On the death of Dr. Bernhard Lasotta

"The death of Dr. Bernhard Lasotta shocked us deeply. With him we are losing a long-standing supporter of our foundation and our work," said Philipp Keil, Managing Director of the Baden-Württemberg Development Cooperation Foundation (SEZ).

“As a long-standing member of the SEZ Board of Trustees and as development policy spokesman for the CDU parliamentary group in the Baden-Württemberg state parliament, Dr. Lasotta always worked for the interests of the foundation and the partnership-based cooperation between the people in Baden-Württemberg and countries in the global south. He will be missed by all of us.”

The CDU MP Dr. Berhard Lasotta has been a member of the SEZ Board of Trustees since 2001, including two years as a deputy member. From 2008 to 2016, Lasotta was deputy chairman of the board of trustees.

Bernhard Lasotta has been a member of the Baden-Württemberg state parliament since 2001. There he represented the Neckarsulm constituency.
