据多家新闻报道，菲律宾前总统阿基诺三世(Benigno Aquino III)在长期患病后于周四凌晨去世。
Aquino, 61, served as the country’s 15th president from 2010 to 2016, and was succeeded in office by the incumbent, Rodrigo Duterte.
According to ABS-CBN News, he was hospitalised early on Thursday.
But he had been undergoing dialysis for at least five months and had recently undergone a heart operation.
“It is with profound sadness that I learned this morning of the passing of former President Benigno S. Aquino III,” Supreme Court Justice Marvic Leonen, who was appointed by Aquino in 2012, said in a statement.
“今天早上得知前总统贝尼尼奥·s·阿基诺三世(Benigno S. Aquino III)去世的消息，我怀着深切的悲痛，”2012年由阿基诺任命的最高法院法官马维克·莱昂宁(Marvic Leonen)在一份声明中说。
“I knew him to be a kind man, driven by his passion to serve our people. I saw him carry his title with dignity and integrity,” added Leonen, who had also served as Aquino’s peace negotiator with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.
It was during Aquino’s administration that Manila took on China and filed a case before the Court of Arbitration at The Hague over the South China Sea dispute.
正是在阿基诺执政期间，马尼拉对中国展开了挑衅，并就南海争端向海牙仲裁法庭(Court of Arbitration at the Hague)提起了诉讼。
Aquino is the only son of the late former President Corazon Aquino, who was swept into power following the ouster of dictator, Ferdinand Marcos in 1986.
Aquino’s father and namesake, former senator Benigno Aquino Jr, was killed at the Manila international airport upon his return from exile in 1983. The assassination was seen as an impetus for the popular revolt and Marcos’ ouster three years later.
