Much has happened in the last month.
President Benigno Simeon C. Aquino III, colloquially known as "Noynoy" and whose administration initiated the Arbitral proceedings against China under UNCLOS, has passed away last Thursday, June 24. FNI stands together with the country in mourning the passing of the former president. Despite its shortcomings, the initiatives of President Aquino's government contributed much to where the Philippines stands today, even equally confronting China before international law.
