Imelda Marcos Won Several Billion Dollar Corruption Cases Since 1990

Imelda Marcos

Imelda Marcos is known for her lavish lifestyle, clothing, and appearance. She is often linked to possession of many of the most expensive and rarest items of the world such as Picasso's paintings and pink diamonds. It is a little-known fact that despite the allegations of corruption, she won every single billion dollars worth of corruption cases since 1990.

She defended herself in many of these cases and presented documents proving the authenticity and legality of her possession of the said materials. Paintings by well-known artists like Claude Monet and Pablo Picasso is also included on her trove of worldly possessions.

But these are acquired through auctions and she claimed that most of their wealth came from gold trading. Some of this expensive jewelry are seized by PCGG and opened for auction. She said that they did not steal from the Filipino people, in fact, they are the ones who were robbed.

In many interviews throughout the years, she presented a whole stash of these documents compiled like an exhibit. Bill of Ladings or gold certificates that are worth nearly trillions of dollars shocked many people.

Is it possible that Ferdinand Marcos is indeed a successful gold trader and his holdings skyrocketed throughout the years? There are recent talks about how the Marcos Family expressed interest in getting 7000 metric tons of gold back to the Philippine treasury.

In this rare archive footage uploaded by Associated Press YouTube Channel, Imelda Marcos insisted her innocence from corruption charges in her presidential campaign 20 years ago in front of her supporters. Will history prove her innocence in the days to come? Only time will tell. You can view this rare footage above.
