P.M. BRIEFING : Swiss Delay Reply to U.S. on Marcos

June 28, 1989|From Times Wire Services

LAUSANNE, Switzerland — The Swiss Supreme Court delayed a decision today on a U.S. request for information on funds moved through Switzerland by former Philippines President Ferdinand E. Marcos and his wife, Imelda.

The court suspended hearings until after its summer recess pending advice on whether Marcos is entitled to immunity as customary for heads of state during their period in office.

Washington invoked a mutual legal assistance treaty in asking Switzerland for help in tracing U.S. development aid funds allegedly misappropriated by Marcos and his wife between 1981 and 1986 when they fled into exile.
