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.

Speaking of "suitable to my position"...

 

 

Deal or no deal?

 

 

Maybe the Marcoses should have thought twice about revealing that document.

 

 

Maybe LNMB should stand for Libingan Ni Marcos sa Batac?
