The Democratic National Alliance (DNA) on Friday, offered condolences to the family of fallen Chief Justice Stephen Isaacs, who passed away at Doctors Hospital at 11 o’clock Friday morning.
He was 63.
The party, in a statement from DNA Deputy Leader Arinthia Komolafe said, “We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Chief Justice Stephen Isaacs.”
“It was only a few weeks ago that the late Chief Justice was confirmed in his substantive post,” she said.
“Bahamians had looked forward to more years of distinguished service by this luminary and true patriot. Unfortunately, this was not to be and we have lost a brilliant jurist who contributed enormously to the development of the legal profession in The Bahamas.”
Members of the legal fraternity, she said, will remember him as a respected gentleman who left an “indelible mark” on the judiciary and on “our jurisprudence”.
“A grateful nation salutes him for his service and dedication over the years,” the statement continued.
“On behalf of the Democratic National Alliance, we offer our deepest condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Chief justice Stephen Isaacs. Our thoughts and prayers are with them during this difficult time.
“May his soul rest in peace.”
