Condolence telegram of President Áder János to Fra’ Ruy Gonçalo do Valle Peixoto de Villas Boas Lieutenant ad interim of the Sovereign Order of Malta

His Excellency
Fra’ Ruy Gonçalo do Valle Peixoto de Villas Boas
Lieutenant ad interim of the
Sovereign Order of Malta

Rome

I was deeply saddened to learn about the passing away of His Most Eminent Highness Fra’ Giacomo Dalla Torre del Tempio di Sanguinetto last night. I recall his kind readiness to accept my invitation to Budapest for this coming October; his official visit would have offered a good opportunity for me to meet him and to discuss the many issues of common concern with him.

It is with sincere sorrow that I remember the late Grand Master as an eminent symbol of the Order’s humanity and its profound dedication to charitable activities worldwide, including Hungary.

In this moment of grief, I wish to express, also in the name of all the citizens of Hungary, my heartfelt condolences to Your Excellency, to the Members of the Grand Magistry and to all Members of the Order.

János Áder
President of the Republic of Hungary
