An ambassador who spoke out: Murder in Samarkand
Murder in Samarkand was last Saturday's Afternoon Play on Radio 4. I missed it but for a short time, until the afternoon of 27 Feb. 2010, it can be heard on the internet. David Tennant plays Craig Murray who was the UK's ambassador to Uzbekistan. He found out about serious abuses of human rights in Uzbekistan and started to speak out about them. Before long he was no longer in his job.
