Press Statement of Senator Bongbong Marcos on the SC extension of the SQA on the Marcos burial at LNMB

18 October 2016

We have been patient for 23 years, we can be patient for a few days more.

Let us give our Honorable Justices of the Supreme Court the time they need to study this case. I am confident that they will ultimately agree to let my father be buried at the Libingan ng mga Bayani because it is in accordance with law.

We would like to thank all those who took part in the march and those present today to express their support for our family.

When I ran for office in the last elections, i ran under a platform of unity and this show of support for the burial of my father at the Libingan ng mga Bayani is a continuation of that campaign for unity.

We also would like to thank again President Rodrigo Duterte for continuing to support this unifying and healing effort to bury my father at the Libingan ng mga Bayani.
