After the controversially disingenuous surprise burial of the late president and dictator Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani last Friday noon, many refused to keep mum about the issue. One of the more vocal detractors is Senator Francis "KikoPangilinan, who insinuated that his remains won't stay buried at the Libingan ng mga Bayani forever.

"Malilibing  siya pero hindi ibig sabihin na mananatili siyang nakalibing dun," said the recently appointed Liberal Party President, Kiko Pangilinan.

The body of the former president and dictator was deviously brought to the Libingan ng mga Bayani on the same day with surprise rites, only being publicized hours before the event started.

The senator vowed to pursue all legal and political measures in order to have Marcos' body exhumed from the heroes' shrine.

Furthermore, Pangilinan is not alone in his efforts in opposing the burial, as the many victims of the Martial Law era abuses and advocates of human rights expressed their strong defiance of the burial, claiming that it is undeserved and unjust.

Unfortunately for them, and against basic human decency, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the burial voting 9-5-1 last week.
