ROSEAU, Dominica – Dominica’s sixth president Dr. Nicholas Liverpool has died.

The 80-year-old passed away Monday in Miami where he had been receiving medical treatment.

Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit said Liverpool’s death has robbed the country of “a most revered ambassador for and of this country”.

Liverpool served as president from October 2003 to September 2012.

“Just over six months ago the nation gathered enmasse to salute and celebrate the life and times of Dr. Nicholas Liverpool. We recognized then, as we do now, that this was a Dominican of extraordinary talent and achievement; yet a humble gentleman who had a moment and a listening ear for everyone with whom he came into contact,” Skerritt wrote on his Facebook page.

He said all flags in Dominica would be flown as half mast from today until the day after Liverpool’s burial.
