ALEXANDRIA, VA – The International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC) released a statement today regarding the passing of Anne-Marie Lizin:
Everyone at ICMEC was saddened to learn of the passing of long-serving Board member and friend Anne-Marie Lizin. We extend our deepest condolences to Anne-Marie’s family and friends. A former President of the Belgian Senate, an ICMEC Board member since 1998, and a compelling voice for women and children everywhere, Anne-Marie always was a strong advocate for causes in which she believed. Her unflagging commitment to the rights of women and the need to eradicate human trafficking strongly complemented ICMEC’s goal of making the world a safer place for all children. She will be deeply missed.
