The anti-graft court of Sandiganbayan has recently junked the P102-billion forfeiture case against the late President Ferdinand Marcos and former First Lady Imelda Marcos, as well as 11 of their cronies.

In a report of the GMA News Online (author Llanesca Panti), here are the accusations against the Marcoses:
- Participated in extending loan accommodation to Aklan Bulk Carriers, Inc., Fuga Bulk Carriers, Inc., Coron Bulk Carriers, Inc., and Ecija Bulk Carriers, Inc.
- Appropriated revenues derived from the operations of RPN-9, IBC-13 and BBC-2 for their own benefit and unjust enrichment and income

"It saddens the Court that it took more than 30 years before this case is submitted for decision and yet, the prosecution failed to present sufficient evidence to sustain any of the causes of action against the remaining defendants," it read in the decision.
As reported by ABS-CBN News, the PCGG said that the Marcoses had a “$5 billion to $10 billion” deposited and hidden abroad.
In a previous report by KAMI, Sandiganbayan has temporarily set Imelda Marcos free and allowed her to post bail regarding the 7 counts of graft charged against her.
