One of them is Vice President Leni Robredo who called Marcos a thief, murderer and dictator who does not deserve a place in the heroes’ cemetery.
“Like a thief in the night, the Marcos family deliberately hid the information of burying former President Marcos today from the Filipino people,” Robredo said.
“They obviously flouted the law where the decision does not become final and executory until 15 days or the resolution of the (motion for reconsideration),” she added.
“We are disturbed that this happened in coordination with AFP and PNP demonstrating further that the judicial process has been thoroughly disregarded,” she said.
“This is nothing new to the Marcoses – they who had hidden wealth, hidden human rights abuses, and now, a hidden burial – with complete disrespect for the rule of law,” Robredo said.

“Once again, we strongly condemn the burial of the former dictator in the Libingan ng mga Bayani. As stated in several decisions from the Supreme Court, Ferdinand Marcos was a thief, a murderer and a dictator,” she said.
“He is no hero. If he were, obviously his family would not have to hide his burial like a shameful criminal deed,” Robredo added.
