Did Ferdinand Marcos want to be buried at the Libingan ng mga Bayani?
His family says it was in his Last Will and Testament.
(SPOT.ph) On Tuesday, November 15, the Marcos family released the alleged last will and testament of former President Ferdinand Marcos. It is supposedly dated March 17, 1982 and reads: "I desire that my remains be buried according to the rites established by law and with dignity suitable to my position and other personal circumstances."

The document was made known to the public support the claims that the late dictator "really wanted to be buried at the Libingan ng mga Bayani," explained Marcos family lawyer Atty. Yvette Convento-Leynes. On November 8, the Supreme Court approved the Marcos burial at the heroes' cemetery. "It's just complying with what your dad wants," Imee Marcos said in an interview with ANC Headstart on November 10.
Opponents of the high court decision gave their own interpretations of Marcos's last will and testament. Here are just some of them.

Aside from obvious safety concerns, financial controversies envelop the completed but never used Bataan Nuclear Power Plant.
@News5AKSYON The hottest place in BNPP, when running, is the Reactor. Marcos wud feel at home there! BNPP is a Testimony of his Corruption!— Herman B (@malinginV) November 15, 2016
Speaking of "suitable to my position"...
Interpretation for Marcos' last will: pag di nyo ko ipinilit na ilibing sa LNMB na yan, di nyo makukuha pera na ninakaw ko! #MarcosNOTaHero— I Don't Care At All! (@Y_Sa_Bella) November 15, 2016
Deal or no deal?

Maybe the Marcoses should have thought twice about revealing that document.
When u know Marcos' last will n testament says he'd rather be buried in Ilocos, but these idiots want him labeled a hero #MarcosNOTaHero— perrieber (@mixerxbelieber) November 8, 2016
Maybe LNMB should stand for Libingan Ni Marcos sa Batac?
