RAMOS: umaatras na ang ibang sumusuporta sa DUTERTE Administration dahil sa Marcos Burial


MANILA – Former President Fidel Ramos on Monday said the surprise burial of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani is a “step backwards” for the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte.

Casualties of human rights infringement amid the Martial Law time frame were maddened by burial of the late dictator at the heroes’ cemetery on Friday.

The Supreme Court majority decision in favor of the burial was still subject to a motion for reconsideration.

In a news meeting, Ramos said the move of the Marcos family to rush the burial of the patriarch, with the assistance of the police and military, is a "step backwards" for the Duterte organization.

"You must understand, that is just a happening in a series of happenings.

The plan of the Marcos family with the intrigue of a few components of Armed Forces including the national police - some only, not everyone - is a step backwards for this organization as in they are losing support, they are losing companions," Ramos said.



The Palace, the police and the military earlier gave conflicting answers on whether Duterte, who is currently in Lima, Peru for the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit, was aware of the burial.

 The SC earlier rejected a petition by human rights victims to stop the transfer of Marcos’ remains to the same resting place of former presidents, national artists and heroes of war.

Marcos’ remains were transferred by helicopter from Ilocos Norte province, where it had been kept since it was brought back to the country in 1993.

 Marcos died while in exile in Hawaii in 1989, three years after he was ousted by a military-backed popular revolt.

Ramos was a key figure in the bloodless People Power Revolution in 1986, having turned his back on Marcos after serving as chief of the Philippine Constabulary.

Regardless of Duterte's choice to permit the burial, Ramos said he doesn't regret persuading the long-term Davao City chairman to keep running for the nation's top post.
