    Late King's wishes for Thai children

    News, Published on 12/01/2019

    » As Thailand celebrates National Children's Day today, I wish to share my recollection of a memorable audience with His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej and his profound message and wishes for the children of Thailand and the world. I had the great honour to meet the late king on Nov 12, 1998. I was then serving as Unicef's regional director for East Asia and the Pacific, based in Bangkok. The occasion of my audience with the late king at Chitralada Palace was to accompany visiting Unicef executive director Carol Bellamy. Also accompanying us was the late Thai foreign minister Surin Pitsuwan. ​

    Public apathy feeds high-level graft

    News, Published on 15/06/2015

    » Ours is a world of impunity. Allegations of corruption swarmed around Fifa for decades, culminating in mass indictments of Fifa officials last week.
