Liberal Party President Francisco "Kiko" Pangilinan said our country will be the laughing stock of the world because the Supreme Court decided to bury the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos in the Libingan ng mga Bayani.
"Thanks to the Supreme Court, the Philippines will be a laughing stock of the world. We kicked out a reviled dictator and now we are honoring him by burying him in our national heroes cemetery. No less than our Supreme Court wants our citizens, our children to honor a plunderer and tyrant. This is shameful and deplorable," he said in his official statement.
He also said that the decision would not heal the wounds but would rather reopen old wounds from all the harm and torture Filipinos experience during the Martial Law era.
"Rather than effect closure as the final arbiter of all disputes, the Supreme Court has reopened old wounds. If the Supreme Court thinks it has the final say on the matter, then they are terribly mistaken. Burying Marcos in the Libingan has created a huge divide that will haunt the nation for days and years to come," he said.
Just like other senators, he urged everyone not to think of Marcos as a true hero because it disrespects democracy and the people who fought for freedom and justice.
His party is known to be the party of the Aquinos.
