Thursday, September 23, 2004 - Prime Minister Dr. Kenny D. Anthony has expressed the collective sympathy of the Government and people of St. Lucia to the family of the late former Prime Minister, Mr. Winston Cenac, QC who died on Wednesday, September 22, 2004.

A prominent local attorney for several decades, Mr. Cenac served as Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs in the Labour Party administration following the 1979 General Elections.

Mr. Cenac, who died at age 79, also served as Prime Minister in the same administration, following the resignation of then Prime Minister Allan Louisy.

A long-standing member of the St. Lucia Bar Association, the late Mr. Cenac participated in the Constitutional Talks in Britain prior to the islandís attainment of Independence.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Anthony has confirmed that, as a former Prime Minister and Head of Government, Mr. Cenac is entitled to a State Funeral, which he will be accorded with full honours.

The Prime Minister is expected to make a formal statement later on behalf of his Cabinet colleagues.
