It is with the deepest grief that the Secretariat of the American Party of Labor reports that we received the following communique from our comrades of the Dominican Communist Labor Party:
Comrades and friends:
With much sadness and pain, we inform you that Comrade Roberto Sánchez, a member of the Central Committee of our Communist Labor Party (PCT), has left us. Leader of the Frente Amplio; former leader of the Federation of Dominican Students; former president of the College of Engineers and Architects; UASD professor, Comrade Roberto was an excellent revolutionary, great human being and great friend.
A great loss!
The comrade suffered from pancreatic cancer with liver metastases. He was admitted to the clinic several days ago. And he has passed away.
A hard blow. We have lost one of our most qualified cadres. Forty-five uninterrupted years of revolutionary militancy. A true communist
The funerals will start tomorrow at the Blandino Funeral Home.
With much pain; but with firmness and in struggle!
Political Bureau of the PCT.
The American Party of Labor, its Secretariat and its cadre, join our hearts with our Dominican sisters and brothers in honoring the passing of an exemplary revolutionary. Sleep well, Comrade Roberto, you have earned your rest. Our cause is immortal and our victory certain.
Camarada Roberto Sanchez – ¡PRESENTE!
