“The Tallano clan paid commission to Fr. Diaz and Atty. Marcos in gold, 30% from the principal of 640,000 metric tons. In 1949, the two richest men in the world were Fr. Jose Antonio Diaz and Atty. Ferdinand E. Marcos. Between the two of them, they legitimately earned and owned 192,000 metric tons of gold.” (“The Untold Story of the Kingdom of the Maharlikans, now called The Philippines” from Kilusang Bagong Lipunan (KBL) Website)
Walang ebidensya na nagpapatunay na ibinahagi ng angkang Tallano kay Ferdinand Marcos, Sr. ang nabanggit na ginto. Samantala, mayroong ebidensya ng ill-gotten wealth na nakuha ng mga Marcos sa mga huling taon ng kanilang rehimen.
Ang halaga ng ill-gotten wealth ay nasa 5 bilyon hanggang 13 bilyong dolyar na binubuo ng mga real estate assets sa Pilipinas at Estados Unidos, mga artworks at alahas, shares at salapi sa iba’t ibang bank accounts sa Pilipinas, Estados Unidos, Switzerland, at iba pa.
May kinalaman dito, tignan ang kalakip na komiks tungkol sa isyu.
