“I am really sorry to hear the news of the passing of former President of the Court of Appeal which I deeply regret. I knew Mr. Guilhermino da Silva very well, he was humble and dedicated all his life to the development of the justice sector. When I was President of the Republic, we used to meet each other in the Presidential Palace, to share thoughts and ideas regarding the justice sector of our nation. Sadly, he was not able to finish his mandate, due to health problems, and he submitted his resignation letter to me, which I accepted so that he could concentrate fully on his health treatment and recovery. Unfortunately, God had another plan for him, so he let us early.
I would like to take this moment of grieving, on behalf of VIII Constitutional Government and on my one, to offer my deepest condolences to the bereaved family and we all pray that God will offer him an eternal resting place in Heaven” said Prime Minister Taur Matan Ruak. End
