The name of ‘Libingan ng mga Bayani’ could be renamed into “Libingan ng mga Bayani at iba pa,” as President Duterte is keen on permitting the entombment of the late tyrant President Ferdinand Marcos at the Heroes’ Cemetery.
Former Senate President Aquilino “Nene” Pimentel Jr. on Wednesday emphasized his proposition to include “at iba pa” (and others) to Libingan in Taguig City.
Pimentel said in a telephone meeting that the “at iba pa” alluded to Marcos alone, on account of the “pitilessness of his military law government.”
Pimentel, in any case, kept up that the tyrant ought to be covered in Paoay or in Batac, Ilocos Norte, where he is adored there by the poeple.
“He is no hero. He has misused his power when he [put the country under] martial rule and has caused the disappearance of so many people, the deaths of so many people opposing the martial law regime and the torture of innumerable detainees.”
