Statement on the Passing of DILG Secretary Jesse M. Robredo

A sad day for Filipinos. I will always remember and be thankful to Sec. Jesse Robredo for personally albeit quietly helping me during my difficult time while in hiding.

Not known to all, he tried his level best to convince DOJ Sec. de Lima to comply with the Court of Appeals decision reversing the Manila Regional Trial Court’s probable cause ruling against me.

He was so real and natural as a person in dealing with people, close friends or not.
