DAVAO CITY – Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) founder Jose Maria Sison is urging the Marcos family to keep its earlier promise to just bury the remains of the late President Ferdinand Marcos in Ilocos Norte.

Sison said the Marcoses should not insist on burying the remains of the late dictator at the Libingan ng mga Bayani.

He said the family should just honor its earlier agreement with former President Fidel V. Ramos, who allowed the repatriation of Marcos’s remains from Hawaii on the condition that the latter will be buried in his home province.

“Ang mga Marcos dapat tuparin nila ang pangako nila na ang labi ni Marcos ay ililibing nila sa Ilocos Norte. Sa palagay ko nakalibing na iyon, wax na lang ang nakalitaw,” Sison said at a video call session here.

Sison, nonetheless, said he is not fully opposed to a Libingan ng mga Bayani burial for Marcos, as he does not consider the cemetery as something meant for heroes.

“At their own risk, pwede na nilang ilagay sa libingan ng maraming traydor. Hindi naman mga bayani ang lahat ng nandoon eh,” he said.

President-elect Rodrigo Duterte has agreed to have Marcos’ remains buried at the Libingan ng mga Bayani, saying the late dictator should be buried there for serving the country as a soldier.

He recently met with the late dictator’s only son and namesake, who said the burial can happen as early as September.
