MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte visited late Tuesday night the wake of former Senate President Aquilino “Nene” Pimentel Jr. at Heritage Park in Taguig City.

The President went straight to the wake after getting back from his Japan trip, which had been cut short after he complained of pain in his spine due to a motorcycle accident last week.


Pimentel died less than a week after he was put in an intensive care unit (ICU) last Oct. 14. He was 85 years old.
