Inquirer.net reports that former First Lady and current Ilocos Norte (Second District) Rep. Imelda Marcos "has emerged as the second richest in the House of Representatives." The report noted: "Based on her 2011 statement of assets, liabilities and net worth, Marcos is almost a billionaire, with a net worth of ₱932 million. She ranked second only to boxing superstar and Sarangani Rep. Manny Pacquiao. In 2010, Marcos was worth ₱623.6 million."

 

Inquirer.net quoted Angie Ipong, secretary general of Samahan ng mga Ex-Detainees Laban sa Detensyon at Aresto (Selda), who said in a statement, "We are very insulted with Imelda's flaunting of her ’wealth,’ while martial law victims are denied justice and indemnification."

 

Inquirer.net noted: "The compensation bill for the victims has been pending since 1998 and has yet to become a law."
