The right to equal protection of laws is one of the rights guaranteed by the Constitution which the Supreme Court has safeguarded time and time again. The Constitution is the highest law of the land, therefore, the rights and guarantees provided therein cannot be easily impaired by anyone, not even the President â€“ for no is above the law.
The main issue of this research is whether or not the denial of the burial of the late former President Ferdinand E. Marcos in the Libingan ng mga Bayani by President Benigno Simeon C. Aquino III is discriminatory and violative of the equal protection clause provided under the Constitution.
This research was done using different books and cases regarding and involving equal protection as guaranteed by the Constitution.
It has been more than 20 years since the death of former President Ferdinand E. Marcos, however, his burial the at the Libingan ng mga Bayani still remains unresolved. This issue continues to divide the Filipino people so it is best to use legal basis and put closure on this urgent and sensitive matter.
