Former Defense Secretary Angelo Reyes, who headed the military from 2001 to 2003 and was recently accused in a high-profile congressional hearing of pocketing money from the armed forces, died this morning after sustaining a gunshot wound in the chest in an apparent suicide attempt.

Health Secretary Enrique Ona said Reyes was brought to the Quirino Memorial Medical Center in Quezon City at 7:30 a.m. with a bullet wound in the left part of his chest and was pronounced dead at 8:32 a.m.




Reports said Reyes shot himself in front of his mother's grave at the Loyola Memorial Park in Marikina City. His wound reportedly came from a .45 caliber pistol.

Reyes visited his mother's tomb with 2 children and 2 aides at the Loyola Memorial Park in Marikina City early this morning before the apparent suicide. He asked his children and aides to leave him at the tomb and then a shot was heard according to eye witness.

    I salute Gen Reyes for taking the warrior's way. The bushido code of feudal Japan. This was the honorable thing to do. Sure, during his term of office, he may not have stolen anything. He was not ganid, he was not suwapang. But when he retired as AFP Chief, did he or did he not receive the PABAON?
