements about the reasons for the 2008 probe archive, they added: 'It cannot be stated that it is not acceptable that the archiving of the case is considered the equivalent to proof of innocence.'
