Sonali Samarasinghe Wickrematunge now carries the title “Editor in Exile”. In September of 2008, she was the second winner of the Global Shining Light Award in Norway, presented by the International Conference of Investigative Journalists for exposing how a government minister “used his power and connections to the President of the country to run roughshod over the media and the justice system.” Less than four months later her husband of two months, the well known editor of the Leader newspaper, Sri Lanka, was brutally gunned down as he drove to work and Sonali was forced to flee the country, along with other members of her family—hence her unusual title.

Henry Heald, Canada, addressing the ICF session at Caux.

Way back in 1992, when the IC Forum was preparing its first International conference in France at the resort town of Le Touquet, a tall, ambling, broad-shouldered man found his way to the Conference Centre in the Palais de l’Europe. He turned out to be Canadian journalist, Henry Heald, for many years a reporter on Ottawa’s principal daily, and, more recently, a highly appreciated agricultural writer with a world-wide brief.
