The Philippines have so much gold starting when the late Ferdinand E. Marcos was still a young, and dashing lawyer. He already became two of the richest Filipinos even before he became president because of the trust of the Tallano royal family. The collection even grew abundantly when combined with the Maharlika gold and the Yamashita treasures. Brilliant as he was, Marcos made sure that they are documented for humanity and serve the Filipino people as economic support or gold reserves. This is the reason why the country never gets bankrupt like Belgium despite the world’s financial crisis.

[VIDEO]: WEALTH for HUMANITY (Ferdinand Marcos Gold).
Imelda Marcos only has the Bill of Lading
Imelda Marcos discloses to the world that she is in possession of the bill of ladings for the gold’s shipments to the different parts of the world. She even explained this to the U.S. court that acquitted her from the graft and corruption charges. She was also hailed as a very honest First Lady and the Filipinos are lucky to have her. The Marcos family do not have the rights for the deposited gold.
The Gold Collections are Kept for Humanity
The Marcos Foundation holds the rights for the gold collection as registered in the Central Bank of the Philippines. The foundation’s beneficiaries are the Filipino people. The 50 year validity period has already expired at Central bank so, the government has the jurisdiction for its assignment in cooperation with the World Bank. It is expected that the claim can be honored only when the bill of lading and the representative for the beneficiaries which is the government can be presented to the World Bank hand in hand. The overseas banks where they are deposited do not own them. The World Bank only acts as the globe’s martial for their intended use as protected by the late Marcos using his expertise in the law.
It is not clarified if the late president Marcos covered the World Bank secrecy agreement with a 50-year timeline or time deposit just prior to his death. Discussions with the World Bank, the Government, and Imelda Marcos should clarify this issue. The treasures are not for individual distribution They are collected to serve as gold reserves to support the economy.
Bongbong Marcos as President
It would be beneficial for the Filipino people if the only son of the late Ferdinand Marcos, Bongbong Marcos will one day become the president. He would know how to go about it when the right time comes. His father was a brilliant leader who always put his citizens first in line. The documentations can attest that nothing is stolen from the Philippines. Instead, he made the Filipinos the heir of the collections of wealth he came across with. Once Bongbong Marcos is president, the keeper of the rights and the representative of the beneficiaries will be one but no absolute power to own them. People who accused APO, for being a thief should be ashamed of themselves. Think about it.
