Bongbong, Imee Marcos visit Cory Aquino's wake


Saying they were there only to sympathize, two of the children of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos came to the wake of former president Corazon Aquino, who had accused him of plotting the murder of her husband Ninoy in 1983.

Ilocos Rep. Ferdinand “Bongbong" Marcos Jr. and his older sister Maria Imelda "Imee" Marcos stayed for less than 30 minutes and chatted cordially with Mrs. Aquino's eldest child Ballsy Aquino-Cruz, who greeted them beso-beso, and grandchildren Jiggy Cruz and Kiko Dee.

Bongbong and Imee declined to be interviewed extensively by the media and said that they went there only to “sympathize" with the Aquinos. Accompanying them were Bongbong's wife Lisa and Louie Tutaan, former Kabataang Barangay executive director during the Marcos regime.

"Wala, nakikiramay kami (We are only condoling with them)," Bongbong said when asked by reporters what their visit meant.
