Imelda Marcos Jewels Put On Hold


Imelda With Her Big Emerald Ring And Earrings

Imelda is not only into shoes but her hoard of jewelries would be the envy of many countries dictators’ wives too.

Good to know what is going on in Philippines regarding the former First Lady who is still going strong at 80 and during last month election still won a seat in the lower house of the country’s parliament.

Philippine President Gloria Arroyo on Thursday called off her

administration’s efforts to sell the seized jewels of former first lady Imelda Marcos, saying this decision should be left to her successor.

The jewelry collection, which Manila once said was worth 336 million dollars, was seized after a popular revolt in 1986 toppled Ferdinand Marcos from power, sending him and his wife Imelda into exile in the US.

The collection includes a ruby pendant as large as a thumb and a 100-carat diamond necklace.

The government has charged that during the 20 years he was in power, Ferdinand Marcos, Imelda and his family stole billions from the state.  Imelda Marcos became famous for her jet-setting lifestyle during her husband’s presidency, amassing a huge collection of shoes and spending large amounts on luxuries while her country sank into poverty.

Hundreds of criminal and civil charges have been filed against Imelda Marcos, but she has never been convicted and in this month’s national elections won a seat in the lower house of the country’s parliament. Her son was also elected to the senate, while one of her daughters was elected as governor of the family’s home province.

  1. Hello MontyHall

    ha ha ha you really made a very interesting comment here.

    I have worked with Filipinos before and they are smart. But there is a high population who are poor and are not educated to a level where they can differentiate between a despot and a good leader.

    Remember the previous last two president, the actor, Estrada. When he became President I spoke to a senior Filipino consultant, and we predicted that his presidency would come to an end soon.

    thank you again MontyHall

  2. Apparently, Americans aren’t the only people who’ve been duped by their “leaders”.

    I can’t believe the Filipino people have allowed the Marcos family to go free, and have voted them into office.

    The only explanation is that Filipino voting is heavily rigged, and/or that the Filipino people get too many laughs from seeing that fat Narcissist sow (no offense to domestic swine intended) coated with jewels, standing on two legs, pretending to be a human.

    Imelda, ‘the porcinator’, apparently believes that bling buys class.

    In the final analysis, you can put diamonds on a turd and squeeze it into clothing, but it remains excrement.

    Maybe Filipinos can market brown plastic ‘Imelda’ dolls, with little corn kernels and watermelon seeds embedded here and there…

  14. Imelda still has her supporters no matter how much loot she took from her country. Let her own people judge her then.

  15. Also, Phillipino race is such a forgiving race . No matter what Marcos did to their country they didn’t take it to their heart. Marcos son is also a senator.

  16. I have lots of Phillipino friends in my company. They are very good in drafting working under construction firms. I really enjoy their friendship because most of them are so nice, so friendly and so cordial.

  17. Marcos family had been draining off most of Phillipines wealth during their reign ! Leaving they country high and dry ! Why some people are so greedy until such an extend ??
