Amaral is looking for a British lawyer

The former PJ investigator's legal representative has contacted two British lawyers, to launch a libel suit against several British newspapers. The first lawyer contacted accepted to represent Mr. Gonçalo Amaral but, two weeks after, changed his mind. The same happened with a second lawyer. “I don't know what is going on, over there, but I'm convinced this is not a problem of Democracy. United Kingdom is a democratic country, with democratic laws, so everybody should have its rights (to a legal defence). I don't understand what's going on”, Mr. Amaral told to Lusa News Agency.
