‘Re­ject En­rile, Mar­cos his­tor­i­cal re­vi­sion­ism’

Panay News - - METRO BACOLOD -

MANILA – A lawyer who served as a spokesman for for­mer Pres­i­dent Co­ra­zon Aquino urged the pub­lic to re­ject any at­tempt to re­vise his­tory by ly­ing about what re­ally hap­pened dur­ing the mar­tial law era un­der the late dic­ta­tor Fer­di­nand Mar­cos Sr.

For­mer se­na­tor J uan Ponce En­rile had made state­ments that con­tra­dicted his­tor­i­cal ac­counts, and even his own pro­nounce­ments, in an in­ter­view with the late strong man’ s son and name­sake, Fer­di­nand “Bong­bong” Mar­cos Jr.

Rene Saguisag said En­rile, who was de­fense min­is­ter dur­ing the Mar­cos regime and was con­sid­ered as the chief ar­chi­tect of mar­tial law, was just pro­tect­ing his rep­u­ta­tion as he sees the son of the late dic­ta­tor as a po­ten­tial pres­i­dent.

“Why af­ter more than 30 years iyan? ngayon lang natin Bong­bong. We have to alert na­di­dinig Kausap pa si the pub­lic, ’ ’ dalawa, ei­ther

pag nag-usap yang nag­sis­i­n­un­gal­ing,” Saguisag
