MANILA, Philippines (UPDATE) – A sealed letter addressed to President Aquino from a still unidentified person was left in front of the tomb of his parents, Ninoy and Corazon Aquino.
Lamberto Peña, manager of the Manila Memorial Park, said the cemetery's security guard noticed the letter at around 8 a.m. today.
"Meron po kasing inilagay na sulat doon, selyado yung envelope. Iniligay lang doon sa pilar ng poste ng puntod ni Senador Aquino, ipinatanggal na lang po namin kasi hindi naman po proper place yung pinaglagyan at kung may sulat man sila kay Presidente, hindi ito yung proper venue para iparating yung nilalaman ng sulat nila," Peña said.
"Itinurn over na lang po namin sa kinauukulan, and then kung dadating si Presidente, sa PSG (Presidential Security Group) na lang po namin itu-turn over yun," he added.
Aquino's sister, Viel Aquino-Dee, arrived at her parents' tombs at around 1:40 p.m. with her family. Aquino-Dee reportedly decided to visit her parents ahead of her siblings due to a scheduled trip. – report from Alex Calda, dzMM
