"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

No compromises in Human Rights

BBC Radio 4 - Moral Maze, Sochi

Andrew Fagan, University of Essex Human Rights Centre:

"Perhaps with the exception of some Scandinavian countries... all states violate human rights to a certain degree. Some do so almost accidentally, some do so almost as the very raison d'etre for their existence. It's a real problem, clearly confronting human rights as a human rights defender requires a realistic appraisal of just how widespread human rights violations are"
