    An official funeral will be held tomorrow for the late Franklin Khan.

    Confirmation of this comes via a release from the National Security Ministry.

    Mr Khan, who was Energy Minister, passed away on April 17th.

    The Ministry did not reveal details, however according to a Newsday report, the service will be held at 10am at the Aramalaya Presbyterian Church in Tunapuna, after which his body will receive a military escort to Radix Cemetery in Mayaro for burial.

    The report also stated that it will be a family-only affair, with tributes from ministers to be streamed.
