Tribute to M Chedly Fezzani, former Executive Secretary and founder member of the OSS


It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing away of Mr. Chedly Fezzani, former Executive Secretary and founder member of the OSS, on February 8, 2019 in Tunis.

His strong personality, keen intelligence, innate sense of mediation and total commitment to the Observatory have succeeded in making OSS a recognized and respected organization.

We will always remember his fatherly advice, his furry voice, his long silhouette, his hat... or his attachment to his beloved cigarettes. We already miss him!

On behalf of the OSS Secretariat, we would like to convey our heartfelt condolence to his Family, relatives, friends and Colleagues.

May the Almighty God bless his soul and rest in Eternal peace.
