Antonio Manuel Lagdameo arrived in London to assume his duties as Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of the Philippines to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Lagdameo and his wife, Maria Linda Floirendo-Lagdameo, were welcomed at the Heathrow Airport Terminal by David Pearey, Special Representative of the Foreign Secretary, Protocol Directorate, Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO); Chargé d’Affaires Gilberto Asuque; Consul General Senen Mangalile; and Administrative Officer Maria Theresa Jesusa Albano.

    1. Tonette Lagdameo was never a Davao representative. His son, who is married to actress Dawn Zulueta, was. As to being 2016 campaign manager for Bongbong Marcos, better scrutinize that because, from where we sit, Jonathan De La Cruz was Bongbong’s campaign manager.
