Statement of Sen. Francis Pangilinan, Partido Liberal president, on the death of former Rep. and National Security Adviser Roilo Golez

Sadness and shock overwhelm us with the news of the death of former Representative and National Security Adviser Roilo Golez.

He was a picture of vibrant life and untiring public service until his very last days. He was out of politics, but he continued to touch base not only with his former constituents, but Filipinos all over the country with his journeys to different places.

Rep. Golez is a true freedom fighter, being one of the few solid voices defending the country’s territorial rights.

“Di ka pasisiil,” his motto in his social media account, truly fits him.

Our thoughts and prayers are one with his family and loved ones.
