FORMER PRESIDENT DR. NICHOLAS J O LIVERPOOL
Roseau, Dominica – Monday, June 1, 2015 – The Government of Dominica has declared a period of mourning as a mark of respect for the late Dr. Nicholas Joseph Orville Liverpool, former President of the Commonwealth of Dominica. The Dominican flag shall be flown at half-staff on all public buildings in the state during the period of mourning commencing Tuesday, June 2, 2015.
Dr. Nicholas J O Liverpool served as President of Dominica from October 2, 2003 to September 17, 2012 after a distinguished career as law lecturer, judge and diplomat.
Prime Minister of Dominica the Honourable Roosevelt Skerrit has described the former President as one of the most distinguished Dominicans.
“Dominica is very much the poorer, with the death today of former President, His Excellency, Dr. Nicholas Liverpool. Dominica has lost a cherished son… I, personally, have lost a friend and mentor. Death has robbed us of a most revered ambassador for and of this country. Just over six months ago the nation gathered enmasse to salute and celebrate the life and times of Dr. Nicholas Liverpool. We recognized then, as we do now, that this was a Dominican of extraordinary talent and achievement; yet a humble gentleman who had a moment and a listening ear for everyone with whom he came into contact. I wish on behalf of the citizens of Dominica, my family and on my own behalf to extend sympathy to his wife and family,” Prime Minister Skerrit stated.
Liverpool, Nicolas. “His Excellency Dr. Nicholas J. O. Liverpool D.A.H. O.C.C.”. His Excellency Dr. NichoOffice of the President of Dominicalas J. O. Liverpool …
