Paramaribo, Suriname, Tuesday, March 24th, 2020: It was with great sadness that the Board and Secretariat of the Caribbean Association of Banks (CAB) Inc. received the news on the evening of Monday 23 March 2020 that Director Sean Husain had passed away. Director Husain took ill suddenly on Monday night, having been involved in calls earlier in the day with fellow CAB Board members.
