MANILA, Philippines — Former Senator Rodolfo Biazon is still confined in the hospital for pneumonia, Muntinlupa City Mayor Ruffy Biazon said, as he denied rumors of his father’s death.

“There is a social media post claiming that my dad, former Senator Rodolfo G. Biazon has passed away. We would like to inform the public that he is presently confined in the hospital, still being treated for pneumonia,” the local chief executive said in a Facebook post on Sunday night.


“We ask his friends and supporters to pray for his recovery.”


The mayor said the Biazon patriarch was admitted to hospital on May 21 due to “serious pneumonia”, and was intubated from May 22 until June 3.

“Papa is one tough Marine,” he said. “Still fighting it out.”

The 88-year-old Biazon served as Armed Forces of the Philippines chief of staff staff during the administration of then president Corazon Aquino.

He served as a senator from 1992 to 1995 and 1998 until 2010.
