Good day!

I am Matthew Lopez, a graduate student from the University of Asia and the Pacific currently doing research on Art and Fashion during the Marcos Administration. I wish to ask for information regarding the listings of the collection of jewellery seized by the BOC from Mr. Demetriou Roumeliotes, a Greek national who attempted to smuggle these items formerly owned by Former First Lady Imelda Marcos on 9 March 1986 bound for a flight to Hong Kong. 

I hope you can furnish me a copy of these documents which will be vital in this research.
