Presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos on Wednesday, March 16 claimed that there are a lot of “fake news” when it comes to the issue of his family’s alleged ill-gotten wealth.
“There’s a lot of fake news involved there, let’s leave it to the lawyers to discuss it because the so-called facts that they quote are not facts at all,” Marcos said during the Kapihan sa Manila Bay news forum after the subject was brought up.
“They are just presumptions, they are not familiar with the cases or they choose not to be familiar with the case so yeah, it’s in the courts,” he said about commenters on the longstanding issue.
“In my case, whatever the court orders me to do, I will do,” the Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP) standard-bearer nonetheless vowed.
Marcos is the son of former strongman President Ferdinand Marcos, whose tenure in Malacañang began in 1965 and lasted until his ouster via the EDSA People Power Revolution in 1986.
