The Palace expressed dismay over what it calls ''historical revisionism'' that insists life was better during the martial law years.

In a radio interview, Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda said this is a mere illusion, pointing to human rights and economic abuses under the Marcos regime.

Lacierda added President Aquino will not allow a hero's burial for the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos.

He also said the government continues working to provide compensation for human rights victims under martial law.
