During an interview, Trillanes said the Philippine government has the policy of give former presidents a hero's burial.
"We should not discriminate. It's either we do away with the policy or we craft a new one but we can never be selective. I won't mind actually. I'm not the overly sentimental type. E matagal na pong namatay yung tao. I don't think it really matters to anybody's interpretation of history kung saan siya nakalibing dahil sa akin ho, ano, in the future kung kunyari itong si former president [Gloria Macapagal Arroyo] e ililibing at pinagdedebatehan kung san ililibing, sa akin bahala sila kung san nila ililibing," he said.
"In the future, kahit si GMA ilagay, ilibing dyan, I wouldn't mind," he added.
Trillanes also said the Libingan ng mga Bayani was established as a final resting place for Filipino soldiers.
"The fact is naging sundalo ho si former President Marcos and that place is also reserved for soldiers. He has served this country and hindi ho ma-ne-negate yun ng mga activities, which actually is still subjective for some," he said.
Trillanes also criticized former Vice-President Jejomar Binay for recommending only military honors for Marcos in his home province of Ilocos Norte, instead of a hero's burial.
"I believe that the recommendation of Vice-President Binay is a cop-out. It's just pleasing people. It is not doing the right thing. It's neither here nor there," he said.
