Death of Maître Daniel Jacoby, former FIDH President

Dear Friends,

We were sad to learn of the death of Mr Daniel Jacoby, a lawyer at the Paris Court of Appeal. In the 1960s, Mr Jacoby and Mr. Michel Blum, gave new life to FIDH. Mr. Jacoby was the FIDH President for 9 years, from 1986 to 1995.

FIDH wishes to express its affection and sympathy for the family and friends of Daniel Jacoby in this painful moment.

We will pay tribute to him at a later date, when circumstances so allow.

Alice Mogwe
FIDH President
