Joseph Emanuel Triay, QC. died yesterday aged 80. He became the senior partner of the law firm Triay & Triay in 1972 and was appointed Queen’s Counsel in 1982, He was the son of one of the founders, the late S.P.Triay, KC. and was particularly successful in the area of litigation.

He was called to the Bar in 1952 England & Wales, and Gibraltar,

Known for his different views on the future of Gibraltar, which were expressed in the sixties and seventies, He was part of the group calling itself “The Doves” which wrote a controversial letter to the “Gibraltar Chronicle” in March 1968 urging Gibraltar to seek settlement with Spain. The response was violent rioting and his yacht was burnt. His group formed itself into a political party, the Party for the Autonomy of Gibraltar, which stood for election but failed to achive any popularity,

The party printed and published newspaper the ‘Calpe News’ for some years.

Recognising that his political views would not be accepted, he concentrated on building up his highly successful legal firm and limiting his political activity to giving occasional interviews to visiting journalists. JE as he was referred to was aways an aproachable affable character who helped create the Gibraltar of today, even if it was not quite the way he originally envisioned it.
