Pangilinan says PH now world’s laughing stock for allowing hero’s burial for Marcos. Here’s why



The Philippines has become the world’s laughing stock after the Supreme Court, in a 9-5 vote, allowed the late strongman Ferdinand Marcos to be buried at the Libingan ng mga Bayani.
In a statement issued Tuesday (Nov. 8), Pangilinan described the timing of the issuance of SC’s decision as “a horrible day for democracy.”

“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 the Supreme Court wants our citizens, our children to honor a plunderer and tyrant. This is shameful and deplorable,” he said.

Instead of providing closure, Pangilinan said the SC “reopened old wounds” by allowing a hero’s burial for Marcos.
“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.

Citing a portion of Republic Act 289, which paved the way for the creation of the Libingan ng mga Bayani, Pangilinan said the cemetery is reserved for heroes to be emulated by “this generation and of generations still unborn”.

“Marcos is not a hero. His burial at the Libingan ng mga Bayani desecrates our democracy and the memory of those who fought for freedom and justice in our country,” he said.
