“It is with great sadness that I learned of the sudden death of Jean - Claude Frécon. An exceptional personality I had the opportunity to meet with, as we shared the same passion for local democracy as well as its complex issues and its challenging opportunities. During his recent visit in Attica, we had the chance to discuss thoroughly the issue of migrants and refugees and to highlight the need for more solidarity, more justice, more common effort for what is a critical issue for the future of Europe.
We will certainly miss his passion and courage, as well as his insightful analysis at such a critical period for our continent.
My thoughts and deepest condolences are with his family, his peers, his friends and his relatives”.
