The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is saddened by the death of one of its Foreign Services Officers, Mr. Alrae Ramsey, who was on study leave in Vienna, Austria, and who visited Turin, Italy, over the middle of last week. Mr Ramsey was employed with Ministry of Foreign Affairs since 9th December 2013.

Formerly, he was posted at the Bahamas Embassy in Port-au-Prince, Haiti as third Secretary/Vice-consul in 2016 – 2017. Then, last year, he was granted an In-Service Award to pursue a one-year Postgraduate Diploma programme in Diplomacy/International Relations and Languages at the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna in Austria for the period September 2018 – June 2019.

According to the Ministry, officials arrived in Turin today and met with officials from the police force. They confirmed that the body pulled from the river was, indeed, that of Mr. Alrae Ramsey.
