Ilocos Norte 2nd District Representative Imelda Marcos’ office has sent invitations to the 100th birth anniversary of former president Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani even to the family’s fiercest critics.
Among the Marcos critics invited were Akbayan Representative Tom Villarin and Albay Representative Edcel Lagman.
Villarin said he “puked” on the invitation.
“Yes I did get an invite and puked on it! With President Duterte’s blessings and absolution of their sins, including his push for their immunity from prosecution, the Marcoses are enjoying their heyday since they were booted out by people power. While Duterte and Marcos party in the Libingan, the blood of thousands killed by both of them cry out for justice! The day of reckoning will come and history will judge harshly those who kill the truth and our own humanity,” VIllarin said.
Lagman, meanwhile, slammed the Marcoses “lack of shame.”
“” think it’s the height of the lack of shame for the Marcos family to celebrate the 100th birth anniversary of the late president in the LNMB which was desecrated by his very interment in that memorial park,” he said.
Part of the invitation reads: “Honorable Imelda Romualdez Marcos, her children and grandchidlren request the honor of your presence in the commemoration of the 100th Birth Anniversary of President Ferdinand Edralin Marcos on September 11, 2017. A mass will be held at 9:30 in the morning at the Libingan ng mga Bayani, Bayani Road, Taguig City. to be followed by a short program and lunch.”
