- Imee Marcos said that it is their duty to tell their side of the story
- She added that she is okay with enduring the negative comments of their haters
- Imee also noted that people should allow them to speak as well
Newly-proclaimed Senator Imee Marcos said that now is the time for her family to tell their side of the story.
KAMI learned that Imee is also trying to endure the negative comments of their family’s bashers.
"I have tremendous respect for everybody's opinion, but I think they should also allow us to speak and we should also be allowed to have our breathing space," Imee told CNN Philippines.
“Sabi ko nga sa kanila, eh, ‘wag sila matakot sa akin. Kung sinuman ang mga bashers at haters, ‘yung mga galit sa Marcos, okay lang. Tiis tiis na lang dahil hindi naman mapaghiganti ang pamilya ko, we’re not really vindictive and we’ve put up with it for a long time, too,” she added.
Imee also commented about the allegations of historical revisionism about the ruling of the late President Ferdinand Marcos.
"We just never told our side of the story. Not to revise history, but because we had no access to media. We had one side of the story. Nobody was interested and we were all just a bit frightened of what we knew, but I think it's our duty now to say what we know and our side of the story," she said.
As previously reported by KAMI, Imee was proclaimed as a senator on Wednesday. She was the 8th candidate to make it to the “Magic 12.”
Imee is the daughter of the late President Ferdinand Marcos and former First Lady Imelda Marcos. Before joining the Senatorial race, she also served as the governor of Ilocos Norte.
