With the passing away of Mario Oriani-Ambrosini, Italian constitutional lawyer and South African member of Parliament, we have lost one of the most committed and brightest supporters of the struggle of the Tibetan people.
Mario Oriani-Ambrosini passed away at the age of 53 on August 16 after a protracted and courageous struggle against cancer.
An MP for the Inkatha Freedom Party, Mario Oriani-Ambrosini was an outspoken defender of human rights and democracy. He is known for leading a successful lawsuit against the South African government’s decision to deny a visa for the Dalai Lama. In a statement announcing the legal action in November 2012, Mr Oriani-Ambrosini said the refusal of the visa showed how South Africa was beholden to China, and that: “The Dalai Lama is welcome in each and every country of the world, except China and South Africa. A recent poll showed that 89% of the South African people consulted indicated that they would welcome the Dalai Lama in South Africa.” The Dalai Lama sent his condolences to Mr Ambrosini’s family.
