The Wildlife Justice Commission mourns the passing of our Ambassador, former Dutch Prime Minister, Wim Kok. We were honoured and privileged to have him as a member of our Council, which he joined in February 2017. Our organisation benefited from the dedication, advice and wisdom that he brought to our mission to achieve justice for wildlife. We will always be grateful for his global vision and his commitment to dialogue and collaboration, goals that he pursued during his longstanding career in the Netherlands and Europe, and which contributed to the development of the WJC. Mr Kok has left an extraordinary legacy of effective leadership and social commitment that is an inspiration and an example for present and future generations.
Our most heartfelt condolences to his family, friends and the Dutch people.
He will be greatly missed.
