Death of Mr Lluís Maria de Puig, former President of the PACE – Message by Mr Josep Dallerès, Chair of the Ministers’ Deputies

14.12.2012 - “I was very sad to learn of the death of Lluís Maria de Puig. On behalf of the Committee of Ministers, I should like to extend my most sincere condolences to his family and friends. Everyone who knew him will remember his outstanding human and professional qualities and his commitment to the European cause. He did much to promote good relations between the Parliamentary Assembly and the Committee of Ministers so as to strengthen the action of our organisation, to which he was deeply attached. As Permanent Representative of Andorra, I should also like to praise the efforts made by Lluís Maria de Puig as early as in 1989, in his capacity as Parliamentary Assembly rapporteur, in the preparation of the Report on the situation in Andorra, which was a key element in the accession process of my country to the Council of Europe.”
