Amid the controversy being faced by the senatorial candidate Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos after critics questioned the legitimacy of her educational background, one netizen stood up and tried to defend the former presidential daughter.
Netizen Evangeline Matunog Lapore posted some photos that could prove that Gov. Imee Marcos really graduated from UP College of Law in 1983.
In the photos, Lapore shared her album which shows the graduation of her brother in UP College of Law held at the Meralco Theater.
Lapore claimed that her brother is a seatmate of Imee Marcos and they graduated at the same time as the photo shows.
Former President Ferdinand Marcos Sr. and former First Lady Imelda Marcos also showed in the photo as guests of honor.
“Graduation sa College of Law sa UP 1983! Paanong walang diploma na kasama sila ng kapatid ko.Seatmate pa classroom?” Lapore said.
You can see the photos below:
Three weeks ago, Imee Marcos also posted photos taken during the same event, saying that her father and mother supposedly pinned her cum laude medal.
However, University of the Philippines Diliman Registrar insisted that they have no records that Imee Marcos graduated from the school.
“There is no record of her graduation from UPD nor any honors or academic distinctions received with the University Registrar’s office.” the University said in the statement.
Aside from UP, Imee’s Princeton degree legitimacy was also questioned.
As of writing, the post already reached 2,000 shares on social media giving another hope for the Marcos supporters that Imee is not lying on her educational background.
