House Senior Deputy Majority Leader and Ilocos Norte 1st district Rep. Sandro Marcos and Agimat Party-list Rep. Bryan Revilla visited the wake of John Paul "JP" Espiritu Pabalan on Thursday, March 23 at Governor’s Drive Bancal in Carmona, Cavite.
Pabalan was a youth leader of the BBM-Sara campaign last year. He was 25.
While at the wake, Marcos and Revilla personally condoled with the youth leader’s parents, Melchor and Mayumi, and then handed over financial aid from President Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. and Speaker Martin Romualdez.
The Lakas-Christian Muslim Democrats (Lakas-CMD) launched the #StopTheHate campaign last year after Pabalan--who was a person with disability (PWD)--got bashed on social media for supporting the election campaign of Marcos and Sara Duterte.
Pabalan passed away from a lingering illness last March 17.
