Jesse Robredo’s Plane Crashes at Sea

The private plane that carried Jesse Robredo crashed at sea on Saturday in Masbate.

There were three persons missing.

A private plane carrying Interior and Local Government Secretary Jessie Robredo and three others reportedly crashed along the vicinity off Barangay Ibingay in Masbate City late afternoon of Saturday.

Robredo is the current Secretary of Interior and Local Government of the Philippines and is a member of the Liberal Party.

On July 9, 2010, President Benigno Aquino III named Robredo as Secretary of the Interior and Local Government.

Robredo was formerly the Mayor of Naga City in Camarines Sur.

He is the first Filipino Mayor to receive the Ramon Magsaysay Award for Government Service in 2000.
