'A JURY of citizens, horrified by the kidnap and subsequent death of a baby, has returned a verdict which the majority of the British public demanded: guilty without extenuating circumstances, without taking their age or the social environment in which they were being raised into account.
What else could this jury do? The law in Spain would not even allow the boys to be tried . . .'
El Pais, Spain.
'THE end of the trial is like the end of a nightmare for a society unable to recognise itself in the children who murdered James. Perhaps these two children are the result of some terrible disintegration of (that) society.'
