It was with deep sadness that we were informed concerning the passing of former U.S. Senator Paul Sarbanes, who was a prominent member of the Greek American community for many decades.
Paul Sarbanes, during his long service in the US Congress, first as a Representative and later as a Senator, served his homeland valiantly and with self-sacrifice. At the same time, he championed major initiatives for promoting the values and positions of global Hellenism. Salient among the causes he championed was the imposition of a U.S. arms embargo on Turkey following the invasion of Cyprus.
We express our deep condolences to his loved ones.
