Angeles City officials commemorated the valor of former Chief Justice Jose Abad Santos through a wreath-laying ceremony led by Angeles City Mayor Carmelo Lazatin Jr.

The ceremony was held in front of Museo ng Angeles on May 7, where the erected monument for the World War II martyr stands tall.

Lazatin said the heroism of Abad Santos should serve as an inspiration for both the front liners and Angeleños to continue working together amidst the pandemic.

“Nawa’y maging inspirasyon po ang kagitingan ng martir at bayaning si Chief Justice Jose Abad Santos sa bawat Angeleño upang gawin ang bahagi sa pagsugpo ng COVID-19,” he said.

May 7 was declared a special non-working holiday in Angeles City and Pampanga through Republic Act 8815.

Abad Santos was a Kapampangan associate justice who used his expertise in the law to protect the people. His martyrdom lived on during World War II.

“Jose Abad Santos, a great Kapampangan hero, served as a reminder for the main essence of the law, to safeguard the Filipino people,” Lazatin said.
