Veteran Journalist, Raoul Pantin

Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissessar has sent condolences to the family and friends of veteran journalist, Raoul Pantin- this after

news broke yesterday of the reporter’s sudden passing at his home.

In a statement issued to the media, Mrs. Persad Bissessar described Pantin as a journalist extraordinaire, whose writings were known

to the people of Trinidad and Tobago for the past 53 years.

She said the nation and the entire media fraternity have suffered a great loss, noting that Pantin was a man who positively influenced

the careers of many past and present members of the media fraternity during his time in both the print and electronic media.

The Prime Minister pointed out that through his writing, Pantin told of his experiences, including his testimony in 2012 at the

Commission of Enquiry into the events of 1990. She admitted that Pantin was never the same after the 1990 attempted coup, adding

that despite that, he continued to blaze the train, keeping the country informed about important issues, as well as nurturing the

young people who sought careers in journalism.
