Vice President Leni Robredo releases statement in regards to President Rodrigo Duterte's decision to end the long issue as to former President Ferdinand Marcos' burial in the Libingan ng mga Bayani.
She expresses her strong opposition on the decision of the President saying:
"We strongly oppose the decision to bury former President Ferdinand Marcos in the Libingan ng mga Bayani.
How can we allow a hero's burial for a man who has plundered our country and was responsible for the death and disappearance of many Filipinos? Those who have greatly committed crimes and moral turpitude to the Filipino people cannot be buried in the Libingan ng mga Bayani."
She hopes that the choice would be reconsidered for the sake of the victims and survivors of the martial law implemented by the former President and dictator.
"This decision will not bring unity to our country; It will only deepen the unhealed wounds of the survivors of the family members of victims of the terrible years under the Marcos presidency."
"Furthermore, his heirs continue to deny that these sins against our people happened. They continue to have no remorse and still prevent the return of the wealth that they stole.
It is our responsibility to teach our children the heroism and sacrifice of our forefathers.
And Mr. Marcos is no hero."
