Eugene Schoulgin with Ismail Khan

Photograph of Ismail Khan, on the left, politician and governor of the district of Herat (2001-04), who hosted a dinner for members of the Herat branch of the Afghan Centre in Herat in 2003. In this photograph Khan can be seen with Eugene Schoulgin, on the right, member of the Norwegian and Swedish Centres, president of the Writers in Prison Committee (2000-04), international Secretary (2007-10), and vice-president of PEN International (2004-). Schoulgin visited Afghanistan in 2003 as part of a delegation from the Norwegian Centre, which helped establish the Afghan Centre. Schoulgin’s handwritten captions can be seen on the reverse side of the photograph, including notes that Khan was previously a “warlord” and the dinner “perhaps a little suspicious”.
