From the Presidential Spokesperson – On the alleged compromise agreement with the Marcos family

There is no truth to the allegation that the goverment has reached a compromise agreement with the family of the late President Ferdinand Marcos.

Atty Oliver Lozano may have written to Malacanan proposing the creation of a legal team that would study a compromise agreement with the Marcos family. The proposal, however, has not been acted and agreed upon by the Palace.

As to the supposed House bill granting immunity on the Marcoses and allowing compromise on their sequestered assets, the Executive, as we all know, recognizes the separation of powers and independence of Congress. We leave the matter to the House of Representatives to discuss and deliberate.
