ST. GEORGE’S, GRENADA, April 9, 2014 – GIS: On behalf of the Government and People of Grenada, Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Mitchell, and Acting Prime Minister, Hon. Elvin Nimrod, extend heartfelt sympathy to the family of ANR Robinson, Former President and Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago.

Mr. Robinson died at St Clair Medical Hospital in Trinidad on Wednesday April 9th, 2014.

ANR Robinson will forever be remembered for his resilience displayed during an attempt to overthrow his government in July, 1990. During that coup attempt, Robinson was beaten and shot in the leg, and was subsequently confined to a wheelchair for several years.

Mr. Robinson will also be remembered for his proposal that ultimately resulted in the establishment of the International Criminal Court.

Indeed, Mr. Robinson’s career has been one of distinction since he is the only person to serve as both Prime Minister (1986-1991) and President (1997-2003) of Trinidad and Tobago.

The region has lost a true man of service, and for that we mourn with his family, friends and the entire nation of Trinidad and Tobago.

May his soul rest in peace.
