Statement by His Excellency Irwin LaRocque Secretary-General of CARICOM on the passing of A.N.R. Robinson former Prime Minister and former President of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago
I am extremely saddened by his passing. Even though he had been hospitalised, it still came as a shock.
The Caribbean Community has lost one of its truly great sons who will always be remembered for his historic role at the landmark Grand Anse Meeting in 1989, where the decision was taken to significantly deepen our integration.
To his family, and the Government and people of Trinidad and Tobago, I convey my deepest condolences.
