Sir: Today we watched the F2 news on French satellite and were shocked at the disclosure of the Christian names of the two juveniles involved in the James Bulger murder trial. What is the use of anonymity to protect the identity of the accused in this country if it is openly ignored in others?

Yours faithfully,
