The Philippine Sportswriters Association shall give FIDE Honorary President Florencio Campomanes their highest honor, the Lifetime Achievement Award at ceremonies today. Campo founded the Philippine Chess Federaiton in 1956 and became FIDE Zone President, Deputy President and President from 1982 to 1995. He celebrates his 80th birthday on 22nd February.

Last December, the Philippine Supreme Court unanimously cleared him of all charges in the case filed against him ten years ago. The fine was a matter of around 100 Euro but Campomanes refused to accept the verdict. `I took no short cuts and for ten years maintained my sanity and sense of humour,` Campomanes said.
