Greetings! I'm Rick, a fact check reporter for PH media org VERA Files. 

Saw a video claiming that the Marcos family won all 900+ cases filed by the Philippine government, proving they're not corrupt: ​https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=974969829662242

I'm fact-checking this claim: "over 900+ cases were filed by the PH gov't vs. the Marcoses."

Questions: 

1. How many cases, in TOTAL, did the PCGG file against the Marcoses and their associates/relatives, from 1986 to present?

2. How many cases, in TOTAL, were filed in all Philippine courts (including non-PCGG cases) from 1986 to present?
