(Eagle News)–Carlos Celdran has died.

His wife Tesa said in a Facebook post on Tuesday, Oct. 8, that he died of “natural causes.”

He was 46 years old.

Celdran had been living in Spain since January of this year, months after the Supreme Court affirmed a Court of Appeals decision that sanctioned him for disrupting a Catholic service at the Manila Cathedral in 2010.

Celdran, an advocate for the reproductive health law, had barged in the cathedral while holding a “Damaso” sign.

“Damaso” was an evil priest in Jose Rizal’s  Noli Me Tangere.

Celdran had appealed the SC decision before he left for Spain.

In one of his last social media posts, Celdran, also a critic of President Rodrigo Duterte, tweeted “now die” while sharing an article in which President Duterte admitted he was suffering from myasthenia gravis, a disease that causes a weakening of the muscles.
