It has long been a debatable issue whether the body of Marcos in the mausoleum in Batac, Ilocos Norte is real or wax.
But a report from Rappler revealed that the day of Marcos' burial in Libingan ng mga Bayani on Thursday, a visitor in the mausoleum saw Marcos' figure was still there.
Marcos loyalists felt cheated about it.
However, a source who was part of the burial preparation for the late president Ferdinand Marcos explained that they 'left' a replica prior to the burial of the late dictator
“Friday early morning, the body was switched. So ‘yung katawan na nandun na nakita ng media was actually a decoy. It was a replica. So the reason why they opened the mausoleum at 11 am is to show na it’s normal, andun ba ‘yung katawan ang everything. Alam ko there’s 2 or 3 replicas nung katawan,” said the source who doesn't want to be identified.READ ALSO: Prominent Lawyer CRITICIZED Nuns For USING Students In An Anti-Marcos Rally
“I’m actually tempted to say that if the coffin is filled with chocolates and candies, people would believe me. But I bet on my life that it’s really the actual body [that was buried],” added the source.
