The staff at the Centre for Human Rights, Faculty of Law, University of Pretoria, is deeply affected and distressed by the sudden and tragic passing of our respected and beloved colleague, friend, mentor and teacher Prof Christof Heyns. 

The Centre will therefore be closed on Wednesday 31 March 2021 for a day of quiet reflection, remembering and honouring Christof. 

We suspend all classes and prior-arranged activities on that day to allow us to share our reflections, to remember how his brilliant life touched each of us, and to support each other.

The Centre will resume its activities on 1 April 2021.
