With deep regret we learned about sudden death of our colleague Tomasz Wacko, member of Norwegian Helsinki Committee, generous person and human rights defender.
In his work in Norwegian Helsinki Committee, Tomasz Wacko was our sincere friend, reliable partner, and adviser on many problems, connected with defense of human rights. Tomasz Wacko put much effort and all his heart and soul into saving the principle of human rights as the highest value of humanity. Just recently Tomasz has sent us a letter of solidarity in support of Belarusian non-governmental organizations, which suffer persecution from the authorities. His position of principle was for us always an example of commitment to the democratic values.
Unfortunately, the life of this young and energetic person came abruptly to an end. But we will always remember Tomasz Wacko as a warm-hearted, encouraging, sympathizing, and giving man.
We present our sincere condolences to Tomasz’ family, friends and colleagues.
