Petr Uhl: in memoriam

It is with great sadness that FRA notes the passing of the noted Czech human rights champion and former FRA Management Board member, Petr Uhl.

Throughout his life Petr Uhl stood for human rights and justice. He was a co-founder of the Czech movement Charter 77, a governmental human rights envoy, mentor to Czech civil society organisations and media representatives.

FRA would like to acknowledge Petr Uhl’s valuable contribution to strengthening human and fundamental rights across the EU and his steadfast support to the Agency over the years.
