Politikos pay tribute to Leticia Ramos-Shahani: Selfless public servant, patriot
Politikos have flocked to social media to pay tribute to former Senator and seasoned diplomat Leticia Ramos-Shahani who passed away on Monday.

The sister of former President Fidel Ramos was earlier appointed by President Duterte as member of the Manila Economic and Cultural Office board in Taiwan.
My thoughts & prayers go to the family of former Senator Letty Ramos Shahani. She will always be remembered for championing women's rights.
