Statement of Senate Majority Leader Juan Miguel F. Zubiri on the death of former Senate President Aquilino Pimentel, Jr.

I am very sad for the loss of a great Filipino Statesman who fought and risked his life for the many advocacies that he believed in. The death of our former Senate President Aquilino Pimentel Jr is a great loss for Mindanao and the Nation as he is one of those I consider as one of the great pillars of our country's democracy in the last 50 years. Im honored to have had the opportunity to work with him in the 14th Congress and even if we had some differences then, he still treated me professionally and mentored me on the issues of Human rights and above all the rule of Law. As a Mindanaoan i am truly saddened with this development. May God bless his soul.
