Is Edwin Lacierda blaming Duterte for Marcos' imminent burial at LNMB?

Edwin Lacierda, spokesperson of former President BS Aquino, took to Facebook to express his reaction on the recent ruling of the Supreme Court granting the former dictator Ferdinand Marcos a burial at the Libingan Ng Mga Bayani (LNMB).

On his post, Lacierda pointed out why Marcos shouldn't be buried at the hero's cemetery.

Read his entire post below:
GRANTED

Granted that FERDINAND MARCOS fought bravely as a young soldier in World War II;

Granted that all the medals FERDINAND MARCOS won as a soldier were all meritoriusly earned despite subsequent verification that some accounts of his heroism were faricated;

Granted that FERDINAND MARCOS was never convicted of a crime and was only civilly sanctioned;

Granted that there is no direct law that prohibited the burial of FERDINAND MARCOS in the Libingan Ng Mga Bayani;

BUT

Grant also the fact that his heroism was eviscerated by ruling this country with an iron, fascist hand;

Grant also the fact that he robbed, stole, pillaged the country blind, sinking our economy and our country in debt;

Grant also the fact that from the second best performing Asian country after Japan, we ended being dubbed the Sick Man of Asia;

Grant also the fact it was in FERDINAND MARCOS' presidency that for the first time, salvaging or Extrajudicial Killings became fashionable, more than 3,000 dead, one that the Great Eagle Father has emulated and recently surpassed;

Grant also that while there is no direct law that prohibited the burial in the Libingan, there was the Human Rights Compensation Act that acknowledged the excesses of the brutal Marcos years;

Grant also the fact that the reason why FERDINAND MARCOS was not convicted of a crime was because under the procedural laws which you are fully aware of, the court must acquire jurisdiction over the person and of course, how could we acquire jurisdiction when he was in Hawaii and you ruled that he cannot be allowed to return to this country;

Grant also the fact that the people rose in revolt against him in 1986 because we were sick and tired of all the lies, all the brutality, all the corruption that we suffered during his presidency and that his removal was recognized by the international family of nations;

Grant also the fact that given the absence of a direct law, you are aware that given all these facts, you could have ruled on EQUITY and recognized his role in the dumbing down of our country;

BUT YOU DID NOT

And so, from a very limited view, you decided and grants his burial and in the process, robbed from those who died and suffered under his dictatorship the justice and moral victory they richly deserved and justified to the future generations that it is ok to rob, steal and kill the country blind.

Finally, grant me also this imagery: Imagine Germany honoring Adolf Hitler for his heroism in the First World War after murdering six million Jews as Fuhrer.

Sleep on it! Sieg Heil!

And btw, Congratulations!
Although he didn't drop any name, it seems like Lacierda is blaming President Duterte for the recent decision of the Supreme Court.

Duterte earlier allowed the burial of the late dictator at the LNMB arguing that there's no existing law prohibiting it. Duterte said that Marcos is qualified to be buried there being a former soldier.

Netizens were also quick to defend Duterte saying he's only implementing what the law says.

They also slammed former Presidents Cory Aquino and BS Aquino, the staunch nemesis of the Marcoses and the bosses of Lacierda, for their failure to resolve the Marcos case while they were still in office.

Are you unhappy with the SC decision on the Marcos burial at the Libingan ng mga Bayani? Sila ang sisihin ninyo. Pwede sana nilang isiguro na hindi ito mangyayari noong presidente sila pero wala silang ginawa.
