Binigyang diin ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte na wala talaga siyang alam sa petsa ng paglilibing kay dating Pangulong Ferdinand Marcos sa Libingan ng mga Bayani (LNMB).

“In all honesty, I’m telling you: I knew nothing about it. They only asked me when would be the ‘appropriate time for me? I said, “do as you wish’,” pahayag ni Pangulong Duterte nang hingan ng reaksyon sa press conference sa Lima, Peru kung saan ito dumadalo sa Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Leader’s Summit.

“I didn’t ask them, and why would I ask? I allowed it already so what’s it to me? What would I get if I had known in advance whether he would be there for the interment on that day?” dagdag ni Duterte.

Gayunpaman, umapela ang pangulo sa mga nagsasagawa ng demonstrasyon bilang pagtutol sa paghihimlay kay Marcos na tanggapin na lamang ang sitwasyon dahil ito ang naaayon sa batas.

“So there was really a deep wound somewhere in the country. But for those who cannot really forgive, that’s the hard part. You just have to live with your grief, and that grief is hate. That is the problem,” anang pangulo.

Nanindigan din ang pangulo sa nauna nitong desisyong pagpapalibing sa dating pangulo sa LNBM.

Pagdidiin ni Duterte, hindi nagbabago ang kanyang posisyon. Wala aniyang pagbabago at pagsisisi sa desisyon niyang payagang ipalibing sa LNMB ang dating pangulo.

  1. Ibig sabihin binastos ng mga Marcos si Duterte na siyang pangulo ng Pilipinas dahil hindi ipinaalam sa kanya sa ililibing ng ganoong petsa at oras si Marcos? Ibig sabihin din na binastos siya ng PNP at Military dahil hindi ipinaalam sa kanya na siyang commander in chief? At naniniwala naman kayo? Baka sabihan na naman tayo na mga buang at bobo kapag naniwala tayo sa sinasabi ni Duterte na hindi niya alam ang araw at oras ng paglibing.

    1. Brod, siguro naman naiintindihan mo ibigi sabihin ni PD30..“I didn’t ask them, and why would I ask? I allowed it already so what’s it to me? What would I get if I had known in advance whether he would be there for the interment on that day?” dagdag ni Duterte.Maliwanag Brod.Kaya walang binastos at nabastos..kayo lang lang naman nag-iisip ng kung ano-ano na puor wala namang kwenta..

  2. Mga BUANG ang naniniwala kay DU30 na walang alam. Hoy huwag kayong magalit sa sinabi ko at kay DU30 galing iyan na mga BUANG ang naniniwala sa kanya.

    Mag isip isip nga kayo kung di nag sisinungaling si DU30 na di niya alam ang petsa ng pag papalibing. Sa akin ay okay lang mailibing ssi Marcos at matapos na na ito. Pero sasabihin niya na di alam…. Kalokohan iyan. may basbas siya at kayo ang malagay sa mga Marcos di ninyo ba ipapaalam kay DU30 ang araw ng pag papalibing at siya ang tumulong tapos di kayo mag papaalam kung kailan. Mga Buang talaga kayo kung naniniwala kayo.

  3. If only Filipinos would use their heads and employ good reasoning unaffected by emotions, then maybe things would not be escalated to too much hatred and animosity. There are laws and rules that govern for anyone to be interred into this Cemetery. As a former President and a Commander In Chief and also as a veteran of the Philippine Armed Forces, former President Marcos is fully qualified to be buried there. Yes, he was a dictator and as such affected the lives of many Filipinos during his administration, but laws are laws and rules are rules. And as a lawyer, President Duterte knows this. Legally, he is bound to follow the existing laws and rules pertaining to this issue. Even the SC, the Judiciary branch, will in no way escape the bare and naked facts that the only interpretation possible is simply to follow the law.
    Previous administrations could have had passed amendments to address this issue thereby preventing Marcos to be buried there. Yet, for some reasons or another, they did not do so. Simply put, do not blame the present President for following the existing law. There is one thing President Duterte can do to calm everyone. And that is to rename LNMB through Executive Order back to its previous name: Republic Memorial Cemetery which was renamed by then President R. Magsaysay on 27 Oct 1954. In this way, hero or not, as long as the deceased qualifies in accordance to the Interment Policy, then, the deceased should be buried there.

    1. You are correct. The reason why people are enraged over Marcos burial at LNMB is because to them, he was no hero. And Duterte himself said that Marcos was no hero. Rename the LNMB to RMC is one of the best solution.
