IN MEMORIAM Abd El Azim Wazir 26 June 1945 – 8 May 2015

Abd El Azim Wazir was born in Beni-Sweif, a city from which his father was a Senator in the 1930s and this is how our friendship was established many years later. His father had served in the senate with my Grandfather who was its President and they were good friends and that is the first thing he mentioned to me when we first met in 1981. From that day on we became close friends and it was my pleasure and privilege to have worked with him at the AIDP and at ISISC, where he made many valuable contributions.

 AIDP  is deeply saddened to announce that Professor Dr. Otto Triffterer passed away on 1 June 2015.

He will always be fondly remembered. Our condolences go to his family, especially his wife Maria and his two sons, Tobias and Daniel.
Prof. dr. John A.E. Vervaele
