SULTAN SULU, JAMALUL KIRAM III DIES

MANILA, Philippines (Updated) – Jamalul Kiram III, leader of the Sultanate of Sulu, died Sunday morning, October 20, of organ failure at the Philippine Heart Center in Quezon City, his spokesperson Abraham Idjirani said.
He was 75, his daughter Princess Jacel Kiram said in a DZBB radio interview.
Idjirani said relatives will still discuss the funeral arrangements Sunday morning but Kiram made a wish before he passed away to be buried in the traditional capital of the Sultanate of Sulu, in Maimbung, Sulu.

He asked his siblings to continue the Sultanate's fight to reclaim Sabah, Idjirani said, adding that Kiram spoke with his brother Raja Agbimuddin Kiram, who led the Sabah standoff, over the phone a day before he died.
Several followers of the Sultanate of Sulu are presently facing terrorism-related charges in Malaysia over the incident.
In 2007, Kiram ran for senator under then president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's Team Unity slate.
Prior to his senatorial, Kiram was a member of the Legislative and Executive Advisory Council (LEDAC) on the Sabah Claim. 
He was also Arroyo's Presidential Adviser on Muslim Royalties' Concern.
