Ferdinand Marcos Jr.'s spokesman on Wednesday ignored a question on how the leading presidential candidate would deal with a contempt order against him issued by a United States district court.

"Next question," Atty. Vic Rodriguez said when asked if Marcos had found a way to face the contempt order after a US official said that its government was willing to work with the next president "on key human rights and regional priorities."

A contempt of court order has been issued for Marcos' refusal to cooperate with the District Court of Hawaii, which in 1995 ordered the Marcos family to pay $2 billion of plundered wealth to victims of the administration of his father, the late former dictator Ferdinand Marcos.
