The wealth of humanity that most mainstream media refers to as stolen by the Marcoses cannot be retrieved by anyone without the long process in the Congress. The late President Ferdinand Marcos’ family cannot even benefit from it. They face great risk of being persecuted for the crime they did not commit. As a lawyer, President Du30 said that it is logical for the Marcos family to ask for immunity from such suits in exchange for the handover of the wealth to the government. But they didn’t so far.

Du30: If I am the Marcoses

Although Du30 said he will not advise the Marcoses anything, he said that it doesn’t make sense for them to return the wealth and end up in jail. “If I am the Marcoses, and I would return that wealth, it is logical to “ask for immunity.” Otherwise, keep the treasures because you might go to jail. If you give them immunity, fine. If you don’t give them immunity, fine. But they might not return any money. Then you’ll have to look to the ends of the earth to get them.




Not Asking for Immunity

However, the President clarifies that; “they did not ask any immunity.” ” I could not guarantee it also. I know that I’m not the proper authority to do that,” he added. Aside from the Congress, the Supreme Court also has the say. Therefore, the end result could not happen during his term.




Long Process in the Congress

The President makes sure that Congress will pass a law for the turnover to happen. “It’s a long process,” he said. “It does not belong to me. It was just a signal from the Marcoses they will bring back what the people are believing to be theirs.” The Marcos family also has the right to defend themselves that the wealth was not stolen by their patriarch or else they could have direct access to it.








Not PCGG-Like Recovery

Du30 clarifies that the wealth that the Marcoses plan to return is different from the Presidential Commission on Good Government or PCGG’s efforts. It is the government agency tasked to recover the billions of pesos allegedly plundered by the late President Ferdinand Marcos under the Aquino administration despite not being convicted. This is due to the strong legal evidence that is recognized worldwide. The Marcoses are confident that once the actual status is disclosed through a proceeding, the truth will set them free.

  1. If I am to decide and assuming that I am the President..I would welcome the Marcos generosity in donating their wealth for the Filipino.

    No need to discuss with those anti Marcoses.

    Those wealth will be used for the Filipino people in need.

  2. If the Marcoses are helping the country by bringing back that wealth, why do they need to be prosecuted if they can present all legal documents to prove that it was not stolen? Now, if these “feeling geniuses “Anti-Marcos can get the wealth WITHOUT the aide of any from the Marcos family, do it, then bring them to court! And to the Marcoses, forget helping the country, you had suffered so much persecutions because of false accusations.Anyway, you have done so much for the country, let’s see what these idiots can bring!
