August 1, 2022
The Chief Justice and Associate Justices of the Supreme Court lead the entire Judiciary in mourning the passing of former President Fidel V. Ramos. To the family of President Ramos, we offer our sincerest condolences.
President Ramos was a true defender of freedom and democracy who had shown courage and loyalty to the country with his years in public service, including as a veteran of several military campaigns. He was also a visionary President, who set out important social and economic reforms which Filipinos enjoy even up to this time.
In addition, we in the Judiciary will always remember President Ramos as a proponent of justice and judicial reform. During his presidency, he consistently pledged his support to the Judiciary’s campaign for modernization and judicial excellence. His commitment to justice helped strengthen the Judiciary.
To honor his memory and in recognition of his services to the nation, the Philippine Flag in all courthouses shall be flown at half-mast.
Rest in peace, Mr. President.
