Cherry Cobarrubias: "Martial law was the best thing that happened to our country."

SHARE:

The former spokesperson of Imelda Marcos said that the Martial law was beneficial to the Philippines.

In an interview with GMA, Cherry Cobarrubias, leader of Marcos Loyalists for God, Country, and People, said that the implementation of Martial law back then was the best thing that happened to the Philippines.

She said that it was the greatest medium to stop the violence during Marcos's regime.

"Alam mo, unang una, hindi ako naniniwala na restored ang democracy. Unang una, hindi naman namatay ang demokrasya, eh. Nag-declare lang si Marcos ng Martial Law because that was necessary—that was the height of the cold war, ang daming kaguluhan. No choice ang presidente kundi ipagtanggol ang bayan," Cobbarubias said.

"Ito ang pinakamagandang instrument to prevent the violent takeover of the communist groups. Kaya nga kung sasabihing babaguhin natin ang kasaysayan, talagang babaguhin natin nang maitama," she added.

She called on the youth for protesting against the late dictator's burial at the Libingan ng mga Bayani as they did not completely understand history.

"'Yun ang nakakaawa, kasi 'yung mga estudyante, alam mo naman na hindi nila naiintindihan ang kasaysayan."

"Sabi ko nga, the best thing that ever happened to our country was when Marcos declared Martial Law. Grabe ang kaguluhan noon,"Cobbarubias said.

Cobarrubias, who once served as spokesperson for former first lady, Ilocos Rep. Imelda Marcos, said claimed that human rights violations during the Martial law were exaggerated.

"'Yung kaso sa Hawaii nu'ng mag-file 'yung human rights claimants, 3,000 'yung sinasabing claimants—doble-doble pa 'yung pangalan kasi away ng mag-asawa, away ng boyfriend, nakalagay doon na victims. Tapos 'yung abogado nila, pumunta dito, naglagay ng tables kung saan-saang probinsya, sabi kung sino 'yung mga biktima ni Marcos, magpalista," Cobbarubias said.

"What I'm trying to say is walang katotohanan. Masyado nilang pinalaki. Kasi sabi ko nga, Marcos has no human rights case in the Philippines. Sana nu'ng nawala si Marcos sa Pilipinas, nag-file sila. Mas nag-ano sila nu'ng claim nu'ng pera sa Hawaii. Pagkatapos ngayon sasabihin nila na biktima sila, saan-saan sila nanggaling," she added.
