Divine intervention? Imee Marcos exclaims, ‘praise Him!’ after Sandiganbayan junks ill-gotten wealth case
Senator Imee Marcos hailed Friday the Sandiganbayan’s decision to dismiss another ill-gotten wealth case against her father, the late President Ferdinand Marcos, and mother, former First Lady Imelda Marcos.
”Praise Him! Sabi justice delayed is justice denied, at 34 years nang nakalipas pero marubdob pa rin ang pasasalamat namin,” Marcos told reporters in a text message.
Citing inusfficiency of evidence, the Sandiganbayan Fourth Division has junked Civil Case No. 0007 seeking the forfeiture of P267 in million ill-gotten wealth obtained by the Marcoses through spouses Fe and Ignacio Gimenez.
The anti-graft court said the prosecution did not submit original copies of documentary evidence while some of the exhibits submitted were unreadable because they were photocopied.
The Sandiganbayan in August also junked a P102-billion forfeiture case involving the Marcoses and 11 of their cronies due to insufficiency of evidence.
