Harold Pinter - Statement of Condolence
The Peru Support Group would like to express our condolences to the family of Nobel Prize-winning playwright and PSG sponsor Harold Pinter. It was with great sadness that we learned of his death over the Christmas period. Harold Pinter had strong interests and involvement in the political destinies of the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean for many decades.
