No Wealth is Missing
There’s a vast of gold sitting illegally at the World Bank. This is what Karen Hudes, a World Bank lawyer for 20 years divulges. This coincides with former First lady Imelda Marcos’s interview with Mel Tiangco. She also showed the documents that would prove her claim. However, no wealth is missing, added Hudes. Therefore, Ferdinand Marcos is not guilty of the alleged hidden wealth.
FEM’s Secret Account
The gold is in a trust fund. It was deposited by Ferdinand Marcos in the 1950s, Hudes explained. He was not yet president at that time. Therefore his widow is right that her husband already had those wealth even before he became president.
For the Benefit of Humanity
Mrs. Marcos stresses on TV that she wants to survive at a very ripe age because of the world’s benefit. She’s the keeper of the documents at 92 years old. Although, trust funds need the approval of the trustees in coordination with the government and the heirs. This is not for her or for her family anymore. But for the world. When Bongbong Marcos is president, Congress has a task to do for the movements of the said wealth.
