Another Justice is Served to the Marcoses in the Hands of President Du30

By: Elena Grace Flores
It looks like President Rodrigo Du30 is true to his campaign promise. A couple of months after his election, the President issued a memorandum order allowing the late President Ferdinand Marcos’ burial at the heroes’ cemetery. He said that he is qualified to have his resting place there as a soldier and former President. Now, after more than 30 years, the P102-billion forfeiture complaint against President Marcos’ widow, Imelda Marcos faces its dismissal over insufficient evidence. Is the turnover of the presidency to BBM next?

Panelo’s Previous Hint

In a press briefing, Presidential spokesperson Salvador Panelo said that he uses his common sense about the Marcoses’ alleged stolen wealth. The black propaganda says that they stole around 400 Billion Dollars from the country’s coffer. Nonetheless, the Philippines never had that kind of money even until this time. How can they have an ill-gotten wealth when it cannot come from the nation’s treasury?

The Case of Imelda Marcos was Dismissed

The Sandiganbayan has dismissed the P102-billion forfeiture complaint against former First Lady Imelda Marcos, and their cronies over insufficient evidence. In a 67-page decision dated Aug. 5, the Sandiganbayan 2nd Division said the Presidential Commission on Good Government (PCGG), the agency tasked to recover the Marcoses’ ill-gotten wealth, failed to present evidence that the accused committed such crimes.

Campaigning for her Son’s Presidency

The now-90-year-old Marcos is widely acknowledged to have been a driving force behind the 21-year reign of her husband, Ferdinand. He died at age 72 in 1989, having fled to Hawaii. Amidst this corruption stories, there are groups that are focusing on Marcos’ current campaign to guide her 61-year-old son Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. to the Philippines’ vice presidency and eventually the presidency on or before the 2022 elections.

Obvious Timing

The good news about Imelda Marcos’ acquittal coincides with the Showtime Documentary Films’ The Kingmaker. This is about the Marcos family’s political reign in the Philippines, an entry to the Venice Film Festival. Another obvious timing is the impeachment complaint against the presumptive Vice President Leni Robredo. The involvement of lawyer, Larry Gadon and Sol, Gen. Jose Calida to her sedition case already raised some eyebrows. Although Bongbong Marcos cannot benefit from it directly, there’s a constitutional way to make good of the President’s promise. That is through nomination of the Congress and the leader’s direct appointment.

  • WHY CAN'T DELIVERY OF JUSTICE BE SIMPLIFIED: 1) IN MARCOS ILL-GOTTEN WEALTH: a) Add up all the recorded income of the Marcoses during their entire reign and consider this GROSS INCOME ; b) Disregard all expenses on everything so that the GROSS INCOME will be synonymous to NET INCOME. c) Consider the claims made by Imelda, Bongbong, Imee as their assets and add the billion peso wealth proven in court and those confiscated..and (d)..Subtract the Gross / Net Income to arrive at the Total Explained Wealth which by law shall be deemed forfeited in favor of the govt without need of any complicated procedure.
