The Supreme Court is holding the second round of Oral Arguments for the 6 petitions seeking to stop the burial of Former President Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani in Taguig City.
Solicitor General Jose Calida is presenting the side of the Executive Branch, which is among the respondents in the petitions.
Calida told the justices that Marcos will be buried at the Libingan not as a hero but as a former president of the country.
He also cited a House resolution that sought Marcos’ burial at the Heroes’ Cemetery.
The Supreme Court also intends to hear the sentiment of the Marcos family.
Groups supporting and opposing the petitions are both holding demonstrations in front of the Supreme Court at Padre Faure Street in Manila.
