Senior Counsel Clifton Mortimer Llewellyn John, who had a legal career spanning over 50 years and had been one of the campaigners for Guyana’s independence, passed away yesterday morning.
He was 95 and would have celebrated his next birthday in just under two weeks.
The People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) confirmed his death. John had held multiple ministerial portfolios during the early PNC-led government. He had also been the party’s Assistant General Secretary at one point.
