He insists that the interment of the deposed strongman at Libingan ng mga Bayani did not violate the Supreme Court ruling on the sensitive issue. Calida, led government lawyers in defending President Duterte’s order authorizing the military funeral stressed that there was no legal impediment to stop the Marcoses from burying their patriarch at Libingan.

Cannot Reverse the Decision Made
The Supreme Court will not allow exhumation which is unChristian, says Calida. Digging out Marcos remains will be against Christianity. Marcos also should not be isolated. If they insist on digging him out, they should also do so to the rest of the soldiers and presidents buried there to be fair.
Executive Action not a Political Question
Duterte’s participation in the Marcos burial is clearly an executive action that the president is entitled to and should not be challenged with a political question because it will be a rebellion to do so.
