The Disability Movement expresses its deep condolences for the decease of former Commissioner Jacques Barrot

8 December 2014

In the frame of the sad news that the former Commissioner, Jacques Barrot, passed away last Wednesday, EDF would like to express its respect and recognition for Jacque Barrot’s engagement with the disability movement and his commitment to promote the rights of citizens with disabilities.

Jacques Barrot has been a former Commissioner in charge of Transport and then of Justice. The regulation on Air Passengers' Rights that was unanimously adopted by the European Council in July 2006, became a reality thanks to Jacque Barrot’s full and active commitment. This paved the way for other regulations for the rights of passengers travelling by sea or rail.
