Former first lady Imelda Marcos tried it in Congress before, but can her son do better?
FEM’s Last Will and Testament Congress Hearing
In the 1990s the former first lady Imelda Marcos desperately begged Congress to hear her out about FEM’s last will and testament. She urged them to do their part in prioritizing it for the welfare of the Filipinos. They have to look into the trust fund of her husband through the Marcos foundation. However, she was not successful. Now, at her old age, she just wishes her son, Bongbong Marcos to be president. That way, it’s proceeding can start rolling.
Mrs. Marcos’ Plea to Congress
“The most urgent reason I was looking forward to my coming to this hearing of the Philippine Senate is to seek your help – Honorable Senators – to help me implement the LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT of the late President Marcos to enlist assets in the hands of Trustees, to implement the Marcos humanitarian foundation so that we can help the country in our economic crisis and help the Filipino people in their agony and suffering. “ Imelda Marcos during a Senate Hearing in the 90’s at the time of Cory Aquino. THEY IGNORED HER PLEA FOR THE NATION.
Legal Entity – Not Myth
Marcos detractors might say that the wealth for humanity is a myth. However, the late President Marcos already thought about that beforehand. That’s why they are placed in legal entities and can be obtained only through court proceedings. This should serve as a challenge to fact checkers by answering this: Why can’t the Congress face this hearing head on?
