"Like what Marcos did for 21 years, he caught us off-guard like a thief in the night," he said.
"His burial is anything but noble. Even in death, he is a thief," added Drilon, who began his career in government under President Corazon Aquino in 1986.
Aquino was swept into the presidency by a popular bloodless uprising in February 1986 known as the People Power Revolution that ended 21 years of Marcos rule.
Filipinos were shocked when news of the funeral began to spread mid-morning Friday. Marcos was laid to rest at noon.
Robredo noted that the Marcos family's decision to go ahead with the burial defied the law because the Supreme Court ruling handed down on November 8 was not yet final and executory.
