US intelligence documents declassified in the s contained further evidence implicating Marcos, provided by a CIA mole within the Philippine army.
Another false flag attack took place with the attempted assassination of Defense Minister Juan Ponce Enrile in President Nixon approved Marcos' martial law initiative immediately afterwards. It is easier perhaps and more comfortable to look back to the solace of a familiar and mediocre past.
But the times are too grave and the stakes too high for us to permit the customary concessions to traditional democratic processes. Martial Law was put on vote in July in the Philippine Martial Law referendum, and was marred with controversy   resulting to A constitutional convention , which had been called for in to replace the Commonwealth era Constitution , continued the work of framing a new constitution after the declaration of martial law.
The new constitution went into effect in early , changing the form of government from presidential to parliamentary and allowing Marcos to stay in power beyond After putting in force amendments to the constitution, legislative action, and securing his sweeping powers and with the Batasan, his supposed successor body to the Congress, under his control, President Marcos lifted martial law on January 17, However, the suspension of the privilege of the writ of habeas corpus continued in the autonomous regions of Western Mindanao and Central Mindanao.
The opposition dubbed the lifting of martial law as a mere "face lifting" as a precondition to the visit of Pope John Paul II.
He used the years of martial law to implement this vision. According to Marcos's book Notes on the New Society , it was a movement urging the poor and the privileged to work as one for the common goals of society and to achieve the liberation of the Filipino people through self-realization.
Economic reforms suddenly became possible under martial law. The powerful opponents of reform were silenced and the organized opposition was also quilted. In the past, it took enormous wrangling and preliminary stage-managing of political forces before a piece of economic reform legislation could even pass through Congress.
Now it was possible to have the needed changes undertaken through presidential decree. Marcos wanted to deliver major changes in an economic policy that the government had tried to propose earlier. The enormous shift in the mood of the nation showed from within the government after martial law was imposed. The testimonies of officials of private chambers of commerce and of private businessmen dictated enormous support for what was happening.
At least, the objectives of the development were now being achieved During his martial law regime, Marcos confiscated and appropriated by force and duress many businesses and institutions, both private and public, and redistributed them to his cronies and close personal friends.
Two of these friends were Eduardo "Danding" Cojuangco Jr. These associates of Marcos then used these as fronts to launder proceeds from institutionalized graft and corruption in the different national governmental agencies as " crony capitalism " for personal benefit.
Graft and corruption via bribery, racketeering , and embezzlement became more prevalent during this era. Marcos also silenced the free press, making the press of the state propaganda the only legal one, which was a common practice for governments around the world that sought to fight communism.
By , the armed forces had quadrupled and over 60, Filipinos had been arrested for political reasons. In , Vice President George H. Bush praised Marcos for his "adherence to democratic principles and to the democratic processes". Marcos and his close Rolex 12 associates like Juan Ponce Enrile used their powers to settle scores against old rivals such as the Lopezes who were always opposed to the Marcos administration.
Enrile and the Lopezes Eugenio Lopez Sr. Leading opponents such as Senators Benigno Aquino Jr. This practice considerably alienated the support of the old social and economic elite and the media, who criticized the Marcos administration endlessly.
At this point, Marcos controlled both the oligarchy and the oligopoly. Between and , Marcos increased the size of the Philippine military from 65, to , personnel, in response to the fall of South Vietnam to the communists and the growing tide of communism in South East Asia. Military officers were placed on the boards of a variety of media corporations, public utilities, development projects, and other private corporations, most of whom were highly educated and well-trained graduates of the Philippine Military Academy.
At the same time, Marcos made efforts to foster the growth of a domestic weapons manufacturing industry and heavily increased military spending.
From the declaration of martial law in until the U. In a U. Senate report it was stated that U. In June , two anti-Marcos labor activists were assassinated outside of a union hall in Seattle. Many human rights abuses were attributed to the Philippine Constabulary which was then headed by future president Fidel Ramos. The Marcos regime instituted a mandatory youth organization, known as the Kabataang Barangay , which was led by Marcos's eldest daughter Imee.
Presidential Decree , enacted in April , required that all youths aged 15 to 18 be sent to remote rural camps and do volunteer work. Marcos recognized the need to established a peaceful relationship with China. In his State of the Nation Address, he said: We, in Asia must strive toward a modus vivendi with Red China.
I reiterate this need, which is becoming more urgent each day. Before long, Communist China will have increased its striking power a thousand fold with a sophisticated delivery system for its nuclear weapons.
We must prepare for that day. We must prepare to coexist peaceably with Communist China. Prior to , the Philippine government maintained a close relationship with the Kuomintang -ruled Chinese government which fled to Taiwan Republic of China , despite the Chinese Communist Victory in , and saw Communist China People's Republic of China as a security threat due to China's financial and military support of Communist rebels in the country.
The Washington Post in an interview with former Philippine Communist Party Officials, revealed that, "they local communist party officials wound up languishing in China for 10 years as unwilling "guests" of the Chinese government, feuding bitterly among themselves and with the party leadership in the Philippines". The Philippine parliamentary election, was held on April 7, for the election of the of the regional representatives to the Interim Batasang Pambansa the nation's first parliament.
All of the party's candidates, including Ninoy, lost in the election. In , the position returned when Ferdinand Marcos became Prime Minister. Based on Article 9 of the constitution, it had broad executive powers that would be typical of modern prime ministers in other countries. The position was the official head of government, and the commander-in-chief of the armed forces.
All of the previous powers of the President from the Constitution were transferred to the newly restored office of Prime Minister. Upon his re-election to the Presidency in , Marcos was succeeded as Prime Minister by an American-educated leader and Wharton graduate, Cesar Virata , who was elected as an Assemblyman Member of the Parliament from Cavite in We love your adherence to democratic principles and to the democratic process, and we will not leave you in isolation.
On June 16, , six months after the lifting of martial law, the first presidential election in twelve years was held. President Marcos ran and won a massive victory over the other candidates. The group was able to return to urban areas and form relationships with legal opposition organizations, and became increasingly successful in attacks against the government throughout the country.
On August 21, , opposition leader Benigno Aquino Jr. He had returned to the Philippines after three years in exile in the United States, where he had a heart bypass operation to save his life after Marcos allowed him to leave the Philippines to seek medical care. Victor Corpuz, were sentenced to death by a military commission on charges of murder, illegal possession of firearms and subversion.
A few months before his assassination, Ninoy had decided to return to the Philippines after his research fellowship from Harvard University had finished. The opposition blamed Marcos directly for the assassination while others blamed the military and his wife, Imelda. Popular speculation pointed to three suspects; the first was Marcos himself through his trusted military chief Fabian Ver; the second theory pointed to his wife Imelda who had her own burning ambition now that her ailing husband seemed to be getting weaker, and the third theory was that Danding Cojuangco planned the assassination because of his own political ambitions.
Martinez also alleged only he and Galman knew of the assassination, and that Galman was the actual shooter, which is not corroborated by other evidence of the case. In August , 56 Assemblymen signed a resolution calling for the impeachment of President Marcos for alleged diversion of U. The Assembly also included in the complaint the misuse and misapplication of funds "for the construction of the Manila Film Center , where X-rated and pornographic films [ citation needed ] are exhibited, contrary to public morals and Filipino customs and traditions.
During his third term, Marcos's health deteriorated rapidly due to kidney ailments, as a complication of a chronic autoimmune disease lupus erythematosus. He had a kidney transplant in August , and when his body rejected the first kidney transplant, he had a second transplant in November Police said he was kidnapped and slain by communist rebels. Marcos dismissed speculations of his ailing health as he used to be an avid golfer and fitness buff who liked showing off his physique.
President Ronald Reagan started distancing himself from the Marcos regime that he and previous American presidents had strongly supported even after Marcos declared martial law. The United States, which had provided hundreds of millions of dollars in aid, was crucial in buttressing Marcos's rule over the years,  although during the Carter administration the relationship with the U. In late , in the face of escalating public discontent and under pressure from foreign allies, Marcos called a " snap election " with more than a year left in his term.
He selected Arturo Tolentino as his running mate. The opposition to Marcos united behind two American-educated leaders, Aquino's widow, Corazon , and her running mate, Salvador Laurel. It was during this time that Marcos's World War II medals for fighting the Japanese Occupation was first questioned by the foreign press. During a campaign in Manila's Tondo district, Marcos retorted: You who are here in Tondo and fought under me and who were part of my guerrilla organization—you answer them, these crazy individuals, especially the foreign press.
Our opponents say Marcos was not a real guerrilla. These people who were collaborating with the enemy when we were fighting the enemy. Now they have the nerve to question my war record. I will not pay any attention to their accusation. Marcos was referring to both presidential candidate Corazon Aquino's father-in-law Benigno Aquino Sr.
Both were arrested and charged for treason after the war. The elections were held on February 7, Cheating was reported on both sides. Two Namfrel volunteers were hanged in Ilocos. The Ilocano votes were enough to overwhelm Cory's lead in Metro Manila and other places.
RAM, led by Lt. The failed election process gave a decisive boost to the " People Power movement. At the height of the revolution, Juan Ponce Enrile revealed that a purported and well-publicized ambush attempt against him years earlier was in fact faked, in order for Marcos to have a pretext for imposing martial law. However, Marcos never ceased to maintain that he was the duly elected and proclaimed president of the Philippines for a fourth term, but unfairly and illegally deprived of his right to serve it.
On February 25, , rival presidential inaugurations were held,  but as Aquino supporters overran parts of Manila and seized state broadcaster PTV-4 , Marcos was forced to flee. Laxalt advised him to "cut and cut cleanly", to which Marcos expressed his disappointment after a short pause.
As per the official page US Customs record, the two C transport planes that carried the Marcos family and their closest allies had 23 wooden crates; 12 suitcases and bags, and various boxes, whose contents included enough clothes to fill 67 racks; pieces of jewelry; 24 gold bricks, inscribed "To my husband on our 24th anniversary"; and more than 27m Philippine pesos in freshly printed notes.
The jewelry included 70 pairs of jewel-studded cufflinks; an ivory statue of the infant Jesus with a silver mantle and a diamond necklace. The Catholic hierarchy and Manila's middle class were crucial to the success of the massive crusade, but only within Metro Manila because no mass demonstrations or protests against Marcos occurred in the provinces and islands of Visayas and Mindanao.
More than a year after the People Power Revolution, it was revealed to the United States House Foreign Affairs subcommittee in that Marcos held an intention to fly back to the Philippines and overthrow the Aquino government. Two Americans, namely attorney Richard Hirschfeld and business consultant Robert Chastain, both of whom posed as arms dealers, gained knowledge of a plot by gaining Marcos' trust and secretly tape recorded their conversations with the ousted leader. According to Hirschfeld, he was first invited by Marcos to a party held at the latter's family residence in Oahu, Hawaii.
After hearing that one of Hirschfeld's clients was Saudi Sheikh Mohammad Fassi, Marcos' interest was piqued because he had done business with Saudis in the past. A few weeks later, Marcos asked for help with securing a passport from another country, in order to travel back to the Philippines while bypassing travel restrictions imposed by the Philippines and United States governments.
Marcos had thought of being flown to his hometown in Ilocos Norte, greeted by his loyal supporters, and initiating a plot to kidnap Corazon Aquino. Learning of this plan, Hirschfeld contacted the US Department of Justice, and was asked for further evidence. This information eventually reached President Ronald Reagan, who placed Marcos under "island arrest", further limiting his movement. In response, the Aquino government dismissed Marcos' statements as being a mere propaganda ploy.
However, Marcos's offer was rebuffed by the Aquino government. Marcos died in Honolulu on the morning of September 28, , of kidney, heart, and lung ailments. Marcos was interred in a private mausoleum at Byodo-In Temple on the island of Oahu where his remains were visited daily by the Marcos family, political allies and friends. The Aquino government refused to allow Marcos's body to be brought back to the Philippines.
The body was only brought back to the Philippines four years after Marcos's death during the term of President Fidel Ramos. From to , his remains were interred inside a refrigerated crypt in Ilocos Norte , where his son, Ferdinand Jr. A large bust of Ferdinand Marcos inspired by Mount Rushmore was commissioned by the tourism minister, Jose Aspiras , and carved into a hillside in Benguet.
It was subsequently destroyed; suspects included left-wing activists, members of a local tribe who had been displaced by construction of the monument, and looters hunting for the legendary Yamashita treasure. Opinion on his burial remains split: On November 18, , the remains of Marcos were buried at the Heroes' Cemetery despite opposition from various groups. The burial came as unexpected to many, as the Supreme Court's ruling still allowed 15 days for the opposition to file a motion for reconsideration.
On the morning of November 18, using Philippine Armed Forces choppers, his family and their supporters flew his remains from Ilocos to Manila for a private burial. Various protest groups formed immediately upon news of the burial. Among those who gathered to opposed the burial were a group of youths. The League of Filipino Students described the transfer of Marcos remains for the eventually successful burial the former president as being done like "a thief in the night. The Kabataan Partylist condemn the burial labeling it as a "grave travesty" and as " galawang Hokage " lit.
Hokage move; Hokage is a high-ranked ninja in the Naruto anime franchise. Ferdinand Marcos was married to Imelda Romualdez , on May 1, and the marriage produced three children: His fourth child, Aimee Marcos born , is adopted.
To help finance a number of economic development projects, the Marcos government borrowed large amounts of money from international lenders. As a former colony of the United States, the Philippines was heavily reliant on the American economy to purchase agricultural goods such as sugar,  tobacco, coconut, bananas, and pineapple   and US corporations prospered. Foreign capital was invited to invest in certain industrial projects.
They were offered incentives, including tax exemption privileges and the privilege of bringing out their profits in foreign currencies. One of the most important economic programs in the s was the Kilusang Kabuhayan at Kaunlaran Movement for Livelihood and Progress.
This program was started in September It aimed to promote the economic development of the barangays by encouraging its residents to engage in their own livelihood projects.
The government's efforts resulted in the increase of the nation's economic growth rate to an average of six percent or seven percent from to The Philippine economy, heavily reliant on exports to the United States, suffered a great decline after the Aquino assassination in August because Filipino business and political leaders who studied in Harvard, Yale, and other US universities began lobbying American and foreign firms to discourage them from investing in the Philippines.
This was taking place at the same time that China was beginning to accept free-market capitalism and American businesses were jockeying to establish manufacturing plants in China. The political troubles of the Philippines hindered the entry of foreign investments, and foreign banks stopped granting loans to the Philippine government.
In an attempt to launch a national economic recovery program and despite his growing isolation from American businesses, Marcos negotiated with foreign creditors including the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development , World Bank , and the International Monetary Fund IMF , for a restructuring of the country's foreign debts — to give the Philippines more time to pay the loans. Marcos ordered a cut in government expenditures and used a portion of the savings to finance the Sariling Sikap Self-Reliance , a livelihood program he established in However, the economy continued to shrink despite the government's recovery efforts due to a number of reasons.
Most of the so-called government development programs failed to materialize. Government funds were often siphoned off by Marcos or his cronies. American investors were discouraged by the Filipino economic elite who were against the corruption that by now had become endemic in the Marcos regime.
The unemployment rate increased from 6. Considering the severe — recession, the Philippine economy annual growth rate from to of 3. It was created to engage in collating, developing and analyzing credit information on individuals, institutions, business entities and other business concerns.
It aims to develop and undertake the continuing exchange of credit data within its members and subscribers and to provide an impartial source of credit information for debtors, creditors and the public. In , Credit Information Bureau, Inc. CIBI is a provider of information and intelligence for business, credit and individuals. Marcos himself diverted large sums of government money to his party's campaign funds.
Marcos's critics charged that policies have become debt-driven with rampant corruption and plunder of public funds by Marcos and his cronies. This held the country under a debt-servicing crisis which is expected to be fixed by only Critics have pointed out an elusive state of the country's development as the period is marred by a sharp devaluing of the Philippine Peso from 3.
The overall economy experienced a slower growth GDP per capita, lower wage conditions and higher unemployment especially towards the end of Marcos's term after the — recession. After declaring martial law in , Marcos promised to implement agrarian reforms. However, the land reforms served largely to undermine Marcos's landholder opponents, not to lessen inequality in the countryside,  and encouraged conversion to cash tenancy and greater reliance on farm workers.
By the early s, forestry collapsed because most of the Philippines' accessible forests had been depleted—of the 12 million hectares of forestland, about 7 million had been left barren. Despite claims made by the book that land reforms served largely to undermine Marcos's landholder opponents, Marcos's government did not distribute to small farmers his political rival Ninoy Aquino's family's 6, hectare Hacienda Luisita plantation, the biggest in the country. While this resulted in annual rice production in the Philippines increasing from 3.
This and other related reforms resulted in high profits for transnational corporations, but were generally harmful to small, peasant farmers who were often pushed into poverty. Victims would simply be rounded up with no arrest warrant nor reading of prisoners' rights and kept indefinitely locked up with no charges filed against them.
A Amnesty International report had listed 88 government torturers, including members of the Philippine Constabulary and the Philippine Army, which was respectively under the direct control of Major General Fidel V.
Rodolfo Aguinaldo,   credited with capturing most of the Communist Party leaders including Jose Ma. Task Force Detainees of the Philippines has recorded: Historian Alfred McCoy gives a figure of 3, recorded extrajudicial killings by the military from to , 35, tortured and 70, incarcerated. In addition to these, up to 10, Moro Muslims were killed in massacres by the Philippine Army , Philippine Constabulary , and the Ilaga pro-government paramilitary group.
Victims were often taken to military "Safehouses",  a euphemism for hidden places of torture,  often blindfolded. They are usually covered with high walls. One would usually detect [safehouses] through the traffic of motorcycles and cars, going in and out of the house at irregular hours. Burly men, armed with pistols tucked in their waists or in clutch bags, usually drive these vehicles.
Various forms of torture were used by the military, and these forms of torture were usually combined with each other. Physical torture was also often inflicted upon victims. Aside from deadly weapons, implements of torture included water, pliers, thumb tacks, ballpoint pens, and flat irons.
Physical torture also took the forms of:. Summary executions,  with often mutilated bodies, sometimes bearing signs of torture, recovered. Anyone could be salvaged - Communist rebels, suspects, innocent civilians and priests included.
TFDP documented 1, "salvage" cases from to alone: Victims included year-old Luis Manuel "Boyet" Mijares tortured brutally, with burn marks, all his nails pulled and removed, 33 ice pick wounds around his body,  skull bashed in, eyeballs gouged out, genitals mutilated,  then dropped from a helicopter ,  Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila student Liliosa Hilao ,  Archimedes Trajano and Juan Escandor.
Enforced disappearances, also known "desaparecidos" or "the disappeared"—people who suddenly went missing, sometimes without a trace and with bodies never recovered. While the numbers of political detainees went down, the number of people killed rose and spiked in , the year Martial Law was officially lifted by Marcos according to Task Force Detainees of the Philippines. According to Senator Jose Diokno , "As torture cases declined, a more terrible tactic emerged; unofficial executions"—suspected dissidents were simply arrested and vanished.
It is hard to judge the full extent of massacres and atrocities which happened during the Marcos regime due to a heavily censored press at the time. The Marcos regime had started to kill hundreds of Moros even before the imposition of Martial Law in Root Causes and Prospects for Peace , a doctoral dissertation by Marjanie Salic Macasalong, the number of Moro victims killed by the Army , Philippine Constabulary , and the Ilaga a notorious government-sanctioned  terrorist cult known for cannibalism and land grabbing that served as members of the CHDF  reached as high as 10, lives.
On the stories of human rights abuses during the Marcos administration, Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. Among the sources of the Marcos wealth are alleged to be diverted foreign economic aid, US Government military aid including huge discretionary funds at Marcos disposal as a "reward" for sending some Filipino troops to Vietnam and kickbacks from public works contracts over a 2-decades-long rule. In Imelda Marcos, his widow, was acquitted of charges that she raided the Philippine's treasury and invested the money in the United States by a U.
In , Vilma Bautista, the former secretary of Imelda Marcos was sentenced to prison for conspiring to sell a Monet , Sisley and other masterpiece artworks belonging to the Republic of the Philippines for tens of millions of dollars. On September 3, , President Rodrigo Duterte said the family of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos is "ready to return" their wealth to the government, possibly through a settlement.
Marcos and his wife, Imelda, were jointly credited in by Guinness World Records with the largest-ever theft from a government: Marcos's government built widely publicized infrastructure projects and monuments using foreign currency loans  and at great taxpayer cost.
Sicat, "a study of infrastructure construction by various presidents shows that Marcos was the president who made the largest infrastructure investment. This is not because he was the longest-serving leader of the country alone.
On a per-year basis, he led all the presidents. Only Fidel Ramos had bested him in road building for a period of one year". To help transform the country's agricultural-based economy to a Newly industrialized country ,  he spearheaded the development of 11 heavy industrialization projects  including steel, petrochemical,  cement, pulp and paper mill, and copper smelter. Likewise, the country crafted a large number of decrees, laws, and edicts during Marcos's term. To put this into context, only 14, 12, and 11 laws were passed in , and , respectively.
Marcos left a mixed legacy for future generations. On one hand, many laws written by Marcos are still in force and in effect.
Out of thousands of proclamations, decrees, and executive orders, only a few were repealed, revoked, modified or amended. More importantly, many people who rose to power under Marcos continued to remain in power or even ascended higher after his exile, thus leaving a further imprint on present-day Filipino affairs.
One of these was Fidel Ramos , a general promoted by Marcos who supervised many terror killings and tortures, who later switched sides and subsequently fought elections and became president himself. I often wonder what I will be remembered in history for. Builder of roads, schools? Uniter of variant and antagonistic elements of our people?
He brought light to a dark country? Strong rallying point, or a weak tyrant? Massive foreign loans also enabled Marcos to build more schools, hospitals and infrastructure than all of his predecessors combined,  but at great cost. Today, according to Ibon Foundation, Filipino citizens are still bearing the heavy burden of servicing public debts incurred during Marcos's administration, with ongoing interest payments on the loan schedule by the Philippine government estimated to last until —59 years after Marcos assumed office and 39 years after he was kicked out.
Corazon Aquino had an opportunity to default and not pay foreign debt incurred during the Marcos administration. However, due to Finance Secretary Jaime Ongpin 's warning  on the consequences of a debt default , which includes isolating the country from the international financial community and hampering the economic recovery, Corazon Aquino honored all the debts incurred during the Marcos Administration,  contrary to expectations of left-learning organizations like Ibon foundation which advocated for non-payment of debt.
The amount of theft perpetrated by Marcos's regime was probably less than that by Suharto on Indonesia, but harmed our country more because the sums stolen by Marcos were sent out of the country, whereas Suharto's loot mostly were invested in Indonesia.
According to Jovito Salonga , monopolies in several vital industries were created and placed under the control of Marcos cronies , such as the coconut industries under Eduardo Cojuangco Jr. During the ICIJ's International Consortium of Investigative Journalists expose of offshore leaks in April , the name of his eldest daughter, Imee Marcos , appeared on the list of wealthy people involved in offshore financial secrecy.
It was revealed that she is hiding parts of her father's ill-gotten wealth in tax havens in the British Virgin Islands. Comparisons have also been made between Ferdinand Marcos and Lee Kuan Yew's authoritarian style of governance and Singapore's success,  but in his autobiography, From Third World to First: It is a soft, forgiving culture.
Only in the Philippines could a leader like Ferdinand Marcos, who pillaged his country for over 20 years, still be considered for a national burial. Insignificant amounts of the loot have been recovered, yet his wife and children were allowed to return and engage in politics. According to Presidential Commission on Good Government , the Marcos family and their cronies looted so much wealth from the Philippines that, to this day, investigators have difficulty determining precisely how many billions of dollars were stolen.
In , some 10, Filipinos won a U. The claims were filed by victims or their surviving relatives consequent on torture, execution, and disappearances. Corazon Aquino repealed many of the repressive laws that had been enacted during Marcos's dictatorship.
She restored the right of access to habeas corpus , repealed anti-labor laws and freed hundreds of political prisoners. From to , a series of suits were brought before U. A jury in the Ninth Circuit Court awarded USD2 billion to the plaintiffs and to a class composed of human rights victims and their families.
Mariano Pimentel held that: The Philippines government claimed ownership of the funds transferred by Marcos in to Arelma S. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
