Thursday, March 3, 2011- The Government of Saint Lucia expresses deep regret at the passing of Saint Luciaís second Prime Minister, Sir Allan Fitzgerald Laurent Louisy, SLC, PC, CBE, OFN on March 2nd, 2011. Sir Allan Louisy was born in the small fishing village of Laborie on September 5th, 1916 and went on to become one of Saint Luciaís prominent Sons through his service in the judiciary and politics.


Sir Allan was a well respected regional Jurist who served in senior capacities within a number of jurisdictions such as: Montserrat, Antigua, Dominica, Jamaica and his homeland Saint Lucia. He served as a Judge of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court until his retirement in 1973. Sir Allan served as Prime Minister of Saint Lucia for a brief period between July 1979 to May 1981. Sir Allan Fitzgerald Laurent Louisy was a simple and humble person who stood out among Saint Lucian leaders who placed Country before self.


The Government of Saint Lucia has issued an order requesting that the nationís flag should be flown half mast on all public buildings. Sir Allan qualifies for an Official Funeral and Government will ensure that the fullest respect is accorded to him as a former Prime Minister. The Ministry of External Affairs has also been asked to hold discussions with Sir Allanís family regarding arrangements for his funeral. Government offers sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Sir Allan as well as the people of his hometown village of Laborie.


Government will issue a statement shortly concerning official arrangements for the funeral of the late Sir Allan Fitzgerald Laurent Louisy.
