Laura Sewlal-Khan, the widow of late energy minister Franklin Khan, has revealed that his funeral on Saturday will be a family-only affair.
Khan’s funeral will be held at 10 am on Saturday at the Aramalaya Presbyterian Church in Tunapuna, following which, his body will be taken under the military escort of an official funeral to Radix Cemetery in Mayaro for burial under Anglican rites.
Mrs Sewlal-Khan said that at the service, tributes will be delivered via live-stream by the Prime Minister, Finance Minister Colm Imbert and Planning Minister Camille Robinson-Regis.
This is in recognition of a ten-person limit on attendance at funerals under current Covid19 protocols.
Khan died on April 17 of a heart attack.
Sewlal-Khan said Khan’s well-wishers could send flowers to Belgroves funeral home in Tacarigua.
