Martial Law victims file petition vs Marcos burial as hero

Martial Law victims filed a petition before the Supreme Court yesterday opposing President Rodrigo Duterte’s approval of dictator Ferdinand Marcos’ burial at the Libingan ng mga Bayani (Cemetery of Heroes).

The petitioners said that the Philippines will be a laughing stock of the rest of the world if a president it ousted in 1986 for his gross human rights violations, corruption and immorality would be honored as a hero 30 years later.

Marcos is set to be buried at the cemetery in September.
