Letter: Trauma for parents.
SIR - Modern travelling and media developments have shrunk the world so much as to make faraway places almost neighbours, deemed, not too long ago, too far or too inconsequential there to pacify and christianise and for armies and civil servants to colonise.
Thankfully - although many of our consciences have been touched to large degrees - the sufferings of so many countries have become concerns of many of us as the media highlights their problems, granted not sufficiently enough.
We've been able to alleviate some of them, to some extent.
Some people have become voluntary workers overseas.
There is, however, one Welsh couple pressing for compensation and a formal apology for the illegal shooting that killed their peace-activist son, accusing that government of its "wall of deceit and fabrication over this shooting.
And the denial to the family of a fair and just compensation.
That can lead to an international criminal responsibility for whoever acknowledges such an attitude".
It has been a traumatic five year campaign for Anthony and Jocelyn Hurndall on behalf of their son Tom and I trust many readers will share my sentiments in offering them our strongest support in their heartbreaking quest to seek justice against a deficient and insensitive Israeli government.
