Reto Nause’s political legacy will be forever stained as he was the city official who agreed to the targeting of non-violent Tibetan protestors by armed snipers in his hometown of Bern, Switzerland. He was following the craven policy of appeasement adopted by the Swiss Authorities in its relations with China.
