Sir: While the relief of the debt burden on the flood-devastated countries would clearly be beneficial, it could be made even more so.

Sadly the human rights record of the Central American region is amongst the worst. It would help rebuild the societies of these countries as well as their economy if the relief of debt was made conditional upon the introduction of effective human rights legislation and institutions.
