Requested from PCGG by F. Fuentes at 08:46 PM on Mar 01, 2022.

Fuentes 08:46 PM, Mar 01, 2022

Hello. I would like to inquire if there exists any form of document or catalogue that features all the jewelries confiscated. I am interested to see actual images and to know the precise number of pieces in total from all collections (Hawaii, Malacanang, and Roumeliotes), in contrast to the same images featured over and over again in news reports and online blogs, and also to know the process of how these were obtained.

I have seen a photograph of former PCGG Chairman Andres Bautista holding what seems to be a printed catalogue in a press hearing, and I wonder if there are copies available.
