Sympathy for Berenson

Boston Herald -- 3 August 1999

Letter to the Editor

by Gary Boyle

As a prisoner, I can only imagine what it would be like living under conditions such as Lori Berenson, without having gotten a fair trial. As a father and American, I know how her family and supporters must feel.

What amazes me is how a newspaper in a free society can write an editorial supporting a dictatorship that denies Americans due process in an open court ("No relief for Berenson," July 26). I thought your editorial was propoganda for the Peruvian government.
