THE SIRACUSA INSTITUTE ANNOUNCES THE LOSS OF PROFESSOR M. CHERIF BASSIOUNI

It is with deep sadness that the Siracusa International Institute for Criminal Justice and Human Rights announces the passing of Professor M. Cherif Bassiouni, founder of the Institute in 1972, General-Secretary from 1972-74, Dean from 1974-88, President from 1988-2015 and Honorary President since 2015.

Prof. Bassiouni passed away on Monday, 25 September in Chicago, at the age of 79, surrounded by his loving family. With him, the international community has lost the Father of International Criminal Law, an active supporter of the establishment of the International Criminal Court, and a tireless investigator of human rights violations.

The passing away of Professor Bassiouni leaves an unmistakable void in all those who have had the honor and the fortune of working at his side. The Siracusa International Institute mourns the disappearance of its father, a renowned jurist driven by an inexhaustible passion for upholding the rule of law and protecting human rights.

It is intended that participants may further specialise in their areas of practice or interest.
