The House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Asian and Pacific Affairs held a hearing to gather testimony about plans by Filipino radical and former dictator Ferdinand Marcos to invade the Republic of the Philippines. Marcos' former attorney, Richard Hirschfeld, provided information to the Subcommittee after having secretly taped several of their conversations. In an attempt to preclude Hirschfeld’s testimony, Marcos (via letter) invoked the attorney-client privilege. Members also heard from Robert Chastain, a confidante of Mohammed al Fassi (a Marcos ally) and business partner to Mr. Hirschfeld.

Per requests by the Justice Department, the committee recessed to an Executive Session to discuss sensitive matters. close
