Fr. Villarin slammed the SC for their decision and said “amounts to a monumental denial of the suffering and murder of thousands of our people and the billions of public funds stolen during those tragic years of Martial Law.”
“Ferdinand Marcos did not just err like us. Decisions that were made during his regime were marked by atrocity and impunity,” he added.
By choosing to pass the issue of Marcos’ burial to the executive, Villarin said the SC “misses the opportunity and its own power to affirm the enshrined principles embedded in our Constitution, which they have affirmed as rising from the ashes of the Marcos administration.”
