About Sir John Sawers

Sir John Sawers is the UK's Permanent Representative to the United Nations in New York. In June 2009, he is named as the new Chief of the UK's Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) and will take charge from Sir John Scarlett in November 2009. However with Sawers wife, Shelley Sawers, publishing family holiday photographs and other personal details (such as about where they live and work, their friends and where they go on holiday) on Facebook, the credibility of Sawers is questioned.
