[VIDEO]: Bongbong Marcos on his family’s wealth
Sen. Francis “Chiz” Escudero on the government’s plans to abolish some of the government agencies that include the PCGG said that, it must be accounted for first. It is a pity to know later on that the sequestered possessions are actually stolen already from the agency’s coffers.
Hidden Misdeeds of the Agency
Escudero adds that to abolish the agency may only “lead to the consequence of hiding misdeeds by the agency in the past.” The depreciation and deterioration of some assets like paintings, jewelry, buildings, shares of stocks show their lack of due diligence in its care. Not to mention losses,” he said.
30 Years is Enough
Senate President Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III, also stresses that the PCGG should already finish its task. It only has a single function and 30 years is a long time. Besides, the remaining target is just imaginary.All pending cases are in the courts. It is not certain if there’s still wealth hidden for that matter.
Hands-Off to the Cases
Marcos explains that his family cannot linger anymore with any battles that relate to the alleged hidden wealth of his father. They are with the Marcos estate’s lawyers. Whatever the courts may decide on what to do with them are the jurisdiction of the laws and not of the Marcoses.
