Manny Pacquiao Willing to Open the Stolen Wealth Cases of Marcoses if Wins on 2022 Election
The presidential candidate 2022 election Senator Manny Pacquiao says he will open the stolen wealth cases of Marcoses if he wins the poll.
In an interview with the ANC, the boxer-turned-politician responded to queries about the Marcoses’ troubles, including his fellow presidential candidate Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. According to Pacquiao, the Marcos family should restore what they took and apologize to those who were abused by them during the tyrant Ferdinand Marcos’ reign.
“Yung issue ng yaman na hawak ng Marcoses ay kung anuman yung nanakaw nila sa ating gobyerno, kailangan siguro ibalik yung sinisigaw ng taumbayan,” Pacquiao said in an interview with the ANC.
He went on to say that if he is elected president, he is willing to look into issues involving the Marcoses’ stolen wealth. The senator also backed a request for former senator Ferdinand Marcos Jr., the former dictator’s son, to apologize for his father’s misdeeds.
“Sang-ayon ako dyan dahil kailangan kung nagkamali ka, marunong kang humingi ng patawad. Hindi yan tama na sabihin na wala pa siyang alam sa mga nangyayari noong panahon ng tatay niya… Hindi niya pwedeng sabihin na wala siyang alam,” the aspiring president said.
Bongbong was scolded by the senator for claiming that he had no idea what was going on while his father was the president. He pointed out that Bongbong, the late dictator’s son, is inaccurate in claiming that he was too young to understand what was going on during his father’s regime.
“Doon sa sinabi ni Bongbong, ayaw kong manira pero ito yung sinabi niya, na bata pa raw siya nung nangyari yun which is hindi po yan tama na sabihin niya na wala pa siyang alam doon sa mga nangyayari noong panahon ng tatay niya,” Pacquiao said.
When his father was deposed in 1986, Pacquiao remarked that the younger Marcos was dressed in camouflage green. Pacquiao linked Bongbong’s popularity to the Marcos campaign’s social media strategy, but added that voters should be informed about the candidates’ character.
