Unfair to judge now

Editor's Viewpoint

It is easy to jump to conclusions about the two young women, Michaella McCollum Connolly from Belfast and Scot Melissa Reid, who are being held in a Peruvian jail accused of trying to smuggle cocaine out of the country.

However, the events may not be as clear cut as they first seem and everyone would be well advised to wait until more evidence is available before rushing to judgment. Certainly, it is to be hoped that both will obtain good diplomatic and legal assistance before any trial.
