SRSG Atul Khare: 10 years on - Strong foundations of democracy and rule of law

CF: Atul, we're both from India, old chum, so I recognise these platitudes a mile away. It's easier than smelling the location of the nearest Masala Dosa. You didn't explain why you didn't attend the 10th anniversary of the Liquica massacre last month. Nor your general silence on Justice. Secretary-General aisa nahin banta beta. Bahut kuch karna padega.
