Ka Bel to Imelda—Bury your husband and apologize to the Filipino for the 20 years of your joint dictatorship

Anakpawis Representative Crispin Beltran, a former political detainee under the Marcos dictatorship, today said he has lost all patience for Mrs. Imelda Marcos and her relentless campaign to have her husband the former strongman ousted president Ferdinand Marcos in the Libingan ng mga Bayani.

Beltran said that Mrs. Marcos’ continuing pleas and demands to the incumbent administration that her family be allowed at last to put Marcos’ body to rest in the heroes’ landmark cemetery have become tedious and infuriating, especially given recent developments wherein the Macapagal-Arroyo government is all set to ‘do a Marcos’ and impose martial law.

“Mrs. Marcos continues to demand the royal treatment from the Filipino people, and its brutal punishment for those who suffered under her and her husband’s joint dictatorship to see that the Macapagal-Arroyo administration is being pliant to her requests. It’s a slap on the face of all of Marcos’ victims and survivors that the Arroyo government continues to entertain her and her demands, while up to this day justice is being those the hundreds of survivors of the dark days of the Marcos dictatorship,” he said.

“Imelda, bury your husband in an ordinary cemetery and apologize to the Filipino people,” he demanded.

The veteran labor leader turned legislator said that the nightmare of the Marcos dictatorship is now being relived by Filipinos. “Macapagal-Arroyo doesn’t even have to declare martial law for authoritarian rule to be imposed. Already, the police and military forces are attacking rallies and making illegal arrests left and right. The recent ban on protests and rallies is all too reminiscent of martial law. Macapagal-Arroyo is now operating on Marcos’ rules of political suppression and repression,” he said.

“What rubs the salt deeper into our wounds is constantly seeing the widow Imelda make her public pleas on behalf of her family for the dead dictator and hearing Marcos Jr say that it’s his family who has been persecuted and it’s their rights that are being violated. This is too much,” he said.

“The Filipino people defeated Marcos, they will also defeat his female clone Gloria Arroyo,” he concluded.#
