BR, writing to the editor of The Times, comments on the attacks upon Ghana's legal procedures by the British press. The letter was eventually printed in The Ghanaian Times.

BR states that "It is clear that the Western press has it in for Dr. Nkrumah." An attempt was made on Nkrumah's life and the British press had been questioning "... the manner in which convictions were obtained for those accused of attempting to assassinate President Nkrumah."
