Former president Ferdinand Marcos can now be buried at the Libingan ng mga Bayani (Heroes' Cemetery).
The Supreme Court on Tuesday, November 8, finally cleared all legal obstacles to a Marcos burial. By a vote of 9-5, the High Court rejected petitions that sought to stop the burial of the late President Marcos.
