Statement of Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar on the death of PACC Chairman Dante Jimenez

We extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to the family and loved ones of Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC) Chairman Dante Jimenez.

As the founding chairman of the Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption and co-chair of the Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD), PACC Chairman Jimenez’ conviction and dedication in fighting criminality and corruption in the country have been outstanding, apparent, and instrumental in the Duterte administration’s management and enforcement of our anti-corruption and anti-illegal drugs campaigns.

He will be missed by those in the government and civil society. His death is a loss in our crusade against crime and corruption.

May his deep commitment to uphold social justice, accountability, and transparency in governance inspire everyone, especially the people who will succeed him in his posts, for the welfare and progress of our nation.

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