Paalam, Senator Nene

The Human Rights Violations Victims’ Memorial Commission (HRVVMC) is in grief with the loss of a noble man, Senator Aquilino “Nene” Pimentel, Jr. He was a genuine public servant who dedicated his life for the Filipino people. In his accomplished career, he did not mind the challenges and criticisms that came along the work he was doings as Minister of Local Government and Legislator. Sen. Nene fought against the Martial Law atrocities despite the consequences. Imprisoned four times, he remained fearless and committed to the fight for freedom and democracy.


In the recent engagement of Sen. Nene with HRVVMC’s Executive Director, Mr. Chuck Crisanto, he shared that the he looked forward to going to the Freedom Memorial Museum’s inauguration. We are saddened that he will not be able to grace us with his presence on the inauguration of the museum, but we will hold on to his legacy of courage and dedication in fulfilling the mandate to memorialize the human rights violations victims of Martial Law Era.


As we continue with our work and mandate, Sen. Nene’s life will serve as an inspiration that the road to freedom may not be easy, especially when up against the forces of power, but the fight is definitely worth fighting for.


Maraming salamat Sen. Nene sa iniwan ninyong mga ala-ala ng katapangan para sa kalayaan at demokrasya.

Nene Pimentel

Update: 

Almost 4 decades ago, the AVSECOM (Aviation Security Command) van was used to transport the assassinated body of the late Sen. Ninoy Aquino at the tarmac of then Manila International Airport, now Ninoy Aquino International Airport or NAIA.

 

Years later, the AVSECOM van was found dilapidated and vandalized until it was turned over to MemCom (Human Rights Violations Victims’ Memorial Commission).
