CONDOLENCES ON THE DEATH OF NOOR HASSANALI, FORMER PRESIDENT, TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO
 

 

It is with deep regret that the Caribbean Community notes the death of the former President of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, Mr. Noor Hassanali.

Mr. Hassanali served as President during one of the most trying times in the recent history of his country. Throughout it all he carried out his duties with dignity, commitment and statesmanship which earned great respect for his Office and himself. His quiet demeanour, humility and unobtrusive style endeared him to the citizens of his country, a country which he also served as prosecutor, magistrate and Appeal Court judge. His passing is a tremendous loss to the entire nation.

On behalf of the Caribbean Community, the CARICOM Secretariat and on my own behalf, I express sincere condolences to the wife, children and family of Mr. Hassanali as well as to the government and people of Trinidad and Tobago.
