People in payout over Madeleine Fund libel

People in payout over Madeleine Fund libel16 October 2009

By PA Mediapoint

A public relations expert who helped in the search for Madeleine McCann accepted a donation to charity today over a claim that she overcharged the fund set up to find the missing child.

Justine McGuinness brought libel proceedings in London's High Court over an October 2007 article in The People.

Her solicitor, Amber Melville-Brown, told Mr Justice Eady that McGuinness was the communications strategist for the Find Madeleine Fund from June to September 2007.

The newspaper story alleged that she had charged the fund 20,000 in excess of her agreed fee and that, following a discussion with Gerry McCann in the summer of 2007, she was forced to part company with the fund.

Melville-Brown said: "In fact, Ms McGuinness did not overcharge the fund and indeed bore many of the necessary expenses herself. Neither was she forced to resign.


"As initially agreed with the fund, she left in September 2007 to meet other pre-arranged commitments."

Given McGuinness's commitments to providing support and assistance to the McCanns and the fund, and in order that her hard work and professional integrity should not be questioned, she felt she had no option but to bring proceedings to ensure that the true position was recognised and that the false allegations were not republished."

Melville-Brown said MGN Limited had accepted that the allegations were incorrect and apologised.

It agreed to make a donation to an undisclosed charity of Ms McGuinness's choice.

MGN's solicitor, Holly Mason, apologised for the distress and embarrassment caused.

Yet another thing that has been categorically proven to be completely untrue.

NOTE TO AMARAL, BENNETT, BUTLER AND STEVO

Please note that Justine donated her money to CHARITY, you money grabbing low life scum bags that think nothing of pimping off a missing child's name!

Good on you Justine. These was truly damaging accusations made about her and the paper acted either maliciously or unprofessionally or irresponsibly.

Either way, it is still libel, and the paper should have issued a big retraction. But that still does not undo the damage done to Justine in a professional capacity.

I do not see any evidence of a full and unequivocal apology from the antis that also defamed and maligned this innocent woman.

Now there is a surprise (not).
