METRO MANILA - A lawyer of a prominent Marcos clan has sent a letter to Mindanao Daily News clarifying that the former First Lady Imelda R. Marcos and the whole Marcos clan is not in any way related to the latest Youtube hit - Francis Leo Marcos.
Lawyer Vic Rodriguez, spokesperson of the Marcosses said in a statement that Mr. Norman Mangusin a.k.a.
Francis Leo Marcos is unrelated in any way to the Marcos family, and he does not also represent the interests of the Marcos family.
Atty Rodriguez said former first Lady Imelda Romualdez Marcos has written to the National Bureau of Investigation sometime in 2019, asking to investigate a certain Mr Mangusin and several other individuals claiming to be part of the Marcos family.
Rodrigiez also revealed to MDN that his office has also received information that several warrants of arrest for Mr Mangusin have been issued by the courts in connection with Mr Mangusin's alleged dubious activities.
Meanwhile, the beleagured man of the masses - Francis Leo Marcos aka Norman Mangusin has cleared himself of the reported accusations and warrants of arrest.
In one of his videos on Youtube, Mr FLM has explained that all of the cases filed against him were dismissed because of insufficient evidence presented by the complainants in court.
"Lahat ng kasong ito na pinagsasabi nila ay matagal ng dismissed dahil wala naman talaga tayong kasalanan. Ito po ay paninirang puri lamang ng maga taong nasaling natin sa mga challenge natin," FLM explained.
He said if some people thinks he did something wrong in his advocacy of helping the poor Filipinos adversely affected by the coronavirus crisis, he is willing to face them in court.
"Kasohan nila ako kung sa tingin nila naaagrabyado ko sila. Sa tingin nyo ba kasalanan ang tumutulong sa mahihirap? I am willing to face them in court, eh wala naman akong mentions ng pangalan nila eh," Mr Marcos said.
He said even if you do good to the people, there are still others who will put you down because of the toxic nature of Filipino crab mentality.
"Accept ko na po yun. Walang problema roon. Kung sa tingin nila tinamaan sila wala akong pakialam. Itutuloy ko pa rin ang pangangalampag sa mga mayayaman at politikong nagtatago lang sa kanilang mga tahanan," he concluded.
