Ashton Chase dies


Message from President Irfaan Ali on the passing of Mr Ashton Chase, SC

“I have learnt with great sadness of the passing of Mr. Ashton Chase SC.

“His death represents an incalculable loss to our nation. His name and contributions will forever be etched in our country’s political, labour and legal history.  He made an exceptional contribution to Guyana’s nationalist struggle and political history and was the last surviving member of the Political Affairs Committee established in 1946. He was among our finest legal minds and was a pillar of our country’s  early trade union activism, authoring the most authoritative work on out trade union history.

“I extend my deepest condolences to his bereaved family.”
