    VP Leni on Marcoses’ holiday request for ex-president’s centenary: ‘What is there to celebrate?’

    Office of the Vice President September 11, 2017

    Vice President Leni Robredo on Monday said it was inappropriate to mark as a holiday the birth centenary of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos. While entitled to celebrate the life of their late patriarch, VP Leni believes such should not be imposed by the family on the public, amid the abuses during the dictatorship that they have not acknowledged nor apologized for. “Parang kinakalimutan natin iyong lahat na kasalanan na nagawa sa taumbayan. Parang nire-revise iyong kuwento, nire-revise iyong kasaysayan, na hindi naman dapat,” the Vice President told reporters during the 40th founding anniversary of Doña Remedios Trinidad in Bulacan, a town named after the late dictator’s mother-in-law. “Kung pamilya kayo, okay lang naman na i-celebrate niyo sa paggunita ng araw ng inyong namatay. Pero kapag sinasabi mo na kailangan ipagbunyi ito—iyong buhay niya, kailangang ipagbunyi ng ating bansa—iyon iyong mali,” she added. Malacañang declared September 11, Marcos’ 100th birth anniversary, a special non-working holiday in Ilocos Norte. President Rodrigo Duterte said he approved this upon the family’s request, noting that he had no reason to refuse because the late dictator is revered in their home province. This comes after the President revealed that the Marcos family is “willing” to return “some” of the ill-gotten wealth they amassed during the dictatorship. VP Leni reiterated anew if the family was sincere about this, they must come clean to the public. “Kasi iyong kasalanan sa bansa, hindi pa iyon napapawi, lalong lalo na kasi iyong mga ninakaw sa ating bayan ay hindi pa nababalik. Hindi naman kanila iyon. Pera iyon ng taumbayan. Na kung sinasabi mong mahal mo talaga iyong bayan, sana may pagsisisi at pagpapakita ng—alam mo iyon?—iyong desire na magbago, iyong pag-amin ng kasalanan, pagpakita na talagang pinagsisisihan iyong ginawa,” she said. “Pero hanggang ngayon walang ganoon. So bakit kailangan nating ipagbunyi bilang isang bayan iyong naging buhay ng yumaong pangulo?” she added.
