If he is elected president in the upcoming 2022 national elections, Senator Manny Pacquiao said he will review the cases related to the Marcoses’ ill-gotten wealth.
Pacquiao, who is going against ex-senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. for the presidency, said that he will reopen the case of the family’s ill-gotten wealth, noting that the family should return what they stole from the government.
“‘Yung isyu ng yaman na hawak ng Marcoses, kung ano man yung nanakaw nila sa ating gobyerno, kailangan na nila sigurong ibalik. 'Yun ang sinisigaw ng taumbayan," the senator said in an interview with ANC.
He further called for the Marcos family to apologize for the abuses that occurred during the term of his father, late president Ferdinand Marcos.
“Kung nagkamali ka, kailangan humingi ka ng patawad,” Pacquiao said.
Chastising his rival for the presidency, Pacquiao also said that Bongbong Marcos cannot say that he was still too young to know the happenings during the older Marcos’ rule
"’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, adding that Marcos Jr. cannot say he does not know anything.
The recently retired boxer is vying for the presidency in the 2022 national elections with former Manila Mayor Lito Atienza as his running mate.
