Tinio hits Duterte’s special holiday declaration for Marcos birth anniv

ACT Teachers Representative slammed President Rodrigo Duterte’s declaration of a special working holiday in Ilocos Norte in honor of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos’ 100th birth anniversary.

Tinio questioned if the holiday declaration is consistent with Philippine law.

““So malinaw po ang batayan ng declaration ng special non-working holiday sa probinsya ng Ilocos Norte para bigyan ng parangal si dating pangulong Marcos. Ang tanong ko po ay ito po ba ay consistent sa mga umiiral na mga batas ng Pilipinas?” Tinio said.

The partylist representative even tried to have Malacañang rescind the holiday declaration to no avail.

“Well Mr. Speaker, alam ko na lagpas na po ng tanghali pero hindi natin tinatanggap na too late na para bawiin ang proklamasyon na ito. Ang usapin po rito ay ang historical record at ang nagpapatuloy na obligasyon ng estado. Hindi lang para sa actual reparation or actual recovery of ill-gotten wealth kung hindi yung moral obligation sa mga biktima. At mga biktima rito ay ang buong sambayanang Pilipino,” he said.
