Exclusive by Raissa Robles
Before a Hawaii court over two decades ago, Imee Marcos and her lawyers gave the following arguments to counter a civil lawsuit accusing her of “wrongful death”.
Imee Marcos argued that –
- Yes, Trajano was tortured by her military bodyguards.
- Yes, Imee Marcos knew all about the torture.
- But the case against Imee Marcos should not proceed before the Hawaii Court because this court only has jurisdiction for torture acts that happen in the US.
