Portugal mourns the loss of a giant Dr Jorge Sampaio (1939-2021) who was President from 1996 to 2006. Prior to that he was Mayor of Lisbon. A lawyer, an exceptional man who fought for justice and good causes not only in Portugal but also internationally, a president to the Portuguese people regardless of one’s politics and position he was open to all, an exemplary politician with a long career in politics, an old school gentleman. He was 81 years old. Condolences to his family and may he rest in peace.
