Sir:Under a photograph of Mr Fayed emerging from the High Court you say "Mr Fayed is likely to use his victory to add weight to his demands for a British Passport" ("Fayed demolishes Hamilton in the sleaze trial of the century", 22 December).

Surely the reverse is true. Mr Fayed may have won a battle but he has lost the war. To further his application he should have demonstrated that he did not bribe people. Do we really want to give British citizenship to a self-confessed briber?

What is of concern is to whom the other brown envelopes went.
