Letter: In Brief

Sir: Andrew Gumbel (Weekend Review, 7 August) concludes that family and supporters of Manjit Basuta were attempting to whip up "excitement". A small child has lost his life. A woman stands convicted and is awaiting sentence. Having closely examined the documents provided by the defence team of American lawyers in the USA, Fair Trials Abroad agreed to support their call for a retrial. In fighting for justice, it would be unhelpful for us to do anything other than to work closely with the defence team.
