In memoriam: President David Sassoli

It is with great sorrow that we all learned about the passing of European Parliament President David Sassoli yesterday morning.

President Sassoli passed away on 11 January 2022 in Aviano (Italy). A Member of the European Parliament since 2009, he was elected President in July 2019 for the first half of the legislature.

The European Parliament is now honouring his memory, and we wanted to inform you about the commemoration, should you wish to take part in any way.

A virtual book of condolence has been opened from today, 12 January to Saturday, 22 January 2022. The messages may be sent at the following link: https://opinio.europarl.europa.eu/s?s=4941

A Book of Condolence has also been opened for signature at Europe House, 32 Smith Square, SW1P 3EU, London, on Wednesday 12 January until Friday 21 January. The Liaison Office would kindly request anyone who wishes to sign in person, to announce their arrival by e-mail: EPlondon@europarl.europa.eu

Due to the pandemic situation and current measures adopted in the United Kingdom, however, the Liaison Office encourages everyone to submit the messages of condolence to the virtual book if possible.
