Blanc check


While the sentences handed down to the defendants in the Mont Blanc tunnel fire case appear lenient given the loss of life involved, Andrew Worby's description of these people's actions as crimes against humanity in The Question (4/11 August) grossly overstates the case.

What we are looking at is the criminally negligent management of a public utility, not the Srebrenica massacre.

George Green (M), 29 Grosvenor Road, Muswell Hill, London, N10 2DR
