Thousands in Manila
march for Aquino

MANILA, Philippines (UPI) -
Thousands of protesters demanded
President Ferdinand Marcos'
resignation yesterday as special
prosecutors drew up charges against
top military officials accused in the
murder of opposition leader Benigno
Aquino.
Led by Aquino's widow Corazon
Aquino, some 5,000 people marched
through Manila to protest a report by a
special commission that named the
armed forces chief in a wide-ranging
military conspiracy to kill Aquino but
made no mention of Marcos.
"We've not gotton to the real
mastermind," said Aquino's younger
brother, Agapito, as protesters carried
"Marcos resign" signs through the
capital.
SPECTATORS jammed overpasses
and sidewalks to cheer the demon-
strators as they marched along a 3
mile route to the Central Post Office,
where anti-Marcos speeches were
made for several hours.
Riot-equipped police SWAT teams
were deployed in jeeps but the police
presence was minimal and the march
peaceful.
A survey by the state news agency
conducted in Manila and 11 other cities
said 32 percent of Filipinos interviewed
felt the fact-finding commission did not
probe Quino's murder "far enough,"
implying it should have implicated
Marcos.

THE FINDINGS of the five-member
civilian commission, reached after a 10-
month inquiry, were turned over to a
Marcos-appointed ombudsman who
formed a team to draw up specific
charges.
"We are using the Agrava Board
legal panel's familiarity with existing
evidence to help us take a short cut in
formulating the charges," said former
Judge Bernardo Fernandez, who heads
a prosecution arm called Tanodbayan
or Ombudsman.
He said the three-man team would
decide soon if evidence justifies filing of
murder charges in the Sandiganeayan
or Peoples Court, which tries cases in-
volving abuse of official functions.
MURDER carries the death penalty.
The five-member commission rejec-
ted government claims Aquino was
killed on his return Aug. 21, 1983 from
three years of self-exile in the United
States by a communist hit man who
himself was shot by soldiers.
The majority report Wednesday by
four members said Armed Forces Chief
Gen. Fabian Ver, 24 other military
men and a civilian were "indictable"
for the assassination.
But the findings by its chairman,
retired Justice Corazon Agrava, issued
separately a day earlier absolved Ver.

Deficit drops
from record
WASHINGTON (AP) - The federal
government ran up a $175.3 billion
budget deficit in fiscal year 1984, down
from the all-time record set last year
but still the second-largest flood of red
ink in U.S. history, the Treasury Depar-
tment announced yesterday.
The deficit total for the fiscal year
which ended on Sept. 30 was $1 billion
higher than the Reagan administration
had predicted in August but was down
considerably from what both the ad-
ministration and private economists
had feared at the beginning of the year.
The $175.3 billion deficit was 10 per-
cent below the $195.3 billion record set
in 1983, the year that Ronald Reagan
had pledged while campaigning in 1980
that he would balance the government's
books.
