Prime Minister signs book of condolence

Prime Minister Freundel Stuart today signed the Book of Condolence at the Cuban Embassy in honour of the memory of revolutionary Cuban leader Fidel Castro, who died last Friday.

The condolence book was opened this afternoon, and will remain open until Sunday.

Barbadians may visit the Embassy at #13 Edge Hill Heights, St Thomas, between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. to sign the book.

In paying tribute to Castro over the weekend, the Prime Minister said: “The death of the former President of the Republic of Cuba marks the passing of an indomitable figure who changed the course of history in his country and the region.

“Fidel Castro Ruz represents as few others do, a symbol of anti-imperialism and continuous struggle for independence. He inspired many revolutionaries around the world to fight for their ideals. His support for the anti-apartheid struggle is a dimension of his legacy that will not be forgotten,” Stuart said.
