Sir: Claude Moraes ("One black MP for all Europe", 1 June) is unfair to the Germans in alleging that Turkish nationals have not been able to secure places on candidates' lists for the European elections on 10 June.

The Green Group in the European Parliament includes a German MEP, Ozan Ceyhun, who was born in Turkey and sought asylum in Germany in 1981.

He is once again on Die Grunen's list for 10 June, and is confident of joining Mr Moraes in the new Parliament.

I also understand that some Spanish lists include candidates of North African origin.
