Aubrey Bishop gave long and dedicated service to the people of Guyana

Dear Editor,
I wish to take this opportunity to extend my condolences to the wife and relatives of the late Professor Aubrey Bishop who died recently after a brief illness.

I had the privilege of knowing him both as a student and as a member of the University of Guyana Council, and was indeed touched by his humility and simplicity despite the several important positions he once held both at the academic and professional level.

Besides being a lecturer at the University, Professor Bishop served as Chief Justice in 1992 and later as Chancellor of the Judiciary in 1996. He was awarded the Cacique Crown of Honour and the Order of Roraima, a testimony to his long and dedicated service to the people of Guyana.

The University of Guyana, in particular the Faculty of Law and the entire legal fraternity of Guyana for that matter, have indeed lost an important resource.
May his soul rest in peace.

Yours faithfully,
Hydar Ally
