The Heads of Mission offer our deepest condolences to the bereaved family and the Government and people of Jamaica on the death of former Prime Minister, the Most Honourable Edward Seaga, a visionary leader and one of the pioneers of post-independence development in Jamaica.

Mr Seaga was one of the founding fathers who framed the Jamaican Constitution, 1961-1962, and for over 40 years, contributed immensely to the establishment of key institutions and initiatives that have anchored Jamaica's development and democracy. We mourn his passing alongside his family and the people of Jamaica.
