Daig si Duterte: Sonny Belmonte bags honorary law degree from Manuel L. Quezon University

Amid all the hullabaloo, it’s actually this veteran politiko who bagged an honoris causa this year.

Former Speaker now Quezon City Rep. Feliciano “Sonny” Belmonte, Jr. has been conferred an honorary degree in Bachelor of Laws from the Manuel L. Quezon University, which he accepted on Friday, April 21.

This comes as the University of the Philippines Board of Regents drew flak with its decision to offer the same commendation to President Rodrigo Duterte, citing tradition extended by the state-run school to leaders of the land.

Belmonte, a lawyer, looked particularly dashing while dressed in his black and blue toga. His daughter Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte proudly looked on, and even snapped photos of the momentous event. Congratulations!
