Brig Joseph Theodore being laid to rest today…

Joseph Theodore

Brig Joseph Theodore.

Traffic restrictions in the areas of St Clair, Tragarete Road and the Lapeyrouse Cemetery between 1 pm and 3 pm today.

The restrictions are being put in place to accommodate the funeral procession of Brig Joseph Theodore.

Theodore’s funeral will take place at 10.30 am at  St Finbar’s RC Church, Morne Coco Road, Diego Martin, before a military procession along Tragarete Road to the Lapeyrouse Cemetery.

A release from the T&T Coast Guard stated that following the procession, as is customary with military-led funerals there will be a volley of uniformed gunshots coming from the cemetery, therefore the public is advised to be guided accordingly.

The Defence Force has invited members of the public and businesses along the route to line the streets to pay their final respects to Theodore.

Theodore died of a heart attack two Saturdays ago.

He led the charge against the Jamaat-al-Muslimeen in the 1990 attempted coup, as he was the serving Chief of Defence Staff between 1990 and 1991.
