08/02/2011: Statement of Amb. Gaa on the Death of General Angelo Reyes

08 February 2011, Washington D.C. - I was shocked to learn of the sudden demise of General Angelo Reyes.  Our deepest sympathies go out to his family, relatives and friends.

The testimony of General Reyes in the ongoing investigation over corruption in the military could have helped clarify the issue.  Unfortunately, we will not be able to hear his side with his unexpected passing.

Our thoughts and prayers are with General Reyes’ loved ones in this time of grief and mourning. END
