A Facebook post claiming the late president Corazon Aquino had her husband’s bust and monuments built is false.
In fact, the bust and monuments included in a photo collage posted on April 29 by Facebook page Asintado Tv were commemorative of former Sen. Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr.’s death and were built after Mrs. Aquino, more popularly known as “Cory,” was no longer president. One was even built after she died in 2009.
Asintado Tv’s photo collage showed buildings and infrastructure it labeled “mga pinatayo ni Marcos” (those built by Marcos). Senator Aquino’s bust and monuments were described as “mga pinapatayo ni Cory Aquino” (those built by Cory Aquino).
