Binay: It’s Ilocos for Marcos burial

But Bongbong says family has not agreed to anything; Imelda mum

By |


LAOAG CITY, Ilocos Norte, Philippines—Vice President Jejomar Binay said the family of the late strongman Ferdinand Marcos has agreed to a proposal to have his remains buried in his home province of Ilocos Norte.

Binay made the statement in a press conference at the Fort Ilocandia Resort Hotel on Tuesday in the presence of Marcos’ widow, Ilocos Norte Rep. Imelda Marcos, who accompanied him for the launching of the government’s housing program in the region.

Mrs. Marcos did not confirm or deny Binay’s statement. The Marcos family has yet to issue a categorical statement on the matter.

Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos said in Manila the family has not agreed to anything because there has been no formal government proposal on it. But he added: “As long it is accompanied by full military and state honors, I am open to it.”

“Yun lamang ang aming pinaninindigan dito—ang kanyang honors as a president and as a soldier (That is the principle we are fighting for, that he be given due honors as a president and as a soldier).”

Binay discussed the Marcos burial issue in response to a question raised during the press conference. He stressed that he went to Ilocos Norte to lead a government housing caravan and the forum was not meant to be a venue for any announcement on Marcos’ burial.

He said discussions on Marcos’ burial place have been trimmed down to two issues.

“The main issue was [whether to have the burial at the Libingan ng mga Bayani]. That became moot and academic because the burial place originated from [the late president] who made a wish to have his body buried at the Libingan,” Binay said.

“If [the Libingan burial] is not possible, then we have to consider the family’s wish. But the Marcos family has already agreed to have the burial in Ilocos Norte,” he added.

Binay had recommended Ilocos Norte as Marcos’ final resting place, citing the results of a survey he conducted earlier this year showing that Filipinos favor military honors for Marcos in his home province.

President Aquino earlier tasked Binay with recommending the best way to resolve the issue of Marcos’ burial.

Marcos’ relatives and supporters insisted on a hero’s burial at the Libingan ng mga Bayani while other groups opposed the move, saying Marcos, who ruled the country for 20 years, did not deserve the honor.

Marcos was ousted by a civilian-backed military uprising in 1986 and died in exile in Hawaii in 1989. His body was flown back to the country in 1993 and has since been preserved in a glass case inside a temperature-controlled mausoleum in the family’s compound in Batac City.

Binay, however, did not say whether he has formally sat down with the Marcoses to discuss the burial preparations.

“We will issue an official pronouncement on the matter in the coming days once we have ironed out the remaining details of the burial plans,” he said.

Mrs. Marcos later told reporters that the family has yet to discuss the final burial plans. “I leave the decision to God as to where Marcos should be buried,” she said.

Ilocos Norte officials, however, said the Marcos widow could be keeping her final decision on the burial place in time for the 94th birth anniversary of the late president next month. With a report from Christian V. Esguerra

        Ang pagkakaiba ng tatay mo sa diktador na si Marcos ay kung anong ginawa nila matapos yang kabayanihang kinukwento mo. Si Marcos ay nagpahirap at pumatay ng napakaraming pilipino at nagpahirap sa buong bayan. Maliban na lang kung ang erpat mo ay naging bahagi rin ng pasista at diktadurang rehimen ni Marcos matapos ang kanilang kabayanihan. Hamo bro at hihintayin kong kamatayan mo pwede mo rin namang madaliin at tinitiyak ko sayo ipaglalaban kong malibing ka sa Libingan ng mga Bayani. Ok?

        So it means nothing to you that a man who had a salary of next
        to nothing, for 20 years, ended up being a billionaire,,, multi-billionaire and
        not in pesos. I mean in United States, Yankee Dollars. All the while, the
        majority of the country was living in near poverty conditions. And his corrupt
        form of government continues to this day. Anything he or his wife did for the
        Philippine people, pales in comparison to what they did for themselves.

    DAPAT LANG!!! Talagang dun lang nararapat ibaon ang katawan ng diktador na si Marcos. Dahil kung ilalayo pa yan ng Ilocos ay baka maamoy namin ang umaalingasaw na baho ng katawan niya at baka muling lumitaw ang mga multo ng malagim nilang kasalanan sa bayan na hindi pa nila inaamin o tinatanggap at pinagbabayaran. Ngayon, kung muli nilang ipipilit ang pagpapalibing sa kanya sa Libingan ng mga Bayani sasangayunan ko na yung minsang may nagmungkahi na para walang pagtatalo at debate ay parti partehin natin yung katawan ng diktador na si Marcos. Bale limang parte. Yung isang parte ilagak sa Libingan ng mga Bayani. Yung isang parte ilagak sa Ilocos Norte para sa mga ilokanong panatiko ni Apo. Yung isang parte ilagak sa Pasig River sa likod ng Malacañang para mapagbigayan yung mga Marcos Loyalist na Marcos Pa Rin! ang kanilang presidente. Yung isang parte ilagak sa isang lalagyan na laging madadala ni Landitay Imelda para sa kanyang Imeldific effect. Yung pinaka huling parte, yung parteng batok ay ibigay sa mga aktibista, pamilya at kaanak na nilabag nila ang mga karapatan nuong Martial Law para may nababatok batukan sila pag naaalala nila yung kawalanghiyaan ng diktador. Everybody happy no? Napagbigyan lahat ha? Pag may humirit pa baka maging atado o bopis na ang katawan ng diktador.

    Now with that settled, what I am curious about is if Imelda desires to
    be buried in the Libingan ng mga Bayani. As a former first lady, she might want to be
    treated similarly with her predecessor Evangeline Macaraeg Macapagal who
    is buried there. But I am sure a lot of people will vehemently object so it’s good to settle the matter now otherwise when her time comes,  like her husband’s, her body might remain in a crypt for years waiting for a decision.

Dapat maraming seremonya para naiiba.  Dapat maraming hakot para ipakita sa mundo na maraming nagmamahal daw.  Nakakahiya kasi kung ang dadalo lang ay yung mga lolo at lola na wala ng ngipin na mga loyalista na nakasuot ng puting damit na may markang marcos pa rin.

    honors as a president and a soldier? i believe honor should be earned and not just part of a retirement package. and with what he did to our country (salvagings, disappearances, plunder, all in the name of power and wealth for him and his family) and as a soldier (fake medals, fake heroism, fake army unit), i can’t see where is the honor in all those things. clearly he hasn’t earned much less deserve it.

      Reread your Philippine History book Mr Molina.  You’re so naive that maybe you don”t know, Ferdinand Edralin Marcos has been the Philippine President for 20 years. Can you erase that in history? Compare his accomplishments through ratio and proportion by year compared to those Presidents who succeedded after him.

        Filipinos who were adults during the Marcos regime don’t have to read the history books.  Before Marcos became president, we were the Pearl of the Orient Seas. Our economy was second in Asia next only to Japan. HK and Singapore were far behind us. Our exchange rate was P3.50 to the US dollar. Our peso was P1 to HK2. What did Marcos do to our country? He transformed us into the “Poor Man of Asia:” and the “Basketcase of Asia” during his rule at the same time that there were reports that the conjugal dictatorship of Marcos was amassing great wealth. He corrupted the military that was highly respected before his rule. Those who opposed him were jailed, tortured, disappeared, and even killed. Nobody could speak against the government in fear that somebody with the government would overhear and find oneself invited to Malacanang never to be seen again. He could have done so much for our country during his 20 year rule. Instead he left us a government where corruption had been institutionalized, a corrupted military and a gargantuan debt that our grandchildren’s children will still have to pay. We did not read this in a history book. We were there and witnessed the devastation Marcos brought to our country.

    the filipino people is merciful not to incarcerate the despotic dictator who wrecked all the institutions and our values as a nation. his family and il-gotten wealth have been spared even if the next generations of our children will continue to pay the debt and damages he made. it is unfair for the military in their struggle to restore their integrity and name, to be associated once more to an oppressor of human dignity, nor to the noble tradition of our Philippine Presidents who served our Constitution and Flag with humility. Let the department of health deal with his burial; it is a hazard to leave a body unburied. as for the vice-president, let him continue his double talk.

    Warpiglets, tama ka bro. masyado lang nademonize si marcos saten ng media tapos mga hunghang mag pinoy ambilis mabrainwash kasi un comfortable sa kanila maghanap ng masisisi, wala contentment, ayaw ng dinidisplina. Let me think, me president na ba tayo hindi naging corrupt o kahit sa ibang bansa, ang tanong except sa pagiging corrupt ano nagawa nila sa bansa, lagi nila tinitingnan ang naitago pera ni marcos pero di nila makita lahat ng inkinaunlad ng pilipinas na ngayon e naudlot na din is dahil sa kanya, lahat establishment ni ultimo hiway naten ngayon na matitibay is kanya projects, heart center, lung center, kidney center, lahat yan sa kanya, meralco at iba pa, governement owned lahat yan, DATI. Un na lang peso vs dollar nun compare ngayon. Ou madami natapakan nun pero karamihan is ung sumisira lang sa pag unlad ng bayan at ung kontra sa pag unlad ng bansa dahil meron sila sarili interes, just like mga nagkaisa para tanggalin siya, ung mga naglead dun at nakinabang after at gumamit k aquino as new president to serve their purpose on the sides, tingnan nio naman pilipinas ngayon, sa halip independent, dependent na dependent sa ibang bansa. Isa pa di naman lahat ng natapakan sa batas militar e utos niya o responsible siya, ung iba dahil na lang sa abusado na militar which is not of his direct control, kahit ngayon nangyayari yan, wag k marcos isisi lahat. Patunay lang yun na corrupt ang pilipino at d pa handa, which is un ang layunin ng batas militar para disiplinahin ang mga di madisiplinang pinoy, kailangan un sa pag unlad, see singapore and others like japan, pinagdaanan nila mahigpit pamumuno para madisiplina tao, saten tingin ko la ng PAG ASA dahil ng abused democracy na minsan ginagamit na lang ng iba for their own interest.

      Bata ka pa seguro kaya hindi mo alam ang pinagdaanan namin sa panahon ni Marcos. Bago maging presidente si Marcos, ang Pilipinas ay kilalang “Pearl of the Orient Seas”. Ang ating economiya ay 2nd only to Japan in the whole of Asia. Mas matatag pa tayo sa Hongkong at Singapore. Ang exchange rate natin sa bawa’t dollar, P3.50 lang. Sa bawat piso dalawang HK dollar.  Nang maging pangulo si Marcos,sa kalaunan ang kaban ng bayan ay nawaldas. Umutang ng umutang ang gobyerno ni Marcos samantala kumakalat ang balita na sobra sobra ang perang napupunta sa mga Marcos. Pinagtatawanan tayo ng buong mundo dahil naging na tayo “Basketcase of Asia” at tinawag tayong “Poor Man of Asia”. Noon malapit na matapos ang 2nd term ni Marcos at alam niya di na siya puedeng mahalal uli, nag declare siya ng Martial Law. Noong bago mag EDSA 1 at humiwalay si Enrile kay Marcos at humingi siya ng tulong sa mga tao na protektahan sila kay Marcos sinabi niya live sa radyo na drama lang ang pagsabog sa kotse niya (Enrile) para gamitin dahilan mag declare ng Martial Law.

      Sa panahon ng Martial Law lahat ng kilalang nagprotesta kay Marcos bago mag Martial Law ay pinagpupulot. Iniimbitahan kuno sa Malacanang. Marami sa kanila kinulong at ti-norture. Iyun iba pinatay at iyun iba naman di na nakita uli ng mga kamag-anak pagkakuha sa kanila ng militar.

      Isa pa. Ang Meralco ay hindi tinayo ni Marcos. Matagal nang may Meralco bago pa maging presidente si Marcos. Ng mag declare ng Martial Law inagaw niya sa mga Lopezes ang Meralco. Ginawa pa ngang sine iyun mga ilang taong nakaraan. Yun Heart Center, Kidney Center, etc. mga barya lang yan. Hindi ako magtataka kung malaki ang kickback nila noon itinatayo yan mga yan.

      Bago kay Marcos, mataas ang paningin ng mga tao sa mga pulis at militar. Iyun mga general, pag nag-retire, mga bahay nila makikita mo na binili nila sa kakayanin ng kanilang sweldo. Sa panahon ni Marcos, maraming generals nakabili ng mga ari-arian sa mga first class subdivisions sa Makati. Mga anak pinaaaral pa sa Amerika. Pareho naman ang sweldo nila sa mga general bago kay Marcos. Lahat ng institution ng gobyerno naging corrupt. Walang pinatawad.

      Nang nagalsa ang bayan laban kay Marcos at napilitan siyang tumakbo, baon na baon na sa utang ang Pilipinas at ang exchange rate na dati P3.50 to $1, ay naging P32 to $1.00. Ang Hongkong dollar na dati P1 to HK2 ay naging P8 to HK1 baliktad na at sobra sobra pa.  Ang Bataan Nuclear Plant na over priced by 300% ni hindi magamit sa dami ng defects. Maraming-marami pang katiwalian at pagdudusa ang dinanas natin sa panahon ni Marcos. Kaya huwag mong akalain media lang yan.Totoong malaki ang pinsala na dinulot ng regimen ni Marcos sa Pilipinas. Biruin mo bago kay Marcos mas magaling pa tayo sa HK at Singapore?  At ngayon gusto tayong paniwalaan ng mga Marcos na nararapat lang na siya ay gawing hero? At si Binay, hindi lang yan sumasama sa mga marcha laban kay Marcos na sumisigaw ng “Nakaw na yaman ibalik sa bayan”. Leader pa yan ng mga marcha at ngayon parang gusto pa niyang pagbigyan ang mga Marcos? Hindi na ba siya naniniwala na nakaw na yaman dapat ibalik sa bayan?

      Any president can accomplish what the dictator did to the country or had done much better than him.  You’re just brainwashed of his falsehood, just to prolong himself in power.  In 20 years, he brainwashed you and accomplished only a school where you studied.  He was allowed to govern the country for only 8 years, the remaining 12 years were stolen from other Filipinos who could be president. Just greed, not so perfect.

    It’s long overdue. A record for a President who “sleeps” in a refrigerated “bed”. They should have considered burying him much earlier and funded brainy kids to school. Ferdi I assume couldn’t be more happier when seeing kids graduate with honors and contribute to society rather than seeing his dead body preserved for some reasons.

    Before election, PNoy and Kris went to Ilocos, first time after Ninoy was assasinated. I doubt, if few deals had been made with the Marcos’s if PNoy will win the presidency.

    Binay went to Ilocos to discussed the burial. Binay did not want to jeopardize his ambition for the next president. Another deal was made.

    The deal is just to stop persecuting the Marcos, stop running after their wealth. Stop demonizing the Marcos. And Marcos remain shall be buried in nowhere to be found.

    This is what the majority Filipino people really wishes for the late Marcos to be buried in his hometown. So be it.

    Binay claimed the Marcos family agreed to be buried
    the former dictator to his hometime in Batac, Ilocos Norte but the Marcos
    family did not confirm it. Shame on you Binay!

    Binay is next to former First Gentleman Mike Arroyo
    for being a LIAR! He claimed the Marcos family agreed but but Senador Bong
    Marcos denied it. Eh sinungaling pala itong si Binay talaga eh.

    whoa…so what’s the real story? puro sinungaling na lang nahahalal sa pinas ngayon? hindi sila halal…tama ba sentence ko warstout?

    Binay is the most trusted government official,
    that’s according to surveys. Pinagkakatiwalaan ng taumbayan pero ubod pala ng
    sinungaling ang taong ito.

    Teth17 at least we are learning.  We have to be grateful at this time and age we can communicate like this and share opinions. Tyak tatakbo yan presidente sa susunod na eleksyon.

  • Pepe Smith

    Aquino’s government will not allow the burial of President Marcos, a former president and a soldier to the Libingan ng mga Bayani, yet his mothers’ dog was buried there. What kind of logic is this? This president will never succeed in his presidency because without true reconciliation, the Philippine society will remain divided.

      PNOy should be magnanimous.

    Who’s really telling the truth between Binay and
    the Marcos family? I think both, both silang mga sinungaling!

  • Anonymous

    that’s fine, as long as NO whatsoever due HONORS be given by the national government! 

    let everyone else give mr. marcos any honors they may think of but not from the national budget!

      He deserves it, most of the developments we have today were from his blueprint.  He could be our most brilliant president and most efficient leader sans the corruption and perpetuation issues.

    Binay just want to get media attention that’s why
    kahit magsinugaling siya, gagawin niya, for the sake of publicity. Yan si
    Binay!

    Senator Marcos huwag ka ng umasa pa na malilibing
    sa Libingan ng mga Bayani ang tatay mong diktador, hindi niya
    deserve na malibing doon dahil he is not a hero but a criminal.

  • Anonymous

    Sige na nga pagbigyan na sila pero huwag lang
    ilibing sa Libingan ng mga Bayani. Wala siyang K. Senator Marcos said they will
    only agree if his father will also be given full military and state honors.

    Who’s lying… Binay or the Marcos family? Survey
    says…Marcos 0 vote – Binay negative zero vote!

    Don’t forget the full military honors and the state funeral, nevertheless, he is our most brilliant president.

    SABI NG FIRST LADY NG MGA ZAPATOS NA “I leave the decision to God as to where Marcos should be buried,” ……  LIAR.  WHY HANGGANG NGAYON DI PA SYA NALILIBING.  KASI YOU LEFT THE DECISION TO EVIL.

    WALANG HIYA DIN SI BUNGBONG PARA SABIHIN NIYA NA 
    Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos said in Manila the family has not
    agreed to anything because there has been no formal government proposal
    on it. But he added: “As long it is accompanied by full military and
    state honors, I am open to it.”

    “Yun lamang ang aming pinaninindigan dito—ang kanyang honors as a
    president and as a soldier (That is the principle we are fighting for,
    that he be given due honors as a president and as a soldier).”

    YOUR FATHER IS AN EVIL.  DI NYO BA NAKIKITA ANG NANGYAYARI KUNG BAKIT WALANG PEACE HANGGANG NGAYON ANG EVIL FATHER NYO.    MGA MUKHANG HONORS OF EVIL KASI KAYO.
