Statement of Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar on the passing of Cebu City Rep. Raul del Mar

We extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to the family and loved ones, on the passing of Cebu City North District Representative Raul del Mar.

His commitment to his work as the representative of one of Cebu City’s districts will be remembered by the constituents he served during his tenure, particularly the underprivileged, as we remain affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

He has done much to serve and help the growth and development of his district on matters of infrastructures, social services, and poverty alleviation.

Being the son of a journalist and a manager of a local newspaper his dedication to promote and improve a free yet responsible journalism and media landscape is truly worth noting, which led to people hailing him as “Kampeon sa Medya”.

We pray for the eternal repose of his soul, and for his family and loved ones to find strength in this time of grief.
