Chief Justice Diosdado Peralta has assured that he has no leanings with the Marcos family.

“It is not correct (to say) that I have been favoring the Marcoses,” he said recently despite favoring the burial of late dictator Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani.

“In the case of the burial, there is no law or even a resolution prohibiting the burial of a former President,” he explained.

The Chief Justice argued that the SC “cannot resolve cases based on public opinion.”

“We should base our decision on the evidence, the facts, and the applicable laws,” he added.

Meanwhile, the late dictator’s son, former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., has a pending poll protest against Vice President Leni Robredo before the SC, sitting as Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET).

“If you ask me what I would do as chief justice on the petition, as I said I would decide the case, although I am not the ponente on the evidence and the law applicable, you can be assured of that,” Peralta said about the poll protest.
