Sir: No Christian can condone murder - whether at the hands of individuals, or of a state under the banner of "justice". But those Westerners who decide - usually for financial benefits - to live in a country whose fundamental beliefs, and hence laws, are different from our own, must realise that they are thereby accepting such differences: an anachronistic imperial naivety that being supporters of another nation's ruling elite sets them above local laws and codes of ethics will inevitably end in tears.
