Simbilis ng magnanakaw: Leftist solons blasts stealthy FM burial at LNMB
Bayan Muna Partylist Rep. Carlos Isagani Zarate on Friday, November 18, scored the speedy and stealthy burial of former president Ferdinand E. Marcos at the “Libingan Ng Mga Bayani” (LNMB) in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City as move comparable to Hitler’s “blitzkrieg” military tactics which gave him control of much of Europe during the World War II
In the same vein, the politiko also called the clan’s move as a “slap on the face” of the victims of human rights violations during martial law, as well as an “outright insult” to the Supreme Court, which has yet to bring finality to its decision.
“We will not take this sitting down and more protests would be launched against the Marcoses. Hanggang sa huli, panakaw pa rin ang naging tatak ng diktador: ninakaw ng mga Marcoses ang due process rights ng mga petitioners,” Zarate stressed.
In a similar move, Kabataan Partylist Rep. Sarah Elago said that the secretive manner in which the burial was held “speaks volumes of how far the Marcoses are willing to go just to change the course of history.”
“The sneak burial of the late dictator – a plunderer, a human rights violator of the highest order – is a grave travesty against the Filipino people. This will not result in the healing of the nation, this secret burial will go down in history as one of the most traitorous moves meant to subvert the judgment of history,” the politiko added.
“This secret burial speaks volumes of how, on one hand, the Marcos family is fearful of the wrath of the Filipino people, and on the other hand, the lengths in which authorities are willing to go just to change the course of history,” Elago stressed.
