Passing of Dr Rudolf Machacek

It was with great sadness that the ICJ learned of the passing of Dr. Rudolf Machacek who died yesterday, 6 October 2014, at the age of 87.

Dr. Machacek was an Honorary Member of the ICJ having previously served as an ICJ Commissioner from 1976-1991 and on the ICJ’s Executive Committee from 1985-1991.

He was a distinguished figure in constitutional justice and human rights. During his career he held positions in the Austrian Constitutional Court, on the Council of Europe’s Committee for the Prevention of Torture and as an Adjunct Professor of Constitutional Jurisdiction and Fundamental Rights at the Johannes Kepler Universitat in Linz, Austria.

Our thoughts and condolences are with his family.
