A brief encounter with former Burma spy chief Khin Nyunt - by Aung Zaw, founder, editor of The Irrawaddy Reminds me of time in 70s when I met Sein Lwin and the then railways minister at 2 different soon kyways. SL impossibly seemed afraid of me! And the other man seemed on the verge of saying something, his lips moved as if he was nervous or preparing to say something - but his wife put her hand on his arm and stopped him. I could not imagine how these powerful people would fear an ordinary university lecturer like me. kmk
