Philipppine National Police chief Director General Ronald "Bato" dela Rosa revealed that he was among other Filipinos who was surprised on the unannounced burial of late dictator Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani (LNMB)
“Naisahan kayo ‘no? Ako nga naisahan din ako eh. Kahapon ko lang nalaman. Pareho tayo,” he said.Dela Rosa admitted that he only learned about the burial on Thursday morning, according to a report of GMA News.

“Wala naman sigurong magka-interes na patayin yan dahil patay naman diba? Doon ako nag-concentrate kay Kerwin kasi baka mamaya, mamatay na naman, mamroblema tayo,” he said as he explained that he was too focused on the safety of Kerwin Espinosa, son of Albuera Mayor Rolando Espinos who was shot dead inside the jail.
“Basta ang samin, let us be very clear on this, yung papel namin diyan is to maintain peace and order sa palibot ng Libingan ng mga Bayani kung may ralyista,” Dela Rosa said.
“As far as the specifics ng libing, bakit ililibing, kailan ililibing, saan ililibing eh ang may hawak niyan is the military, [at] yung mayari ng Libingan ng mga Bayani so sila at tsaka yung pamilya ang nag-uusap diyan,” the PNP chief said.
