[ 376 words|2018.11.16|英字 (English) ]

President Rodrigo Duterte has signed into law a bill declaring September 2 of every year a special non-working holiday in Ifugao province.

Republic Act No. 11120, which was approved on October 30, calls for the commemoration of the surrender of General Tomoyuki Yamashita, commander of the then Japanese Imperial Army in the Philippines in Kiangan, Ifugao.

The law tasked the Provincial Government of Ifugao, in coordination with the municipal government of Kiangan, the National Historical Commission of the Philippines, the Philippine Veterans Affairs Office, and the Military Shrines Services, to lead appropriate and meaningful commemorative programs and activities to be participated by officials and employees of the national provincial and municipal government agencies and instrumentalities, and civic, religious, non-government, business and civil society organizations.

This is to give significance and honor the heroes and heroines who contributed to the Philippines' liberation from the Japanese forces, the Act read.

The new law shall take effect 15 days after its publication in the Official Gazette or in a newspaper of general circulation.
