Presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos on Monday addressed claims that his family was in possession of the fabled Yamashita treasure and the so-called "Tallano gold", saying that he had not seen any of these riches.

"Marami akong kilala na kung saan-saan naghuhukay. Pero ako wala pang nakitang kahit anong klaseng gold na sinasabi nila," he added.
