Duterte Plan To Give Marcos A Hero’s Burial


Presumptive president-elect Rodrigo Duterte wants to  give late dictator Ferdinand Marcos a hero’s burial. Duterte who won the 2016 presidential election by a landslide vote, said on Monday that he would allow Marcos to be buried at the Heroes’ Cemetery in Manila, in what would be another big win for the dictator’s family as it cements a remarkable political comeback.

Duterte said “I will allow the burial of President Marcos sa Libingan ng mga Bayani not because he is a hero but because he was a Filipino soldier, period.”

“Yang issue sa burial ni President Ferdinand Marcos sa Libingan ng mga Bayani has created division among our people… I am sure that I will erase among our people one hatred,” he added.

Since he was campaigning for the presidency, Duterte has expressed his approval to bury Marcos in the said burial grounds.
