PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte justified Friday the burial of late President Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani, saying he was just “being legally strict” about it.
“President Marcos was a president for so long and he was a soldier. So that's about it. Whether or not he performed worse or better, there is no study, there is no movie about it. It’s just the challenges and allegations of the other side which is not enough,” Duterte told reporters in Lima, Peru where he is attending the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Meeting.
