21/08/2012: Statement of Ambassador Cuisia on the Passing of Secretary Robredo

On behalf of the members of my family and the officers and staff of the Philippine Embassy in Washington, D.C., I extend our most sincere condolences on the tragic passing of Secretary Jesse Robredo.

Secretary Robredo was a devoted public servant.  He was a key advocate for political reform and good governance in the Aquino administration.  He leaves a legacy for others to emulate.

I call on the Filipino American community to join me in praying for the family of Secretary Robredo and the eternal repose of his soul.
