Statement by Senate President Pro-Tempore
Franklin M. Drilon on the late dictator's burial

The stealthy and hurried manner by which the Marcos burial was orchestrated is reminiscent of the dark days of martial law.

The atrocities perpetrated during Martial Law succeeded because the citizenry was kept in the dark. Marcos betrayed the country for decades; we should not allow him to continue to do so up to this day.

Like what Marcos did for 21 years, he caught us off-guard like a thief in the night.

His burial is anything but noble. Even in death, he is a thief.
