      I am offering my personal condolences to the bereaved family and prayers for the eternal repose of the soul of the most admired lawyer, congressman, senator and brilliant human rights defender Joker P. Arroyo. He will always be remembered by us as a genuine patriot, a real fighter, a human rights defender and a great Filipino.

    2. I offer my condolences to the bereaved family of the late senator and prayers for the eternal repose of his soul…I remember the good senator is one of two, who did not use their pork during their stint in the senate. The other one is Senator Lacson.
