    Dear Mr Boomer,

    Thank you for your letter of 17 January regarding your long search to establish the truth surrounding the disappearance of your son.

    I can but express some understanding of the heartbreak that your family and the Williams family must have suffered throughout this period.

    I will of course support your attempt to establish an International Independent Enquiry in Malta but self-evidently you have no illusions regarding the difficulty of achieving such.

    I feel that the respective Foreign Offices are the appropriate vehicles through which direct pressure should be applied to the Maltese authorities.

    It would be appreciated if you could keep me informed of any developments.

    Yours sincerely


    Jim Nicholson MEP
