A novice senator on Monday, August 8, hit President Rodrigo Duterte for standing firm on his choice to give the late strongman Ferdinand Marcos a hero's entombment while openly denouncing oligarchs for destroying the country.


“For someone who publicly disapproves of oligarchs, President Duterte’s decision to give the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos a hero’s burial is the height of contradiction,” Senator Risa Hontiveros said in a statement.

It doesn't bode well for Duterte to respect the late tyrant, who made the colleague framework in any case, Hontiveros said. 

Hontiveros filed Senate Resolution 86 communicating the chamber's resistance to a saint's internment for the late tyrant. 

"Previous president Marcos ought not be permitted to be buried at the Libingan ng mga Bayani, given discoveries of wrongdoings including moral turpitude and also the human rights infringement that happened amid his organization," said the determination. 

She said permitting the previous president to be covered at the burial ground will just further separation the country and not recuperate it, as Duterte had contended.
