PM among those paying tribute to Sir Harcourt

Leader of the Opposition Mia Mottley’s name is third on the page, and she too paid tribute to the contribution Sir Harcourt made to the country in the different spheres.

On Friday, January 30, the body will also repose at the Democratic Labour Party Headquarters, George Street, Belleville, St. Michael, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Sir Harcourt will be accorded an official funeral on Saturday Bethel Methodist Church, Bay Street, St. Michael, beginning at 10 a.m. (YB)
