It is with the deepest sadness that we learned about the passing of Eduardo Mieles Viteri, who was President of the Ecuadorian Chess Federation, as well as a member of the FIDE Executive Board. Eduardo was also an International Arbiter and member of the Confederation of Chess for America.
We are very thankful for his dedication and his contributions to promoting chess from all these institutions, and we would like to express our sincerest condolences to his relatives, his loved ones, and all the members of the chess community in Ecuador. In particular, our thoughts are with his son, the International Master Daniel Mieles Palau.
