Statement by Brendan Howlin on death of Peter Sutherland

07 January 2018

It is with deep sadness that I’ve learnt of the premature passing of Peter Sutherland.

Peter was an Irish giant on the international stage but a man who never forgot where he came from.

While we may have had political differences, his commitment to internationalism and multilateralism through his career was consistent and deeply felt.

At this difficult moment I and the Labour Party send our condolences to his family, his friends and his political family.

May he rest in peace.
