Prime Minister Hon. Dr. Kenny D. Anthony has expressed his condolences to the island’s first Ambassador to the Republic of China (Taiwan), His Excellency Ambassador Hubert Emmanuel.
Mr. Emmanuel’s wife, Myrle, passed away on Tuesday evening in Taipei, after having struggled with illness for some time.
Prime Minister Anthony has since spoken directly with the ambassador via telephone to offer his sympathies. It is understood that Mrs. Emmanuel’s remains will be cremated.
Mrs. Emmanuel is survived by her husband and their three daughters, one of whom is studying in the Republic of China (Taiwan).
The ambassador assumed his present duties when he formally presented his credentials to President Ma Ying-jeou in November 2015.
