Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda slams Sen. Bongbong Marcos for "anti-Cory statements"

GMA News Online reports that Malacañang-through Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda-called out Sen. Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. for saying that "human rights violations were also committed during the term of the late President Corazon Aquino."

GMA News Online reports that Malacañang-through Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda-called out Senator Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. for saying that "human rights violations were also committed during the term of the late President Corazon Aquino."

 

The word war between Sen. Marcos and Malacañang started last week when President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III, said there will be no state burial for former President Ferdinand Marcos since "it would be an injustice to the victims of martial law."

 

At a press briefing,  Lacierda said, "The facts speak for themselves. There’s a judgment against the Marcoses in a foreign court. There had been an outcry of human rights violations. These things have not been resolved until the present time and so I think there is a deliberate diversion of issues by Senator Bongbong Marcos."

 

Lacierda added that it is "inconceivable" for Mrs. Aquino, whose husband, Sen. Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino Jr., was assassinated during Marcos’ time, to advance human rights violations. "That’s clearly not within the dictionary of the Aquino family," he said.

Lacierda also pointed out that a state burial was offered for Mrs. Aquino, who died in August 2009, but her family refused to accept it.
