On the demise of Senator Ramon Revilla Sr.

The Palace expresses its deep condolences to the Revilla family for the loss of its patriarch, former Senator Ramon Revilla, at age 93.

Former Senator Revilla, popularly known as Hari ng Agimat, was a pillar of the movie industry prior to his entry to politics. As an elected Senator, he was recognized as the Father of the Public Works Act for his authorship of Republic Act 8150, or the Public Works and Highways Infrastructure Program Act of 1995.

We share the grief of the Revilla clan, and as tributes pour to honor the life and legacy of this respected movie icon and public servant, we pray that the Almighty grant Mr. Revilla eternal repose.
