Marcos Martial Law Victims


In 1997, the Federal Supreme Court of Supreme Court of Switzerland allowed the transfer of $540M to the Philippines with the proviso that PHP 10B would be allotted for martial law victims.  The issue however is that the Philippine Congress  must pass a law to release the funds to the victims which up to now, February 2011 it has not done.  Only final approval from the bicameral committee was pending from the last Congress.
