Rex Robles, the former Navy commodore who once led the Reform the Armed Forces Movement (RAM) and who became part of President Rodrigo Duterte’s panel to draft a federal constitution, passed away on Sunday.

His wife Marilyn said Robles died of cardiac arrest at 1:30 a.m. Sunday.

Robles was 75.

Robles was among the military men who plotted a coup against then-President Corazon Aquino.

But, he later apologized to Aquino.

Robles was also part of the Feliciano Commission, a fact-finding panel that investigated the Oakwood Mutiny of 2003.

Duterte, in 2018,  appointed Robles to be part of a panel tasked to review the 1987 Constitution and propose revisions for a federal charter.

“Great man. May God bless his soul,” retired Chief Justice Reynato Puno, the head of the constitutional review panel, said of Robles./Stacy Ang
