NUJP hits Facebook for censoring anti-Marcos posts


MANILA, Philippines — The National Union of Journalists of the Philippines on Wednesday called out Facebook for taking down posts condemning the alleged compromise deal between the Philippine government and the Marcos family. The members of Marcos family have always maintained that they did not loot the country during their patriarch’s 21-year rule. But various courts in Switzerland, Singapore, United States and the Philippines have held that part of the Marcoses' wealth is ill-gotten. Marcos’ successor, Corazon Aquino, formed the Presidential Commission on Good Government to recover ill-gotten wealth from the Marcoses and their cronies. The commission was able to recover P170.4 billion of ill-gotten wealth as of last year.
