The Supreme Court then again upsets the Opposition after they decided that the Php 51-Billion claim that the Presidential Commission on Good Government (PCGG) laid against the family of Marcos and their late men were completely trashed under a number of reasons.



The said claim was a case that the PCGG filed back in July 1987, where it states that the Marcos family and their men create ways to obtain their ill-gotten wealth through “schemes, devices or stratagems”.

It was Associate Justice Noel Tijam who penned the 28-page decision of the Supreme Court that was based on the Sandiganbayan’s 2010 decision of rejecting the claim due to “for reconveyance, reversion, restitution and damages.”

“Juxtaposing the specific allegations in the complaint with the Republic’s documentary and testimonial evidence and as against the respondents’ documentary and testimonial evidence,” a part of the 28-page SC rulling stated.



 “The Court agrees with the Sandiganbayan that the weight of evidence fails to preponderate in the Republic’s favor,”  the ruling continued.

Prominent names in the filed case was

·  former first lady Imelda Marcos
· former businessman Rodolfo Cuenca and his son Roberto Cuenca
· former Philippine National Bank (PNB) president Panfilo Domingo
·  former trade minister Roberto Ongpin
·  former Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP) officer Don Ferry
·   and 11 other individuals.

The SC also mentioned the lack thereof integral truth of the evidences presented by the PCGG, may it be through documentary or testimonial evidences need to go through reassessment or possibly reexamination.



“Unfortunately, the limited and discretionary judicial review allowed under Rule 45 does not envision a re-evaluation of the sufficiency of the evidence upon which respondent court’s action was predicated,” the ruling continued on.
