Share post:

WASHINGTON – The Secretary General of the Organisation of American States (OAS), José Miguel Insulza, has offered his condolences to the people of Barbados after learning of the death of Prime Minister David Thompson. “On behalf of all the Member States of our Organization, I extend our deepest condolences to Prime Minister Thompson’s wife, Marie-Josephine Mara, and their three daughters, as well as to the people of Barbados. Today, not only Barbados, but all of the Americas, lost a dedicated statesman and a distinguished public servant,” Insulza said. The Secretary General recalled that Prime Minister Thompson had devoted his life to improving and expanding social services and creating opportunities for economic growth in Barbados.
The head of the hemispheric Organization pointed out that, as a central figure in the Democratic Labour Party, his legacy would always be remembered. “The OAS will honour Prime Minister Thompson’s life-long dedication to democracy at the next meeting of the OAS Permanent Council,” the Secretary General said.
