Communications Secretary issued the following statement on the Anti-FM burial rally which was staged on Sunday, August 14.
"The President has repeatedly said that he would allow any form of protest, like organizing mass actions against the (former President) FM (Ferdinand Marcos)'s burial at the LNMB (Libingan ng mga Bayani).
This is consistent with his philosophy that criticism - good or bad, true or not - is part of the territory of governance in public.
The President's stance, however, remains firm: There is clarity in the regulations governing the late President Marcos' burial.
The President shall therefore remain undistracted and it shall be governance as usual with his full and undivided attention in winning the war against drugs, criminality and corruption. "
