Araullo, who would have been 67 next month, was rushed to the Asian Hospital in Muntinlupa after he suffered a massive heart attack at about 8:30 am, but was dead on arrival, according to his brother Jose Araullo, accountant and banker.

Araullo became chairman of the Movement of Attorneys for Brotherhood, Integrity, Nationalism and Independence (MABINI) for nearly two years—from 1984 when then-chairman Augusto “Bobbit” Sanchez ran for the Batasan elections, until just before EDSA, when Araullo was succeeded by Fulgencio “Jun” Factoran.
