The TRUTH about Marcos Wealth - a MUST READ!

Since there are so many misinformed people out there who consistently debate that Marcos wealth was stolen and consider the YAMASHITA treasure a mere legend. Cory herself know the source of Marcos wealth, but publishing the truth won't benefit her and KAMAG-ANAK politically/financially -- REPUTATION is crucial to ensure her and her heirs established estate/rule over our country. Being passionate about the truth, I find it my obligation to let everyone know this and stop the nonsense epic drama featuring Marcos as Pontius Pilate and Aquino as Jesus Chris.


The following is extracted from Eric A. San Juan's book "Marcos Legacy Revisited," courtesy of "Dirk." The preamble and after word is by, author San Juan and the letter itself does exist and was circulated in the "market" soon after it was written.

Since the search for the so-called Marcos fortune began, the nation has been treated to all sorts of reports about cash being stashed in the banks of Switzerland, and gold bullion at Fort Knox, the Bank of England and many places in the Philippines. The diggings at Fort Santiago sanctioned by no less than President Aquino's national security adviser showed how much the government put its faith in the story of the hidden gold treasure.

The diggings have stopped but unknown to the public, a small group of men continues to operate at People's Television 4 station under the tutelage of Conrado Limcaoco Jr, for no higher purpose than to pursue leads about the Yamashita treasure with the assistance of Noel Soriano, the National Security Adviser of Cory Aquino.

In the last failed coup, military rebels claimed to have carted away from PTV-4 documents pertaining to this gold search. On the basis of these papers, the Rebolusyonaryong Alyansang Makabayan-Soldiers Of the Filipino People-Young Officers Union claimed that the Limcaoco group had recovered some gold and had gathered facts that lead them to believe the Yamashita treasure exists, but they appeared determined to hide this from the Filipino people.

Limcaoco denies the charges. But he does not deny the existence of his work and what he has been doing. He says that the group's task is to evaluate every bit of inforwhation that comes along, without prejudging it.

Most of what comes along is mind-boggling, but Limcaoco says he is not prepared to reject anything.

Based on the group's work, an October 10, 1989, Limcaoco's staff prepared the draft of a report to President Aquino, which proposes to tell all. Limcaoco says he never signed the letter, and that it was not sent at all. But even without the final signature and without it having been sent, the letter reads better than a story, whether factual or fictional.

The following is Limcaoco's letter to Mrs. Aquno:

...next post



    10 October 1989

    President of the Philippines
    Malacanang, Manila

    Dear Mrs. President,

    I have never waivered in my commitment to serve you and our people over the past few years. Even in our bleakest moments, I was confident we would triumph -- and thus far, we have.

    In the course of tracking down the right-wing military adventurists a task which is continuing, we have unearthed a story -- parts of which you may have heard before -- but which we feel deserves a serious second glance at this particular historical conjuncture. I ask you to please read through this report personally and not show or pass it on to other officials of this govemment until we have had the chance to meet, should you feel such a meeting is necessary after going through this. Please suspend your judgment and disbelief and know that this report was written after much in-depth intelligence work and soul-searching on my part.

    I. Background/Premises

    Our work thus far supports the contention that the Yamashita treasure does exist and appears to be the basis for the Marcos' hidden wealth. What has been recovered and sequestered to date is not even the tip of the proverbial iceberg.

    Over 90% of the worlds legal and illegal gold production were in Asia at the outbreak of World War II. Why? History will tell us why. From the galleon trade where spices and silk were traded for gold and other precious metals to the days before World War II when the Europeans, fearing a war in the West, moved their gold to their Asian colonies and former colonies for safekeeping. Thus, England moved their gold to Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia -France to Vietnam, and so forth. The rest you know. The Japanese brought the gold here and had to leave it here as they retreated in defeat

    From 1967 to 1973, Cipirino Garcia Sta. Romana found some of this gold and began shipping it out of the country mostly to the PROC. In 1973/4, Sta. Romana signed a power of attorney over the gold to Marcos. More of the treasure was found with the help of treasuro maps, foreign treasure hunters and the AFP (many of the retired generals now in Hawaii) in subsequent years. It was either (1) shipped out as is, (2) laundered via the Central Bank reminting facilities and through other means and then shipped out, or (3) reburied under the custodianship of trusted subalterns or heirs. Further, there reportedly is still 35-37% of the treasure still to be discovered -- which the likes of Noel Soriano and company have set their eyes on.

    II. The Global Implications

    There is a forty (40) year period within which another country may claim treasure/property taken from it with another country. This period lapsed in November 1985.

    An interesting question is -- who owns the gold? Or better still -- who wants the gold? Technically, now the people of the Philippines can lay some claim to the gold, assuming Marcos was not an innocent "finder" or "treasure hunter" entitled to a share, but instead used his position and influence to find it, ship it out, and even sell some of it. To answer the question --

    The countries of Europe want the gold! They believe much of it was theirs to begin with. They want or need it so much they are even willing to buy some of it back. A 1983/84 sale we are reconstructing indicates that the 11 monarchs of Europe syndicated a deal involving over 120 banks with the Bank of England as the lead bank to buy back some of the gold. This transaction is known by the code JOB/HK/25 which I will detail later.

    The 12 Asian countries conquered and plundered by Japan in World War II want the gold! They believe they have a stake in this as it was from their countries that the Japanese took it from. Marcos struck deals with many of these Asian countries. He shipped back some of the gold to them in return for a share in the booty. For example, the gold shipped back to Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and India are reportedly split now at 70% of the particular country and 30% for Marcos. Japan allegedly has been promised 50% of Marcos 30% in these Asian settlements. Mrs. Yamashita has alleged shares in some of the gold stock in Asia. I will also detail this later in this report.

    The United States of America wants some of the gold! The US had virtually no gold of its own to begin with. They need it to back their currency and to stave off economic difficulties. Marcos shipped large stocks of gold to the USA. Marcos allegedly committed to sell 300,000 metric tons of the gold to the US. Obviously, the Asian countries and the Europeans would look with displeasure at this -- if they knew about it or could prove it We have evidence that at least 2 major sales were negotiated with CIA and US Treasury front organizations in 1983/4 and 1984/5. One of these transactions in 1984/5 codenamed YAB42 was apparently aborted because of a difference in payment terms. The US offered 20% in cash and 80% in US government securities.

    Marcos wanted 80% in cash and 20% in securities. The amount involved is staggering. A taped conversation with one of the buyer negotiators indicate that senior executive officials of the US Government during the period had to get Congressional approval to increase the US foreign debt to accommodate this deal. As late as mid-1986, US officials were trying to convince Marcos to conclude the deal in Hawaii. In 1987, feelers from their front organizations -- e.g., Navegacion Global's Mr. Bullock were sent to this government (A letter from Mr. Bullock was received by Malacanang Records Office last October 8, 1987 and is enclosed as Annex A). I believe some of our people may have even sat with Mr Bullock. I do not think they knew what Bullock vas really up to -- or understood or believed him if he told them. We allegedly have gold sitting in US depositories -- which the US government wants badly. They reportedly cannot release their new "rainbow dollar" (multicolored dollar bills) that are already printed without this gold to back it up.

    III. The Marcos Scheme of Things

    Marcos compartmentalized this whole operation so that very few could piece it all together. We have managed to assemble quite a number of Marcos' real operating people -- those that shipped the gold out, found the buyers, negotiated the transactions We are slowy piecing the puzzle together.

    For each Marcos account, whether in cash or in bullion, these are assigned trustees and signatories -- some of whom do not even know each other. There are secret bank/depository arrangements such as access code and security countersigns.

    Before his death, Marcos organized what is called THE UMBRELLA, a network of 54 people whose task is to manage these assets in the event of his death. In theory, the umbrella, not Mrs. Marcos or his children would execute his will. At least two members of the umbrella's inner core of about one dozen are already working with us. The umbrella has never been tested in action before. Marcos has never died before. Those who now work with me tell me that the chairman of the umbrella is a very decent man who can be talked to on behalf of our nation. Apparently, there is no sharp cleavage between this group (family, heirs, followers, etc.) and Imelda's. Most of what we know is FM's not Imelda's. It is doubtful that even she would know all of FM's holdings. The destabilization efforts will most probably come from Imelda's camp not surprisingly. Marcos is reported to have revised his will a few months before he died, asking former Solicitor General Estelito Mendoza to Hawaii for this purpose. Imelda was reportedly vehemently against the revision. We are trying, through the umbrella, to get a copy of this will.

    Exactly how much gold is involved? The estimates vary, and understandably so because of the complex shipping procedures and the compartmentalized nature of the operation.

    I have seen documents saying that the gold under the control of the umbrella (there are smaller stocks not reported to or controlled by the umbrella) is in the neighborhood of 1.33 million metric tons (MT). Whether one believes this figure or a lessor figure is not material given the magnitude of the entire scenario. One metric ton of gold is worth about $11 million. The Phippines' annual gold production is estimated at between 40-60 metric tons The world's "legal" annual gold production, which is regulated by the London gold cartel so as not to upset gold pricesas well as the value of currencies of the world, is estimated at between 1,200 to 1,400 metric tons.

    So, where is the gold? How much of it have we traced thus far?

  • IV. Where Is It?

    Our sources have pinpointed the locations, volume, and details of many of the Marcos and Imelda gold accounts around the world.

    We have left out the volume figures for countries other than the United States which are relevant for understanding points raised in other sections of the report We do have the detailed breakdown of these other accounts in the other countries but thought it best to omit these for now. The volume/amounts involved are staggering and may be subject to misinterpretation There is admittedly a possibility in some instances of double-counting an entry because of the process of shipping and laundering the gold from one country to another. We can present the figures per country and per bank should you wish to see them.

    Whatever volume figures are ultimately believed or proven, the magnitude remains astounding. The gold was shipped out in a span of more than a decade from the late sixties to the mid-eighties. In the later frenzied stages from 1983-85, all forms of transport were used from commercial and chartered ocean vessels and aircraft to the military aircraft of the Philippines.

    A. Asia

    1. PROC -- in various depositories in Southern China & Switzerland; joint IRM/FM stock

    -- an amount allegedly given to Mao Tse Tung by IRM, 1973, now with Madam Mao

    2. Singapore -- in three banks in Singapore; banks and signatories identified

    -- an amount reportedly given to Lee Kuan Yew by IRM in 1975, now in Tatlee Bank, Singapore

    3. Malaysia -- in Bank Negara (Central bank), shipped 1973

    4. Indonesia -- in at least 4 banks in Jakarta, 9,600 MT sold in 1987 for FM to Union Bank of Switzerland

    5. India -- in various depositories; one 94 year-old trustee identified

    6. Hong Kong -- in 10 Hong Kong banks; banks, signatories, account numbers, etc. identified

    7. Marianas -- in private storage, IRM's stock; trustee identified

    8. Palau -- in private storage, IRM's stock, trustee identified

    9. Philippines -- 4,600 pieces, 75 kgs. in 18 identified banks in Metro Manila

    -- more in private storage, some identified

    -- more still to be dug up estimated at 400,000 MT

    NOTES: Nos. 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 which are FM stocks are probably covered by the 70-30 deal with each country. No. 1 still has to be studied further, as both IRM and Madame Mao are no longer in their respective nation's political structures. Nos. 7 & 8 are also IRM stocks and are not probably covered by the 70-30 deal. Japan and Mrs. Yamashita have their stakes here as mentioned. Mrs. Yamashita is co-owner of some Hongkong stock (already identified). Japan may expect 50% of FM's 30% in these Asian settlements.

    A. US and Environs

    1. 38,000 MT -- various identified depository banks in New York

    2. 72,000 MT -- Fort Knox, account no. identified

    3. 18,300 MT -- in a New York bank; signatories, account codes identified

    4. 62,000 MT -- various identified depository banks; Canada, Nevada, California, and Panama

    NOTES: These were shipped out covering a period of more than 10 years from 1973-1983, The MAFIA and the CIA helped ship it, including some monitored shipments through Clark Air Base. Nos. 1 & 2 formed the stock for the YAB42 transaction to be detailed later Nos. 3 & 4 were also being sold in 1983-1985. It is doubtful any of these transactions were actually consumated.

    5. Bahamas -- Banco Bahamas; trustee identified

    6. Panama -- Bank of Panama; possible 1983 sales through Navegacion Global's Bullock

    B. Europe

    1. England -- in 4 identified London depository banks; IRM's stock

    -- shipped 1978-85, flown to and reminted in Switzerland, then on to London in GLD bars

    2. Switzerland -- in various depository banks, some banks and signatories identified

    3. FRG -- in various depositories in Luxembourg and Bonn

    -- Fabian Ver and Edna Camcam's account, some lent to back up FRG's currency

    C. Africa -- FM owns 40% of 4 leading gold mining and processing firms

    Hmmm summary -- the thing is, that is already the summary the PDF-- but just like a super duper summary -- pretty much says Marcos wealth is indeed YAMASHITA GOLD -- in this document is a letter to Cory Aquino since she herself did some YAMASHITA treasure hunt -- I think mentioned in the other thread she approximately recovered some $4.6B -- major flooding happened, the digging in Fort Bonifacio was just a front to hide the true location.

    This letter shows all the gold locations, estimated worth and the possibility that MARCOS is indeed the richest man in the world -- far richer than the entire U.S.

    Also please take note the letter was written in 1989 -- when GOLD was just approx $500-$600/ounce

    at present it is $1220 US/ounce

    Also if you noticed in the letter the unit of Marcos Gold is in MT (metric tons) - 1 metric ton = 35 273.9619 ounces

    anyway just do the math

    @*****, sabi mo expert ka ng oracle. how about SAP :lol:
  • Where's the gold --- look at the list of nations above, where the gold are located and some have names tied to it.

    Well, I doubt the Philippines or officials working to get FM's gold will
    get it all -- it will be close to impossible. If indeed true, imagine if the gold was taken out of each country it will be a global catastrophe. GOLD is the only unit right now that remains CONSTANT. U.S.A. is pretty much bankrupt, owing China trillions!!! If you take out the gold deposit in U.S.A. that can greatly affect the value of the U.S. dollar (so another domino effect).

    I am not sure, I read some articles here and there some $5B-$10B was recovered by PCGG... only $2B was documented -- but there are no documentations on the allotment of recovered gold.
  • jijijiji PExer
    thanks mayagibson. thank you for the information :) now i know what's the truth *okay*
  • I read in a book ..forgot where...that if Switzerland were to return back the gold deposits of the Marcoses, the banking system of their country would collapse..thus, they opted not to cooperate

  • The thing is, it's kinda hard to downplay this information -- when people write something that is based on FICTION its rarely this detailed -- only person I can think that could write to such extreme is TOLKIEN (I mean he even came up with his own language for Elves, Dwarves and Orcs). You have to be a really really good writer to "invent" such figures.

    I do believe in the GOLD's existence, it will just benefit soo many countries and current officials to keep it hush hush and claim it as a myth. Not because they don't want Marcos to appear good, but because many nation's economy are tied to it.

    If you want a detailed documentation on the efforts of recovering the gold - here is one -- though I will change the term "loot" in the title. It is very complex process, and you will notice banks wont just let this go
