[VIDEO]: Bongbong Marcos welcome to visit United States
Transfer of Human Rights Verdict
President-elect Bongbong Marcos can invoke his immunity as head of state during visits in the United States. This is what Wendy R. Sherman said during their meeting recently. She’s the United States Deputy Secretary of State. The two also discussed ongoing PH-U.S. relations. He’s now safe from arrest which is a transfer of verdict from his father’s alleged human rights violations as the administrator of their family’s assets.
Human Rights Talks
In the US, cases harass Imelda, Imee, and Bongbong. They allegedly failed to comply with the decisions of a Hawaii court’s rulings. This is on how the family’s seized assets should have been disbursed to the alleged victims of human rights violations. Their appeal was denied. So, it’s set aside because for the family, the transfer of verdict or the cases themselves are questionable. Anyway, the US government got their properties there.
Visiting Force Agreement
Back to Sherman, she’s happy that the visiting forces agreement is back before the end of the Duterte administration. They are looking forward to it to continue under the new Marcos administration. So, they better be good to PBBM. For most Filipinos, such human rights violation charges are just desperate means to extract money from the Marcoses.
