VP Leni: Mr. Marcos is no hero

NAGA CITY, August 10, 2016 (Bicol Standard)--"We strongly oppose the decision to bury former President Ferdinand Marcos in the Libingan ng mga Bayani," Vice President Leni Robredo said in a statement posted on her Facebook page.

VP Leni Robredo
Robredo, who won against Ferdinand Marcos' son Bongbong in the previous vice presidential race added: "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.

This decision will not bring unity to our country; it will only deepen the unhealed wounds of the survivors and 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."
