The Management and Staff of the Philippine Muslim Today would like to announce that a legal luminary is now an additional fountain of words of wisdom and a judicial point of view after a retired Member of the Bench decided to join our set of dignified columnists who are among the cream of the crop.
Hence, at this juncture, may we introduce to you the great son of Masiu, Lanao del Sur. He is no other than the Honorable JUDGE PANAMBULAN “BING” MIMBISA, a Retired Presiding Judge, Regional Trial Court, Branch 37, General Santos City.

He studied at the Mindanao State University and later on took up his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) as a Dean‘s Lister at the University of Manila.
He was also known as the Most Exalted Betan being a member of the Beta Sigma Phi. He became also Editor-in-Chief of The Betan News aside from being the Best Debater.
In 1975 he took up his Bachelor of Laws from the University of Manila and later passed the Bar Examination administered by the Supreme Court of the Philippines in succeeding years.
