"GONC LOSES Court Case against Marcos".

Post by Pedro Silva on Thu Jun 28, 2012 6:47 am

My friends, this was taken from TVI news:

http://www.tvi24.iol.pt/sociedade/goncalo-amaral-caso-joana-leonor-cipriano-pj-joana-tvi24/1357977-4071.html

absolution asked for "slanderers" of Gonçalo Amaral in the "Joana case"

Lawyer and professor were accused of defaming the former PJ inspector, for alleged torture of Leonor Cipriano, condemned by her daughter's death.

The prosecutor asked, on Wednesday, the acquittal of a lawyer and a university professor accused of defaming Gonçalo Amaral, a session marked by the return to court of Leonor Cipriano, condemned by her daughter's death in September 2004, in the Algarve.

During the session, in which were read the closing arguments, the court of Faro heard the deputy of the prosecutor considered that the conditions are not gathered to have convictions.

A lawyer for Leonor Correia, Aragão Correia, and university professor António Pedro Dores, president of the Association Against Exclusion for Development (ACED), are accused of defaming the former inspector, who investigated for nearly eight years the disappearance of Joana, daughter of Leonor Cipriano.

In an article published a report on torture that association, Gonçalo Amaral, now retired, was mentioned as one of the torturers of Leonor.

In closing arguments, the representative of the MP held that the acquittal is justified because it was proven that there really was torture, practiced by members of the PJ at the premises of police in Faro, even not having been able to prove exactly who tortured.

According to the deputy, even though there are different accounts of what actually happened on the premises of PJ in 14 and October 15, 2004, stopped making sense to speak of defamation because all evidence points to the existence of torture.

On the other hand, stressed the consistency of Leonor Cipriano about the authorship of Gonçalo Amaral as one of the perpetrators of the attacks, although the mother of Joana have different versions on other aspects of the events.

The prosecutor also criticized the "incorrect story 'that Leonor Cipriano injuries should be from a fall down the stairs on the premises of the PJ in Faro, reported that a police report.

Before, Leonor Cipriano, who is serving in Prison Odemira, reported in court what happened that day, reiterating that on the afternoon of October 14, 2004, was tortured for six elements of the PJ, including Gonçalo Amaral.

According to its description, Eleanor, heard as a witness, the inspectors put a bag over her head, kicked it around the body and hit him with a telephone book and a blunt object.

Reportedly, the attacks continued after they have forced her to kneel on glass ashtrays with two sharp edges, transported by Gonçalo Amaral.

In a story that had to be interrupted by the presiding judge, when the witness began to cry before the physical torture Leonor was posted for a long time in an office with a pistol on the desk.

The Court of Faro scored for July 17 the sentencing of this case.

The May 22, 2009, Gonçalo Amaral, so now retired, was sentenced to one year in prison for making false allegations, were suspended for the same period in the trial of the alleged attacks on Leonor Cipriano, but was acquitted on the criminal of omission of denunciation.

The trial involved five inspectors and former inspectors of the PJ, and Leonel Marques, Pereira Cristóvão, Paulo Marques Bom were acquitted of the crimes they were accused, and Antonio Nunes Cardoso was sentenced to two years and six months in prison for forgery of a document with probation for two years.

Leonor Cipriano and the missing girl's uncle, João Cipriano, were convicted in November 2004 to 20 years and four months and 19 years and two months imprisonment, respectively, for murder and concealment of a corpse.

On appeal, the sentence of Leonor Cipriano was reduced to 16 years and eight months.

Excellent news Pedro.
We always knew Marcos would win this case, if they got a judge that isn't corrupt!

BUT, why is Leonor still in prison? When the judge here say's the PJ lied.

Poor old Gonc won't get his 3,000 Euros from Marcos and António. I presume, Gonc will have to pay all the costs woohoo woohoo woohoo

Good to see justice and commonsense working together in Portugal.

What a hide that Gonc has, trying to sue for defamation. I think that worse is yet to come for the man.

And good point about Leonor. Why the hell is she still in gaol? The conviction should be quashed, and a new trial called. This time with a judge who will demand that real evidence be presented to prove the Prosecutor's case. It is a travesty that Leonor is still locked away.

Just one small problem, Dianeh. There was No Evidence. It was all thrown out as Unproven. Don't ask me how the Ciprianos were convicted because I haven't been able to work that out.

Sabot, I agree about the evidence. There doesnt seem to have been enough evidence to even support a guilty plea, or the confession.

But that still doesnt mean the conviction should not be found unsafe. Whether or not there is remaining evidence to present to the court should not be the concern. That is up to the Prosecutor to look at when determining whether to retry the case or not.

To me though, and this is said without indepth knowledge of the Portuguese Justice system, there would appear to be other factors at work keeping Leonor in gaol, than straight out justice.
