Marcos calls for
MANILA, Philippines (UPI) - A
group of 29 prominent Filipinos
yesterday asked the supreme court to
declare a mistrial in the case of ar-
med forces chief Gen. Fabian Ver and
25 others charged in the 1983 murder
of opposition leader Benigno Aquino.
The petition urged the high tribunal
to stop a three-judge court from ren-
dering a verdict. The court ended
;seven months of hearings in Septem-
'ber and is expected to hand down a
decision by next month. Ver is expec-
ted to be acquitted.
" THE PETITION asked the tribunal
:to review the acts of both the trial
'court and the state prosecutor.
"The proceedings were patently
null and void for being grossly
'violative of the due process of law,"
said the petition, signed by prominent
*businessmen, a former Supreme
Court justice, educators, human
Frights attorneys and opposition mem-
bers of parliament.
The petitions charged the state
prosecutor with being "manifestly
dbiased and impartial in favor of the
accused" and having riot "exerted
earnest, genuine efforts to pursue all
the evidence available under the law
of the land."
Ver and the 25 others - military
men and one civilian - were charged
in connection with the Aug. 21, 1983,
murder of Aquino, shot while being
escorted by a soldier from a jet that
had returned him from three years of
self-imposed exile in the United
The military contends that Aquino,
President Ferdinand Marcos' ar-
chrival, was shot by alleged com-
munist-hired assassin Rolando
Galman, who was himself slain by
soldiers moments later.
In addition to the 29, the petition
also was signed by Galman's mother
Saturnina and his son Reynaldo.
Ver, a loyal Marcos ally, and eight
others are charged as accessories for
allegedly attempting to mislead an
earlier civilian inquiry and face a
maximum 20 years in prison. But the
Supreme Court ruled in June that
their testimony before that panel
could not be used against them.
One civilian faces a life term as an
alleged accomplice and the others are
charged as principals and face a
maximum death penalty if convicted.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Thirteen
years have passed since Congress
passed a law seizing Richard Nixon's
presidential papers and tape recor-
dings. Despite orders that documents
dealing with Watergate be released
"at the earliest reasonable date," not
a single one has been made public.
Nor has anyone been able to listen
to the 4,000 hours of tapes. Only
1211, hours of the recordings are public
- because they were used in the
criminal trials of Nixon's subor-
THE LATEST attempt by the
National Archives and Records Ad-
ministration to provide for public ac-
cess to the 40 million pages of Nixon
materials is stalled in the
bureaucracy, although the Reagan
administration denies there is any
The archives sent a final draft of
proposed regulations to the White
House's Office of Management and
Budget for routine approval on July
Rober Bedell of OMB acknowledged
receipt on July 23 and said without
further explanation that "it has been
necessary for us to extend our review
NOTHING HAS been heard about
the regulations since then. No
regulations, no public access.
The proposed regulations represent
the sixth attempt to let the public see
the Nixon documents. The first three
sets of regulations were rejected by
Congress, the fourth was submitted
and withdrawn for legal reasons. The
fifth set was ruled unconstitutional by
a federal court.
One problem may be that many
people who worked for Nixon are, or
have been, associated with the
"THEY ARE extremely concerned
about access to the public record of
their activities - even though the
stuff we are trying to open is like the
stuff opened up for years in other
presidential libraries," said one
