Letter: Leave Scots out of Bridgewater

Sir: Rather than "British Justice" being in the dock in the Bridgewater case ("Bridgewater three to go free", 21 February) it is the English judicial system which must stand trial, for Scotland has an entirely different and separate legal system.

Under Scots law, such a miscarriage of justice could not have taken place, as convictions cannot be based on confessions alone - a practice that has since been incorporated within the English system.
