Day Three. Tuesday, 19 August 2014
The Pyidaungsu Institute (PI) for Peace and Dialogue, which I have been chosen to escort, is not, as some believe, an affiliate of the MPC. Neither is it serving under the UNFC or the NCCT. (The UNFC now has its own research establishment, Ethnic Nationalities Affairs Center (ENAC). In fact, it is not subordinate to any organization, even though it is funded by the Euro Burma Office (EBO) headed by Harn Yawnghwe, who has earned both loyal friends and bitter enemies throughout his politically active 26 years career.
