The family of former Sen. Benigno Aquino has formally turned down an investigative board's request to exhume the opposition leader's body nearly a year after he was assassinated, his son said Sunday.

In a telephone interview, Benigno Aquino III told AP his mother Corazon sent a letter to the board Saturday turning down the board's request.
