Deposed Philippine president Ferdinand Marcos, charged with his wife of looting their homeland and defrauding U.S. banks, is dying, and charges against him should be dropped, his attorney said Wednesday in New York. At a hearing before U.S. District Judge John Keenan, attorney Richard Hibey requested the charges be dismissed because of Marcos' "rapidly deteriorating physical condition." Keenan made no decision and scheduled another hearing for Thursday. Marcos, 71, is listed in guarded condition at St. Francis Medical Center in Honolulu. He was admitted Sunday for pneumonia in his left lung and bronchial asthma. He initially was placed in intensive care and then moved to regular accommodations.
