Former Philippines President Ferdinand Marcos and his wife, Imelda, facing contempt charges, agreed to provide foreign financial records, fingerprints and voice and handwriting samples for scrutiny in a civil case.

U.S. District Judge John Walker issued a consent order late Monday in Manhattan saying the Marcoses had agreed to comply with a long-standing request for the information by 6 p.m. Friday, Hawaii time.The judge, who is a cousin of President-elect George Bush, issued a contempt of court order on Aug. 11 to force the couple to answer subpoenas from a federal grand jury.

The compliance announcement came only hours after the U.S. Supreme Court vacated a temporary stay of the contempt citation.
