  • ON THE HELICOPTER CRASH INCIDENT INVOLVING PHILIPPINE AMBASSADOR TO PAKISTAN HON. DOMINGO D. LUCENARIO, JR.

     

    In Memoriam

    The Philippine Embassy Team joins our colleagues in the Department of Foreign Affairs and the Philippine Foreign Service Posts in offering our heartfelt condolences and prayers to the family and loved ones of Ambassador Domingo "Doy" Lucenario, Jr., who was among those who died in the tragic helicopter crash in Pakistan. His wholehearted devotion to duty and sacrificial service to our beloved country and people will always be remembered.

     

    The Department of Foreign Affairs is deeply saddened by the untimely demise of Philippine Ambassador to Pakistan Hon. Domingo D. Lucenario, Jr. due to a helicopter crash incident in the Naltar Valley area of Pakistan.

    Ambassador Lucenario was a career ambassador who served the Philippine Government for over 35 years. During his term as Ambassador to Pakistan, relations between the Philippines and Pakistan have enjoyed a robust partnership in various areas of cooperation.

    Ambassador Lucenario was also the Philippines’ non-resident Ambassador to Afghanistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.

    A lawyer by profession, he served the Department in various capacities including assignments in Germany, Hong Kong, Australia, and as former Philippine Ambassador to Kenya with concurrent jurisdiction to 12 African nations. He was the Philippine Permanent Representative to the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and the United Nations Human Settlements Program (UN Habitat). He also served as Deputy Chief of Presidential Protocol under the Ramos Administration aside from various positions in the Home Office.

    Ambassador Lucenario was one of the few career Filipino diplomats who had the rare distinction of having been awarded by the President of the Philippines with three (3) major Presidential Awards, namely: the Order of Sikatuna Award with the rank of Datu (Gold level) (2009), the Order of Lakandula Award with the rank of Grand Officer (Maringal na Pinuno) (2008), and the Gawad Mabini Award with the rank of Grand Officer (Dakilang Kamanong) (2008).

    The Department of Foreign Affairs offers its deepest sympathies and condolences to the family of Ambassador Lucenario at this time of mourning. He is survived by his wife, Lawyer Nida Arada Lucenario and 3 children. Ambassador Lucenario was 54 years old.

    Manny Pacquiao

    The Philippine Embassy in Wellington, New Zealand calls on Filipinos and friends from New Zealand, Fiji, Tonga, Samoa and Cook Islands to continue upholding our beloved Manny Pacquiao in prayers as our GREAT AND LOVING GOD guides and guards him, holds his fists and strengthens him through this long awaited boxing match with Floyd Mayweather. As Manny Pacquiao says, this fight is for the Filipino people and for the GLORY OF GOD.

    “My message to the Filipino people is, ‘Thank you to our Lord for allowing me to become an instrument to help bring honor to the Philippines and all of us Filipinos, and of course thank you to the support or our fellow Filipinos and their prayers.’” – Manny Pacquiao
