The Supreme Court (SC) on Thursday ordered all flags in courthouses nationwide lowered to half-staff to honor former President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III, who passed away at the age of 61.



Three of the 14 incumbent justices are Aquino appointees: Estela Perlas Bernabe, Marvic Leonen, and Alfredo Benjamin Caguioa.

Earlier in the day, Leonen paid tribute to Aquino, saying it was an honor to have served with him in government.

Prior to his appointment to the SC in November 2012, Leonen served as Aquino’s chief negotiator in the peace talks with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.



Aquino was the country’s president from 2010 to 2016. -MDM, GMA News
