Former Philippines dictator Ferdinand Marcos buried in Heroes’ cemetery

Last week, former president Ferdinand Marcos was buried in Heroes’ cemetery. This was something that President Duterte promised during his presidential campaign to the Marcos’ family in exchange for financial support of his campaign.

This has been a very controversial decision, because it has reopened all wounds created by Marcos’ ruthless tortures and murders and plunder during his dictatorship. Duterte against the Filipino people?
