The anti-graft court Sandiganbayan recently ordered the Royal Traders Holding Co. Inc to pay the Philippine government around P1 billion in Marcos ill-gotten wealth. So, where to find that money, and all the other loot? How has the PCGG been doing it, and what remained as the challenges all throughout these years?

In this episode, Lian Buan talks to international lawyer Ruben Carranza who was PCGG commissioner from 2001 to 2004. Carranza was involved in the landmark 2003 ruling where the Supreme Court declared as ill-gotten $658 million worth of Marcos Swiss deposits.
