BOD writes to Spanish Ambassador

Last updated: 2004-03-15

The President of the Board of Deputies, Henry Grunwald QC, has written to the Ambassador of Spain, the Marques de Tamaron, to express the Jewish community's sympathy over the appalling bombings of Madrid's train system, which killed 200 innocent people last week, and injured many more.

Drawing upon the security fears of Israelis and Jews the world over, who have suffered terrorism and hate crimes in abundance, Henry Grunwald told the Ambassador: "We share the pain of your people and hope that those responsible for committing this barbaric act are soon brought to justice".
