Reader feedback: Nice one, Slovakia!

Re: Slovak police assist in arrest of UK terror suspect, By Martina Pisárová, Vol 8, No 45, Nov 25 to Dec 1

Congratulations to the Slovak Republic for its prevention of a possible cyanide attack on the London underground.

You had information on one Rabah Kadre but you were rebutted by British politicians. I really cannot believe this! Especially after Slovakia's apprehension of the three [Real] IRA suspects who were brought to justice and charged in England.

I honestly cannot believe that England can call you a soft back door of entry to Britain for asylum seekers, some of whom might be extremists!

Very kind regards from England,

Marilyn Dale
