Distinguished Colleagues, I have just received from the Siracusa institute of Criminal justice and Human rights based in Italy and partners with Afba of the death of the Hon. President of the institute Professor M C Bassiouni which sad event occurred this morning after a brief illness. He died peacefully at his home in the presence of members of his family.
Recall that Afba earlier this year was in Siracuse Italy to sign a cooperation Agreement with the Institute founded in 1949 and has gained worldwide acceptance in Forensic Criminology and Human rights Studies and training this makes a Afba a member of the Siracusa family. Prof Bassiouni dedicated his Lifetime to the process of training legal minds in Criminal justice, forensic legal Anthropology and promotion of Human rights.
He will be missed and his giant shoes difficult to fill.
Our thoughts and Prayers are with his immediate family and the Siracusa institute family. Afba will open a chat page in his memory, where we can all express our condolences and will be sent to Siracusa to enter his eternal records. Pls endeavour to pay tribute.
May his Soul rest in Solemn Peace.Amen.
SGD.Hannibal Uwaifo
President of the African Bar Association.
