Tiddo Hofstee, former Chairman of the Executive Board and the Committee of the NHC, passed away in The Hague, on Sunday, 29 April 2018 at the age of 77.
Ambassador Hofstee studied both Law and Arabic at the University of Leiden. Later in life he also learnt Russian and developed a great love of classical Russian literature.
“He had a great love and admiration for the strengths and endurance of the Russian and the other peoples of Eastern Europe, but he also knew the weaknesses and risks of their systems of government. He therefore explored new sources of funding to convince the outside world that NHC still had lots of work to do.”
