Henning Nielsen served his party as Chairman of its international committee and as Chairman of Liberal International’s human rights committee, after LI President of Honour, Lord Alderdice.
Leading the tribute on behalf of the international liberal family, LI President, Dr. Juli Minoves said: “Through the years, as we served in the Liberal International bureau together, I got to know him. A liberal carved in stone. A man of ethics and clear values. A human being who left a deep imprint for his work on human rights and a unique charisma of gentleness.”
“Liberal International owes him much: he led our human rights work and was vigilant that our membership did not stray. He accompanied our organization in times of expansion, as we became more global, and built up the foundations of our active participation in international organizations” added the LI president.
Liberal international’s past presidents, Hans van Baalen MEP and Lord John Alderdice, also shared their condolences and secretary general, Emil Kirjas.
