Chief Justices from around the world assembled here called for a World Parliament and the genuine rule of law in world affairs. I was one of the invited speakers at the conference. The short fellow with the hat and black suit on the right is the former Supreme Court Justice of Pakistan. Given the on-going India-Pakistan conflict, his presence (in the service of world law and world peace) caused quite a stir in the Indian press.
After the Chief Justices conference we held a global strategy meeting of the World Constitution and Parliament Association for which I served as Chairperson. Each representative was given a flag from his or her country and a mike. This is a photo of that meeting.
