Letter: Sick old man

Sir: At a time when the international community is talking of setting up an international war crimes tribunal to try Saddam Hussein, it would be the height of hypocrisy for Jack Straw, the Home Secretary, not to allow Augusto Pinochet to be tried in Spain for his crimes against humanity.

Why should one dictator escape justice just because he hasn't fallen out with the governments who kept him in power?
